    When I travel around the country, one of the questions that comes up often in conversation is, where will the jobs of the future come from? I have a stock answer that I glibly offer: In 1980, the Japanese were beating our brains out. Inflation was well into the double digits, as was unemployment. Finding a job was hard (I know), as one industry after another was being reconfigured and jobs seemed to be disappearing left and right. The answer to the question “Where will the jobs come from?” back then was “I don’t know, but they will.” And they did. Whole new…

    There is an obsession in the marketplace over the date when the Fed will once again begin to raise rates. As if another 25 basis points is going to change the economics on tens of trillions of dollars of investments. But as we reflect on the issue more deeply, it becomes obvious that a minor bump in the fed funds rate will indeed change a great deal of economics all over the world. No, it won’t do much to the cap rate on your latest real estate purchase, but it is likely to greatly affect the pricing of the currency and commodity markets.

The other gives money directly to low-wage workers. The latter is sponsored by Gov. Jerry Brown. And the former, despite receiving near unanimous support from the Legislature last year, died under Brown's veto. The proposed new markets tax credit, which has returned this year after Brown vetoed it last year, would…

That was likely also the case for a lot of investors living in the United States who are similar to me: earning income, investing in the stock market with a buy-and-hold strategy for the future, and leaving money invested during the stickier economic times. Continuing to invest in the stock market throughout the recent recession was an essential part of long-term success with investing. Not all investors had this luxury, as the recession hit hard.

  • Life Is and Isn’t About the Money

    25 Mar 2015 | 7:27 am
    Accumulating money is not a real goal for anyone’s life. Growing wealth is not the point. People don’t work hard because they want to see their bank balance grow; those of us who track our finances and chart our net worth over time aren’t trying to compete in some financial competition. I imagine there are individuals who do have an approach to money wherein the increase of the bank balance is the ultimate goal. But this approach misses the point. Perhaps these savers and earners haven’t given enough thought to why they want to grow their wealth, other than believing…

    Richard Barrington
    19 May 2015 | 6:30 am
    On the surface, savings account rates seem to be stuck in the same rut they have been in for the last couple years; but if you look a little closer, there are some isolated developments that could start to put the interest back in savings account interest rates. According to the FDIC, the average savings account rate nationally is just 0.06 percent — a level that average first dropped to two years ago and hasn’t budged from since. However, some banks are beginning to buck the low-rate trend. Those banks remain exceptions, but the rarity of positive rate developments makes it well…

  • The Power of Apprenticeship in Trading

    22 May 2015 | 2:56 am
    The recent post discussed how we can turn our defeats into development.  Since writing that, I received an email from an accomplished prop trader who leads a group within the larger organization.  That trader had just sustained the worst losing day of his career.  So what did he do to address the situation?*  He stayed constructive.  He wrote a detailed analysis of what he did wrong and how he will learn from the mistakes going forward.  His focus was on making sure this doesn't happen again, not on blaming external forces for his drawdown.  He took…
  • Assessing Demand and Supply in the Stock Market

    21 May 2015 | 3:03 am
    By now readers are aware that measures I track closely are buying pressure (demand) in the market versus selling pressure (supply).  My measures are derived from a decomposition of the NYSE TICK, which is issued by the New York Stock exchange.  The TICK is a running total, updated many times per minute, of the number of stocks trading on upticks versus the number trading on downticks.  My buying pressure and selling pressure measures separate upticking from downticking in the time series, treating strength and weakness as distinct variables.  While demand and supply are…

    I'm looking forward to being part of a very special trader's conference in September featuring Jim Dalton, Jack Schwager, and Peter Brandt.  Details on the conference will be coming shortly.  In upcoming posts, I'd like to highlight a few things I've learned from these seasoned professionals.One of the best posts on trading that I've encountered in years is Brandt's analysis of how randomness affects trading profitability.  The same exact trading methodology can yield winning or losing outcomes over a limited time horizon simply due to the random strings of winning and losing…

