Advancing issues lead Declining issues 2.5 to 1, only by slight margins, as of 9/30/2016.Yields on the Stock Market are volatile at best. The market is showing only slight gains. It appears to still be a "buy down " market, to be in a Yielding capacity.
THE GLOBAL MARKET
Of the top 9 Euro Markets only 3 are up today, DAX Germany up +0.09%, Shanghai Composite (China) up +0.21% and Brazil Bovespa up +0.31% as markets near close.
The US Federal Reserve Board Chair, Janet Yellen a Democratic Appointee, has indicated that when the USA Inflation Rate reaches a Mid- Depressionary Level of 2% the FED will raise Interest Rates guaranteed. A possible increase could occur prior to reaching the 2% inflation number. When this happens, in all probability there is no recovery in sight for Americans and America.
The Near Future
The FED Chair is banking on Christmas Orders for increased production to raise Interest Rate in the USA.
It is a known fact that there will be a normal increase in Production the second half of 2016, due to the preparation of products for Christmas orders. The USA economy is currently running at a Depression Level and the low Inflation Rate of 1.0 % average for 2013-2015-2015-2016, is expected to continue to 2016 year end as projected.
The Upside is the FED did not increase Interest Rates at their last meeting September 20-21, 2016.
A FUTURE FINANCIAL OUTLOOK
Editorial Viewpoint on Just The Facts
The current US on Welfare system, has got to go or Americans will be taxed and our economic freedoms will continue to disappear.
There is no quick fix at this time. Important issues needed to be resolved years ago.
What needs to happen is a strong emerging America in Company's, Stock and Bond Markets with acceptable Price to Earning Ratios. Trickle down Entrepreneur Business Opportunities, need to be part of the plan fueled by the corporations that have bolstering business stemming from government contracts and America's future value in mind.
Real Estate availability to all, needs to be re-accessed to boost the National Economy, With business expanding not only in the Commercial sector, but also in the Residential Purchase Market. The most common American asset, "The Dream Home" needs to become a reality for everyone earning a modest to good living. Foreclosure and the chance of losing the Family Home needs to be exempted to some degree based on any new plan.
Security in Jobs and Income and to know your wages will go up and not down, like the posted results that have occurred in the last 5 years. Lower income annually is prevailing with the number of jobs increasing.
Again America needs to be the primary resource for Americans to access, for Profit today and Retirement tomorrow, independent of and in addition to Social Security. "Secured investments" instead of "blue sky investment"
need to prevail.
Real Estate is usually the largest single investment the average American understands and makes in their lifetime. This investment should have the opportunity to last a lifetime.
The USA needs to use all our assets to emerge in the next 5 years get through this current Euro economic down turn.

REAL ESTATE FUTURES
The Federal Reserve Board Chair Janet Yellen a Democratic Appointee continues to indicate that the Fed will increase Interest Rate before the end of 2016.
The Euro Central Bank has been experiencing Negative Interest Rates for 2016. China and Japan have Government Stimulus Plans in effect for their Country's slowing and poor Economy.
The FED's focus seems to be obscure in that any upward movement in Interest Rates will put America and Americans in the same welfare area as the Euro, China and Japan and others soon to follow.
The Benchmark for a Growing Economy in America is a Inflation Rate of +3.5%. The 2016 Annual Projection for the USA Inflation Rate is +1.06%. (with no standing Inventory) Inder a 1% Inflation Rate is a Economy that is in a GDP Economic Depression. The USA has been at the 1% level or lower since 2013.

Due to the fact that the Existing Home Sales Market is diving in July and August and that the summer buyers have bought their kids school clothes and school has started, who is buying?
The primary thrust of the Real Estate Market are these American Families.
Home Mortgage Rates need to go Down from the existing 3.75% Fixed Rate 30 Year Loan to 3.25% and maybe as low as 3.0% at a zero retail point cost to maintain a 0.00% Existing Home Sales Market for 2016.
