It was an interesting week. Before you inquire of yourself "what did I miss?" or, of me, "what the heck was he trading?" let me set the record straight – I wasn't necessarily referring to the markets.
Sure, we had a number of esteemed members of the FOMC attempting to confuse the markets in their all too frequent public speeches but their efforts at transparency have become commoditized dribble. There was a vacuum of news on the economic front except for industrial production and CPI, both a little weaker than expected but not enough for anyone to change their view on when the Fed will hike. And then there was the third and final presidential debate where the only revelation was that if Alec Baldwin were to run as Donald Trump, he would be the most likable candidate.
As to markets, both here and abroad, they decided to move marginally higher this week in the absence of much news except for generally positive earnings results.
