CNBC’s Jim Cramer said the employment report released by the Labor Department on Friday has satisfied the market, at least during the transition period.
The U.S. economy added 379,000 jobs last month, the unemployment rate dropped slightly, stocks managed to rebound from the day’s low, and a three-day difficult transaction was made to end this week’s high.
Economists have predicted that the job market in February will grow by 210,000.
Kramer said after the “crazy currency”
After trading in red in the morning, all major stock indexes closed up nearly 2%. The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 572 points, or 1.85%, to close at 31,496.30, and closed up 1.82% after a week of turbulence. The S&P 500 index rose 1.95% on Friday to 3,841.94 points, and it also closed higher this week.
The Nasdaq Composite Index rebounded 1.55% to 12,920.15 on Friday after it rushed higher on Thursday. As growth stocks were sold off, the technology blockbuster index fell 2.06% this week.
Kramer said that as the United States continues to recover from the business lockdown and restrictions caused by the coronavirus last year, the labor report in February may not be enough to push the Fed to raise interest rates to curb inflation and curb economic growth.
“This is a hidden Goldlock report: Due to the introduction and reopening of the vaccine, more people are hired, but not so many, that the Fed will be forced to raise interest rates, and it is indeed left behind. “He said.
Wall Street stands by at any time to see whether the upward trend will continue or the stock downward trend will resume. Kramer added that the bond market remains under control as investors continue to switch from high-growth stocks to value and cyclical names until Treasury yields stabilize.
Long-term government bonds are the leader in loan interest rates. Higher interest rates make cyclical stocks more attractive, causing investors to reduce their appetite for risky assets.
