Market Commentary

What is affecting Maple Ridge Real Estate this morning from a national perspective? Well this is what Maple Ridge Realtors need to know: Markets are on the rebound from yesterday's sell off.  All of the North American equities were up in the early going.  Bond yields are down 1 - 2 bps.


Canada is the source for economic data today and it's a little softer than expected.  Consumer inflation for May clocked-in at an annual rate of 0.7%, up from 0.4% in April.  Core inflation — stripping out volatile items such as some food and energy products — was unchanged at 1.1%, compared with forecasts of a 1.2% gain.


Canadian retail sales for April ticked up one notch, rising 0.1% over March.  Slower sales at gas stations offset gains at car dealers.  Six of 11 sub-sectors reported increases.  Sales volumes rose 0.5%.


In Canada, 95,000 jobs were created in May. Jobs are the centre of attention today, with most interest focused on the United States in Canada that's the biggest increase in a decade and well above the 15,000 forecast.  Most were full time positions in the private sector.  The unemployment rate is down one-tick to 7.1%.


In the U.S. the May, non-farms payroll report beat expectations.  175,000 jobs were created.  The unemployment rate moved up a notch to 7.6% as more people started looking for work.


 The numbers appear to please Wall Street.  U.S. markets all opened higher.  The TSX continued its losing streak.  Bond yields are unchanged to +2 bps.
