- Making a big ruckus in this morning's news is the European Court of Justice's ruling that deemed a 15-year-old data-sharing pact between the EU and U.S. invalid. The decision cannot be appealed.
- "Legislation permitting...access on a generalized basis to the content of electronic communications must be regarded as compromising the essence of the fundamental right to respect for private life," Europe's highest court said in a statement.
- The ruling has significant implications on how internet groups can operate in the 28-member bloc, and will likely force thousands of companies to overhaul their businesses to avoid breaking the law.

- The financial sector (NYSEARCA:IYF) is far and away the leader in U.S. sector ETF outflows year-to-date, with $4.89B exiting, according to XTF.com. Not surprising, as the sector's been one of the poorer performers even after a nice rebound in February.
- The behavior contrasts with what's happening in energy (NYSEARCA:XLE), where bottom fishers have helped those ETFs see inflows of $2.97B - more than any other tracked sector in 2015.
- Also notable for outflows are industrials (NYSEARCA:XLI) and tech (NYSEARCA:IYW) - this despite market-beating returns so far this year.
- The other sector seeing sizable inflows is health care, with a net $2.74B coming in amid the strongest returns of all the major industries.

- "If we thought it was stupid to invest in public Internet websites that had no chance of succeeding back [in 2000], it's worse today," writes Mark Cuban. While that previous bubble was in publicly traded companies, says Cuban, today's comes from private investors bidding apps and small tech companies to the moon.
- Thanks to Equity Crowd Funding, startup investing is now available to the little guy, and Cuban estimates there are plenty involved, and he has little doubt most, if not all, are underwater on their investments. Even worse, there's no way out.
- An exit, says Cuban, can only come from cash paid out of operations (fat chance) or an IPO, but SEC rules have effectively wiped out smaller public offerings.
- So why is today's bubble worse? "The only thing worse than a market with collapsing valuations is a market with no valuations and no liquidity."

- Some of the fee reductions are more dramatic: The SPDR 1500 Value Tilt ETF (NYSEARCA:VLU) and the SPDR S&P 1500 Momentum Tilt ETF (NYSEARCA:MMTM) are cut to 0.12% from 0.35%, and the SPDR Russell 2000 Low Volatility ETF (NYSEARCA:SMLV) is cut to 0.12% from 0.25%.

- "Safety used to mean gold, US treasuries, and blue chip stocks. Now it means Google, Apple, Amazon, and Facebook," says high-profile VC Fred Wilson while offering his 2015 predictions. Though believing rising interest rates and low oil prices will trigger "a noticeable flight to safety," he sees major tech firms continuing to have easy access to capital.
- On the other hand, Wilson is cautious on the near-term outlook for the budding wearables market (John Legere feels differently). "Apple Watch will not be the homerun product that iPod, iPhone, and iPad have been. Not everyone will want to wear a computer on their wrist. Eventually, this market will be realized as the personal mesh/personal cloud, but the focus on wearables will be a bit of a headfake..."
- He also expects virtual reality to "hit some headwinds" after getting hyped in 2014 following the Facebook/Oculus (NASDAQ:FB) deal. "Oculus will struggle to ship their consumer version and competitive products will underwhelm. The virtual reality will eventually catch up to the virtual hype, but not in 2015."
- He forecasts cybersecurity budgets "will explode in 2015 as every company, institution, and government attempts to avoid being Sony’d." But Wilson also thinks "the hacks will continue because on the open internet there is no such thing as an impenetrable system." Cybersecurity plays: FEYE, PANW, FTNT, IMPV, QLYS, PFPT.
- Wilson, a long-time Bitcoin (COIN, OTCQB:BTCS) believer, once more defends the cryptocurrency. "The horrible year that bitcoin had in 2014 will be a wakeup call for all stakeholders. Developers will turn their energy from creating the next bitcoin (all the alt stuff) to creating the stack on top of the bitcoin blockchain. Real decentralized applications will start to emerge..."

- The WTO's IT trade deal is likely to collapse today due to a stand-off between South Korea and China, which was refusing all attempts to broker a compromise.
- Eliminating tariffs on sales of roughly $1T, the deal would liberalize trade in more than 250 categories ranging from semiconductors to medical devices.
- Countries negotiating the package have set themselves a goal of reaching an accord by this week and further delay raises the risk that it might unravel.
- Previously: U.S., China to liberalize tech trade (Nov. 11 2014)
