When short sellers are willing to put their necks on the line, investors should think twice before sharpening their axes.
It pays to understand exactly how heavily a stock has been sold short.

Secular stagnation doesn’t have to be real for it to matter for financial markets.
Investors’ worries about secular stagnation may be pushing them into highflying stocks and other speculative assets.

After Friday’s jobs report, it’s clear the Federal Reserve will wait until after June to raise rates. But for how long?

The way Sears Holdings keeps scissoring off assets, maybe it should rename itself Shears.
Sears’s REIT deal will provide the company with much needed cash, but its ability to survive as a retailer depends on it selling more than its assets.

Forces outside the U.S. are keeping inflation low, complicating the Fed’s decision on raising rates.

U.S. bond investors might want take a cue from the protester who tossed confetti toward European Central Bank President Mario Draghi Wednesday, but in their case it would be an act of celebration.

The dollar’s strength has put a chill on prices. It will take a while for them to thaw out.
The dollar’s recent strength will weigh on import prices for months to come, potentially staying the Fed’s hand on rates.

The gulf between what the Federal Reserve thinks it will do with interest rates and what the credit market is implying will happen might not be as wide as it seems. Even so, investors could find themselves on shaky ground.
The bond market may not be as out step with the Federal Reserve as it seems to be, but there is still reason to worry.

The disparity between strong jobs data and other economic indicators mean investors could be wrong-footed on the timing of Fed rate increases.
