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

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

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

By: Mick_Phoenix

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to the Weekly Report. This week we look at the end of Fannie and Freddie and ponder why PIMCO are screaming for help.

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.

Gold Boosted by the Greatest Financial Collapse in History / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold Bugs, this week around the world, will be joining together to celebrate the greatest financial collapse in history, past or future. In bureaucrat-speak, a conservatorship for FNM & FRE is being created. However, Gold Bugs know a duck when they see one. 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.

Financial Markets Boyz are Back in Town / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: Dominick

Volume finally started to pick up this week, but it was all downhill for several days after opening Tuesday morning over 1300 on the S&P 500. Though we had some targets for a move higher, we've been skeptical of gap openings in either direction for the past several months and, as usual, looked to see the market set up a trade for us rather than guessing or assuming. The last two updates included important numbers we'd use to gauge price action and plan our trades. Among them were 1306, 1264, and 1292.

Global Stock Markets, Commodities, and the Economic Downturn / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Tim_Wood

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in 2006 and 2007 everywhere we turned we heard about China and their enormous consumption of commodities and why the Chinese were largely responsible for fueling the commodity boom. During this same time, we were seeing one of the longest extensions of the 4-year cycle in US stock market history. Then, between July and October of 2007 we began to see a Dow theory non-confirmation occur. By November this non-confirmation had evolved into a full blown orthodox Dow theory bearish trend change.

Counter Trend Stock Index Futures Position Trading / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: Joseph_Russo

Semi-Generational Long Haul is Toast: For one reason or another, Fibonacci time intervals of 34-units have maintained an excellent record of accomplishment over the past 150 years in identifying semi-generational peaks and troughs in the major equity indices. 1857-1891, 1932-1966, and 1974-2008 each represent 34-year long-haul bull market runs, all of which ended with 3, 5, or 8 years of bear market declines. If 150-years of pristine history are any guide, the current bear market will (at minimum) continue running its course through 2011, 2013, or 2016 prior to an absolute low marking its eventual bottom.

Stocks Bear Market is Smashing Everything- Shorting the Rallies / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Thursday the DOW fell over 300 points. I made a killing on my short positions, but gold stocks fell hard too. Luckily I got stopped out for a small loss the day before, but nonetheless I don't like seeing gold and commodities drop at all here. The bear is acting worse than even I had expected and is now smashing everything in sight.

Stock Market Panics Into September, a Historically Bad Month / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany reports have been published over the past few days about stock market seasonality and, specifically, about September typically being the worst month of the year.

I included the following paragraph in a recent post : “Seasonality indicates that ‘September has firmly secured the rank as the worst month of the year' ( Stock Trader's Almanac ), but that a year-end rally typically starts in late September / early October.”
