Stock Market Bears Finally Make Their Move..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

It took a long time to get rocking, but the bears have finally made a move that needs to be respected by everyone who plays this silly game. The large move lower across the board that has taken those key 50-day exponential moving averages, and put them in the rear view mirror on the S&P 500 and Dow. The Nasdaq is still playing with it, but the other key indexes are all below now, and did so with some force.

Stock Market Buy the Dip, Bail Out, Or Just Worry? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Sy_Harding

Here we are in August and the debate still continues as to whether the promised bounce-back from the winter slowdown took place, or if the economy is in an ongoing slump.

Why should there be any question?

The Fed assured us again at its FOMC meeting on Wednesday that “Growth in economic activity rebounded in the second quarter. Labor market conditions improved. . . . . Household spending appears to be rising moderately, and business fixed investment is advancing.” It did acknowledge that “the recovery in the housing sector remains slow.”

USD FMQ Carries on Growing Ddespite Tapering / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Alasdair_Macleod

June's FMQ components have now been released by the St Louis Fed, and it stands at a record $13.132 trillion. As can be seen in the chart above, it is $5.48 trillion more than an extension of the pre-Lehman crisis exponential growth trend. At this point readers not familiar with the construction of FMQ and its purpose may wish to refer to the original paper, here.

Stock Market Down for the Day and Month with a Bit of Drama / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short.US equity markets ended the month with a selloff. The S&P 500 and the Dow both posted their first monthly declines since January. The popular press has a grab-bag of explanations, most notably Argentina’s default, the chess match against Russia, and concerns that a Fed rate hike might come sooner than expected. The S&P 500 opened at its -0.25% intraday high and sold off in a couple of waves to its -2.00% close at its intraday low. The 1.79% daily trading range was at the 97th percentile for the year, and the daily decline was the fourth worst of 2014. The VIX volatility index was up 27.16%, by far its biggest jump of the year.

This is Bad News for U.S. Economy and Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Submissions

Harry Dent writes: Volatile markets are shaking the U.S. economy and geopolitical conflicts are intensifying. This is bad news.

Iraq is falling into civil war, like Syria did after the Arab Spring across North Africa; Israel is invading Gaza; a Malaysia airliner was shot down over Ukraine — by who knows whom; and two Ukrainian fighter jets were shot down by Russian rebels.

Fed Sends A Powerful Message To The Stock Market Bears..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

As I've been saying for the past few years, the Fed from Bernanke to Yellen has worked hard at fulfilling the duties of their job description. To keep the economy moving along through their actions regarding the stock market. The key to this long-term bull market has been, is, and always will be low rates. Nothing else. RATES! Ms. Yellen was being paid special attention to today, because the world wanted to know when she would speak out loud the dirty little secret about when rates would begin their cycle up. The market was ready to heave once the word was uttered out loud. It wasn't.

Stock Market Parabolic Collapse - Sowing the Seeds of the Next Depression / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Toby_Connor

In their infinity wisdom the Fed thinks they have rescued the economy by inflating asset prices and creating a so called "wealth affect". In reality they have created the conditions for the next Great Depression.

Over the last two years the Fed has increasingly intervened in the market to prevent normal corrective moves. As you can see in the chart below this has allowed the stock market to transition from what could've been a normal bull market into a gigantic parabolic bubble.

How to Profit from the Russia Ukraine Conflict / Stock-Markets / Russia

By: Submissions

Ted Baumann writes: Russia has a history of sacrificing its own cities and people before giving in to the demands and confrontations of dissidents and aggressors. The situation is no different today. And for investors concerned with developing a fortified portfolio of diversified investments, it’s a situation you must pay attention to.

During 1941 to 1945, when it wore the mantle of the Soviet Union, Russia suffered almost 30,000,000 deaths — in combat, through Nazi atrocities and from civilian famine and disease. That was almost one-fifth of its pre-war population. The war was tilted so far out of Russia’s favor that at one point almost four-fifths of its European landmass was under Nazi control.

