What Friday’s Jobs Report Means for the Fed’s Next Rate Hike

by | Nov 4, 2022 | Market Updates

The major indexes rose as the market digested October’s jobs report data and what it means for the Federal Reserve’s future rate hikes — and more in Friday’s stock market recap.

Nonfarm payrolls came in strong at 261,000 versus 205,000 expected. However, the unemployment rate came in at the upper end of the expected range, at 3.7%.

Earnings season continued with consumer favorite Starbucks Corp. (Nasdaq: SBUX) beating on both earnings and revenue estimates. The company also revealed that store traffic in the U.S. has almost returned to pre-pandemic, 2019 levels.

And in news that heightened fears of an impending recession, Amazon.com Inc. (Nasdaq: AMZN) announced a hiring freeze. This follows the company’s warnings of a rough holiday season ahead.

In this morning’s stock market recap video, I’ll discuss which sector is most vulnerable to downside pressure… if tech has bottomed out… which sectors to avoid right now… whether bonds are set to rally or sink… if volatility is set to rise or fall… which report from the Fed is most crucial… if the Fed will raise rates 0.50% or 0.75% next round… plus the stocks I’m targeting right now!

P.S. Introducing the Quantum Indicator

What I’m about to share may be the most impactful discovery in the history of WealthPress…

On Oct. 8, 2022, an entirely new way to enter and exit trades came to life.

It’s a system that has the potential to anticipate the future direction of the stock market a full day in advance.

I call it the “Quantum Indicator.”

I’m so excited about this new indicator, I just held a special live training event where I revealed how to install and even use it.

A friend of mine sent me this chart about three months ago. I should probably print it and keep it in my wallet next to a photo of my daughter. Given the sheer number of questions I’ve fielded lately, I’ll probably end up showing this chart more than her picture.
