Weighing the Week Ahead – Jeff Miller
We have a reasonable volume of economic data, but few important reports. We are awaiting earnings season. The elephant in the room (sorry – I just couldn’t help myself) is the transition to the Trump Administration. Many are tired of hearing about this and thinking about the consequences, but that is not a sound plan for the intelligent investor. The punditry is far from exhausting this topic. They are making their own transition from Candidate Trump to President Trump. In the coming week, the punditry will be asking: What can investors really expect under Trump?

Macro Weekly: Is it Trump or not? – ABN AMRO
Business confidence indices strengthened across a remarkably wide range of countries in the latter part of 2016, indicating an upturn in global cyclical conditions. The crop of economic indicators released early in the New Year followed the recent trend with a remarkable further rise in confidence, already standing at multi-year highs in many cases. This leads to two obvious questions. First, where is this strength, which is more robust than was generally expected, suddenly coming from? And second, what does this imply for the real economy?

Weekly Market Summary – Fat Pitch
US equities are starting the year at new all-time highs. The rally is supported by healthy breadth and a relatively solid economic foundation. The biggest watchout is volatility, which has fallen to an extreme. A mean reversion in volatility is odds-on and that is normally unfavorable, short term, for equities.
