Newsworthy Story 2018:

10-15-2018 The Election ahead of the Congress and in part the 
Senate. This is an important election for America. It will basically deceide will America go forward as a Democracy with the current President leading the way. Or will it become Socialist type country under the new Democratic way. It seems that a simple fix to the Democracy like we have been seeing is more what we need.

8-28-2018 Trump Success
since January 20, 2017 according to the Washington Examiner Newspaper June 4, 2018 article. This is just several snip-its from the article. A Link will be provided at the end of the snip-its so you may review the details of each assertion. No News Media Talking Head drama here Just The Facts.

7-20-2018 FED
continues its pre-planned December 2016 rate hike plan. In 2008 the Federal Debt Held By the Federal Reserve Board was (-$475.9 Billion). This was the end result of FED Chair Alan Greenspan, tenure of 20 years from August 11,1987 to January 31, 2006. During that time America averaged approximately a 2.5%+ Inflation Rate. Greenspan is credited as the FED Chair of the USA's longest economic expansion and a master at realigning policy issues to fit the USA economic growth expectations under 4 Presidents. Since, in 2010 under a new FED Chair Bernanke, the Obama Administration in just 2 years increased the FED negative debt to (-$776.7 Billion) up, about 39%. By 2016 the FED debt had increased to (-$2 Trillion 843 Billion) or up, about 6 times. Since Greenspans exit in 2006 there has been 2 FED Chairs. Ben Bernanke and Janet Yellen, Washington Bureaucrats who are primarily responsible for the added debt of (-$2 Trillion 368 Billion).  iThis as done in just 10 years from 2006-2016. The newly appointed FED Chair as of January 2018, Jerome Powell is proving to be another Bureaucrat. The FED indicates today that "as the Central Bank Of The United States of America the FED wants to maintain a separate position from America, in its decision and policy making."


6-12-2018 Trump
visits North Korea in an effort for World Peace. This is a notable event. What was accomplished is that both leaders set out their expectations, desires and goals for the future.

5-15-2018 Trump is making progress despite many negative influences at home and abroad. The USA Banking Industry from January 2017 to today
has strengthened. Diplomatic relations are improving at this time. International relationships are viable and subject to abrupt changes due to Terrorist influences at this time. Economically, Americans are beginning to see a dim light at the end of the last eight years of a dark tunnel. The current adverse influence of the Federal Reserve Board and their unwillingness to look at Americas and Americans First immediate and distant future is a big stumbling block for the new administration. Income level and economic standards have not returned to the 2007 level  yet, and poverty and food stamps are still at their highest level in history. Real Estate has not shown any overall Nationwide Grow, the in the last two years and year to date. Retail Sales have been hovering at Zero for the last twelve months.  Auto Sales are down and not showing any rebound over year end prices, discounts and sales. American Peoples Purchasing Power is at a all time low.

4-11-2018 SDG's Sustainable Development Goals
and how far of a reach is it now for America to attain these world wide acclaimed goals for any country. Discussed at the French accord here are 8 of the 17 goals that may or may not be achievable today in America, more or less anywhere else in the world. No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-being, Quality Education, Gender Equality,
Clean Water and Sanitation, Affordable and Clean Energy,
Decent Work and Economic Growth. These ideals are ones American have enjoyed and were the indirect and unknown focus of The Declaration Of Independence 1776 and Constitution of the United States 1789. Today with the continued USA expansion directed toward these optimum goals we can experience uplifting financial freedom and security to our futures somewhat abroad and especially here at home.

3-19-2018 USA World wide war efforts continue as Trump attempts negotiations for the peoples of other countries and to prevent the USA from new terrorism in doing so. In addition the American people continue to struggle as over 70,000 of USA business have been move to Communist and other countries under NAFTA, approved during the 1992-2000 political administration. The result of these actions by the US government has had a critical and adverse effect on American's and US citizens in the reduction of 10's of millions of good paying jobs at $19.00 to $50.00 dollars per hour. These jobs, via NAFTA have been transferred to Communist Countries  and governments that  run sweet shops. In America during the early 1900's sweet shops met their match with the emergence of Unions. Currently the only Unions with influence in Americans work place are Unions that are affiliated with government employees.

 

12-27-2017 USA celebrates a New Year 2018
as Real Estate sales emerge slightly in the last 3 months of September, October and November. This may be the result of the replacement of the existing FED Chair for 2018. The existing FED Chair from the prior administration did deliver one more blow to America and Americans as promised 4th Prime Rate increase on December 14, 2017. The current Prime Rate is 4.50%. The Prime Rate has not been 4.50% since October 8, 2008  two months after the onset of the mortgage crisis.


