Stocks Secular and Cyclical Bear and Bull Markets / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this week, a friend asked me if I thought this stock bear was over.  My first thought was “which bear?”, for there isn’t just one.  The stock-market action over the last couple years has been a tale of two bears.  Investors who’ve failed to understand this critical truth are very confused on what to expect from stocks going forward.

How to Make Money on the Summer Stocks & Commodities Rally / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Uncommon_Wisdom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes: These are not normal markets — take what you know about how the market moves on fundamentals and throw them out the window, where they will probably drown in a flood of government money.

The government is spending so much money that, according to USA Today, taxpayers are on the hook for an extra $55,000 a household to cover rising federal commitments made just in the past year. That’s a rise of $6.8 trillion in new obligations in 2008 alone!

Stocks Almost Back In Black / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe AC/DC-like comeback since March 9th was almost complete, as the Dow Jones climbed 140 points early on yesterday on the back of better than expected retail sales numbers, a fall in jobless claims (though continuing claims climbed ever higher), a successful 30 year Treasury bond auction and a bullish cross in the 200 and 30 day moving averages. But Boeing lowering it’s 20 year forecast for the commercial plane market for the first time in a decade, oil topping $73 barrel (on an IEA report predicting rising demand) and tech and consumer discretionary stock weakness dragged the major indices back down, resulting in the Dow only registering a 32 point gain. I preferred Bon Scott anyway.

Looks Like a Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince humans have been greedy and fearful since the beginning of time, they tend to act in similar ways before, during, and after a financial crisis. These tendencies manifested themselves during the tulip bulb craze of the 1600s, the dot-com craze of the 1990s, and the real estate mania of the 2000s.

Why the Mainstream Financial Media Could DESTROY Your Stock Portfolio / Stock-Markets / Seasonal Trends

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to Groundhog Day.

Last year, when Bear Stearns went under and the Federal Reserve intervened via Bear’s shotgun marriage to JP Morgan, the mainstream financial media went absolutely berserk with the “unprecedented market action.” Stocks then rallied in the three months following this, despite the economic and financial fundamentals worsening considerably. However, by the time the summer rolled around, things started to get ugly. And by the 3Q08… well I don’t think anyone wants me to remind them of what happened then.

Stocks Unconvincing Up Session / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had a volatile session in that they were up in the morning, down mid-day, rallied back to new highs, and then rolled over in the last couple hours and gave back a chunk of the gains, but still ended up ahead on the day.

Stocks Take Solace In the Fed Economic Beige Book / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDéjà vu, as there was a late rally yesterday evening spurred by the Fed’s Beige book which noted that 5 of the 12 districts saw “that the downward trend is showing signs of moderating”. The market had earlier dipped on news of a very stodgy 10 year US Treasury Bond Auction (where investors demanded 3.99%, the highest yield since August 2008, to buy the government securities) and worries about inflation and higher gasoline pump prices. Note also that figures yesterday showed new mortgage applications at a four month low. Hardly surprising given a 30 year mortgage now costs 5.57% from 4.61% in March.

Long-term Review of Stock & Commodity Bull Markets, Alternating Leadership / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past 120 years, there has been a constant shifting of leadership between stocks and commodities. From 1875 to 1905, the U.S. stock market provided greater relative performance than raw materials. This changed to highlight commodities over equities from 1905 to 1920. The crown shifted back to stocks throughout the 1920s only to lose that leadership again to natural resources from 1930 to 1946. Stocks, once again, offered greater relative performance over commodities in the the late 1940s and continue to prove superior until 1965 where raw material prices took the leadership back from stocks and provided higher returns for investors until 1982.

Stock Market Afternoon Snapback Rally Pares Losses / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The markets had a very similar day to Monday in that there was a sharp sell-off in the morning, a bounce mid-day morning and then a move to afternoon lows which pressed weekly support on the SPX. But once again in the afternoon they came back solidly with a move from 1473 to 1495 on the NDX and from 928 to 939 on the SPX, closing near the afternoon rally highs going away and paring way back on the day's losses. However, they did end the session on the downside.

SDS UltraShort SPY Testing Resistance / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The hourly pattern carved out by the ProShares UltraShort SPY (NYSE: SDS) since the beginning of June shows that all the action appears to be developing into a sideways contractionary price range.  At this point, a decline that breaks 51.80/50 should trigger downside acceleration to new low territory, while a climb above 55.05/40 should trigger upside continuation towards 57.50-58.00 thereafter.  For the time being, after holding 51.79, the SDS likely is only mid-way through with its upward traverse of the recent range, as it heads for a test of 55.00 next.

Stock Market Investors Don't be Fooled by NYSE Advancing and Declining Issues / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

Stocks Snooze While The Great Economic Recovery Debate Rumbles / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA light volume yawn day saw equities crawl over the finish line to finish marginally higher. The bigger winners were the semiconductors stocks (up 4%) on the back of the bullish news from Texas Instruments Monday night. VIX (volatility) was down 5% which was odd given the tiny margin moves in the equity indices. Crude oil closed over $71 barrel (a high since Oct 2008) on seasonal demand and spec bets on the reflation trade. The Greenback was again looking soggy losing 1% though the three year Treasury Bond auction went well. Indeed fear of Fed rate hikes by the autumn appear way overdone.

Leading Economic Indicators, S&P 500, and 10 Month Moving Average / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past month I have highlighted the strategy attributed to Mebane Faber. It is a simple but elegant strategy that probably gets more merit for its aversion to risk than its ability to time the exact bottom of a bear market. It is a strategy - a way of executing a plan of when to buy and sell. It is not a "call" or opinion on the market. That stuff I will leave to others.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The European election result has been met with little interest in the United States; for one thing, the plethora of parties from 27 different countries makes it almost incomprehensible. Yet it continued a long-term, very important trend, which should be hugely interesting to international investors.

Suspicious Late Day Spike Pushes Stocks Flat / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome very strange price (and some would say suspicious) action around 20.15 last night saw the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones spike sharply to close flat having been under water to the tune of 130+ points earlier in the session. Despite sluggish sales from McDonalds and news that Apple was cutting the price of its iPhones, traders cited “programme buying” from JP Morgan and UBS for the late rally. After the bell Texas Instruments increased their 2nd quarter forecasts while self appointed Mr Know ALL Nobel prize winner (and boy has it gone to his head) Paul Krugman opined that the Great Recession with end for the U.S. by September.
