11Nov2015 Market Update: Averages Session High Mark Slid To The Unchanged Line And May Fall Further As WTI Oil Slips Into The High 42's

Written by Gary

After riding high with a fake-out bullish run the averages are sliding back to the unchanged line on low volume. Crude has taken a dip into the high 42's sending bearish signals to investors while the US dollar, on the other hand, has traded sideways in a consolidation mode. Short-term session indicators are modestly bearish and investors might want to choose to sit on their hands.

Here is the current market situation from CNN Money

North and South American markets are mixed. The Bovespa is higher by 1.87%, while the S&P 500 is leading the IPC lower. They are down 0.12% and 0.05% respectively.

Oil near two-month low on worries of growing U.S. crude stockpiles

NEW YORK (Reuters) - Oil prices fell more than 2 percent on Wednesday to their lowest since mid-September on worries that U.S. government data will show a seventh weekly build in crude inventories.

ECB, Fed ready for market jolts as they head on opposite policy paths

Wall Street slightly lower as energy and retail stocks sag

Carlsberg takes $1.4 billion charges, cuts jobs

COPENHAGEN (Reuters) - Carlsberg , the Danish brewer that has long been struggling in Russia, said it would take $1.4 billion in charges and cut 2,000 jobs to position the business for a return to growth.

The Legendary U.S. Consumer Is Out Of Cash In These Cities

Today Macy's dropped a bomb with results that were nothing short of abysmal, and which confirmed that not only the "legendary" U.S. spender, the driving force behind 70% of US GDP, but also foreign shoppers have hunkered down to a greater extent than at any other time during the so-called recovery.

Quickly the apologists said that this is not an indicator of overall consumer weakness as much as it is lack of retail strength: the argument being that more spending goes to online markets.

There is just one problem: if that were the case, one would see a pronounced deterioration in spending uniformly across US cities. However, not only is that not the case, but there is a very clear distinction in which cities US consumers are doing well, versus cities in which they have been tapped out.

We know this courtesy of Bank of America's latest credit and debit card usage data which showed a dramatic divergence among the top 10 US metro areas.

As the chart below shows, there is a very distinct slow down in spending in various cities such as Atlanta and Washington DC, both of which saw a sudden and unexpected plunge in retail sales in October compared to their prior 6 month average; sales in Houston on the other hand continue to weaken â€" the region has experienced essentially no growth in nominal sales over the prior six months. On the upside, the US financial centers, Boston and New York, were the strongest as one would expect.

So for those wondering where the US consumer is all spent out, look no further than the cities at the bottom of this chart.

"Irreversibly Broken & Dysfunctional" - There's Something Wrong In The Markets

Submitted by Doug Noland via Credit Bubble Bulletin,

Bloomberg: "The October Jobs Report Gives Fed Officials a Green Light to Raise Rates."

With global "risk on" back in full swing, the focus of U.S. monetary policy belatedly shifts back to fundamentals. October's 271,000 was the largest jobs gain since last December. The unemployment rate is down to 5.0%, the low since April 2008. Average hourly earnings were up 2.5% y-o-y in October, the strongest performance since July 2009. The private sector added an eye-opening 268,000 jobs during the month, with Services employment up 241,000. Indicative of an extraordinarily unbalanced economy, no manufacturing jobs were created during October.

Existing home sales are on track for the strongest year since 2007. Automobile sales are booming as well. Monthly auto sales last month posted the strongest October since 2001 (from Dow Jones), with annual sales poised to test the all-time record. Kelley Blue Book is expecting 2015 sales 12% above 2014.

My point is not that the U.S. economy is robust - or even sound. From my perspective, booming home and auto sales reflect the upshot from years of ultra-loose financial conditions and a resulting "Bubble Economy". Importantly, the Federal Reserve's extreme monetary accommodation is grossly inappropriate considering U.S. financial and economic backdrops. Keep rates at zero, print a few Trillion, backstop booming financial markets long enough and spur unprecedented inflation in (perceived) Household Net Worth - and Bubble Economy Dynamics will eventually prevail. They have.

The Yellen Fed is now expected to raise rates next month. And, suddenly, there's some trepidation that "one and done" ...
