New Profits in the Old World - Europe / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

When I think of the Old World, among the images that first spring to mind are those of medieval castle towns like Heidelberg, where Rupert the Red founded the fourth university of the Holy Roman Empire in 1386 … or of the Acropolis, rebuilt by Pericles during the Golden Age of Athens between 460 and 430 BC.

It's only on second thought that I remember the modernity of today's Europe.

Similarly, when you think of the European economy, you typically associate it with outdated economic models — burdensome taxation, non-productive social support systems, and a tangled web of government regulations.

The Institute for Supply Management's factory index rose to 55 in May, from 54.7 in April.

Rising mortgage defaults are increasing the supply of houses for sale. Banks and other lenders are raising their lending standards, resulting in home purchases being less affordable to fewer buyers.

Stock Market Cycle Turning Points Analysis 3rd June 2007 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market.

SPX: Long-Term Trend - The 12-year cycle is still in its up-phase but, as we approach its mid-point some of its dominant components are topping and could lead to a severe correction over the next few months.

SPX: Intermediate Trend - With the price reaching the preferred target area in an appropriate time frame, the rally from 3/14 should be coming to an end.

Trading the Short-term Stock Market Trend Within the Long Term Trend / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

We track both the primary (long-term) trend, and the short-term trend. Knowing both is key to making money trading or investing in the stock market . Simply, increase exposure when playing a short-term trend that is in the same direction as the primary trend.

Stock Market Perma Bears - Send In The Clowns By All Means! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

The bull market in stocks continues, but to hear various exponents of the bearish persuasion talk, you'd think the party was ending right now. At least that's the impression I get reading some of their weekly rants on various Internet sites.

Stock Market - June Swoon / Summer Rally / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

"The Raging Bull" we spoke of a couple of weeks ago, appears to have taken up permanent residence across many sectors of the financial sphere. This bull has been relentless, cunning, and quite masterful in dealing with the plethora of participants who have been eagerly anticipating some type of correction – if not an outright crash!

After 11-weeks of nothing but blue sky, we suspect this bull may simply be growing bored of the dominance it imposes upon bears at will. Perhaps a couple of weeks respite in June ought to be a minimum at which this easily antagonized bull may once again become angered, electing to resume its deceptive charge with renewed fury.

Will China's "Stamping" Out of Stock Speculation Curb Overall Stock Market Speculation? / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Effective yesterday, the Chinese Ministry of Finance increased its so-called stamp tax on stock market transactions from 0.1% to 0.3% in an effort to curb speculation in the Chinese stock market. This stamp tax is nothing but a transactions tax imposed on both buyers and sellers of stocks.In reaction to the increased tax rate, the Shanghai Composite stock index fell 6.5%.

Metals and US Stock Indices Charts Analysis / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Investmentscore.com

In this editorial we have incorporated long term charts for gold, silver and the Dow Jones Index with a twenty seven year support line.

In the below charts you will notice:

  1. Dividing two markets together to create a ratio helps us determine which market is outperforming the other market.  For example, in the chart above, when the black line heads higher, the NYSE is outperforming Silver and when the black line heads lower Silver is outperforming the NYSE.

China Stock Market Crash Update: The Real Story ... / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Marty_Chenard

Chinese Government officials got real worried when the Shanghai continued its parabolic rise and blew through its 12 year Major resistance level.

This morning, their markets dropped over 6% after the government increased the stamp tax on Security transactions. The news media are making a "big deal" out of the tax increase by running headlines that say, "China China's CSI 300 Drops After Transaction Tax Tripled ".

GOLD THOUGHTS : Surge in Investing in Paper Equities, Tail End of the Boom? / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Ned_W_Schmidt

Investing in paper equities has apparently become far easier. Either a stock will be taken private by a speculative investment fund or it will be purchased with money from China's foreign currency reserves. Investment gains have rarely been so assured. Not since internet stock bubble or Florida condo mania have investors faced such odds of winning. Combine those odds with a Federal Reserve dwelling in the la la land of core inflation creates a near perfect story for placing wealth into paper equities.

Stock Market Developing Topping Pattern Over the Summer / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: David_Petch

The decline in the S&P 500 and other broad market indices likely was a shot across the bow for what lies ahead later in the year. Technically the S&P could have completed the move up, but technical evidence suggests that a topping formation will develop over the course of the summer before a sharp decline in September/October.

