Ominous S&P 500 Stock Market Chart- Warning of Oct 2002 Target / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe very big picture of the S&P 500 chart -- (AMEX: SPY) for traders of the ETF -- shows the making of a giant double-top pattern that could be on the verge of downside acceleration that breaks the January low at 1270 and begins to fulfill its "natural potential" on the way towards a revisit of the 2002 low. Yes, that is an extreme forecast, but that is the look that this pattern exhibits. No, it will not happen in a straight line, and more than likely any decline in the SPX that violates the January 2008 low at 1270 will find support at the 50% support area of the entire 2002-2007 bull move, which is at 1174.00. Be that as it may, this is a very ominous longer-term chart picture.

Stock Market Forecast and Outlook for March 2008 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you want to beat the market, you need to invest with the trend. In looking at the trend, I believe 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. This is a normal part of the technical analysis.

Let's start with the long term view of the S&P 500. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) seems to be a good indicator of the cyclical bull and bear markets. In addition, the 78 week Exponential Moving Average (EMA) acts as support in a bull market and resistance in a bear market.

Capital and Debt Markets Crisis- Investors Four Critical Questions / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Doug_Wakefield

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoes tracking the major US equity markets give us a full grasp of the amount of risks in our capital markets?
Absolutely not. Consider this: Over the last 14 months, from the end of 2006 to the last day of February of 2008, the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the NASDAQ 100 are only down 1.58% and .63%, respectively. But, if we look at some of the major SECTORS of our economy, we get a different picture. For example, over the same timeframe, the retail index ($RLX) is down 22.85%, the housing index ($HGX) is down 42.55%, the brokerage index ($XBD) is down 24.90%, and the banking index ($BKX) is down 29.91%, while the healthcare index ($HCX) is only down 2.32%. So, four major areas of our economy are down substantially, and neither the Dow nor the NASDAQ 100 has reflected this reality.

Counter Trend Rally in Stock Market S&P 500 Index / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The plot thickens. In this morning's posting we discussed the likelihood of upside follow-through from yesterday's low at 1307.00 in the S&P 500 e-Mini contract, but that the index would have to hurdle and sustain above 1348.50 to trigger upside acceleration towards the op of the Feb-Mar range. As it turned ou, the e-SPH peaked so far at 1345.00 prior to its mid-session AMBAC swoon. More vital, however, is that the pattern carved out from 1307 to 1345 does NOT exhibit particularly bullish form.

Stocks on the Brink of a Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the end of January, I wrote the article entitled, A Probable Path Revealed . In that article, I suggested that the January23 rd low was just the ending of wave (i) of C. After a brief rally, I expected waves (iii), (iv) and (v) to proceed. Well, the rally wasn't brief. But it appears that wave (ii) is now complete. Rather that using Elliott Wave, I have been keeping a chart of the DJIA with the head-and-shoulders neckline (red), the trendline of the advance from March 2003 and the Fibonacci retracements. They tell a compelling story at a glance.

Financial Markets Investing- Exploring All The Possibilities / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThese are definitely interesting times we live in, and the markets are also in this category from a predictive standpoint. Many are now dependent on the stock market's performance, so the stakes are high on numerous fronts. And for this reason you not only have participants remaining invested far past what would have historically been viewed as ‘prudent', but master planners in our society feel justified in arriving at a desired outcome no matter the means. This of course often involves market manipulation in addition to a regular priming of the pump by influencing prices in the futures markets, which extends from currencies to foreign stock markets.

Epic Paradigm Shift Looms Against the Acceptance of Fiat Money / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAdaptive Trading and Investment Perspectives Since we first began offering our market forecasting and analysis services to the public some two years ago, Elliott Wave Technology has been strident in directing our clients focus and attention to the negative wealth effects that eroding fiat-currency's impose - along with the plausibility of epic consequence, if and when an inevitable paradigm shift against the acceptance of fiat-money were to ever reach critical mass. No matter where we are in a given investment cycle, we must first recognize the inherent nature of that environment, and then adapt our various investment postures with fitting perspective.

Credit Crisis Morphs Into Stagflation- Protect Your Wealth! / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe credit crunch that broke with the two hedge funds failing in July 2007 is now into its ninth month with announces losses / bad debt write downs of £163 billions. Way back in July the expectations were that sub prime related losses would be in the region of some $140billions. With some venturing as far as possibly suggesting losses of $200, with some mavericks venturing to as high as $400 billion which was larger than that of the Savings and Loans crisis of $160 billions that required a US Tax Payer bailout of $124billions. The article of July 07 (Hedge Fund Sub prime Credit Crunch to Impact Interest Rates ) pointed out that the consequences of the credit crunch would be the worlds central banks ratcheting up money supply growth and making deep cuts in interest rates despite the inflationary consequences as the Central banks attempted to counter the credit crunch liquidity squeeze.

Credit Contagion Spreads from Monoline Insurers to VIE's / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe next 3-letter acronym for toxic securities: “VIE” - While banks are lending another $3 billion to Ambac, a bond insurer, in the hope of staving off more rating downgrades, yet another entity looms large in the field of risk management. Suddenly, a new class of structured investment vehicle called Variable Interest Entities (VIEs), now contain toxic properties. It appears that the VIEs are bond issues that participate in the Auction Rate Securities (ARS) market. These bonds have a clause in their covenant that, if an auction fails to provide adequate liquidity, the yield on the bond resets (higher, of course) to a “fail rate.”

Digestion Period for Nasdaq Q's Ahead of Break Higher? / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThus far, the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) have managed to plunge from the top of the coil pattern (44.50) to the bottom of the coil pattern (43.15). Apart from the volatility exhibited within the range, let's notice that for the past two weeks, rallies have failed at roughly the same price, which have created a horizontal top plateau at 44.50, which is juxtaposed against a series of rising lows. The vast majority of the time, a "flat top" versus "rising lows" resolves itself with the price structure pushing above the flat top.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Charles Kindleberger asks in the investment classic Manias, Panics and Crashes ; “the essence of financial distress is loss of confidence. What comes next - slow recovery of belief in the future as various aspects of the economy are corrected, or collapse of prices, panic, runs on banks, a rush to get out of illiquid assets and into money?”

Our timeline of financial distress is below:

Ambac Bailout May Cause Credit Crisis to Worsen / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA consortium of banks is considering injecting $3 billion dollars into Ambac, the mono-line insurer that relies on its AAA rating to insure, amongst others, municipal bonds and CDOs ( collateralized debt obligations ). What appears as a rescue plan and may appease the markets short-term, may plant the seeds for disaster.

Mono-line insurers used to be in the business of insuring municipal bonds. For a small fee to the insurers, municipalities were able to attach a AAA rating to their bond offerings, significantly lowering their borrowing cost. The market was so attractive that a short-term market was created where long-term debt was packaged into “auction rate securities” (ARS). ARS are a kind of commercial paper attractive to, amongst others, money market funds and treasury departments of large corporations. Municipal bond funds are also large buyers of insured municipal debt.
