Historical norms that we look at when we fuel market and Robert -- recipient of the most recent -- present economic. What are argue the same thing that historically. Stocks. Stock price. A hole in the market. Will that deviate too far from the underlying earnings for that is used to support it. So you can imagine that that stock prices are supported by the cash flows of the -- So big earnings of affirmed. Firms across the market. Are maintaining. The rising. Behavior. Well stock prices are going to rise to meet. -- noticed over time is that historical averages for what we call the price earnings ratio. Or somewhere between fourteen and seventeen the war on average. And in particular those. Anchored that you mention that price earnings ratio. Rose precipitously especially during the dot com -- in the old seven credit market. -- Do you ratios for free throws well above the historical means they were hurt in the third.

Price -- ratios are now to -- -- There reasonably well and so people would argue that given what we would consider. Historical. They -- at the top and what valuation should be for the market as a whole. But honestly there is no way to dictate or for port tail away and -- it -- -- but it under it. That if it's that word. They were even possible. You'd you would -- that -- -- being created but you don't need to look -- very very difficult job. -- at the Olympic uppers breaker when we come back.

And you're wonderful tell me well the Internet rules changed everything it can't look back -- history. Did their opinion. And an -- when you consider the business cycle and -- -- -- and come back and ask you about that anybody out there.

Right now we're talking about a marketed the pro moved five Beers stocks have been rising. Since 2002013. At some. 18%. Gain over -- here. We're talking with -- professor David Letterman associate professor but it's -- in school of business. Surge and the impact of frequency trading on the stock market. Bread for the break I mentioned. What are taught to look Princeton role in the financial industry in this -- it's different war album always said. It's an. Is changed every. What you. Well we all remember the Internet because of the Internet while police in my mind and we have seen. In terms of Internet firms. That reform in the solely vast proliferation in the listings of NAVTEQ firms or tech firms or Internet firms. And it became that the new normal as Arafat achieved at the time Greenspan and that where. Firms would grow revenues. But not necessarily earnings. But that was -- prefer was young and you can -- that firm in in the hope that the earnings would catch up to the price. -- -- back to where PE racial discussion before. So things would then become. More balanced overtime. And never -- And -- never did catch up with the -- Revenue performance and and stock purchase well. But on a broader circle. The Internet has below for information diffusion to proliferate so that people can. Go on the net pick up information and firm or look at firms or read blogs on firms. And try to gain. Information that they would not have otherwise and it's so easy access to it. So there. Has changed things a lot. But remarkably things that are currently happening we still evaluation. Of that. That are still predicated on earnings. And ridiculous prices that are predicated on those earning. So in that regard well the Internet satellite information and Internet but the firm has definitely changed landscape of that I'd prefer the more we can get hot. For -- but the would be interesting environment. Is remarkably it but I have to that is. Technical people's view that -- treating it in the advent of the Internet is an avenue. Profit in girl for them. That very rare and that is very distinctive. It is very very very difficult to consistently make money patriot. You're rooting against professionals and more portly high frequency traders have far better access to -- rationed and you. And are much close to the source of the information. And as a result he ordered comparative disadvantage in that particular regard. All right let me bring more liberal losers Henry on the North Shore you rural and -- professor live. Hello and thank you my mind I'm curious about how much of an impact. That was saying -- has no interest rate environment and folks which is not giving people. Investment options -- vote outside of the equity markets. -- is that driving a lot of revenue and -- funds into the equity market and you concerned about that factor perhaps pleasing to some -- valuations. You know that they're really good question and your career -- in your right here. I do believe it's news that the heroic history department. Critical. Through the quantitative -- process. Has created in one that class investment and that is the stock market there is impressed plans out there and you're very correct Indians in observing that. The bond market yields being zero means fixed income is not an investment class retirees can reliant. You can't look outside the US because of from oil and Ukraine in in Brazil and India and China. So you're finding -- market investments B two B cultural. In that -- -- market. And an -- like you believe that this one ethnic class that's been created. It is being artificial the propped up. For two reasons one of which you mentioned that. Cash is flowing out of the bond market and into the stock market because we know -- -- the game. But come back and when we look at what prices should be completely discount them rate. And with the Fed lowering interest rates such -- low level at discount rate is now very low. Which means that any cash flows from birds are going to be. Magnified in terms of price. So we have two factors one is. Investment flows into the market out of any of their investment vehicle afraid. Of real estate which people are testing it. But the second reason is that the discount rate excuse but it did -- -- cash flows to arrive at a price that analysts would recommend the discount rate below. So now we're seeing and vacations and valuations. In this particular perspective. So yes I do believe that the Fed actions happen there economic impact impact on markets but in particular the premarket. No this is difficult to do that it is a risk to achieve it maybe you. All about it terms -- How much. Risk in terms of equity market. Yeah well. The other players need we need we would like argue for a total number of factors that that we that we would look at this particular -- But one factor that that people are discussing which. Is that currently being spoken about it is it is apple volatility. I hope of the box themselves and whether an -- can be used to price. Future market returned. In this particular respect for people to look at formal level volatilities namely how much the prices and an eighty patients over one month. If that number theory across all the stocks. Then you can predict that the next -- amber is going to be elevated to compensate you for that added volatility risk. I don't blame for that. The only metric we have heard this standard data which I'm not a future workers while but. Is that volatility also some some copper red light that some of that should be -- it. Well you know when you start to the volatility swings in the market you support to the evidence that. -- underlying. Liquidity costs are starting to go opera and when they begin to be elevated. That means that volatility is going to be rising as a result. And conversely if the -- after the falling volatility is going to be following as well. So if you believe that their volatility measure both of fixed indexed for for instance or the volatility. Firm level. Return to. That and that become the be gets to be elevated. You can then begin to predict that markets -- -- -- -- conversely that beacon -- markets are going to bear market returns could be expect the full. Next period however I have to say that none of this none of in terms of volatility. Is firmly established and literature all -- we can make deficits. But techniques and -- know what to wide investors have been take a look at everything picture picture investing and and you were exposed to a number of different ethnic classes because. It is regular investors like you know -- We need to be exposed to these stock market regard. And it's been an earlier earnings exclude today. But if the market's going down we don't know that America is going up again I don't know that I do notice that the market will move to more. The media exposure to the stock market we need exposure to the bond market we need exposure to some decline and in and so do we arrive at diversification. Which means that one day of classes going up and the other two were going down ever recover and still be positive. I'm banking. Because they do believe in one aspect define it that's very true that diversification benefits. And what we find is that retail investors you are not diversified. We're all in one -- -- oracle or all of another class that that an effort to expose new testament to. Professor. It's amazing and thank her. It's amazing. Is that hindering -- since. And it as all those questions. And he came and the other. Oh so the brilliance of that course was really easy repayments. From about -- thank you so much love to have you back later on. Hewlett 2000 -- in Horry is actually. Concerning frequency trading choate thank you again and have it. Aren't covered -- -- will have -- two -- experts and it's done well we'll talk about about the market blood. Primarily. About. Or you ready for retirement were room were retiring in this country. If you marked the year 2011. And -- nineteen years every one of those years. Every day of those yours we will air at least. People in this country and well and people will turn sixty. So we're gonna talk about retirement or -- you ready if they can get ready. A British Columbia. And pick a room just isn't predicting.

