    Bullish Edge in Range Context

    By David Ader 11 Aug 2017

    I suppose that in the week just passed the big story that kept yields from doing anything major (other than edging lower sans drama) was the rhetoric between Trump and Kim Jong Un which is notable in itself. This hints that the domestic data was worthy of a yawn, which it was, even though my take was that it points to ongoing slow-mo growth that doesn’t do a thing to threaten more intense Fed action or provide solace to the bond bears out there. Nor, for that matter, does it do all that much for the bulls. Fence sitters rejoice. Read more from David Ader's latest musings.

    The Trump Economy and Stock Market in Sweet Spot

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 08 Aug 2017

    Much to my surprise it appears that the US economy and the stock market are in the Trump Sweet Spot. Yes, the stock market has been consistently rising under Trump, but then the stock market had been consistently rising for as-long-as central banks have been printing money. But the surprising part is that ever since Trump was elected in November, notice below that our proprietary TrimTabs Macroeconomic Index has been rising. The TrimTabs Macroeconomic Index is a correlation weighted composite index of weekly leading economic indicators. The indicators include data on housing, manufacturing, and the labor market.

    On to Neutral, Balance Between Labor and Inflation and Demand

    By David Ader 04 Aug 2017

    In the week just passed, Treasuries bull flattened largely on the back of a set of soft data leading up to NFP and ancillary issues that have been ongoing (Washington stuff, FX influences) and a teeny bit of reduction in the market’s odds for a Fed hike later this year. Dec Fed Funds edged to 1.21+%, the lowest they’ve been since the middle of May. Hike probabilities sank to 36.5% for that month. Read more from David Ader's latest musings.

    VIX – The Canary in the Stock Market Coal Mine

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 04 Aug 2017

    Low VIX Due to Belief that Central Banks Have the Market’s Back However When The VIX Surges Again, Watch Out Below. The VIX, the acronym for the price volatility index of the S&P 500 (also called the Fear Index) has been trading at below 10 – the lowest since December 1993. The bigger the price changes over a short period of time, whether up or down, the higher the VIX. Read more from Charles Biderman.

    Personalised Banking: Amending Notification Preferences In-App

    By Mapa Research 31 Jul 2017

    This Mapa Research report assesses mobile banking customer experience, in particular how providers are giving customers more control and personalisation within apps by letting users adjust how and when they are sent notifications and alerts. Most of the banks monitored by Mapa Research send alerts to customers for various reasons - based on spending limits, when payments are made, when the account balance goes below a certain amount, and so on. What is becoming more common is banks allowing customers to amend their notification preferences - how and when an alert is sent to them - within the mobile banking channel (in the app). Around 36% of the banks we monitor in our Mobile Banking Dashboard allow customers to amend alerts in-app.

    Defensive Into Data Mass, Low Inflation Providing Little Solace

    By David Ader 28 Jul 2017

    In the week just passed perhaps the most anticipated event, though anticipated largely in void of any drama, was the FOMC meeting which delivered exactly what was expected. In short, there were only very modest changes to the words from the June meeting; the market’s subdued reaction reveals all. Read more from David Ader's latest musings.

    Biderman on Markets: Zero Interest Rates Creating Lemmings Heading Towards The Inevitable

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 26 Jul 2017

    For as long as both the European, UK, and Japanese central banks keep printing money the global stock market rally will continue. For as long as the rally keeps going, more and more money will flow into Exchange Traded Funds that passively invest in all the major market indices. However, when the global central banks stop printing money and thereby cease creating asset price inflation; the resulting plunge in stocks will look very similar to lemmings going over the cliff.
