Whilst yesterday’s S&P Moneyflow was actually positive (+0.9%), the Index itself fell -0.4%, but by our broadest measure (quarterly) the Flow still is suggestive of lower Index levels. Earnings Season is off to a poor start; however with just 30 companies having reported (of some 2,000 expected), this may not yet be statistically significant: 80% having beaten estimates … but just 40% have improved their bottom lines over Q4 a year ago. At present, Silver, Copper and the Spoo are below their respective Neutral Zones for today; none of the other BEGOS Markets are above same, and volatility is pushing toward moderate. Cac volume for Oil is moving from February into March.

Too, we receive the Fed’s Tan Tome for January.
