February 3rd, 2008
It is premature for US markets to use rate cuts, Microsoft-Yahoo merger, ExxonMobil to bottom fishing for financial, construction stocks. This housing price slump will continue into summer, despite rate cuts. Most mega merger at peak of asset bubbles facing burst and lead to huge loss, repeat 2000 IT bubble burst, Look at CSCO, Citi, AOL endless lists. US dollar strength is supported by rising oil, commodities prices and soaring inflation, eventual rate hike, EURO rate cuts due to slowdown, supporting near term dollar weakness. Global construction demand will be drag by US housing price slump resulted economic recession and global stock market decline resulted housing bubble bursts in China credit tightening, India, UK. China recent snow damage will recover easily. www.osawh.com/fund2008.htm

September 24th, 2007
It does not decision makeing by groups or single person, if we are using the wrong inflation models. What we needed is a sound inflation model which predict and forecst the future inflation. Our core inflation rate( exculde food , energy) set at 2 % are misleading the economy it lagged 6 month behind the real economy. That is why Greenspan over optimistics about the infaltion, ignoring hosuing, equitities, comodities price bubble ,raise rate 17 time still chasing the inflation, excessive rate cuts resulted hosuing and stock markets bubble burst since 1987 I presented my asset based inflation model this Princeton Econometric peoferssor and Nobel Economic prize winner Engle June this year on Peking University conference details can be found on www.osawh.com/centmaf.html

Market beat Turbulence ahead Dr. Warren Hunag

September 24th, 2007
I warned on Wall Street Journal Blogs before market speculation on Fed rate cut, that any rate cut will repeat 1998 and 1989 , just delay the already serious housing bubble burst, will be followed by deeper recession. Fed 50 point cut on top of Dow Jones stock index near its peak, oil, commodities prices at its all time high this inflationary pressure situation is much worse than 1998, 1989, with 7 trillion dollar housing price gain wealth speculating in housing and stock market, it will be very tough for Fed to cool it off, it will blow the bubble bigger, as coastal area high end housing prices soared 40- 150 % in July. even Greenspan agree that this house bubble is tough for any central banks to manage, China raise 5 time rates, 7 times bank deposit ratio, still fail to contain the soaring housing and  stock price bubble. both Benanke and market are facing turbulent period ahead. details can be found onwww.osawh.com/centmaf.html Comment by Warren Huang  - September 24, 2007 at 11:16 am

Fed ’s rate cut is little to early and too much, If stock , commodity prices made 20 % correction, housing prices plunge another 15 %, economic cool off a bit,will be much safer, have more room and time for expansionary policy. we are already at its peak stock index, housinng , energy, feedgrain, metal prices all at all time high, even money supply growth is doubled from year ago ( 3.5 % to 6.8 % in Aug. we are very much in 1998 LTCM bail out, went inot 1999-2000 bubble burst. details can be found www.osawh.com/centmaf.html

Crude Surges Over $74

barrels    Roshanak Taghavi reports on today’s action in the energy markets: Crude-oil futures rose above $74 a barrel Friday on heightened concerns that a new tropical storm could be developing in the Atlantic Ocean and an upsurge in U.S. equities. The front-month October light, sweet crude contract on the New York Mercantile Exchange was up 86 cents, or 1.2%, at $74.22 a barrel. October Brent crude on the ICE futures exchange was up 93 cents at $72.83 a barrel. Traders were paying extra attention Friday to four low pressure systems that have developed in the Atlantic basin, which could develop into a strong storm or hurricane. Atlantic hurricanes have the potential to enter the U.S. Gulf of Mexico and wreak havoc with energy installations there. Crude oil and gasoline futures have been extremely volatile since Wednesday, when the U.S. Department of Energy reported gasoline inventories fell by a larger-than-expected 3.6 million barrels in the week ended Aug. 24. U.S. gasoline stocks now cover just 20 days of demand, the lowest level on record, according to the DOE’s Energy Information Administration. Expectations that gasoline supplies will tighten even more during the U.S. Labor Day holiday, when many Americans hit the road to attend celebrations and take vacations, has also added to traders’ concerns. “We are maintaining a view that any strength in the crude oil or heating oil going forward will be driven almost entirely by a tight gasoline market,” said Jim Ritterbusch of Ritterbusch and Associates in Galena, Ill. in a research note. “We are still not ruling out a strong expiration today as the combination of near record low gasoline supply cover and a thin holiday trade could provide a recipe for a volatile session as today’s trade proceeds.” Nymex September reformulated-gasoline blendstock was up 1.03 cents, or 0.5%, at $2.0904 a gallon. September heating oil was up 2.46 cents, or 1.2%, at $2.0530 a gallon.

Inflation and Credit crisis impact on bank stocks, gold price Dr. Warren Huang

June 18th, 2008

Comment by Warren Huang -Wall Street Journal Market Beat June 17, 2:30 pm

I warned on this blog that investment banking , regional banks and finance, housing industries facing continued  soaring unsold house inventory,  foreclosure, credit default, credit crisis, unemployment share  prices facing 50- 70 % correction, will led to housing price slump continue into summer 2008, drag economics into recession, despite aggressive rate cuts, drag dollar lower,and soaring oil, commodities prices facing inflationary recession. Despite GS excellent performances , it is tough to fight the turbulent, uncertainties market ahead. Walmart May sale increase  are benefited by rebate check, can not be sustainable after July , and profit margin are squeezed by heavy discount, That is why Walmart postponed its store opening investment., It share price all ready peaking out. Economic stimulus will continue drive up consumers spending for food, oil, consumer products to July, supporting record oil, commodities prices and inflation. Gold price will be pushed up by oil, price, inflation and weak dollar to retest 990. details on www.osawh.com/mortdefa.htm  www.osawh.com/test.html www.osawh.com/fund2008.html www.osawh.com/commody.html
