Why the Fed is celebrating after jobs week
SEPTEMBER 1, 2023
Jobs week cleared up the skies for the Federal Reserve members, who are smiling — big time — after a series of data lines gave them what they wanted: a softer labor market! While the labor market isn’t breaking , it has become more pliant in the data lines the Fed focuses on. After Friday’s jobs report , which had some one-time variables, we can say that the economy is heading into an area where the Fed will feel much more comfortable, and we should not have any more rate hikes.
