The New York Stock Exchange most likely will publish this holiday-shortened week its data on securities market credit, which means I should soon be able to bring up-to-date the levels of my Margin Debt Directional Indicator, or MDDI, and my Securities Market Credit Risk Rank, or SMC Risk Rank, as well as the associated comparison of the historical monthly levels of NYSE margin debt and the SPDR S&P 500 ETF (SPY). The article based on these data will be published at either J.J.’s Risky Business or Seeking Alpha.
Meanwhile, Seeking Alpha will publish at least the first of the three data-intensive pieces about U.S. Federal Reserve policy to which I referred in the Risky Business Monitor last week.
Over the weekend, I briefly covered Russian President Vladimir Putin’s wide-ranging interview with the state-owned Tass news agency in a story titled “Russia Will Not Rebuild Iron Curtain In Wake Of Economic Sanctions Over Ukraine: Vladimir Putin” at the International Business Times Sunday. Given his country’s petroeconomy, he had plenty to say about the effects of those sanctions imposed by the European Union and the U.S., as well as the status of his nation’s energy sector.
Shameless Self-Promotion! If you like my work, then you can follow me as J.J. McGrath at Google+ and Seeking Alpha, as JJMcGrath at StockTwits and @JJMcGrath3000 at Twitter. If you do not like my work, then you can follow me at all those places, anyway.
