Fed Chair Janet Yellen Has A Serious Communications Problem

‘You don’t tell the markets anything. You just implement policy — slowly and smoothly.” That was the communication policy of late Fed Chairman William McChesney Martin (1906-1998), as recalled by finance professor Lewis Spellman of the University of Texas at Austin. Spellman, who worked at the Fed during the Johnson administration, remembers Martin vividly and…


Don’t Blame China For What’s Ailing U.S. Stocks

China’s growth may be slowing, but it’s for all the right reasons. U.S stocks on Thursday kicked off the start of October with losses, after nosediving last month as investors worried about slowing growth in China.

We believe much of the weakness was due to selling by foreign sovereign wealth funds, where the related country’s fiscal budget is heavily affected by the price of crude oil.


Market View – January 2016

2015 is now in the books and hopefully the year was personally more rewarding than what the stock markets provided. Markets around the world were down in 2015; many had double digit losses.