Greenspan: U.S. Economy Running Out of Buffer; Stock Market to See Significant Correction / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Bloomberg

In an interview with Bloomberg's Betty Liu, former Federal Reserve Chair Dr. Alan Greenspan said the U.S. is "running out of buffer in economy," "lacks fiscal resources," and has "no way to find new revenues."

Greenspan said equity markets will see a decline at some point after surging for the past several years, "The stock market has recovered so sharply for so long, you have to assume somewhere along the line we will get a significant correction."

Back To Bad Bank Bailouts / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Andrew_McKillop

Oh No Its Cyprus Again
Depositors only want their money back – and that is the only thing they can't have. Cypriots were understandably enraged at the so-called Eurogroup Triumvirate’s decision some 18 months ago to resolve “technical insolvency” of the two largest banks in the country with what are now well known and called “bail-ins”. Cypriot banks were at that time more than just “technically” insolvent and the Triumvirate (the ECB, the European Commission and European Financial Stability fund) could dictate taking away depositors' savings to rescue one of Cyprus's two most-troubled large banks.

Five Industries Worried About Peak Oil / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: OilPrice_Com

The debate over the impact of peak oil has been raging for decades. Although few deny that the end of mass oil consumption is drawing nearer, educated estimates now range between 2020 and 2030. But more important than the timeframe of peak oil are its consequences. Some seek to spell the end of life as we know it, so reliant is the world upon black gold. Others, equally extreme in their views, embrace the news, looking forward to a time when humanity will magically clean up its act.

Stock Market Hunkers Down / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short. This morning’s release of July Consumer Confidence surprised to the upside, a finding the rather conflicts with the latest Gallup survey of Economic Confidence. But in the real world, the key headlines were about the announcement of sanctions against Russia. The S&P 500 made a shallow arc higher in the morning, hitting its intraday high shortly after the Consumer Confidence report was released. It then sold off in a couple of waves to close at its -0.45% intraday low.

It begins last Saturday. On a trip to the local supermarket, I saw something you just don’t see every day.

Lindsey Forecast Dow Stocks Bull Market is Over / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Ed_Carlson

Regular readers will remember the column posted two weeks ago as well as last week’s column confirming the bearish forecast by showing the positive divergence in the VIX which is expected a market tops.

It is important to be aware that George Lindsay admonished his newsletter subscribers that his methods were to be applied only to the Dow Jones Industrials index and not the broader indices. He explained this caveat that using the Dow (“or an even narrower index”) will avoid the constant turn-over of individual components in those broader indices.

Stock Market Down Hard Then Reversal..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

No one reading this article will argue that things are deteriorating technically. We also have fundamental headaches, such as we saw from the real-estate world today. But focusing on technical action, the bears certainly have made some progress. A nice gap down now in the way of the bulls making their task of sustainable upside far more difficult. That said, we started up a hair this morning, only to see the futures fall apart just after the open. A real swoon lower with the S&P 500 falling well over ten points quite rapidly. It looked bad as the 20-day exponential moving average was getting taken out with relative ease.

Will Crashing Commodities Crash the Stock Market? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Clif_Droke

There are some analysts out there who maintain that the precipitous decline in commodity prices this year bodes ill for the stock market.

Witness for example the dramatic drop in the price of corn. Below is a chart of the Teucrium Corn Fund (CORN), a proxy for corn futures. As you can see, corn prices are at multi-year lows right now. This is ironic given that the mainstream media assured us earlier this year that higher ag commodity prices were on the way.

Stock Market Bubble Warning / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Everyone has an opinion as to whether or not US stock indices are in a bubble at the present (July, 2014). Given a moment’s reflection, I came up with ten reasons US stocks are indeed in a bubble.

1) Fed Chair Yellen expressed concern in mid-July (2014) that certain asset classes appeared to be stretched in terms of valuation. The three that she mentioned were social media stocks, biotechs, and small caps. This is a bit disturbing on several levels. First, Fed people are bankers and not economists or investment experts. As bankers, the Fed only knows one thing. That is, they have the power to steal money from a sovereign Treasury and give that money to their banker friends who help the Fed to control the world. Second, Ms. Yellen may indeed be correct.
