Financial Contagions Spread Global Investment Dysfunction / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Dan_Amerman

Australia and New Zealand, as well as many other nations around the world, have caught an economic virus of sorts. This contagion is primarily being spread by Japan, the United States and the European Monetary Union, all of whom have undertaken increasingly irresponsible monetary and financial policies whose effects are proving communicable.

People are used to goods being in global competition, where the prize goes to those nations who produce the best goods at the lowest cost. However, there is a loophole in this simple relationship, whereby cost depends on the relative value of a nation's currency, and that can be deliberately altered by a nation.

Professor Forecasts Dow to Hit 17,000, Will It Really Happen This Year? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: There are some signs the stock market is developing some froth. Besides a growing disconnect between the record levels of the stock market and the underlying economic and business fundamentals, we are witnessing predictions that remind me of the froth in 2000.

I'm not talking about celebrating the new millennium all over again. I'm talking about celebrating the markets roaring ahead, like they did in 1999.

Dangerous Divergences Between Bonds and Stocks / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Gary_Dorsch

It all seems so surreal. After being mesmerized by the Fed’s hallucinogenic “Quantitative Easing,” (QE) drug, and seduced by the Fed’s Zero Interest Rate Policy (ZIRP), and rescued by the Fed’s clandestine intervention in the stock index futures market, for the past 4-½-years, it’s easy to forget that there was once a time when the Fed’s main policy tool was simply adjusting the federal funds rate. It’s even harder to recall that two decades ago, the Fed’s raison d’être was combating inflation, whereas today, the Fed’s main mission is rigging the stock market, and inflating the fortunes of the wealthiest 10% of Americans.

Follow the Fed to 50% Stock Market Crash Flops / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: John_Mauldin

John Hussman is one of the savviest investing minds I know, and so I never miss his Weekly Market Comment. This week he wrote about an interesting disconnect between what investors believe about "fighting the Fed" (i.e., don't do it) and the reality of S&P 500 returns, and I've made that piece today's Outside the Box.

John leads off with a provocative fact: "… the last two 50% market declines – both the 2001-2002 plunge and the 2008-2009 plunge – occurred in environments of aggressive, persistent Federal Reserve easing." Go figure, right? And to make the situation even more counterintuitive and confusing,

US Stock Market Foreshadows Another Rally – True Story! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Over the past couple week’s investors and traders have been growing increasingly bearish for the US stock market. While I too also feel this rally is getting long in the teeth there is no reason to exit long positions and start shorting.

My followers know I do not pick tops and I do not pick bottoms. This I explained in great detail in my previous report. There are more cons to that tactic and on several different levels (timing, volatility, emotions, lack of experience, addiction) than there are pro’s.

Stock Market Titanic Syndrome / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Ed_Carlson

The media was all abuzz on Friday with news of another sighting of the dreaded Hindenburg Omen. As there was no shortage of stories describing the “omen” I decided to use this space to mention another indicator with a name which is just as scary: the Titanic Syndrome.

On Thursday (one day before the Hindenburg sighting and Friday’s 200 point drop in the Dow!) the Titanic Syndrome appeared. This phenomenon was discovered by Bill Ohama in 1965.  Ohama wrote that the syndrome is typically followed by a 10% drop in the Dow.

Stock Market Quietly Correcting.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Markets find a way when the time is right. And they also find a way when the time is right. Confused? I'll explain. When they want to correct they do so. No amount of good news will take the market higher. Good economic reports will simply be ignored. On the other hand, when the market wants to correct, but not get slaughtered, they'll find a way to hang in there even when the very worst of news hits the street. We got that type of news today in a very big way. The ISM Manufacturing Report came out at 49.00. Gulp! Contraction!

Stock Market SPX, VIX Winding Up For Bearish Punch / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

The SPX moves may appear disappointing at first glance. However, there is a lot of coiled up energy stored in these moves. All of these waves are impulsive and no matter how much they are being fought against, the waves are grinding down the opposition.

The Mirage Called the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: While an economic slowdown is looming over the global economy, no one seems to care, as stock markets continue to reach new record-highs—giving investors false hopes of economic growth. But how long can this mirage actually last?

The economic slowdown in the global economy I’m talking about is a worldwide pullback in growth. Take India as the first example. According to India’s Central Statistics Office, the Indian economy is growing at five percent—its slowest pace in a decade! The director general of the Confederation of Indian Industry was quoted late last week as saying, “With no visible pick-up in any key levers of the economy, the situation remains grim.” (Source: Mallet, V., “India records slowest growth in a decade,” Financial Times, May 31, 2013.)

The Case for Stock Market Being at a Major Turning Point / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

Last Friday I shared some thoughts regarding the potential turn in the US Treasury bond market. As many markets are correlated, it would be worth looking for reversal signs in other markets. And in fact, I believe such signs are in place in the S&P 500.

Stock Market Correction Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

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 severe correction of 2007-2009 may have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - SPX continues to progress according to its structure. An intermediate reversal is probably on the way.

Why Gold and Stock Market Are About to Reverse Course / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Toby_Connor

There’s a reason why commercial traders are regression to the mean traders. In this business it is the one thing that you can absolutely bank on. It's like death and taxes, it never fails. All markets eventually return to the mean. An appropriate corollary to this rule is that the further an asset gets stretched above or below the mean the more violent the regression is, and the further it will move past the mean during the snapback.

Euro-zone, U.S. Compounding Errors! Trillions of Dollars being Printed / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Robert_M_Williams

You're not to be so blind with patriotism that you can't face reality. Wrong is wrong, no matter who does it or says it. - Malcolm X

Over the last couple of months we’ve heard the IMF, ECB and US Federal Reserve all come out and tell us that they have the right policies in place and things are getting better. Unfortunately, the statistics just don’t bare that out even though they’re often biased in favor of the very governments that produce them. On Friday I saw that unemployment has reached a new high in the Eurozone while inflation remains well below the European Central Bank's target, underscoring just how severe a challenge EU leaders face to revive the bloc's sickly economy. Joblessness in the 17-nation currency area rose to 12.2% in April, this according to Eurostat on Friday, marking a new record since the data series began in 1995.

Get Ready to be “CYPRUSED” at a Bank near you / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Christopher_Quigley

The banking situation in Europe continues to deteriorate rapidly. As a measure of the ongoing crisis  the “ Bail In” option used in Cyprus is actually being made European Commission policy. The following is a recent report from the much respected Irish Times:

 

“Proposals under Irish presidency to deal with European bank collapses likely to ‘bail-in’ large depositors.

Deposits of over €100,000 are likely to be hit in the event of future European bank collapses, according to a proposal put forward by the Irish presidency of the European Council ahead of a key meeting of finance ministers next week.

Caution for Stock Market Bulls and Bears / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

The market is undergoing a correction, but it is enough to call it a top? No. More evidence is required before saying that the Fed has thrown in the towel. If it takes more fiat to keep prices inflated, it will be provided. The alternative would be too painful for investors, [not of concern for the Fed], and too embarrassing to admit to the fraud of QE-Infinity to keep the bubble intact.