USA REAL ESTATE 
is on a down trend for 2017 at (-0.51%) from January to October 1, 2017. This is in all probability is due to the fact that the Federal Reserve Board has destroyed the Consumer Confidence due to a foretasted Prime Rate increases. A contributing factor is that mortgage interest rates are being manipulated at a lower Teaser Rate level that appears to be unacceptable to buyers and  refinancing, due to tighter underwriting guidelines and the potential of accelerating interest rates.There are several Cities in the USA that are showing an appreciation of value for one reason or another. See the update at the base of this page for home values and percentage of increase for 2017 of these select areas. Most recent survey as of 10-31-2017.

10-4-2017-USA and North Korea:
USA's position on North Korea and their unresponsiveness's to the Nuclear Ban issue requests by the USA, could have an effect on worldwide economics and trade in 2018. Japan's primary concern is that North Korean Tests are in direct line with Japan as a target of a potential attack. Japan and North Korea have never had any friendly relationships. China's influence on North Korea is only from a position of international strength that favors North Korea. China " he who acts first is the adversary."

9-7-2017-USA Jobs
have been increasing in 2017 at approximately at about 160,000 per month, per the FED and US Bureau of Labor Statistics. Then the question becomes what is a job? It used to be 40 hours a week. But that number of full time work hours has been reduced by 12.5% or more to 35 hours. What is the Wage? In most cases that has been reduced approximately 30% from historic standards. In October 2016 there were 43 Million plus Americans Living in Poverty and almost 43 Million on Food Stamps. Today in September 2017 there are 42 Million Americans Living in Poverty and 41 Million on Food Stamps. The USA work force today is comprised of 153 Million Americans. So basically 25% of Americans are in Poverty earning less than $20,000 annual and/or on Food Stamps. In the year 2000 there were 156 Million Americans in the Work force at 40 hours a week and higher wages than today. These are recessionary numbers.

7-25-2017-USA Home Sales:
fall to just above Zero for the first 6 months of 2017.The Federal Reserve Bank has successfully put the USA economy back into a recession/depression mode in 2017. The 6 month average for Home Sales in the USA is 0.16%. Retail sales are just above Zero also for the first 6 months of 2017, coming in at -0.2% for June 2017. The 6 month average for USA Retail Sales is 0.03%. Retail Sales reflect about 65% of the USA consumer economy. New Housing Sales are just up 1.71% from January to June 2017 with unconfirmed closings.This figure will go down. Housing Starts are at -2.06 for the same period.

The following is an excerpt from the Democratic appointee Janet Yellen Fed Chair in her opening statement on June 14, 2017 at the Fed Open Market Committee meeting. Yellen read into the record " this reflects the progress the economy has made and is expected to make to maximize job employment and price stability objectives." The statement is constructed to support of the last three FED Interest Rate Hikes in 11 months of 0.75% including the June 14, 2017 Prime Rate Increase of 0.25%.

7-1-2017-USA Economy:
is headed for a recessionary level again as experienced in the last 8 years, 2009 to 2016 orchestrated by the preceding 2008 and 2009-2016 administrations. Retail Sales are a zero, auto sales are lower than 2016 with dealers offering up to a -20% discount on or all some models in their inventory to move them for the 2018 models. Real Estate values and Sales are at a lower value and level for the last 12 months.

6-14-2017-US FED: Raised Prime Lending Rates for the third time in 10 months. These raises were forcasted by the FED in December 2016 without any consideration of the USA Economy and its down trending results from the FED actions. It has also been predicted that the USA Gross Domestic Product will result in a -0.10% for year end 2017 by International Banking sources..



6-6-2017: USA GDP FORECAST:
for 2017 is estimated to be a negative zero point one tenth percent -0.1% in world speculation, at this time. The  Federal Reserve Board announced their anticipated Interest Rate increases in December 2016. This was done without current, appropriate data to support the FED's outlook of the USA, under its new administration. The FED's agenda has been adverse to the TRUMP Administration efforts, since Trump took office in 2017. The preliminary adverse results of the FED's actions are showing in USA Retail Sales, Auto Sales and Real Estate, all of which are at Zero or less for 2017 in comparison to 2016 and year to date for 2017.

6-2-2017: WORLD CLIMATE CONTROL: The TRUMP administration position is clear. The USA is over 12 years ahead in decreasing Carbon and other omissions into the Climate than all or almost all other Country(s). To be part of an accord that would limit America's production future would be a giant step backwards.Other World Country(s) that have Ignored The Climate Issues for the last 20 years to Date. America did not. America has already reached the target level of the accord that is set for 2030. Participation would severely limit the future of a rebirth of American Business and Jobs that have been eroded in the last 20 years by the same countries. Another words, the Banner of Climate has been an issue, as detailed, since the mid 1990's by the then Vice President Al Gore and America has done something about it. It appears the rest of the World has not. America needs to move forward again and continue to be a leader in Climate Control as we re-establish American Business..

5-18-2017: US FED AGENDA:
appears to be prioritizing the prior administrations agenda from 2008-2016 over the current administrations goals for America. The FED's basis for its decision making process ignores the results of their past actions. For example Retail Sales at just above zero "0.2%" average for 2017, which in all probability is a result of a negatively impacted American consumer purchasing power from the prior administration 2008-2016. Instead the FED focuses on the Unemployment Insurance Benefit Rate, the "U3" decreasing. Yet about 1.5 million workers from 2008 have not re-entered the employment ranks. When your benefits expire you are not counted on the U3 but are still unemployed.


