U.S. Jobless Claims 4-Week Moving Average Inching Below 450K / Economics / US Economy

By: Asha_Bangalore

Initial jobless claims rose 2,000 to 439,000 during the week ended November 13.  Continuing claims, which lag initial jobless claims by one week, fell 48,000 to 4.295 million, the fourth consecutive weekly decline.  A large part of the decline is attributed to expiration of eligibility for unemployment insurance.  Unemployment claims under special programs increased 121,238.  It remains a challenge to sort out the special programs data as a number of people could be no longer eligible under the guidelines of the programs.

Index of Leading Economic Indicators Posts Second Impressive Monthly Gain / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Index of Leading Economic Indicators (LEI) rose 0.5% in October, following an upwardly revised 0.5% gain in September.  The June-August readings of the LEI cast a shadow on the nature of the recovery.  Moreover, the three-month annualized increase of the LEI, at 4.8%, is the largest increase since June 2010 (see chart 2).  The reversal of the 3-month annualized change of the LEI supports predictions of faster economic growth in 2011.

What Drives Business Profits? / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Kel_Kelly

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe economic and business community constantly attempts to forecast the effects of various economic changes and government policies on corporate profits. But both the cause and effect of increasing profits are other than what most people imagine. It will therefore be helpful to gain a concrete understanding of what profits do and do not represent.[1]

By: Asha_Bangalore

The Consumer Price Index (CPI) moved up 0.2% in October, after a 0.1% gain in the prior month.  The year-to-year change is 1.2%, with the CPI trending down after a 2.7% increase in December.  During the July-October period, energy prices have lifted the overall CPI.  In October, higher gasoline prices (+4.6%) were responsible for nearly 90% of the increase in the CPI.  The CPI excluding energy held steady in October after a similar reading in the prior month.  Food prices inched up 0.1% in October, putting the year-to-year gain at 1.4%.

China Continuing Pointers to Strong Economic Growth For 2011 / Economics / China Economy

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: BEIJING, People's Republic of China – While other investors are busy rounding up all sorts of economic data, tea leaves and fortune cookies in an attempt to figure out China's economic situation next year, I'm heading out the door once again to take a look at hairy crab prices.

Because of the timing of this trip, I'm a bit late in the season – but not enough that I won't be able to get a good reading on this surprisingly accurate indicator of China's economic health.

U.S. Factory Production Moves Ahead in October, Energy Costs Pushing Up Inflation / Economics / Economic Recovery

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIndustrial production held steady in October after a 0.2% drop in the prior month. Activity at the nation's mines (-0.1%) and utilities (-3.4%) declined in October and offset the gains in manufacturing output. Factory production rose 0.5% in October after holding nearly steady for two consecutive months. Nearly all major categories of manufacturing posted gains in October - autos (+5.0%), wood products (+2.5%), machinery (+1.4%), computers (+0.7%) and furniture (+0.8%). The small reversal of a decelerating trend (year-to-year change, see chart 1) is the important aspect to note from the October data.

Economies are Crumbling as Governments Play Musical Chairs with Money Printing / Economics / Quantitative Easing

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf there were a truism to fit a broad cross-section of behaviors in our society today, the catchphrase ‘desperate men do desperate things’ fits well, for sure. This is because you can see it everywhere on an increasing basis as economies of all shapes and sizes disintegrate. And it spreads like a disease, reaching all quarters of our society(s), in one way or another, propagated at the core by greedy money-center bankers and their political oligarchs hopelessly attempting to prevent a collapse of the larger fiat currency economy, hegemony economics, and US Dollar ($) supremacy. Here, it’s important to understand that when the US can no longer print the money to pay its bills the present game of musical chairs will cease and centralization will quickly reverse into regionalism, returning us to more primitive but sound economies.

The Age of Debt Deleveraging Deflation, Decade of Slow Economic Growth / Economics / Deflation

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we get into this week’s outstanding Outside the Box, I want to comment on QE2 and the efforts by some Republican economists to urge legislators to get involved to stop it (see the front page of Monday’s Wall Street Journal). That pushes my comfort zone a little too much.

First, I am not a fan of QE2. Never have been. If it had been my call, I would have punted and told the guys in the Capital that the ball was in their court to get their fiscal house in order, because that is the main source of the problem. But Bernanke and the Fed felt they had to “do something,” to demonstrate they got the seriousness of the situation. If the only policy tool you have left is the hammer of printing money, then the world looks like a nail.

Bernanke and Greenspans Pretense of Economic Knowledge Continues / Economics / Economic Theory

By: Douglas_French

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo years after the Wall Street '08 come-apart, with the economy still lingering in a funk, the Federal Reserve announced, a day after the elections, what the Associated Press called "a bold effort to invigorate the economy": the purchase of $600 billion of government bonds from now through the middle of next year, at a pace of $75 billion a month. This $600 billion is on top of the $250–$300 billion the Fed will be buying to reinvest proceeds from its mortgage portfolio.
