Please explain

Haven't got time at the moment to post as frequently as normal.

In the meantime, if someone can explain to me how this works then that would be great.

From today's The Australian:

Apparently, falling employment + lower house prices = increased stock market.

(Nothing follows)

Stock markets look forwards.

House price / job advert statistics look backwards.

But reduced asset value = reduced borrowing = reduced forward investment.

Add in reduced employment and the forward outlook has to be weak.
