Global Stock Markets Over Extended and Running Out of Steam / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Garry_Abeshouse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst cab off the rank and probably one of the biggest bull markets ever experienced in a western equity market index over a two year period in the history of the stock market, would have to be the Canadian TSX Mining Index, which rose from 177 to 1568, a rise of 786% since November 2008. 

By comparison, the Sydney Metals and Minerals index rose from 370 in 1959 to around 5400 in January 1970 – a rise of 1360% over the last 11 years of Australia’s mining boom.

Dow Stock Market Index Interim Trend Analysis and Forecast Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market spent most of the week trading sideways in a tight range into Fridays break higher to a new bull market closing high of Dow 11871.84. However minor weakness during early to mid week was enough to get many perma-bears with itchy fingers to short and lose more money on the so called bear market rally (approaching 2nd anniversary). Some even went so far as to resurrect the worthless Hindenberg Crash Omen, as they wait for the one time when it actually delivers something other than trading losses, though a coin toss has repeatedly shown itself to be infinitely more profitable than the likes of the hindenberg crash omen.

Value Line Geometric and Arithmetic Averages / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleValue Line maintains two averages of the universe of stocks that it tracks. The Arithmetic average tracks the average percentage change of all stocks in its index. Naturally, small and midcap stocks will usually move in greater percentages than large cap stocks during a bull and bear markets. It takes a lot more money to move large caps than small/mid caps. The chart below illustrates this index since its inception in 1988.

My Central Banker Can Beat Up Your Central Banker! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Another week - another gain for the Dow. The S&P was slightly positive but what’s up with the Nasdaq? It was actually down a few percentage points. While the other indices were rising because the economy was getting better, the Nasdaq was falling because the economy was not getting better. Go figure! Was Bernanke only buying the senior indices this week? Isn’t that all that matters? I think the chart below explains things quite clearly.

Stock Market Froth Breaks Lower / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

If you're holding the classic froth high P/E stock you had one of the worst weeks of your trading lives. Slaughter's everywhere. If you're holding lower P/E stocks then you had a nothing from nothing week even though the averages sold off decently. Those high beta monsters destroyed the masses as usual. In the end they always end badly for most folks. The masses are buying the most right at the top as they can no longer handle not being in those frothy beasts. They figure they'll make a killing on the earnings report. They bought F5 Networks, Inc. (FFIV) and had their careers halted. You deal with -30 and see how it feels.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFood Inflation Comes To America: General Mills, Kraft And Kellogg Hike Prices On Selected Food Products

(ZeroHedge) After denying for months that surging food prices will eventually come to the consumer, hoping that instead food companies could absorb the margin drop, sell-side research is finally capitulating to the reality of what is really happening in the retail store. In a note discussing General Mills, Goldman Sachs says the company raised prices on snack bars some 7% last week. Goldman further clarifies that "this reportedly followed a comparable increase taken by K on its snack bars in mid-December. In addition, KFT has reportedly announced a 6% increase on select Planters branded nut products. We expect more price increases to be announced by the food companies in the coming weeks.

Investors Will Have To Learn To Trade! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Sy_Harding

The statistics are eye-opening. The average holding period for stocks is now only three or four months. Presumably that includes those held by mutual funds and etf’s.

Is it a new impatience or nervousness on the part of investors and managers? Or is the average holding period being distorted by ‘flash-trading’ firms?

Stock Market SPX Correction Looms / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US stock markets have enjoyed an awesome run since late August, with the flagship S&P 500 stock index (SPX) up 23.7%.  Traders have earned huge profits in sectors that leverage general-stock-market gains, including commodities stocks.  But as usual after any long and uninterrupted rally, complacency reigns supreme today.  Such sentiment is a prime breeding ground for spawning corrections.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The U.S. Dollar is being devalued by the Federal Reserve…

QE2 is nothing more than devaluation of the dollar for the benefit of only Wall Street Money Center Banks. This is a fraud on the American people who will get nothing from QE2, not jobs, no reduction of their debts, no increase in the values of their homes, no reduction of taxes, no cash, nothing.” Robert McHugh, McHugh’s Weekend Market Newsletter, 1/14/11

Another Consequence of Zero Interest Rates / Stock-Markets / US Interest Rates

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past two years, I have visited the topic of the consequences of our new zero rate world on several occasions. Despite media ramblings about ‘free’ money stimulating the economy and igniting another 2005-esque period of time, there have been several very negative consequences. Obviously, pathetic rates of return on what are traditionally referred to, as ‘risk-free’ assets are one well-understood development. There are others. This week we’ll take a look at the specter of zero-rates from a risk management perspective and demonstrate exactly how much our world has changed. Perhaps, ironically, the news is not all bad; there is a bit of a silver lining in here!

Marc Faber Says Own Stocks, Gold & Silver, Farm Land and Short Government Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Justin_John

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 has started on an unexpected note. Emerging markets have come down and developed markets, like Europe and the US, have scaled up.

It was not entirely unexpected to me because since March 2009, emerging markets have significantly outperformed developed ones and through easy monetary policies in the US, we created bubbles in the emerging economies, particularly in terms of inflation. So, the emerging economies, having this excessive liquidity and high inflation, have to tighten here, or let inflation go and have problems later on. So some money is flowing out of emerging economies.
