Clarksville, TN – The economic data calendar was thin. December trade figures were roughly in line with expectations. The University of Michigan Consumer Sentiment Index fell in the mid-February estimate.
Stock market investors were encouraged by the prospect for tax cuts following comments by U.S. President Donald Trump. In contrast, the bond market, recognizing that the process for cutting taxes will be contentious and lengthy, is less fearful of a large boost to the federal budget deficit (hence, bond yields have backed down over the past month).
Clarksville, TN – The Federal Open Market Committee left short-term interest rates unchanged, as expected, and tweaked the wording of the policy statement slightly. There were no solid clues as to the timing of the next increase in short-term interest rates, but officials noted the improvement in consumer and business sentiment and seemed a little more confident that inflation “will” increase to the 2% goal.
While January numbers are often suspect due to the magnitude of the seasonal adjustment, the economic data continued to paint a picture of the economy that is in good shape.

Clarksville, TN – The economic calendar was relatively thin. Small business optimism rose sharply in December. Growth in retail sales was concentrated in autos and gasoline – mixed and generally flat otherwise (with unusual softness in food) – but it was still a relatively good quarter overall.
Department store sales were weak, but that is a long-term trend (not necessarily a sign of consumer weakness). The PPI was largely in line with expectations, reflecting moderate pipeline inflationary pressures (consistent with further Fed rate hikes in the months ahead).
Clarksville, TN – Friends and fans of a local rock-n-roll legend, will gather at The Warehouse Concert Lounge and Event Center, on January 22nd to raise money for his family.
Gary “Roundman” Curtis died suddenly on November 7th and is being remembered for his generosity and love of music. “Roundman” led the local band “Myth” and was a non-stop music man. Myth could always been seen and heard around the local club scene, but they were always involved in the Bikers Who Care Toy Run events and outdoor concerts.
Clarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement. Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember. Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent.
Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians. «Read the rest of this article»
