Spotted Group ThinkGood morning.
The stock market is forward looking.  The economy is not.  Right now, investors are looking for the Federal Reserve to stop raising interest rates as an all-clear sign to invest once again.  Given the lag time between when interest rates stop rising and when that’s reflected throughout the economy, over a year can potentially pass.
Case in point?  Right now, the data is showing a slowdown in US container freight.  While fewer physical goods are being shipped, a change in interest rate policy could lead to stocks taking off anyway.  It’s always been the case that stocks and the economy are intertwined… but that they don’t always move exactly the same way at the same time.
Traders should still expect some big down days in the market ahead, but should also be prepared to get more bullish overall when the Fed changes course… no matter what the stock market is doing.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

The Biggest Adjustment Of Inflation Ever
Let’s just start with inflation in services today because nearly two-thirds of consumer spending ends up in services, so this is the biggie.  And some extra-special stuff happened in the CPI for services in October.  What would come today was… [Read Here]

Something is going onGood morning.
More details are coming in about Zillow Group (Z) discontinuing its home-buying operation, which made the company considerable money back in the spring.  Apparently, the company was using an algorithm when determining how much to pay for homes, rather than having some humans with real estate experience take a look over the numbers to see if they made sense.
The company has started to sell off some of the thousands of homes it bought earlier in the year, in the hopes of creating a large-scale buy-and-flip business.  But by overpaying slightly to get in, the company set itself up to lose money on potentially all its later trades, even as it was able to show a paper profit from higher home values on earlier purchases.  At least the plug was pulled before we saw another housing market bubble pop.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

Give Him A HandGood morning.
Nothing ever moves in a straight line, particularly the stock market.  Despite the good news of a second Covid vaccine, manufacturing and delivery will take several months.  That’s likely why the market will be prone to some pullbacks.
However, traders are already starting to look ahead to 2021.  With the election over and a vaccine being delivered, there’s a strong possibility of growth in areas that still remain at reduced capacity.  Expect some bullish numbers out there — analysts usually overstate an existing trend, and going into the end of the year, things are looking up overall.

Now here’s the rest of the news:

According to Wikipedia.org, the Zeigarnik effect states that people remember uncompleted or interrupted tasks better than completed ones.  How do we apply this in persuasion and sales?

Keep them hanging in suspense that they will not stop until they know the ending.  TV and radio programs use this often to make the viewer stay tuned to the next episode.  Copywriters are also doing this to make people continue reading until the very end.  They use words such as:

  • “In a few moments, I’ll show you the right way to meet Mr. Right.”
  • “In due time, I’ll reveal the answer to this mysterious puzzle.”
  • “Soon, the truth will be revealed!”
  • “Ultimately, your prayers will be answered.”

These words will make your prospects “stick” with you until they’ve found the information or thing you’ve been keeping from them.  Here’s DarrenDaily with “A Ruthless Question.”

The power of the Zeigarnik effect comes from the desire of people to finish what has already been started… “Buy four cups of coffee … and fifth is free!”  🙂
