Stock Markets and Crude Oil Prices / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Asha_Bangalore

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe turmoil in the Middle East and North Africa has led to higher oil prices (see Chart 1, data plotted up to 3/1/2011).  Brent crude oil was trading at $116.99 ($113.07 on 3/1/2011) as of this writing and West Texas Crude was quoted at $101.68 ($99.63 on 3/1/2011).  The Libyan crisis has raised oil prices significantly in the last three trading days.  The crisis in the region commenced the day after a Tunisian man set fire to himself on January 21, 2011.

Has Crude Oil Spiking Kicked-Off a New Stocks Bear Market? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday, we cover specific strategies and tactics we may employ over the coming weeks with respect to our holdings, cash, the Fed, the outlook for stocks, oil prices, and key market levels. The recent spike in oil prices has many wondering if it is “déjà vu all over again”. In July 2008, oil prices surged to over $140 per barrel with the S&P 500 trading at 1,240. As oil came back to earth over the coming months, the S&P 500 did not find buyers until hitting 666 intraday in March 2009.

POMO? Where are you? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Guy_Lerner

Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke finishes his two day testimony in front of Congress and the one question I liked to see asked is: would you still consider QE2 a success if the equity markets were down 10% since you signaled your intent to purchase assets in August, 2010 as opposed to being up 30%?

Stock Market Correction, How Long and How Deep? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: John_Hampson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn my analysis of February 17th here, I suggested a stock market pullback was imminent but that the cyclical stocks bull was to continue longer term. It turned out to be timely, as we have been in correction since the 18th until today. So how long and how deep should we expect the market to consolidate or correct, and is the case for the underlying cyclical stocks bull to continue still as strong?

The Stock Market May Plunge / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Bob_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have seen a larger than normal pullback in the general stock market.  The media is already trotting out the perma bears to be interviewed.  They are quick to point out how over extended the bullish consensus is. They are right, it does not matter which one you look at, they are all saying the same thing.

The Math is Different at the Top / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Ashvin_Pandurangi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's Not Rocket Science. It's just basic arithmetic. 2+2 = 4 ...

Privately-owned central banks + discretionary monetary policy = systemic corruption/oppression.


If the Food & Drug Administration had 100% of its shares owned by private pharmaceutical companies, and, a few months after implementing some radical new regulatory directives, these companies began making record profits and their executives receiving record bonuses, then it wouldn't be too difficult to understand why.

NDX Lags, While Overall Stock Market Strong / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

2808 Nasdaq is a huge gap down created a week or so ago off the top. We got within 10 points today (2798) before a strong reversal lower took place. Small caps did the majority of the selling. The Nasdaq stocks as well as the Dow and S&P 500 were out performing throughout the entire trading day. The highest beta, most frothy stocks, took it on the chin showing classic bull market action. Nothing too heavy across the board, although we could definitely use more selling across the board to unwind things on those oscillators to oversold. No guarantee we get it, but the line in the sand is clearly drawn here. The Nasdaq is being protected by the 20-day exponential moving average down to the 50-day exponential moving average with gaps as well to help out while that huge open gap down at 2808 is capping things on the way up.

American Monster, Excerpts from The Madoff Tapes / Stock-Markets / Scams

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“It’s unbelievable. Goldman … no one has any criminal convictions—the whole new regulatory reform is a joke. The whole government is a Ponzi scheme.”


Here are some brief excerpts from a story in New York Magazine called The Madoff Tapes. The story runs to nine pages, so consider this just a taste and read the whole thing when you have the time. I thought Steve Fishman did a terrific job of letting Bernie talk and of presenting his thoughts in a orderly manner without a lot of interpretation and editorial intrusion. He has real talent as an interviewer, and seems a natural reporter.

Microcosm of the Market Manipulation in the US and the Repeated Failure of Ideology / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Jesse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am seeing this same sort of 'gaming the markets' across many markets and stocks that the author notes below, especially in those markets amenable to leverage and electronic manipulation such as indices driven by futures, options markets, and ETFs which more closely resemble carney games than investment vehicles.

