  • Small investors are fed up with stocks, following the typical pattern of pulling back after a big market decline. Among their reasons: economic pessimism, discomfort with banks and fear of another “flash crash.” But Felix Salmon doesn't see a capitulation in their attitude, indicating at least as much downside from here as upside.  [View news story]
    Summer time volume, the machines have the advantage with big institutions sitting on the sidelines. But, look at Thursday when institutions have stepped in during the summer...volume explodes and prices fall.

    As more take withdrawals, the more mutual funds will need to raise cash putting further pressure on the market.

    I know "amazing" was said with heavy sarcasm! If money supply was stable supply/demand picture would be much more clear! but, come on, continue to devalue a currency and you screw with price in turn screwing with supply and demand.

  • RBS tells clients to prepare for 'monster' money-printing: As the recovery starts to stall, bond strategists dust off Ben Bernanke's freshman Fed speech, which inlcudes this gem: "The U.S. government has a technology, called a printing press, that allows it to produce as many U.S. dollars as it wishes at essentially no cost."  [View news story]
    Bottom line: Commodities and stocks always do very well when central banks flood the market with cash.

    We, too, have a historical factor from a few different angles: June rallies often fail, no big uptrend have begun in June, and after a historical run since March 2009 it is highly unlikely new highs will be hit again until a few years from now.

    1907-1915
    1938-1945
    1974-1982

    But, as you suggest anything can happen here especially with the Federal Reserve keeping the flood gates wide open.

    The continued pumping of cash into the system ultimately will float into the stock market and bonds.

    Long-Term Capital Management dominated trading in the mid 90s only to see their failure in 1998. The market will adjust and these guys will fail to adjust. A great equalizer the market is always searching for balance and this time will not be any different.

  • BofA: 'Overweight Equities, Underweight Bonds' [View article]
    The pressure on long term rates will continue to grow as inflation expectations grow from the Federal Reserve keeping the flood gates open.

    However, coming in the near future we'll see the stock market correct.

    There are malls in the middle of nowhere in China without highways to feed traffic into them.

    I'd be cautious with Chinese Real Estate
