Rising Stock Market Vollatility - Watch out below! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

I have profiled the 4.3-year trendline which was violated yesterday. You can see that there was another false breakout on September 29. Whether that breakout remains standing at the end of the day is uncertain, since there is a double Trading Cycle Pivot on Saturday.

Today is all about options expiration. This week is known as quadruple witching, which adds to the potential volatility.

Is This The Debt Jubilee? / Interest-Rates / Global Debt Crisis 2016

By: John_Rubino

Not so long ago the financial world viewed certain numbers as limits beyond which lay trouble. Interest rates near zero, for instance, were thought to risk destabilizing the banking system. And government fiscal deficits above 3% were considered so dangerous that exceeding this level was prohibited by the Maastricht treaty that all euorzone members were required to sign.

Those numbers -- 0% and 3% -- are still considered bad. But now for the opposite reason: They're insufficiently aggressive.

Market Explodes on FOMC News / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices had an interesting session with a mixed close, although they did come way off the lows early on when the indices had an early dip. They then stair-stepped their way higher in a 5-wave advance, pulled back to hold support, and then rallied back to resistance. When they couldn’t get through, they backed off into the close. At the end of the day, they did close green on St. Patrick’s Day on the blue chips.

Gold and Silver March Madness / Commodities / Gold and Silver 2016

By: Jesse

"The main thing is that the debt is in dollars. So we can't run out of cash--we print the stuff. Suppose that foreigners decide we're not reliable. How does that drive up interest rates? The Fed controls short-term interest rates, and long-term interest rates reflect expected short rates. How's that supposed to happen?" Paul Krugman, Interview on CNNMoney

Well, at least now we know why gold was knocked down lower in the paper trading earlier this week.

Russian Stock Market Great Long Term Buy: Inflation Down 50% YOY / Stock-Markets / Russia

By: Sol_Palha

For a long time, we have been stating that the Sell-off in both the Ruble and the Russian stock market provided the astute investors with a great long-term buying opportunity.  Well, This chart proves that things are getting better and that the Sanctions that the West imposed on Russia at the behest of the America was a stupid idea, but more importantly, it has made Russia even stronger. The chart below is proof of this; inflation is down over 50% year over year. Translation things must be getting better.

Forex Big Reaction to Little Action / Currencies / Forex Trading

By: Nadia_Simmons

Yesterday, the Fed announced that it had decided to leave the interest rates unchanged. However, this doesn't mean that nothing changed. There was something that the Fed said that altered the outlook.

What was it? The Fed now signals two rate hikes in 2016 instead of four. Some investors even say that the Fed's tightening cycle is over. Either way that's a bearish piece of information for the USD Index, so yesterday's move lower in it may (!) be followed by a few additional daily downswings (and it appears that we are seeing one now).

More Stock Market Volatility Following Fed's Decision Release - Uptrend Reversal Or Just Consolidation? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion, speculative short positions are favored (with stop-loss at 2,050, and profit target at 1,900, S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is bearish, and our short-term outlook is bearish, as we expect a downward correction or short-term uptrend's reversal at some point. Our medium-term outlook remains bearish, as the S&P 500 index extends its lower highs, lower lows sequence. We decided to change our long-term outlook to neutral recently, following a move down below medium-term lows:

Fractal Analysis Shows Coming 70s Style Gold Stocks Rally From Even Cheaper Levels / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2016

By: Hubert_Moolman

In terms of the gold price, gold stocks are currently at better value than at the beginning of the bull market in 2001. In 2001, at the bottom of the gold bull market, the XAU to Gold ratio was around 0.2 compared to 0.05 today. In other words, gold stocks are cheaper than they were in 2001. In fact, they are cheaper than they have been the last 78 years at least.

If you are confident that the gold bull market is about to continue, and trust gold stocks as the best  “vehicle” to take advantage of the gold bull market, then it is probably an ideal time to get into these gold stocks.

Oil Price Won't Stage A Serious Rebound Until This Happens / Commodities / Crude Oil

By: OilPrice_Com

Oil prices have shown signs of life over the past few weeks, as production declines in the U.S. raise expectations that the market is starting to adjust. As a result, Brent crude recently surpassed $40 per barrel for the first time in months.

A growling list of companies are capitulating, announcing production cuts for 2016. Continental Resources, for example, could see output fall by 10 percent. A range of other companies have made similar announcements in recent weeks. The energy world has been speculating about declines from U.S. shale, and the declines are finally starting to show up in the data.

FOMC Bring on the Clowns, Dollar, Gold and Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016

By: Dan_Norcini

Honestly, more and more that seems to be the best phrase to describe when waiting for these FOMC statements to be revealed.

If we are not seeing a case of deliberate attempts to break the back of their own currencies among these Central Bankers, then "Scotty, beam me up!"

With the Fed Fund futures showing sharp increases AHEAD of the FOMC statement of rate hike probabilities, today's ultra dovish statement had everyone positioned on the wrong side of the currency markets yet once again. The result was yet another unleashed chaos courtesy of our Central Bankers.

I built this chart using a line chart and then leaving the trendlines in place I converted to a bar chart. As you can see it has been backtesting the neckline for the last week or so along with the 200 dma. This chart shows a reversal pattern which sets up a downtrend of some kind. This is an important development.

Which is the latest of a myriad of policies aimed squarely at stoking UK housing market demand, effectively QE for first time buyers as the government seeks to hand out £1,000 for every £4,000 saved as long the monies are used to either buy ones first home or to fund retirement.

The Office of Budgetary Responsibility has once more dutifully pumped out economic propaganda for the UK government in its latest report, where the most notable revision was to increase the amount the government will borrow over its term in office from the original £115 billion (May 2015) to now £178bn, a 54% increase in the amount they said they would borrow at the outset, and which is set against their November 2015 revision higher to £143bn.
