The Bottom Line

Developed world equity indices were higher last week. Star performers by far were Far East indices. Greatest influences remain ramping up of a fourth wave by COVID 19 (negative) and continued expansion of distribution of a COVID 19 vaccine (positive).

 

Observations

North American equity indices were mixed last week. The S&P 500 Index, NASDAQ Composite Index and TSX Composite Index moved slightly higher to all-time highs. On the other hand, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the Dow Jones Transportation Average moved slightly lower. North American equity indices have a history of recording a mild correction of 3%-4% between now and the beginning of October followed by resumption of an intermediate uptrend to the end of the year.

U.S. equity indices responded slightly to discouraging economic news on Friday. August non-farm payrolls substantially missed consensus estimates. U.S. equity indices interpreted the news as a slower than consensus economic recovery this fall (negative) and a delay by the Federal Reserve’s plan to taper treasury bond purchases (positive).

  1. Larry/ON Says:

    TLT – I am keeping on it breaking below the 50day MA today which has been support. If it could stay on a downward trajectory we could see money shift out of bonds and into equities. Early days now.

  2. Larry/ON Says:

    HCG – Anyone else think it’s an ultra-value buy at this level?

  3. Ron/BC Says:

    NTR

    Not stock related but I still can’t get over the low number of condos for sale in Victoria,B.C. There was about 250 in the up to $500K range a few months ago and there are only 79 for sale now. Not much left to choose from.

  4. Larry/ON Says:

    RON/BC – Did you see the article about the secret CRA assessment 25 years ago warning that foreign buyers risk distorting the Canadian real estate market. They fought in court for five years to prevent public access to the report. It’s all as bad as you ever imagined and no level of government wants to touch it unless completely forced. Drug money has been stashed in BC real estate for years after they launder it in casinos bag-fulls at a time no questions asked. Average people are competing with deep pocketed drug dealers to buy a home.

  5. Ron/BC Says:

    Larry/ON

    Yes,I’ve heard about that and it does seem to be common knowledge. I expect the housing market in B.C. will crash in the not too distant future and all those families in their run of the mill million dollar shacks with high mortgages at cheap interest rates will simply walk away from them or have them confiscated. I don’t think it will end well……
