Energy, mining and metals companies fell. Caterpillar, Exxon Mobil and Chevron had the biggest losses in the Dow Jones Industrial average. The Dow and the Standard & Poor’s 500-stock index are now negative for the year.   The Energy Information Administration just released its latest weekly look at the US oil market, and it shows that US crude stockpiles are just 3 million barrels off the record 490 million barrel record in April.  Crude stockpiles grew by 4.2 million barrels last week. A private report released Wednesday had shown an even larger increase. The biggest factors have been a slowdown in demand, and China’s slowdown is a big part of that equation. Meanwhile, oil producers just keep pumping; US shale production has slowed and will likely slow more, even though it remains stubbornly high; OPEC refuses to cut production and the more oil prices fall, the faster they pump.   Prices for copper and other commodities were slumping as investors anticipated that the dollar would become even stronger.

Back then it was called Armistice Day. Today we call it Veterans Day. And for all the veterans – Thank you.   The 11th day of November is celebrated in China as Singles Day, symbolized by the four lonely 1s of 11/11. Apparently, this is kind of the anti-Valentine’s Day.

It was by far the largest one-day percentage drop in US stock market history.   China’s economy grew 6.9% in the third quarter from a year ago, beating forecasts for 6.8% growth. The results add to doubts the country can meet its year-end GDP target of about 7%, and raises pressure on Beijing to roll out more stimulus measures following a summer stock market plunge and devaluation of the yuan. Most China analysts also feel the GDP number is fictional, probably more like 3% than 6.9%, but it’s still the slowest growth since 2009.  China has been cutting its holdings of US Treasuries for the first time since 2001, but so far demand remains strong from other foreign investors and American investors.   Last month, Chinese President Xi Jingping visited Washington and an agreement was announced that China and the US would refrain from cyberattacks by each country on the other or on companies domiciled in the respective countries. Yeah, not so much. …

The S&P/Case Shiller composite index of 20 metropolitan areas in July gained 5 percent year over year. San Francisco, Denver and Dallas experienced the highest year-over-year home appreciation among the 20 cities with price increases of 10.4 percent, 10.3 percent and 8.7 percent, respectively. The worst performing cities on the list include Detroit, and the only surprise is that Chicago was even worse than Detroit. The Sunbelt cities – Miami, Tampa, Phoenix and Las Vegas – which were the poster children of the housing boom have yet to make new all-time highs. Phoenix home prices were up 0.7% in July, and up 4.6% year over year.   The Conference Board said its index of consumer attitudes rose to 103.0, the highest since January, from a downwardly revised 101.3 the month before. The present situation index, a measure of current conditions, also climbed to an eight-year high of 121.1 from 115.8.

Greeks voted to pay off all of their debt; they put the money in a big wooden horse. They left the horse on the doorstep of the European Central Bank in Brussels. Problem solved. Actually, Greeks voted ‘No’ in a referendum asking them to accept an international creditor proposal that would have included more austerity reforms. The final tally showed 61% voted “no”; so it was a bit of a landslide. Both the Greek people and their government want to remain within the euro, and it isn’t clear that there is a legal mechanism to kick Greece out of the Eurozone, at least not any time soon.  Of course a Greek exit might not be so bad. If you are an unemployed Greek worker, it really doesn’t matter if you are not being paid in euros or drachmas. Actually, the idea of printing their own currency, even if it is greatly devalued, is probably easier to swallow than the boot to the throat that is austerity. The question is whether the Greeks must leave the euro to have …

The Fed also said it has seen inflation decline, and it may decline further, but that low oil prices are probably temporary. The FOMC statement said that economic activity has expanded “at a solid pace” and that labor market conditions have improved. That was certainly the case last week. The fewest Americans in almost 15 years filed applications for unemployment benefits during a holiday-shortened week that typically makes the data more volatile. Jobless claims dropped by 43,000 to 265,000 in the week ended Jan. 24, the lowest since April 2000. No state reported an increase of more than 1,000 in claims for the week ended Jan. 17. The National Association of Realtors reports its index of pending home sales fell 3.7% in December, though the year-on-year gain was 11.7%, the highest since June 2013. Pending sales measures contracts signed but not yet closed. The Census Bureau reports the number of owner-occupied households fell by 354,000 from a year earlier as the homeownership rate dropped to its lowest level since 1994. The …
