    US Equity Funds Having Biggest Outflow Since Jan. 2016

    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.

    Has Corporate America Given Up on Trump? New Float Shrink & Capex Plunging - Cash Growing

    By Charles Biderman, Informa, TrimTabs 16 Aug 2017

    Corporate America appears to have given up on Donald Trump by their actions. I have commented several times this year, in print and on CNBC, that both newly announced stock buybacks and cash takeovers of public companies are plunging. So far this summer, corporate buying is at a multi-year low. But what’s new and much worse for the economy is that, according to S&P Dow Jones Indices’ Howard Silverblatt, capital expenditures since the start of this year --when Donald Trump was sworn in --have plunged to the lowest levels since early 2011.

    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.

    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.
