Thursday, February 21, 2013 – the Big Coincidence

Note: I will be a speaker at the upcoming 2013 Wealth Protection Conference in Tempe, AZ on April 4th and 5th. Click here for details and registration information. Hope to see you there. The Big Coincidence by Sinclair Noe DOW – 46 = 13,880SPX – 9 = 1502NAS – 32 = 3131 10 YR YLD + .04 = 1.98%OIL – 2.23 = 92.99GOLD + 12.10 = 1577.40SILV + .12 = 28.78 We had a bundle of economic reports to start the day.

The Philly Fed’s  gauge of regional manufacturing activity fell to negative 12.5 in February from negative 5.8 in January with declines in overall activity and new orders. And Markit, a financial information services company, said its gauge of manufacturing activity dropped to 55.2 in February from 55.8. Any reading above 50 indicates expansion but the purchasing managers index showed a slower expansion, with weaker new orders and employment. Initial jobless claims rose 20,000 to a seasonally adjusted 362,000 in …
