Daily Market MoversThe following news stories, economic reports, and statistical tables are selected and compiled by founder John F. Gallwas, who has been an active participant in the financial service industry since January of 1958.
TuesdayGallup: Gallup's U.S. Economic Confidence Index dipped to -10 after reaching a new high for 2014 the week before. This dip is primarily attributed to fewer Americans saying the economy is getting better and more saying it is getting worse.
BB: The U.S. GDP was higher than expected at +3.9%, reflecting bigger gains in consumer spending and business investment and capping the strongest six months of growth in a decade.
BB: Germany's 3rd Q GDP as expected was up only +0.1% l, putting the strength of the nation’s recovery at risk.
MondayBB: The November German business confidence index was much higher than expected at 104.7 vs 103.2 in October, after the country’s economy returned to growth and the European Central Bank added stimulus to the euro area. .
SundayBB: China, which does nothing in small doses, will need about 1,000 nuclear reactors, 500,000 wind turbines or 50,000 solar farms if it takes up the fight against climate change.
BB: China may be poised to deliver deeper interest rate cuts after Friday's unexpected decision to cut one-year deposit rate by 0.25% to 2.75%, and the one-year lending rate by 0.4% to 5.6%.
BB: The difference between yields on U.S. two- and 30-year securities shrank to the least in two years as inflation below the Federal Reserve’s goal boosted speculation policy makers won’t be in a hurry to raise interest rates next year.
