One thing is beyond dispute: The US economy seems to be booming - while the dollar keeps falling. The obvious question is: how long can this go on before the falling dollar will kill the economic recovery?

The answer: It doesn't matter.

What kind of an "answer" is that??

It's the only truthful one . . .

Anyone catch this jazzy headline??

China's banking regulator approved auto-financing ventures by General Motors Corp., Volkswagen AG and Toyota Motor Corp. in a move that could further stimulate China's booming car market.

Gold and silver markets holding firm. Wonder if silver can add to its gains or if it is time for a rest.

U.S. beef products banned for 7 years


2003/12/30
TAIPEI, Taiwan, The China Post Staff



The Council of Agriculture (COA) yesterday announced that American beef products will be banned for a period of seven years after mad-cow disease was reported in the United States, and importers or retailers who violate the ban will face stiff fines, according to a report by the local Eastern Television.
The COA said retailers who tout American beef products imported after Dec. 24 or label American beef as Australian or New Zealand beef will face a fine between NT$30,000 and NT$150,000.

I strongly recommend that everyone read Fleck's Mania Chronicles.

Its absolutely scary that the same thing is happening all over again.

All bad news is bought. All dips are bought. Absolutely no sellers anywhere. Economic events like a collapsing dollar, interest rate hikes, lowered earnings guidance, etc. have no adverse effect on stock prices.

Some of the moves in 1999 - 2000 were simply breathtaking.

The Nasdaq Composite had been in decline for the last six trading days of
January, shaving 555 points from the high to the low.

January ended with a thud. With the Fed likely to again raise the discount interest
rate during their meeting on February 2, market participants realized the risks in holding expensive stocks were escalating.

Energy prices were weighing on the market as well; the cost per gallon of
gasoline had hiked around 30 percent while heating oil had doubled over the prices of ayear ago.

To round it all out, big names Qualcomm (QCOM), EMC (EMC), Compaq (CPQ)
and then Dell (DELL) all issued troubling news regarding earnings or revenues.

As if in answer to the downside work that had been done, the bull crowd showed that they were still in firm control as February began, powering the Nasdaq higher by 680 points over the next seven trading days.

During this period, on February 2, 2000, the Fed raised the discount rate by
another 25 basis points the fourth hike. Same song . . . the Fed is ahead of the curve, same dance . . . the market goes up in relief and jubilation.


And one month later......

(February 29, 2000) Intel notwithstanding, the Sox was where it was at today. It exploded by ten percent, up 104 points. Just to put that number in perspective and bore you with a few fundamental details, at the end of 1995 the SOX index was about 200. The index now stands at 1170. What's interesting is that semiconductor revenues worldwide at the end of 1995 were just about even with where they were at the end of 1999. In other words, even though this index is up sixfold, semiconductor revenues are about the same as they were in 1995. I guess the logic must be that they were just too darned cheap back in 1995. But one must remember that this is month end, so maybe some of the power in the SOX index, as well as other favorites, was related to guys making sure their portfolio looked dandy for the end of the month - who knows?
