Bond markets were already giving up a portion of the previous week’s big gains before a strong NFP Jobs Report sent the benchmark 10-year Treasury Bond firmly above 300 basis points, ending the week near 3.08%.
A strong labor market gives the Fed the all-clear for additional rate hikes, but with labor participation falling, and wages slowly creeping higher, the tight labor market could continue to keep inflation hot even while the economy shows signs of cooling.
This could mean the Fed will need to remain aggressive even after certain market sectors, such as housing, start to slide.
The data clearly shows we are in a housing bubble even bigger than in 2006. Will Fed rate hikes be what finally pops this epic bubble, or has it already popped? Tune in to find out.
