Food Industry Efficiencies: Agricultural Futures Have Misdirected on Relative Food CPI

on Apr 25, 2011 7:45 am by Howard L. Simons

I could probably get more people to believe in UFOs or that they will receive Social Security someday than I can get to believe anything implying an increase in productivity or economic efficiency. People just seem more at ease in believing the worst about each other. I say this as a prelude to today's topic, the surprisingly low excess rate of food price inflation relative to the CPI Ex-Foo...

Dow Sets a New Year-to-Date High

on Apr 25, 2011 8:00 am by Richard Suttmeier - The Street

The Dow Industrial Average reached a new year to date high at 12,506 on Thursday, while all the other equity averages I track did not. The markets will be sensitive to the Fed Statement Wednesday afternoon and the first ever press conference following an FOMC meeting by Fed chief Ben Bernanke.

Where Next for Gold, Silver, and the S&P 500?

on Apr 25, 2011 8:15 am by David Banister

The market action in both the precious metals complex and the equities markets has been moving in clearly defined Fibonacci and Elliott Wave patterns for quite some time now.

Brazil's Interest Rates Hit 12%, Lower Rise Than Expected

on Apr 25, 2011 9:00 am by Girish Gupta

Brazil's already high interest rate was raised to the psychological benchmark of 12% this week, in an attempt to keep inflation down.

How to Manage Portfolio Risk Amid Sovereign Debt Woes

on Apr 25, 2011 9:15 am by Professor Pinch

Like that evil kid in "Poltergeist," there are probably many investors out there whose... Read More

The "Miracle" of Compound Inflation

on Apr 25, 2011 9:30 am by John Mauldin

Albert Einstein is famously quoted as saying, "Compound interest is the eighth wonder of the world." And compounding is indeed the topic of this week's shorter than usual letter, though compounding not of interest but of inflation.
