Credit Crisis Developments Explained - China Cut Short-Term Interest Rates / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Fredrick_William

There appears to be a good deal of opacity in what the Fed has said on Sunday regarding a broadening of the collateral it is willing to hold on short-term emergency loans to primary dealers. The exotic financial instruments created this week-end by the Fed are very difficult to price. The effects are less contained than in the past and they are larger given that they emanate from the subprime crisis and directly affect the net worth of households.

Lehman's Bankruptcy the Ultimate Wall Street Derivatives Defaults Nightmare / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin D. Weiss writes: In the wake of Lehman's demise, Fed Chairman Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Paulson will try to put out the word that it's no great trauma.

But it's a lie and they know it. If they openly admitted that the Lehman collapse will paralyze Wall Street, torpedo the stock market and sink the economy, they'd have to pony up $100 billion or more to support it. Instead, their agenda was to push big banks to put up the money. And they failed to do so.

The Death of Wall Street -Part 1 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough not yet official, the verdict is on the way. Bear Stearns led the death march a few months ago. Now, Lehman's bankruptcy filing signals the halfway mark of what will end up being the death of Wall Street. Now Goldman Sachs stands alone as the sole remaining true Wall Street firm.

Stock Markets Fizzle Out After Freddie and Fannie Bailout Rally / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

A week that showed so much promise ended up being a huge let down. A lot of ink was spent on the take over of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae by the US government, and it allowed equity markets around the world to open the first trading day up 3%. This sadly didn't last, as traders realized quickly that this take over was akin to putting a band-aid over a third degree burn; it was not a long term solution

Banana Backed Securities Turning United States into a Banana Republic / Stock-Markets / US Economy

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine if you will the US government finally after nearly 50 years opened the vaults of Fort Knox for an inventory of gold by an "External Auditor". There have been claims by the folks of the US Government of audits as recent as one year ago…there are a number of thoughts regarding IF there is in fact any gold present in Fort Knox. This article is not intended to debate the above thought, but to metaphorically "think" what they truly would find within the vaults of Fort Knox. My thoughts are that opening the vault of Fort Knox as above would result in seeing it filled with bananas…quite a contrast to the expected yellow objects "thought" to be contained behind tonnes of steel.

Bailout Lemmings Getting Ready to Jump Over the Cliff / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac are placed under conservatorship, you would think that the politicians would step away from that mess and let things settle down. Instead, the U.S. Senate Banking Committee members urged Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac , the mortgage companies placed under federal control this week, to freeze foreclosures on loans in their portfolios for at least 90 days.

Proxy Short Position in S&P 500 Stock Market Index / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Peter_Schiff

There are so many crosscurrents in the markets right now that I really don't trust much if any sector on the long side. With that in mind, and in view of the multitude of uncertainties we are faced with, our model portfolio will remain in our proxy short S&P 500 position via the long side of the Short S&P 500 Proshares ETF (AMEX: SH). Let's notice the cluster of critical support represented by the rising 20 and 50 day moving averages, as well as from the September up trendline -- all in the vicinity of 69.00-68.60. Unless that area is violated, we need to maintain a proxy short position.

Equity and Commodity Markets Dichotomy of Sanity / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne dictionary meaning of the word “dichotomy” is: “Division into two usually contradictory parts or opinions”. Alternatively: “being twofold; a classification into two opposed parts or subclasses.”

It has been this analyst's experience that truly sane people are those who sometimes display symptoms of what appears to be insanity. One cannot appreciate light unless one has experienced dark. One cannot appreciate happiness unless one has experienced sadness. No one can be truly sane unless he experiences flashes of insanity. It's a question of degree.

General Motors (GM) Breaks Out / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

We told our subscribers earlier today with General Motors (NYSE: GM )at 11.75 that the pattern -- a spike low followed by a vertical thrust, followed by a 60% pullback that morphs into a rounded secondary base formation -- usually finds a way to take off to the upside. Wow, did GM rocket after that, above its breakout plateau at 11.85/90 to an intraday high so far at 12.82. The bullish pattern remains intact and continues to point to 13.10/20 and then 14.00/20. Only a close below 11.75 will compromise the still bullish outlook.

Looking for a Stock Market Bottom? Look to Wall Street / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street created this mess and they continue to mislead everyone who bothers to listen. But it will be Wall Street that signals a bottom if you know what to look for. Watch for massive downgrades and/or extreme pessimism. This is how the game is played. Remember how the Internet bubble played out? Wall Street surely won't tell you when to get out of the market. But they will tell you when to get back in if you know how to read their actions.

Stock, Commodities and Currency Futures Markets Analysis / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe September NASDAQ 100 posted an inside day with a higher close on Wednesday as it consolidated some of Tuesday's decline but remains below broken support marked by July's low crossing at 1765.25. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If September extends this week's decline below July's low, March's low crossing at 1693.75 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing near 1870.65 are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted.

Intraday Double-Bottom in SPY Stock Market Index / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) pressed lower than I thought was likely, the secondary low at 122.55 preserved this morning's pre-open LEH low at 122.47. The subsequent rally to 123.94 has left behind an intraday double-bottom that has power to revisit key near-term resistance at 124.00, which if hurdled should trigger continuation to 125.25/50 thereafter.

There's going to be no end of controversy over the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

Stock Market Volume and Seasonal Trend Analysis / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor a good part of the summer, trading volume was exceptionally light on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). This was largely influenced by the typical summer vacation season this year. For the better part of July and August, the absence of heavy trading activity coincided with a more or less listless stock market and even a mild interim rally in the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Since returning from the summer vacation season, however, institutional traders have taken a good look at the market picture and evidently don't like what they see. This displeasure was manifested in the form of high-volume selling on Thursday, Sept. 4, which saw a upside-to-downside volume ratio on the NYSE of 1:13.

Nouriel Roubini Dead Wrong on Financial Markets Regulation / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we get to addressing Roubini's blaming of the mess we are in on "free-market laissez-faire" philosophy, let's take a look at calls for Paulson and Bernanke to resign, and one other post on "Socialism For The Rich".

Inquiring minds should consider Senator Bunning Says Paulson Acts Like Socialist, Should Resign .
Senator Jim Bunning said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, by rescuing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, is acting like China's finance minister and both Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke should step down.

The Bailout Plain Truth and the Silent Economic Depression / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy 2 cents on the Bailout
Without even looking, I’d be willing to guess that 2 out of 3 articles on most financial blogs are on the bailout of the GSEs. I’m willing to bet it will dominate headlines for months to come. Before I move on to more relevant material, I think Americans need to start asking some critical questions. If they were “too big to fail” as Paulson, Bush, Bernanke and other cronies insist, why were they allowed to operate with exemptions from the SEC Acts of 1933 and 1934? If they were “too big to fail” why didn’t Washington take over the GSEs in 2004 after the accounting fraud was detected. If they were “too big to fail” why were they transformed into shareholder firms with virtually no regulation, no accountability, no transparency and allowed to act irresponsibly? The implied backing by the government made it certain that a bailout was eminent. But doesn’t government backing also come with accountability?
