Is it Time To Ignore the Fed? August 22, 2014.
Investors, who railed against the ineptness of Fed and the rest of
government in the 2008 meltdown, have come to trust the Fed to know what it is
doing. And it has not let them down, with its timely increases in QE. But now
it has begun a reversal of monetary policy. Its history on those is dismal.
Bonds Persist in Their Warning About the U.S. Economy. August 15, 2014.
Bonds usually rally when expecting an economic slowdown. They began rallying
in early January, and in April we learned the economy plunged to negative
growth in the first quarter. The economy has supposedly recovered, according
to Wall Street and the Fed. But bonds continue to rally.
European Markets Look Downright Scary. August 8, 2014.
The U.S. and European markets have tracked with each other for years, and
are still doing so, both in pullbacks. But the European decline has been
much more significant and long-term supports have been broken.
China's Market Finally Looks Like a Buy. July 25, 2014.
China's market has been in a 5-year long bear market on concerns its economy
was headed for a hard landing. There is evidence the reform and stimulus
efforts of China's government is having a positive effect in stabilizing the
situation. Meanwhile, the IMF forecasts China's 2014 economic growth will
slow to 7.4%, while it is forecasting U.S. growth to slow to 1.7%.
Will Investors Get Out On Time This Time? July 18, 2014.
Public investors have a terrible record of repeatedly coming into bull
markets several years after they begin, and then not exiting until after
the next bear market has ended. The problem seems to be having no strategy
at all, for getting out - or back in.
Are Some Proven Investment Strategies Too Simple To Accept? May 23, 2014.
An interesting look at Jeremy Grantham's letter to clients of his $117
billion international money management firm for institutions and wealthy
investors. He notes decades of his firm's studies confirming the remarkable
performance of several investment strategies, and how investors blow them
off because they seem too simple to be effective.
