Invest in Russia 2008 / Stock-Markets / Russia

By: Yiannis_G_Mostrous

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI've long favored Russia as a destination for investment, building my case primarily around its energy sector. But I've also highlighted the increase in domestic demand and the infrastructure boom taking place there.

Russia is currently in a sweet spot: It's a net oil exporter, has good GDP growth, isn't dependent on foreign capital flows, is relatively stable politically, boasts reasonable market valuations and, above all, enjoys solid exposure to the biggest growth story of our time, Asia.

Wall Street Eyes Wide Shut to Inflation and Impact of Sovereign Wealth Fund Investments / Stock-Markets / US Economy

By: Peter_Schiff

As our economic ship continues to spring leaks, the goldilocks crowd still clings to the false belief that the Fed can easily keep us afloat with a few more rate cuts. This comfort has sustained many upbeat forecasts despite overwhelming evidence of an unfolding economic and monetary catastrophe of historic proportions.

On Monday we learned that Merrill Lynch, having just sold a $4.5 billion stake to the Singapore government, is again passing around the hat, this time wooing the Chinese and Saudi governments for badly needed funds. This of course follows similar moves by U.S. investment houses Citigroup, Morgan Stanley and Bear Stearns. These developments should be disconcerting on many levels, yet most seem unperturbed.

US Financial Crisis Worsening as Consumer Loan Delinquencies Surge / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Several weeks ago, I told you we were staring "S&L Crisis II" in the face. I said estimates of losses stemming from the mortgage crisis kept spiraling higher — from $100 billion ... to $250 billion ... to $400 billion and higher.

I wish I could say things are getting better. But they're not. In fact, the tally of charges, losses and write-downs across the financial industry continues to rise higher and higher.

Forecasts for 2008 - Stock and Financial Markets, Commodities, Housing and US Elections / Stock-Markets / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Tim_Iacono

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday's review of predictions for 2007 wasn't nearly as good as the year before, but then the bar was set rather high back in 2006 . As it was, the results were again mostly A's with a few lower grades in areas where predictions probably shouldn't have been made anyway.

Of course, when three of the ten predictions are oil, gold, and the dollar, guesses of up, up, and down really are slam-dunks.

2008 - Break of the Financial System as PRIME Mortgages Go BUST / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe year 2008 will be the year that THINGS JUST PLAIN BREAK. It will be a truly deadly year, unavoidably lethal to the USEconomy and especially to the US banking sector. Nothing has been repaired. Some tangible solutions will be offered in the next section, all legitimate in a real world. However, we do NOT live in a real world, but rather in a Fairy Tale world of US Hegemony and Wall Street with a choke hold around the US entire system. Managed inflation is the policy never to be reversed, until total breakdown occurs. Treason is rampant, called simply Power Games.

Stock Market Cycle Investment Management and the Business Cycle / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Steve_Selengut


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhatever happened to the Stock Market Cycle; the Interest Rate Cycle; Baby Jane? How did Wall Street get away with pushing these facts of financial life down the basement stairs? Most investors, I'm beginning to believe, and all financial advisors, media representatives, and market gurus have abandoned these fascinating curves for the comfort of a straight-edged twelve-month playing field... simple, yes; realistic, not. I have to wonder if things would be different with a more investor-friendly tax-code, but that would be far less lucrative for The Wizards...

Credit Collapse Domino Effect to Send Stocks Lower / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's no reason to be short the stock market from a seasonal perspective anymore. And with all the giveaways these days, along with apparent ample money supply, again, if contemplating participation in the stock market, without a doubt the ‘rational man' would be compelled to be long given it appears authorities have the subprime mess under control – right? Correspondingly then, both short and put / call ratios should be falling, and in fact this is exactly what is happening as market participants get squeezed in a traditional Santa Claus rally. From a sentiment related perspective this is a bearish set-up along the lines of Dave's thoughts on the subject – The Grinch That Stole Christmas .

2008 Investment and Economic Forecasts / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: David_Urban

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Economy
The American consumer has proven to be very resilient over the years. Rumors of their impending demise have been foretold since the beginning of the decade and here we stand at another crossroads. Consumer spending accounts for more than 70% of GDP so while everyone focuses on manufacturing, production, and service figures they overlook the one figure that matters most, retail sales.