  • Joining a Prop Group or Hedge Fund

    19 May 2015 | 3:03 am
    I frequently hear from two groups of traders interested in affiliating with trading firms:  early career traders interested in experience, learning, and access to capital and experienced traders looking to grow themselves.  Two of the types of firms they most often consider for affiliation are proprietary trading groups and hedge funds.  Since I've held full-time jobs at both types of trading firms and been involved in the hiring process, I can offer a few perspectives for those contemplating those career directions.What are the differences between prop groups and hedge…

  • The (Investment) World Is Changing And You Need To Get On Board

    Roger Nusbaum
    21 May 2015 | 8:53 am
    My latest post for Alpha Baskets looks at the extent to which the world, investing and otherwise, is changing and the importance of keeping up. From the post; Capital markets are no different. Certain jobs don’t exist anymore or there are fewer of them (like exchange personnel) and new products have come along that seek to offer new exposures or tap into some trend. Current jobs will disappear (robo advisors will supplant some portion of RIAs even if not a lot of them) and products will continue to evolve. Please click through to read the entire post. The picture is from the prescribed burn…

The week started with a throwback story of an AOL merger and although the first one is generally viewed as a seminal event in the popping of the internet bubble, the latest one might be best thought of as an amusing footnote. Later in the week came a fraudulent buyout offer of the other big multilevel marketing firm. Please click through to read the entire update.

    My latest at AlphaBaskets considers the possibility of bond market upheaval with some ideas about how to manage around taking the full brunt should such upheaval occur. From the post; This brings us to a post from USA Today that asks Time For A No Bond Portfolio? The article itself is not so hot but I believe the title asks a pretty good question. A better way to frame it might be is it time to rethink bond exposure not in terms of owning more equities but in terms of finding legitimate substitutes that offer closer to normal bond market returns, with similar volatility profiles but without…

    My latest for Alpha Baskets is posted at looks at the saver/investor who is under-saved. As opposed to the many people who reportedly have nothing saved I think there are likely many people who have accumulated something of a nest egg but maybe not enough for the retirement they had in mind. From the post; Someone who engages in markets enough to read blogs like this might be doing a little better than average but what does the person/couple who is 60 and has $200,000 or $250,000 in their 401k do? That is probably not a ruinous situation but $8000-$10,000 (assumes the 4% rule) on top of…

  • Postpetition Wages Held by Chapter 13 Trustee Belong to Debtor Upon Conversion

    Pamela Foohey
    18 May 2015 | 12:08 pm
    In case you haven't seen it, the SCOTUS issued its unanimous opinion in Harris today, holding that postpetition wages held by the Chapter 13 trustee at the time a case is converted to Chapter 7 must be returned to the debtor. When the Fifth Circuit issued its decision that created the split with the Third Circuit, I blogged some thoughts, primarily focusing on statutory analysis. Now that the SCOTUS has weighed in, the practical question is: how can creditors protect themselves from the risk that the trustee will accumulate a large sum of postpetition wages? Today's opinion ends…

    Jason Kilborn
    12 May 2015 | 1:53 pm
    The Illinois Supreme Court issued its unanimous opinion this past Friday putting a stake through the heart of the legislature's latest attempt to evade its responsibility for woefully underfunding four of the state's five public pensions. Adam (among others) has discussed the pension issue in the Detroit bankruptcy case and the Michigan constitutional provision protecting pension benefits from impairment. The Illinois Constitution of 1970 has an identical provision (art. XIII, s. 5), which will have much more bite in the case of the state of Illinois--an entity that, unlike Detroit,…

    11 May 2015 | 11:06 am
    My thoughts on whether the Bankruptcy Code should be amended to allow easier discharge of student loan debt are upon The Examiners at the Wall St. Journal. Short of it is yes for private student loans, no for public student loans. I'm sure to catch hell for this from some of the more aggressive student loan forgiveness advocates, given that most of the market is public student loans, but there are other restructuring and foregiveness options available for public loans and serious fairness problems with allowing discharge of existing student loans.  New borrowers shouldn't have to…

    Another quiet session in a week full of them. The S&P 500 gained 0.23% and the NASDAQ 0.38% as morning weakness was bought. This is a good sign again, but these gains are of a grinding nature. Existing home sales for April fell 3.3%, missing an expected 1% gain to 5.24 million units.

