Get Used To Scapegoats

These explanations, designed to misdirect and confuse, only poison the political and social backdrop.

Gene Simmons' Rx to fix Washington: Elect businessmen

News
Gene Simmons, the bassist, songwriter, and co-founder of Kiss, understands how to lead and manage a brand better than most MBAs from top tier business schools.  When The Demon speaks, people outside the traditional sphere of influence, such as the Kiss Army, should at least listen.  While more business-minded professionals could help soften the blow of the coming 'crash and burn' economic crisis, very few exists in today's binary political system.  Even if they did, spawning from a grassroots driven third party, it's likely too late to prevent it.  The message from history is very clear - fixes come only after lots of finger pointing, scapegoating, and anger.
 
Headline: Gene Simmons' Rx to fix Washington: Elect businessmen

Dow Transports Leading

Transports
The Dow Transportation Average, a leading sector within the secular bull market, has established new highs. This increases the probability that more widely-followed indices, such as the Dow Industrials, SP 500, will soon follow. While only a fool blindly chase strength as a cyclical high approaches, only a greater fool fails to recognize a growing bullish tone of this cause building phase.

Signs of Outflows From Japan

Nikkei
The Yen, technically speaking, is in trouble (chart 1). While the Yen's technical breakdown caught smart money's eye in 2013, it has eluded the 'hard-nosed reporting' of nearly all forms of media, the general public (international and domestic), central bankers (at least publicly), politicians, etc.

In general, the world remains oblivious to the Yen's downtrend and "defensive reallocations but don't call them outflows" from Japan.  Accumulation of the Nikkei by the invisible hand - bullish setups in July followed by a second, even stronger setup or cluster in October (chart 2) indicates that these trend are well-known and expected to continue regardless of leadership or policy. Japanese citizens will recognize what the invisible hand is already discounting soon.

Headline: Japan shares soar, yen skids after BOJ stuns with new easing steps

By Lisa Twaronite

TOKYO (Reuters) - Japanese stocks soared 4.8 percent to their highest close since November 2007 and the yen skidded to near seven-year lows against the dollar on Friday, after the Bank of Japan surprised markets with fresh easing steps it called a pre-emptive move to stoke inflation.

The Nikkei stock average marked its biggest one-day gain since June 2013 after Japan's central bank said it would purchase more shares of exchange-traded funds and real estate investment trusts, extend the duration of its portfolio of Japanese government bonds, and increase the pace at which it expands base money to "pre-empt manifestation" of risks.

What Else Drives Price?

News
Big deal! Those that learn to read the message of the market, the movement of capital between continents, nations, citizens and markets, quickly realize that US-centric interpretations of market are not only antiquated but also dangerous to the bottom line. While there's no shortage of experts parsing Fed policies and statements as drivers of markets, their numbers and repetitive tactics don't validate their work. The human behavior to stand with the crowd, the fear of being unpopular within a group is strong even among children, means old ideas, such as US-centric interpretations of markets, die hard. Those that follow them without asking "what else drives price?" won't last long in this business.

Headline: Fed pulls the plug on its stimulus program

With the U.S. economy showing signs of life, the Federal Reserve moved Wednesday to end billions of dollars in monthly bond purchases aimed at boosting growth.

The central bank had initiated the policy, known as "quantitative easing," in 2008 to keep interest rates low and boost economic activity following the financial crisis. Six years later, Fed officials said in a policy statement that the economy is improving at a "moderate" pace.
