Forecast Psychology & Rebuttal to Gary North / Stock-Markets / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Jim_Willie_CB

A rebuttal is warranted. The entire analytic discussion, defense of viewpoints, exposure of corrupted markets, and intriguing human psychology regarding forecasts is covered. It might be enlightening to many folks. It might be entertaining to some. It might be tawdry to a few. Gary North sounds more like a mainstream financial apologist than a sound money advocate. His days at the Lew Rockwell Institute are over. He seems a confused man with a limited comprehension of either the financial system or market developments, who has offered a shallow dispute of the Jackass recent perspective on the USTreasury Bond market. Given his extremely unimpressive analytic ability and dim vision, with a certain blindness extended from a certain perceptual inversion, he will be referred to henceforth as Mr South. Nothing personal, just hard to respect incredibly shallow attacks with no solicitation, surely without recognition of my past correct forecast trail. South is surely a good man, just not a good analyst. His recent essay featuring the Flash Trading and other USTreasury Bond factors was an unsolicited disgraceful assault with hardly a single point of valid substance. It was an extremely unimpressive display.

Stock Physics: How Newton’s Third Law of Motion Applies to the Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Don_Miller

From a ball bouncing up off the floor to an earthquake triggering a tsunami, Newton's third law of motion tells us a lot about how the world works. Most of us can recite the abridged version of the law by heart: Every action has an equal and opposite reaction.

Washington Awful... Stock Market Sending Bigger Message?... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

I'm personally wondering if the market is sending a bigger message than just Washington these days. Why? Because the weekly S&P 500 chart has a triple-negative divergence, and the deeper message may be that it's time for a prolonged nasty period here. My thinking is this. If you study a stock like American Express Company (AXP) you get some insight. This stock found itself with a hollow candle three days back right on the 50-day exponential moving average. It followed the way it should with an up day yesterday. MACD was turning up, which is appropriate. Today, no follow through. In fact, a hard nasty fall with a full candle below the 50's. Not bull-market behavior. It doesn't mean a bear market either.

Stock Market Easy Money Addiction Exit Plan / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Doug_Wakefield

On September 13, 2012, the Federal Reserve announced its latest "QE", or "Quick and Easy" money plan for Wall Street banks. If we look at the price of US stocks since that time, we can see why investors were so optimistic about the PAST 5 years of "Quick and Easy" money that they poured their own money into equity mutual funds at record levels right before the latest Sept 18th announcement from "the addiction dealers".

U.S. Government Shutdown Great for Stocks Bull Market, Bears Will be Crucified Again / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The U.S. Government has shutdown, some 700,000 workers told to stay at home and speculation rife that the U.S. is 2 weeks away from debt interest payment default, so it is not surprising that Doom and Gloom prevails as supposedly a new bear market has once more begun, right at the maximum point for seasonal weakness for the stock market. The perma bears and many other inexperienced but highly vocal market commentators can be found jumping up and down like demented rabbits proclaiming the likes of the "Top is In", just google the stock market and you will see an near infinite number of pages of commentary proclaiming that the bull market has ended, despite the fact that the same commentators never rode it on the way up!

The Shame of U.S. Government Shutdown / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Bloomberg

Hedge Fund Manager, David Einhorn sat down with Bloomberg Television's Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle today and discussed the government shutdown, Green Mountain Coffee and Verizon/Vodafone deal.

Einhorn said it is unimaginable for U.S. to default, "Frankly not working this out so the government shuts down is bad enough...It does not seem that they tried to sit down to talk through their differences. That is the tone in Washington. It's a real shame."

A Good Day for a Major stock Market Down Turn? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Yesterday I had suggested a “hope rally” that would figure in a bounce back to mid-Cycle resistance at 1690.00, but it appears to have taken place in the overnight futures.

The Pre-Market is only nominally higher after going to 1691.00 (cash) overnight, so the bounce may have already come and gone.

Too Much Stock Market Complacency / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Brian_Bloom

The breakaway gap followed by the runaway gap in the first chart of the Volatility (fear) Index implies that the 17.5 level on the second chart will be broken to the upside. If that does happen, we will very likely see fireworks. The financial markets seem to be taking the government shutdown with far too much complacency. The lines between Republicans (responsible management of government finances) and Democrats (altruistic aspirations paid for with other people’s money) have been drawn so deep in the sand that one might think of them as having been cast in concrete. Compromise seems a distant possibility.

The Real "Pin" That Could Pop the Stock Market Bubble / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Nothing goes up forever. Not the Federal Reserve's balance sheet, not global debt levels, and not stock markets... even when governments don't shut down.

Precisely because the Fed's balance sheet ballooned from $869 billion in August 2007 to over $3.6 trillion (and counting) today, and in spite of ballooning U.S. and global debt levels, U.S. equity benchmarks have been inflated to precarious heights.

Stock Market Volatility Gains as Congress Showboats / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Daniel Sckolnik writes: “It’s more fun to talk with someone who doesn’t use long difficult words but rather short easy words like What about lunch?” — Winnie the Pooh

Washington is back doing what it seems to be best at these days, which is ramping up the national angst while it plays a Congressional game of “chicken.”

Stock Market Hope Trade Lingers / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Afternoon!

The “hope trade” lingers for yet awhile. Any rumor of a settlement could boost the SPX back up to the H&S neckline. If so, I will re-label this spike as Wave [c] of 2. It may even go back to 1700.00 briefly. Everything is tentative, yet, so I may post another look at the SPX later. What I do know is that tomorrow is a double pivot day, so it makes te most sense that we get a spike from this low before the market turns down hard.

Republican Baby Budget Battle Breaks the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Told you so!

As we expected, the Futures are off about 1% this morning and down about 3.5% on the Dow, S&P and NYSE since Thursday, the 19th, when we told you to ignore the Fed rally and the painted charts and focus on the FUNDAMENTAL ISSUES that were going to drive the market lower. I also had some opinion about what to do with the new oil contract, saying right in the morning post (where even the free readers could see it):

October Stock Market Correction and the Secret Ruler of The Federal Reserve / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Clif_Droke

In recent commentaries we've looked at the possible scenario for an October stock market correction. This scenario is based on Kress cycle "echo" considerations as well as a number of technical and market psychology indicators which suggest a market top may be forming. A number of individual stocks are still bullish, but intermediate-term indicators suggest that distribution has been underway in various sectors and industry groups for some time. Accordingly, traders should remain wary of the possibility for an "October surprise."

I would argue that we numerous bells ringing in the financial markets today.

Carl Icahn wants Apple to leverage up to boost returns to shareholders. Apple has maintained next to no debt for the better part of ten years.

Stock Market Still Looks Bullish – In the Rear-View Mirror / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013
