Tax Data Supports Fed Continuing to Drain Money Out of the Pool

current data continues to reflect patchy growth. The top line numbers are strong, but there’s evidence of weakness in some areas. It appears that top income earners are paying a lot more taxes and skewing the totals. But they’re the investors, so these increases in income to some extent generate demand for stocks.

At the same time, strong top line growth will encourage the fed to continue to reduce the amount of money in the banking system through its balance sheet “normalization” program.

See why this data is not good news for stocks.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also provide analysis and charts for David Stockman's Contra Corner which I developed for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs in the past 44 years, including a stint on Wall Street in both analytical and sales capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I worked as a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. My perspective is not of the Ivory Tower. It is from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches of the industries that I analyze and write about today.
