MyTrendTimer : Standard and Poors 500 of October 31, 2006
Weekly Comment about this asset/index
Last Wednesday the Federal Reserve opted to keep a key short-term interest rate unchanged at 5.25 percent, as it has for the last two meetings, after raising it 17 times in a row over a more than two-year period. The US housing market's problems had been in focus all week, a government report Thursday on new home sales that saw the biggest monthly loss in September in more than 35 years. A report showed economic growth in the third quarter slowed far more than expected, due largely to the slowing housing market. Republicans could lose control of Congress over his policies in Iraq. Strong earnings, low oil prices and the likelihood that the Federal Reserve is done raising rates for now should all keep equities buoyant. Top White House economist Edward Lazear predicted on Monday that lackluster growth in U.S. gross domestic product during the third quarter would prove short-lived. In economic news, September personal income rose 0.5 percent, according to a government report released in the morning. That was more than what Wall Street economists were expecting and up from the prior month. Personal spending rose a smaller-than-expected 0.1 percent in the month.
