Plunging Commodity Prices Are Ominous For Stock Market! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConsumers understandably like to see prices for commodities decline, the more the merrier, particularly gasoline and energy costs.

Many analysts also take commodity price declines as a positive for the economy, on the theory that consumers will have more spending money in their pockets, and manufacturers will have lower costs, so hopefully greater earnings.

Europe: Big Problems Remain For Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn December 2011, the European Central Bank (ECB) attempted to paper over the debt crisis. As noted by the Wall Street Journal on April 18, “Europe’s bold program to defuse its financial crisis by injecting cash into the banking system is running out of steam”.

Since the credit markets in Spain and Italy have shown renewed signs of strain, the timing for elections in France and Greece was less than ideal for policymakers. On Friday morning, there were rumblings from Europe giving some basis for optimism to the post-election situation in Greece.

Stock Market 'Sell in May, and Go Away,' Strikes Again / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMark Twain, one of America's most famous literary icons, and known for his folksy humor, used to say, "History doesn't repeat itself, but it sure does rhyme."

On Wall Street, it's been the "least loved Bull market" in history. Since the start of 2008, there's been a massive exodus of more than $400-billion from mutual funds that invest in US companies, after the biggest and scariest plunge this generation of investors has ever seen. Yet at the same time, the current Bull market, that's grown up in the shadow of the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, is the seventh best percentage gainer in market history. It's also the first Bull market to double in value in less than three years. Despite its impressive résumé, this Bull market gets little respect from retail investors. It's considered to be a bubble that's artificially inflated by the Federal Reserve's cheap money policies. Spooked investors prefer to be clear of the maniacal stock market, before the grizzly Bear arrives.

Stock Market Crash Like in 1987 If Stocks Rally Without QE3 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarc Faber, publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom report, spoke with Bloomberg TV's Betty Liu and said that, "I think the market will have difficulties to move up strongly unless we have a massive QE3 and if it moves and makes the high above 1422, the second half of the year could witness a crash, like in 1987."

Faber went on to say that, "I do not have a high opinion of the U.S. government, but the bureaucrats in Brussels make the government in the U.S. look like an organization consisting of geniuses."

Stocks Bear Market Focus Point: Bull Trap confirmed – Following the leaders / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Garry_Abeshouse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBull Traps at major market peaks are defined by failed upside breakouts. These short lived breakouts usually coincide with unrealistic and often delusional and ill-informed expectations of the future – hence the name. It is no accident that these emotional times also coincide with peak optimism and volume, not necessarily for the markets as a whole, but certainly for the market leaders. In this case it’s Apple.

And if this is really THE BULL TRAP pertaining to the peak of the current three year market top in equities and commodity prices, then price falls morphing into a full scale breakdown and a continuation of the bear market that more or less started in 2000, may become the new reality.

Q.E.3 IS COMING! Stock Market MAP Analysis Part 4 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Marc_Horn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Parts 1 thru 3 we established that the principles of MAP Waves is nothing new and I claim no credit for it. It is actually the first step and foundation of all EW theory which rarely is referred to, and even more rarely used by many of the experts around us.

So let us revisit  the basic basic EW practical lesson 1 - what lines to draw and what information we can derive from them to establish with probable potential pivots target areas which meet EW wave validation criteria.

VIX Ready to Rocket, Stock Market Ready to Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere’s another piece of evidence that the VIX may be going considerably higher. It nudged against an inverted Head & Shoulders neckline that targets 28.46 as a minimum advance and is pulling back for the breakout. Should this neckline be broken, as I believe it will, this becomes an argument for a much steeper decline in SPY/SPX in a third wave. The bounce that I had modeled for SPY is getting modified below..

Stock Market Hangs In, But By A Thread / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Chris_Ciovacco

As summed up by Reuters below, the situation in Greece remains fragile:

Radical Leftist Alexis Tsipras began efforts to form a Greek government on Tuesday by renouncing the terms of an international bailout and threatening to nationalize banks in a statement likely to reduce his chances of success. His uncompromising stance may lower already slim chances of forming a coalition by scaring off the former ruling parties New Democracy and socialist PASOK, while further unsettling jittery investors.

