Good morning traders!
The S&P 500 ($SPY) is trading below yesterday’s close. Let’s get into it…
After the September jobs report was generally in line with forecasts, the markets are mixed this morning on the recent data. According to Benzinga Pro, the U.S. added 263,000 jobs in July, surpassing the 250,000 jobs that the average economist had predicted. The U.S. unemployment rate was 3.5% according to recent Bureau of Labor Statistics data, lower than the 3.7% level experts had predicted. Why this matters, is that the Federal Reserve is closely monitoring the labor market as it works to reduce the highest inflation in more than 40 years. The next Fed rate decision is November 2nd, 2022.
In the news yesterday, Advanced Micro Devices ($AMD) disclosed third-quarter revenue is more than $1 billion below its earlier expectation due to sluggish PC demand. Given that chips are becoming increasingly important to almost everything – from automobiles to smartphones to defense systems – it has a direct impact on the overall economy.
