Payam Pedram of Ascendant Asset Advisors has released his third quarter market sentiment report in his quarterly prospectus. Below is summary of his recommendations for the third quarter of 2012.

"As the uncertainty in the market grows, market participants shift their investments into riskier assets to capture potential market rallies due this the summer." said Payam Pedram

·         The data will continue to be weak and unemployment will continue to stay above 8 percent.

·         The Euro zone crisis will continue, in our opinion Euro currency will trade in par with US Dollar by end of the year. The Euro will collapse and its demise will create trading opportunities for smart investors.

·        The interest rate will start to rally slowly and change the dynamics of investments. Consider the time when treasuries will pay 4%, they will compete directly with investments in stocks.

·        The Federal reserve will not provide additional easing. They will keep the language the same but no additional easing, they are out of tools and tricks.

·         Corporate earning will suffer into the 3rd and 4th quarter of 2012. Repatriation of the profit from Euro zone will no longer be a profit center; it will actually be a loss leader in many multinational corporations.

The factors discussed above along with the uncertain news coming from Middle East provides a very challenging investment horizon.
