DOW -253.25 Thursday(-)

(CnnMoney)
Global stock market overview: U.S. stock futures are sinking
and nearly all European markets are in the red in early trading.
Asian markets closed the day with losses.
Japan's Nikkei posted the largest drop, down 1.9% after
enduring significant volatility.

..............
What a difference 24 hours makes.
Guess traders had forgotten a few facts.
One, World GDP estimates are lower than previous thought.
The fiscal state of countries like Brazil, Canada, Japan.
Plunging commodity prices is going translate in lower spendable income.
Europe is probably going to lower rates to stimulate some weakness.
The slowing economy of China. Ect, ect.
Then the effects of higher rates also.
Yet, few can be found predicting a lower stock market in 2016.
Still, rates are very low.

Futures are firmly in the red.

Going with DOWN on Friday,

Jim Kynikos President of Kynikos Associates on the future of oil:

"It's down an awful lot," he said. "Having said that, I think if you were
to look out five or 10 years, if I was a member of OPEC I would be pumping
as much as I could today while it's worth something because it might not be
worth a whole lot by 2030."
I think what's going to happen, what is really fascinating, is that you're going
to see this connection between solar and electric vehicles, and I think that's one
of the more interest things that not a lot of people are [talking about].
Imagine a world in which most of the vehicles are electric and yet they are
powered off the grid by natural gas and solar. So you reduce coal emissions
and you reduce burning oil. Eighty percent of all petroleum demand is transportation.

2016 is set to be the warmest year ever recorded, according
to a forecast issued by the UK Met Office on Thursday.

Climate change and the peaking of the El Niño weather phenomenon are expected to
drive the global average temperature next year above the record now certain to be
set for 2015, which itself beat a new record set in 2014.

The Rigging Of The American Market
By Robert Reich of RobertReich.org

The Rigging of the American Market
SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 1, 2015
Much of the national debate about widening inequality focuses on whether
and how much to tax the rich and redistribute their income downward.
But this debate ignores the upward redistributions going on every day,
from the rest of us to the rich. These redistributions are hidden inside the market.
The only way to stop them is to prevent big corporations and Wall Street banks from
rigging the market.
For example, Americans pay more for pharmaceuticals than do the citizens of any
other developed nation.
That’s partly because it’s perfectly legal in the U.S. (but not in most other nations)
for the makers of branded drugs to pay the makers of generic drugs to delay introducing
cheaper unbranded equivalents, after patents on the brands have expired.
This costs you and me an estimated $3.5 billion a year – a hidden upward redistribution
of our incomes to Pfizer, Merck, and other big proprietary drug companies, their executives,
and major shareholders.
We also pay more for Internet service than do the inhabitants of any other developed nation.
The average cable bill in the United States rose 5 percent in 2012 (the latest year available),
nearly triple the rate of inflation.
Why? Because 80 percent of us have no choice of Internet service provider, which allows
them to charge us more.
Internet service here costs 3 and-a-half times more than it does in France, for example,
where the typical customer can choose between 7 providers.
And U.S. cable companies are intent on keeping their monopoly.
It’s another hidden upward distribution – from us to Comcast, Verizon, or another giant cable
company, its executives and major shareholders.
Likewise, the interest we pay on home mortgages or college loans is higher than it would be
if the big banks that now dominate the financial industry had to work harder to get our business.
As recently as 2000, America’s five largest banks held 25 percent of all U.S. banking assets.
Now they hold 44 percent – which gives them a lock on many such loans.
If we can’t repay, forget using bankruptcy. Donald Trump can go bankrupt four times and walk
away from his debts, but the bankruptcy code doesn’t allow homeowners or graduates to reorganize
unmanageable debts.
So beleaguered homeowners and graduates don’t have any bargaining leverage with creditors –
exactly what the financial industry wants.
The net result: another hidden upward redistribution – this one, from us to the big banks, their
executives, and major shareholders.
Some of these upward redistributions seem to defy gravity. Why have average domestic airfares
risen 2.5% over the past, and are now at their the highest level since the government began tracking
them in 1995 – while fuel prices, the largest single cost for the airlines, have plummeted?
Because America went from nine major carriers ten years ago to just four now. Many airports are
now served by one or two.
This makes it easy for airlines to coordinate their fares and keep them high – resulting in another
upward redistribution.
Why have food prices been rising faster than inflation, while crop prices are now at a six-year low?
Because the giant corporations that process food have the power to raise prices.
Four food companies control 82 percent of beef packing, 85 percent of soybean 63 percent of pork
packing, and 53 percent of chicken processing.
Result: A redistribution from average consumers to Big Agriculture.
Finally, why do you suppose health insurance is costing us more, and co-payments and deductibles
are rising?
One reason is big insurers are consolidating into giants with the power to raise prices.
They say these combinations make their companies more efficient, but they really just give them
power to charge more.
Health insurers are hiking rates 20 to 40 percent next year, and their stock values are skyrocketing
(the Standard & Poor’s 500 Managed Health Care Index recently hit its highest level in more than
twenty years.)
Add it up – the extra money we’re paying for pharmaceuticals, Internet communications, home mortgages,
student loans, airline tickets, food, and health insurance – and you get a hefty portion of the average
family’s budget.
Democrats and Republicans spend endless time battling over how much to tax the rich and then redistribute
the money downward.
But if we didn’t have so much upward redistribution inside the market, we wouldn’t need as much downward
redistribution through taxes and transfer payments.
Yet as long as the big corporations, Wall Street banks, their top executives and wealthy shareholders have
the political power to do so, they’ll keep redistributing much of the nation’s income upward to themselves.
Which is why the rest of us must gain political power to stop the collusion,
bust up the monopolies, and put an end to the rigging of the American market.

