Free Report- Current Federal Tax Collections Suggest A Bearish Economic Bounce

Real time withholding tax collections have been strong since I last reported on April 24. The nominal annual growth rate is now 6.6%%.  This has slightly broken a downtrend in these collections over the prior 7 months. But is that bullish?

This is part of a series of free Wall Street Examiner Pro Trader reports that I’m posting as I recover from my emergency open heart surgery on May 3. This report covers current real time and monthly Federal revenue collections and what they tell us about the US economy and stock market.

If you are a subscriber, these free reports will not be charged to your subscriptions. When full publication resumes I will credit your account for all of the downtime since the date of the last report you received. This applies to all Pro Trader services. While there is no timetable, I expect to resume regular publications next week.

I thank each one of you for your patience and support! Thanks to the many of you who have written to me directly offering your encouragement! I truly appreciate hearing from you.

If you are a new reader, enjoy!

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? 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. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.
