HOLIDAY PAUSE... AND INTO A STREAM OF NEW DATA
December is here and after a small pause, it looks like we're heading into December with a ton of data releases, new reports, and a bit of insight into what's to come. For many, these new reports will give an indication of the near 2023 future and in a way, it feels like the future is loading and about to release.
SO, WHAT CAN WE EXPECT THIS WEEK?
A big amount of economic releases as Wall Street heads into the final month of 2022 and braces for the Federal Reserve’s last possible interest rate hike of the year.
The government’s monthly employment report, data on the housing market, GDP growth, PCE inflation, and a reading on consumer confidence are some of the many highlights we will see in the coming days. And analysts are already talking about what they expect those reports will say.
The Labor Department’s latest employment report will release at 8:30 a.m. ET Friday morning.
Economists expect nonfarm payrolls rose by 200,000 last month, according to estimates from Bloomberg. If this is true, it would mean a downtrend in the labor market still-robust hiring on a historical basis. This could affect rates and push the FED to higher ones.
The personal consumption expenditures (PCE) price index is out Thursday. Yahoo Finance said that PCE is expected to show a 0.4% rise in October, up from 0.3% during the prior month, according to Bloomberg estimates. Over the prior year, PCE inflation is expected to have eased to a rate of 6% from 6.2% previously. And they do not expect the Fed to change until U.S. PCE inflation falls below 4%.
