The Moral Hazard of Financial Markets Regulation / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Since the bailout bill passed, I have been frequently disturbed to hear "experts" wrongly blaming the free market for our recent economic problems and calling for more regulation. In fact, further regulation can only make things worse.

Stock Market Pauses Ahead of Tuesdays Presidential Election / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Harry_Boxer

We got basically what we thought we would on Monday -- a quieter session, lower volume, and slightly lower prices. There was a little bit of afternoon volatility, but for the most part the indices opened mixed, worked their way sharply higher initially, and then went into a couple-hour consolidation. It looked like that they maybe would try to break out, but when they failed to break through on two different occasions they then rolled over in the afternoon. Then they retested Friday afternoon's lows and the rising trendlines, bounced sharply, but in the last 10 minutes once again slipped sharply lower and gave back half the late rally, closing negative on the session.

Stocks Bear Market How Low Could it Go? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we stated last October (the month of the stock market's peak); “the stock market is a sideshow, it can adjust to the economic reality very quickly as it did in 1929 (especially with credit losses already in place).” Only misconceptions about the Great Depression cause a dismissal of the similarities. Commodities are correcting sharply as forecast. The U.S. Dollar has gained double-digits against other currencies while the Yen is “ soaring to 13 year highs .” The U.S. stock market (DJIA) has fallen below the ‘ line in the sand ' described in March. And European countries are faring much worse as expected . Even our forecast for Mega Thrift is becoming more plausible.

Explosive Stocks Bear Market Rally Testing Resistance / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOh how sweet it was for the bulls with one hour to go. All three major indexes, including the two most important, the Nas and Sp, we're well above their 20 day exponential moving averages. The bears were staring at a situation they probably didn't think humanly possible when they woke up Monday morning this past week. The market had exploded up and was now testing the area where all bear market rallies go home to die a quick, painful death or better known as those 20 day moving averages.

Stock Market Short-term Rally to be followed by New Bear Market Low / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe American economy continues to contract. Construction levels are declining. Building permits, which are a gauge of future activity, fell to 786,000 in September from 857,000 in August. In September industrial production suffered its biggest decline since the recession of 1974-5. This broad based weakness suggests that the recession will be deep.

Stocks Bear Market Building a Base for Relief Rally / 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 earlier than anticipated and if they make their lows when expected, the bear market which started in October 2007 should continue until 2012-2014.

SPX: Intermediate trend - Potential lows were made in October. A pull-back into November is probable, and new lows are still possible.

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

FTSE 100 Stock Market Index Forecast Year End Rally / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs per several requests for a stock market analysis update, here is my current summary outlook for the FTSE 100 Stock Market Index. The FTSE 100 index has continued to build a base following the Great Crash of 2008 that took the index to a low of 3665, having since recovered to 4383, up 718 points / 19.5% in just 5 days. Whilst the day to day volatility has presented short-term traders with great opportunities however it has left long-term investors shell shocked.

Gold Sell Signal as Oversold Stock Markets Turn Bullish / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon’t trust the Text Books - On reflection, there may be more to what is happening on the markets than meets the eye. For one thing, the gold price – the ultimate harbinger of fear in the economy – is stubbornly refusing to rise to new heights, and its oscillator has given a sell signal.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe good news is: With a 19.9% advance in the last 4 trading days the Russell 2000 (R2K) is only 0.1% below the popular definition of a bull market.

Stock Markets Staring into the Abyss / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Colin_Twiggs

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Paradox Of Thrift - A common topic of discussion in the media is the paradox of thrift — a term coined by John Maynard Keynes to describe the negative effect of increased savings on consumption. When threatened by recession we tend to consume less and save more. Keynes argued that the decrease in consumption has the effect of lengthening the recession. While accepted by many economists, this reasoning has a basic flaw. It assumes that savings and investment are independent of each other. In an ideal market-driven financial system, the two are directly linked, with savings financing new investment. An increase in savings would mean that interest rates are likely to fall. Falling interest rates would encourage new investment, more than offsetting the initial reduction in consumption.

The Financial Crisis Next Shoe to Drop / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo many, things are starting to look rosier.  Bank liquidity flows are starting to improve ... not great, but showing some improvement. 

At the same time ... Bush knows it hasn't been enough of an improvement, so he warned banks that they better start opening up the lending spigots.  Banks are afraid, risk averse, and resisting.  Twenty five percent of "excellent credit rating borrowers" are being declined when trying to get a new car loan.  Next, I expect that Bush will push the bank Regulatory Agencies to put a lot of pressure on banks to start lending.

Stock Markets Rise Wall of Worry as Consumer Spending Slumps / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe consumer votes “ No Confidence .” - “The October survey recorded the largest monthly decline in consumer confidence in the history of the surveys. “Consumer confidence had already declined by mid 2008 by more than prior to any past recession and the steep October loss indicates that accelerated cutbacks in spending can be expected during the months ahead,” according to Richard Curtin, the Director of the Reuters/University of Michigan Surveys of Consumers. Overall, the data indicate that this will be the bleakest holiday spending season since 1980. “Consumers held the least favorable assessments of their finances in more than a half century and viewed their job prospects more negatively than at any other time since the end of 1980,” according to Curtin.

Stocks Bear Market is Not Over More Selling Expected / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleReviewing the big-picture, monthly S&P 500 chart, let's notice that the monthly momentum (RSI) confirmed this month's (Oct '08) plunge and remains pointed straight down, which argues that the low has not yet been established. While the SPX -- and its corresponding ETF, the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) -- could rally a bit more based on my nearer-term oversold work, perhaps into the 1040-1060 area, the overall chart structure suggests very strongly that thereafter we should expect another vicious period of selling pressure that drives the SPX beneath the 2002 low at 768.60 prior to the emergence of a sustainable "bullish" period.

Stocks Bear Market Worst is Likely Behind Us / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: John_Derrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo get some perspective on the current market conditions, it may be helpful to look at what some bear markets of the past have looked like.

Below is a chart that goes back to 1940, and you can see that what we've recently gone through was the second-worst five-day period of time over the last 68 years. It was essentially a market crash. The only other thing that's really even close was the crash of 1987.

Stock Market Price Earnings Reversion Towards the Mean / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Hans_Wagner

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you want to beat the market, it is a good idea to learn how the Price Earnings ratio (PE ratio) is used. To investors the PE ratio is the most widely used indicator of the value of a stock and of the market. When the PE ratio of the market index such as the S&P 500 is high, it is considered a sign that the market may be over valued. On the other hand when the PE Ratio of the S&P 500 is low, it is normally a sign that the market is under valued. What is the PE Ratio telling us now?
