Investors Gripped by Fear of Potential Financial Markets Meltdown / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Dr_William_R_Swagell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleScared? You Should Be.

I wonder if any member of the Federal Reserve almost choked on his barbecued brisket when world financial markets threatened to go into meltdown while Wall Street was closed over the Martin Luther King Holiday.

On “ Black Tuesday ” January 22nd, 2008 world markets crashed...Australia down 7%, Japan down 5.7%, Shanghai down 7.2%, Jakarta down 7.7%, Hang Seng down 8.7%, FTSE down 5.5%, Paris and Frankfurt down 7%. These drops were on top of earlier falls since January 1st which had Germany down 19%, London down 13%, Hong Kong down 13%, Japan down 16% and saw Emerging Markets also hit by double-digit losses. The Australian market was down a bruising 24% from its high last November.

Stock Market Awaiting Economic Signals and Follow-Through / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Taking a cue from my old DJ days, this past week could be summed in a couple of tracks from some scratchy wax – Give The People What They Want and More, More, More. The Fed has cut rates by 125 basis points with the most recent 50bp cut in less than 10 days – and once done, the markets were wondering if there would be another 50bp cut before their next meeting at the end of March. It took the Fed a full month in Jan 2001 to cut rates by 150bp – in the midst of the beginning phase of a recession.

Stock and Financial Markets Major Dangers! Massive Opportunities! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen the number registrants for our recent online conference eclipsed the 25,000 mark, I was naturally surprised. It was the most widely attended event of its kind in history.

But I am not surprised to see that many of the changes we talked about are unfolding so quickly — new highs in gold, the worst job losses in four years, the biggest consumer retrenchment since 9/11, and the most rapid collapse of bond ratings of all time.

Stock Markets Cleanse House of Speculative Positions / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFree-Market Dynamics vs. Statist Intervention In this particular round (likely the start of the 15 th ), one may assume that at present, the round is even on points. Free Market Dynamics have scored in breaching some minor structural under-pinning's of the artificially-engineered perennial Bull - and the Statists have scored in response - thus far placing a perceived “floor” against the free markets natural propensity to adequately cleanse abuse and excess.

Looking Past the Current Stock Market Crisis for Strong Financial's / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe news keeps getting more disturbing for America's financial system.

Just minutes after the US Federal Reserve slashed rates by half a point this week, the market turned its focus to an announcement by Fitch that it was slashing ratings of major bond insurance group Financial Guaranty Insurance Company (FGIC), triggering fears that it had others in its sights as well. That was compounded by the horrific fourth quarter earnings turned in by rival insurer MBIA, which was forced to defend itself against rumors that it could be headed toward insolvency.

Manipulation of US Employment Statistics - Revision Higher Next Month? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMinimizing the (un)employment report - The Bureau of Labor Statistics released its January Employment Situation Report. According to the BLS, the employment situation was “essentially unchanged.” Buried in the report was the offhand mention that we had “a small January movement in nonfarm payroll employment (-17,000).” Small movement? The expectations were for a 70,000 increase!

Omitted from the report was the CES Birth/Death Model , which normally puts a positive spin on the employment report. Not this time! According to this model, all sectors of the economy suffered losses, with the grand total 378,000 jobs lost in January. Maybe this is a statistical fluke, but you can imagine some bureaucrat storming into the statisticians' offices and saying, “Fix it!” There will be revisions in next month's report.

Stock Market Tug o' War Between Bulls and Bears / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

If the palpable struggle between the bulls and bears was not obvious this week, from early on Monday, through the Fed announcement, and right up to Friday's close … I'm not sure you're paying attention. But even if you could feel the tension, there's nothing like a few charts to really spell out the situation.

The Stock Market - FTSE Bull or Bear? / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Fat_Prophets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far, 2008 has been an extraordinary year for investors. Sharp falls in December and January, which culminated in last Tuesday morning's panic selling, saw the FTSE100 down more than 20 percent from October highs. This supposed magic 20 percent figure sparked widespread talk of an 'official bear market'. But for the remainder of the week, the market rallied, thus pulling us out of bear market territory. Does this mean we're back in a bull market?