Americans are living right on the edge — at least when it comes to financial planning.

Approximately 62% of Americans have less than $1,000 in their savings accounts and 21%
don’t even have a savings account.
“It’s worrisome that such a large percentage of Americans have so little set aside
in a savings account,” says Cameron Huddleston, a personal finance analyst for the site.
“They likely don’t have cash reserves to cover an emergency and will have to rely on
friends and family,or even their retirement accounts to cover unexpected expenses.”

DOW -23.90 Monday(+)


(Usatoday.com Money)
Stocks fell and oil prices took a tumble Monday as the broad
Standard & Poor's 500 stock index kicked off the final week
of the year by slipping back into the red in a volatile year
that has made it tough for U.S. stocks to make much headway.

(CnnMoney)
U.S. stock futures are slightly lower. Oil prices are seeing a bit of life,
with crude trading around $37 a barrel after declining Monday.
European markets are bouncing higher, with shares in Paris and Frankfurt up
by more than 1%. Asian markets rebounded as well after falling Monday.

Futures still firmly positive.

Economists estimate the confidence measure rebounded to 93.6 in December
from 90.4 as gasoline prices kept tumbling and solid employment growth
continued. Despite the ups and downs, the index's average this year has
been the highest so far in the recovery.

This week: Consumer confidence, home prices, trade

------------------------------------------
The number of companies with the lowest credit ratings and negative outlooks jumped
to 195 in December, the highest level since March 2010, says Standard & Poor's.
The biggest culprit for the jump in these so-called "weakest links" is the oil
and gas sector, which accounts for 34 of them. But financial companies are close behind,
representing 33 of the weakest links, says S&P.

The bond markets are starting to factor in the dangerous combination of rising interest rates
as well as profit weakness in several sectors. The U.S. distress ratio - a measure of the amount
of risk the market has priced into bonds - hit 20.1% in November,
which is the highest level since hitting 23.5% in September 2009, says S&P. That's an onerous
indicator since September 2009 takes investors back to the last recession.

The largest percentage of the distressed debt - 37% - is concentrated in the oil and gas sector.
The sector is getting hammered by falling commodity prices. But metals, mining and steel is
hurting too, with a 72% distress ratio. Time will tell if the
debt market can handle this shock.

Debt distress level at highest since recession

DOW -276.09 Monday(+)


(CnnMoney)
Global markets are sliding for a second day running and the mood
on Wall Street remains grim.
U.S. stock futures are slipping after Monday's sharp falls.
European markets are mostly lower.

