Financial Markets Vertigo and Forecasts for 2009 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI get a lot of newsletters from money managers around the country, which I try and read as they are written by people who are “in the trenches,” actually making decisions on behalf of their clients. It broadens my perspective. Frankly, most are not all that well written and unimaginative, but who ever said writing was easy? But some really strike a chord with me. Today’s Outside the Box I have read twice, which is unusual for me. Cliff Draughn is a wealth manager in Savannah, Georgia (Draughn Partners) and a good friend. His letter is a wide ranging tome on a variety of topics, but is full of common sense and one that I think will resonate with readers. I trust you will enjoy this.

Wall Street's Rigged Casino / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Jennifer_Barry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast year was certainly a turbulent one for investors. Not only did good assets and companies sell off with bad, but the very integrity of the U.S. markets was brought into question. Financial firms spend millions of dollars convincing the average citizen that investing in stocks is necessary and prudent, yet the playing field is far from level. Fraud, naked shorting and other forms of manipulation are now endemic to the American markets. As Overstock's lawyer, John O'Quinn points out, “You have more chance to be treated fairly in a casino in Vegas.” How can you invest if you can't trust the system?

Stock Market Index Sector Weightings, the Anatomy of a Bubble / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGood Things Come to Those Who “Weight” - There's nothing like a bubble to make the markets really exciting. You can make a lot of money in bubbles…if you get out in time (emphasis on the “if”).

It's not very easy though.

US Stock Market Index Open Interest Put / Call Ratio Analysis  / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Captain_Hook

Well, Santa has come and gone and provided those who bet on a Christmas time rally a nice return, the best ever in fact with respect to the broads. After such an outcome, it's traditional to see a pullback to work-off an overbought condition when the majority of traders return from holidays, so don't be surprised if the broad markets fall early this week. Given continued high and rising US index open interest put / call ratios however, updated here for your review, any weakness in coming days should be temporary, with further squeezing into expiry only two-weeks away now anticipated in knowing speculators have turned increasingly bearish. A review of Figures 1 through 7 in the attached above is the basis of this conclusion.

Nasdaq Q's Approaching Key Downside Targets / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) are approaching key near-term swing targets off of the Jan 6 rally peak at 31.63, the first of which is 29.35/30, which if violated will point to a press towards more important support at 28.80/70. My Oct-Jan pattern work argues that in either case (mentioned above), the larger pattern indicates that we should be expecting another upmove from 29.35/30 or 28.80/70. Having said that, however, my strategy for the Q's if I was short would be to cover "down here," but not to go long until we have signals to do so.

Stock, Commodities, Futures and Forex Markets Analysis 12th January 2009 / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe March NASDAQ 100 was steady to slightly higher in overnight trading as it consolidates some of last Friday's decline. Stochastics and the RSI are bearish signaling that a short-term top might be in or is near. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing at 1219.07 would confirm that a short-term top has been posted. If March renews the rally off November's low, the reaction high crossing at 1321.75 is the next upside target.

Stock Markets Retreat Ahead Of U.S. Corporate Earnings Season / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriday saw a late in the day sell-off of over 200 points in the Dow Jones. This was a reality check for those who tried (in vain) to trade the nonfarm jobs number as not quite as bad as feared . Standing back, while the headline number was not the kitchen sink number some had predicted, the downward revisions to previous months and the uptick in the unemployment rate meant the report was about as bad as it could have been. The major worry for equities remains earnings revisions and daily analyst downgrades which are sapping sentiment and sucking the life out of the appetite for risk.

Financial System in Serious Trouble, Investment Gods Are Angry / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Working Capital Model (WCM) is an historically new methodology, but with roots deeply imbedded in the building blocks of capitalism, and financial psychology--- if there actually is such a thing.

The earliest forms of capitalism sprung from ancient Roman mercantilism, which involved the production of goods and their distribution to people or countries around the Mediterranean.

Stock Market Correction Targets Retest of the Lows / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Down! The very-long-term cycles have taken over and if they make their lows when expected, the bear market which started in October 2007 should continue until 2012-2014. This would imply that much lower prices lie ahead.

