JP Morgan Derivatives Book and Manipulation of the Dow Theory Bullish Picture / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Brian_Bloom

The two charts of JP Morgan below show an anomaly which is potentially disturbing in context of other patterns.

The reason I honed in on these charts flows from the discussion regarding Bear Stearns that has emerged over the past week – regarding their packaging of Mortgage Backed Securities and Collateralised Debt Obligations. A discussion on this phenomenon can be found at http://www.321gold.com/editorials/tustain/tustain062307.html .

Yen Carry Trade Alert - Gold And Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: Christopher_Laird

For the past several weeks, I have been telling subscribers of my concern about the Yen again being at a low level. This present level has led to upsurges in the Yen, as traders unwind Yen carry trades. World stock markets and gold have sold off when this happens, as in late February of this year. The Yen hit a 5 year low days ago.

Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Merv_Burak

The good news is: The market is approaching an oversold level near its recent extremes.

Short Term
For the past few weeks the market has been bouncing from one extreme to another. It has gone from an oversold low early this month to an overbought high the end of last week and, if the current trend continues, will be at another oversold low in a few days.

Mergers Abound with Canadian Income Trusts / Stock-Markets / Canadian Stock Market

By: Roger_Conrad

Remember when investors could retire and live well on a modest nest egg? Remember when taxes were only 15% a year, and when you didn't have to worry about losing your shirt before the closing bell?

That way of life has gradually been taken from you. But this letter is going to bring it all back, courtesy of the Canadian government.

They've invented a whole new kind of investment, one that's pulling hundreds of billions of US dollars across the border into Canada today.

Nolte Notes - Stock Markets Bumping Along / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

In keeping with the recent activity of the markets, the major averages took it on the chin this week, for reasons that remain somewhat of a mystery. Oil prices rose back toward the $70/bbl mark, however the pump prices have continued to decline every so slightly. Bond prices moderated from their rapid decline of the past few weeks. The economic reports continue to show an economy that is “bumping along” without the major potholes that many feared. However the rumblings over a housing market still not in recovery mode and the liquidation of Bear Stearns hedge fund (funded by a bunch of sub-prime loans) was enough to make the markets jittery and push them lower for the week.

Housing Market Mortgage Meltdown and the Hedge Fund Collapse / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: For many months, Mike Larson has been warning you about a meltdown in America's vast new market for home mortgages.

Now that meltdown is here.

He told you home sales and prices would fall, and they did.

He told you that American homeowners would default on their mortgage payments in record numbers, and they have.

He warned this would shake Wall Street to its core. Now it is.

The evidence is ubiquitous and indisputable:

Stock Market Forming Topping Pattern / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: David_Petch

I am glad I waited for one more day to examine the S&P, because the volatility confirms that a topping formation is underway and likely will last into September/October (most likely October). The US Dollar declined sharply today and a falling US stock market makes the decline a double whammy.

The upper 55 MA Bollinger band curling down did confirm a top, with the depth of the lower 55 MA Bollinger band suggestive a decline to 1440 is probable but not for 2-4 weeks. Short-term stochastics have the %K beneath the %D within the confines of an expanding stochastic wedge. Given the volatility witnessed during the past two weeks, I do not want to even try and catch every zig and zag. Rather I want to focus on the markets having a chronological decline type of topping process over the course of the next 3-4 months before declining.

Stocks & Commodity Markets Technical Analysis: Too Many Were Trading the 4th Wave / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Dominick

After calling the market perfectly from the June 2006 low all the way to the June 1 st 2007 turn, right down to the exact date, I could just step back and say the top is in and that I told you first. Unfortunately, I have too much reason to believe the ingredients for a perfect top are not yet in the mix but still out in front of us to simply ignore it and walk away. As of this weekend the confirmation needed isn't there. If it appears early next week I will be fast to work on bearish patterns, but not until then.

The Dow Industrials Drop 185 Points Friday, the day after we got a Confirmed Hindenburg Omen / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

The Dow Industrials fell sharply again, down 185.58 points to close at 13,360.26 Friday. Volume was huge on the decline in all major averages, which is not good. NYSE volume was 134 percent of its 10 day average, with downside volume leading at 78 percent, with declining issues at 74 percent, with S&P 500 downside points leading at a near panic 89 percent. NYSE New 52 week Highs came in at 88, with New Lows at 73, and for all intents and purposes, we got a third Hindenburg Omen Friday .

