Things to Think About Before Mortgage Refinancing / Housing-Market / Mortgages

By: Kavinesh_A

   You have probably thought of the idea to refinance your mortgage in order to gain some benefits. Maybe you think it is a pretty good idea, but you first must know what exactly refinancing involves. Keep in mind that refinancing means applying for a loan from some loan intermediary like the Swedish company Sambla and going through the process from the start. It is like buying completely new house. Due to the many details and other things involved in the process, a good idea is to see a financial or mortgage advisor for advice. That way you will get a clear picture about interest rates and other important things.

Bonds and Related Financial Market Indicators / Interest-Rates / International Bond Market

By: Gary_Tanashian

The following is an excerpt from this week’s edition of Notes From the Rabbit Hole, NFTRH 488. For NFTRH bonds are not just an asset class ‘throw-in’ but instead are a key indicator set to the entire modern macro. Insofar as it may be time to use them for portfolio balance (I am currently long SHV, SHY, IEI & IEF), so much the better. Many could not wait to buy bonds during US ZIRP global NIRP operations, but today they pay better interest and have a contrarian edge with the entire herd bracing for a bear market.

We claimed appropriately bearish on bonds on December 4th, so you know this is not perma-book talking when we go the other way as yields hit our targets.

Probable Stock Market Pop-n-Drop / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

SPX futures are up enough to complete a fifth Wave of C. The 61.8% Fibonacci level and Intermediate-term resistance at 2754.93 are still key to this retracement, although the SPX may briefly go as high as 2763.59 in a pop-n-drop to clean out any short positions with stops. This market is being vicious to those who shorted late and making it difficult to keep their positons. It may be a good time to layer in any short positons you may wish to have.

Stock Market Bull Trap? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Brad_Gudgeon

The rally into early Monday, February 26, 2018 is no surprise to me.  The charts below were written over the weekend suggesting follow through buying into early Monday at or above SPX 2754 and then a sudden fast reversal down below the 2532 area.

I’ve seen this e-wave pattern before following a wxy W Wave where Wave X sees an irregular topping pattern (coming out of a bull flag formation) catching the bulls by surprise and leading to huge down move.

An Inflation Indicator to Watch, Part 2 / Economics / Inflation

By: F_F_Wiley

“Inflation comes from too much money chasing too few goods.” –Many an economics professor

But does it really?

In Part 1 of this series, I said I would challenge popular beliefs about inflation, while at the same time proposing an alternative theory. I also promised that the theory leads to an inflation indicator with an excellent prediction record, and I’ll define the indicator in this article. Considering inflation determines bull and bear markets in both stocks and bonds, that’s my big pitch.

But first, here’s a recap.

Here Is The Most Ridiculous Commentary About The Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Avi_Gilburt

Whenever I write a new article on the stock market, I usually try to highlight just how ridiculous much of the commentary about the market truly is. My ultimate goal is to force you to think on your own and adopt a more intellectually honest perspective of financial markets, rather than just buying into anything you read or hear.

Two weeks ago, I noted how the pundits claimed the market dropped because of rising rates, but when the market rallied, the same pundits claimed that it was rallying because of rising rates.

Stocks Break Higher but Their Rally May Fade / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: Paul_Rejczak

Stocks rallied on Friday, but they remained within their week-long consolidation. Which direction is next? Will bulls drive prices higher this week? Or will Friday's move up fade today? The S&P 500 index continues to trade along the level of 2,700-2,750, and it is still around 4.4% below its late January all-time high. Stocks are expected to open higher today, but will they continue upwards after 9:30 a.m.?

The main U.S. stock market indexes went 1.4-1.8% higher in Friday's trading session, as investors' sentiment improved following week-long fluctuations after previous week's rally off February 9 lows. The S&P 500 index got close to its recent local highs and it currently trades around 4.4% below January 26 record high of 2,872.87. It retraced more than 61.8% of its late January - early February sell-off (retracement level at 2,742.92). The Dow Jones Industrial Average gained 1.4%, and the technology Nasdaq Composite gained 1.8% on Friday.

The No.1 Blockchain Stock Of 2018 / Companies / BlockChain

By: OilPrice_Com

Last year, crypto-currencies burst on to the scene.

Bitcoin saw incredible gains in 2017, rising from $1,000 all the way to $19,000 in mid-December.

But regular investors have so far missed out on the cryptocurrency craze, as not only is the technology behind cryptocurrencies confusing, but the investment process is intimidating… or at least it used to be.

Now investors looking to score on the crypto-currencies market in their regular brokerage account are in luck.

