Just proof of market manipulation by the Fed, when other indicators still show growth, timing is flawless ahead of holiday shopping and an election. Next step is to show lower consumer confidence and slowdown in new home sales (which is in its natural cycle of slower August and September sales because fewer people move at this time of year). Credit reliability remains strong as does job growth. Consumer sales follow confidence and recovery in weeks, not quarters. I don’t care if intentional, it’s a test of economic pressure. Yes I am an expert.

If there is a recession, it will be because people are determined to make it happen. There’s no reason for it, people just become convinced that it is supposed to be. That is reflected in the bond inversion, not the other way around.

and look at the retail market right now.

Do I look for a new gig?