For the year the S&P 500 is 3.4% higher and the NASDAQ is up 7.2% - but it has not been easy sledding in 2015. Fed Bank of Chicago President Charles Evans repeated his call to hold interest...

    On the TV show “Shark Tank,” business owners typically ask for funding in exchange for equity. When a product catches the eye of Kevin “Mr. Wonderful” O’Leary, he likes to counter with a complicated deal consisting of royalties and fees. Sometimes royalty in perpetuity comes attached to the offer. Smarter entrepreneurs turn him down flat because it takes away money they could reinvest in the business. To explain O’Leary’s type of deal, take a look at the deal he made with Wicked Good Cupcakes. They sold cupcakes in a jar for $7.50 each. O’Leary offered them a deal in which…

Recently, I emailed my bank contact to request a debit card who sent a friendly reply. After a little back and forth, she said she knew of me. How? I lived an hour away from the bank, so all my transactions were online or by mail. It turned out that Theresa knew my mom.

    Tamela Rich

    Yellowstone National Park is an American icon. It’s what comes to mind when you think about a national park. With summer vacation planning in full swing, I’m begging you not to shortchange yourself when you visit. Three days is the minimum stay, but spend five if at all possible. Matt and I explored the park for five days and could spend another five on our next visit! Bison are the symbol of Yellowstone—and they are everywhere—but until you visit the park and its excellent interpretive centers (discussed below) you may not realize that Yellowstone sits atop one of the…

  • Why Oil’s Rally Is Over

    Martin Tillier
    21 May 2015 | 2:41 pm
    A lot of people have got very excited as the price of WTI has bounced back from the lows reached a few months ago. If oil fails to break and hold above $62 this time around, however, their enthusiasm could well be misplaced, as the fundamental factors that caused the price decline in the first instance are still in place. That, combined with the technical importance of this challenge of the resistance, makes a drop back below $50 look more likely than a continued rally. When short-term technical indicators and long-term fundamentals both suggest…
  • Drilling Efficiency To Keep Oil Prices Low

    Michael McDonald
    21 May 2015 | 2:25 pm
    Economics 101 tells us that prices in a free market are set by the interaction of supply and demand. The world oil markets have gotten a graphic lesson in that truth over the last year, as the dramatic surge in US oil production has met stagnant demand. This, in turn, has pushed down spot prices by nearly half. The recent uptick in oil prices, however, has buoyed hopes among market watchers that a strong oil price rally is in order. Unfortunately economics is working against these investors. Related: $50 Billion Mega Project Could Change South…
  • This LNG Player Could Leave Lumbering Competitors In The Dust

    US companies have been scrambling over the past few years to build new export terminals for liquefied natural gas (LNG). But just as the first is nearing completion, one company wants to forgo the onshore liquefaction concept altogether and move offshore. The US is nearing the point when it will start exporting natural gas, which Bloomberg says will “change the global LNG market forever.” US LNG could undermine the practice – particularly in Asia – where supply deals are sealed with long-term contracts linked to the price…

    If you have a poor credit score, be that because of human records or because of payment difficulties, you will quickly find that it is hard to be accepted for loans. However, there are also subprime lending companies out there that may be able to help you. Auto title loans, for instance, can help you cover real emergency situations. Understanding Bad Credit One of the reasons that your credit may be low is if you have defaulted on payments. This will also mean that you will be excluded from low interest loans. The problem is, however, that if you can’t access money, you also can’t pay the…

For the most part, it’s a good thing, but there are plenty of opportunities for things to get out of hand. And, when they do, it usually results in bad credit.

    As a tour guide I discovered that the tips I got were often tied to how happy the people were at the end of the tour and that had a lot to do with how they were treated on their cruise ship. I live in an area that gets hundreds of thousands of cruise ship passengers every summer in Alaska.

