Where are the signals of a pending recession?

What is being observed currently in the US is faster growth in food services, entertainment, and accommodation despite the fact that the US Fed has already hiked rates by 5%!

The US economy appears to have a lot of activity and unemployment at near all time record lows.

Not implying that the risk of a recession is 100% removed, just saying that it would take a major change in the underlying economy to push the economy off a cliff.

Today’s economic calendar

It's NFP Day!

  • The consensus of financial analysts is calling for today's US nonfarm payrolls to print a +225,000 to 250,000 jobs number (the number of jobs created during last month i.e. June 2023)

There is a high chance these analysts will miss the mark since the ADP jobs report released yesterday said that private employers added 497,000 new jobs in June.
