Interest Rates and Market Reaction

George Chin |

This week’s audio update is focused on trying to clarify the market confusion as jobs data and inflation numbers come in. Sometimes bad news seems to be good news, as well as the other way around. 

Conflicting reactions can make for difficulty in understanding what’s happening. It does not help that the media often focuses on very short-term information. Headlines can be confusing.
Remember, the data is just that, data. The perception on that data impacts market movements and is based on perceptions and expectations. It’s an emotional market; don’t let anyone convince you its purely data driven.
