Global Stock Markets Technicals Dangerous / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhite knuckles and shaky knees abound as the bear's growl grows louder.

While on the road in Switzerland (where even the gnomes are gloomy), I have put together a table of global stock markets' performance – over various measurement periods and in both local currency and US dollar terms. The numbers speak for themselves and can best be summarized in a single sentence: “Nowhere to hide.” The Wall Street “leash effect” remained paramount, and decoupling nothing more than a theoretical myth.

Paulson Statement Warns of Imminent Failure of Large Financial Institutions / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

The July 2nd Remarks of Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson , on the World Economy and Markets before the Chatham House were quite remarkable. Let's have a look at a few of them.
Whether it was Long Term Capital Management in 1998 or Bear Stearns this year, it is clear that Americans have come to expect the Federal Reserve to step in to avert events that pose unacceptable systemic risk. But, as we noted in our Blueprint, the Fed has neither the clear statutory authority nor the mandate to attempt to anticipate and prevent risks across our entire financial system.

Stock Market Oversold But Threatening Critical Support Level / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOriginally written 30th June 2008 - Following the market trend is a proven way for investors to beat the market and grow your stock portfolio. Basic technical analysis provides the tools to identify and follow the trends of the market as determined by the S&P 500.

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.

China Stock Market Primed for Red Hot Mergers & Acquisitions Boom / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTony Sagami writes: One of the first books I read as an economics major at the University of Washington was Adam Smith's Wealth of Nations. It was then that I first learned about what he called the 'invisible hand of capitalism.'

Smith believed that an individual pursuing his or her own self-interest tends also to promote the good of their community as a whole. To paraphrase Gordon Gecko, it's the notion that "Greed is good."

When All Stocks Are Value Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThink QDI - Value stocks are those that tend to trade at lower prices relative to their fundamental characteristics than their more speculative cousins, the growth stocks; they have higher than usual dividend yields and lower P/E and P/B ratios. So when all stock prices are down significantly, have they all become value stocks? Or, based on the panicky fear that tends to overwhelm media and financial experts alike, haven't they all taken on the speculative characteristics of growth stocks?

Stocks Bear Market Insanity / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_Lamont

As we forecast last month in our Investment Analysis Report, the regional banks have quickly brought about the next round of financial troubles. We expect a large decline in the broader stock market to be the next major issue. The Royal Bank of Scotland , Morgan Stanley , Barclays , and even the Bank of International Settlements (the central bank's central bank) have issued financial storm warnings. We referenced the Bank of International Settlements (BIS) last July in warning of the credit crunch last year . According to the Telegraph , they are now specifically warning of deflation. The BIS states:

Stocks Down, Gold and Crude Oil Up / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Regent_Markets

Financial markets were a sea of red numbers last week as the classic ‘Fade the Fed' trade played out. The initial reaction to Wednesday's US interest rate decision was neutral to positive, then the selling set in and hardly stopped. Thursday's mini rally did a very poor job of papering over the cracks in the global economy.

Worst June for the Dow Jones Since 1930s Deflationary Depression / Stock-Markets / Deflation

By: Paul_J_Nolte

With but one day left of trading to the half-way point of the year, it is becoming more clear that this will not be an ordinary year. Unless today's market rallies something fierce, this will be the worst June for the averages since the Depression. On a less ominous note, the Fed met last week and decided that inflation was more an issue for the economy than growth, however left rates unchanged and likely spurred the latest round of selling. In what could be deemed a rush to call out their brethren, brokerage firms downgraded each other citing additional capital needs in the months ahead. If that weren't enough, oil prices continued their drive higher, altering many 4th of July vacation plans (on a 3-day weekend no less).

Sell, Hedge your Stock Market Investments.. or Be Prepared to Lose! / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: The stock market is falling swiftly, and you don't have the luxury of time. So I'll get straight to the point:

If you haven't done so already in response to our many earlier warnings, you'd better sell or hedge your vulnerable investments now . If you don't, be prepared to suffer far deeper losses in the bear market of 2008 and beyond.

But beware: Most brokers will try to talk you out of it. They have a hidden agenda. They want to keep you as a customer; and they know that, once customers sell their stocks, they often close their brokerage accounts.

S&P 500 Stock Market Index Potential Near-Term Double Bottom Pattern / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this AM, the SPY declined to 127.30 prior to pivoting to the upside for a rally to an intraday high so far at 128.87. Let's notice that the AM low left behind a potential near term Double Bottom type of pattern with Fri.'s low at 127.04. To trigger upside acceleration that unleashes the potential of the "mini Double Bottom," the SPYs must hurdle and sustain above129.00-- for a run at 130.00/30 thereafter.

Stock Market Heading for a Successful Test of March Low / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Current position of the Market

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLong-term trend - The Dow Jones Industrials are 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 began to take effect and that October 2007 was the top of the bull market. This is not yet confirmed.

Stock Markets Very Oversold Rally Expected Next Week / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: The market is very oversold and likely to bounce.

