Investor Sentiment Improves on Worst of Credit Crisis Behind Us / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May,” said Edwin Way Teal.

And so it seemed during the past week as we witnessed a further improvement in investor sentiment and risk appetite, supported by the viewpoint that the worst of the credit crisis might be behind us. The end result by Friday's close was strong gains for stock markets (with the Volatility Index at its lowest level since December), a further recovery of the US dollar, a sell-off of most commodities, and a weak undertone in government bond markets.

Non-Farm Payrolls- Lies, damned lies and statistics / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe quote has been attributed to Benjamin Disraeli and popularized by Mark Twain. It could be applied to today's Employment Report . The press headline reads, “ Nonfarm payrolls down 20,000; unemployment rate unexpectedly falls.” Folks, these numbers have been massaged to get the “right” outcome.

For example, in April, the number of persons working part time for economic reasons increased by 306,000 to 5.2 million. This level was 849,000 higher than in April 2007. These individuals indicated that they were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. 5.2 million workers comprise 3.8% of the alleged workforce.

Equities Uptrend Weakened by Surging Crude Oil / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In just about the past 24 hours, crude oil prices have rocketed from a corrective low of $110.30 to this AM's intraday high at $116.18 so far- just a 5% gain, that's all! So far, the rally in oil, an ETF of which is the US Oil Trust (AMEX: USO), has recovered about 60% of the prior decline from the all-time high at $119.93 to yest.'s low at $110.30. If June crude hurdles and sustains above $116.20, then I will be expecting a retest of $119.93.

Financial Stocks Break Out / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This morning the Financial Select SPDR (AMEX: XLF) broke out of a 6-week bullish coil pattern that represents the digestion period after the initial upmove from the 3/17 low at 22.1 to the 3/24 high at 27.37 (+23%). With today's surge out of the coil, the XLF has started a new upleg that should propel the financial index towards a test of resistance at 27.80-28.00 next, on the way to an optimal target zone of 29.50. Only a break below 26.40 will wreck the developing upside follow-through from the March low. Read full article... Read full article...

Bearish Stock Market Wedge Patterns- Yorba TV Show / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday I want to talk about wedges (not wedgies).  Especially the bearish kind of wedge.  We have them in a lot of indexes, namely in the SPX, the NDX and the EEM.  Bearish wedges are continuation patterns of an existing trend. A wedges is formed by a counter-trend correction and it leans against the prevailing advance or decline.  In this case, a rising wedge is bearish and a falling wedge is bullish.  The wedge pattern usually retraces one-half to two-thirds of the prevailing move before failing or reversing.  Volume usually contracts during the formation of the wedge, while increasing after the break down or breakout.  My source is John Murphy's book, Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets.

A Good Reason To Sell Stock Market Investments- Taxes / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month we stated: “we should expect rocket-launched (oh they've saved us) bear market rallies.” Since that time, the DJIA has had two separate blastoffs. That's all it took for investors to forget about the massive deflation that is happening in U.S. neighborhoods . We view the rise of the last two months as a breather before more serious selling takes hold. Goldman Sachs agrees and is warning ‘delusional' investors of a sell-off of “a further 15pc over the ‘near term.'” Warren Buffett has also recently stated “ the recession will be more severe than most expect.

Stock Markets Headed Lower into June-Sell in May and Go Away / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe old stock trader's saying of “sell in May and walk away” appears to be unfolding right on schedule this year. And with the expected major low coming in June, for the next 2 months, investors may wish to sit on the sidelines to watch the show and keep their investing on hold. If the last three major lows (March 2007, August 2007 and January 2008) were any example, the trough in June could be quite interesting. No one can say that this market is boring.

Worst is Not Over for Stock Market Falls, Credit Crisis Or Fed Rate Cuts / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommentators and pundits alike have erroneously stated that last week's highs in US equity indices broke important technical levels. The Dow has not only failed to breach above a key trend line resistance of 12,920, prevailing since the October highs but also failed to breach the 50% retracement from the same high to the January lows. Similarly, the S&P500's major resistance stands at the 1,410 trend line resistance acting since the October 10 highs. We remind our readers that these recurring failures are no coincidence but instead a technical failure that is largely in synch with prolonged economic uncertainty.

Food Price Inflation, Monetary Policy & Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Food Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe second is by good friend and Maine fishing buddy David Kotok, the chief investment officer of Cumberland Asset Managers ( www.cumber.com ). He was recently in Africa where he met with the head of the central bank of a small country with headline inflation of 10%. The problem is that "core inflation" is 5% and food inflation is 15%, yet accounts for 50% of the GDP. He asked a group of financial thinkers (including your humble analyst) to ponder what that central banker should do. Do you set high rates and target overall inflation or set lower rates and not worry about food inflation.

Why the Credit Crisis is Far From Finished / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box we look at two brief essays which give us different perspective on the Continuing Crisis. The first is by Mohamed El-Erian, the co-chief executive and co-chief investment officer of Pimco. His book, 'When Markets Collide: Investment Strategies for the Age of Global Economic Change', will be published by McGraw Hill in June, and it will be on my summer reading list. El-Erian argues in the thought-provoking piece from the Financial Times that the crisis is still far from finished, and that those who think we are returning to more placid times may be surprised when volatility suddenly becomes even more pervasive.

Stock Markets Buoyed by Decent Earnings and Interest Rate Cuts / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

With all the hand wringing about consumer confidence falling to 25+ year lows, it becomes much easier to understand IF we make the assumption that we are in a recession. Others worry about the self-fulfilling prophesy – if we believe we are in a recession, it will be so. However much of what is happening today was planted over a year ago. This too is the reason for why all the rate cuts made by the Fed have had little impact upon investors and the economy. However, the cuts will eventually have an impact – but that is not likely until later in the year. A complicating factor in today's economy is the lack of lending “interest” by banking institutions.

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.
