Isaac's Market Outlook | Views | Opinions

Last week we had FED chair Powell agreeable to slower rate hikes. The NFP numbers were better than expected.

Europe is expected to go into a mild recession based on trajectory.

There are definitely capital flows into China on bets on a path to re-opening post covid.

Services activity, which has been an area of the economy flagged by the Fed as a key contributor to inflation, rose by more than expected in November, stoking fresh concerns about more hawkish Fed monetary policy measures.

The Fed is expected to slow the pace of interest rates at its meeting next week, but recent data including the red-hot jobs report on Friday shows that they are likely have to hold rates at a high level (sufficiently restrictive) for quite a while to get inflation back down to the 2% target.

Despite the weaker start to the week for stocks, some on Wall Street believe that the broader market may have bottomed, and are likely to continue to search for direction in the months ahead.

Make your own play.
