FOMC Bring on the Clowns, Dollar, Gold and Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016

By: Dan_Norcini

Honestly, more and more that seems to be the best phrase to describe when waiting for these FOMC statements to be revealed.

If we are not seeing a case of deliberate attempts to break the back of their own currencies among these Central Bankers, then "Scotty, beam me up!"

With the Fed Fund futures showing sharp increases AHEAD of the FOMC statement of rate hike probabilities, today's ultra dovish statement had everyone positioned on the wrong side of the currency markets yet once again. The result was yet another unleashed chaos courtesy of our Central Bankers.

Stocks Premarket is Down, Awaits the FOMC / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

The SPX Premarket is down, but not sufficiently to break the next support level at 1988.79. Should the decline continue, I would expect to see a bounce in that vicinity.

Stock Market Bear Counter Rally Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Christopher_Quigley

Europe continues to disintegrate politically.
On the  26th of February the Irish people went to the polls in a general election. Nearly 3 weeks later a government has not been formed due to the fact that no main party won an outright majority. It looks like this instability will remain for at least another month or so. Spain went to the polls 3 months ago and still no government has been voted in. Belgium was unable for 541 days to form a government, following its general election in 2010.

The Four Blind Mice At the Cliff, Booms Built Reserves, Busts Liquidate Them / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016

By: Doug_Wakefield

"They Keynesian economists urge adoption of a "managed currency" and various forms of government intervention in the economic life of its fellow citizens. The idea is that government should supply an economic wisdom that private enterprise lacks or is unable to use. But even these economists see the uneconomic results of the government intervention which they advocate....Can government ever supply private enterprise with an economic wisdom which it would otherwise lack?" - Away From Freedom (1952) Vervon Orval Watts, pg 70

"Lenin is said to have declared that the best way to destroy the Capitalist System was to debauch the currency. By a continuing process of inflation, governments can confiscate secretly and unobserved, an important part of the wealth of their citizens....As the inflation proceeds and the real value of the currency fluctuates wildly from month to month, all permanent relations between debtors and creditors, which form the ultimate foundation of capitalism, become so utterly disordered as to be almost meaningless; and the process of wealth-getting degenerates into a gamble and a lottery." - The Economic Consequences of Peace (1919) John Maynard Keynes, pg 235 & 236

Stock Market Trading Cycle inverts... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

SPX closed yesterday above both its 200-day Moving Average at 2019.41 and its mid-Cycle support/resistance at 2012.67. However, this morning’s Premarket seems to have knocked it off both perches.

Today we have an inverted Trading Cycle Pivot. I originally anticipated it to be a Cycle low, as the vast majority of Trading Cycle Pivots are. Today’s Pivot corresponds with the November 16 and January 20 lows. As a result, I had miscalled the rally, expecting it to end much sooner. It appears that the rally far exceeded many other analysts calls as well.

Stock Market Crash is Imminent - This Chart Explains Everything... / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Crash

By: Harry_Dent

The story on Wall Street and CNBC continues to be that we’re in a correction and this is a buying opportunity. Even Warren Buffett joins the chorus of stock market cheerleaders for the skeptical public. Well, I agree with the skeptical public, not the experts here!

The bull market from early 2009 into May 2015 looks just like every bubble in history, and I’m getting one sign after the next that we did indeed peak last May.

I’ve been telling our Boom & Bust subscribers for months now that the dominant pattern in the stock is the “rounded top” pattern I show in the chart below:

Flat Close for Stock Market Indices / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices started the week off with an interesting day today and finished mixed on the session. The day started out with a move up in the morning in a 5-wave advance, they pulled back in the afternoon, that held support, they rallied to nominal new highs with about forty minutes to go, and then backed off into the close to close mixed.

Stock Market Waiting On Fed Wednesday.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Jack_Steiman

The market volume today was very low. The reason is simple. Not many want to place bets in front of fed Yellen on Wednesday when she does what she has to do regarding interest rates. We all know she won't raise rates this time, but the market is very interested in her language regarding the future. To get an idea if and when the next rate hike may occur. If she talks about raising in the future, I think the banks will clearly like that news, while the market reaction will be unclear, in my opinion.