Stock Market Trends for 2008 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe year 2007 was marked by pessimism, doom and gloom, and a never-ending fusillade of fear. The mainstream press never tired of hypnotizing into believing the stock market would collapse, a downfall which never materialized.

With all the talk of the weak dollar and the predictions of a worsening liquidity crisis, prognosticators have all but written off the prospects for a bullish 2008. Calls for a recession in the year ahead are also on the rise. What these analysts have failed to grasp is that there never was a liquidity crisis to begin with. By definition, tight money is reflected by rising interest rates and falling money supply indicators. Just the opposite is the case today.

2008 Epic Battle Between Credit Crunch and Central banks Liquidity Flood / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: The year 2007 is closing — and 2008 is about to open — with an epic battle between two of the most powerful economic crosscurrents we've seen in a lifetime:

  • An unprecedented credit crunch threatening to strangle the debt-addicted U.S. economy, and ...
  • Equally unprecedented money pumping by a Federal Reserve determined to flood the economy with all the cash it needs to overcome the crunch.

Stock Market Trading 2008 - Resolved Price Interpretation / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

"Who is the judge? The judge is God... Why is He God? Because He decides who wins or loses, not my opponent ... Who is your opponent? He does not exist.... Why doesn't he exist? Because he is a mere dissenting voice of the truth I speak."

The above quote comes from the film “The Great Debaters” directed by Denzel Washington. The Great Debaters was inspired by Wiley College, a traditionally African-American school in Marshall, Texas, with Melvin Tolson, its iconic debate coach.

Stock Market Seasonal and Cyclic Forecast for 2008 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

SPX: Long-Term Trend - The 12-yr cycle is approaching its mid-point and some of its dominant components have topped and may be restraining the bullish effect of the 4.5-yr. This could lead to another period of consolidation in 2008 with an eventual bull market top in 2009-2010.

SPX: Intermediate Trend - The intermediate-term trend which had been in a correction since the index reached 1576 has now resumed its up move, but the corrective pattern could be extended if a new high is not achieved soon.

Lessons for High Yield Stock Market Investments 2008 / Stock-Markets / Dividends

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's still one trading day left in 2007. But for income investors, the key lessons from what was quite a tumultuous year are already in focus, as is how we can use them for a prosperous 2008.

Once again, diversification paid off in spades. Some dividend-paying investments such as utility stocks were huge winners. More economy-sensitive fare like financial's and most real estate investment trusts were losers. But a balanced portfolio of a wide range of high-quality income-payers held its own, generating steady income with low overall volatility of principal.

Stock Market Update: Work Ethic of an Unbiased Trader / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dominick

I hope you had an enjoyable, restful holiday week. But, if you're like me you've been looking forward to the end of these shortened weeks and can't wait to get back to some heavy volume trading! Friday's close left the immediate term outlook very muddled with many different patterns still viable, but as usual we're content to show up day after day to trade whatever the market offers. All the ambiguity of the current setup means is that anyone who now says they know exactly what will happen next is probably wrong!

Stock and Investment Markets Outlook for 2008 / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGazing into the crystal ball for investing in 2008 - Cash may be king for the moment but financial experts favour a plunge back into equity markets later in the year

A 'YEAR of fear' for portfolio investors - or a time of great opportunity? This is the question The Business Times put to a panel of financial experts as 2007 draws to a close. Their answers contained some surprises. Cash may be king for the moment, in the immediate aftermath of the US sub-prime mortgage crisis, and the worst is yet to come in equity markets.

Current Stock Market Conditions from both a Dow Theory and a Cyclical Perspective / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I'm sure you all know, I have been saying for quite some time that the equity markets have been operating within one of the longest 4-year cycles in stock market history. This is not some hollow or shallow opinion in which I'm letting the wish father the thought. In reality, I wish that I could tell you the 4-year cycle low is behind us, because that would certainly make my job much easier as that is what the majority of the public seem to want to believe. In any event, I do not align myself with popular opinion to make my job easier. Rather, my opinion is based strictly on statistical analysis and very specific indicators. As we move into 2008, the statistics nor the indicators have changed in regard to this matter. Therefore, my opinion continues to be that the 4-year cycle low still lies ahead.
