Kress Cycle Market Deflation Pressure Increases / Stock-Markets / Deflation

By: Clif_Droke

To many observers, deflation was a thing of the past in the wake of the QE3. The Fed’s asset purchases, which drove down bond yields to record lows, were thought to have tamed the global deflationary problem once and for all. What they didn’t count on was the floodtide of deflation breaking through the dikes and barriers carefully constructed by the world’s central banks.

The increasing deflationary pressure is most visible in Europe and Asia but will soon wash up on U.S. shores in the near future. A general deflationary trend is already visible in equity markets in several major countries, a consequence of the final descent of the 120-year Kress cycle. As that cycle approaches its final bottom in late 2014 we can expect to see an increase in some of the problems we’re just starting to see right now in the global economy.

China Stock Market 400-Point Flip-Flop / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

The worst is now past.

That's the word from an HSBC economist after the PBOC's Ling Tao assures the bank will keep money-market rates "within reasonable ranges." The People’s Bank of China has provided liquidity to some financial institutions to stabilize money market rates and will use short-term liquidity operation and standing lending facility tools to ensure steady markets, according to a statement posted to its website today. It also called on commercial banks to improve their liquidity management.

Why the Stock Market Is Doomed / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Paul_Craig_Roberts

One of the myths of economics is that markets are rational. Theories are based on this assumption, and the belief that markets are rational fuels the argument against regulation. The market response to the Federal Reserve’s June 19 statement that it will taper off its bond purchases if its forecast comes true is unequivocal proof that markets are irrational.

The Federal Reserve’s statement that it “currently anticipates that it would be appropriate to moderate the monthly pace of purchases [of bonds] later this year” depends on a very big if. The if is the correctness of the Fed’s forecast of moderate economic growth and employment gains.

S&P Stock Index Trying To Hold On To 1576..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

We closed at 1573, thus, that really is a hold for now. It doesn't look too promising in terms of holding too much longer but the bulls did fight back some today from the breakdown. The S&P 500 fell hard and lost 1576 with force but again, did manage to come back late and hold for the most part. The reason we most likely held wasn't anything bullish in nature. The reality is it was most likely caused by oversold short-term charts on the S&P 500. Dow and Nasdaq. In addition, some leading stocks, which have been crushed recently, hit 30 RSI on their daily charts and that hasn't happened in a very long time. This brought in some bottom fishers expecting a bounce off of oversold not seen in some time.

S&P 500 P/E Ratio versus 10-Yr Treasury Interest Rates From 1957 / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Richard_Shaw

In our recent post, we used historical mean reversion to estimate the Fed’s target rate for 10-year Treasuries, 30-year mortgages, and Baa corporate bonds, based on the Fed’s 2% inflation target. One commenter wrote to us and asked what that implied for the S&P 500 P/E ratios.

We looked at the monthly history of trailing P/E ratios for the S&P 500 since its inception in March 1957, and conclude that there is no useful rule of thumb about P/E ratios and interest rates in the interest rate range from 4% to 6%. At much higher interest rates, P/E’s do become depressed; which relates the to business stifling aspects of very high rates. However, the 4% to 6% range, which is what we may face in next year or two, has not historically been a problem.

China Stock Market Crashes, SPX Gaps Down / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The 10-year treasury yield… Is headed for the moon... in yield terms that is. Because if Bernanke's hope was that the handoff from buyers to sellers would be a smooth one, he may want to conference in Kuroda and get some advice on what happens when the bond market is halted limit down.Good thing Bernanke is not a real hedge fund, or else the $35 billion intraday P&L crash (so far), and $250 billion in the past two months, may raise a few eyebrows.

BIS Bank Forecasts More Of The Same / Stock-Markets / Banksters

By: Andrew_McKillop

BORROWED MONEY AND LOST TIME

The strange story of the BIS – whose forerunner founded in 1930 was the lynchpin bank of the Third Reich – is well known and heavily documented. Introducing its 83rd annual report for 2013, the Bank for International Settlements strikes a supposedly pragmatic we-can-fix-it tone. Its Overview under the title 'Making the most of borrowed time' says: “Originally forged to describe central banks’ actions to prevent financial collapse, Whatever It Takes has become a rallying cry for them to continue their extraordinary policies”.

China Stock Market Falls Hard: What's Going On? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: DK_Matai

Chinese stocks have plunged considerably to lead Asian equities lower with concerns that Beijing may be reluctant or perhaps politically unable to ease a liquidity crunch in the Shanghai interbank money markets, slamming banks particularly hard. The Shanghai Composite suffered its worst one-day percentage loss in nearly four years, plunging 5.3% -- its first close below the psychologically-important 2,000-point level since December last year. The performance is its worst since a 6.7% drop in August 2009 during the global financial crisis. The Shenzhen Composite Index also dived 6.1%. In parallel, Japan and Korea have also fallen more than a percent and now Europe and America are turning negative yet again.

How to Play the New Normal: Spiking Stock Market Volatility / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

Shah Gilani writes: Strap on your seat belts...and get ready for a ride...a very bumpy ride.

After having assumed US equities would keep chugging higher with little deviation from "up," things are starting to look a bit different.

Have you been watching Japan? It's a cautionary tale that is about to play out in the US, and globally.

Stock Market Correction Reaches Temporary Support Level / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Andre_Gratian

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are in their down phases, and if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over), there will be another steep decline into late 2014. However, the severe correction of 2007-2009 may have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - SPX continues to progress according to its structure. An intermediate reversal is on the way.

Analysis of the short-term trend is done on a daily basis with the help of hourly charts. It is an important adjunct to the analysis of daily and weekly charts which discusses the course of longer market trends.

Stocks Bear Market Focus Point: Are You Ready to Weather the Coming Storm? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Garry_Abeshouse


Are you ready to weather the coming storm?
It is a truism that financial markets tend to rise into ever greater expectations and to peak when optimism can rise no further. But when a market can rise no higher, “A” peak becomes “THE” peak and once reached the only way left is down. The only conclusion I can come to as to why equities (but not all equities) are so high, is that the majority of market traders (you notice I do not use the term “investors” any more) must be by definition, “True Believers” in the one and only true “Gospel of the Perpetual Rising Market”, where fantasy triumphs over reason. In this fantasy world the fiction of bullish forward P/E Ratios will always triumph over the realities of the living world, because as we all know the one true God resides, not in heaven, but in Wall Street. But Bull Markets if nothing else are ephemeral beasts, so beware of the coming storm.

Gold Price Crash, Panic Deepens on World Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Global_Research

Andre Damon writes: Global stocks plunged Thursday in the biggest one-day sell-off so far this year, after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke said the US central bank might consider paring back its cash infusions into the financial markets within the next six months.

The panic in stock and bond markets sparked by the remarks of Bernanke, who on Wednesday suggested the Fed might start winding down its $85 billion per month in asset purchases, was compounded by the release of data on Thursday showing that Chinese manufacturing activity hit its lowest level in nine months.

S&P Stock Index Charts Speak Loudest, Clearest, And Most Accurately / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Michael_Noonan

Not that charts actually "speak," but the information taken from them can be the most reliable for anyone wanting to accumulate profits. Does not everyone want to accumulate profits? You would think that the answer would be an easy yes, but somewhere in the process of "investing" in the stock market, the answer is not as obvious as it would seem.

Why not?

Good question.

Lack of discipline is one of the more key answers. Ignorance comes to mind as a more widespread one. Too many people simply do not know what to do at the right time or at critical moments. When a stock or a futures contract is not going well, aka creating losses, the first question, it would seem, is what was the plan? What was the reason for entering into a position in the first place? What was the exit plan,[surely there was one]?