4-29-2017: How can Trumps Tax Plan:
work to help America rebound from a failing economy that began 9 years ago with the Mortgage Crises. In all probability, it could help America kick start "Make America Great Again" from the corporate perspective. More investment in American businesses resulting in jobs and growth. This is a good long term idea if the large corporations actually do reinvest in America.

4-6-2017: China vs. USA Currency Valuation: China indicates that its currency the Yuan may now, as of today's date, be more valuable than the USA Dollar. Yet Analysts in July 2016 indicated that the reality was years down the road because of the China Government Stimulus Plan. Has the China Government Stimulus Plan of 7-2016 been reimbursed? If not, how can one calculate current results. This assertion is suspect of currency manipulation on a international level.

3-16-2017: USA FED: raises the Prime Lending Rate to 4.0%. Next Rate Hike may be as early as May 3, 2017. USA National Real Estate Economy is flat and stumbling and in the negative Sales category for January and February 2017 and over the last 14 months primarily due to FED interest rate increases.

3-10-2017: The 1 through 10 GDP Countries: are in order, China, USA, India, Japan, Germany, USSR, Brazil, Indonesia, UK, France. The Countries contribute between 61.21% and 67.44% of the Worlds wealth. Countries ranking 11 through 20 are, Mexico, Italy, Korea,Saudia Arabia, Spain, Canada,Turkey, Islam Republic Iran, Australia, Thailand, ppp 14.29% of the Worlds wealth.


2-24-2017: Home Sales
in the USA were up for January 2017, +3.3% over January 2016. The Median Price for a USA Home is $228,000. This is coming off a -6.0% decrease in the last quarter of 2016.

2-7-2017: USA
Real Estate growth for the October, November and December measured -6.0%. In all probability due to interest rate hikes by Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and the Prime Lending Rate increase by the Federal Reserve Board on December 14, 2016.

1-20-2017: USA  Inauguration of Donald Trump, President.

1-10-2017: The Federal Reserve Board: despite indications going back as far as July 2016, raises Interest Rates across the USA. The Real Estate Market had already slowed in the last quarter of 2016. The Stock Market rallied through the Hike based on Wall Streets confidence of the Trump Stimulus Plan. The FED chose to ignore the Election and new direction of the American economy and the wishes of the American people.

 JUST THE FACTS

WALL STREET 30 Day Losses News: As of Mid January 2016 the Stock market indicates losses over of 1 Trillion 350 Billion US Dollars of investors money. This is the result of  a FED .25% increase in the Prime Lending Rate, devaluation of the China Yuan (Dollar) and the Euro Central Bank lowering their lending rate.
Analyst and experts say the Global investment economy is a risky investment and the outlook for 2016 is unfavorable. Crude Oil is down to under $30 Dollars a barrel, which is good for the consumer, but negatively impacts the hedge fund on oil futures held by US Banks.

Your US Investment News: 

1-04-2016: US Financial Markets Open with the worst New Year start since 2001.
If this market continues throughout January 2016 it is likely the market may not improve in 2016.

Your Euro Investment News: 

12-3 2015: The Euro Central Bank devalues the US Dollar. Your Euro Investment return is spiraling downward and that will probably begin to show on your next quarterly investment statement.

Your China Investment News: 
12-4-2015: In China will likely show a Principal reduction for each US $1.00 to .98 cents. Generally interest and dividends are reduced the same or more.

As of 12/16/2015: US Federal Reserve Bank raises interest rates. The Prime Rate increased from 3.25% to 3.50%. Stock Market dives on 12/18/2015. All other interest rates are expected to begin to increase before 2015 year end.  

As of 12/3/2015: The Euro Dollar is Adjusted that results in Lowering the value of the US Dollar against the Euro Dollar.

The Result is: Your US $1.00 Investment is worth .92 cents today 12/4/2015 on the Euro Market.
Expect to see any losses of Principal on any Euro Dollar Investments in the First Quarter of 2016, March.
As of 11/30/2015: The Euro Central Bank is in the process of reducing Interest Rates to 0%, or less. As of 08/11/2015: Number 1 China, Devalues the Yuan (China's Dollar) 1.9%.
Euro Analysts indicate other Devaluation(s) may occur in 2016.

5-1-2016: In the US the Federal Reserve Board is unclear on why the US inflation rate is to low and not responding. 
Speculation and History: When you have decreasing nationwide productivity, a lowering of overall wages with the Actual Unemployment almost double, or more, the U3 Unemployment Insurance 12 month Benefit Period Rate, these features can result in a low inflation rate. Re: U3 Unemployment Rate does not count individuals who have  exceeded the U3 12 month benefit period, even though they are still unemployed.
