NASDAQ and S&P 500 in Sync with Sept/October Drop / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Brad_Gudgeon

The charts below of the QQQ (NASDAQ 100 ETF proxy) and the S&P 500 show that the US stock markets are almost entirely in sync with the September 19-October 15, 2014 drop.  The main difference is that they are tracking at a slightly lesser rate of 94.9% of the former drop.

Reality Always Wins… But Never on Schedule / Stock-Markets / Investing 2015

By: Casey_Research

By Louis James, Chief Metals & Mining Investment Strategist

“Expect the worst and you won’t be disappointed” is true enough, but it’s a miserable way to go through life.

For investors, expecting the worst is paralyzing, a reason to do nothing.

But when a market gets beaten up the way the natural-resource sector has been over the last few years, pessimism comes to dominate the chatter in boardrooms, blogs, and cocktail parties the way mold takes over a shower. It’s a blight.

Stock Market Three Peaks/Domed House Part II / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Ed_Carlson

In his 1969 brochure One Year Later: A follow-up of the Three Peaks and Domed House George Lindsay wrote that the pattern lasts roughly 2 years and 2 months from the beginning to the end of a bull market. Looking back over the 29 occurrences of the pattern in the Dow (since 1901) it can be seen that the pattern lasted significantly longer than that on just five occasions. Those bull markets that ended in 1961, 1966, 1981, 1987, and the current bull market, all endured for more than three years and concluded a Three Peaks/Domed House pattern.

Stock Market Keeps Them Guessing..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

Just when it seemed the market would finally get a strong pullback to get rid of all this froth, it did an about face and rallies hard. Four nice gap downs to make the environment unhealthy, only to see two strong gap ups. Leaves them all guessing, and, of course, that is the intention of the big money. To always leave them guessing and getting emotional. The odds of this move would have seemed almost impossible considering the look of the monthly-index charts, which are basically deathly looking if you're bullish. That said, nothing comes easily for the bears in a bull market. We've discussed this quite frequently. Even if we're topping, the process is very slow, and can take many months.

SPX Hits Triple Resistance / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Instead of 5 waves, SPX is finishing off Wave [c] as an Ending Diagonal, which is a bit more complex. However, as of 3:00 it has encountered a trifecta of probable resistances. The first is Wave (v) of [c] equals Wave (i) of [c] at 2079.60. The second is the 50% Fib retracement level at 2079.30. The third is Short-term resistance at 2081.06, just 8 ticks above the high made at 3:03 pm at 2080.99.

Conflicts Of Interest Between Governments & Retirement Investors / Stock-Markets / Investing 2015

By: Dan_Amerman

Most retirement account and other long term investors continue to follow the same financial strategies they've been following for decades, believing that the "science" of modern finance will reliably build wealth and security for them.

Meanwhile, for some years now and as a matter of openly stated policy, the Federal Reserve, European Central Bank and Bank of Japan, as well as the central banks of other nations have sought to create what are known as "negative real rates of return".

By: Paul_Rejczak

Our intraday outlook is bearish, and our short-term outlook is bearish:

Intraday outlook (next 24 hours): bearish
Short-term outlook (next 1-2 weeks): bearish
Medium-term outlook (next 1-3 months): neutral
Long-term outlook (next year): bullish

Preparing for the Next Stocks Bear Market - Forecast 2015-2016 / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Gary_Savage

So with the advent of global QE, and zero interest rates, have central banks unlocked the key to perpetual bull markets? Let’s just say, I doubt it.

They have managed to stretch some of the multi-year cycles, and hold off the bear much longer than most have anticipated, but I don’t think they have discovered the secret to infinite prosperity.

As I said, the implementation of global QE has stretched some of the longer term cycles, and that is the first thing I’m going to explore in this article. Prior to 2000 there was a very clear four year cycle in the stock market. Roughly every four years stocks would move down into an exceptionally vicious decline, usually associated with either a recession, or some kind of financial debacle.

Stock Market Still Not Happy...Monthly Charts Troubling..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

Overheard in Jack's Trading Room: "I have only been a member for a few months, but have learned so much from you and all the other quality members on this site. The honesty, integrity and leadership you bring to this service is hard to find these days." -- "Cowgirl" - 3/13/15

And that doesn't mean we won't try much higher again. If a market is topping it is EXTREMELY unusual to not test the old highs, not only once, but potentially three or four times before trying to sell without coming back up. Like gold years ago, it took four or five attempts for the bubble to pop. The bulls would not give up the ship easily. They were trained to see higher prices. They were trained to buy pullbacks. It took many, many months for the market to top. Now it is true that we are dealing with unprecedented levels of froth, and it is true that the monthly charts are deathly, so it doesn't have to keep trying back up. But that is normal protocol, so we have to give the bulls the benefit of the doubt that it won't be any different this time around.

