The US equity market has now risen more than 10% since the index broke the ascending triangle at 3025.
The short term sentiment is bullish thus we advise clients to exercise caution and move into cash by Jan end.
S&P 500 closes a strong week higher. Many have argued that this is the blow off top. The lack of selling activity suggests that there is more to come as low volatility climb continues. Unless there is a correction 3% single day, we will not be interested in any selling yet.
There was some good news on the real estate sector. New ground breaking surged, thus giving much needed momentum to the housing sector.
Earnings estimates have been higher and higher over the last 3 years thus feeding the global equity rush. The underlying economy though has started to slip as shown below.
The industrial production numbers were absolutely rotten to say the least. New orders plunged clearly suggesting the economy has entered into the winter. The stocks investors fed by crowding, ignores the ground reality. We suspect there is a reality check coming for equity investors world wide.
The US total debt has now hit a all time high at 23.1 Trillion. This comes even as US treasury plans to issue new 20 year bonds.
A scatter of global risks show concentration of inflation and deflation risks in the low likelihood and low impact category. However the asset bubble has now crossed into the higher likelihood segment. We note the emergence of a global governance failure as a high likelihood and high impact event which has emerged increasingly in Asian and middle eastern countries. Investors are advised to be aware of the risks going forward.