A Newbie's Guide to Investing in Stocks / InvestorEducation / Learning to Invest

By: D_Morgan

The stock market can be a daunting experience for a beginner. However, investing in shares will provide you with an opportunity to gain greater returns. There are two different ways to have an access to the stock market: investing directly or indirectly.

Investing Directly

Direct investments mean you are buying shares from a single company and become one of their shareholders. There are many available broker services. Some offer tailored advice and bespoke services like Redmayne Bentley, Killik & Co, and Charles Stanley. However, there are also others who only execute share dealing services.

2018: The Year Of The Margin Call / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2018

By: John_Rubino

Indicators of a market top began piling up way back in 2014, and since then most have gone on to unprecedented extremes. Every analyst has their favorite harbinger of financial doom, but the easiest to understand — and the most tragic — is probably margin debt.

This is money borrowed by (usually individual or “retail”) investors against their existing stocks to buy more stocks. Investors tend to do this when markets are rising and using leverage seems like an effortless way turbocharge their gains. But eventually the market turns down, leaving stock portfolios insufficient to cover related margin debt and generating “margin calls” in which brokers demand more money and/or start liquidating customer portfolios. This sends the market down sharply and indiscriminately, as fairly-valued babies are dumped along with overvalued bathwater. The result: a quick, brutal bear market.

Gold Setting Up For A Massive Upside Price Rally / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2018

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Over the past few months, our research team has nailed many of the recent moves in the Metals market thanks to our advanced price modeling systems and detailed research.  Recently, we’ve been watching a setup play out in Gold that has excited us.  The potential for a massive upside rally that should originate as early as March 19 (only a few weeks away).  The reason this is so exciting is that a breakout move in the gold market would indicate a global rush into a protective market because of fears originating from other market sectors.

Heavy Police, SIA Security and Media Presence for Sheffield Tree Fellings Monday Meersbrook Park Road / Local / Sheffield

By: N_Walayat

After a 4 week break the felling of mostly healthy Sheffield street trees is to resume on Monday 26th Feb from about 7am, as streets such as Meersbrook Park Road and Chatsworth Road will be flooded with police and SIA security personnel tasked with ejecting any peaceful protestors from the cordoned off zones around trees ear marked for destruction. Therefore as was the case a few weeks ago, the protestors are likely to be even more far outnumbered by SIA security and police then in January.

Bastiat Knew the Proper Limits of Government Force / Politics / UK Politics

By: Frank_Hollenbeck

High school students in the United States are usually required to take a course in government. They learn about the structure of government but rarely discover the appropriate role of government or the justifiable limits for the use of force in our society. If they did, one of their required readings would be Frédéric Bastiat’s treatise The Law, a seminal mid-Nineteenth-century work that describes eternal truths about life and how we pursue justice. These truths are just as valid today as they were then.

2020-2022 What will happen to the World Indices, A US Constitutional Crisis or Something Else?

The market move by Technical sequences, levels, and areas. Every day we see how the price moves from one area to another and relates the time frames from Subminutte cycles to the Grand Super cycles. The Idea is relating the degrees and creating sequences in each time frame in an impulse nature of 5-9-13 or corrective in 3-7-11. We track over 80 instruments at Elliottwave-Forecast.Com and we related them then divided in groups each day. We understand the nature of the Market and we knew back in 2017, that in 2018 the World Indices will be ending a Cycle degree and another cycle degree will start and run into the 2020-2022 period when many cycles will reach the 100% extreme areas within the Grand Super cycle and also reach the time 100% extension within the Super cycle degree.

Will We See A Cryptocurrency Wipeout This 2018? / Currencies / Bitcoin

By: Science_Investing

Summary
Every cryptocurrency investor and trader must carefully consider the underlying facts to their investment. There are major red flags from a fundamental and technical point of view. Therefore crypto traders and investors should invest only as much as they are ready to loose in case of a total wipeout. Moreover, everyone should critically question expert opinions suggesting to buy cryptocurrencies.

Right now we see a great opportunity to divest at attractive levels. It is highly likely that the situation will change. A total wipeout is not unlikely in the near future.

Stock Market Volatility Attributed to 'Shenanigans' / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: The_Gold_Report

Technical expert Michael Ballanger explores the maneuvering he believes underlies current market fluctuations.

Back in January, I discussed the likelihood that global equity markets were approaching simultaneous tipping points beyond which legions upon legions of GenX-ers and Millennials would be thrown to the wolves by failing to recognize the financial mania engulfing them. I alluded to it being "Time for the Beast to Exhale," and within a few days, my volatility trade (UVXY) exploded to the upside as the "beast," better known as the global stock market ascent, finally exhaled and fell 3,300 Dow Jones points in a week.
