  • PPI rises more than expected in June [View news story]
    Core PPI is only up a fraction, a lot of commodities have been falling in recent weeks, oil, grains, etc.
    This should not create any pressure for the FED.

  • More on June Retail Sales [View news story]
    That is still not a great number. What I am missing after seeing the first secound quater results oft the first big names Alcoa, JPM, GS, J&J why is Business spending not going up. That certainly would create Jobs.
    It seems to me that there is no confidence.

  • Banco Espirito Santo tries to reassure market [View news story]
    This was a great reason to start a market correction before the S&P will jump over the 2000 mark.
    Keep in mind:
    So if central Banks are buying stocks there is no reason for retail Investors to sell stocks.

  • Central Banks Buying Stocks - The Beginning Of A Major Trend? [View instapost]
    It is just leading to chaos since capital allocation is completely out of control and flowing into areas where it simply should not go.

  • Jobs gain of 288K; UE rate down to 6.1% [View news story]
    Just for bbro: The Job market is doing great (sarcasm)

    While it’s a number that flops around from month to month — the standard deviation is 287,000 — it jumped by 799,000, which was the largest one-month gain since January 1994. At the same time, there was a 523,000-person drop in full-time workers, the first decline since October.

    “It is unusual,” said Stuart Hoffman, chief economist at PNC Financial Services Group. But he said it could be noise. And he notes that most of the part-time rise in June was not in those who want to find full-time work but couldn’t, and instead in those who voluntarily opted to do so.

    One concern with the Affordable Care Act was that some small employers might opt to get around the 50-person work requirement by replacing full-time workers with part-timers.

    That said, over the past 12 months, 10,000 new part-time jobs have been created — versus 2.12 million full-time jobs.

    And looking at the survey of establishments, it was high-paying sectors that were creating jobs in June. “These are not McDonald’s, Mickey Mouse kind of jobs,” Hoffman said. “This is a better-quality jobs story.”
