Stocks Stealth Bull Market Trend Forecast 2013 and Beyond / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Dow Jones stock market index last closed at 13,992, having traded to a new intra-day bull market high of 14,022 and is well within 200 points of the all time closing high of 14,164 set on 9th October 2007 which has left many investors who have missed what amounts to a 4 year bull market asking the question whether they should buy now or not?

In this 2nd of a two part series I will seek to conclude towards a detailed trend forecast for stock market for the whole of 2013 and into early 2014.

US Stock Market Uptrend Continues While Europe Weakens / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Caldaro

A choppy but interesting week. The market had 1% swings several days this week, after it had remained in a 1% range for the entire previous week. In the end, new uptrend highs and the uptrend reached the OEW 1523 pivot range on friday. For the week the SPX/DOW were mixed, and the NDX/NAZ were +0.45%. Foreign markets did not do as well. The Asian markets were -0.3%, European markets were -1.3%, and the DJ World index was -0.4%. Economic reports for the week were light, but remained with a positive bias. On the uptick: factory orders, the monetary base and the WLEI, plus weekly jobless claims and the trade deficit improved. On the downtick: ISM services, consumer credit and wholesale inventories. Next week we get retail sales, industrial production and consumer sentiment.

The Fed is Beginning to Remove the Punchbowl… Are You Ready For What’s Coming? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Graham_Summers

A month ago, we noted that the Fed was becoming increasingly splintered about how to proceed with its monetary policy. At that time we noted that the latest FOMC minutes indicated that the Fed was in fact conflicted about QE 4 despite its public appearance of being unified:

Consider its recent FOMC minutes released on January 3 2013.

Stock Markets Remain at Extreme Levels, Asset Class Correlations / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Pallotta

For the week ending February 8, 2013, the SPX was up 0.3%, the Russell small caps were up 0.3% and the COMP was up 0.5%.

The only noticeable divergence within the indices remains the Nasdaq 100 which has failed to take out prior highs and has shown a clear loss of momentum. Technically it has violated model support and therefore is profiled as flat.

Small, mid and large cap indices remain in an uptrend as daily support has not failed though they are showing some loss of upside momentum. If you are long equity, stops that are recommend are roughly 1,500 on the S&P500, 902 on the Russell and 13,850 on the Dow.

Stock Market New Interim High / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Doug Short writes: The S&P 500 charged from the opening gate, after having had an hour to consider the good news in today’s better than expected December Trade Balance report. The December improvement will likely lead to an upward revision to Q4 GDP in the Second Estimate. The index hit its intraday high about an hour after the open and then zigzagged in a narrow range to a closing gain of 0.57%, not far off the intraday high. Today’s performance salvaged the week, which logged a gain of 0.31% from last Friday, setting a new interim high.

Stock Market Recovery Continues To Topple ‘Big-Picture’ Theories! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Sy_Harding

There’s never a shortage of ‘big picture’ theories, usually of the gloom and doom variety. They certainly sell books; often cause anxiety, sometimes even fear. But they almost never come to pass.

In the mid-1940s, as World War II entered its final stage, ‘big-picture’ theorists warned that the pending demobilization of 10 million men and women serving in the military would send unemployment into double-digits and the economy into a serious recession, probably a depression. They warned "when the war ends the government can't just disband the military, close down munitions factories and stop building ships. The result would be disastrous". They sure made it sound convincing, pouring out impressive statistics that supported their theories.

U.S. Economy Death Cross - Trouble Coming to Paradise / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Gordon_T_Long

The Macro Indicators are signaling there is potential trouble coming to paradise.

Goldman Sachs points out in a recent study that there is a remarkably strong correlation which has emerged as a result of global central bank policy initiatives. The steely eyed Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge points out:

We have noted the odd cyclicality in macro data (and its leading effect on the market) and it seems Goldman Sachs has also noticed that something is different this time. For 15 years, the seasonal patterns in Goldman's macro index have been mild to totally negligible; but since 2009, something changed.

Monetary Flood, Nothing At All, Then All at Once / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

Everywhere we look, investors suddenly see nothing but blue skies, plain sailing ahead. Their change of heart makes us nervous, writes Adrian Ash at BullionVault.

New York's S&P index is back where it stood in July 2007 - right before the global credit crunch first bit, eating more than half the stock market's value inside 2 years...

Stock Market Final Probe at the Top is Underway / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The Head & Shoulders pattern in the NDX was nullified by this morning’s spike higher. It was replaced by another Orthodox Broadening Top. This is still within the prior OBT made over a month ago. The downside gap also remains. The urge to reflate is obvious in these repeating fractals. Broadening formations are rare and reveal confusion and a lack of leadership in the index. That is why the break-down will be severe, possibly monstrous. No one will take the blame for it, of course.