Whispers of Instability in the Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

There is little doubt that maturing institutionalized paradigms, which foster mounting imbalances of epic proportion, persist in the invisibly slow and torturous erosion across the fabric of collective cultural unity. When mounting imbalances inevitably turn unstable, one may surmise that dwindling unity and collectivism will be reserved for smaller and smaller cultural segments, and eventually dispersed amongst only the most vital of forces who feed upon it - namely the minority of embedded institutions who are most enriched by such deeply layered maladies.

Your Financial Edge - Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere and What Can Go Wrong - China / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

In this issue:
Your Financial Edge
Blame It on Stability
That Day of Reckoning
A Billion Here, A Billion There
Bubbles, Bubbles Everywhere
What Can Go Wrong: China
600 Home Runs, Calgary, and La Jollay

This week we look at length at an outstanding new book just hitting the bookstores by good friend Paul McCulley (of Pimco fame), called Your Financial Edge . The main themes will give me an opportunity to weave in a few thoughts about some recent data, and a lengthy telephone interview with Paul, done just before writing this week's letter, will bring us up to date on his current thinking. I think readers will take away a few good ideas, so let's jump right in.

Bear Stearns Caught in Subprime Mortgages Slime / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Bear Stearns is attempting a $3.2 billion dollar rescue of one of its hedge funds specializing in subprime mortgages. It has offered a deal to several of its creditors of the less leveraged of its two collapsing hedge funds whereby it will assume $3.2 billion of their debt in exchange for an agreement not to seize any of the funds' collateral for 90 days. Merrill Lynch has already seized $850 million of the funds most marketable assets and put them on the market, causing mutual funds and hedge funds holding mortgage backed securities to re-price their assets.

Predicting The Future / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Investmentscore.com

As investors our most valuable tool is definitely the crystal ball, but unfortunately we have yet to find a wizard that is willing to part with his. So if we do not have a crystal ball can we predict the future?

In our opinion the answer is in part, yes. An absolute prediction would be to call specific events at specific times with impeccable accuracy. We can not do this, but we do believe we can reasonably hypothesize what we think will happen in the markets. But what will give us the insight we require to invest accordingly?

Interest Rates Move Stocks / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Investors seeking to beat the market should be aware of the trends in interest rates. In the last couple of weeks we have seen longer term interest rates with the 10 year U.S. Treasury Note breaking through the 5% level. In response to the most recent rise in interest rates, stock price volatility increased causing investors to become more cautious about the stocks in their portfolios. The question is does this increase in interest rates signal a decline in the stock markets and in the price of stocks? Before answering that question, consider some background on interest rates.

China Stock Market 2007 vs NASDAQ 2000 / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Zeal_LLC

The phenomenal performance of this year's red-hot Chinese stock markets has led them to become the most-eagerly-watched financial markets on the planet. While even just a couple years ago few outside of China cared about its indigenous markets, today countless speculators around the globe carefully monitor stock-trading action in China .

And with traders increasingly looking to China with a mix of awe and trepidation, the financial media has been reflecting our growing interest by doing more reporting about what is happening within this awakening giant. Reading news articles detailing the stock-trading action underway in China is incredibly fascinating.

Bear Stearns and MBS Hedge Funds: What are the Real Risks Today? / Stock-Markets / Risk Analysis

By: Paul_Tustain

"...What people don't fully appreciate is the extent to which our financial system has geared up over the last twenty years to finance the worldwide residential housing boom..."

MOST SIGNIFICANT MARKET EVENTS cause an immediate and substantial price reaction, which makes it hard to profit from them. But sometimes there's a sort of slumber, when the market gazes sleepily about itself not quite sure what to do.

We may be experiencing one of them now.

Fools Gold - Risk of Shorting Stocks 130/30 / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Paul_Petillo

Risk is an interesting topic for investors. The balance between too much and the right amount are often fraught with problems, not the least of which is cost. But what happens when you openly embrace risk, stepping outside of the norm for the goal of increasing returns?

Pension plans have often found their ability to increase returns for their funds locked behind the rules of buying long. Buying long simply represents the purest marriage of research and instinct. Success was measured against traditional benchmarks such as the S&P 500 and it was against those indexes that fees for running funds were generally compared.

Pay attention to the Ratio of Leader Stocks to Broad Market Stocks ... / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

Every night, we measure the percentage "change of direction" of Leader Stocks and the stocks in the Broad Market. We then divide the two to get a Ratio of Leaders to Broad market stocks.

Leader stocks are named that for a very good reason ... they set the pace and direction of the market. When the Leadership Ratio is high, they "pull up the Broad market stocks".
