Economic outlook

The state of the job market will be on display this week as a bevy of employment data is due, including the JOLTs report.

How service providers and manufacturers are faring in the current environment will also come into focus as a result of this weeks economic data.

Investors will get a better sense of how the job market is holding up this week with a slate of employment data on the agenda. The economy is showing signs of a slowdown and costs are rising at the same time. Businesses are reacting by cutting costs. How this is impacting the labor market will become clearer with the JOLTs report for June, Julys unemployment rate and weekly jobless claims all being released.

On the manufacturing and services front S&P Global will release its final readings for July, while the ISM services report on business is also due. Combined, investors should end the week with a better sense of where the economy is heading amid rising interest rates and soaring inflation.

1. Today: Pers income, consumer spending, PCE inflation; Employment Cost Index; Consumer sentiment

Eeps. in 15 minutes, except for the Cons sentiment at 10a

Will be interesting since everything the NBER will be looking at to call recession or not is getting a lot of scrutiny.

https://www.democraticunderground.com/100216978442#post8
the two measures we (NBER) have put the most weight on are real personal income less transfers and nonfarm payroll employment.
https://www.nber.org/research/business-cycle-dating

REAL PERSONAL INCOME: https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/RPI -- been declining since March 2021. Dec'21: 17.791 T$, May'22: 17.700 T$

Real personal income excluding current transfer receipts (W875RX1) https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/W875RX1
Jan 1: 14441.0, Feb 1: 14484.3, Mar 1: 14442.9, Apr 1: 14487.7, May 1: 14501.8
May 1: +0.4% increase since Jan 1, so not terribly robust, but it is positive.

Of course, the nonfarm payroll employment has been great:

Monthly changes: https://data.bls.gov/timeseries/CES0000000001?output_view=net_1mth

But the Household Survey's Employed has been anemic of late:
