    Investor confidence rose in Germany in February for the third month in a row, thanks to increased optimism about the evolution of the economy in the coming months. The Center for European Economic Research (ZEW) has reported that the investment confidence index has risen 9.4 points in February, to 71.2, compared to the previous month. The assessment of the current situation in Germany has worsened a little in February, 0.8 points, to -67.2, compared to January, so it has barely changed from six months ago and remains at a low level. Achim Wambach, the president of the ZEW, has indicated that the experts of the financial markets “look with optimism towards the future” and trust that the economy of Germany will grow again within six months. In addition, experts expect a notable recovery, especially in consumption and trade, which is why they also estimate an increase in inflation. The expectations of financial market experts in relation to the euro area also rose in February, by 11.3 points, to 69.6. In addition, the assessment of the current situation...
    By ELAINE KURTENBACH, AP Business Writer Shares were mixed Friday in Asia after markets closed nearly flat on Wall Street, though the S&P 500 and the Nasdaq composite still logged record highs. Most Asian markets were closed to mark the Lunar New Year. Investors remain cautiously optimistic about prospects for a new round of government aid as the economic recovery seemingly stalls. The latest U.S. government report on jobless claims reaffirmed that employment remains a weak spot in the economy, even as vaccine distribution ramps up in the hopes of eventually ending the pandemic. Japan's Nikkei 225 index lost 0.1% to 29,520.07 and the A&P/ASX 200 declined 0.6% to 6,806.70. Weak economic data are serving to “fog up the glass," Stephen Innes of Axi said in a commentary. “Global markets continue to trade mixed echoing that somber data view as participation remains muted, suggesting that investors need a bit more cajoling by more all clear economic smoke signals on the horizon before getting back in the saddle," Innes said. Although another day of choppy trading on Wall Street left the...

    VIDEO1:1401:14Investor Peter Boockvar: 'Sentiment is literally off the charts bullish'Trading Nation Investor Peter Boockvar warns bullishness is at dangerous levels. He's worried about investor optimism touching dot-com-bubble euphoria levels. "Sentiment has gotten as ebullient as we've seen in early 2000," the Bleakley Advisory Group chief investment officer told CNBC's "Trading Nation" on Monday. "It's all about that enthusiasm for stocks that should make somebody that is bullish call a time out." Boockvar cites the Citi Panic/Euphoria Model to support his case. It shows market euphoria, a contrary indicator, bouncing higher over the past couple of months. Zoom In IconArrows pointing outwards "Sentiment is literally off the charts bullish," said Boockvar, a CNBC contributor. "It typically means you are very, very vulnerable" to a market pullback. Stocks ended Monday mixed. The tech-heavy Nasdaq, Russell 2000 and Dow Transports hit all-time highs. The broader S&P 500 and Dow closed lower, but they're still near record highs. Boockvar believes an inflation scare is the most likely driver to spark trouble. "The 10-year [Treasury Note] yield is below 1%," he said. "If you get a...
    In early September, Palantir, a controversial tech company set to go public later that month, began its investor day webcast with a smoothly-edited scene of Alex Karp, the company's CEO, roller-skiing on a path in a mountain forest. Pumping his ski poles, Karp heads off-path up a hill until he stops before the camera. Looking directly into it, he launches into a monologue about Palantir's investor day, reflecting the optimism that earned the company an estimated $22 billion valuation in late September, despite never turning an annual profit in its seventeen-year-history. The mountain setting alone seems to explain why Karp chose downtown Denver for the company's new headquarters, which Palantir moved into in August.

    Investors’ outlook on investing took a steep tumble in May, according to a new poll. The Wells Fargo/Gallup Investor and Retirement Optimism Index released Friday recorded the largest quarterly drop in its history for the second quarter. The index, an indicator of U.S. investors’ outlook on investing, plummeted a record 134 points in May. Pollsters say that is the lowest level at +4 in nearly 7 years. The drop was a drastic change from the first quarter of 2020, which logged a 20-year high of +138. But the sour outlook doesn’t mean investors are shying away from the market.  Poll results show: About 6 in 10 investors say now is a good time to invest in the financial markets. Nearly seven in 10 investors say they are very (21%) or somewhat (48%) confident about investing in the stock market as a way to build wealth for retirement. This is unchanged from a year ago. 8% of investors say they see the current stock market environment as a time to decrease stock holdings to protect from additional losses.  48% of investors...
