After reviewing a 4% rise in the S&P 500 for Oct. 24-28 (2:19), positive returns across high-grade and risky credit (5:01) and the week’s macro news (12:20), Jeff Mayberry and Samuel a dive into various gauges of the U.S. housing market (19:53). The hosts observe that, while market activity remains elevated, it has been quickly cooling in the wake of rising mortgage rates and more challenging home affordability. During their discussion of fixed income markets, Jeff and Sam note that another widely watched segment of the Treasury yield curve, the three-month bill to the 10-year note, has inverted – for three consecutive days as of Oct. 28. An inversion persisting for at least five days is needed for a credible advance warning of recession. The two-to-10-year segment of the curve has been inverted since July.
The week of Oct. 31-Nov. 4 promises a surplus of macro news releases and with them likely market volatility. Among those reports (34:57), Jeff and Sam will be on watch for the JOLTS Job Openings and ISM manufacturing reports on Tuesday; the Federal Open Market Committee and Fed chairman news conference on Wednesday; the ISM services report on Thursday; and nonfarm payrolls, unemployment and labor participation reports on Friday.
