Jeff Kilburg, investment director at Sanctuary Wealth, believes that the Treasury market is the beacon of the stock market. “I don’t think it’s a bear market rebound now, it’s just an adjustment. Many people have become too pessimistic. If you look at the Treasury bond rate, although it has risen above 3%, it cannot be maintained. When it falls below 2.75%, the stock market can recover. “
On the data front, the core personal consumer price index rose 4.9% in April, down from 5.2% in the previous month. And this report is one of the basis for the Fed to formulate policy.
“In general, American consumers still have good spending power. Although prices are rising and inflation is added, they still have room to buffer their balances. Obviously, the employment rate is high, so the US spending power is maintained at a Very strong state,” said Brent Schutte, investment director at Northwestern Mutual Wealth Management, on Yahoo Finance Live.
