US / The moment of truth for the job market too

There’s a growing meme that the market and the economy are about to have a date with destiny.

The thinking is this: Markets have surged all year like there’s not a care in the world. On the other hand, the economy has already been buffeted by one major headwind (the end of the payroll tax holiday) and it could be hit by another (the upcoming sequestration spending cuts. As such, we’re about to know whether the economy can really justify the market rally, or whether risky assets will have to come floating back down to earth.

BofA/ML strategist David Woo described this to us as a “moment of truth” for the economy, and anticipated the fight over the sequester (which takes place over the coming weeks) will be where it all happens.

Other folks have called this a “tipping point” for the market, but it’s basically the same idea.