And and accessible. It's doing and Edmonton country. And I don't know how good these numbers or pulled out something calls it is the brewery and was number one and -- groups urged. So unpalatable it's so blatantly. What it says the average age of government in this country is 662. And the leading that you. Average link between answering retirement is eighteen yours. And the average Americans. As say 43000. Dollars. So we've got. And now baby boomers hitting 65. Every day.

Older retirement crisis that definitely clear they're they have not been as. And at Gallup poll recently talked about how. The top financial worry among Middle -- American is not having enough money for retirement that clearly on people's mind.

We -- fidelity -- at the statistics rather average borrowing came down that people had back in the market. Low economic downturn with 46000. The people who stuck with that kept contributing. By the first quarter 2014. Average balance was up to 88600. So if you can -- you have nowhere without it cut it. You're spending and they have a little more. Down they can have a big impact. Bread. A just turned a 103. Am -- ready for the retirement thing in what do you suggest to people that are hitting this with. Well leave an 88600. For another eighteen years and how they -- that. And I think everybody has. Negotiated in their own -- in obviously depends on the resource is you have go on and I mean clearly. The first thing we need to I guess we can see is we now. The market is not really good representation of the economy in. I think would probably taken place more and asked that market but the real estate and stocks. The more the result of bad policy than anything else battle thanks doctor being bid up because people are more optimistic about his future corporate earnings. It's more a function of quantitative easing in and -- essentially repressing interest rates which prop up ball all risk assets. I think everybody called that different as people who have passed that.
