Good morning. 2023 was supposed to be a fantastic year for the economy, at least in China. That’s because the country’s harsh Covid-era lockdown policies came to an end in late 2022. But instead of a flourishing economy built by repressed consumer demand to go out, China’s economy has instead stalled out.
That lack of a growth story isn’t hurting the rest of the world too much. The U.S. is in the opposite camp – concerns over a steep recession have instead been guided more toward a soft landing as the labor market and corporate earnings have held up well as inflation has been crushed over the past year.
Investors can still be mindful of China, given its impact on global commodity demand, as well as an indicator of global manufacturing. But China can’t manufacture services that U.S. consumers are demanding right now, such as vacations.

Some investors are getting ahead of events, in anticipation of the Federal Reserve reversing course with its interest rate hikes. With the bank meeting this week, another hike of at least 0.75 percent is likely already in the cards.
The data clearly shows that inflation remains far higher than desired by the central bank, so they’re likely to raise for longer than many would like right now. That’s true even as data like last week’s PMI data showed a contraction in the manufacturing sector. With companies shutting down production, and retailers reporting excess inventory, it’s clear that we’re still early in the stage of the economy clearing out its excesses.
That means the current rally in recent weeks is likely a bear market rally – and that it’s likely to see an end sooner rather than later. Traders should continue to be cautious, and look for some downside opportunities after the market’s recent run.

David Newman suggests YOU Grow Your Business with a Book!
One of the fastest ways to grow your business (especially now) is with a book that positions you as an expert.
Because as opposed to webinars or events a book gives your prospect instant gratification. They are able to download it and consume it the exact moment they see it.
When your prospects download your book, you grow your email list and the book does most of the lead conversion for you.
Since you’re sharing your expertise, by the time you’re on the phone with your ideal client, they already know exactly what you’re about. And that’s just one of the many ways you can leverage a book to grow your business (others include mentioning your book during online events, using it as direct mail to high-level decision-makers, and having the star power of showing up on real shelves in real bookstores and libraries – remember those?)
So now what?
Having a book sure sounds great — but how do you get yours done when you have a business to run?
Meet Alinka Rutkowska, she’s a USA Today and Wall Street Journal best-selling author and the CEO of Leaders Press where she helps busy entrepreneurs get books done. For example she helped the co-founder of DHL International get his book done and onto the bookshelves together with World Economic Forum speakers and Nobel prize winners. Every book she launches becomes a best-seller and she breaks down her process into 17 steps, which she packaged into her FREE book titled, Outsource Your Book.

A naked lady hailed a taxi. She got into the taxi. The taxi driver looked her up and down.
Lady: Have you never seen a naked woman before?
Taxi driver: I have seen before.
Lady: Then, why are you looking me up and down for so long? Can we get moving, please.
Taxi driver: But, I have yet to see any evidence that you have money on you.
- Focus on your business.
- Know distractions when you see them.

How do you concentrate more on business … Integrity and values are critical here!
It’s rare for people to just say yes or no. We seem to need to qualify our responses to the point that we dilute and weaken our meanings. Try just saying yes or no without qualifying or explaining. It’s not easy, but it’s so powerful.
When you’re about to start a meeting or begin a conversation with someone, ask yourself;
“What do I want to say? What specific outcome do I want? How can I make myself easily understood?”
As Zig Ziglar says, “The person who will not stand for something will fall for anything.”
So … what has this to do with a naked lady hailing a taxi … a lot!
If the taxi driver’s primary reason for driving this cab was to be of REAL service … how he got paid should have not mattered. Our clue comes from the lady when she asks, “Can we get moving, please?”
I want you to think about this for a few minutes, okay! 😉
