Financial Markets Head Firmly In The Sand! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe now see signs of deflation everywhere except of course in the news where they still insist in talking about the possibility of inflation. On Friday we saw that a drop in gasoline prices dragged producer prices down in April by the most in six months, according to data released by the government on Friday. The Labor Department said producer prices fell a seasonally adjusted 0.2% in April to mark the biggest decline since October. The unadjusted 12-month rise of 1.9% in the rate of wholesale-level inflation was the weakest since October 2009. Energy prices tumbled 1.4% on the month due to a reversal of a recent spike in oil prices as well as continued weakness in natural-gas prices. Prices of intermediate goods, which are partly processed items like flour or lumber, shrank 0.5%, which also was the largest drop since October. Prices of crude materials like raw cotton, grains and crude petroleum tumbled 4.4%. Besides energy, other notable drops came from corn, which dropped 5.6%, and scrap aluminum, which skidded 6.4%.

Stocks Bear Market Focus Point: Bull Trap confirmed – Six weeks is a long time for a Banker / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Garry_Abeshouse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRecent ““errors, sloppiness and bad judgment” by JP Morgan have shown the world that the D-Word genie, after sleeping off its last travail into an “unsuspecting” financial world has escaped again, to wreak havoc on our loving and ever too trusting bankers. Of course this begs the obvious question – if the highly technically advantaged JP Morgan can stuff up their dealings with derivatives so easily, surely this can happen to others as well – which beggars the question of who shall be next? The very nature of greed combined with huge amounts of cheap money, the continuing lack of open and honest disclosure and targeted and effective regulation, means that it is only a matter of time before history repeats itself. And as long as governments lack the will to enforce these measures, you can be sure that bankers will continue to find ways to persevere with their high risk ways.

Stock Market Line In The Sand About To Be Tested / 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.

Stock Value and Dividends at Wall Cycle Lows / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn light of the top of the multi-decade bull market and the recurring bear market massacres since the top, investors are increasingly jaded and skeptical. Stocks need to deliver an acceptable dividend stream to satisfy the growing investor preference for income. Investors want value for their money and that means sustainable dividend income at the right price. Combining the principles of value investing with market cycle tracking allows investors to identify value and the most opportune times to buy it.

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US market gapped down at the open on monday to SPX 1364. Then proceeded to make lower downtrend lows but rebounded to that level, or 2 points higher, every day this week. It was a somewhat volatile week with a range between SPX 1343 and 1374.

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.

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.
