How the Fed Creates Stocks Bull and Bear Markets / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Clif_Droke

Bull and bear markets don't just happen - they're created by the Federal Reserve. While few investors dispute the power that Fed interest rate policy has on the market, the extent to which it influences the direction of stock prices in both directions is often downplayed. Moreover, the health of the economy is often decided by the Fed's interest rate policy.

Is the Fed Setting Up the Mother of All Stock Shorts? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Jesse

The timing may be tricky, but such severe distortions in valuation as shown in the chart below can often set up special opportunities for investment profits when the eventual reversion to the mean, or norm, occurs.

SPX to Join GOLD in Market Panic Cycle? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

After much deliberation and calculations I have concluded that the blue Master Cycle (starting June 4, 2012) concluded on February 26.  This is what I call a “sleeper cycle.”  The reason that it passed my attention was that the VIX hit a 7-year low on March 14.  As a result, the volatility/velocity wasn’t enough to punch below the 50-day moving average as we had in November.  The same thing happened in the summer of 2006.  The result was that virtually every cycles analyst missed the 4-year low on June 12, 2006.

What The Rising Australian Stock Market Could Mean For The AUD/USD / Stock-Markets / Austrailia

By: ForexPros

Decided to look at the Australian stock market today: there's a pretty strong impulsive rally that should move even higher, as we need five waves from early April low. Are you wondering how this will impact the AUDUSD? We suspect that if investors will keep their money in shares; which is expected based on the price action, then there will be no demand for cash (AUD) which may keep the AUD/USD below resistance.

Stock Market Trying For The Old Highs...Not Quite...A Whisker Away / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Did we top out today? We basically made a double top at 1597 with a print of 1596 today. That's a double top if ever I saw one. It would be a natural thought to think that it's all over now for the market. It's possible that it was a double top and down we go from here, or we could just as easily hang in there quite well ahead of that massively important ISM Manufacturing Report headed this was early Wednesday, just thirty minutes into the trading day. It would make sense for the market to be more-quiet-than-not tomorrow as it decides what to do based on that very report. No one knows what it will be, but if it repeats last month performance, we're in trouble as the economy took a bad nose dive with the reading falling from near 55.0 down to the 51's. Another move like that and we're in recession. Will the number be able to reverse back up?

Time to Jump On or Fall Off the Stock Market Bandwagon? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mitchell Clark writes: If corporate earnings are coming in as expected and first-quarter revenues are light, the one thing that is very noticeable is the continuing improvement in balance sheets.

Cash and cash equivalents continue to see increases, and shareholders’ equity is going up. The result of all this continues to be corporations becoming highly reticent to invest in new operations.

How to Protect Your Portfolio from Inflation Without Gold / Stock-Markets / Inflation

By: DailyGainsLetter

Moe Zulfiqar writes: Inflation is when the general price level increases. As a result, purchasing power diminishes; simply stated, every dollar buys less than it did before. Central banks around the world, including the Federal Reserve, continuously try to tame inflation so that it doesn’t get out of control, usually targeting for an inflation rate of anywhere from one to three percent.

Stock Market Rally on Steriods (Except for China) / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The worldwide rally continued last week. Seven of the eight indexes on my watchlist posted big gains. The lone loser was the Shanghai Composite, down three percent (2.97% to be precise). How well did the other indexes perform? Well, the average of the seven winners was a three percent increase (2.99% at two decimal places). Germany’s DAXK was the top finisher, up 4.5%. France’s CAC 40 and Japan’s Nikkei also finished with gains of more than four percent. The S&P 500′s 1.74% gain was only good enough for sixth place. That was quite a week, thanks to hopes of more central bank intervention.

Why Next Week’s Economic Data Is The Most Critical in Months! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Sy_Harding

The market has been engaged in a balancing act for six weeks now between being made optimistic by 1st quarter earnings that are mostly beating Wall Street’s estimates, and concerns about 1st quarter economic reports that are consistently worse than forecasts and indicate the economic recovery is stumbling again.

