Stocks Bull Markets Generate Economic Growth / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe UK economy is booming! 1.1% growth for Q2 2010 annualises to 4.4%. The academic economists that populate the mainstream press were caught off guard again! with growth expectations ranging from 0.3% to 0.5%. As is usually the case the excuses button was pressed to try and mask the fact that they to all intents and purposes remain clueless on the direction of UK Economy with much press chatter focused on an non existant double dip recession.

No Dow Theory Stock Market Sell Signal / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

On June 30th both the Industrials and the Transports closed below their June 7th lows.  In doing so, anyone who had not already proclaimed a Dow theory “sell signal” seems to have done so at that time.  I stated here in my last post, as well as in recent audio interviews, that I disagreed with anyone who has made such statements in regard to Dow theory.   I have since received a number of questions asking me how so many people could be wrong about Dow theory and if my position has changed.

Statistical View of Price Ranges for U.S. and China Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe price range you might expect for a security is a function of your time frame and the volatility of the security. Investors with a 10-year time frame have a much different price range expectancy than an investor or trader with a 10-month, 10-week, 10-day or 10-minute time frame.

Let's look at volatility based price range possibilities for the US S&P 500 and the China FTSE Xinhua 25 over different time frames from the unique high of each in 2007, low in 2008 or 2009, YTD and from the most recent important high.

Stock Market Edging Through The Wall..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

What a fight we are witnessing. The bears setting up camp right at 1099. The bulls working every single day to try to get through 1099, but seemingly never able to make the necessary move. Why? Because those bears have such a strong confluence of resistance within an 8-point range. We talked about it yesterday. The previous tails off 1099, the trend line at 1095 and the 50-day exponential moving average at 1091. 1091 to 1099, and yet within that small 8-point range, there is resistance after resistance that on their own would be difficult let alone having all of these headaches come together in such a tight area.

Markets Stressful Finish To The Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn a turn around Thursday markets staged a complete reversal with renewed risk appetite replacing the post Bernanke “unusual uncertainty” risk aversion. The day kicked off with some robust European data (better UK retail sales and German PMI) but it was a series of upside earnings surprises Stateside that proved the catalyst for the rebound U.S. stocks rose, with the Standard and Poor’s 500 Index gaining the most in two weeks, after companies as diverse as United Parcel Service to AT&T and Qualcomm all increased profit forecasts.

A Battle Royal in the S&P 500 Stocks Index / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe battle between the bulls and the bears continues in the S&P 500 with neither side able to gain the upper hand. This choppy trading action will eventually lead to a large move one way or the other. The bulls are betting that we are headed higher and the bears are betting that the economy is going tank.

The Wall Strikes Again / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

The day after fed Bernanke came out and told the world things stink the market rallied anyway, getting up to the big breakout level at 1099 on the S&P 500 . Interesting in that Bernanke told everyone yesterday that there was risk to the down side with respects to the expected GDP growth of 3.5% over the next few years. The market hated this because it also left the door open to a double dip recession scenario. Today, however, Mr. Bernanke came out and said he did not expect that to happen. Just slow growth but no double dip recession. The market loved it and rallied hard once it opened up for trading.

Excellent Day for the Stocks Bulls / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had an excellent day for the bulls, as they gapped up big, blew through initial resistance and kept running, reaching 1870 on the Nasdaq 100 and 1097 area on the S&P 500. Over the next few hours, they pulled back, bounced again, couldn't get through, and then backed off late in the session, but in the last 15-20 minutes came on again to finish with strong gains.

Stock Market, Dollar and Gold Trend Facts / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Steve_Betts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’ve known for a long time that elections were all about money, but I never realized just how bad and broad the problem was until I read that most of the sitting judges along the Gulf Coast receive donations from big oil. Big money has its hand in everything and it is the dominant force in the United States today. It elects your government, decides how you live, decides what and how you eat, where you can go and where you can’t, and what kind of life your children will live. It’s the modern version of the old fashioned “company store”, the theme from Tennessee Ernie Ford’s song “Sixteen Tons”.

Stock Market Thrill-Ride Thursday, Where Will Economic Indicators Lead Us? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIsn’t this fun?
Up 200, down 200, up 200, down 200 - wash out your savings, rinse and repeat! What a total sham of a market we have these days with machines running us up and down on virtually no news at all. Yesterday they would have you believe that Ben Bernanke caused a sell-off. How ridiculous is that? He didn’t say one thing that he didn’t already say in the Fed Minutes that were released on the 14th, which were the notes from the meeting of June 23rd so for analysts to get on TV and say “the markets were concerned by the Chairman’s comments” is beyond stupid – it’s criminal negligence.

Bernankes Unusually Uncertain Gloom Impacts Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS Fed Chairman Bernanke’s semi annual testimony on the Hill proved to be the game changer for stocks yesterday. Just as they had bounced Tuesday on whispers that he may offer fresh new policy measures, accommodation to support the markets, re-stimulate the flagging economy so stocks sold off Wednesday when he failed to deliver such. His comments were basically a rehash of the FOMC minutes (i.e. a fairly dour assessment of the economy) with one added Greenspan like euphemism for our lexicon i.e. that the outlook for the economy is “unusually uncertain”.

Stock Market Sharp Rollover on Bernanke Economy Warning / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices started the day with a big gap up, but that was it for the day in terms of the highs. They came down sharply, tested support, and did manage to hold by mid-morning and rally into early afternoon, but the S&P 500 failed to take out the 1085 intraday resistance level as the Nasdaq 100 made nominal new highs. That resulted in a sharp rollover after Ben Bernanke spoke about his concerns about the economy.

MortiES’ Stock Index Analysis, Up or Down? / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Dr_John_Trapp

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleES likes to take us for wild rides. Yesterday was a strong, outside reversal green candle. Trading wisdom would have it that there should be followthrough the next day. But ES doesn’t care about trading wisdom. Instead, the Bears came to the party and protected the 78.6% retracement level that we talked about in a previous post. As the first chart will show, we are not done with the W4 count yet, but it’s close. We have a line-in-the-sand that is nearby. Let’s see if the Bulls can defend.

Ben Bernanke Sends Stock Market Lower... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

You have to love honesty, and that's what we heard today when Mr. Bernanke told congress that things in the United States are not very good at all. That although the expectations are for 3.5% GDP (gross domestic product), the risk is towards weakness from that perspective. The moment this news came out, along with other tidbits not too friendly for Wall and Main Street, the market tanked out. No holding back either.

Stock Market S&P500 Death Cross or Buying Opportunity? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMuch has been made of the "Death Cross" that happened on July 2, 2010 in the S&P500. The "Death Cross" occurs when the 50 day moving average of price crosses below the 200 day moving average. Many interpret this technical "phenomena" bearishly, but as usual, folks are only reading the headlines and not critically looking at the numbers. There is more to this story. So what does the data say?

By: Tony_Sagami

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe warning signs about the U.S. economy are really starting to pile up.

The Philadelphia Fed’s widely-watched index of economic activity plunged in June to 5.1, about half the expected 10.0 reading the Wall Street crowd was counting on. Plus, the index of new orders dropped to a NEGATIVE 4.3.
