Investor Opportunities Credit Crunch / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article “In doing what the Swiss National Bank is doing (Ed. Pegging the Swiss Franc to the Euro), it has effectively ended the Swiss Franc as a currency.” Dennis Gartman, The Gartman Letter

Crises are Magnifying and Intensifying but are also providing Substantial Profit Opportunities, providing one knows what to focus on, and what to avoid – our dual focus here.

Stock Market Bear Selling / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarly August’s sharp stock-market plunge ignited an explosion of bearish theories.  And with the headline stock indexes still grinding along near lows over the month since, fears of a new bear market continue to proliferate today.  But interestingly, the fast selling velocity that spooked traders is not characteristic of young bear markets.  Instead it is a bull-market-correction phenomenon.

Fed Can’t Twist Stock Market Sell Signals Away / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Wall Street Journal’s cover story on September 8 boldly proclaimed “Fed Prepares to Act”. The article hinted that ‘Operation Twist’ may be in the works (more on that below). Can you imagine the market’s reaction to a headline like that in the late 1990s when the Fed was looked at as some kind of miracle worker? The S&P 500 futures would have popped in the morning and inflation-protection assets would have had a strong open. On the morning of said Wall Street Journal article, the markets barely took notice of possible Fed action. This is clear evidence the markets no longer place central bankers on the miracle worker’s pedestal. It also shows fear of debt-induced deflationary outcomes is now outweighing the fear of inflation. These are significant and dangerous shifts for the market’s risk/reward profile. If this shift continues, stocks (SPY) and commodities (DBC) may experience further, and rapid declines in the next six months, if not much sooner. We added to our short positions (SH) on August 8.

Stock Market Shorts May Prey On Serious Problems In Europe / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Bridgewater Associates is the world’s largest macro hedge fund firm, meaning they have a good handle on the problems in Europe. Some excerpts from a Bloomberg article on the firm’s current outlook:

These days, the view from Bridgewater is dour. They divide the world into two groups: developed debtor nations that are deleveraging and emerging creditor countries that are leveraging up. After years of overspending financed by borrowing, the former are being forced to lower their debt relative to their income levels, constraining spending levels and employment gains.

Stocks Bear Market Rally May Not have Ended / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

The post March 2009 closing high for the Industrials occurred on April 29th at 12,810.54 and for the Transports that high occurred on July 7th at 5,618.25.  This in turn left a Dow theory non-confirmation in place.  This was then followed by a close below the March 2011 secondary low points on August 4th.  As a result of this close, a Dow theory primary trend change occurred.   This is the first such occurrence since the bear market rally out of the March 2009 lows began and I do not take this development lightly.  But, at the same time, based on other technical factors, I also have to question this trend change.

Stock Market Sentiment At Extremes...Nearly Inverted... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

I started speaking about this phenomenon last week when the bull-bear spread got down to 4.3%. It was 7.6% the week before, and I must admit, I was surprised to see it drop to that 4.3% level. Then today the sentiment figures got even more bearish on the spread. Only a 1.1% spread between bulls and bears with the bulls at 38.7% and the bears at 37.6%. When levels get this low, and it is unusual that they do, getting sustainable downside action is not easy for the bears any longer. That doesn't mean there won't be down days because, of course, there will be. Some will be nasty. It just suggests that sustainable downside action will become far more difficult as the bear trade is full. When the bears are all in it gets too tough to kill the market. No different than when the bulls go all in. Upside action becomes more difficult. The bull-bear spread can invert negatively but that is rare.

Stock Market Crash 1929, Mystery Unraveled? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWim Grommen writes: In the twenties of the last century the world, and especially the United States, experienced an economical high. As a result of this, share and stock prices rose to unprecedented heights, beyond reasonable values. The underlying economy had decreased in strength without this being reflected on the stock exchange. Investors were euphoric and stock prices were forced up against all economic logic. (1)

The Fed's Twisted Plan / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile world markets sell off, and President Obama and Congress wrangle over some form of job-creating legislation, the Federal Reserve is busy with its own problems as it attempts to deal with stubbornly high and persistent unemployment. Expectations for additional quantitative easing (QE) are running very high, but there is the possibility that the Fed may undertake a different kind of QE program, designed to provide stimulus without actually putting more money into the system.

