Will Argentina’s Debt Crisis Rock the Global Financial Markets? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Clif_Droke

One of the recurring headlines adding to the “wall of worry” is the battle between U.S. hedge funds and the Argentina government over payment of the country’s bond debt stemming from the country’s 1998-2002 economic crisis. Pundits worry that a default is imminent and that the country faces a bleak future if fails to pay hedge fund managers $1.3 billion by a court-mandated July 30 deadline.

Stock Market Bears Turn / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

So maybe that means we gap up tomorrow, or maybe someone will finally the initiative and run this thing one way or the other. It is absolutely ridiculous how this market is gapping up, literally, every day. Yet the market goes nowhere as the trend is your turn, and then my turn. Each side is having their single day of action, and then forfeiting it over to the other side the very next day. Unusual to say the least. This type of behavior is often seen at major tops, but you can't be sure if that's what's happening here.

Stock Market One More Pull Back / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are in their down phases, and if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep decline into late 2014. However, the Fed policy of keeping interest rates low has severely curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - One final high needed to produce the start of an intermediate correction.

Why the Stock Market Is STILL Cheap / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: People think U.S. stocks are expensive...

Yes, they have gone up a lot... But according to our favorite measure of stock market value, stocks are NOT expensive.

It's a simple indicator, but it encompasses the important stuff. And right now, it's telling us you could make double-digit profits in stocks over the next 12 months...

Choppy Stock Market in Recent Weeks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

Last week we had four gap openings, three to the downside, and the market traded to SPX 1953 on Thursday before ending the week at 1968. This week we had four gap openings again, three to the upside, and the market traded to SPX 1956 on Thursday before ending the week at 1978. Meanwhile during all this volatility the SPX has yet to hit the bull market high at 1986 achieved the week before all this began. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.70%, the NDX/NAZ were +0.65%, and the DJ World index was +0.45%. On the economic front positive reports outpaced negative reports nine to six. On the uptick: the NY/Philly FED, retail sales, business inventories, the PPI, industrial production, the NAHB, leading indicators and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: export/import prices, housing starts, building permits, consumer sentiment and the WLEI. Next week we get reports on home sales, durable goods and the CPI.

Is The Stocks Bull Market Over? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Austin_Galt

Well, what a hammering the markets took on Thursday! There’s always a reason for this move or that and the Malaysian Airlines crash near the border of Ukraine and Russia and its potential consequences was the main driver in this case. However, we are right smack bang in the time zone for a top so it’s no surprise to see the markets start to head down. But the question remains, is the 5 year bull market in stocks now done? Well, it is way too early to confirm that. Perhaps a better question would be, is the current cycle top in?

Will Stock Market Investors Get Out In Time This Time? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Sy_Harding

It is normal and understandable that investor confidence grows as paper profits in a long rally or bull market pile up. It’s therefore normal and inevitable that investor sentiment will be at its most bullish for that cycle by the time a rally or bull market tops out.

However, it is also true that as the old Wall Street legend goes, ‘They don’t ring a bell at the top’. So how can investors who want to avoid the next meltdown, and have told themselves that this time they will, know when it’s time to act?

Stock Market - Is It 1999 All Over Again? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Clif_Droke

The ebullient mood on Wall Street today was stimulated by a rash of merger and acquisition announcements.

Consider the following: In the energy sector, Kodiak Oil & Gas (KOG) agreed to be acquired by Whiting Petroleum (WLL), resulting in a sizable jump for both stocks. Among industrials, URS Corp. (URS) agreed to be acquired by Aecom (ACM), leading to 10-12% leaps for both stocks. Among health care companies, Shire Pharmaceuticals (SPHG) was reported to have accepted a $53 billion takeover bid AbbVie (ABBV); also, Mylan (MYL) announced a $5.3 billion deal to purchase a segment of Abbot (ABT).

Stock Market SPX Highs A Fed Illusion / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

The surreal US stock markets have continued melting up in recent months, spurred ever higher by the Federal Reserve’s money printing and jawboning.  The resulting record highs in the headline indexes have been widely trumpeted by Wall Street as evidence of a strong secular bull underway, with years still left to run higher.  But these records are misleading, mere illusions conjured by the Fed’s relentless inflation.

Geopolitical Event Tanks the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short. The apparent missile attack that brought down a Malaysian Airlines passenger jet with 295 passengers and crew also tanked today’s markets. The Eurozone’s Stoxx 50 fell 1.41%. The US markets also closed in the deep red with the S&P 500 down 1.18%, fractionally off its 1.31% intraday low about 15 minutes before the final bell. A CNBC afternoon news item puts takes a glass-half-full perspective with in a piece entitled “Market reaction to Malaysia jet crash could be short-lived“.

Beware of Flashy Stock Repurchases When The Market Is on The Rise / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Andrey Dashkov

Retail giant Bed Bath & Beyond just announced plans to buy back another $2 billion in shares, which the company will start doing after it completes its current share repurchase program. You’ve seen it before: Press releases emphasize that buybacks return value to shareholders, analysts sometimes rely on repurchases to spot a stock to write up next, and management likes to tout their focus on shareholder returns. But what’s the real story? Why would a company buy its own shares?
