Dec 01 2016 - UBS

They're just pushing higher and higher and nobody has the conviction to stand before the freight train. At some point it will turn around, either before or after the Fed. I would argue that the level of yields we're getting into now are more consistent with where they should have been.feedback

It's just gotten so low in the gutter as can be imagined. If other people are seeing this the way I am, it's depressing. Maybe I'm a little more bummed out than I might normally be just because of the tone of the campaign.feedback

...The new orders and production components were both between 51 and 52, also the worst results since early 2010. The employment figure slipped by less than a point to 50.7. The text of the report notes that most comments from respondents point to a slowing in business, though none of the individual comments that were included in the report seem consistent with much more than a summer lull.feedback