    By Chris Ebert With the S&P 500 closing near its all-time record once again, now is a great time to evaluate whether the stock market has reached a top, or whether it is about to rocket much, much higher. It would be terrific if there was an easy answer, but there is not. There never is. That is what makes tops so dangerous – dangerous to buy because the bottom could fall out – dangerous to short because the top could blow off. Perhaps the most important question a trader can ask right now is: ” Whether the S&P rallies explosively, or whether it crashes in coming…

    By Chris Ebert The S&P 500 closed at an all-time high of 2123 this past week. The Dow closed within a few points of its all-time high, as did the Nasdaq. Each of those events taken out of context can seem to paint a rosy picture of the stock market; it’s difficult to argue with the market when stock prices are climbing higher than they have ever been before. However, put into the proper context the picture becomes one of gloom, and perhaps of impending doom. There is and always has been an abundance of doom and gloom when stocks reach new highs. It’s simply the nature of the…

  • UK Immigration Crisis Could Prompt BREXIT, Propelling Britain Out of EU Despite German Factor

    21 May 2015 | 9:18 pm
    The latest immigration statistics once more bring home the stark reality that the UK has no control over its borders, where rather than annual net immigration in the tens of thousands as David Cameron promised at the start of his 2010 Premiership, instead it has once more soared by 50\% to 318,000 for 2014, which makes a mockery of every promise and pledge that the Conservatives have made for the past 5 years of not just controlling immigration but on public services and housing, for none of the

    Rising declination trend for firms that cooperate with investigations and staff turnover among the reasons for DoJ holding back FCPA enforcement by the Department of Justice has gotten off to a slow start in 2015. As of May 18, the DoJ had not resolved an FCPA investigation with an enforcement action, even while the SEC had brought administrative actions against FLIR Systems and Goodyear Tire & Rubber Company and entered a deferred prosecution agreement with PBSJ Corp during the same time frame. Against this relative paucity of actions, as of April 17, law firm Miller Chevalier had…

And while it seems like it should be a straightforward exercise — Party A has a home to sell, Party B wants to buy it — as anyone who has ever been involved in the sale or purchase of real estate can attest, the process of transferring ownership of real estate is actually far more complex.

More people feel confident looking for a job in the past, and fewer people are worried about being laid off. In fact, about 30 percent of workers are so optimistic about their job prospects that they would be willing to leave their current positions if they do not receive a raise this year. Even just a few years ago, automatic annual raises, even just cost of living increases, were the norm. Unfortunately, however, one of the byproducts…

Thank you. –Alison Dear Alison, You may have heard that it is better to keep older accounts active. In a way, that's true.

  • 3 methods for paying off debt

    11 May 2015 | 7:57 am
    Debt can be overwhelming, especially when you have multiple debts and you're not sure where to start. A system to prioritize your debts takes some of the guesswork out of your repayment plan. There are three main ways to pay down your debt: the snowball method, the avalanche method, and the level payment method. All have their advantages, and one will likely work for you. Before you jump into paying off any debt, you need to establish ground rules for yourself: “Stop adding to your debt,” says Mitch Korolewicz, an accredited financial counselor with OK Money Coach. As long as you…

  • Today's Trading Plan: Needs New Highs Here

    22 May 2015 | 12:10 am
    Technical Outlook: SPY yesterday managed to engulf the previous day's candle body.  SPX managed again to show strength and a willingness to buy when the 5-day moving average was tested.  Volume on SPY is dramatically weakening this week due the holiday weekend ahead, and I suspect it will be even worse today.  Watch 2107 - the trend-line off of the February lows of SPX. If that price level breaks, so does the rising support level.  Massive drop in VIX yesterday which exhibited a massive breakdown below the key support level that was rising off of the July lows. Dropped 6%…

  • Denial is NOT a River in Africa

    21 May 2015 | 7:11 am
    I've been reading a lot of talk this morning about how there is no real chance that SPX will make any kind of high in the easily foreseeable future and that's natural. This wave up from October 2011 has been so long and so powerful that it has left many with the strong impression that TA is valueless and that the only possible road to success is buying the dip and holding on at all costs. An extended wave 3 up will breed bullish complacency. In all honesty that may well be the case for another two or three years, depending on the individual trader's tolerance for pain, and over a timescale of…

    Technical Outlook: Fairly quiet session of trading yesterday until the FOMC minutes came out which created a stir as well as a false break higher that was quickly sold.  Oil has shown far greater volatility in the past few days then what we had previously seen over the past two months.  5-day moving average for SPX continues to remain strong for price action and SPX has shown a willingness to bounce off of it on the retests.  SPX 30 minute chart has consolidated over the past two days.  VIX continues to hug the July '14 support/trend line, as VIX only rose 0.2% to…

    Your spouse can make or break you financially. That’s no surprise, given how money is one of the leading causes of divorce. But there is much more to the relationship and money question than just divorce or marital bliss. Unless you plan on being single forever, this is an issue that should concern you. It’s important to know how to talk about money with your spouse, and it’s equally important to be on the same financial page.

