The End Game - Case for Deflation is Quietly Strengthening / Stock-Markets / Deflation

By: Jonathan_Davis

It is interesting that, nearly 5 years after the setting of the EMERGENCY interest (Base) rate of 0.5% we are still at 0.5% and our illustrious ‘capitalist’ government is borrowing £110 Billions per annum (to add to the admitted-to debt of £1100 Bns and the off balance sheet further liabilities of £4000 Bns).  Carney, at the Bank of England, and Osborne, the Chancellor and Alexander, his puppy, tell us the recovery is locked in.  And most believe them.

And yet we have an emergency interest rate and the govt is borrowing £110Bns pa.  Locked in???  It is all about bailing out bankers, the hyper rich and the political establishment.  This is not capitalism.  It is socialism for the rich and powerful.  And I very much doubt we will see capitalism again for at least a generation, if at all.  This is step by step encroaching Marxism and surely everyone knows how that ends?

What Stagflation Means for Investors / Stock-Markets / Stagflation

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The Bureau of Labor Statistics just reported that inflation in the U.S. economy increased by 0.3% in the month of December and that the Consumer Price Index (CPI) for the entire year of 2013 increased by only 1.5%. (Source: Bureau of Labor Statistics, January 16, 2014.)

Is inflation in the U.S. economy really this low?

Stock Market Spooked by China and Q4 Earnings / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Before the US markets opened the Flash China Manufacturing PMI came in at 49.6 in January (versus 50.5 in December), a six-month low. Markets around the world sold off at the unexpected news. The S&P 500 opened at its -0.14% intraday high and sold off to its -1.34% intraday low at 2 PM, when buyer’s apparently sniffed an opportunity. The index closed with a trimmed loss of 0.89%. The ongoing mixed bag of Q4 earnings didn’t help.

What Could go Wrong for Stocks and Right for Gold in 2014 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Clif_Droke

Are investors too bullish on the stock market’s prospects for 2014 and too bearish for gold’s? It would certainly seem that way based on the near unanimity of analyst consensus. Most institutional analysts have published bullish forecasts for equities in 2014 and a bearish, or at least cautionary, outlook for gold. The favorable forecast for stocks and bearish gold outlook is based on the assumption that deflation remains at bay for the coming year.

SPX Stock Market Sell Signal Confirmed / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

My best reading on the decline so far is the Minute Wave [i] may be complete and Minute Wave [ii] of Minor Wave C] may now be underway.  Wave (c) of Minute Wave [ii] has a potential target between 1829.00 and 1833.00.  The Minute Wave [iii] target may be near 1775.00, with a minimum of 1800.00. 

SPX may spend the rest of today bouncing to its 1833.00 target.  Tomorrow we may see the larger Wave [iii] decline.

Gold and S&P500 Inverse Relationship - Elliott Wave Forecast / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Dan_Stinson

Gold has bounced as a double bottom and it is likely that we should see further upside. The downside for the metals and especially Silver has been bearish, but the declined for the metals was relentlessly while the equity markets have gone parabolic. This is a very substantial inverse relationship and suggests reversals for both. Parabolic advances always end poorly and further upside for the metals is expected after the recent over sold conditions.

Weak Q1 Corporate Earnings to Finally Trip Up Illogical Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Corporate Earnings

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: Stock markets are only as healthy as their stocks—well, at least they technically should be. But despite its stellar year in 2013, the S&P 500’s component stocks weren’t supporting the growth with strong revenue and earnings growth.

I might sound like a broken record, but the fact of the matter is that the S&P 500 was fuelled by the Federal Reserve and its $85.0-billion-a-month quantitative easing efforts and artificially low interest rates, and the fact that businesses were streamlining operations and implementing aggressive share repurchase programs.

Stock Market Closing In On S&P500 1850... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

The S&P 500 has refused to give it up. It's in a trading range from 1812 support horizontally to 1850 resistance, which is also horizontal support. It's a 2% range, and within 2% can come a lot of emotion. However, it's been riding off the 20-day exponential moving average lately currently at 1833. This tells me the bulls are readying themselves for another move up, so the bears better get busy and fast. If we can clear 1850, and close above with a little force, it means the bears will have to take inventory of what they're holding. That also means they will likely want to lighten up, thus, some added fuel from short covering.

