Wall Street seems a bit out of breath after its fast climb over the last week. On the other hand, the market is near the top of its recent range between roughly 2750 and 2950 for the S&P 500 Index (SPX), so new buying interest could be hard to find, and a bit of profit-taking appears to be creeping in. One possible economic warning sign emerged early this week as crude prices dipped again following a recent rebound.

Can people please stop talking complete, unmitigated claptrap on the subject of President Donald Trump, Mexican tariffs and the U.S. economy? The panic over the last few days about possible Mexican tariffs is even more ridiculous than the panic we had last month about the China tariffs — and that was bad enough. The S&P 500 is now higher than it was just before Trump shook his little fist at the Mexicans.
Today’s much weaker-than-expected May jobs report is getting a positive read by many as more evidence that the Fed can go ahead and cut rates. A really strong number, one school of thought suggested, might make the Fed less willing to consider a near-term rate cut. A number like 75,000, however, along with wage growth that edged down slightly from April, probably isn’t something that would stand in the Fed’s way.
One thing to consider watching in the report is manufacturing and construction jobs growth, especially considering some of the data from those sectors haven’t looked too impressive lately. Depending on how it turns out, the jobs report might either help solidify ideas of a possible near-term Fed rate cut or argue against it as the next Fed meeting approaches June 18-19. June is the third anniversary of the Fed looking at a disappointing jobs report and deciding against raising rates later that month, something that had been widely expected in the market before the payrolls data hit.
