Financial Markets Stabilize After Recent Beatings / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Regent_Markets

Traders, investors, and financial journalists must have been glad to reach the end of a week that will surely go down in the history of financial markets. The FTSE closed the week just 66 points down which the S&P 500 actually managed a small profit. Homeowner, the closing figures do not even begin to tell the whole story with the FTSE trading in a 521 point range and posting its best one day rally in history on Friday.

Irony: Fed Decisions To Undermine U.S. Banking System? / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLet's start with an important quote gleaned from an excellent article in today's Washington Post which describes the Fed's massive and unprecedented bailout plans that are intended to rescue the entire financial system from further implosion:

“The program announced this morning runs the risk in the long run of profoundly changing the nature of our financial system and, specifically, undermining the nation's banking system,” wrote American Banker's Association President Edward Yingling.

Stock Market Cycle Projections and Turning Points / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

Long-term trend - The Dow Jones Industrials may be deviating from their typical decennial pattern in an election year. Important cycles going into the Fall could be the reason for this, but one also has to consider the possibility that the downward pressure from the 120-yr cycle, which is due to make its low in 2012-2014, has begun to take effect and that October 2007 was the top of the bull market. This is not yet confirmed and remains only a possibility.

SPX: Intermediate trend - Last week's action suggests that the intermediate trend correction may have run its course, but a test of the low is quite probable.

Historic Week: US Government Avoids Financial Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial markets aptly ended a tumultuous week with record busting rallies as Hank Paulson at the US Treasury suspended the FREE MARKET so as to prevent a collapse of the financial system. The two triggering events for the turnaround in stock markets were

a. The SEC banning of short-selling of 799 financial stocks.

b. The US government announcement of the intention to buy up bad bank debt, where the initial outlay will cost the US Tax payer 700 billion.

Question: What happens when you destroy a negative? Is that a bad thing, or a good thing?

Answer: It depends on how good of a liar you are. If you can get everybody to believe that the negative is something of positive value, its destruction will be seen as a catastrophe.

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: I applaud you if you've made it through this past week with only a few scratches and bumps in your trading account. I know for a fact that plenty of traders got their lunch handed to them.

Thanks to what I call the "visible hand" theory of central banks and the U.S. Treasury, times like these make it even harder to get positioned and stay positioned without being whipsawed.

Paulson's Market Manipulation Bailout Will Fail Because.. / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs a trader, I stopped getting disgusted at government manipulation of markets several years ago, didn't pretend it wasn't happening, just tried to find when it was coming. I decided to develop an indicator that would tell me when the probability was extremely high that the Master Planners would intervene. That approach has served us well, and that indicator is known as the Plunge Protection Team (PPT) Indicator. It flashed a new “buy” signal Monday, September 15 th at the close, rising above positive + 20.00, warning that the decline from August 11th was terminal. The Industrials have risen 565 points since that buy signal. When this measure rises above positive + 20.00, it is usually early, but very right, an early warning indicator telling us to enjoy the decline for a few more trading days but get ready for a spike rally.

Stock Market Update: It's A Trader's World / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: Dominick

IBest Financial Markets Analysis Articlet's incredible to be living and trading in these historic times which people will be reading and talking about for decades to come. But making some money while we're at it is even better, especially since so many are in the red for this year. Now that we've gotten this huge move of over 120 points off of Thursday's low, we have to respect the rally and expect some follow-through in the short term, even while the choppy, volatile action continues. Looking at some of the internals on this move, shown below, you have to figure there's a good chance that a feel good rally into the election has just begun, an idea we'll be exploring in greater depth this weekend for members only. The charts below show us the extremes that we saw this week in up volume, total volume, and the Vix.

United States Becomes Toxic Debt Waste Dump to Stop Financial Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe camel's nose got in the tent when Bear Stearns was bailed out. The question is, when will it end? The U.S. government moved to cleanse banks of troubled assets and halt an exodus of investors from money markets in the biggest expansion of federal power over the financial system since the Great Depression.

Financial Markets Day of Rest / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Doug_Wakefield

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“By the seventh day God completed His work which He had done, and He rested on the seventh day from all His work which He had done.” Genesis 2:2

As we head into the third weekend of the month, it looks as though our illustrious financial leaders will once again find no rest this weekend. After working through the weekend of September 5 th , to structure the US government takeover of the two largest holders of mortgages in the world (Fannie & Freddie), they continued over the weekend of September 12 th , deciding that the 158 year old company that is the largest underwriter in municipal bonds (Lehman Brothers) would be allowed to go bankrupt and that one of the world's leading wealth management firms (Merrill Lynch) would be bought out by one of the largest banks in the world (Bank of America), one would have thought that they could have taken some time off. Yet, no rest was found for the weary.

Paulson Commits Trillions of Tax Payer Dollars to the Mother of All Bailouts / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJust three days ago, after looking at the prospect of bailing a string of distressed financial institution in the country, the government seemingly drew a line in the sand, and refused to bail out Lehman Brothers. The authorities clearly saw Lehman’s demise as a trial balloon to see how the markets would react if the government stayed on the sidelines. That trial balloon quickly turned into the Hindenburg. Immediately reversing course, the Government has decided to go “all in” and bail out every institution with financial exposure to U.S. mortgages.
