  • "Recent" is of course all recent stories sorted by the time they were added, the last items added are shown first.
  • "Upcoming" are stories that will be added to "Recent" after a short time period. (Currently 30 minutes)
  • If you see a page take a while to load, that means we're updating the database with fresh stories. You don't have to wait, you can just browse on.
  • This site doesn't rely on user contributions for its stories, like DIGG etc. All stories here are fetched automatically from RSS feeds.
  • By the way this site is mostly about "Music News", but I guess you already figured that out. There's a few non music things but not too many.
  • In order to keep the database somewhat under control all older stories will be deleted once a week, probably all stories older than one or two weeks or so, maybe a month, we'll see. Nobody cares about yesterday's news anyway I reckon.

Empire Fed Spikes To 5-Year Highs; Employment Plunges To Worst Since Dec 2013
submitted by mephisto 6 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
Following last month's biggest plunge in 2 years to 4-month lows, it is likely no surprise that the soft-survey-based Empire Fed index exploded to 27.5 (smashing 15.71 expectations) to its highest since October 2009. Of course - away from the headline exuberance, employment plunged to its lowest since 2013, the average workweek slipped, capex expectations plunged, and new orders barely rose (while
 
Ukraine President's Days Numbered After Broad Accusations Of "Betraying National Interests"
submitted by mephisto 6 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
As we summarized late on Friday, while Europe has been banging the populist drums over ever-escalating Russian sanctions, it quietly and without much fanfare folded in the one place where Russia could have been truly hurt, the Free Trade (DFCTA) agreement between Ukraine and the EU. But while Europe would have loved for nobody to notice, some did, and not just on these pages: far more importantly,
 
This Is What Happens When The 'Unrigged' Market Breaks
submitted by mephisto 6 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
It appears Rule 575 is having an impact today. Quietly this morning, CBOE traders were told at 1027ET that the S&P 500 index was "currently unavailable for trading." As the following chart shows, this halted a drop in the market and instantly enabled a levitation to near the day's highs. Unrigged? This happens... Shit's broke..... pic.twitter.com/audYGq6AZ0— Market Plunger (@Market

What It Looks Like When The Second Auto Subprime Bubble Pops
submitted by mephisto 6 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
A month ago, when we commented on the most recent surge in US manufacturing production, when it jumped by 0.7% offsetting a tumble in utilities and mining output and leading to a 0.4% jump in overall Industrial Production (since revised to only 0.2%), we observed that this was entirely due to the second, and more nuanced, coming of the cash for clunkers bubble, as the explosion in subprime loans p

US Industrial Production Follows China; Misses With Biggest Drop Since Jan
submitted by mephisto 6 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
But but but... the survey all said record highs... Yet another piece of hard data hits the tape and disappoints. While Fed surveys point to an exuberant economy, Industrial Production fell 0.1% in August (missing +0.28% expectations) for its worst print since January's "weather"-related plunge. This comes on the heels of Chinese Industrial Production at its worst in 6 years... perhaps explaining w

submitted by mephisto 6 days ago (via zerohedge.com)
With the S&P 500 hitting fresh record highs day after day (apart from last week), everything must be great, right? Wrong! As we have noted previously, the leadership in this market is becoming more and more narrowly focused as stunningly 47% of Nasdaq Composite stocks are down at least 20% from their highs with the average stock in the index in a bear market (down 24%). The same is true for th
