Profit From the Trillion Dollar U.S. Budget Deficit / Stock-Markets / US Debt

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The federal budget deficit hasn't received a lot of press lately, what with all the worries about the U.S. financial system, the home mortgage market, and the rescues that might be necessary to save both.  In fact, it's a bad sign, since the Bush administration and the Democrats in Congress have joint responsibility for keeping the budget deficit under control, so they would both be crowing about it if they were doing a good job.

Unwinding Yen Carry Trade Feeding Stocks Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: Richard_Gorton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe yen carry trade unwound as Martin Crutsinger Associated Press related the National Association of Realtor Report that sales of existing homes fell more sharply than expected in June. Sales dropped by 2.6 percent last month to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.86 million units which left sales 15.5 percent below where they were a year ago. The drop in sales pushed inventories of unsold single-family homes and condominiums to 4.49 million units. That represented a 11.1 month supply at the June sales pace, the second highest level in the past 24 years.

Brazils' Stock Market Bubble Has Burst / Stock-Markets / Brazil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Since its July 15 low, the iShares Brazil ETF (AMEX: EWZ) was up 2.5% through yesterday's close whereas the SPY was up 6.7%. In addition, the pattern carved out by the EWZ has taken the shape of a bearish coil, which warns me to expect another bout of weakness.

FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair Is Out Of Control / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a sad twist of irony Shelia Bair is accusing blogs of being "out of control". Sadder still is the fact that San Francisco Business Times writer Mark Calvey agrees. Please consider the incredibly inane article FDIC learns it ignores bloggers at its peril .

The federal agency insuring bank deposits learned that it can't afford to ignore the blogs following its seizure this month of IndyMac Bank, the largest bank failure since the 1980s.

Oil and Food Prices Falling, Real Estate Stabilizing, Stocks Soaring, Crisis Over? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImagine the following: The price of oil falls back to $107 ... gas prices drop to say, $3.50 a gallon or lower ... and food prices decline 10% or even 20%.

Simultaneously, the real estate market stabilizes. Foreclosures peak ... new and existing home sales pick up ... and consumers start spending again, opening up their wallets and purses.

Panic Building on Wall Street / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore getting into this missive, I would like to state that other silver commentators make a very strong case for silver being a metal that does well in good, prosperous times. I absolutely agree. If the world at large were gaining in real wealth and the economy were humming along, we all might be purchasing flat screen TV's and using even more silver than we do today. Bottom line, silver does not need bad times to do well.

China's Government Set on Making Stock Market Bottom / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: For thousands of years, China was ruled by dynasty after dynasty before finally becoming a republic in 1912. In 1949, the Communist People's Republic of China was formed after the defeat of the Nationalist forces. And in 1978, Deng Xiaoping ascended to power and began a series of economic reforms.

Banking Crisis Alert -How Safe is Your Bank / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSunday's headline coming out of Washington was :"Paulson braces public for months of tough times"
Paulson had these comments:"I think it's going to be months that we're working our way through this period -- clearly months," "The number of troubled banks will increase as they struggle to cope with big losses on bad mortgages."

In one breath, he was telling Americans to "brace themselves for tough times ahead".  In the next breath, he was essentially saying, don't worry, the US Banking system is sound.

Bailouts Mean US Tax Payers Pay for the Mistakes of Rich Bankers / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith all that's happened with the real estate and banking crisis, the word “bailout” has been plastered throughout the media with little discussion of exactly what a bailout entails. Supplying money to a distressed company does not by itself represent a bailout. It all depends on where the money is coming from, and whether or not a moral hazard has been created.

Investment Strategies to Exploit Current Macroeconomic Trends / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have several investment strategies in play to exploit the macroeconomic trends that continue to unfold. Many of these strategies have paid off handsomely – shorting the financials, homebuilders, and mortgage companies – and playing the market trading ranges. While I feel there is still more to be made by shorting the financials, the fact is that shorting strategies are not suitable for many investors. Here, I attempt to provide some more practical guidance for everyday investors. As you will see, I gradually progress into more sophisticated strategies. You need to determine what the best approach is for you based upon your risk tolerance, investment needs and horizon.

