Our Kansas City Financial Planner Weekly Roundup
Hello everyone and welcome to another edition of the NextGen Wealth Weekly Roundup. Hope you’re having a great week!
Well after a rough week of losses in the market, we saw stocks climb as the latest job report was released today. The report showed the U.S. job market is continuing to grow, although slowly. It is growing enough though for the unemployment to drop to a record 50-year low from 3.7% to 3.5%.
The number of jobs added last month was slightly less than expected, and below the pace set from the 168,000 jobs added in August. The growth in worker’s wages was also weaker with zero growth. But, on a positive note, hiring in prior months was stronger than expected.
If the job market can continue to remain strong, it would allow households to continue spending. Consumer spending has been the stronghold of the economy recently, especially with the trade war happening.
Rate-cut expectations have been high as of late, but we will have to wait and see the outcome of the Federal Reserve meeting set for later this month.
So enough of my commentary, let’s jump in and check out some of the best articles I ran across from the past week. Enjoy the weekend and find some time to relax.
