The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of November 19th, 2012

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment ServicesThe economic data were clouded by the effects of Hurricane Sandy and in most cases it’s impossible to isolate the storm’s impact. Retail sales fell 0.3% in October, although Sandy had both positive and negative effects. Initial claims for unemployment insurance benefits jumped, similar to the increase seen after Katrina in 2005. Industrial production fell 0.4% and Federal Reserve economists estimate that Sandy shaved a full percentage point from the headline production figure. Factory output fell 0.8%, but would have been flat if not for Sandy.

Currently, the Fed is buying about $40 billion per month in Mortgage-Backed Securities as part of its Large-Scale Asset Purchase program (QE3, funded by the creation of money) and about $45 billion in long-term Treasuries through its Maturity Extension Program (“Operation Twist”, funded by selling short-term Treasuries out of its portfolio). Operation Twist ends in December. «Read the rest of this article»
