When Good News Is Bad News

Good news is bad news.

We finally got some hard data on the jobs situation, and the picture is better than expected.

Which is, you know, worse than expected.

According to JOLTS, the Labor Department’s Job Openings and Labor Turnover Survey, there are 1.9 job openings per available worker.

That’s a decline since December. However, the 10.824 million job openings surpassed the expectation of 10.58 openings.

Unfortunately, this is one of the most important things the Fed looks at when it is deciding whether or not to raise interest rates.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell is telling Congress – quite openly – that interest rates will likely remain higher for some time.

The question now is whether this will be a “soft landing” for the economy and avoid a recession.

I doubt it.

The two-year and 10-year bond yields have inverted – a traditional warning sign for a recession. And it’s not clear how the Fed can maintain both economic growth and high interest rates.

A lot of garbage investments are going to get weeded out. And high volatility seems inevitable.

This is something to be welcomed. It’s going to be a bonanza for skillful traders who use proven techniques and hard evidence. It’s going to be a disaster for those who pretend like we are back in 2021.

Don’t hesitate to call in fire support. This is no time to go charging in without help. To win in this environment, you’ll need the best at your back.

Keep Moving,

P.S. I’ve found one surprise energy pick that I think is going to be absolutely critical over the next year.

  • Betting On Scripted Results – WWE Entertainment (WWE) has been a major stock to watch as it reportedly examines offers to buy it. However, it’s also looking for other ways to bring in revenue. It’s reportedly in talks to allow people to bet on match results. I hate to tell you if this breaks the fantasy – but the results are scripted. Wrestlers aren’t informed until hours before a m.atch – and something tells me those controls are going to have to be even stricter going forward

AMC faces a problem. It needs capital – but it also needs investors who are interested in a short-squeeze to stick with it. Can AMC keep the APEs on board, and still meet its objectives?
