Sub-prime Mortgage Credit Crunch From Bad to Worse / Stock-Markets / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: David_Vaughn

Well, that poor bull seems to be tiring. Uh, oh! No! Wait! I believe there's life in that ole' gold bull yet. Anyway, there is life for those with enough sense to observe its strength and consistency.

Well, I spent an entire article last week about this subprime mess and scandal and I still do not feel I said enough on the topic. The damage this will cause our country and the rest of the world really is enormous. I really don't like to come across as a doom and gloomer, but I would be a coward to run from the subject and choose to ignore it.

The Weiss Stock Bear Market Strategy / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Sebastian Leburn writes: I'm the portfolio manager of the Weiss Bear Strategy, and I think it's time we talk about the risks of U.S. stock market declines.

Most people think the risk is greatest when corporate profits are sinking or unemployment is rising. However, some of the sharpest and most prolonged stock market declines in history began in the best of times.

Stock Market Update: Ghost of Crashes Past / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

This week brought back memories of when I would post at different boards on the web where no one wanted anything to do with a bullish chart that ultimately, if they'd listened, would have saved them tens of thousands of dollars. It was the October 2005 low, everyone in the world of Elliott wave was predicting a crash, and I just had to leave that suffocating, doom and gloom atmosphere. Because of that, TTC was formed.

The Wilshire 5000 Stock Market Index Revisited / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Joseph_Russo

Perceptions from May of 2007:
Four months ago, we presented Bullish: Like There's No Tomorrow , which presented a bullish view and critical-mass-breakout buying opportunity for long term-investors interested in capturing further upside potential in the Wilshire 5000 index.

We don't get fooled again:
Those adhering to the general protocols outlined in that piece are flat - as they now hold this index sternly to task - awaiting a long-side re-entry signal upon a close back above the 14991.68 level.

Weekly Financial Markets Analysis - Deja Vu / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

“This is like déjà vu all over again.” Yogi Berra

When I read the following article, I get the feeling the feeling that, somehow, we've been here before. The Wall Street Journal Online printed an article called, “ 'Conduits' in need of a fix .” The article describes a practice at commercial banks of keeping certain assets “off the books” in order to avoid disclosure rules and collect additional fee income. Until now, this has been a very profitable practice for banks. However, subprime mortgages have found their way into these conduits and are causing havoc in the money markets due to the inability to gauge the risk of these vehicles.

Stock Market Investing - The Case For Expanding PE Ratio / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKnowing whether the PE ratio is going to expand or contract is an important factor when trying to beat the market . This is the second of a four part series on which direction the PE ratio for the S&P 500 will go over the next couple of years. Last week we briefly went over how to use the PE ratio and then we will look at ways to get the underlying PE ratio for the S&P 500. It is not as easy as one might first think. In the later parts we will examine the potential for the S&P 500 PE ratio to expand, contract and then provide an opinion on what investors should do. You can read the first commentary at Will the PE Ratio Expand or Contract? Part 1 .

What to Do Next : Five FInancial Alternatives To Stocks For These Volatile Times Part 2 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: George_Kleinman

I began the Aug. 6, 2007, issue of Commodities Trends by stating, "In the financial markets, all we know for sure is that nothing's for sure. The way I see it, financially speaking the stock market does not appear to be the place to be right now. Stocks could certainly go lower; possibly a lot lower."

In the last issue, I advocated steering clear of most stocks, investment real estate and any bond below investment grade. I also recommended buying the Japanese yen. I hope this advice helped you.

Upmove in the Nasdaq Not for Long / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the Q's (Nasdaq: QQQQ) have the right structure and look of an incomplete upleg off of yesterday's low at 46.71, my overall work argues that in the vicinity of 47.70 up to 48.10 this rally will fail and the Q's will reverse into a decline that will retest 46.71, and perhaps press into the 46 area. In other words, I am viewing this upmove as an intervening rally between two declines of a correction.

Stock Market Indexes Confirm a Bullish Cycle Turn / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Jim_Curry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom recent information to our investment advisory clients, the S&P 500 index has recently confirmed a 45-day (10-week) and 120-day (20-26 week) cycle bottom in place. The index did so by closing above VTL resistance (chart 1), which goes over top of a shorter-term cyclical component, the nominal 20-day cycle.

Gold and Dow Jones Analysis - Worrying Times / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Brian_Bloom

That the direction of the gold price has been in a state of indecision can be seen from the following chart. Since the gold price peaked in May 2006, it has been trending sideways, tracing out what appeared to be a Triangle formation. Some weeks ago this analyst thought he saw evidence that the gold price was about to break up out of the triangle. In fact, it did break up briefly – only to pull back again. Intriguingly, the RSI oscillator has been crawling along the 50% level – clearly incapable of pointing a firm direction.

Fingers of Financial Markets Instability Part 3 - September: Blitzkrieg of Bad News / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

In This Issue – Four Fingers Financial Markets Instability

  • Banks Out On a Limb
  • No Escape, aka “Roach Motels”
  • Juggling Acts
  • Return of the Resolution Trusts

As we move into September we must keep in mind that historically it is the worst month of the year for the stock markets. Years ending in 7 are particularly nasty as outlined in the July 15 th edition of the “Crack up boom” series. With the events this year, it would argue for more turmoil. As outlined in the previous edition of ‘Fingers of Instability', we are waiting for the cockroaches to emerge into the headlines and in this missive we will put a few “fingers” on them. The turmoil unfolding in the financial sectors of banks and prime brokers has a lot further to run before it will be safe to play on the long side. On the short side however, opportunities would appear to abound.

The Gathering Financial Storm / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Paul_Tustain

"...Only a lack of imagination can have allowed professional investors to suddenly think of the US Dollar as today's quality refuge..."

ONCE EVERYONE gets back from vacation and starts to focus on what's really going on, we may be in for a torrid few months in the financial markets.

I believe the current lull in gold prices could offer a good opportunity to defend yourself before the real trouble begins.

Predicting the Financial Markets in the Current Chaotic Environment / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Richard_C_Cook

No one can predict how deep the decline in Western economies that is underway will go, because there is so little transparent information. Within the U.S., the government is hiding the severity of the crisis in order to prevent a collapse of consumer confidence.

Realize that the problem does not lie on the side of production. Global industry has the capacity to produce a huge quantity of goods and services. There is even a glut in some sectors, such as automobiles, textiles, IT, and other consumer products.

Fed Policy A Recipe For Disaster / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

As explained Tuesday , the Fed was not about to give into the mob (in terms of official policy) just yet in consideration of the Presidential Cycle and dollar ($), with the end result being the market thought they were demonstrating the economy is stronger than people think, which turned into a credibility boost as stocks continued to squeeze higher. This of course is really just a bluff on the Fed's part, as the credit cycle is turning down, meaning the economy (all Western economies) is in a great deal of trouble moving forward. Here, as you know, stocks are rising not because they are discounting better times ahead, as price managers would have you believe. No, they are rising because of historically high short positions set against ample liquidity conditions sufficient to spark consecutive short squeezes higher, which is why the stock market never corrects fully.