    Everyone wants to know how to get rich, but few ever get there. The answer is surprisingly simple, but most people seem to have a passion for making things needlessly complicated. The first step to achieving financial success is you need a rock solid financial foundation. Otherwise, you could have all the money in the world, but no clue on how you should manage it. A poor financial foundation will cause you to get lost in debt, going through the motions in life without a clear goal, or ignorant as to how you can effectively use every dollar passing through your hands as a tool to build…

    David Bettencourt
    21 May 2015 | 8:04 pm
    Did you know that if you took every single penny away from everyone in the United States that it still would not be enough to pay off the national debt?  Today, the debt of the federal government exceeds $145,000 per household, and it is getting worse with each passing year. Many believe that if we paid it off a little bit at a time that we could eventually pay it all off, but as you will see below that isn’t going to work either. It has been projected that “mandatory” federal spending on programs such as Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare plus interest on the national debt will…

    VXST options looked like a great product on paper - cheap, short term options, massive mean-reversion, huge gamma -  however trading just did not take off. Now CBOE is trying different angle - similar to regular weeklys, the exchange is launching weekly VIX futures, and weekly VIX options. To clarify - these are not weekly options on VXST, they are not weekly futures options (like CBOE proposed some while ago). These are options on the VIX index, just with more frequent expirations.Officail product page. Hat tip to Nakul Nayyar.

  • Recession in Late 2015 a Strong Possibility as U.S. Economy Slows at Alarming Pace

    Michael Lombardi, MBA
    22 May 2015 | 5:26 am
    Is the U.S. economy getting close to a recession? Rising business inventory and slowing consumption say yes. In these pages, I have argued over and over again that consumption data are important; they’re the biggest part of the U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) calculation. And, currently, consumption in the U.S. economy is stalling at an alarming pace. I look at consumer consumption to see how businesses are reacting, and how their sales and inventories level are looking. If sales decline and inventories rise, it’s a problem in any economy.

  • Interest Rate Hikes May Cause Another Recession

    Milad Marvasti
    21 May 2015 | 9:00 am
    Low interest rates create an incentive for retail investors, hedge fund managers, and banks to consider riskier assets that offer higher returns. Cheap money also makes it easy to borrow when the return exceeds the cost of borrowing. When short-term interest rates are low and unstable, investors are hesitant to borrow more and leverage their position. But when interest rates are stable, investors are more willing to assume the risk of borrowing to invest in long-term and high-yield securities. Please look at the chart below.

    Ultra Bears missed out on the biggest string of gains in the history of the oil market, or at least since 1983 when they  began keeping records. The reason they missed out was failing to understand the gravity that the last November oil price crash had on the fundamentals of this market. That price crash led to a series events that have set the stage for the next oil price rally.  Rig count cuts have fallen a record 23 weeks in a row and the historic drop in oil capital spending will have effects on the future prospects for global oil production.

    Financial institutions have made progress in addressing risk management but still have a lot of work to do, especially in creating a culture that encourages employees to take appropriate risks and that promotes ethical behavior more broadly, according to Edward Hida, global risk and capital management leader at Deloitte. “One of the more recent areas of focus of regulators in the last year or two has been on culture, ethics, conduct risk, ethical standards,” Hida told Markets Media. “That's involves the qualitative side of risk management. How you link those into more programmatic…

    With banks paying out multi-billion-dollar fines, the regulatory focus on the spot foreign exchange market is expected to to widen to other FX markets. “We know that the attention right now is squarely on the spot market,” Stephen Anikewich, head of buy side/sell side compliance at Nice Actimize, told Markets Media. “However, the spot market is one slice of the pie. It's a big slice obviously, but it’s still only one-third of the risk pie.” Any activities in the spot market which appears to be price manipulation might have a nexus to the trading activities and risk exposure in the…

    Paul Squires, head of trading at Axa Investment Managers, said the proposed changes on paying for research in Europe will have a significant effect on the fund manager's business.

