The Birth Pains of a New Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter what has seemed to many investors to be the “longest year”, stocks have been going through a volatile period which some interpret to be bearish. There are still many analysts who are quick to label the current market phase a temporary pause on the way to a bigger stock market cascade. Contrary to these expectations, the market tape is sending a different message as we'll establish in this commentary.

It has been all too easy to dismiss the recent state of affairs in the financial markets as the start of a major bear market and economic depression. The pain that has been inflicted has left deep and abiding wounds that won't soon be forgotten by most investors. Making matters worse, every time a negative news event crosses the wires it adds to the widespread belief that the U.S., and indeed the emerging foreign powers, teeters on the brink of a major financial catastrophe.

Stock Market Mega-Trends August 2008 / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Hans_Wagner

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 Liquidity Which Way Will it Break? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday's charts show the inflows and outflows of liquidity into the stock market.  When inflows are trending up and positive (in expansion), the competition for stocks becomes high and prices are bid up causing an upside rally.

The opposite happens when we see liquidity outflows and a trending down pattern.  When this is happening with outflows in contraction territory , the balance shifts to a selling competition where investors try to get the best price before expectations of lower movement.  This causes a condition that ends up in a market correction.

Profit from the BRICs Investing: India and China / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Global investors need to “hit the BRICs” – literally. Back in 2003, the Goldman Sachs Group Inc. ( GS ), eager to push its clients towards global investing – especially in the emerging markets – invented the acronym “ BRIC ” (Brazil, Russia, India and China) to represent the four emerging markets it believed were destined to become dominant economies in the years to come.

Where Next for Gold, Stocks and Bonds? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHmmm? Seems like the gold price itself doesn't agree with the experts views on where it's headed. That's the problem with sticking your neck out. When you get it right you're a genius. The problem arises when you get it wrong.

Unfortunately, at the end of the day, there are no certainties. It's all about a balance of probabilities.

The Light at the End of the Tunnel of the Financial Crisis? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Adam_Perl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCovered bonds to stimulate the housing sector, GDP of 1.9%, Jobless claims of 448,000 and unemployment that reached a new level of 5.7% - those were just a few of the things that painted the screens red last week, as the major indices erased Monday and Tuesday's bullish sentiment, showing optimists that it is still to early to jump for joy. In addition to the data released in the U.S, showing a dire situation, global economies continue to lag behind the US , affected by high inflation and slow economic growth. Taking a glance at the chart below, one can see that five of the main economies are still showing real negative growth, due to high inflation, accompanied by high unemployment.

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

The euro, the yuan, the yen, and the dollar are The Four Tires Of The Apocalypse , an event that recently appears to have come out of nowhere. It didn't. Its apparently sudden appearance is new only to those who wished to see otherwise.

Credit Crunch Anniversary and Mega Trends Investing / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe 'official' anniversary of the credit crunch is linked to when the European Central Bank stepped in to provide an unprecedented amount of liquidity by pumping in $130 billion into the European banking system following news of the French bank Paribas freezing three of its hedge funds due to exposure to the US subprime mortgage market as panicking investors had been dumping holdings of mortgage lenders and mortgage backed derivatives and so began the self feeding credit crunch cycle of mortgage backed losses leading to asset price deflation leading to further tightening of the money markets as banks sought to hoard cash, as they lost confidence in their pricing models of the products they were trading with one another, which is more or less where we are today as the derivatives market continues to deleverage.

French Economic Reforms Improve Appeal of Cheap French Stocks / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: French investments might have seemed like a bad idea for the first nine months of French President Nicolas Sarkozy's term. After his election in May 2007, Sarkozy looked like a huge disappointment - unless you REALLY enjoy tabloid stories. He divorced his wife, married the spectacularly beautiful ex-model Carla Bruni, and went on an enviable honeymoon in Egypt - but appeared to do nothing useful about France's economic problems.

Worthless AAA CDO's Hit National Bank of Australia, 90% Debt Writedowns / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonday's trading on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) was a real humdinger. It started off with the White House announcing that this year's fiscal deficit would soar to a new record of nearly $500 billion. That was followed by news of rising oil prices, weak quarterly earnings and a slowdown in consumer spending. Plunk, plunk, plunk; one domino after another. By mid-morning the markets were in full retreat. That's when investment giant Merrill Lynch announced that it would notch a $4.6 billion second-quarter loss and write-downs of $9.4 billion on collateralized debt obligations (CDOs) and other mortgage-related assets.

General Motors Massive Loss Signals US Already In Recession / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs GM goes…so goes the rest of the country. This axiom has been repeated as far back as I can remember. More recently, the use of that phrase has been scaled back to describe Michigan's situation , as Toyota Motors took the lead dog position in the U.S. auto industry.

Today, General Motors Corp., scrambling to adjust its operations and align production toward smaller cars, reported another massive loss as the auto-buying public's shift away from its profitable truck and SUV lines gathered momentum. The losses totaled $15.5 billion, more than $27.33 per share, compared to a share price of $10.69 at this writing. The math just doesn't look very good.

New Investment Era, Contracting Earnings and PE Reversion Below the Mean / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week I am in Maine on vacation with my son, and next week is my daughter Tiffani's wedding, so for the next two weeks I am going to send an updated version of a speech I have been giving the past few months on what I think is the likely potential for the rise of a brand new asset class. It is too long to be sent as one letter, so we will start with the first part today and finish with the second part next week. This first part can be read as a standalone letter.

The Rise of A New Asset Class

I think we're at a watershed moment, what Peter Bernstein defines as an "epochal event," with the very order of the investment world changing as it did in 1929, in '50, in 1981, where a number of things came together - it wasn't just one thing but a number of events happening that conspired to change the nature of what worked in the investment world for the next period of time.

By: William_R_Thomson


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnthony: I'm delighted to welcome such a strong panel - a mark of how seriously you gentlemen view the current global financial and economic situation. It's especially pleasing to welcome back some old friends - Marc Faber, Mark Mobius, Ethan Harris and William Thomson.

Overview - Since the sub-prime mortgage crisis burst upon the US a year ago, there have been market rallies and claims that the worst is over, only to be followed by fresh plunges in values and sentiment. Are we near the bottom now, or just at the start of a long, slow meltdown? Our experts take the latter view.
