It appears that many investors are commemorating the fourth anniversary of the bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers by telling themselves that any Lehman-like danger has passed, and staging a huge rally in its honor, says Mark Hulbert. Actually, he quips, the real impetus was that the Fed basically concluded that the economy is in such horrible shape that it needs even more life support. This all goes to show how inscrutable — and, therefore, ultimately unpredictable — the markets can be. 1 comment!

15% nuclear option backed

Category : World News

As the government sounds out the public about Japan’s nuclear options, the intermediate option of reducing the nation’s dependence on atomic energy to 15 percent by 2030 is winning favor.
If the government’s policy to “basically” limit the service life of reactors to 40 years is strictly adhered to, as stated recently by Shunichi Tanaka, the candidate to head the new nuclear regulatory authority, their number will fall to 20 from 50 by 2030.

Europe Elections, Jobless Claims in Focus for Coming Week

Category : Stocks

NEW YORK (TheStreet) — The French presidential election will get plenty of digital ink on Sunday, but it may not have much of an impact on U.S. markets in the coming week because Wall Street likely has priced in the expected victory of Francois Hollande over Nicolas Sarkozy.

What’s more likely to roil equities is the drama at the polls in Greece, where the population is frustrated with both the socialist and conservative parties.

“That’s why the Greek election is more important for the market, because what you may see is a template in Greece of citizenry just basically saying we don’t want this austerity,” said Quincy Krosby, Prudential Financial market strategist.
