Hey Folks, in a strange twist the markets are showing signs of extreme caution due to the combined dynamic of Strong Growth vs Higher Interest Rates! At the end of the week, the DOW and the S&P saw a drop of over 5.2% with NASDAQ close falling 5.1%…we have now seen the record 404 trading days without a 5% drop broken. Wide daily fluctuations this past week also set records with the DOW moving over a 1,000 point range several days. Where will we go from here? Get my take on this week’s Market Round-Up

Hey Folks, if you are a member of our group then this market’s reaction to higher interest rates should not be a surprise to you…we are seeing markets go thru a “re-allocation” model where big money is beginning to account for higher interest rates. This forces most big fixed income funds and other larger mutual funds to move money from both Debt and Equity products as rates rise. Once we get into a more realistic revaluation mix then we will see the markets settle down a bit. In the past, we’ve typically seen the Equity markets fall from 4% to over 7% when we get this re-allocation mix. But, our User Group is still in a “buy the dip” mode! Get more details on my take here in this week’s update.

So there’s a bull market in gambling, speculating, recreational drugs, and technologies that are designed to circumvent banks and regulators. These are captivating times folks. Earlier on Friday we saw the U.S. GDP come in at an 2.6% annual pace in fourth quarter, extending one of the best stretches of growth during the current eight-and-a-half-year-old upturn. And although the top line number was less than expectations the underlying data suggests a very strong market. We saw Consumer spending, the main engine of the economy, rise a strong 3.8%, the biggest increase in almost two years. Get my take on where we are and where we could be going in these markets.
