MyTrendTimer : Standard and Poors 500 of February 14, 2007
Weekly Comment about this asset/index
Confusion about the economy and Fed policy - as well as a rebound in oil prices - sent stocks lower last week, with investors reluctant to move much after the previous week's big rally. This confusion has also limited the stock market advance year-to-date after a stellar run up in the second half of 2006. The Fed chief, Ben Bernanke, is going to have his semi-annual testimony before Congress on Wednesday, the House of Representatives on Thursday - is expected to touch on a range of topics related to economic growth and pricing pressure, among other issues. The US Commerce Dept. reports that the trade deficit widened in December to $61.2 bln (consensus -$59.5 bln). Oil steadied below $58 a barrel on Tuesday as the International Energy Agency boosted its 2007 demand forecast and said it saw tightening oil market fundamentals. North Korea agreed to take steps toward nuclear disarmament under a groundbreaking deal struck on Tuesday that will bring the impoverished communist state some $300 million worth of aid. Blue chips led a broad stock market rally Tuesday, as investors welcomed takeover talk about Alcoa, a rebound in commodity shares and an upgrade of GM. Wednesday brings reports on retail sales and business inventories but also the start of Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke's two-day semi-annual monetary policy report to Congress.