SPX: Intermediate trend - An intermediate low may have been reached in November, but this remains to be confirmed. There is good possibility that January 2009 will bring a new low, or at least a test of the lows.

Stock Market Ready For The Breakdown... / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe wedges are hanging on by a hair. Horrific late action tells us the likelihood is for a break down out of those wedges we've been showing you and moving back towards a retest of the old lows over time with bounces along the way. Some have already broken and some are about to. You'll see that on the charts sent with this newsletter. It looks bad folks. I guess the hope for the bulls is that we'll get another successful retest of those lows. The divergences on a move down lower will put in positive divergences but any bounce better be good or we're headed for something we all don't want to think about.

Fair-Value and Mark to Market...The Most Expensive Scam in History? / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTime for "Surprise-Free" Valuation Standards? - Once upon a time accountants used to count beans. But then they realized (a) that's not very complicated and (b) you don't get paid much for jobs that are not very complicated (particularly after "out-sourcing").

So they decided to be management consultants. That can be as complicated as you want it to be, so it's very difficult to see if you did the job properly or not. Which is why there was (is) much more money in it, because if the punter doesn't have a clue what he's buying you can charge him a lot of money...if you get your branding right.

Global Stock Markets Spluttered Due to Dreadful Economic Data / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal stock markets reversed course during the last three days of the first full trading week of 2009 as investors were confronted with dreadful economic data, escalating layoffs and a bleak earnings outlook. As investor sentiment soured, the MSCI World Index and the MSCI Emerging Markets Index declined by 2.5% and 1.7% respectively during “turnaround week”.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment: Sell Strength (Again!) / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "dumb money" and "smart money" sentiment indicators are neutral on the equity markets. While a neutral reading is not particularly telling regarding market direction, it should be noted that this is the fifth week in a row where the "dumb money" is neutral, and this is not a scenario that is generally supportive of higher prices especially with prices on the S&P500 under their 40 week moving average. The ideal situation for higher equity prices would be for the "smart money" to be bullish and the "dumb money" bearish (i.e., bull signal).

Stock Market Selloff Relieves Overbought Pressure / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe good news is: Although all of the major indices were down substantially last week, new lows hit their lowest levels since November 2006.

Short Term New highs expand in strong markets. Recently we have seen the lowest levels of new highs since late 1987 when there were about half as many issues traded on the NYSE and 20% fewer on the NASDAQ than there are currently.

Stock Market Investors Don't Buy The Hype / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistorically, bear markets have run approximately one-third the duration of the preceding bull market. From my perspective, the last bull market began at the 1974 low and tried to conclude at the 2000 top. But, as I have said many times before, the powers that be would not let nature take its course. As a result, they created the largest credit bubble in history, not to mention the housing and commodity bubbles, all in an effort to save the stock market. This resulted in what I view as the last gasp up into the 1974 to 2007 bull market top and I believe that the correction of that bull market likely has a lot further to go.

Stock and Financial Markets Outlook for 2009 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Joseph_Dancy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe S&P 500 index of some of the largest and most profitable companies in the world was down 38.5% in 2008 – the worst performance since the Great Depression. Illiquid market sectors performed worse. Over the last ten years a long term investor in the S&P 500 would have lost money – so much for the ‘buy and hold well known companies' theory of investing.

Financial Doomsday for All Asset Classes / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Payroll employment fell by 524,000 over the month and by 1.9 million over the last 4 months of 2008. In December, job losses were large and widespread across most major industry sectors.

Stocks Close Near Lows of the Day and Week / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had a quite negative finish not only to the session but the week, and they went out with a 4-day downtrend, near the lows for the day, particularly on the Dow and S&P 500. The day started out with a very sharp move lower after the employment report. They bounced around and then edged up slowly in bear-flag fashion for the next 4-5 hours. In the last hour or so when they failed at the declining tops resistance going back 4 days, they rolled over in a 3-wave decline and closed at the lows for the afternoon on the Nasdaq and the lows for the week on the S&P 500 and Dow.
