Sentiment Measure Shows No Fear of Major U.S. Stock Decline / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market's recent rally has seemed to ignore Europe's debt crisis and the weak U.S. economy, and in turn commentators have dusted off an old Wall Street phrase: wall of worry.

The "Fear" Trade, Gold the Only True Safehaven / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStocks and interest rates are back to late spring – pre latest European fear levels - and the Jefferies/Thomson Reuters CRB index is at a three-month high.

Risk assets are obviously back in favor with investors - possible action by the European Central Bank (ECB) and the US Federal Reserve (Fed) could offer an explanation why:

Cash Is King? Swiss Bankers' New Safe Haven: Safe Deposit Boxes Full Of Banknotes / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSwiss banks have been doing an extremely brisk yet totally discreet trade with their "New Safe Haven" solution ever since the Eurozone crisis went into full swing and new bilateral tax-treaties were inked with major countries to prevent secret bank accounts in Switzerland being used for evading taxes.  Those two drivers together may have inadvertently contributed to a powerful "New Safe Haven" solution.

Disconnected Stock Markets Confound Investors / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: John_Browne

The current environment for investors is perhaps one of the most confusing that many have ever encountered. Unpredictable markets now appear to take no clue whatsoever from underlying economic data, and maxims long cherished by traditional money managers are being abandoned in favor of seemingly illogical choices. We are in a world in which apparently intelligent investors are willing to pay a premium for 10 year Treasury bonds that are almost certain to lose real value if held to maturity. While such an environment is enough to encourage many to cash out completely, we believe that investors should remain focused on the fundamentals, even if fewer others have the conviction to do so.

Stock Market Kiss of Death, Get Out the Popcorn, The Show is About to Begin / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFriends, you are looking at the game changer for the world markets.  There are several reasons why.

The first is that this tolls the death knell for the bond carry trade that has sustained the banks for so long.  In essence, they could borrow from the Fed at .25% and invest in notes and bonds at 1.8% (notes) to 2.8% (bonds) and profit from the “carry” or spread.  Naturally, as notes yielded less and less, banks switched to bonds for the higher yield.

The Hitch-Hiker's Guide to Markets, Inflation and Deflation Over the Next 8 Years / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: David_Petch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI could not go without writing a serious parody of the above original comedy series, so be prepared to enter this guide, which will hopefully offer a fraction of information in “the standard repository for all knowledge and wisdom”.

This planet has a problem – and has had this problem repeated throughout history – a problem that made most people living through it unhappy for pretty much all of the time...and this involved periods of inflation and deflation.

Eurozone Crisis Escalates, Smuggled Cash, Gold & Silver Seizures Soar at Italy's Borders,Diamonds Are Forever? / Stock-Markets / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePanicked savers are smuggling cash from Italy resulting in 41 million euros being seized in random spot checks in the first seven months of 2012, which is almost 80 per cent up year-on-year.  For each seizure by the border-control authorities and Guardia di Finanza -- Italian financial law enforcement -- it is likely that at least ten more cases slip under the radar of overworked and, in some cases, sympathetic police and border guards.  Italian police are now deploying cash sniffing Labrador dogs that are trained to sniff out bank notes to counter the rising flight-of-capital from Eurozone's third largest economy.  A number of seizures have been made at Leonardo da Vinci di Fiumicino airport in Rome and Malpensa airport in Milan where smugglers frequently attempt to get to the banking safe haven of Switzerland, which lies outside the clutches of the European Union and the Italian state.

Stock Market ā€œEā€ Wave to Rally Market to Bull Cycle Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: David_Banister

In recent updates I have been projecting a series of ABCDE waves to take the Bull market to post March 2009 highs in the 1425-1445 ranges.  The recent pullback was expected as what I was calling a “D wave” pullback, with an E wave to come.  These final 5th waves or E waves can be extension waves or relatively benign, hence causing difficulty in forecasting the upper ranges.

Jackson Hole: Make Or Break For The Markets 2012 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Bob_Kirtley

Investors, speculators, traders and fund managers alike will be glued to their flat screens at the end of August, hanging onto every word that the Chairman Ben Bernanke utters. They will be looking for some positive action on behalf of the Fed in terms monetary stimulus or Quantitative Easing Part Three. Every angle, inference, real or perceived meaning, will be analyzed to the fullest extent with the view to positioning ones portfolio accordingly.

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVIX declined within .01 of the March 16 low on an intraday basis. Tomorrow is the next Pivot Date for the VIX and it is probable that the VIX may gap up at the open. The VIX/SPX futures are in agreement. This has been quite a ride and changes the landscape for the decline in equities that has already begun.

Stock Market Holding Well..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

The market is doing its Houdini act as it hides from the fundamental story out there globally. It seems to have tricks up its sleeves as it works its way around the mess that's out there no matter where you look save for a few spots on the map. Major headaches abound, yet the market, even if it tries to sell off, has a tough time doing so. It tried to today, but the bears couldn't really muster enough energy once they had the S&P 500 just below 1400. The bulls came in and kept the selling at a minimum. Some red arrows on the S&P 500 and Dow, but they were very small losses, while the Nasdaq 100 flashed green by a point.

Stock Market Running On Empty! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. –Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC); Roman Statesman

It becomes harder and harder to find the truth and that certainly holds true with respect to government statistics. The investment world was pleased with the recent jobs report claiming 163,000 posts were created in July. It was a small step, but at least it was in the right direction. Or was it? When I tell you that the numbers are fudged I realize that doesn’t carry a lot of weight, but here’s what the Washington Post had to say about how the Bureau of Labor Statistics processes data:

Credit Crunch Fifth Anniversary / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

We are coming up to the fifth anniversary of the financial crisis, at least for the UK’s banking system, because it was five years ago that anxious depositors were queuing up to withdraw their money from Northern Rock, leading to its inevitable rescue by the tax-payer.

Stock Market Top Forming? / 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 - SPX is in a limited intermediate uptrend which is estimated to end in the first week of August.

Gold, Silver, Stocks and U.S. Dollar Markets Outlook / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Chad_Bennis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week saw consolidation in the markets as they moved within the confines of tight ranges seeking direction. The direction has not yet been confirmed, but there are some insights we may be able to see in the technical picture that will help us understand what the markets want to do. There was a sell signal in the SP500, gold and silver that was triggered on Thursday and it was the first since August 3rd, but by the time friday morning had rolled along the market reconfirmed its bullish bias by closing higher. This behavior confirms that these markets are currently in confirmed up trends and may be setting up for higher prices. Let’s take a look at the market’s behavior.