Central Banks Rigging the Markets, Regulators Blind to LIBOR Fraud / Stock-Markets / Banksters

By: Brady_Willett

Thanks to a series of colossal failures that were impossible to hide, we now know that Futures Commission Merchants (FCMs) could instantly access billions of dollars that did not belong to them. Thanks to incriminating emails and ongoing settlements, we now know that a horde of banks can collude to rig key interest rate benchmarks for decades. This is what we now know after decades of malfeasance. Just imagine, then, what still goes on behind the curtain.

Stock Market Insiders Head For the Exits, Do They Know Something "We" Don't Know? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Whenever the markets begin to look toppy like they do now, I turn to short-term indicators to help me figure out "what's next" for the markets. It complements the fundamental analysis I rely on for the big picture.

Some people - lots of people, in fact - will tell you that this is a wasted exercise. Predicting the markets, they say, can't be done. I disagree if for no other reason that if that were true, guys like Jim Rogers, Warren Buffett, Steve Jobs, Richard Branson and Carlos Slim wouldn't be the legends they are today.

Possible Clearing of the Economic / Financial Cloud of Uncertainty / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Brian_Bloom

Summary and conclusion - The (selected) charts are pointing to a rising probability that the cloud of uncertainty that overhangs the world economy – with particular reference to sovereign debt – may be clearing. Specifically, the evidence is (so far, tentatively) suggesting that the banks can be expected to win the war for control over the global economy.

Implications of this are moderately bearish for gold, seriously bearish for gold shares, moderately bullish for the nominal economy, moderately bearish for the real economy; and one implication is that investment in bank shares may be both prudent and profitable.

The analysis below supports the argument of some, that the central bankers’ strategy for repaying sovereign debt will be to deliberately engineer an environment of negative real interest rates against a background of moderate inflation. If, coupled with this, legislation is passed to “manage” the proportion of retirement savings that is invested in government bonds, then this will allow governments to rob Peter (the nouvea riche wealthy and middle class) to pay Paul (those who have lent money to the sovereign borrowers).

Investing In a World of Make Believe / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: John_Browne

In recent years, a high degree of economic, financial, and political uncertainty has resulted in acute volatility in stocks, real estate, commodities and precious metals. I believe that another aggravating factor has been the increasing skepticism through which the investing public views government statistics and statements.

The Global Dominance Of Capital Rent / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Andrew_McKillop

IT STARTED IN EUROPE
With no possible surprise, the credit collapse since 2008 has its most sombre effects in Europe. Reasons for this include the very origins of the capital rent economy. The sterile debate between opponents and proponents of the state controlled economy, versus the free market economy, ignores the reality in all "mature economies" and firstly in Europe of the financiarized or capital rent dominated economy.

Stock Market Sentiment Getting Up There...Not Yet At A Total Sell Signal...Caution For Now.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

When sentiment gets up to these levels you have to take notice and ask yourself about how much more upside there is before things come down hard. Historically it takes 40%, or slightly above, before a bear market starts for the short-term in order to unwind. In 2007 we saw it reach 42.5% before the crash in the stock market, and the same crash happened in 2011, with a 41.6% reading. We're at 33.6% with bears still above 20%, although real close at 21.1%.

Stock Market Gaps and Other Nasty Formations / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Here is a closer examination of the NDX. Starting from left to right, you can see the huge island gap left on January 2. The NDX closed on December 31 at 2660.93. The Head is also an island reversal pattern, with the gap left open. You may say that the rally in the right shoulder to 2768.63 filled the gap. That may be so. That still leaves the massive gap underneath the current island formation. The Head & shoulders pattern will either fill the gap or, as I have suggested, leave another gap on the way down. The fascinating part is the closing price in the NDX on December 31 was 2660.93, only 78 ticks from the Head & Shoulders Minimum Target.

Stock Market Euphoria as Fed Drives Up Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: EWI

The following is a sample from Elliott Wave International's new 40-page report, The State of the Global Markets -- 2013 Edition: The Most Important Investment Report You'll Read This Year. This article was originally published in the October 2012 issue of The Elliott Wave Financial Forecast.

When government gets into the act of speculation, the top is usually way past having occurred. Government is the ultimate crowd, every decision being made by committee. It is always acting on the last trend, the one that is already over. (For example, the Federal government passed securities laws to prevent the 1929 crash...in 1934.) -- The Elliott Wave Theorist

Stock Market Reversal / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Doug Short writes: The action in today’s S&P 500 was more or less a reversal of what we saw yesterday. The index surged at the open, rallied to mid-morning, leveled out for a couple of hours and then rose to its intraday high, up 1.29%, just before the final hour of trading. Some profit taking trimmed the gain for the day to 1.04%. This is the second best percent gain of 2013 — exceeded only by the 2.54% liftoff on first trading day of the year in celebration of the Fiscal Cliff resolution.

Stock Market Bulls Should Be Careful Despite an Impressive January / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: It’s amazing how resilient the equities market has been in spite of the concerns toward the budgetary cuts and debt ceiling, the eurozone’s stalling and debt, and the earnings risk.

The current equities market has some bull legs; it could advance higher, driven by more encouraging earnings and economic news, which has been positive.