    One in five adults admits to being a chronic procrastinator. Among college students, the number may be as high as seven in 10, which might explain those all-nighters.1 In the “real world,” you can’t always cram for finals. Procrastination can have far-reaching effects on important activities and decisions, such as completing tasks at work, obtaining medical treatment, and saving for retirement.

    Guarding Against Fraud In a survey of American adults aged 40 and older, 84% revealed that they had been solicited to participate in a potentially fraudulent offer, and 11% had lost money after engaging in such an offer.1 The root of this problem — besides the endless efforts of criminals — seems to be naiveté and unwarranted trust on the part of those who are deceived. A large percentage of respondents were unable to spot fraudulent sales pitches and found the unrealistic promises appealing (see chart). Although people of any age can be victims of fraud, criminals are more likely to…

In a survey of Americans aged 45 and older, 57% described retirement as a new chapter in life, seeing it as an opportunity to explore new options and pursue their dreams. Many pre-retirees don’t envision a traditional retirement at all, but want to reinvent their careers by entering a new field of work.1

    Anyone can save for retirement, not just those who have access to a 401(k) plan at work. An individual retirement arrangement, or IRA account, is a good way to build up a fund and get tax advantages at the same time. If you’re self-employed or otherwise don’t have a 401(k) option, an IRA can serve you well. How IRAs work There are two main types of IRAs — traditional and Roth IRAs — and they work a little differently. Although both rely on personal contributions and can be opened at banks and most brokerages, the tax treatment for each differs. Traditional IRA: Like a 401(k),…

    19 May 2015 | 10:58 am

So getting professional help can make a BIG difference… Ready to find the right collection agency? Save time, money and aggravation by hiring a professional who can help you collect some (or all?) of your outstanding revenue.

  • Deducting Financial Planning And Retainer Fees, And The (Tax) Problem With Bundled AUM Fees

    Michael Kitces
    20 May 2015 | 4:01 am

With the rise of wealth management, though, it is increasingly common for consumers to pay a single “bundled” AUM fee, that covers not only (deductible) investment management services, but also (non-deductible) financial…

    In the world of investment advisors, competition has long been driven at least in part by investment performance results. Yet the challenge is that performance reporting can also be prone to abuse, due to the lack of consistent standards - amongst individual financial advisors in particular - about how those results are measured and reported in the first place.

    I recently attended a founder's talk at a SOMA tech startup.  Confidentiality agreements prevent me from revealing its identity.  Suffice it to say that the '90s dot-com era is back with a vengeance.  All of the trappings of excess capital were on display:  custom bike racks, stacks of board games, and even a Foosball table.  The one contemporary update was the constant flow of gourmet food.  All of these things will be gone in short order.Venture-backed startups can afford expensive nonsense like in-house dietitians and custom menus in gourmet food courts.

    If you had to choose between the two – CFA or FRM, which one will you take? Maybe CFA, maybe FRM or both? This is one of the most freqently asked questions when students make up their mind to advance their careers in Finance. Making the right choice is important because each of the examination takes lot of hard work, money and ofcourse lot of time. The choice, however, is sometimes difficult for those who are not aware of its key differences. I was fortunate to pass both the CFA and FRM exams and was lucky to go through the course details, benefits and nuances of both the examinations.

