United States Africa CommandMonrovia, Liberia – A 34-year-old man enters an Ebola treatment unit speaking another language. He looks cold, sickly and frustrated.

An ETU volunteer is screening a woman for the Ebola Virus Disease and her test comes back positive. She is admitted into the ETU; however, she refuses to go with the clinicians because she has two small children waiting outside. She claims she is their only caretaker.

These are the types of scenarios happening in ETUs, and these scenarios are what ETU health care workers are prepared for during the five-day Ebola Treatment Unit Course led by the U.S. military, Joint Forces Command – United Assistance, at the National Police Training Academy in Monrovia, Liberia.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of October 8th, 2013

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Due to a lapse in appropriations, the government entered a partial shutdown. Some 800,000 federal workers were furloughed and about two million others continued to work but without getting paid. The economic impact of the shutdown will depend on how long it lasts.

A few days would not be a big deal, but a prolonged shutdown would result in a larger disruption of worker income (and corresponding restraint in consumer spending). In addition, the uncertainty may lead businesses to delay new hiring or capital expenditures. During the 1995-96 government shutdown, about 20% of private contracts with the government were affected.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 29th, 2013

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Next week, the markets will be interested in the ISM Manufacturing Index, but the focus should be on the September Employment Report. Seasonal adjustment is an issue in September.

We can expect to add more than 1.4 million education jobs (public and private) before adjustment, with hundreds of thousands of seasonal job losses in other areas. So it seems a little silly to worry about the nearest 20,000 or so in the adjusted payroll figure. The unemployment rate is expected to hold steady (at 7.3%) or edge a bit lower

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 22nd, 2013

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – The Federal Open Market Committee did not reduce the pace of asset purchases. In its policy statement, the FOMC noted that the improvement in economy activity and labor market conditions since it began the asset purchase program a year ago was “consistent with growing underlying strength in the broader economy,” but “the Committee decided to await more evidence that progress will be sustained before adjusting the pace of its purchases.”

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 15th, 2013

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – With a thin economic calendar, Syria remained a key concern for the markets. However, prospects for a U.S. strike diminished, which helped bolster equity market sentiment. The bond market is looking ahead to the Fed policy meeting. In the bond market, expectations on tapering have solidified somewhat, with a moderate majority seeing a small initial reduction in the pace of asset purchases.

Retail sales for August disappointed (relative to expectations), but figures for June and July were revised a bit higher. Jobless claims were distorted due to upgrades in state computer systems, but the trend had been lower in August. Hiring intentions improved. Consumer sentiment softened.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 8th, 2013

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – The economic data were mixed, but mostly on the strong side of expectations. The ISM’s two monthly surveys surprised to the upside. Motor vehicle sales advanced

However, the August Employment Report disappointed. Nonfarm payrolls rose by 169,000 (vs. a median forecast of +180,000 and expectations of an upside surprise). Figures for June and July were revised a net 74,000 lower (July went from +162,000 to +104,000).

Manufacturing rose by 6,000. Construction was flat. Retail added 44,000. The unemployment rate fell to 7.3%, but that was due to lower labor force participation (the lowest since May 1978).

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of September 1st, 2013

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – The economic data were consistent with a slowing in the rate of overall growth in July.

The estimate of second quarter growth was revised higher (to a 2.5% annual rate, vs. +1.7% in the advance estimate), but that was almost entirely due to a smaller-than-expected trade deficit (the estimate of consumer spending growth was the same and the estimate of business fixed investment was only slightly different).

Personal income and spending figures showed a poor start for the consumer in 3Q13. Durable goods orders tanked in July, reflecting a drop in aircraft orders (which were strong in May and June). However, ex-transportation orders still disappointed.
