U.K. Consumer Confidence Held at 1 1/2-Year High in October

 

Nov. 4 (Bloomberg) -- U.K. consumer confidence held at the highest level in 1 1/2 years last month as house prices recovered, Nationwide Building Society said today.

 

An index of sentiment was at 72 in October, the same as in September, Britain’s biggest customer-owned lender said in an e- mailed statement today. TNS questioned 1,000 people for Nationwide from Sept. 21 to Oct. 18.

 

Bank of England policy makers will probably decide tomorrow to increase their bond-purchase plan to 225 billion pounds ($367 billion) to combat Britain’s longest-ever recession. House prices rose 1.2 percent last month, though they have still dropped 17 percent since the 2007 peak, Lloyds Banking Group Plc’s Halifax division said yesterday.

Trichet’s ‘Black List’ Fails to Deter Weber as ECB Nears Exit

Nov. 4 (Bloomberg) -- Jean-Claude Trichet is struggling to control Germany’s Axel Weber and fellow European Central Bank council members who are flouting communications etiquette as the bank prepares to exit emergency stimulus measures.

 

Weber pushed bond yields higher when he breached ECB protocol on Oct. 29 by revealing a possible policy shift on long-term lending to banks, something normally reserved for Trichet. Weber and Belgium’s Guy Quaden also broke a rule that officials refrain from commenting on policy in the week before interest-rate decisions, even though Trichet keeps a list of those who speak out of turn.

Massive all pervasive compacency:

 

Fed - wont do a thing - not even change their "words" - Not a Problem

Stocks - just a matter of picking the strong "sectors" and "rotating"

Corporate Bonds - OK for old ladies - real men buy STOCKS

Treasuries: Fully "valued" - but not going anywhere

 

Everything is just fine. Right?

Emailed a gold news letter writer last night. Remarkably he is calling a top here and a move in gold back down to $750 utilizing some Elliott wave nonsense. (Prechters crowd have been calling a top in gold from $258).

 

Gheez! Seems some 'expert' TA people can not even read a chart from left to right.