  • Employment Numbers Surprise Almost No One; Alter No Fed Expectations, But…

    Jack Rivkin
    13 May 2015 | 12:47 pm
    Are we entering a longer growth, but lower return environment? The Numbers April employment numbers of 223,000 jobs added dropped the unemployment rate to 5.4%. March numbers were revised lower to 85,000 jobs vs. the 126,000 previously reported. Wages rose quite modestly month-over-month. This report provided a sigh of relief for the bulls on both the stock and the bond markets, reinforcing a view that the Federal Reserve will be in no hurry to raise rates. But, there are some nuances to the report, which we will discuss in the geek session below, that continue to suggest that the labor…

  • Employment Numbers Surprise Most and Change Fed Expectations (Again)

    Jack Rivkin
    7 Apr 2015 | 9:19 am
    In contrast to February, March employment numbers surprised on the downside, with adjustments to January and February reducing employment for the first three months to a seasonally adjusted average rate of 197,000, down from 220,000 previously. As we said last month, we would have expected some payback as the true impact of the weather, the port strike, and what was happening in the oil patch worked its way into the revised numbers and the month of March. Still, this was a surprising number on the low side. On the wage front, however, hourly earnings were up 0.3%. This is a little suspect…

    Don’t expect equity-like returns in traditional fixed income. I am just about to put out an update on our “What to Expect in 2015…” piece on Altegris Perspectives. However with a surprisingly good jobs report out this past Friday it is worth a specific comment on the report for those who care. The conclusion from the employment numbers lends some support to an increase in Fed Funds rate at mid-year. The early reaction of the US yield curve – a 10bps upward movement in 2-year interest rates – indicates that market expectations are moving in that direction as well. I think…

In the absence of the traditional bank lender willing to take normal risks, factors and non-bank ABL lenders emerged as the dominant vehicle for lending throughout this tumultuous period of American small business. These lenders, the factoring companies of America, should be applauded for adding financial stability to the business market. Looking back, their efforts did not go unrewarded.

    The Federal Reserve is keeping all options on the table, with an interest rate hike in June still likely according to influential central bank officials. While weak US data and decreasing investor confidence may make an increase seem unlikely, recent statements and minutes from the Fed’s March policy meeting highlight an increased eagerness for tightening after more than six years of near-zero rates. The possibility of a June rate rise has been somewhat quashed in recent weeks, with decreased job growth, slow retail sales, and disappointing manufacturing activity pushing market…

The currency is now trading at around 1.324 to the US Dollar – similar to where it was at the beginning of this year. Weak economic numbers from the United States, along with the lack of change in the policy rate from the Monetary Authority of Singapore – against analyst expectations – have helped support the Singapore Dollar and its recent turnaround.

    GOLD 1212 Wide Range Market – breakout on the edge On the short term view ; the market is ranging widely between major levels of 1170s and 1228s ; the breakout of one of these levels would push further the market on the direction of that breakout which would be the new mid-term trend . Moreover, the market buying pressure still exists and accelerates which means more upside move is expected to the levels of 1250 /1270 respectively on the short-term view. Any decline below 1205 ( Pivotal area) would return the selling pressure and more downward move would be generated to the levels of…

    Having just seen that banking fines have reached $235bio, my mind turned to the power that regulators have to apply almost randomly large fines over an industry where the fines themselves rarely make it to compensate the aggrieved parties. The regulating machine is beginning to remind me of HAL in 2001 a Space Odysey. So with that in mind here are some famous lines from the film but between Dave and Frank Banker and the regulator.Dave Banker, My fine is how much???Regulator: Look Dave, I can see you're really upset about this.

The 20mins you will be able to save via a new £22bio UK high speed train. The time it takes to get to and from a city centre train station with all your luggage.

The small addition of one letter is linguistically huge as is asking a simple question of the value of Sovereign Wealth Funds (SWFs), as the implications for the global economy are equally as profound.Many financial market participants and policymakers alike (not to mention, of course, the SWF’s themselves) would consider this question to be nonsensical as their conclusion is beyond doubt; SWFs are overwhelming viewed as a positive.

    I too looked at that bund chart and thought 'typical spike exhaustion sell off'. The rebound amidst a mood of 'get me the hell out of here’ makes a perfect CTA market bottom. CTA weighting has been a large component of this turndown in Bunds. If they were the only players in town then the next move should be higher especially when we have the oil tanker of the ECB bid still around. You could argue the ECB is grateful having profit transfered from the CTA bin to ECB bin via the better transfer price. But there are a couple of other background issues. First is that many feel that bunds…

    EUR/USD consolidated around the middle of the 1.11 range overnight. This morning’s release of German GDP figures helped the bulls push modestly higher though they struggled to maintain momentum. The non-seasonally adjusted GDP figures showed Germany grew ahead of expectations at an annual pace of 1.1% in the first quarter. Economist had penciled in a rise of 1% on the year. However, poor manufacturing data from Germany proved to be a drag on the single currency. The latest survey of purchasing managers showed a marked deterioration in activity in May.

