is More to the Economic Slowdown Than Just Weather. April 17, 2014.
Hopes are currently the main prop under the market, particularly hope that
although the winter's economic reports were seasonally adjusted, that the
weather was so harsh that it had an unusual impact that accounted for the economy's problems. It's widely expected, or at least hoped, that economic
reports for March and April will show a significant bounce-back that will
confirm that assessment. So far, the picture is not all that reassuring.
is Too Dependent on Hopes That Await Evidence. April 11, 2014. The market remained
positive, near its December peak for three months primarily based on hopes.
At this point it needs more than hopes. Meanwhile, too much talk of bubbles
and crashes, both of which are extremely rare. A slower more normal bear
market is more likely. in market's unfavorable season.
However, the facts are that if a fund manager is doing his job, he or she
probably cannot do much to protect the fund against bear market losses. That
is because fund managers are very limited in how far
they can go in re-allocating assets even when they determine the market is
at high risk of a substantial downturn.
Safe Havens Are Trouncing Stocks So Far This Year. March 7, 2014.
Investors are reported to be still pulling money out of bonds and
pouring it into stocks and stock mutual funds this year. But someone
must be taking the other side, buying bonds and selling stocks, to an
even greater extent. Because in spite of what investors are reported to
be doing, stocks are going nowhere, while the safe havens of bonds, and
particularly gold, are up for the year so far.
