Groundhog Day EP

While a 295 point drop, or 1.8%, in the Dow will attract some headlines, we also saw a less flashy move in bonds, with the yield on 10-year Treasuries drop 10 basis points, to 1.86% – that’s a 5.2% drop. After hitting resistance levels from October, yields continued dropping to lows last seen in April.   Stocks moved lower again, following the trail of oil prices, which dropped 5.5% today to close below $30 a barrel. Not a big surprise because the trend has been lower, and a trend in place is more likely to continue than it is to reverse. We are definitely in a downtrend. The S&P 500 is now right at 10% below its May record, which means correction territory, not a  bear market, although many stocks in the S&P are in bear market territory –  specifically the energy stocks.  The rally last week looks like not much more than end-of-month reshuffling, which happened at the same time the Bank of Japan surprised the markets with negative interest rates, but the BOJ can’t announce negative interest rates every day.   Right now, any rally …

The consensus estimate calls for about 185,000 net new jobs in January, down from 292,000 in December. And just a reminder that last Friday brought the first look at fourth quarter GDP, which grew at an anemic 0.7% annual rate in the fourth quarter. That’s a bad quarter to be sure, and real GDP is up only 1.8% from a year ago. That’s a weak year judged by the US postwar average of 3.1%, but is not far from the 2.1% annual growth we’ve been averaging since 2009. The Atlanta Fed model’s initial estimate for first-quarter growth has been published; the “Nowcast” of first-quarter growth calls for 1.2% annualized growth. Weak, but not recessionary.   Also on Friday, the Bank of Japan moved to negative interest rates; this Wednesday BOJ Governor Haruhiko Kuroda is scheduled to speak. Today, European Central Bank president Mario Draghi addressed …

Despite gaining in early trading, shares in Europe turned lower. US stocks were down all day, but the selling got worse into the close.   Oil gave up some of its recent gains after Saudi Arabia said it is keeping up investments in energy products and data from China showed that diesel consumption dropped for a fourth consecutive month. Also, Iraq’s oil ministry told Reuters that the country had record output in December, producing as much as 4.13 million barrels a day. A senior Iraqi oil official said separately the country may raise output even further this year. After posting a 21% gain in just 3 days last week, West Texas Intermediate closed down 7.3%.   Following the lifting of economic sanctions and the release of billions of dollars’ worth of frozen Iranian assets, Tehran is ready for business: The country just struck a provisional deal to buy eight A380 superjumbos, while an agreement for 100 more planes from Airbus and Boeing could be completed this week. Over the weekend, China and Iran also mapped out …