As a result, while the market gets high marks for its resilience and ability to shrug off the negative economic reports, it has also made almost no further progress over the last six weeks. The Dow closed yesterday (Thursday) just 1.1% higher than six weeks ago on March 14. The broad NYSE Composite closed Thursday just 0.7% higher than on March 14. Even the usually more volatile Nasdaq closed at 3,258 on March 14 and just 0.9% higher on Thursday. Meanwhile, the DJ Transportation Average and Russell 2000 are 3% and 2% below their levels of six weeks ago.

Warning Stocks, Bonds, Gold Major Shift in Asset Class Trends / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

The latest warning sign on US equities came from the recent issue of Barron’s. A recent survey of big money managers showed extreme bullish sentiment. 86% polled were bullish on stocks over the next six to 12 months while only 7% were pessimistic. Meanwhile only 11% were bullish on bonds. The cover of Barron’s emphasized the view of the participants with its title “Dow 16,000” and picture of a bull, leaping away from a bear. In regards to Gold and commodities, 50% were bullish on commodities with 35% bullish on Gold.

How to Play the Disconnect Breakout Dow Industrials and Transportation Stocks Breakout / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mitchell Clark writes: The Dow Jones Transportation Average experienced a powerful breakout this past December. And it’s been a stealth rally ever since, with an expansion in valuations, not earnings.

The stock market’s strongest sector over the past few months has been transportation stocks, which have been much stronger than technology stocks or the S&P 500 companies. Even though it doesn’t seem real, leadership in the Dow Jones Transportation Average is a classic stock market sign.

What Happens When Stock Market Liquidity Disappears? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

ZeroHedge reports on the 4th Qtr. GDP release, “Less than an hour ago we speculated that "it wouldn't be surprising for GDP to come substantially weaker than expected, only to be revised higher (or lower) subsequently." Sure enough, we have gotten at least the first part right for now, with the advance Q1 GDP number printing a very disappointing 2.5%, on expectations of a 3.0% increase, up from 0.4% in Q4, and the biggest miss since Q3 2011. The reason for the big miss: Inventory and Fixed Investment came well below expectations, comprising 1.03% (of which autos represented 0.24%) and 0.53% of the 2.5% annualized increase GDP. Kiss the great CapEx investment story goodbye.”

Which Market Bubble is Larger - Stocks or U.S. Treasury Bonds / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: J_W_Jones

Today we have a plethora of companies reporting earnings and are moving through the 1st Quarter earnings season at a rapid pace. Thus far, earnings have been far from exciting and have made the previous 2013 forward earnings estimates laughable.

The only way we get to the proposed valuations is through multiple expansion which is simply going to require the Federal Reserve to continue to pump $85 billion into Treasury’s and MBS securities each month. I am confident they will comply.

Stock Market to Follow Gold's Example? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Graham_Summers

The markets rallied hard yesterday, thanks to promises of more from Europe. However, the global economy is once again contracting with the bad data coming out of both China and Germany: two of the biggest exporters in the world.

With that in mind, the S&P 500 looks as though its initial jump to the upside from its rising wedge pattern could have been a false breakout: a move was not sustained. These developments are usually followed by VIOLENT swings in the opposite direction.

Bubblemania And The Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Andrew_McKillop

FINANCIAL EUPHORIA
Stock markets are at all-time record highs, yet the real economy is anemic as is clearly shown by constantly "unexpected" or "disappointing" GDP growth figures in almost all countries. As we know, one major fetish cant-lose asset bubble, after another, will suddenly weaken and collapse but the equity markets confortingly roar on and up, unperturbed. Looking at the cant-lose asset bubbles since year 2000, we have had the Internet dot com bubble, real estate in a string of countries and arguably a major cause of the 2008 crash, the uranium bubble of 2005-2007, oil prices in 2004-2008, the green energy and cleantech bubble of 2007-2012, gold price growth for nearly 11 years, the ongoing Bitcoin craze, and other cant-lose assets whose prices "could only grow". Until they wilted or even collapsed.

Stock Market Crash Alert / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: If you're contrarian, then Barron's latest "Big Money" poll and its magazine cover just gave you reasons to be on the lookout for a stock market crash.

The semiannual poll of professional investors found that 74% of money managers are bullish or very bullish about the prospects for U.S. stocks - an all-time high for Big Money, going back more than 20 years.
