    Markets Will Crash Between Now & When Central Banks Stop Printing

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 19 Oct 2017

    Key Question: Can Central Banks Sep Back in to Save Markets? I have been mostly bullish on the US stock market ever since realizing in October 2009 that the US Federal Reserve and other Central Banks’ money printing had eliminated the market downside.  What should be taught in Stock Market 101, particularly to those seeking to be Chartered Financial Analysts, is that all there is in the stock market are shares of stock.  Money flows in and out of the checking accounts of investors and stock market intermediaries.

    Some Counter Logic with Bonds and Deficit

    By David Ader 13 Oct 2017

    It wasn’t exactly a slow news week, but still the New York Times had the temerity to take away space from any number of its Harvey Weinstein updates to tell us, way back on the 4th page of the business, that “Fed Still Puzzled by Inflation, but Rate Increase Is on Track.”  This has been the story for a year at least and the question of why inflation is low continues to give way to the Fed’s confidence in its models that it will eventually rise.   I get they want to hike, I guess everyone does.  Why they want to hike is another story though centered essentially on the Phillips curve which is rather a faulty, but persistent, argument.

    Discretionary Spending Suggests US Expansion has Legs

    By Marcus Dewsnap 13 Oct 2017

    The US economic expansion is close to 100 months in length. Still short of the record 119 from 1991-to-2001. Still, this suggests there is a good chance the current expansion is at a maturity. On this, an interesting chart came across our desks (courtesy of Pictet) which we've recreated below. It shows US pleasure boat purchases as a percent of total consumption.

    Why This Hiking Cycle Might be Different

    By David Ader 06 Oct 2017

    When do we stop listening to Yellen?  This is, of course, a reference to the impending potential change in her career.  Bear in mind we will likely be listening to her even if she’s out of the Fed – brains, insight and experience do count for something – but her relevance will, like other ex-Fed officials, tend to diminish with time.

    Keynesians Driving the Global Economy to Ruin: $1 of Government Spending is not = $1 of After Tax Income

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 06 Oct 2017

    Followers of John Maynard Keynes tend to believe that $1 of government spending is just as good as $1 of after tax income, if not better. The key message of Keynesian economics is when the rate of growth of after tax profits of both industry and individuals declines, then increased government spending is supposed to not only provide a bridge but enhance an overall business recovery.

    Tax Plan will Boost Deficit, but the Main Game for now

    By David Ader 29 Sep 2017

    THE stories behind the sharp rise in yields over the last two weeks come from the two so obvious areas it’s hard to try and nuance the price action to anything else. There was the FOMC, of course, largely seen as more hawkish (I’d say stubbornly hawkish) in its gentle bias, and the Administration’s rapid move to push for tax reform. The former hit the front end and flattened the curve; the latter hit further out the curve and steepened it back up. Read more from David Ader's latest musings.
