Weekly Market Comment

This Week:
Complacency and the Fat Left Tail
Don’t be lulled into complacency by thinking that severely hostile market conditions have to resolve into immediate market losses. That’s not the way these environments work, and they never have. Rather, the “unpleasant skew” of present conditions actually means that investors should expect a greater tendency toward small market gains than market conditions might otherwise lead them to expect, punctuated - with no warning at all - by wicked vertical losses that wipe out weeks or months of market gains in handful of sessions. Every market crash in history has been associated with essentially the same skewed distribution. It’s the positive “mode” that creates complacency, it’s the negative average return that drives cumulative losses, and it’s the fat left tail that strikes out of nowhere

When Market Trends Break,
Even Borderline Data is Recessionary

When stock market action deteriorates and broad economic data is weakening even moderately, the risks of a recession actually jump considerably. The conditional probability of a recession prior to the market falling below its 12-month moving average was just 5-10 percent. It has now jumped to between 60 and 75 percent. This is roughly 6 or 7 times the odds that economists are allowing for a recession.

Mutual Fund Brokerage Fees and Trading Costs
How much do mutual funds pay in commissions and trading costs? This is a question that the mutual fund industry seems reluctant to answer. In an industry already complicated by fees - sales loads, soft dollars, trailing fees, 12b-1 marketing fees - asking mutual funds to prominently disclose trading costs is unpopular among fund companies. We've decided to take the lead anyway. It's the right thing to do.