Investing in Sweden – A Cold Country with a Hot Economy / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJason Simpkins writes: What comes to mind when you think of Sweden: Blonde hair, pale skin, and a pair of sullen blue eyes piercing through a whiteout - or an economy that grew 5.5% last year?

Too often, it's the former when it should be the latter.

Gold, Dollar, Stocks & Sentiment at Major Market Pivot Point / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far 2011 has been an interesting to say the least. Stocks and commodities have been jumping around with high volatility generating mixed trading signals. This choppy price action typically indicates trends are in their late stages. The late stages of a trend is very difficult to trade because volatility rises meaning larger day to day price swings, and at any time the price could either drop like a rock or go parabolic surging higher in value. Generally the largest moves take place during the final 10% of trend, but with a sharp rise in price keep in mind the day to day gyrations are much larger than normal, hence the false buy and sell signals back to back on some investment vehicles.

Stock Market SPX Correction May Be Over / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVery Long-term trend - The continuing strength in the indices is causing me to question whether we are in a secular bear market, or two cyclical bull/bear cycles side by side.  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.

Long-term trend -In March 2009, the SPX began an upward move in the form of a mini bull market.  Cycles point to a continuation of this trend for several more months.

Stocks Test Support, Gold Broadening Top, China Stalls as USD Tests Lows Again / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe FDIC Average Weekly Closures May be Rising.
The FDIC Failed Bank List announced only one new bank closure this week.  U.S. regulators said they seized a failed Illinois bank Friday, the second from that state this year. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said it received Valley Community Bank of St. Charles, Ill., and entered a purchase-and-assumption agreement with First State Bank of Mendota, Ill., to take over the failed bank.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment and a Quick Dow Theory Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Tim_Wood

Sentiment alone is not a timing tool for the market.  But, it is useful in telling us when too many people get on the same side of the boat, which in turn tells us that conditions have ripened for a turn.   I have said many times of late that the recent sentiment environment reminded me of the 2006 and 2007 period.    In the chart below I have included the S&P 500 and a sentiment indicator that is comprised of the Investor Intelligence Bulls divided by Bulls plus Bears.  In other words, this shows us the percentage of Bulls to total Bulls and Bears.  Now, note on the chart below that during the 2007 period when this reading rose above 72%, an intermediate-term top soon followed.

U.S. Treasury Bonds, Yen, Euro and Dollar Chart Analysis / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Justin_John

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTreasury: Close to entering a long term bear market on US treasury on 10 year duration. We believe the COT captures the true picture of the developing situation in the US as FED moves in with QE3 which will be close to $400-500 billion of asset purchase. COT for week ended Feb 26 indicates that shorts have increased their position with nearly 148k contracts shorted, an increase of 32k new shorts for the week.

Fibonacci and the Pricing Mechanism of Financial Markets, S&P500 and US Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvidence is mounting that the pricing mechanism of global markets creates spontaneous order out of the chaos of billions of people pursuing their self-interested purpose. Arriving at a price for products, services and financial assets is the heart of this process. There are successes and failures in every round of pricing, which are priced into the next cycle of human action in global markets.

Stock Market Topping, Treasuries Recovering and Gold is on a Tear / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInitial Claims Drop 22K To 391K, On Expectations Of 405K, Durable Goods Collapse -  (ZeroHedge)  Initial Claims, which were obviously revised higher from 410K to 413K, dropped well below expectations, printing at 391K, on expectations of 405K.  With claims continuing to hug the 400K line, this means that unfortunately the economy is not creating nearly enough jobs: as a reminder per the CBO, the US needs to create over 100K jobs a month just to stay in line with population growth. Continuing claims dropped from an (upward) revised 3935K to 3790K, as more and more people hit the 6 month continuing benefits cliff. They also are hitting the end of their 99 week extension period: those on extended benefits dropped by -111,087.
