Stocks - The Real Monster is Here

As economic data has shown deterioration, the fear of the causal catalyst for economic demise - abrupt oil price decline, has given way to tangible economic concern. Investors are well advised to watch the economic data more closely than energy prices for their cue. Recession is the real life threat we need to fear, and so economic data will take the lead and drive both stocks and oil prices from here. See the full report on Stocks - The Monster in the Closet.

Why this Oil Price Surge is Serious

blogger
Oil prices had reason to collapse Wednesday morning after data showed a massive build in crude oil inventory. Yet, more commentary from OPEC members and Russia about a potential emergency meeting managed to offset the impact. But it was more than just that Wednesday, as severe dollar depreciation served commodities as well. Because a variety of important factors are behind this latest oil price rise, it is stalwart. Whether it stays that way depends on U.S. economic developments, Fed speak, the value of the dollar, OPEC production and U.S. oil production. See Why this Oil Price Surge is Stalwart.

On Groundhog Day Stocks & Oil Relive their Misery

stocks and oil comparison chart


It’s Groundhog Day, so I suppose it’s appropriate for us to revisit old trends, ala Bill Murray’s reliving of the same day in the famed film of the same name. It seems like I might have had foreknowledge of the future, given the perspective I shared Friday predicting imminent oil price decline. It is panning out in a big way, as oil prices have reversed their recent bounce and are now testing OPEC’s put as I suggested. Stocks had broken out of their tie with oil, but seem today to be reunited in misery with their old master. See Groundhog Day - Stocks & Oil Reunited in Misery.

Goldilocks' Twisted Sister Leads Stocks Astray

S&P500-Breakout
10-Day Chart of SPY at Fidelity.com
Last week we were reminded how important the market’s expectations for the Federal Reserve are. As data made a case for a Fed pause in rate hikes, investors overlooked the fact that the economy seems to be softening. It’s something I think can continue for as long as the Fed sounds hesitant and the economy doesn’t break. Today’s data further supported this thesis and stocks gained some more. Still, this is not a Goldilocks sort of situation, as the best case scenario for investors would include robust economic growth that justifies Fed policy normalization. What we have instead is sort of like Goldilocks’ evil twin, and a hope that bad enough but not recessionary economic data keeps the Fed at bay. See the full report on Goldilocks Twisted Twin Leading Stocks Higher.
