How The DJIA & NASDAQ Can Affect Rates

Commentary: The Labor Department’s June Income & Spending report showed personal income rose 0.4% -- but spending posted a more modest gain of 0.2%. More importantly, the personal consumption expenditure component of the broader report, one of the Fed’s favorite measures of inflation at the consumer level, posted a very modest gain of 0.1%. Mortgage investors shrugged.



In a separate report, the private Institute of Supply Management said a survey of their members showed manufacturing activity cooled in July to a reading of 52.7% from 53.5% a month earlier. Readings greater than 50% indicate expansion in the sector.



The main components of the index were mixed, new orders rose 0.5% but the employment index slumped 2.8% while overall production gained 2.0%. The data suggested momentum is beginning to fade in the manufacturing sector as a strong dollar takes a toll on overseas demand and slowing business expenditures here at home combine to retard growth.



Mortgage investors cautiously pushed rate sheet prices higher as many see last Friday’s weak employment cost index and today’s soft manufacturing sector numbers as reasons the Fed may find it necessary to hold-off on plans to push their benchmark short-term interest rates higher in September. The upcoming employment report will either confirm this growing bias among investors – or render it highly suspect.



Friday’s July nonfarm payroll report is currently projected to show the economy created 225,000 net new jobs during the month while the jobless rate remained unchanged at 5.3%. A headline payroll number of 240,000 or more together with a jobless rate of 5.2% or less will almost surely put noticeable upward pressure on rates -- while a July payroll number of 225,000 or less and a jobless rate of 5.3% or more should prove supportive of the prospects for steady to perhaps fractionally lower rates.
