Small Caps, Home Sales, a Bond Market Rally, and When Does Santa Expect a Pullback?

by | Dec 28, 2023

The Nasdaq is up a little Thursday morning, but the broad market is super choppy and fragmented right now, which leads to a low-probability trading environment…

And that means we have to be careful!

We have a couple of important reports this morning in the form of jobless claims at 8:30 a.m. ET, and the Pending Home Sales Index at 10 a.m. ET. And when we have a low-volume environment combined with important data the Federal Reserve watches, that data can have a much larger impact on the market than it normally would. 

Small and mid caps are surging higher right now, which generally means the market believes interest rates are going to come down. 

But as I’ve been saying for weeks now, I think this is a mistake… 

My prognosis is we won’t see a rate cut until May, and maybe even July because they’re still waiting to see what impact the higher rates are having on the economy. 

I’ll cover all that and more in this morning’s “Premarket Must Watch” video!