The Stock Market Crude Oil Trap / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Bob_Loukas

The price correlation between the Crude and equity Cycles was on full display last week.  The only real difference is the relentless nature of Crude’s surge higher.  Crude was so oversold and bearish sentiment so elevated, that its march higher from the Investor Cycle Low has been unyielding.

The action appears to be a classic bear market squeeze, as traders who bet big on a continued decline have been forced to cover their Shorts.  And in the process, Crude’s mood has quickly turned.  The mood was bleak and extremely bearish just a month ago, but we’ve now begun to hear opinions that the bear market has ended and that Crude has seen the bottom.

Gold, Silver, Zika, ZIRP, and NIRP Viruses / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016

By: DeviantInvestor

The Zika virus is the newest threat to humanity, especially pregnant women, so they say.  Big Pharma is working feverishly to create a vaccine.  Chances are the vaccine will be created, highly profitable, and Big Pharma will be “held harmless” for injuries to those who were vaccinated.

Add GM mosquitos, birth defects, Brazilian Olympics, big profits, and the story becomes a huge distraction.  John Rappoport has suggested there is more to the story.

Warning From the Bank for International Settlements : The Calm Before the Storm? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2016

By: Mike_Whitney

The Bank for International Settlements (BIS) is worried that recent ructions in the equities markets could be a sign that another financial crisis is brewing. In a sobering report titled “Uneasy calm gives way to turbulence”  the BIS states grimly: “We may not be seeing isolated bolts from the blue but the signs of a gathering storm that has been building for a long time.”

The authors of the report are particularly concerned that the plunge in stock prices and the slowdown in global growth are taking place at the same time that investor confidence in central banks is waning. The Bank Of Japan’s announcement that it planned to introduce negative interest rates (aka–NIRP or negative interest rate policy) in late January illustrates this point. The BOJ hoped that by surprising the market, the policy would have greater impact on borrowing thus generating more growth. But, instead, the announcement set off a “second phase of turbulence” in stock and currency markets as nervous investors sold off risk assets and moved into safe haven bonds. The BOJ’s action was seen by many as act of desperation by a policymaker that is rapidly losing control of the system. According to the BIS:

Bloomberg reports, “Demand for U.S. shares among companies and individuals is diverging at a rate that may be without precedent, another sign of how crucial buybacks are in propping up the bull market as it enters its eighth year.

Stock Market Still in Rally Mode as SP500 Climbs Above 2,000 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion, speculative short positions are favored (with stop-loss at 2,050, and profit target at 1,900, S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is bearish, and our short-term outlook is bearish, as we expect a downward correction or short-term uptrend's reversal at some point. Our medium-term outlook remains bearish, as the S&P 500 index extends its lower highs, lower lows sequence. We decided to change our long-term outlook to neutral recently, following a move down below medium-term lows:

Stock Market Dip Monday, Tuesday? Gold Topping / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Brad_Gudgeon

Last I wrote, I thought we might be breaking down out of a rising wedge pattern in the SPX.  Apparently, many others thought the same thing, and you know what they say when too many agree.  So many are thinking we go lower from here and that has me concerned.  While I think we go lower over the next two days in the stock market (1957-62 SPX down about 3%) and I think that we are in the early stages of a bear market, the probabilities are we have one to two more weeks of general upside left before we top. My current upside targets are 2058-81 SPX.

It’s Too Early To Short Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Gary_Savage

Here are the cons to shorting the stock market:

The Fed and the PPT have a printing press. They have access to unlimited amounts of money, and they are extremely motivated in keeping the stock market propped up.

Most of the world is experiencing negative interest rates. Money is flowing out of those bond markets and it has to land on something.

Stocks Bear Market Rally or Not? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: WavePatternTraders

Everyone wants to really know if this is a bear market rally or will it make new all time highs on the SPX. It's been a while since I wrote an article, but in my last article I was looking for a minor new high for the SPX. To end the bull market that started from 2009. We never did see that, although we did see a new bull market high on the NDX.
