"I think they are going to enforce it," said Bill Rhodes at Rhodes Analytics in Boston.
"It makes the short a little more vulnerable, but at the same time it provides the market with a lot better information about what's going on," said Rhodes.

Bill Rhodes, head of Boston-based Rhodes Analytics, which doles out investment advice to institutional investors, views the latest loss of an additional 190,000 jobs as not as good as expected, but also not as bad as it had been.
September showed 263,000 lost jobs. Rhodes also believes we could see job losses cease in April and May. One positive note from the current pace of job losses, he points out: it will be very hard for the Federal Reserve to hike interest rates.

"I would be a buyer and certainly not a seller because the run in the equity market still has farther to go," institutional investment adviser Bill Rhodes says.
Rhodes, head of Boston-based Rhodes Analytics, which doles out advice to some of the country's largest banks, mutual funds and hedge funds, offers a number of reasons to support his bullish thesis that the sizzling rally has considerably more staying power. In brief, based on his models, he sees the S&P 500, now at 1044, headed nearly 12% higher to 1067 between now and year-end. Chief among his reasons: A noticeable pickup in the economy, which is turning out to be not as bad as expected. A lot of liquidity on the sidelines, nearly3.6 trillion alone in money market mutual funds. No big rise in interest rates and reasonably low inflation. Ample liquidity in the banking system. A former Merrill Lynch strategist, Rhodes also points to significant plusses on the technical front, each of which, he notes, is indicative of higher stock prices. Noteworthy in this respect are: An improving advance-decline ratio (a reference to the number of advancing stocks, versus those that are declining), indicating the market is maintaining a broad advance. Declining volatility, meaning lower spreads between the bid and asked in stock prices. More than 94% of the stocks on the New York Stock Exchange are trading above their 200-day moving averages. Rhodes wouldn't discuss individual stocks, but he did pinpoint what he viewed as the strongest market sectors, notably consumer discretionary, financials, industrials and materials (such as steel, copper and non-ferrous metals like aluminum). Although gung-ho on the market, Rhodes took note of a number of concerns.
