Financial “hurricane” warning as investors debate recession forecast
🌪 Hurricane warning. Banking CEO Jamie Dimon warns of economic “hurricane” brewing with storm of macro issues like #UkraineCrisis, #SupplyScare, #InflationFears and #RisingYields. Markets continues to debate #RecessionWatch odds.
🛢 Oil boost. OPEC agreed to increase oil production by almost 50% in July and Aug－could partially offset shortage driven by sanctions against Russia for atrocities in #UkraineCrisis. Crude oil prices initially dipped, but recovered as producers may not adjust as quickly.
💼 Strong jobs report. US added 390K new jobs in May－higher than expected signaling continued economic strength. It was a double-edged sword as strength also makes it less likely for Fed to adjust aggressive #RisingYields hikes in fall. S&P 500 ends down -1% in volatile short week.
