Market recap: It's "like watching paint dry" - with nothing settled in Europe and waiting to see what the Fed will do, the market could drift along on miniscule volume for the rest of the summer. Diminished expectations for inflation in China prompted speculation that Beijing eventually could join European and U.S. central bankers in stimulating growth. NYSE gainers edged losers six to five.

    The stock market is just one slice of the Market. If you look at Treasuries, Natural Gas, Grains even currencies you'll see where the action is heading. http://bit.ly/P2WAY9

    When inflation is really low, that's a sign that the economy is not doing so well eh?

     

    So on the one hand people can say that they will join in in the pumping money fiasco... But can pumping money save the world? People don't seem to be spending more cash when they do this so will the jobs return?

    I don't understand why most folks have a problem with a flat market, there's lots of money to be made in them - just like there is in trending markets.

    There is sector rotation ongoing it seems. I can not say my stocks are flat. Mostly green. EXEL had mega volume today and PPHM too.

    I tend to agree with Van Hyder and TruffelPig. There are always good buys out there. For example the Schaeffler Group offered bonds at a value of € 200 Mio. It became so oversubscribed that the offer had to be raised 4 times until finally € 336 Mio. was placed. Definitely a success I would say. ................
