Economic & Corporate Risk/Yield Reports

November 18, 2013  -- USA Economy for December 2013

As noted for  September 2013 
"As the graphs indicate (and have indicated since the beginning of the 2013 year), there is a downward pull starting in August and continuing into September and bottoming out slightly in the Risk area around the middle of September.  While the move down from the high in Yield appears drastic, the move into Risk (below 0, equilibrium) is relatively slight in September (but, it still moves into risk) and then it starts a bounce back into Yield around the November timeframe.  The movement in August/September would indicate a loss of momentum but not necessarily a precipitous decline, rather, one that is a result of confusion about the market signals and as a result, more investors move to sidelines. "

Looking at December for 2013, the economy looks like it nosedives.  This corresponds with the shifting of Congressional action into January 2014 and that time period gets closer and closer as December is counted down.  It appears that the market is topping at this point or soon will and may start adjusting downwards with a critical point reached at about December 1st (+/- 2 weeks) as the Core will be moving downwards (Delta Core/Transient Graph) and past the equilibrium point of 0.