Short Term For the 1st 3 days of last week the DJIA danced slightly above its March low. Thursday and Friday it lost nearly 4% and the NYSE recorded 492 new lows, better than the 759 new lows recorded at the March low, but still enough to make another retest likely.

Financial Markets Hit by Credit Market Stresses and Deteriorating Corporate Earnings / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleT.S. Eliot might have been out by a few months – it looks as though June might turn out to be the cruelest month of the year rather than April.

Renewed fears of inflation and slower growth caused by record energy costs played havoc with global stock markets last week, resulting in the Dow Jones Industrial Average being on track to record its worst June since the Great Depression. As stocks suffered, gold bullion surged and government bond yields dropped due to safe-haven buying.

Dow Stock Market Crash and Iran War Herald End of US Dollar Hegemony / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Alex_Wallenwein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe June 2008 Dow Crash and the coming first strike attack on Iran herald the end of dollar hegemony.

BREAK-DOW!

They say that pictures speak a thousand words, so let's start this with a picture: Today, the Dow crashed through its eight-year support level at 11,750. There isn't much below now to keep it from dropping all the way back down to the 7,500-range. What that will do to American investor psychology and worse, consumer confidence, and therefore spending, and therefore the economy, is only too apparent.

Corporate Earnings Expectations Are Too High- Prepare for More Downside / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are about to enter the second quarter 2008 earnings season. If you want to beat the market, it important to have a well founded perspective on earnings expectations. Understanding the importance of earnings is critical if you wish to learn to invest.

Since the U.S. is in a recession, it is normal to expect the reported earnings to reflect the slowing economy. However, a number of analysts are still forecasting a higher PE ratio. Is this realistic and a good basis to make investing decisions?

Global Stock Markets Plunge on Soaring Crude Oil Price / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEyes wide open - How could Wall Street brokers tell their clients that auction-rate securities were “…very safe and liquid as possible,” Yet underwriters from the same company telling issuers that demand was softening and demanded higher interest rates. At least 24 proposed class-action lawsuits have been filed against brokerages since March, and a nine-state task force is examining how the firms marketed the securities. Those burned in the meltdown see it as a case of Wall Street hiding known risks from investors, much like the dot-com scandal over former Merrill Lynch & Co. analyst Henry Blodget , who once advised buying a stock while privately calling it ``junk.''

Stocks Bear Market- Talking Heads Speak About Buying Opportunties? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Dudley_Baker

What the heck does this mean? With the financial markets in the United States finally kicking into a full blown bear market, we know where the down is in ‘The Upside of Down'. Don't you love it when the talking heads on the financial TV channels still speak about the buying opportunities? They suggest buying the defensive stocks as they will decline less than the other sectors. What? Why would an ‘investor' want to buy something knowing it will go down, just not as much as the others? I have never understood that silly argument. The financial sector is tanking, the banks are tanking and one of ‘big three' auto companies is now selling at levels not seen since 1955.

S&P 500 Stock Market Index Approaching Critical Test of March Low / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe relentless selling pressure that has transpired since about 3 PM ET yesterday (Wednesday) despite some intense oversold readings and developing momentum divergences has started to convince me that the near-term chart work in the S&P 500, though still extremely important, may not be calling the directional shots any longer. In fact, the developing negativity of the very long term technical work may be the timeframe that IS CALLING -- and will continue to call -- the directional shots for the foreseeable future.

Stock Markets Can Crash When Central Bankers Clash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHyper-inflation in the commodities markets is rivaling the US housing collapse and the global banking crisis, as the biggest threat to the world economy. Finance ministers from the United States, Canada, Japan, France, Germany, Italy, Britain, and Russia, have expressed their alarm over the doubling of agricultural, energy, and key raw material prices from a year ago, which is pushing inflation rates around the world, to their highest in three decades.

Crude oil briefly touched $140 a barrel, and the price of corn, used to make ethanol, hit $8 /bushel. Chinese steelmakers agreed to pay 96% more for Iron ore from Australian miner Rio Tinto, a five-fold increase since 2003. Steel prices have soared almost 50%, this year, as coal and iron ore prices continue to climb and global demand shows little sign of abating. Dow Chemical is raising prices on a wide range of its products by 25%, due to sharply higher energy and raw material costs.

Banks Balance Sheet Destruction and Repair! -Crack Up Boom Part III / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIntroduction: At no time in my career have I seen greater opportunities for investors who are properly informed. The AVERAGE amount of M3 central bank money and credit creation is simply astonishing. It is clocking in at an average annual rate of 23%. Yes, that's right, 23%. Using the rule of 72, that means those money supplies in one form or another are doubling on average every 3.13 years as money does an imitation of confetti.

In actuality, it is fire hoses of hot money being used to underpin the G7 financial and banking systems. Then it is combined with emerging markets throughout the world with dollar pegs and current account surpluses sterilizing their currencies so they do not ROCKET higher against the dollar. It is a powerful cocktail of stimulus for the emerging world, and an inflationary one for us all.
