Tuesday’s Factors and Events

Over the last few months, the stock market has displayed somewhat alarming symptoms of the trading equivalent of ADHD. Traders’ attention has shifted rapidly from one perceived influence to the next. Trade in general, and specifically with China, is the current reason for the daily ups and downs, but we have also seen a focus on North Korea, the Middle East, the Russia investigation and, lest we forget, the yield on the 10-Year T-Note.

All these things could be important, but the one most likely to have a lasting impact on the U.S. economy and every U.S. resident is interest rates.

Now that we have established a new range for the ten year above three percent, it seems that nobody is talking about what, just a few weeks ago, was regarded as critical.
