    Asia Stocks Rise on Trade Hopes, China Data: Markets Wrap

    Shares in Tokyo, Hong Kong and Sydney climbed after the S&P 500 Index hit its highest since early December on Friday. Spurring the gains was optimism around the next round of U.S.-China trade talks at month-end and data from China that alleviated concerns of a continued deterioration in China’s slowing economy. Not all was sunny on Monday, however, with S&P 500 futures dipping and the yen strengthening after Bloomberg reported that the two sides are making little progress on the key issue of intellectual property protection.

    Asia keeps calm as China cools, Brexit news awaited

    Asian markets kept their nerve on Monday as data showed the Chinese economy slowed at the end of last year, underlining the urgent need for more stimulus as Beijing wrestles with the United States over trade. Investors are also waiting to hear British Prime Minister Theresa May's 'Plan B' for Brexit which is due to be presented to parliament later on Monday. "Policy makers appear to be weighing up the medium term risks of further debt growth against short term trends – hence the relatively modest stimulatory policy thus far," said Gerard Bung, a senior economist at NAB.

Buying enthusiasm has been spurred by renewed hopes for progress on resolving the trade standoff between the U.S. and China. Shares rose in Shanghai and Hong Kong early Monday despite news that China's economy grew at its lowest pace in three decades last year.

    [$$] Fee drag on retail fund performance comes into focus

    Jack Bogle, the founder of Vanguard who died on Wednesday, succeeded in his 89-year life in reducing the cost of investing for millions of ordinary savers. Large discrepancies still exist between the performance of actively managed mutual funds used mainly by retail investors and comparable institutional accounts, which are reserved for large investors such as pension schemes or sovereign wealth funds. Almost 90 per cent of actively managed mutual funds that benchmark against the S&P 500 underperformed the index after fees over the 10 years ending December 2017.

    A Positive Prognosis For Health Care ETFs

    Health care, the second-largest sector weight in the S&P 500 behind technology, was one of just three sectors to post positive returns last year. XLV and rival health care ETFs proved resilient last year as growth and momentum sectors fell out of favor with investors. While health care is widely viewed as a defensive sector, its 2019 earnings growth is expected to be solid.

    America's wealthy are 'in preservation mode' and don't think the market has hit a bottom: Survey

    The stock market has started 2019 strong with major indexes rebounding from correction levels, yet bearishness among wealthy investors has increased in January, according to a survey from E-Trade Financial. Americans with more than $1 million in a brokerage account they self-manage are less confident in the economy and potential for market gains this quarter than they were during the volatile fourth quarter. Although January has gotten off to a strong start for the stock market, there's not a lot of confidence the market bottom has been reached, according to a survey of wealthy investors conducted this month by E-Trade Financial ETFC and provided exclusively to CNBC.

    Some of the bearish advisers I monitor are worried that it might be, on the grounds that volume is a leading indicator and New York Stock Exchange trading volume has been trending lower. As you can see from the chart below, the five-day moving average of NYSE volume currently is a third less than where it stood in mid-December. To be sure, measuring the impact of lower trading volume is anything but straightforward, since trading volume has grown steadily over the years.

    Jack Bogle's counter-intuitive lesson on American excellence: Don't chase it

    Vanguard Group founder Jack Bogle brought the concept of low-cost index funds to the individual investor. His tremendous success in upending the Wall Street brokerage and mutual fund status quo includes a counter-intuitive lesson. Americans have long been taught to reach to keep up with the Joneses and that paying more can mean getting more, but in investing, mediocrity (or the average return) has consistently beaten the search for excellence.
