    Well, possible US government shutdown (Likely?), Collapse of Italian Govt?, big things happening in Greece, Uncertainty over QE, takes us back to last year when S&P was about 1340?

  • Weighing The Week Ahead: Expect Volatility, Not Clarity  [View article]
    Since late last year, the S&P500 has gone from 1340 to 1700+.
    I get the impression that things in the real world are improving very slowly. Lots of pundits presenting graphs showing S&P500 highly divergent from other indicators and looking over extended? In the next weeks we might see another match for the recent 'June Low'. I am therefore feeling more bearish than bullish in the very short-term. Wait for a big dip and buy it?

  • Wendy's (WEN +0.4%) introduction of its pretzel cheeseburger may have something to do with McDonald's (MCD -2.6%) tepid July outlook, says Janney's Mark Kalinowski who had downgraded the stock ahead of this morning's earnings. The restaurant industry as a whole is facing pressure, says RayJay's Bryan Elliot who recently downgraded a number of names in the sector. A cautious endorsement comes from S&P Capital IQ which reiterates its Buy, but is seeing "increased competition for consumers who are seeking value." Other names today: (JACK -1.2%), (YUM -0.9%).  [View news story]

  • The U.K. government has reportedly attracted proposals for its stake in Lloyds (LYG), including a £10B bid from a consortium led by private-equity fund Corsair, whose senior partners include former trade minister Mervyn Davies. The group could offer to acquire up to half the state's 39% holding at somewhere around Lloyds' share price of 64.63 pence, which would ensure the government broke even on its financial-crisis bailout of the bank. Lloyd's market cap is £46.1B.  [View news story]

  • After a sizable overnight fall, Treasury prices turn green on the session, the 10-year yield falling to 2.22%. The retreat in yields looks to be helping stocks climb off their lows, the DJIA (DIA -0.5%) now off just 75 points vs. about 150 near the open.  [View news story]
    Just like there is a secret data mining project is there a market manipulation project - easily done? If it was announced the markets would crash.

  • Market recap: Stocks ended at session highs, clawing back from declines when the dollar fell sharply vs. the Japanese yen. Trading was volatile with the markets thinner than usual as many investors wait for tomorrow's jobs report, which has taken on added focus as the Fed decides its next monetary policy move. The dollar's big losses helped push crude oil higher, but natural gas prices plunged as inventories rose.  [View news story]
    And the fall and rise was based on - a computer algorithm?

  • Economic Data Poor, But Markets Trend Higher  [View article]
    Bubbles can get rather large, and sometimes take a while to pop. I guess that is the investment challenge? Is the secret to trade rather than invest (e.g. buy the dips sell the rips) until it sorts itself out?