Why The Stock Market Must Drop Next Week! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Brad_Gudgeon

In the previous two articles, I explained that I have been looking for a pull back in the markets.  Now with new data, I can boldly say when I believe the bottom will occur and the best odds of a price target on the S&P 500.  The answers lie in the chart below. Using Elliott Wave and Fibonacci, I have determined a price of S&P 500 1957/58 and a date of March 20-23.  I can also say with near exactness that we should fall nearly 4.3% on the week.

US Stock Market Waiting on the USD / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Tony_Caldaro

The week started off at SPX 2071 and rallied to 2083 on Monday. Then a Tuesday gap down opening carried the SPX to 2040 by Wednesday. Thursday’s gap up opening and rally to SPX 2066, was nearly completely reversed on Friday’s gap down opening. A choppy week. For the week the SPX/DOW lost 0.75%, the NDX/NAZ lost 1.40%, and the DJ World index lost 1.40%. On the economic front reports came in mixed. On the uptick: wholesale inventories, export prices, the WLEI, plus weekly jobless claims and the treasury deficit improved. On the downtick: retail sales, the PPI, import prices, consumer sentiment, and the MMIS. Next week is the FOMC meeting, plus Industrial production, reports on Housing, and Options expiration.

Michael Lewis is Right “Spoofing” Proves Market Rigged on Daily Basis / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: EconMatters

Brent Spoofing & HFT

As the European Market closes today and oil has some bearish sentiment to the trading day, one of the common techniques is to bang the European close in the Brent contract which being a much less liquid contract than WTI can be quite profitable. Usually this takes place around 10:00 to 10:30 am CST but with the time changes this week everything is pushed back an hour here in the US with the European close now being 11:00 to 11:30 am CST.

Sorry But This Is Not 1997 for the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Sy_Harding

Several months ago I wrote of how super bull markets that last nine or ten years have been once in a generation situations, the last ones being those of the 1920’s and the 1990’s, but that there were enough similarities to 1997 in the current bull market that it could possibly make it into that category.

In 1997, the 1990’s bull market had also been underway for six years, which had the market already overvalued by traditional measurements. However, investors were convinced it was under the protection of the Fed and the ‘Greenspan Put’, and the bull market accelerated further to the upside (into what became the infamous 2000 bubble).

Free Money; What Could Go Wrong? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: Doug_Wakefield

Isn’t all of this QE (quick and easy) money great? When the Federal Reserve shut down their latest Quantitative Easing program last October (the largest “free money” scheme in American history), the Bank of Japan was ready to expand their largest “free money” scheme, and starting on March 9th this week, after many attempts to kick start its own “free money” scheme in Europe, the European Central Bank kicked off its own Quantitative Easing program.

Pi Day - Largest Reversal in Stock Market History / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

Welcome to Pi day, the unluckiest day in the stock market. This is the date of largest reversal in stock market history. This separates the market from a regular “buy the dip” opportunity to “sell the rally,” or better yet, “Get out of Dodge.”

Actually, Pi day is Sunday, so I am taking some liberty here, since the markets aren’t open over the weekend. Notice the symmetry here in the monthly chart. Super Cycle Wave V took exactly 6.02 years, which is 314.16 weeks. That same with Super Cycle Wave b.

The Stock Market Bull is Charging Ahead! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Puru_Saxena

BIG PICTURE - After several years, the Federal Reserve has passed the QE baton to the European Central Bank (ECB) and this should extend the ongoing bull-market in common stocks. You will recall that throughout last year, we were expecting the ECB to unleash a full-scale bond buying program and Mr. Draghi's recent decision has validated our view.

If our assessment is correct, the ongoing QE initiative will assist common stocks and probably ensure the continuation of the primary uptrend until at least September 2016. At that point, if the ECB decides to extend its bond buying program, the bull-market may get another lease of life!

Dow Stock Index Embrace of Apple Reveals New Paths to Profits / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

Michael E. Lewitt writes: The announcement last week that Apple Inc. (Nasdaq: AAPL) would replace AT&T Inc. (NYSE: T) in the venerable Dow Jones Industrial Average's 30 top companies reflects an important trend that investors can play to their advantage. Today, I'll tell you how.

Previously, the biggest shake-up of the Dow came in September 2013 when Goldman Sachs, Nike, and Visa knocked out Alcoa, Bank of America, and Hewlett-Packard.

Stock Market Staying Mostly Oversold.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

When playing this very silly game you look for changes from the trend that was in place. We have spent a long time watching just about every attempt at selling being bought up quite rapidly. The bears banging their heads in frustration as the market refused to sell. It spent a long time basing but then made a final leg higher that has now seemingly come to an end. Four gap downs still open and counting. No gap ups to counter. The technical damage quite serious for the bulls to have to overcome.
