D&D Note (7.28.2022) ~ Earnings Have Been Better-Than-Feared Leading to Stocks Rallying ~

The GDP print for Q2 came out this morning showing a second consecutive quarter of negative growth falling 0.9%.

Following the GDP print bond yields fell below 2.90%.

Stocks started the day down but then looked past the GDP print and rallied into the close.

Earnings this week for the most part have been better-than-feared allowing many stocks to rally even though missing on earnings.

The two consecutive quarters of negative GDP growth is not an official reading that we are in a recession but many call it a technical signal. End of the day the job market is so strong that GDP print really doesn’t matter.
