Weekly Economic Data.. 28th Oct..

by on
An excellent report from WF this week.. the data in the US is mixed but the latest GDP forecasts improved.. (GDP always rises in a positive inflation environment as governments understate inflation and therefore over state GDP growth. The oldest trick in the book of course). Wonderfully WF picks up on the ‘financial repression’ strategy....

by on
Further to the post from a month ago.. http://www.capitalsynthesis.com/international-equities-the-only-show-in-town/ Today was not about the European news flow.

Weekly Technical Comments.. Buy The Dips..

by on
The UBS team retain their bullishness with the recent ‘melt up’ being consistent with a short squeeze and therefore highly likely that a retrace comes now given the short covering that has occurred as the levels got blown over. This fits with the bearish sentiment in the market we saw before the melt. I also...

‘Euro Farse’ Sat Update – “It was Grim. The worst mood I have ever seen. A complete mess”. The Final Act Moves to Wednesday

by on
There is no way i can do justice to the issues around the euro at present. To do so would require a small book by way of monetary explanation and discussion. The issues are certainly deep and complex and their resolution or not is even more complex given the twists and turns by the eurocrasts...

We are continuing to see a softening of the data rather than falling off a cliff data coming through.