A Backdoor Investment Play into Macau / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: : I've never considered myself to be a yuppie. Even when I was younger, I never drove a BMW … bought a Rolex … or belonged to a country club. I'm just the simple son of a vegetable farmer. I drive a domestic pickup truck, wear a Timex, and shop at Wal-Mart and Costco.

Still, the yuppies were a powerful consumer force. They had a major impact on both the U.S. economy and the stock market. People who invested in companies catering to yuppies made small fortunes!

Honest Money Financial Markets Wrap - Stocks, Commodities and Gold / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Douglas_V_Gnazzo

Introduction
This week's market wrap is going to focus primarily on the precious metals sector. There are a lot of charts, including a couple of the dollar and bonds.

The recent prolonged correction of gold and silver has produced a good deal of angst in the pm community, as the many emails and comments I've received on my website attest.

I will attempt to address the concerns that were expressed. So let's get to it.

First up is the monthly chart of gold going back to the start of the bull market in 2001.

CHINA CRASH - Domino Effect on Stock Markets, and Collateral Effect on Resource Stocks... / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Clive_Maund

One of the great fears plaguing resource stock investors is what will happen if the broad market suddenly goes into the tank. This fear is quite justified as resource stocks, in particular gold and silver stocks, have generally performed poorly in comparison with the general stock market over the past year, and every time the broad market shows signs of weakness, they have dropped sharply, a good example being last Thursday.

In this article we are going to take a look at the great Chinese equity bubble, and how the bursting of this bubble will probably affect US stock markets and thus resource stocks.

Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report - 27th May 07 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: Many of the major indices hit multi year or all time highs last week.

Short Term
The small caps lead both up and down and for the past month that leadership has left something to be desired.

The chart below covers the past year showing the S&P 500 (SPX) in green and the Russell 2000 (R2K) in red. At the bottom of the chart is a FastTrack (http://fasttrack.net) relative strength indicator called Accutrack (AT). When AT is above the neutral line and/or rising the R2K is outperforming the SPX. For the past month until about a week ago AT has been below the neutral line and falling to its lowest level since this up leg began last summer. Last week AT turned up and, although it is still below the neutral level, the direction is what we like to see.

Thoughts from the Frontline - The US Mortgage Market - Overexposed and Overrated / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

In this issue:
The Chinese Hedge Fund Dragon
Turning Nuclear Waste into Gold
Overexposed and Overrated
Housing Is Weaker than the Data Suggests
Planes, Trains, Automobiles, and We're #30

This week we look at the US mortgage market to see what fallout there is from the subprime mortgage woes. It is both less of a problem and/or more of a problem, depending on your perspective, as I predicted it would be last year. Score one for your analyst, which said score is needed as the stock market continues to rise in spite of my concerns in the face of a slowing economy.

Into the Pool - ETF Skeptic / Stock-Markets / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Roger_Conrad

Here's a confession from a 20 years-plus industry veteran: I use investment conferences for more than making my points and chatting with current and prospective readers. I also like to scope out what the rest of the industry—including the competition—is doing, chiefly the products they're selling and the public's reception to them.

One of the most popular items at last week's Las Vegas Money Show was exchange traded funds (ETFs). It's not hard to see that these have captured investors' imagination, and dollars, during the past year. The “Wall Street Journal” now publishes what seems to be an ever-expanding page of ETFs that are offered by a growing array of financial houses anxious to cash in on the trend.

Is Global Stock Market Exuberance Rational / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Peter_Schiff

As stocks markets around the world rise to record highs, even former Fed Chairman Alan Greenspan could not refrain from raising concerns about surging Chinese stocks.  Lest we forget, Greenspan is on record for declaring the impossibility of spotting a bubble before it bursts. But in the few times that he has violated his own credo, his vision has proven invariably faulty. 

Not only did he warn of irrational exuberance in the U.S. just before a five-fold increase in the NASDAQ, but he became one of the markets biggest boosters once the market peaked. Based on his track record, I interpret his statements as a screaming buy signal for Chinese stocks.

Utility Futility Suggests the Bear is Growling / Stock-Markets / US Utilities

By: Brady_Willett

With S&P 500 bank/financial stocks the worst performing sectors so far in 2007, it is becoming clear that the inverted yield curve has damaged investor confidence in the group. Conversely, with utility stocks the best performing sector this year, it is obvious that investors have continued their defensive hunt for yield. Suffice to say, given that financial stocks typically outperform early in the cycle and utilities tend to beat other sectors late (or in the down cycle), the action in 2007 would seem to suggest that the bear is growling.
