Sun Spots Solar Activity and the Financial Markets Part II  / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you have not already read the first part of my analysis on Solar Activity and the Financial Markets, please do so here, as it provides important background for part II.

In that article I provided evidence that rising solar activity into a solar peak is correlated with periods of inflation and that in historical secular commodities bull markets the relative pricing of hard assets to stocks has each time peaked at the solar peak. Commodities are sought after in inflationary times and their prices are a key ingredient in consumer price inflation levels, producing a feedback loop, but given that stocks also usually perform well in inflationary times is there any correlation between stocks and solar cycles?

We dont tell them, just between you and me, we are closer to a top than a bottom. I recently saw dshort.com QRAtio market valuation of stocks and it also suggest that stocks are handsomely priced.

U.S. Dollar's Impact on S&P 500, Gold, and Crude Oil / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI was starting to put on my bullish hat on Friday morning when out of the blue an ugly close has forced me to rethink my position. After viewing a few hundred charts, I have determined that while I am still leaning into higher prices at this point in time, I will not totally rule out a rollover on the S&P 500. In coming days the news flow will be extreme and headline risk will be everywhere we look. The S&P 500 has been able to deflect worry for quite some time now and in every case the resiliency is unquestionable.

Stock Market Pullback Before Going Higher Likely / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

Very Long-term trend - The continuing strength in the indices is causing me to question whether we are in a secular bear market or two consecutive cyclical bull/bear cycles. In any case, the very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep and prolonged decline into 2014-15.

Stock Market Strong Week...Friday Reversal? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

This is the question we have to ask ourselves tonight. The market had a very nice week with today being the day we tested back up to resistance on both the S&P 500 and Nasdaq. The old high on the S&P 500 being 1344 with some resistance at 1332 first. We hit 1337 today right in the middle. The Nasdaq had strong horizontal resistance off a gap down at 2800 to 2808. We hit 2802 today on the highs. So in essence, both indexes hit their strong resistance levels today. The reason this is so important to look at is because we want to see what happened after resistance was hit.

The Fed Still Can’t End Stimulus Efforts! / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Sy_Harding

The strong jobs report for March has expectations rising that the Fed will dial back its QE2 stimulus right away, and begin raising interest rates soon.

Even prior to the jobs report the president of the Minneapolis Federal Reserve Bank, and a voting member of the Fed’s rate-setting committee, said he expects a “big upward movement” in inflation, making it “certainly possible” that the Fed will raise interest rates this year. He said the so-called Taylor Rule, a method of predicting interest rates based on inflation, points to a sizable 0.75% increase in the Fed Funds rate if the rate of inflation he expects shows up.

Will 1970s-Style Inflation Derail the Stocks Bull Market? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInflation can adversely affect corporate profits, household discretionary spending, and stock prices. Rising costs for raw materials have a dampening effect on profits. Increasing costs of food and energy begin to account for larger and larger portions of a household’s disposable income. From an investment perspective, when the annual inflation rate jumped significantly between 1971 and 1974, stock market (SPY) returns eventually suffered as shown below.

By: Bill_Bonner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Dow went up more than 70 points yesterday. The higher it goes, the more dangerous it becomes.

What’s the matter with this downturn? Shouldn’t it lower stock prices? Shouldn’t it empty tables at fancy restaurants? Shouldn’t it close down some of these luxury shops and make it easy to upgrade to business class?

A Lesson from Charlie Sheen (about the Stock Market) / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaybe I am a fan of Charlie's because of his role in the movie Wall Street, which motivated my career in finance. Perhaps it's the fact that I have enjoyed his films and his comedy.

I have to admit that Mr. Sheen has been accused of (and is guilty of) actions that I do not approve of or condone, but what I have found interesting is undeniable about the man -- he speaks his truth! (As irrational as it may seem or offensive as it may be.)

Are Stocks and Commodities About To Start Another Rally? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past couple months everyone seems to have been preparing for a sharp market correction. Crazy part is that the SP500 dropped about 10% from the high and that is a typical bull market correction. The thing is… the stock market has a way of slowly unfolding making it look and feel minor, then before you know it, the correction is over and it’s back to an uptrend. That is kind of how this one unfolded.
