    Boomers with kids graduated from college and are independent today suddenly found more happiness with single income which enticed many moms leaving the work force. Further well over 10,000 boomers are at 67 when they can kiss their 9-5 tread mill adios and begin to take social security.

    Yikes, down 46.7% revenue Y2Y !!! The casinos must be like a ghost town as in the depth of the Great Recession in 2008/2009. The Indian establishments must be taking in all those sinners instead.

  • The 170% Gap In S&P Earnings Projections  [View article]
    The 666 bottom could well have been 400 if not for the zirp, QEs, TARP, Detroit bailouts, Cash for Clunkers, Shovel Ready Stimulus, market halts ... not unlike what the Chinese are doing today.

  • Citadel trading account suspended by China regulator  [View news story]
    Another take is that the regulator has succeeded to stop the decline further than -30% in June when it was poised to crash like NASDAQ did in 2001/2002 and S&P in 2009 to 666 and beyond.

    Compelling data analysis. While past does not guarantee future results, but so far the chart said it has over the long haul.

    Market has been bouncing on the flat line all year. The long awaited correction of 10% to 20% may be just around the corner. With rate hike and UE rate near 5%, time to take profit off the table if you have not.

  • Employment Cost Index  [View news story]
    Drew,

    Yesterday, bond king Bill Gross penned an article that zirp is hurting the economy. Cheap money is doing nothing but companies buying back shares and paying dividends. The core employees get all the loot and everyone else are on charity compensation rates.

    Gayle,

    The recovery is getting long in the tooth, over 6 years already. No expansion last forever.

    Losing those high paying oil jobs might well be the reason that employment cost is up at such a low level. While its related jobs are also at risk, hope the tech, medical, constructions, auto and infrastructure jobs are opportunities for some of them.

  • Stocks remain the same after FOMC statement  [View news story]
    The fed's mandate is not to protect asset prices, dollar or economy but only on inflation and employment. Employment is far from deserving zirp and inflation may soon come fast and furious with wage pressure.
