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 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.

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."

U.S. Fed QE UNTAPER and Ponzi Finance / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Ty_Andros

Eyes wide shut!
The funding of moral and fiscal insolvency continues to BARRELL along.  The whole developed world is INSOLVENT and the public just muddles along as the bagman for the behavior of the very people they have placed their trust and futures in.  The vast majority of the world has bought hook line and sinker the thought that they can SOMETHING for NOTHING and are attempting to realize this dream.
They believe they can live a good life without working for it.  That they are entitled to the fruits of others labor, known throughout history as slavery, but now the word for it is FAIRNESS.  That wealth and prosperity can be printed out of thin air with no consequences to the world at large.

A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to New Stock Market Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The financial crisis of 2008 was the biggest panic America had witnessed since the Great Depression. Dubbed the “Great Recession,” its after-effects linger. In fact, this is the worst post-bust recovery on record.
Today, for investors, especially stock market investors, there are two camps: those who believe we are in recovery, and those (like me) who believe something is wrong with this recovery…it doesn’t feel or smell right.

Stock Market Sideways Consolidation Camouflages Danger Ahead / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Today’s action was basically a sideways consolidation, buying time but little else as overhead resistance and low volume grind down the attempts at a rally. Sideways consolidations are generally signs of a continuation of the existing trend.

Several commentators have wondered why the current bottom has held so long. Others have pointed out the obvious Head & Shoulders formation with a minimum target of 1653.90. No one has recognized the Broadening Wedge which has a much more significant meaning.

 “This looks to me like 2007 all over again, but even worse. All the previous imbalances are still there. Total public and private debt levels are 30% higher as a share of GDP in the advanced economies than they were then, and we have added a whole new problem with bubbles in emerging markets.”William White, former BIS chief economist, 09/20/2013

California Hikes Wages 25%, Saves US Economy! / Stock-Markets / Wages

By: PhilStockWorld

California is raising the Minimum Wage to $10 an hour!

Unfortunately, not until 2016 but this is exactly what we need to really move the economy forward so first break in the dam, thank goodness.  Still, it's a 25% increase over 2 years, not bad and not a bad reason to buy gold and silver (yesterday's play on SLW is a good start) as California, no matter how wacky you think they are, usually leads the nation in necessary reforms and this is one that's been a long time coming.

New Dow Components Enter Index on a Whimper / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Welcome GS ($165), V ($196) and NKE ($69) - Goodbye to AA ($8), BAC ($14) and HPQ ($21).

The changing of the Dow replaced $43 worth of stocks with $430 worth of stocks and, in the price-weighted index, this is a major shift of balance. Rather than over-analyze it, let's just say that it shifts the Dow to a far more consumer-spending orientation and GS pumps up the sensitivity to the banking sector. What we're taking away from, once again is the "Industrials" which, much like America, are barely a part of the Dow Jones Industrial Average anymore.
