As the hyenas advanced, the lion roared: Fed Chair Jerome Powell said that if the data warranted it, the central bank was open to cutting interest rates — scarcely two weeks after he saw no reason to raise or lower them. The hyenas backed off: when May nonfarm payrolls came in weak, rather than retreat, stocks rallied as investors bet the Federal Open Market Committee would cut rates, perhaps as soon as its July meeting.
