Financial Tsunami Sweeps Across World Economies / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors not only returned to a shortened trading week after the Labor Day holiday on Monday, but also to a bruising on stock markets, at least for those with long equity positions.

Concerns about the global economic outlook and continued financial duress spooked bourses around the world, with a number of other factors also adding to investors' nervousness. In particular, Pimco's Bill Gross, the manager of the world's largest bond fund, said the US needed to step up and buy assets to avoid a “financial tsunami” (Bill is renowned for talking his book on occasion!), Dwight Anderson's big Ospraie commodity hedge fund closed after suffering large losses, and Russia was selling foreign currency reserves to prop up the rouble after foreign capital fled the country following Russia's invasion of Georgia.

The End of Fannie and Freddie Pushes PIMCO into Deep Trouble! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mick_Phoenix

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to the Weekly Report. This week we look at the end of Fannie and Freddie and ponder why PIMCO are screaming for help.

Regular readers may have noticed that the Weekly Report hasn't been available on the excellent Safehaven.com or The Market Oracle since July. Nothing sinister to report, I just thought that subscribers deserved a bit of added value and some excellent TA on the direction of gold.

Gold Boosted by the Greatest Financial Collapse in History / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold Bugs, this week around the world, will be joining together to celebrate the greatest financial collapse in history, past or future. In bureaucrat-speak, a conservatorship for FNM & FRE is being created. However, Gold Bugs know a duck when they see one. Part of that celebration will be our heartfelt thanks for those at Federal Reserve. In this week's chart we recount the glory of that institution.

Paulson Moves to Prevent Financial System Collapse / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe GSE deal has been announced. Here is the Statement by Secretary Paulson on Treasury and FHFA Action to Protect Financial Markets and Taxpayers .

The title of the statement suggests two things.

1. This agreement will not reduce risk on the financial markets
2. This agreement will not protect the taxpayer

Let's take a look at excerpts to see how long it takes to verify that cynicism.

Government Manipulation Vs Market Forces / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: In America, times like these don't come around often. Usually, Americans are blessed with economic prosperity. Enduring periods of stagnant or shrinking economic growth are exceptions to the rule.

There's a big reason we've been so fortunate ... something often referred to as the market process. Contrary to what the current Federal Reserve or U.S. Treasury might have you believe, it is this naturally occurring progression that keeps the markets functioning the way they ought to function — free of interference.

Financial Markets Boyz are Back in Town / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: Dominick

Volume finally started to pick up this week, but it was all downhill for several days after opening Tuesday morning over 1300 on the S&P 500. Though we had some targets for a move higher, we've been skeptical of gap openings in either direction for the past several months and, as usual, looked to see the market set up a trade for us rather than guessing or assuming. The last two updates included important numbers we'd use to gauge price action and plan our trades. Among them were 1306, 1264, and 1292.

Global Stock Markets, Commodities, and the Economic Downturn / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Tim_Wood

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in 2006 and 2007 everywhere we turned we heard about China and their enormous consumption of commodities and why the Chinese were largely responsible for fueling the commodity boom. During this same time, we were seeing one of the longest extensions of the 4-year cycle in US stock market history. Then, between July and October of 2007 we began to see a Dow theory non-confirmation occur. By November this non-confirmation had evolved into a full blown orthodox Dow theory bearish trend change.

Counter Trend Stock Index Futures Position Trading / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: Joseph_Russo

Semi-Generational Long Haul is Toast: For one reason or another, Fibonacci time intervals of 34-units have maintained an excellent record of accomplishment over the past 150 years in identifying semi-generational peaks and troughs in the major equity indices. 1857-1891, 1932-1966, and 1974-2008 each represent 34-year long-haul bull market runs, all of which ended with 3, 5, or 8 years of bear market declines. If 150-years of pristine history are any guide, the current bear market will (at minimum) continue running its course through 2011, 2013, or 2016 prior to an absolute low marking its eventual bottom.

Stocks Bear Market is Smashing Everything- Shorting the Rallies / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Thursday the DOW fell over 300 points. I made a killing on my short positions, but gold stocks fell hard too. Luckily I got stopped out for a small loss the day before, but nonetheless I don't like seeing gold and commodities drop at all here. The bear is acting worse than even I had expected and is now smashing everything in sight.

Stock Market Panics Into September, a Historically Bad Month / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany reports have been published over the past few days about stock market seasonality and, specifically, about September typically being the worst month of the year.

I included the following paragraph in a recent post : “Seasonality indicates that ‘September has firmly secured the rank as the worst month of the year' ( Stock Trader's Almanac ), but that a year-end rally typically starts in late September / early October.”

Financial Markets Monthly Analysis and Stock Pick / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe markets continue to be range bound with the Dow Jones Industrias bouncing between 11,000 and 11,750.

The S&P 500 is caught between the 1220 and the 1300 level. In both cases this containment has prevailed since July and indicates the lack of conviction by the major players. Obviously nobody is convinced yet that the credit crisis is over.

Stocks Bear Market Trend Resumption Alert! / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Hans_Wagner

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you want to learn to invest, one of the best ways is to follow the trend. Following the trend is a proven way to beat the market and grow your stock portfolio. Basic technical analysis provides the tools to identify and follow the trends of the market as determined by the S&P 500.

It is best to begin with the big picture in mind and then work our way down to weekly and then daily views of the charts. You will notice that the chart and the value of the indicators change as we move from a monthly to a weekly and then a daily chart.

Stock Market SPY Likely to Break Below July Low / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

From a swing move perspective, the fact that the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) have violated 125.55/50 indicates that the current decline off of Tuesday's rally peak at 130.71 should accelerate lower to test and likely violate the 7/28 low at 123.42 on the way to 122.40/30 next. Any recovery rally effort is unlikely to be able to penetrate resistance above 126.30/50 prior to hitting 122.40/30 first.

Stock & Commodity Futures Markets Analysis / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe September NASDAQ 100 was lower overnight as it extends this week's decline. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If September extends this week's decline, the reaction low crossing at 1801.75 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing at 1908.45 would confirm that a short-term low has been posted.

In the Eye of the Storm of the Credit Crisis Hurricane / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Browne

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we enter the height of the hurricane season, it may be worthwhile to recall, when considering the economy at large, the particular deception that lurks in the “eye” of the storm. After a raging tempest, the sudden appearance of the calm ‘eye’ can all too easily encourage people to leave their shelter in order to assess and even repair damage, exposing themselves to the often more devastating second leg of the hurricane.

During the month of July, commodities began this correction with the largest monthly decline in 28 years . They are still falling. Similarly, Lombard Street Research 's measure of M3 fell in July the most on record (since 1959). The chart of the percentage change in money growth is below.

Stock Market Bears Ready to Strike During September / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe just had the summer rally. You may have missed it, but the S&P 500 managed to finish the month of August up a whopping 1.1% while the Nasdaq ended with a gain of 1.8%. You might detect some sarcasm here and there is a bit. You see despite the lack of conviction in the market action many people are calling for a new bull market in the financial media and on TV.

This week's Barrons has a story titled The Reluctant Bulls. It quotes Francois Trahan as saying that the "the US is the best stock market to be in." He claims that oil is going into a bear market, wage growth is shrinking and therefore inflation should fade. Combine that with interest rate cuts made by the Fed earlier this year that should begin to kick in to the economy and you have a recipe for "reviving domestic economic prospects," he says.
