Stock Market Poor Action Overall Continues... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

Five straight gap downs is not something that happens very often. It makes you step back and wonder what it means. Maybe it means nothing bigger picture. Maybe it means something very important. There's one thing, though, that is clear and that's the simple fact that there are now many open gaps that will keep the wallet on the hip for the bulls, and encourage the bears to get more aggressive when gaps are hit from underneath.

Combining Economic and Stock Index Technical Analysis / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent worries about another global economic slowdown began months ago with news of the euro-zone’s debt crisis, and more recently the austerity measures Europe has adopted to tackle budget deficits. Worries then worsened with reports of China’s slowing growth, and indications of the severity of the slowdown in the U.S.

Stock Market Mandarin Monday as China Moves into Second Place / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChina became the World’s 2nd largest economy this weekend. Or rather, Japan became number three because it’s not so much what China did as what Japan did not do, which was (or was not, in this case) grow.  Japan’s GDP came in at a pathetic 0.4% annualized pace in Q2, about 1/6 of the 2.3% pace expected and 90% slower than the 4.4% pace of Q1.  At least we can’t call Japan a “double dip” – they haven’t been out of a recession since the ’80’s…

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. stocks fell on again on Friday, with the S&P 500 Index dropping a fourth day in a row, as weaker-than- estimated retail sales drove down consumer shares and Intel sank to a six-month low. Nordstrom. declined 7.2% after saying expenses increased in the second quarter, while retailers J.C. Penney Co. and Kohl’s Corp both .retreated at least 3.2%.

Utilities had the only gain among 10 industry groups in the S&P 500 after Dyneg received a takeover bid.

Emerging Stock Markets Thrive as U.S. Shares Tumble / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: As the U.S. stock markets struggle in the midst of slowing economic growth, emerging stock markets are thriving as their surging economies provide cover for savvy investors.

Stocks tripped over the past week after a weak jobless claims report and a lukewarm revenue outlook from Cisco Systems Inc. (NASDAQ: CSCO) on Thursday put an exclamation point on worries about a muddled Federal Reserve Bank policy. U.S. markets lost more than 4% in one of their weakest five-day spans of the year, including a 90% Downside Day on Wednesday that featured a rare event: All 30 stocks in the Dow Jones Industrials Average closed lower.

Stocks Distributing Into Weak Hands, Politicians With the Worst of Intentions / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Steve_Betts

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAncient Rome declined because it had a Senate, now what's going to happen to us with both a House and a Senate? - by Will Rogers, humorist

Housing foreclosures hit new highs last month as the hangover from the housing bubble continues. It is estimated that 32% of all mortgages now have negative equity, meaning the debt on the house exceeds the value of the house. So here’s a question: if you bought a house for US $400,000, you have a mortgage on it for $350,000, and it’s worth US$ 225,000, what is the proper business decision to make? I’m not talking about the moral dilemma here; I am simply looking at it as a business decision.

Central Bankers Stoking the Inflation Fires, Whilst Academic Economists Worry about Deflation / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week the Bank of England Governor Mervyn King realised that his attempts at talking inflation down have failed and that now 8 months on he is looking rather foolish by continually stating that high inflation is just temporary, where even the mainstream press that had been lapping up the mantra are now no longer taking him seriously, so now the Governor is suggesting that inflation will remain above the 2% target level for the whole of 2011 (current CPI 3.2%, RPI 5%) which translates into watch for UK CPI to go above 4% and and RPI above 6% during 2011, in line with my expectations since early May.

Stocks, Housing and Economy, Mass Delusion American Style / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: James_Quinn

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Men, it has been well said, think in herds; it will be seen that they go mad in herds, while they only recover their senses slowly, and one by one." - Charles Mackay- Extraordinary Popular Delusions and the Madness of Crowds

The American public thinks they are rugged individualists, who come to conclusions based upon sound reason and a rational thought process. The truth is that the vast majority of Americans act like a herd of cattle or a horde of lemmings. Throughout history there have been many instances of mass delusion. They include the South Sea Company bubble, Mississippi Company bubble, Dutch Tulip bubble, and Salem witch trials. It appears that mass delusion has replaced baseball as the national past-time in America. In the space of the last 15 years the American public have fallen for the three whopper delusions:

Stock Market Party on Wall Street Like Its 1929 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Tuesday, the Fed announced that it will reinvest the proceeds from maturing mortgage-backed securities (MBS) into US Treasuries. The process is called Quantitative Easing. In theory, Q.E. increases inflation expectations so that consumers spend more and rev up the economy. That's the theory.  But adding to bank reserves when the banks are already loaded to the gills, achieves nothing.  It doesn't put money in the hands of people who will spend it, generate more economic activity or increase growth. It's a big zero. Oddly enough, the Fed even admits this. According to an article in Bloomberg News, "The Central Bank posted a paper co-written by Seth Carpenter, associate director of the Fed’s monetary-affairs division, finding that the “quantity of reserve balances itself is not likely to trigger a rapid increase in lending.” No "increase in lending" means no credit expansion and no rebound. Thus, QE will have no real impact.

No August Surprise, Just a Modern Day Jubilee Debt Collapse / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: David_Knox_Barker

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets were briefly in a tizzy last week because of the rumor the Obama Administration was poised to announce an August Surprise, supposedly the forgiveness of at least a portion of millions of mortgages held by Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac for underwater homeowners. The word on the street was that this planned debt forgiveness was a thinly veiled attempt to cull votes for the November elections. Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac hold the mortgages insured by the U.S. government and backstopped by taxpayers, loans the private sector may not have made due to the unacceptable credit risks of the borrowers. These quasi-government behemoths now hold over $5 trillion in mortgages. These mortgages are in pole position for the next leg down of the unfolding housing disaster.

Gold in a Bull Market, Stocks in a Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Adam_Brochert

To me, the title is stating the obvious. To many, such talk is ridiculous. To paperbugs, Gold is a bubble about to pop and only stocks make you money over the long haul. To paperbugs, capitalizing the word "Gold" labels me a tinfoil hat wearer, while to me, capitalizing the phrase "federal reserve" (not federal and has no reserves) is blasphemy. How supremely ironic that everything the ex-American presidents Jefferson and Jackson warned of when it comes to central bankstaz has come to pass and yet their countenances grace the $2 and $20 federal reserve IOU-nothing notes.

Stock Market Has NO Bid At 1080 S&P 500... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

This is shocking if you think about it. Straight down 50 points. Right at critical support after four straight gap downs, and at oversold on the 60-minute charts. It still is having trouble catching a bid where it needs to hold. I still think there's a decent chance we get a small bounce up early next week, but it looks as if the market wants lower sooner than later. It is very unusual to see four straight gaps lower.

Hoping the Weekend Brings Market Perspective / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Rosenberg is the special guest on CNBC this morning.
Sometimes I get the impression they intentionally counter-program any bullish point I bring up (we talked about Rosenberg in yesterday’s post).   As I did say yesterday - fear sells and CNBC is in the business of selling fear, driven by their own fear of declining ratings (new lows in the last book) and irrelevance.  I think one of the problems with CNBC is that they forget they are on television.  On the right, I am SHOWING you a chart of weekly unemployment - TV is supposed to be all about showing you things but the only things they show you are gigantic talking heads and the dreaded "octo-box" where the loudest guy with the best one-liner wins (I guess).
