The major indexes slid lower on strong jobs data — and more in Thursday’s stock market recap.
The ADP private payrolls report came in well above estimates, with employers adding 235,000 jobs in December. Wages also rose more than expected.
Meanwhile, weekly jobless claims came in below expectations. Continuing claims also decreased.
With all signs pointing to the job market remaining strong, investors fear the Federal Reserve will continue hiking rates even longer.
In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss the key levels for upside and downside for the major indices… when the current consolidation will end and a new trend will begin… an update on momentum including which sector is most vulnerable… an update on today’s Fed data and what the bond market is pricing in… plus my top ETF and option pick!
