Stock, Commodities and Currency Futures Markets Analysis / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe September NASDAQ 100 posted an inside day with a higher close on Wednesday as it consolidated some of Tuesday's decline but remains below broken support marked by July's low crossing at 1765.25. The low-range close sets the stage for a steady to lower opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold but remain neutral to bearish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near-term. If September extends this week's decline below July's low, March's low crossing at 1693.75 is the next downside target. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing near 1870.65 are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted.

Intraday Double-Bottom in SPY Stock Market Index / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) pressed lower than I thought was likely, the secondary low at 122.55 preserved this morning's pre-open LEH low at 122.47. The subsequent rally to 123.94 has left behind an intraday double-bottom that has power to revisit key near-term resistance at 124.00, which if hurdled should trigger continuation to 125.25/50 thereafter.

Globalist Ultimatum: Pay up or Collapse / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Patrick_Wood

There's going to be no end of controversy over the bailout of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.

On September 9, 2008, CNBC's popular financial show “ Squawk Box Europe ” interviewed Jim Rogers (CEO of Rogers Holding) on his view of the government takeover of Fannie and Freddie:

Stock Market Volume and Seasonal Trend Analysis / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor a good part of the summer, trading volume was exceptionally light on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE). This was largely influenced by the typical summer vacation season this year. For the better part of July and August, the absence of heavy trading activity coincided with a more or less listless stock market and even a mild interim rally in the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average.

Since returning from the summer vacation season, however, institutional traders have taken a good look at the market picture and evidently don't like what they see. This displeasure was manifested in the form of high-volume selling on Thursday, Sept. 4, which saw a upside-to-downside volume ratio on the NYSE of 1:13.

Nouriel Roubini Dead Wrong on Financial Markets Regulation / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we get to addressing Roubini's blaming of the mess we are in on "free-market laissez-faire" philosophy, let's take a look at calls for Paulson and Bernanke to resign, and one other post on "Socialism For The Rich".

Inquiring minds should consider Senator Bunning Says Paulson Acts Like Socialist, Should Resign .
Senator Jim Bunning said Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, by rescuing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, is acting like China's finance minister and both Paulson and Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke should step down.

The Bailout Plain Truth and the Silent Economic Depression / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy 2 cents on the Bailout
Without even looking, I’d be willing to guess that 2 out of 3 articles on most financial blogs are on the bailout of the GSEs. I’m willing to bet it will dominate headlines for months to come. Before I move on to more relevant material, I think Americans need to start asking some critical questions. If they were “too big to fail” as Paulson, Bush, Bernanke and other cronies insist, why were they allowed to operate with exemptions from the SEC Acts of 1933 and 1934? If they were “too big to fail” why didn’t Washington take over the GSEs in 2004 after the accounting fraud was detected. If they were “too big to fail” why were they transformed into shareholder firms with virtually no regulation, no accountability, no transparency and allowed to act irresponsibly? The implied backing by the government made it certain that a bailout was eminent. But doesn’t government backing also come with accountability?

BANKRUPT Banks Wiped Out by Tulip Backed Securities, Is China Cheap? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US governments takeover of the bankrupt Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac on Sunday is reminiscent of the UK governments nationalization of Northern Rock Bank, albeit the scale of Sundays takeover is of several orders of magnitude larger. Still the result is the same, total loss of capital for the shareholders. I won't repeat the dynamics of what has transpired on Sunday as the volume of similar articles speak for themselves.

Fannie and Freddie Just the Beginning of the Derivatives Deleveraging Bailout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a momentous weekend. I was pounding the table about the need to move quickly on Fannie and Freddie in my last few letters, and especially this last letter. And then they did it. There are a lot of details that have yet to come out, and it is likely to be far more expensive the Savings and Loan crisis was for the US taxpayer, but it did get done. Hopefully, we can get some real regulation for part of our costs, as well as get rid of the implicit guarantees by US taxpayers so that something like this never happens again. The fact that it did was the fault of the regulatory environment and Congress. They fired the heads of Fannie and Freddie (with multi-million dollar parting gifts), but sadly, the truly responsible parties will be re-elected to perpetrate yet more frauds.

Paulson Bailout of Freddie, Fannie and PIMCO Translated / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial Institutions Must Be Allowed To Fail

Paulson: "Homeowners should not anticipate a government bail-out. Banks should not expect to be bailed-out by government, despite intervention by the Federal Reserve in the near-collapse of Bear Stearns in March."

