“Mike O’Rourke of JonesTrading wales on the various Fed Heads and the Bank of Japan for having created a ridiculous situation where the entire market is just obsessed with every utterance from central bank chiefs, sucking away the oxygen from the real issues that should actually be driving markets.
He writes in this evening’s note that the events of the last two days are damning:
Earlier this month we highlighted comments Chairman Bernanke made a decade ago … “I worry about the effects on the long-run stability and efficiency of our financial system if the Fed attempts to substitute its judgments for those of the market. Such a regime would only increase the unhealthy tendency of investors to pay more attention to rumors about policymakers’ attitudes than to the economic fundamentals that by rights should determine the allocation of capital.” ….”Comments »

Sales at stores open at least a year combined with online sales fell 15 percent. The decline was most pronounced at the Hollister chain, the company’s largest. But Abercrombie lost business under all its banners, even in its direct-to-consumer operations, which include e-commerce.

“A colliding truck may have triggered the collapse on Thursday of part of a four-lane freeway bridge that sent vehicles and drivers tumbling into a frigid river in Washington state, officials said.
A U.S. National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigation into what led part of the Interstate 5 bridge to fall into the Skagit River 55 miles (90km) north of Seattle was expected to continue on Friday.
Two of the three people rescued from the river were hospitalized with hypothermia, but no one died, officials said.
The freeway is a principal corridor for vehicles between Seattle and Vancouver, Canada, and Washington state Governor Jay Inslee said he expected major traffic delays in the region.
State Patrol Chief John R. Batiste said a semi-truck driven southbound struck the bridge just before part of it collapsed. The bridge has metal overhead beams.
“The size of the load he was carrying appeared to create a problem, causing him to strike the bridge,” Batiste said. He said investigators were talking to the driver and inspecting the truck….”Comments »
