    Trump’s Negative Impact on Economy Increasingly Obvious

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 13 Sep 2017

However, underlying the appreciation of stocks and bonds are more and more warning signs that all is not well for the longer term – all due to a growing awareness of the ineffectiveness of the Trump administration.

    By Amey Stone 09 Sep 2017

    Range Changed, but Don’t see Much More Rally

    By David Ader 08 Sep 2017

    It is a rare event indeed to see a front page of the WSJ start with a headline; “Array of Threats Stirs Up Markets” – and then write what’s effectively a Credit Markets column telling you what’s up with interest rates. It’s a fine story, make no mistake, but focuses one’s attention on the recent and still more immediate story which basically captures what’s motivating moves in Treasury yields. To wit, we have 1) Hurricane Irma, on the heels of 2) Hurricane Harvey, 3) ongoing to expanding tensions with North Korea, 4) dovish Fed comments from Fed doves, 5) the steady litany of low inflation figures, and concludes with structural element such as, 6) ‘potentially intractable forces, such as globalization and technological advances’ and global debt levels and the aging population.

    Data Balance Tips Scales a Tad to Bulls

    By David Ader 01 Sep 2017

    In the week just passed, the Treasury market eked out some further gains largely on the back of non-economic events like North Korea’s missile across Japan and the floods in Texas where some estimates of damage exceed $100 bn to as much as $190 bn (AccuWeather). The economic impact, of course, remains an unknown but that it will initially be a drag on GDP is understood. Katrina cost $160 bn. The very tame NFP report came after the fact but does enhance a bullish perspective. Job gains were weaker-than-expected at 156K overall, 41k worth of downward revisions, an uptick in UNR and remarkably tame 0.1% rise in average hourly earnings. Ouch.

    PayPal and P2P Payments: A strategic push for market share

    By Mapa Research 30 Aug 2017

    PayPal has spotted an opportunity to grow its market share in peer-to-peer (P2P) payments. The ultimate goal is to offer more flexibility in terms of how customers send and receive money from each other. By bringing its proposition closer to customers, the provider is offering access to its P2P payments services directly within partnering apps and channels. Strong competition in the market meant that it had to move quickly, resulting in a number of partnerships with leading players in the past year – Microsoft, Slack and Skype, to name a few. This free Mapa Research report looks at PayPal’s expansion strategy in the P2P payments market. Although, partnerships seems to be the main tactic it is also using the PayPal mobile app and the increasingly popular Venmo app to complement the plan. Download the report to find out more.
