Hyperinflation- The High Road To Hell / Stock-Markets / Inflation

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf that's where we are going, which appears to be the case depending on your perspective, we might as well take the high road (meaning via hyperinflation), as at least this way our feet are more likely to stay dry during the trip. Isn't this a much better rationale to justify why we humans are in such a hurry to use up the non-renewable resources that are key to our survival? Moreover, isn't it a better way of accounting for why central planners are allowed to debase our currencies / economies than simple greed and ignorance, because even at a slower pace, the oil will be gone soon enough anyway. Here, the assumption is our population bubble is function of easily accessible liquid crude oil, and that once supplies become increasingly strained (as in Peak Oil ), so will our survival. Naturally, most people, who have what they would term an ‘optimistic view' of the future, shun such thinking, dismissing it as pessimism entertained by the ‘lunatic fringe'.

Stock Market Update: Survival of the Unbiased Trader / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

I'm sure a few heads were turned when I first posted the chart above, which suggests the S&P could rally to 1430 before finally deciding whether this is a bull or bear market. What makes this chart great is it underscores the nature of unbiased trading: no matter what your personal convictions are, or your interpretation of economic data, the market has not decided bull or bear and neither has the unbiased trader.

This week's 5 percent jump in Thailand rice takes prices to $1,000 a ton, nearly triple their level at the start of the year, intensifying fears of social unrest in Asia .

Worst of the Credit Crisis May be over as Investors Switch from Bonds to Equities on Inflation Concerns- Part 2 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Click Here for Part 1

Financial Times: Treasury market mood swings
“The vanguard of US monetary policy, the Treasury bond market, is calling time on further interest rate cuts after next week.

“While many economists expect the US Federal Reserve to continue to cut the benchmark Fed funds rate to 1.5% from the current 2.25%, recent shifts in the interest rate-sensitive 2-year Treasury bond yield suggest another course.

Worst of the Credit Crisis May be over as Investors Switch from Bonds to Equities on Inflation Concerns - Part 1 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe last week was characterized by investors increasingly taking the view that the worst of the credit crisis was over. They seemed to be shrugging off further substantiation of the dreadful state of the US housing situation, as they digested the latest round of quarterly earnings reports. The latter ranged from plunging profits from Bank of America (ANC) to a dreadful report from Ambac (ABC) to guidance from Microsoft (MSFT) that failed to live up to investors' expectations.

Stock markets see-sawed as investors assimilated the various economic and earnings reports, with the S&P 500 Index eventually eking out a positive return of 0.5% for the week, thereby consolidating the previous week's gains (+4.3%).

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: The market has been in a pattern of higher highs and higher lows for over a month now.

Short Term
The chart below covers the past 100 trading days showing the NASDAQ composite (OTC) in blue and an indicator showing the percentage of the last 3 trading days that the NASDAQ AD line (OTC ADL) was up in brown.

Powerful Stocks Bull Market As US Hyper Power Prepares for Global Hegemony / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clive_Maund

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in the late 20th century there were predictions that the 21st century would be characterized by “resource wars” where fighting breaks out between countries and aligned groups of countries, as they scramble to secure increasingly scarce commodities for themselves, principally oil and water. Barely had we entered the new century when a major resource war began, with the big surprise being that it was not some banana republic suddenly deciding to invade and loot its neighbor's territory, but instead the most powerful country on earth muscling its way around an entire region on the other side of the planet in order to position itself to plunder its oil resources en masse for itself.

How to Survive a Recession and Make Profits / Stock-Markets / Recession

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite frantic efforts by the US Government and central bank to avoid a recession during a Presidential election year, the US is heading for a protracted recessionary period that is expected to be worse than the last two recessions as the credit crisis and housing bust continue.

The focus for investors now should be to realise that what worked during the 2003 to 2007 stocks bull market is expected to and actually is unraveling as the boom sectors such as financial's are in a bear market.

Looking for Russell 2000 Index Breakout to Kick In / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

know what some of you must be thinking: why am I wasting my time in the IWM? Aside from the fact that I really like the upside potential of its 4 month base-like pattern, I also think that if Fed stimulus is going to "kick in" during Q3 and Q4, and if the narrowing of some of the credit spreads recently is any indication that fears of market risk are subsiding, then the small cap sector will benefit, although it has been lagging a bit.

Chinese Government Intervention Sends Shanghai Stocks Soaring / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Jason_Simpkins

Stock prices soared in China yesterday (Thursday) after the government announced Wednesday night that a tax on stock trades would be reduced. Beijing's decision to lower the trade tax from 0.3% to 0.1% was motivated by a steep drop in many mainland indices over the past six months.

Why Utilities Stocks Beat Treasury Bonds / Stock-Markets / US Utilities

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNilus Mattive writes:I recently read an article on Forbes' website that attempted to help income investors compare the merits of utility stocks and U.S. Treasury bonds.

On the bad news side, the column noted that the yields on both utility shares and 10-year Treasuries are down about 50% since the beginning of 1995. Ouch!

Stock Market on Route to Recovery / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy now it should be abundantly clear to even the most recalcitrant pessimists that the stock market is well along its route to recovery. The internal momentum structure hasn't looked this promising in weeks if not months. When it comes to evaluating the stock market's potential, internal momentum always precedes future price momentum and takes precedence over nearly every other consideration.

Retail Stocks ETF Punches Through Resistance / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This is what I wrote for subscribers yesterday about the Retail HLDRs ETF (AMEX: RTH), and there is no change in my outlook right now: The RTH appears to me to have ratcheted up into a higher trading plateau between 93.00 and 96.00 from 92.00 to 96.00, as the price structure pushes towards a confrontation with a cluster of resistance that is represented by its 9-month down trendline, the declining 200-day moving average, and a 5-month plateau of prior failed rally peaks at 96.00/65.

Nasdaq Q's Look Poised to Reach Next Upside Target / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

All of the action from Monday's high in the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) at 47.08 appears to be carving out some sort of rest-digestion pattern that exhibits a double-peak at 47.08-47.06 juxtaposed against a series of higher lows off of yesterday's low at 45.93. Based on the developing near-term pattern, the Q's remain above 46.50 into the closing bell, and either thrust towards my next optimal target within the final 40 minutes of trading or in reaction to AAPL earnings in the aftermarket.

Russell 2000 To Test Support and then Rally / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Thus far, the iShares Russell 2000 Small-Cap ETF (AMEX: IWM) has retraced 62% of its prior upmove from 68.16 to 72.27 and although the intensity of the sell-off is pressing the hourly RSI into oversold territory, my sense from the way the pattern is unfolding is that the IWM will test the March-April support line, now in the vicinity of 69.40/35 -- prior to my expectation of a potent upside pivot reversal that initiates a new upleg.

Stock Market Update: Hitting on All Cylinders / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

In a period that had many traders guessing about earnings and the economy, TTC canceled out the noise last week and booked steady gains by doing what we always do: trading the charts. As the headlines raised the specter of economic depression and an earnings recession, the tape was hinting all along that the market wanted higher. And just as the majority of traders were fooled, the market screamed up to where it's been saying it was going all along.

Commercial Banks Heading for Huge Derivatives Losses- Credit Crisis Turning into Credit Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile most investors are focused on the latest stock market rally, hidden from view is a monumental change that few recognize and fewer understand: Unprecedented amounts of old debts are coming due in America, and many are not getting refinanced.

Even worse, borrowers are going into default, lenders are taking huge losses, and outstanding loans are turning to dust.