Translation: Critical banks and GSEs must not be allowed to fail.

Soaring Unemployment and Falling Asset Prices / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe unemployment rate soared to 6.1% in August, the highest rate in almost five years, as the economy took a turn for the worse. The rate has steadily climbed this year from a cycle low of 4.4%. The U.S. Department of Labor reports, “ The unemployment rate rose from 5.7 to 6.1 percent in August, and non- farm payroll employment continued to trend down (-84,000), the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. In August, employment fell in manufacturing and employment services, while mining and health care continued to add jobs. Average hourly earnings rose by 7 cents, or 0.4 percent, over the month.”

Bullish Healthy Sign for S&P 500 Stock Market Index / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

A wicked swoon during the second hour of trading in response to a rumor that United Airlines (UAUA) had filed for bankruptcy. That stock plunged from 12 to nearly 3 and took the overall market with it. The S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) plunged to 125.49, which represented nearly a 50% pullback (125.32) of the entire upmove from Friday's "Jobless low" at 122.00 to today's "Fannie Mae (FNM) high" at 128.62. Apart from the drama and vicious intraday action, purely from a technical perspective, the SPYs have corrected -- or partially corrected -- the initial upleg off of Friday's high-volume price low at an important support plateau -- and that is a very healthy sign so far.

Stock Market at Risk of Significant Decline Until the End of October / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

Long-term trend - The Dow Jones Industrials may be deviating from their typical decennial pattern in an election year. Important cycles going into the Fall could be the reason for this, but one also has to consider the possibility that the downward pressure from the 120-yr cycle, which is due to make its low in 2012-2014, has begun to take effect and that October 2007 was the top of the bull market. This is not yet confirmed and remains only a possibility.

SPX: Intermediate trend - Last week's action suggests that the intermediate trend correction has not yet run its course.

Stock Market Over Valued, Over Bought ETF's and Emerging Market Bargains / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBill King (The King Report): Albert Edwards – economic and equity market meltdown imminent
“Last week saw the publication of Q2 US whole economy profits data. They were shockingly bad. Core measures of profitability are in free-fall and have now reached a tipping point, where corporate activity could easily implode. We have also reached the point where companies give up ‘manipulating' their profits higher and admit they are actually in free-fall. A combination of economic and reported profits slumping will catalyse the next equity downleg.”

Financial Tsunami Sweeps Across World Economies / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors not only returned to a shortened trading week after the Labor Day holiday on Monday, but also to a bruising on stock markets, at least for those with long equity positions.

Concerns about the global economic outlook and continued financial duress spooked bourses around the world, with a number of other factors also adding to investors' nervousness. In particular, Pimco's Bill Gross, the manager of the world's largest bond fund, said the US needed to step up and buy assets to avoid a “financial tsunami” (Bill is renowned for talking his book on occasion!), Dwight Anderson's big Ospraie commodity hedge fund closed after suffering large losses, and Russia was selling foreign currency reserves to prop up the rouble after foreign capital fled the country following Russia's invasion of Georgia.

The End of Fannie and Freddie Pushes PIMCO into Deep Trouble! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

Regular readers may have noticed that the Weekly Report hasn't been available on the excellent Safehaven.com or The Market Oracle since July. Nothing sinister to report, I just thought that subscribers deserved a bit of added value and some excellent TA on the direction of gold.

Part of that celebration will be our heartfelt thanks for those at Federal Reserve. In this week's chart we recount the glory of that institution.

Paulson Moves to Prevent Financial System Collapse / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe GSE deal has been announced. Here is the Statement by Secretary Paulson on Treasury and FHFA Action to Protect Financial Markets and Taxpayers .

The title of the statement suggests two things.

1. This agreement will not reduce risk on the financial markets
2. This agreement will not protect the taxpayer

Let's take a look at excerpts to see how long it takes to verify that cynicism.

Government Manipulation Vs Market Forces / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJack Crooks writes: In America, times like these don't come around often. Usually, Americans are blessed with economic prosperity. Enduring periods of stagnant or shrinking economic growth are exceptions to the rule.

There's a big reason we've been so fortunate ... something often referred to as the market process. Contrary to what the current Federal Reserve or U.S. Treasury might have you believe, it is this naturally occurring progression that keeps the markets functioning the way they ought to function — free of interference.
