Market Minute Oct 16, 2012

In the past 30 days natural gas prices have soared +18% (off depressed levels), 30 year bonds up 3% (on weak growth estimates), Gold down -1.9% ( from the Fed’s liquidity affair) and stocks off -1.8% (technical noise). The next two Presidential debates: today Oct 16th, and Monday the 22nd, may very well tell the tape on winning this cat fight of an election. It’s said, “behind the darkest cloud there’s a silver lining.” The debates have spotlighted to American’s the need for constructive fiscal reform. Whoever wins will be prodded to ink an agreement that serves and preserves our country’s interests. The minute’s up – have a creative day.
