No Sense in Wasting Our Time

The US will call on G20 countries later to use fiscal policy in order to boost global demand.  American officials will also urge all members to refrain from manipulating exchange rates for competitive purposes, in line with existing G20 commitments.   The world’s oil giants were meeting today. At a conference in Houston, Saudi oil minister Ali Al-Naimi, considered the world’s most powerful energy policymaker, said production cuts will not happen. Last week, Saudi Arabia, Russia, Qatar and Venezuela proposed a freeze that would cap production at January levels. But Naimi said: “Freeze is the beginning of a process, and that means if we can get all the major producers to agree not to add additional balance, then this high inventory we have now will probably decline in due time. It’s going to take time. It is not like cutting production. That is not going to happen because not many countries are going to deliver even if they say they will cut production, they will not deliver. So there is no sense in wasting our time seeking production cuts.” Global production is projected to be 95 million barrels a day …

The ECB announced plans yesterday to expand asset purchases by €60B per month until at least September 2016. ECB President Mario Draghi says the new stimulus plan “should strengthen demand, increase capacity utilization and support money and credit growth.” Well, it will make somebody rich, but the benefits to the broader Euro economy are still very much up in the air. Bonds in the region rallied, with the yields on 10-year notes of Germany, Italy, Spain and France falling to all-time lows. Stocks in the region on track for their best week since 2011 but the euro currency has dropped below $1.12. Greece’s leftist Syriza party leads the opinion polls heading into an election on Sunday. The ECB’s debt-purchasing program will not include Greece, at least not until July, and only then if a continuing review of the country’s bailout program is successfully completed.

Wednesday, February 05, 2014 – Another Perfect Day

Another Perfect Day by Sinclair Noe DOW – 5 = 15,440SPX – 3 = 1751NAS – 19 = 401110 YR YLD + .04 = 2.67%OIL + .11 = 97.30GOLD + 3.20 = 1258.60SILV + .39 = 20.00 Yesterday on the Review we talked about the Congressional Budget office report. For a while this morning, the Internet was hopping with job-killing hype, when in fact the truth was vastly different. Obamacare’s impact, the CBO concluded, would lessen the supply of labor by encouraging certain folks not to work: “The estimated reduction stems almost entirely from a net decline in the amount of labor that workers choose to supply, rather than from a net drop in businesses’ demand for labor, so it will appear almost entirely as a reduction in labor force participation and in hours worked. . . .” That’s different than what most of the media was saying today. And then a funny thing happened; some reporters actually read the report, and the headlines changed just a little:  Wall Street Journal earlier: Health-Care Law Expected to Take Greater Toll on Workforce Wall Street Journal now: Health Law Seen Leading to Some Loss of Labor Talk Radio News Service earlier: Obamacare Will Cost 2.5 Million Jobs: Report Talk Radio News Service now: 2.5 Million Will Exit Work Force Because Of Obamacare National Review earlier: The CBO Just Nuked Obamacare National Review now: The CBO Just Nuked Obamacare The CBO never, ever reported that Obamacare would somehow or other kill more than …