Stock Market Glass More Half Empty Than Half Full / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe battle between bulls and bears is tense right now (as the attached cover image from this week's Barrons illustrates)

WHAT WE SAID BEFORE:

We have previously provided charts and data supporting the Bull case, showing high and growing earnings with historically "normal" range valuation multiples, at the same time that bonds offer little in terms of yield and must eventually go down when rates must eventually go up -- with many stocks (even the S&P 500 index) providing dividend yields competitive with 10-year Treasuries.

Stock Market Odds Favour More Declines Ahead / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep and prolonged decline into about 2014.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The bull market which started on March 2009 at 667 appears to have ended at 1370. It is unclear if the first intermediate decline of the new bear market is over.

Logical Case for a 49% Stock Market Crash / Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith an apparent acceleration of the debt crisis in Europe and a prolonged budget fight set to continue in the United States, we have bear market drivers in place from a fundamental perspective. On Monday, two-year Greek notes traded at 50% of face value; the yield on 10-year Italian bonds rose another 27 basis points. Angela Merkel’s party lost weekend elections in Germany, which brings into question public support for more bailouts in Europe.

The Stock Market Black Monday the Public Doesn’t Know About / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI hope everyone had a fantastic Labor Day weekend. I truly enjoyed myself and was able to have some creativity with my 18 month daughter. I got some new office chairs last week and I finally had time to assemble them during the rainy and windy black Monday here in Canada… Just like a child on their birthday, I tossed the chair parts aside and played with the large boxes with Mirabelle.

Europe and Asia Stock Markets Labor Day Sell Off / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: George_Maniere

           For years, Labor Day weekend was a time to take a break from work and celebrate the fruits of our labor. Sadly last weekend was a time when millions of Americans wished they had a job to take a break from.  If you were awake or remotely paying attention last Friday September 2nd The U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics released the August 2001 jobs report and in a word - it was abysmal. The report showed that no jobs had been created in August. If this statistic was not so sad it would be laughable. What is even more telling then this report was that the prior two months had been revised down and I expect next month for the same thing to play out. The report will be revised down from zero to a negative number. There is no fudging the numbers. The jobs market is getting worse and fast.

Charts and Economic Data Point to a Bloody September for Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Capital3X

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSeptember is known to slay the mighty and yet it may just be the best opportunity of all months to make strong returns if one is able to realign portfolio to ride the momentum.

We will analyze charts from the Treasury market, S&P 500 Index, Volatility indices and AUD/USD to understand the market positioning. The data over the last couple of weeks has been negative the least to say.

Stock Market Big Picture / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat started off as a promising week for the equity markets ends mixed in the US: SPX/DOW -0.3%, and the NDX/NAZ +0.2%. In between, the market gapped up monday morning from friday’s SPX 1177 close. Then hit SPX 1231 on wednesday only to gap down friday ending the week at SPX 1174. Economic reports continued to be slanted to the downside. On the upswing: personal income/spending, PCE prices, the Case-Shiller index, factory orders, auto sales, the m1-multiplier, and jobless claims improved. On the downswing: pending home sales, construction spending the Chicago PMI, ISM manufacturing, the ADP index, monthly Payrolls, the monetary base, the WLEI, and consumer confidence plunged. Asian markets gained 1.9%, European markets gained 1.7%, the Commodity equity group gained 3.7%, and the DJ World index rose 1.6%. Next week we have the FED’s Beige book, ISM services, and Consumer credit.

No Jobs.....No Surprise... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

Even though there was supposed to be job creation near 100K, I don't think anyone should be shocked by the reality of absolutely no job creation. When we study the important economic reports that have come in recently, we see an economy that has consistently been heading lower towards recessionary numbers. The ISM Manufacturing Report stuck at 50 for the past two months. Anything below 50 is recessionary (contraction). The fact that we've spent two months at the save place after recently being as high as 61 can't be looked upon in a positive fashion. We've taken a plunge down in the past two months after stabilizing a bit, and now we seem to be on the road to further down side action economically. The saddest part being that there seems to be no way to cure what ills us all. Sure, the fed could give the economy of this country another blast of QE action, but we all know that the past two QE programs did nothing other than to create more inflation for those who simply cannot afford that type of outcome. Most of the fed governors are now totally against this type of program and have let it be known they'd vote against it if Mr. Bernanke wants it instituted.
