Oil rose almost 5% as the U.S. dollar fell markedly on worse than expected economic data that sent treasuries higher, but bonds then fell back off into the close as the Dow, Nasdaq, and S&P rose on optimism about a ceasefire between Russian separatists and Ukrainian forces.
Among the big names making news in the market today were TripAdvisor, Expedia, Tesla, GM, and Time.
“While much of the western world bankers keep pushing on a string, economic slowdown becomes more widespread. Here in the U.S., the “Don’t Worry, Be Happy” crowd on Wall Street continues to speak about economic expansion when the only thing expanding is their avoidance of economic reality.
U.S. Stock Market – I continue to believe major swings up and down almost daily, is a signal the great bull-run is coming to an end. All sorts of fundamental and technical analogies say so. It may be a few weeks or even a few months before the ultimate top, but leaving the punch bowl now and hailing a cab is as good as time as any.
U.S. Bonds – Continue to avoid High-Yield (Junk) bonds like the plague. Treasuries may be the lesser of two evils versus equities, but ownership of neither is better IMHO than heavy ownership of both.
U.S. Dollar – While more players appear ahead in the race to debase their currencies, the appearance of victory for Uncle Sam shall in fact be dearly paid for down the road.
Gold - $1,300 has proven indeed to be key resistance. The gold cartel (whose headquarters is the Comex) have been all over the short side the last couple of weeks. I’m not going to debate their existence; as anyone who watches daily trading sees the sudden, unexplained sudden falls and knows it’s no accident or coincidence.
But whether manipulated or not, the fact is, much of the technical gains made from the start of the New Year have been damaged (and if history is any indication, it shall be a process to overcome them and get back to challenging $1,300).” - Peter Grandich, http://moneytalks.net/peters-content.html
