This number reinforces expectations for a September rate cut

Expectations for a September rate cut: Sevens Report Editor, Tom Essaye, Quoted in Barron’s

Stocks Give Back Gains. Bond Yields Spike.

Sevens Report Research’s Tom Essaye told Barron’s the report was more of a “Goldilocks” number, meaning it was “just right.” He cited rising new orders, a leading indicator, and declines in prices that indicate easing inflation pressures.

“In the short term, this number reinforces expectations for a September rate cut (which is positive) but at the same time, and beyond the short term, it does keep alive concerns that the economy is weaker than people think and we continue to think that’s the biggest risk to the rally as we start the second half of 2024,” says Essaye.
