The King Report
Our Market Strategist, Bill King, has authored “The King Report” for over 18 years. It is an independent view on global, political, financial, and economic factors that influence world markets.
As author of the firm’s daily market commentary, Bill’s candid observations and forecast on the economic, financial, and political forces that are impacting the markets have been extremely accurate. However, this report is not the usual garden variety tripe that is issued by the financial media and Wall Street. Bill, in plain language, refutes conventional rant about Wall Street activity and articulates the real factors and impetuses that drive market activity. The inside world of Wall Street is far different than what is disseminated to the masses. Wall Street insiders seldom adorn their own portfolios or trading accounts with 'recommended list' issues.
The King Report features include –
- Concise session summary
- Short-term investment strategy
- Macro strategy
- Technical trading comments
- Sector-specific comments
- Political color and commentary
- Distribution takes place after midnight via email
The King Report is now a daily “must read” and discussed at morning meetings by some of the largest investment institutions throughout the US and Europe. Bill and his staff maintain daily contact with major US financial institutions, and various financial/economic professionals to gather market information, while maintaining primary source anonymity.
One of our readers recently provided this feedback:
“It is a quick read covering a wide variety of sources from a trader’s perspective. Mr. King seems to delight in poking holes in conventional wisdom, skewering Pollyanna’s and bringing a skeptical point of view to widely accepted explanations for the market’s ups and downs. The links to full stories make it easy to read more on a particular subject if I’m interested. I also enjoy the subtle sarcasm.”

Sample King Report
Thursday September 19, 2013 – Issue 4596 "Independent View of the News"
Due to an economy that is clearly faltering, the Fed decided to NOT taper QE.
In its Statement of Economic Projections (SEP), the Fed downgraded its economic outlook. The Fed reduced its GDP estimate to 2.0%-2.3% from 2.3-2.6% . Street GDP estimates are sub 2%.
Ben sees economic headwinds prevailing through 2016. There is no other spin. The US economy is teetering; consumers are still suffering; so the Fed will maintain QE even though it is ineffective.
The Fed’s thinking is: QE is ineffective but the economy would be worse without it.
The Fed has explicitly indicated that even an insignificant $10B to $15B of tapering could torpedo the economy. The Fed will tolerate bubbles but not an economic contraction because of the dreaded debt deflation that will inevitably occur at some point.
Ben and his academic tools at the Fed are trying, again, to lower long-term rates in yet another attempt to stimulate housing and borrowing. But who hasn’t refinanced at much lower rates.
