Market Update 1-28-11 - 01/28/11 12:08 PM
GDP, our country's gross domestic product, grew 3.2% in the 4th quarter 2010, a touch below expectations of 3.6%. Consumer spending gave the number its biggest kick, up 3.0%. That component had the biggest gain in more than four years. The Employment Cost Index, another component of GDP, rose .4% which was the second smallest gain on record. Traders follow that number closely as it has a direct correlation to wage inflation. The University of Michigan Sentiment Survey was also released, dipping .3 to 74.2. The current conditions index did the trick, falling nearly 4 points as American's question the need (0 comments)
Market Update - 01-27-2011 - 7 Year Note Auction As we suspected, the early morning trade was being sat on by traders looking to buy the auction cheap.

Market Update - 01-26-2011 - FOMC Decision The FOMC kept interest rates at 0% to .25%, unchanged from the prior period. The policy statement had only modest changes, generally confirming improving economic conditions albeit insufficient to bring down unemployment in a still struggling employment picture. QE2 is expected to run full term through June while prospects for long term inflation remain benign. The report is spot on from what the market expected, leaning on the ‘dovish" side if you're looking for a bias. Post release, the market rallied a few 32's but just like the 5 year note auction, we (0 comments)