    EUR/NZD pushed briefly above its 200 day Moving Average to make a new recent high at the 1.5401 level early this week. This near term rally resulted after the cross broke the upper resistance line of a falling wedge pattern shown in blue on the daily and weekly candlestick charts appearing to the right and left below respectively. After touching that 1.5401 peak, the cross then relaxed back below the level of its 200-day Moving Average — shown in red on the daily chart to the right — and traded down to the 1.5038 level this morning.

  • Is Russia’s Economy Rebounding?

    Shashank Pattekar
    20 May 2015 | 11:50 pm
    On May 15th, it was reported by the Federal Statistics Service that Russia’s GDP in the first quarter of 2015 had fallen by 1.9% from a year earlier. This follows year-on-year figures of a modest 0.4% GDP gain in last year’s final quarter and, prior to that, a 0.9% rise in Q3. Normally when an industrialised economy publishes such figures, one might conclude that recent times have been disastrous. However, Russia’s Q1 performance is a clear improvement on the predictions of many analysts. There is no disputing the fact that a 1.9% contraction in national output is of grave concern. The…

Of the two perhaps deflation is, if we rule out exaggerated inflations such as that of Germany, the worse; because it is worse, in an impoverished world, to provoke unemployment than to disappoint the rentier.

Well – not quite. Having gone through the widespread and cross-organisational SEPA changes last year, we’re now in a business as usual environment. In this instance, you may not even know that a SEPA implementation is going in within your company…

  • Rule 15

    14 May 2015 | 1:10 pm
    Wishful thinking must be banished  Hoping and wishing that a specific stock will increase in value does not influence the market price of a stock.  It does cause grief, anxiety, and depression for the person doing the wishful thinking.
  • Rule number 14

    14 Apr 2015 | 10:04 am
    It is not well to be too curious about all the reasons behind price movements  Price movements, either positive or negative, may be caused by forces not known to the general public.  If the price movement is positive, one may increase his or her position in the stock.  If the price movement is negative, one needs to sell the stock.
  • Rule #13

    7 Apr 2015 | 1:18 pm
    The human side of every person is the greatest enemy of the average investor or speculator.  Successful investors replace human emotions with logical analysis.  The key to investing success is research, research, and more research.  This is how true investment winners are discovered.  Logical analysis prevails over human emotion.
  • Rule number 12

    6 Apr 2015 | 10:50 am
    Never average losses  Averaging losses is when an investor buys a stock at a certain price, such as $50 a share. When the stock drops to $40 a share, the investor buys more of the same stock. The investor believes he or she is getting a “deal” on the lower-priced stock.  The hope is that the stock with rise again.  Averaging losses is a surefire way to lose money. The stock most likely will continue to drop and the investor is now losing even more money than before. Although it appears to lower the average cost per share, it is really throwing good money after…
  • Rule number 11

    2 Apr 2015 | 10:47 am
    I become a buyer as soon as a stock makes a new high on its movement after having had a normal reaction  Once a stock reaches a “New High”, it is a positive sign that new buyers are entering the market for the stock. Sometimes, there is a slight reduction in the market price after making a new high. See Figure 3, New High and New Low.  This is a normal reaction as some investors are taking profits.  New highs often increase in value to create additional new highs.

    22 May 2015 | 5:58 am
    Google (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:GOOGL) shares might just have to double in order to cross $1,000 and this can’t happen overnight. It might just take about, 5 years maybe? With a constant P/E multiple, a doubled share price in five years needs a doubled EPS as well that has a 14.9% annualized growth rate. Through Thomson Financial Network data, analysts think that the company’s EPS will grow at a 14.6% annualized rate in the coming five years. However, a lot can happen in just five years and nothing can be said for sure. However, consider the assumption that the P/E ratio at the moment must…
