• New Year’s Sale! Get A Free Month Of Hedgeye

    New Year's Resolution? Leave Wall Street in the dust. Get a free month of any Hedgeye investing product and win this year.

Toxic levels of consumer confidence on Main Street remain. This is happening despite Wall Street's call to arms that we should "drill, drill, drill", bring down oil prices, and solve all problems inflation related in one fell swoop.

The US$ has recovered alongside the US stock market this month. Gas pump prices have fallen alongside oil's decline. But every week the ABC/Washington Post Consumer Confidence reading shows no dice. No change.

At a -50 weekly reading, all time lows remain reality in Main Street confidence. Two Americas remain as a result. Get used to Obama's attack dog Democrats reminding Wall Street of the same.
