Bad news is good news for Stocks, again! But is it good news for Yellen?

Here is an article from zerohedge on today's NFP.  For me the key issue is that wages are not rising.  This is not news to me, I have seen wage freezes, or miniscule increases, in several major FTSE100s for some years now.  Low wages hits consumer sentiment as well as having less money to spend.  That means no consumer led recovery, cue recession.  In such an environment the central bankers are stuck, they cannot raise rates until they admit their policies are wrong and this they will never do until the markets do it for them.  I doubt we will have to wait for the US presidential election for the air to start hissing from the bubbles...

    • Looks like it's a flat squib affair for the SP500 - I'm away early next week, but I'd give this until Tuesday (max 3 weeks after the physical date) to do something otherwise I'm marking it down as a failure Which is not bad, out of all the TC's this one is the one to be most concerned won't work, especially during an UP Bullish major cycle, which is what we are in, but the expectation was for the market to react as per May 2012 as shown on the Internal cycle harmonic chart in the post directly above So unless we get a 7%+ correction from the highs next week - I'll simply log this as failed - remember we trade the market NOT the Time Cycle  The small correction into the actual date is NOT good enough to say that was it! - We should be able to see these corrections/upswings clearly on a monthly chart, which means they should be of significance I'll hold off publishing the next Time Cycle just in case something happens next week SP500 Index Daily Chart: data to Thursday 17th June 2021