Has US Already Sown Seeds for Next Macro Financial Markets Deflation Crisis? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: John_Mauldin

Greg Weldon has long been my favorite slicer and dicer of data – his charts and insights on charts really help me keep my eyes peeled. But in order to get across to us the drastic state of the economy as we plunge headlong into 2014 – a year that we all know will be pivotal – Greg has felt it necessary to resort to a rather trenchant metaphor from the year just past. Yes, says Greg, the economy is … Breaking Bad.

But – listen up now – bad is now good. At least temporarily.

Good, because bad macroeconomic data means an ongoing (if slightly tapering) supply of monetary steroids (Greg's term) will be forthcoming from our pushers, the central banks of the developed world.

Stock Market Overbought Consolidation Continues / 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 (after this bull market is over), 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 - As a result of minor cycles due to bottom in late February, a short-term top appears to be in the making.

Why it is Important for Bankers to Attend Davos / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Bloomberg

Bank of America President/CEO, Brian Moynihan joined Bloomberg Television's Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle today live from Davos and said trading operations were profitable almost every day last quarter as the lender helped clients adjust to the prospect of higher interest rates, "I think we made money on every trading day except for two or three. Quarter after quarter, that's been trust. It's because it's a client business." Moynihan also said:

Did We See Stock Market Cycle Top Last Week? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

I have been reviewing my long-term charts and have been updating them. I was surprised when I discovered that today (January 18) is exactly 5.16 years from the November 21, 2008 low in the NDX. I have often been referring to the NDX Cycles, since they seem to be much more accurate than the Dow/SPX Cycles. The deviations from the measurements above are often within 3 days and no longer than 8 days, so this is a wonderful monitoring chart. I am constantly amazed at the relationships between the Cycles and the Waves.

Shocking Stocks, Bonds and Dollar Market Predictions for 2014… And the Evidence to Prove Them / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Robert Hsu writes: Each January, we hear a chorus of pundits making predictions about where the markets will go in the 12 months ahead. The number and volume level of the "predictions" is matched only by the utter lack of evidence to back them up.

These talking heads will be the first to shout "I told you so!" But when they get it wrong, well... the silence is deafening. Their predictions are of little use to us.

Stocks 2014 - It’s All About Corproate Earnings / Stock-Markets / Corporate Earnings

By: John_Mauldin

Piloting on the Mississippi River was not work to me; it was play — delightful play, vigorous play, adventurous play – and I loved it… – Mark Twain

In the 1850s, flat-bottom paddlewheel steamboats coursed up and down the mighty Mississippi, opening up the Midwest to trade and travel. But it was treacherous travel. The current was constantly shifting the sandbars underneath the placid, smoothly rolling surface of the river. What was sufficient depth one week on a stretch of the river might become a treacherous sandbar the next, upon which a steamboat could run aground, perhaps even breaching the hull and sinking the ship. To prevent such a catastrophe, a crewman would throw a long rope with a lead weight at the end as far in front of the boat as possible (and thus the crewman was called the leadman). The rope was usually twenty-five fathoms long and was marked at increments of two, three, five, seven, ten, fifteen, seventeen and twenty fathoms. A fathom was originally the distance between a man's outstretched hands, but since this could be quite imprecise, it evolved to be six feet.

Pandoras Box 2014 - The Largest Financial Collapse in History / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Ty_Andros

Looking for an accident/black swan

As we begin 2014, it is important to recognize the levels of INSANITY currently existent in the world  enabling us to understand the apocryphal nature of the times we live in and prepare ourselves to meet the challenges it represents.  The world is leveraged to an extent that has never before seen in history! Debt now masquerades as NOMINAL growth and REAL growth has ceased.  Headline economic reports are now nothing more than POLITICALLY CORRECT HOAXES to FOOL the public at large and mask the betrayal of the public by the leaders who hold the reins of power.  ECONOMIC Stagnation emerged after the 2008 Global financial crisis and in real terms has NEVER ENDED!