"On the one hand we have a contracting global credit bubble and on the other we have the US authorities manning the liquidity pumps to stimulate a flagging economy. "

US Banking System Teetering on the Brink of Collapse / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSomebody goofed. When Fed chairman Ben Bernanke cut interest rates to 3% yesterday, the price of a new mortgage went up. How does that help the flagging housing industry?

About an hour after Bernanke made the announcement that the Fed Funds rate would be cut by 50 basis points the yield on the 30-year Treasury nudged up a tenth of a percent to 4.42%. The same thing happened to the 10 year Treasury which surged from a low of 3.28% to 3.73% in less than a week. That means that mortgages which are priced off long-term government bonds---will be going up, too.

Stock Market Investment Buying Opportunity of a Lifetime! / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: No, I'm not talking about U.S. stocks! Despite yesterday's half point rate cut from the Fed, my stance on the U.S. economy and stock market has not changed. And I hope you've listened to my suggestion to shed most of your U.S. stocks, with the exception of select gold miners and natural resource plays.

But what about China? China's stock market has fallen as much as 32% since its recent peak, begging the questions ...

Banking Index and Shanghai Stock Market Index at Critical Levels / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have previously pointed out that the financial and banking sectors are very important relative to the S&P 500 for a very good reason ... and the reason is that financial's make up 20% of all the S&P 500 stocks.

So, the first chart we will look at today is the Banking Index.  The Index has been in a bear market since February of 2007 when it dropped from its peak.  Like all down trends, the index has continued to make Lower/Highs and Lower/Lows.

PANDEMONIUM! - US Financial Markets in Uproar After Fed Loses All Traction / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom Merriam Webster's Online Dictionary: Pandemonium. noun; Etymology: New Latin, from Greek pan- + daimo-n evil spirit — more at demon . Date: 1667. 1: the capital of Hell in Milton's "Paradise Lost." 2: the infernal regions: hell . 3: not capitalized : a wild uproar : tumult .

On Wednesday January 30, 2008, the last stops to a total collapse of the US financial structure were pulled out. The elevator cable is now cut, with the elevator carriage at the 45th floor of a 50-floor skyscraper. If you believe you can "jump" to avoid getting crushed when the carriage hits the concrete floor below - good luck!

US Fed 0.50% Rate Cut Fails to Boost a Fragile Stock Market / Stock-Markets / US Interest Rates

By: Donald_W_Dony

The aggressive 50bps Fed rate cut and the finishing negative numbers points to the deep fragility of the stock market. As the rate now sits at 3%, this leaves very little room for the Fed to cut any further. This is particularly concerning as the new bear market has potentially 18-30 months of additional downward pressure on the stock market and the economy.

Greenspans Unbelievable Response to Financial Market Turmoil Due to Formation of His Bubbles / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you read the media article below (Greenspan interview) in context of an understanding that “energy drives the economy”, and in context of the rising trendline of the PMO oscillator on the 30 year Bond Yield monthly chart, you have to agree with Greenspan.

The third quote highlighted is almost unbelievable in its disingenuousness. The man is either unbelievably stupid or unbelievably dishonest or unbelievably obtuse. But the emphasis is on the word “unbelievable”. How else could these bubbles have formed, Mr Greenspan? Please explain.

Nasdaq Bullish Ahead of Fed Interest Rate Decision - Long the QQQQ's / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

So far the first hour of trading has expanded the "inside triangle" in the Q's (Nasdaq: QQQQ) towards a test of yesterday's high at 44.72, which so far has contained the early strength. In the aftermath of the minor rally from 44.00 to 44.61, micro support on any pullback now becomes 44.40, then 44.20/00, which must hold to avert a decline that expands the trading range to the downside (a nasty whipsaw that could in fact be in the cards ahead of, and possibly immediately after, the FOMC decision). For the time being, I will remain long, looking for additional strength that pops the Q's above 44.72 on the way to 45.00 before Fed time.
