Woodside, CA (PRWEB) December 01, 2011
Fisher Investments launched a new blog, Global Market Perspective, offering a look at what’s going on outside the US. The blog covers economic and market-related events, including geopolitical developments and international commerce, as well as interesting topics that can help investors learn about global capital markets.
A recent article entitled, "Fisher Investments Research Uncovers Four Things You Might Have Missed," details several trends often overlooked in the global economy. Specifically, the article highlights four major points:
- Japan’s economy is enjoying a post-earthquake rebound, with bank lending, machine tool orders and money supply up, while bankruptcies have fallen.
- Global trade is getting freer. Countries have begun embracing free trade as a way to encourage economic growth.
- US corporate earnings are at all-time highs and still growing. To boot, revenues are also near all-time highs.
- Chinese lending jumped significantly in October, well ahead of forecasts. Loan growth had cooled in recent months, but the recent jump may be a precursor to additional lending in 2012 as loan quotas reset.
The Global Perspective Blog, written by the same staff that contributes to MarketMinder.com, is also supported by Fisher Investments’ in-house research team. The research team conducts in-depth analysis on sectors, regions and specific securities, supporting the firm’s Investment Policy Committee in its strategic decision making.
