Tax Collections Remain Weak Except At the Top – Why That’s Bad News

Federal tax revenue has cratered thanks mostly to the big reduction in corporate taxes, but withholding taxes have also been weak. Meanwhile, strength in excise taxes and non withheld individual income taxes suggest that the economy is booming in some sectors, enough to keep the Fed on its tightening course.

But what you really need to know is the Treasury cash levels are foreshadowing stock market moves. And that’s bad news for bulls starting in late July. This report shows and tells you why it’s time to batten down the hatches.

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.
