By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 23 Aug 2017

At Same Time Informa TrimTabs MacroIndex Makes New High US Equity Mutual and US Equity Exchange Traded Funds are on track for the biggest one month combined outflow since January 2016. That bearish tidbit follows on what I wrote last week, which was that US public companies have announced the least amount of new stock buybacks this earnings season in five years, and have also reduced actual capital expenditures on new plant and equipment so far this year to the lowest level in five years.

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.

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.

Zero Interest Rates (ZIR) Keeping Inflation Low

By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 19 Jul 2017

Oil, as evidenced by West Texas Intermediate (WTI), has been trading in range from about $40 to $50 per barrel for two years. Yet most investors, economists and pundits continue to predict a rebound in energy prices. Despite low oil, there have been consistently huge flows into energy-based ETFs. Indeed, so far this year Commodity Energy ETFs have received new money equal to 5% of assets – despite the fact that Commodity Energy ETF prices are down 22%. In other words, even though investors have consistently been losing money, they keep on believing in higher oil prices. Read more from Charles Biderman.

Curve Flattening Implies Market at Odds With Fed Optimism

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

In the week just passed, the bond market’s theme was of a flattening yield curve as the Fed delivered what glibly could be called a ‘hawkish’ hike while some key economic indicators like CPI and Retail Sales fell well short of expectations. For context, 2s reached new yield highs as the Fed adhered to its projections for more hikes, i.e. the dot plot, while 10s slipped to new yield lows last seen two days after the Presidential election and filling a gap left from that day.

By David Ader 05 Jun 2017

When it comes to rate hikes, Chief Macro Strategist David Ader believes the Federal Reserve has made the switch from being data-dependent to forecast-dependent, and looks set to pull the trigger again this month. And market expectations, which are running close to 100% for another 0.25% increase, are supported by seasonal patterns. Read more from Informa Global Markets by clicking the button below.

A Relief Rally Correction, Budget Handicaps Conviction

By David Ader, Chief Macro Strategist for Informa Financial Intelligence 28 Apr 2017

In the week just passed the bond market gave back some of the gains from its relief rally that essentially came with the French election results a week ago and relative easing of the mood over geopolitics. This is presumably a pause in the grand scheme of things on both accounts and not a definitive “phew” that shoots US interest rates on a particularly bearish schematic. At least not yet.