Best Stock Market Performer This Year May Surprise Investors / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the stock market's gate opened at the beginning of 2012, emerging countries were off to a fast start. Stocks in Brazil, Colombia and India galloped to the lead, increasing more than 10 percent within the first few weeks of the year.

By the time the end of April came around, Colombia had sprinted to the lead, followed closely by Thailand and the Philippines. All increased more than 20 percent in the first four months of 2012.

Still Working The Stock Market Base... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

Creating, and setting up, a longer-term base to trade in takes time. When you're in the agnostic phase of a bull market, and a 5-8% correction is needed, which allows for a large handling base to set up, it takes far more time than one would hope to be true. After all, isn't it easier to just crash down, and then just blast back up? That is naturally what all the bulls would like to see happen. Unfortunately, when you've been grossly overbought for months, the process is very low and very emotionally taxing. The market won't just blast back up, and it won't just blast down, either. A nice slow grind to the bottom over several months, two months and counting still, that feels like forever in the minds of all traders. Since we're still in a bull market, it feels like things should go faster, but that's part of the problem.

How High Frequency Trading are Ripping Off Investors / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Sam_Chee_Kong

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the past few years there have been an explosion in High Frequency Trading in Financial Markets. HFT have been around for quite some time since the early days from Deutsche Bourse. Ever since then HFT has spread its wing into the futures , options and foreign exchange markets and it encouraged more brokers to engage in algorithmic and black box trading. 

HFT Activity is Gathering Pace

It is now estimated that daily trading volume in the US market consists of more than 70% HFTs, in Europe it has more than 60% penetration and here in Asia it is more than 50% with strong growth in Singapore, Taiwan, Hong Kong , Japan , India and China is set to triple its HFT trading by 2013.

U.S. Dollar and Manipulation Control the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / US Dollar

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the weekend I had an interesting conversation with a local trader. We typically meet a few times a year to share our market outlooks, new trading tools and techniques, and usually finish our session off in a debate about the US market manipulation and how to trade around it.

Talking about market manipulation always opens up a can of worms and sparks some interesting theories… And while everyone has their own views and opinion on this subject I thought I would briefly share the main points I pulled from our conversation.

The Stock Market Correction is Not Over / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Andre_Gratian

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over) there will be another steep and prolonged decline into late 2014. It is probable, however, that the steep correction of 2007-2009 will have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 120-yr cycle.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The intermediate uptrend is still intact and so is the extended short-term correction.

Crazy Stock Market Moves Give Bears a Glimmer of Hope / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: WavePatternTraders

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome crazy moves seen in the risk markets this past week, and potentially some important clues, but I suspect that not many traders are actually watching those clues, although they will do soon if those clues continue.

So what are these clues?

2 forex pairs I follow and have followed for a long time, especially over the past 3 years have been AUDUSD and NZDUSD, they imo are very important clues to where other risk markets will go.

Stock Market Forecast for Coming Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Manas_Banerji

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSituation does not change much from last week; in fact it becomes more complicated after US jobs report. It could be better if markets would get an assurance from Mr. Draghi, as it got from Bernanke in past week. Spain’s bond auction was good but declined in German bund yields are indicating the overall situation of riskier assets. Germany is now holding an important position but this type of bad PMI report may create lot of problems not only for them but also for whole world.

Paralyzed Fed, Economic Recovery Reality, The Emperor is Naked / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: The_Gold_Report

 

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA "paralyzed" Federal Reserve Bank, in its "final days," held hostage by Wall Street "robots" trading in markets that are "artificially medicated" are just a few of the bleak observations shared by David Stockman, former Republican U.S. Congressman and director of the Office of Management and Budget. He is also a founding partner of Heartland Industrial Partners and the author of The Triumph of Politics: Why Reagan's Revolution Failed and the soon-to-be released The Great Deformation: How Crony Capitalism Corrupts Free Markets and Democracy. The Gold Report caught up with Stockman for this exclusive interview at the recent Recovery Reality Check conference.
