Guys, if you're taking a long view of the markets and studying up on economic trends this weekend, you might want to take a look at Chris Puplava's latest market wrap for FSO.
Chris has put together an update on the credit markets, with some thoughts on US Treasuries and the direction of long-term interest rates.
There's also quite a bit of data and commentary on China's holdings of US govt. debt and the "state of the states" - US state finances. Plus, you'll get a look at the economic recovery, bank lending practices, market sentiment indicators, and more. Lots to look at here.
And if you've got time to check out Martin Goldberg's recent market wrap on the Emerging Markets (and ETF $EEM in particular), you'll find some worthwhile technical commentary there as well.
Have a good weekend, and if you're surfing our part of the blogosphere, check back in for some new updates & video posts. See you then.
