Stock Market Seesaw...Chop...Handle...Lateral...All The Same...Nauseating... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

We can come up with many different ways to explain 2014. All the words in the title apply, and all those words equate to massive frustration for the average trader out there who hasn't been washed out of the game from the decline in froth stocks. Many have gone away, but those still surviving can't make sense of anything and are playing on emotion, which is never a good thing for the wallet. The market had the usual two days today wrapped in a single session with the S&P 500 near a break down and then near a break out.

Stock Market Small Daily Gain, Small Weekly Loss / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The big market news today was the Dow’s achievement of record closing high. My preferred market gauge, the S&P 500, closed with a modest 0.15% gain but was down 0.14% for the week. The index tracked its futures and opened lower, hitting its -0.46% intraday low in the opening minutes. It struggled into weak positive territory during the lunch hour, oscillated around yesterday’s close to finish with at its intraday high.

Watch for Stock Market Sell Signals / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX reversed back down beneath Short-term resistance at 1876.23. The balance of all the supports are just beneath this morning’s low at 1867.02. The Ending Diagonal Trendline is at 1865.00. Either the supports or the trendline may be used as the “sell signal.” Take your pick.

Major Stock Market Selloff Looms / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

A major selloff is brewing in the lofty US stock markets, which have been grinding sideways for a couple months now.  Momentum has faded despite selective positive earnings-season news and Janet Yellen’s jawboning.  Stocks remain very overvalued, way too expensive for prudent investors to buy.  And it’s been far too long since their last necessary and healthy correction to rebalance sentiment, so one is seriously overdue.

Last year’s extraordinary stock-market levitation has run out of steam.  In the 15.7 months leading into early March 2014, the flagship S&P 500 stock index blasted 38.8% higher!  Capital indiscriminately flooded into stocks regardless of fundamentals or valuations because the Federal Reserve was doing its darnedest to convince traders that it was effectively backstopping the stock markets.  This bred extreme complacency.

The Worst Risk/Reward Trade on Wall Street / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: EconMatters

The Rigging

So a bunch of folks in Hedge Fund Land have this idea that they can force a bit of a squeeze in the bond markets, and all the sudden the boring old bond market has been on the media roadshow by firms trying to talk their book, and get others to follow suit, and go long the bond market.

Two Worlds Collide: Financial and Political Manipulation Accepted / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Doug_Wakefield

"Federal Reserve policy is at a crossroads facing unpleasant paths in all directions. Monetary policy around the world has reached the point where the contradictions embedded in years of market manipulation have left no choices that do not involve either contraction or catastrophic risk. Further monetary easing may precipitate a loss of confidence in money; policy tightening will restate the collapse in asset values that began in 2007. Only structural change in the U.S. economy, something outside the Fed's purview, can break this stalemate."

Stock Market Critical Thinking / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: DailyWealth

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: Yesterday, I shared the "secret" to my success...

As I explained, this secret is not hard to understand or to put into action. And it works in both the markets and in life.

In short, the idea is to boil things down to the "One Critical Thing" – and invest accordingly.

Stock Market Indices Overbought, Ready to Decline / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

It seems like déjà vu all over again in the SPX. Today is a Trading Cycle Pivot day, so we should see a reversal very soon. The numerical pivot is 210.7 and today is day 211, so I don’t expect to see the retracement last.

Stock Market At Important Resistance - Will Uptrend Continue? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion speculative long positions are still favored (with stop-loss at 1,850, S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is bullish, and our short-term outlook remains neutral:

Intraday (next 24 hours) outlook: bullish
Short-term (next 1-2 weeks) outlook: neutral
Medium-term (next 1-3 months) outlook: neutral
Long-term outlook (next year): bullish

Stock Market Wednesday Bounce / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The US market faced a mix of news today: 1) The Nikkei plunged 2.93%, marking its first YoY decline since late October 2012, 2) Yellen testified before the Joint Economic Committee, and 3) Putin signals readiness to ease on Ukraine. The S&P 500, prompted by positive futures, opened higher but quickly sold off to its -0.42% intraday low. Thereafter Yellen’s testimony and some toning down of “Putinism” led the index higher in a couple of waves. It ended the day with a 0.56% gain, just fractionally off its 0.59% intraday high in the closing minutes.

Stock Market Bifurcation....Boredom....Froth Slaughtered....Sentiment Worsening Again... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

When will the bifurcation end is the big question. The bigger question beyond that is when will the bifurcation cause a massive down move because bifurcation shows an unhealthy environment that usually leads to an entire market breakdown. That said, you see it and adapt. Maybe the bear market, which is occurring currently in froth stocks, will be all there is in terms of the correction. I'm waiting for the S&P 500 to lose its 50-day exponential moving average, but it hasn't yet and until it does the forecast remains dreary for froth and the Nasdaq, but partly sunny still for the S&P 500 and Dow.

Banksters Market Rigging Manipulation Is 'Pedal To The Metal' / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Andrew_McKillop

Financial Companies Will Do Almost Anything
Preet Bharara, the US Attorney for the financial Southern District of New York City recently said: “Companies, especially financial institutions, will do almost anything to avoid tough enforcement action and....have a natural and powerful incentive to make prosecutors believe that death or dire consequences await”.

The US FERC-Federal Energy Regulatory Commission formally charged JPMorgan with massive criminal manipulation of US energy markets, especially in California and the Midwest, specifically to obtain tens of millions of dollars in over-payments from power grid operators in the period between September 2010 and June 2011.

Stocks, Housing and Bond Market Castles in the Air / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Fred_Sheehan

The word "bubble" is suffering from overuse. Still, with money for nothing inflating markets around the world, we are seeing how prices inflate to enormous proportions where the prospect of pushing those prices even higher draws a crowd. When such artificial stimulants to bond, mortgage and tea-cup enthusiasm reaches a peak, the switch from green to red is often quick.

A reminder comes by way of "Run, Run, Run, Was the Financial Crisis Panic over Institution Runs Justified?" by Vern McKinley. Published on April 10, 2014, by the Cato Institute, McKinley writes: "Countrywide's [a premier sub-prime lender when the going was good - FJS] second-quarter 2007 financial results indicated no significant weaknesses and the major rating agencies assigned it strong ratings with a stable outlook. [Although, a MarketWatch headline on July 24, 2007: "U.S. Stocks Close Sharply Off on Credit Woes, Dow Slides 226 points; Countrywide Says Risks Extend Beyond Subprime." This is a reminder that "the market" quickly forgets what it does not want to know, as we see on May 1, 2014. - FJS]

Stock Market Experiences A Bit of May Selling / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: Tuesday was a light day for economic news. The trade balance for March was down slightly more than expected, but not enough to contribute significantly to the Second Estimate of Q1 GDP. The S&P 500 opened fractionally lower and sold off to about the 1876 level, which provided support until after the lunch hour. It then sold off to a lower level and accelerated its losses in the final 20 minutes. The index closed at it -0.90% intraday low.

The popular press (e.g., Bloomberg and CNBC), always eager to explain the market, attributed today’s bad mood to AIG’s weak earnings, its stock losing 4.14%, and Twitter, its stock plunging 17.81% after a lockup expiration.

Stock Market Supports Broken / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

After several attempts, SPX broke through its Short-term support at 1876.07 and is headed for its combined Intermediate-term and 50-day Moving Average at 1864.91. It has passed through that area so many times it is a wonder whether it may even stop.
