12 Aug 2005 The Bulls May Take A Break
Posted at 14:52h in The Friday BriefBased on comments from the Federal Reserve earlier this week and their actions in the previous weeks, it appears rates are headed considerably higher. They say they believe higher short term rates and the possibility of an inverted yield curve will not create a recession. We and other investors are not so sure. While much remains to be seen in the coming months, we see little to move the broad markets ahead. But if the broad markets will be sideways to down there remain some select opportunities that still look promising. In light of a weakening economy we have taken and will continue to take some profits among our more economically sensitive issues.