Dubai's Oil Boom Financial Centre Heading for Bust? / Stock-Markets / Middle East

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Martin Hutchinson writes: Dubai has plenty of qualities that catch an investor's eye.

  • The emirate has the world's only (self-proclaimed) 7-star hotel.

Investing Lessons for Today From Japans Lost Decade of Economic Depression / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: A "Lost Decade" doesn't have to translate into lost profit opportunities. As the global financial crisis continues to escalate, the United States is increasingly facing the prospect of a long malaise that could easily eclipse Japan's Lost Decade of the 1990s in both duration and depth.

And history shows that such periods can be the worst for investors to navigate - especially when they follow a record stock-market run, such as the all-time-highs that U.S. share prices reached last fall.

Bullish Countertrend Rally Developing in Dow Stocks Index / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My pattern and momentum work on the 4-hour Dow Diamonds (AMEX: DIA) price action off of the July 15 low argues that the upleg from the 108.33 low to the 115.65 high (7/21) represents the initial recovery rally leg, and that the weakness into today's low at 113.80 represents a shallow correction of that initial upleg.

The Mother of All Short Squeezes in Financial Stocks.. / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow do you spell short-selling rally, gentle reader? In this week's Outside the Box we look at several short items (pardon the pun) from various sources, which paint a not pretty picture. The first hit my inbox this morning from Art Cashin (of CNBC fame and also Head Floor Trader for UBS).

" Deconstructing The Rally – The sharp rally that sprang from the new short sale restrictions has been spiky and, in several ways, very powerful. The impact of the short rule change was evident. As Barron's notes, the 150 stocks with the heaviest short interest rallied a stunning 15%. The stocks with the smallest short positions rose only 2%. That may be a function of existing shorts scrambling to cover to pass the new, belated, scrutiny. That thesis got added weight from a couple of areas. The Merrill Lynch results got mostly panned by several analysts and TV pundits. Nonetheless, the stock closed 24% above its lows for the week. Also, the financial sector ETF rose nearly 25% from the lows.

United States Unfolding Financial and Economic Nightmare / Stock-Markets / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin D. Weiss writes: The rally you saw last week was little more than a normal, bear-market bounce — predicated on the myth of government omnipotence ... spurred by the blind faith in fiat money ... and triggered by the official attacks on short-sellers.

For investors who jump into financial and other vulnerable stocks now, it's a trap door. But for those who feel like they're still stuck in all the stocks we've been telling you to get rid of, it's an escape hatch. Use it as your selling opportunity. And don't look back.

Stock Markets Endure Another Volatile Week / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

Markets endured another volatile week, with US markets had a better time of it than their European counterparts. There were some clear psychological levels in play last week, as markets fell to fresh multi year lows, before recovering in the second half of the week. The Dow hit 11,000 for the first time since July 2006, and the S&P 500 hit 1,200 for the first time since October 2005. The CAC came close to hitting 4,000 for the first time since May 2005, the Dax hit 6000 for the first time since October 2006, and the FTSE reached its lowest point for over three years.

S&P Fails to Break Inverted Head & Shoulders Neckline Resistance / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In a bull market environment, the picture of the S&P 500 & its SPY ETF, as viewed by the e-Mini S&P 500 chart, would be very different. Let's notice that today's new recovery high at 1269 looks like it could have been an upside breakout from a base-like pattern that resembles an "inverted head-and-shoulders," doesn't it?

The Most Important Chart In the Investment Universe! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany people are now being rudely awakened from slumber with respect to the effects on prices resulting from inflation , even if they only see the effects (rising prices) and not the cause. More specifically, as the cost of energy shoots higher, the lights are finally coming on for many consumers previously in the dark about what lies ahead. They are beginning to realize that even if prices come down from these lofty levels, they will still be high, never mind about going even higher. So, this realization is beginning to change a lot of attitudes, attitudes that were previously reluctant to accept the reality of the situation. Given, it's taking a lot of doing (i.e. oil at $140, etc.), but one would need be ‘brain dead' not to see (feel) the effects of escalating energy and food prices on personal budgets. Denial has worked for many up to this point, but many in this group will also be the ones panicking later on when they finally accept reality.
