    DC Stumbles Hint That Markets’ Election Euphoria has run its Course

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 24 Mar 2017

    In the week just passed, the drama of economic data had its intermission with the data frontage subdued and most of that decidedly second tier in nature. The focus of the interest-rate community shifted to somewhat softer (though potentially far more critical) inputs on the political front and as a result found new impetus to sustain technical gains that were otherwise underway.

    The Clouds to the Fed’s Silver Lining

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 16 Mar 2017

    A Bond Guy Takes Another Look at Stocks

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 03 Mar 2017

    A couple of weeks ago I wrote a column “A Bond Guy Looks At Stocks” with a decidedly bearish spin. That was about 60-odd Dow points ago. In the spirit of doubling down I offer a bit more to the very macro concerns expressed in that missive with higher-frequency inputs.

    Fed Ups The Ante: Have Things Really Improved This Much?

    By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 03 Mar 2017

    Driven by data and the latest runes from the U.S. Fed, opinions are changing regarding the timing of the next U.S. interest rate move (sooner rather than later is now the thing, with March as forerunner). Yesterday’s more statesman-like address to Congress by President Trump further engendered the positive narrative as evidenced by market reaction.
