As mentioned on Wednesday’s Slow Moe Money Post, this was actually scheduled for the Hump Day, but was ousted due to our continued snail findings of overwhelmed financial institutions across every aspect of the financial world.
With that in mind, this is a bit of a heavier Friday, but all of these missed the Newsletter due, once again, to your great experiences and questions!
TSA Throughput Updates
While not knowing of this data prior to 2020, we have enjoyed monitoring it greatly….
Hat Tip JP and “The Brain” for noticing my bad data chart and repairing … now we are cooking!
While passenger count is gaining steam, especially notice Thanksgiving Holidays ….
We are still well behind 2019, “Normal” numbers!
Vaccine should help, end of year Holidays will be interesting… not to worry we are so enamored you will certainly see a review here!
Indeeds Job Posting Update – Global and Local
In another fascinating find, and once approved from the company for reproduction, we are just at the tip of the iceberg of this data, as there are well over 100 data bases …. as mentioned here, yep we have reviewed all and so far are just monitoring this Global…
As you may know we have found several interesting items to follow this year….
First was the TSA throughput, measuring the upward trend in traffic passing through TSA security … here, here and here
Then we stumbled upon the Kastle back to work index, showing commercial office vacancy rates of the ten largest cities – interesting Kastle is a security monitoring company among other things, but hence the ability to share the data.
Used Auto Prices
Recently through the grapevine we heard stories of used auto purchase increases, which make sense as folks exit the larger metro areas and possibly avoid crowded public transportation …
So here is a longer dated chart …
Let’s look a little closer …magnifying the most recent activity
So this is the Price Index for Used Cars and Trucks from the St. Louis Fed (FRED) database….
Surprising at first, but upon second thought…. not surprising at all !
We will keep track, and hope you find it maybe just a little bit as interesting as we do!
Have a Great “Used Car and Truck Flying off the shelf” Day!
