Markets and Stocks

Subcategories from this category: International Markets

The United States economy grew faster than previously thought in the second quarter of 2014, the Commerce Department said on Thursday, August 28, 2014. The latest numbers confirm the signs of a sustainable growth and the continued positive outlook of the US economy. Reacting to the news, President Obama expressed his satisfaction and said that “companies are investing, consumers are spending...There are reasons to feel good about the direction that we are headed"

The growth was fueled by several factors including manufacturing, increased investment by businesses, and foreign trade.

b2ap3_thumbnail_US_AfricaSummit_Aug2-6-2014.jpegThe end of an era is here: after spending the last two decades trying to expand their businesses  and make money in BRIC nations (Brazil, Russia, India, and China),  the World, rather the American, international investors appear to have shifted their focus: the motto may now be "It is Africa Stupid!".   In fact, Africa is where the money is to be made. The point was hightlighted during the US-Africa Leaders Summit in Washington. The Summit, attended by 50 African heads of states, was unprecedented: in its attendance, in setting a new tone for US-Africa relations and its expectations.

President Obama put it clearly in his speech on Tuesday, August 5, 2014:"I want Africans buying more American products. I want Americans buying more African products."

Why, this change after two decades of absence?

FED Chairwoman Yellen has said it and the lead indicators confirm it: the US Economy and the Financial Markets are finally back and solidifying. In June 2014, the US Economy has added, according to the government, 288,000 jobs. This means that, since the beginning of the year, that is in the first 6 months of 2014,  the US Economy has added more than 1.4 million. And that uptake in jobs is by far the strongest  growth in the last decade. 

Unemployment has amazingly stayed at 6.1% over the last few months, the levels that would satisfy even the most pessimistic economists: 6.1% has long been considered the threshold for  the US Economy to be considered full employment.

The consensus is there: the US Economy is doing better, with a but... What is missing is the agreement on what that "but" is. Even Yellen, the FED Chairwoman, though confident in the fact that the lead economic indicators are pointing to a growing and solidifying US Economy and the Financial Markets,  remains cautious. In fact, since the beginning of the year, that is in the first 7 months of 2014,  the US Economy has added more than 1.6 million. The uptake in jobs is by far the strongest growth in the last decade. In the last week of July 2014, jobless claims  fell by 14,000 to a seasonally-adjusted 289,000.  July was the sixth consecutive month that the U.S. Economy added 200,000 or more jobs, although the unemployment rate edged up in July to 6.2%  from 6.1%, due most likely to more workers joining the labor force.

In the previous months, unemployment had amazingly stayed at 6.1%, considered the threshold for  the US Economy to be considered full employment.

AroniSmartInvest™ In Action has been pointing and continue to confirm signs of markets recovery and strengthening, despite investors' hesitation
