Recessions and financial markets


For several months I have documented the economic slowdown we are witnessing right now. Please re-visit previous posts.

The relentless decline in all commodities from crude oil to lumber (see above chart) reflect the dangerous weakening of the economy. The reason commodities are declining is because demand for goods and services is weak and weakening. Not surprisingly Treasury bonds are doing well in this environment

The slumping commodities point to soft earnings and a volatile stock market.

You will encourage me to update this blog with my assessment of what is happening to the economy and financial markets by entering a subscription to The Peter Dag Portfolio.

Thanks for these smart ideas and tips about saving money. I have always known that in order to keep being wealthy, at an average amount, you have to learn to think critically. Just looking at the world would be enough. I think that everyone must decide on a way of saving money, whether it will be self-investing or loan-taking. Another beneficial thing would be to find out what do payday loans UK no credit check to an ordinary person. I hope to read the author’s opinion on the subject.