China shares closed moderately lower, recovering during the day after
opening the session down 3%. China's central bank pumped $20 billion
into the financial system.

Chinese CSI 300 fell 7%, wiping out $590 Billion in share value.
Fall steep enough to trigger a break clause suspending trade for the day.

Oil prices are down slightly at around $36.60 in early trading.
Increased tension between Middle East rivals Saudi Arabia and Iran
caused wild swings in prices on Monday.

US Futures currently off -122.00


Would expect early sell off follow by a rebound but not enough
to finish in the Green.

DOW +52.12 Monday(-)


(CNBC)
Overnight news will likely again be key for stock market action Tuesday.
First, Wall Street is watching China for any further weakening in the yuan
and the action in the local stock market. Stabilization in the yuan on Monday
helped U.S. equities close mixed, despite a sharp decline in mainland Chinese
stocks and a plunge in oil prices.

Federal Reserve Vice Chair Stanley Fischer is due to speak at 5:30 a.m. ET,
and reiteration of the likelihood of four rate hikes this year could further
unsettle investors who are uncertain about whether the U.S. economy is
strong enough to support that pace of tightening.

DOW +117.65 Tuesday(+)

(CnnMoney)

Better than expected export trade data from China has given
investors some respite after a terrible start to the year.
Crude futures are bubbling up around 1% to above $31 a barrel
after oil briefly sank below $30 for the first time since December 2003.
The selling on Tuesday left crude down 19% this year alone, and 72% from
its June 2014 peak of almost $108.

DOW -364.81 Wednesday(-)


(AP)
Stocks tumbled again on fears of a global slowdown
and alarm over plummeting oil prices, officially sending
the Standard & Poor's 500 index into what's known as a correction,
or a drop of 10 percent or more from its peak.

The Dow Jones industrial average also slumped,
losing more than 300 points.

The eight-day drop is the worst start to a year
in the history of both the S&P 500 and the Dow.


(CnnMoney)
European markets are all firmly in the red in early trading,
with the main indexes down more than 2%. Asian markets were mixed
with the Nikkei closing down 2.7%, after plummeting as much as 4.4%.


Never a good day to be on the wrong side of the triple digit move.

DOW -364.81 Thursday(-)

A rally in battered energy shares led U.S. stocks to rebound on Thursday,
while financials rose after upbeat results from JPMorgan Chase & Co.

The S&P 500 registered its biggest daily percentage gain since Dec. 4
and ended back above 1,900 in the heaviest volume day so far this year.


It's a rough start to the last day of the trading week.

On Wednesday stocks got crushed and officially entered a "correction,"
defined as a 10% drop from recent highs.
This is the second time in the past six months that this has happened.
That has only happened three times in the last 100 years. Unfortunately,
those occurrences were in 1929, 2000 and 2008. As you may recall, those
were not particularly good years for the bulls.
each of these years saw major market crashes: One led to the Great Depression,
another saw the air come out of the tech bubble that ushered in a new millennium,
and one led to the Great Recession.

The S&P 500 fell more than 10% in each of these years and dropped 38% in 2008 alone.
The 1929 and 2000 events were followed by more brutal years.

On Thursday, stocks were ripping higher but the topsy-turvy action seen in markets this year
is what really has markets on edge, and Thursday's rally probably isn't putting many investors
at ease.

Now that the U.S. and European Union have lifted some sanctions on Iran,
the OPEC country can begin selling its massive stockpile of oil.

The sale of this seaborne oil will allow Iran to get an immediate financial boost before it
ramps up production. The onslaught of Iranian oil is coming at a terrible time for the global
oil markets, which are already drowning in an epic supply glut.
Crude oil prices crashed below $30 a barrel last week as Iranian sanctions relief loomed.
Now that it's official, oil remains under pressure, sinking below $29 a barrel on Sunday evening.
"The oil markets are already flooded. It's like you've already had 16 inches of rain in a flood zone,
and now you're getting a few more inches," said Tom Kloza, global head of energy analysis at the
Oil Price Information Service.
