Wall Street: STOCK MARKET
The Stock Market goes wild and the Euro follows. High Price to Earning Ratio's are currently about 20 to 25 Times the Company Earnings. Years ago a 8 to 12 Times PE was considered High. The bottom line is, Ride the Wave, there is no equity or security for your investment.
THE GLOBAL MARKET
The Global market rebounds with the influence of Wall Street. Is there any instant value in the Global Market? Probably not it is just reacting to Wall Streets lead.
FED Chair Janet Yellen a Democratic Appointee
of the past Administration buys off on a disastrous USA First Quarter of 0.7% Growth.
FED did not raise rates at May meeting as they look forward to June 2017.
The FED Chief chose to ignore the Interest Rate increases by the FED in December 2016 and March 2017 and increases to mortgage rates from August 2016 fueling the low 0.7% growth rate for the USA.
The end result of the USA economy is also shown as lack of consumer confidence in Retail Sales ease below Zero, -0.2% with major retail stores closing some of their stores in 2017. Retail Sales in America is not only crucial to America but also Globally as over 70,000 USA Companies have moved over seas since the mid 1990's.
Real Estate growth of Home Sales for the First Quarter is barely above Zero at a 1.33% Average.
This result has a direct influence on the American Family and America's overall purchasing power.
History proves that when interest rates are moving up the thrust of the USA Consumers wait and do not buy.
Americans Personal Debt is Up 129% that includes Mortgages, Car Loans and Credit Card debt. More interest rates more debt may be a secondary reason.
Now that America is crashing from the FED moves in the last 9 months the FED shifts there focus to the Unemployment Insurance Rate that eased down to 4.5% or to 7 Million 135 Thousand 256 Hundred American workers in April. The US Bureau of Labor Statistics "Actual Unemployment Rate" is 9.4% as of January 2017 or 14 Million 141 Thousand 460 Hundred American workers out of work today.
This is again being totally ignored by the FED.
The FED in the last 8 years has increased their debt from -800 Billion to a incredible -4 Trillion 500 Billion. The FED is planing to Write Down some of that debt. The FED's attitude is let's just erase it, now that the money is spent. Spent for what?
A FUTURE FINANCIAL OUTLOOK
The USA Economy is depressed except for the wealthy who have substantial cash to buy the impact of the USA Depression and add American's loss to the wealthy plus column.
Unlike the stock market, real estate, under a normal set of circumstances takes a year or period of years to appreciate to a future value that can be used in exchange for purchasing power.
At the retail level, it appears there is no room for lowering prices and there is no demand for retail sales to develop at a normal growth rate for even the major retailers.
There is not enough wealth to support sales growth in America. The law of large numbers indicates a small amount of wealth spread among a large amount of people (153 million, USA work force) can result in more leveraged purchasing power for the Country. Americans need purchasing power to move the economy forward.
Adverse government action stifles future American growth.
REAL ESTATE FUTURES
Prime Lending Rates:
Higher interest rates is not the answer. Rates need to decrease under 4% to bring the market back to a growth level anytime soon. A possible scenario that may work would be back up to the growth level of rates 3.5% as they were in mid 2016 and then look at easing them up annually at .25% if necessary, to maintain a healthy level of growth in the real estate market.

USA HOME BUYER AND SELLERS
The overshadowing effect of the FED in comparison to the TRUMP USA recovery plans is slowing any potential rebound that could be started this year.
TRUMP and the FED Chair Janet Yellen have two different points of view. The FED Chair Yellen indicates the FED is independent of America political tone.
This is true to some degree. But also we need to keep in mind that the Federal Reserve Bank is the Central Bank of the USA.
Let's also look at the fact that the Central Bank is out of control with it's lending, spending and accounts receivable.
Simply put, basically the FED's negative balance has increased -3.4 Trillion Dollars since 2007. Today it is -4.5 Trillion dollars and should be around -1.1 Trillion approximately the US budget for the year.
Probably the best FED Chairman the USA has ever seen is Alan Greenspan who presided as the FED Chair for 19 years. 1987-2006
He adjusted America's focus in the Ronald Reagan, George Bush, William Clinton, Geaorge W. Bush Administrations. In each of these Admins he adjusted the FED's focus to America's future based on the current administrations goals.
Greenspan had Main Street America, USA Housing and Wall Street in the forefront. After Greenspan left office in 2006
Main Street America was abandoned for Wall Street and Global Market influences to date.
The Greenspan economies are the best long term economy the USA has seen. Greenspan's two successors have not been successful in strengthening the USA economy to date. This is also a role of the Federal Reserve Board Chair and Governors.

The FED and its resources are manipulating the numbers, utilizing interest rates primarily that they did use as a control during the proceeding socialist focused administration from 2009-2016.
This is keeping Americans in the tight squeeze they are in and controls basically middle income or working Americans from participating in a USA Capitalistic economy.
Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are the two largest Mortgage Banks in the USA. Both are still under the US Government Conservator ship.
The result is, that they are not in really moving with the market. They are moving under the control of the Government.
