World Wide Stock Market Crash on Pause

Stock-Markets / Financial Crash Sep 03, 2009 - 02:41 AM GMT

By: Investmentscore.com

Stock-Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDon't Be So Sure - Things Aren't Exactly 'Normal' - Starting in late 2007 and through 2008 a historic, worldwide market crash brought some of the largest corporations in the world to their knees.   Between bankruptcies and bailouts, many massive financial institutions have been struggling simply to keep alive.  Trillion dollar currency markets have been thrashing up and down like penny stocks.  The largest housing bubble in history has popped with governments intervening and thereby prolonging the effects.  Worldwide trillions of dollars in market equity has been lost.



So the critical questions we ask ourselves are:

  1. Is it realistic to think that the effects of these types of devastating events will be resolved in a matter of months?  We don't think so.
  2. Knowing that markets do not move up or down in a straight line, does it seem logical that the markets are now off to a new long term bull market; or could they be experiencing a temporary bounce?  We think that history would suggest a bounce.
  3. Given the huge amount of volatility in the market, does it make sense that in the short term many good indicators such as seasonal trends could be less reliable?  We think so.
We believe commodities are in a long term bull market and therefore we look for lower risk opportunities to add to our positions.  Based on seasonal trends we have typically added to our precious metal positions in the summer and fall months as we did last November.  We have heard many analysts suggesting that seasonal trends are once again in the investors favor, but given the circumstances, we are proceeding with caution.

Because of the historic drop in all markets we predicted that this summer's seasonal trends would be different than most years and instead of a falling market we would see a rising market.  The following chart illustrates the monthly percentage gains of the Dow Jones Industrial Average compared to an average of the monthly percentage gains over the last eight years.



As you can see in the chart above, which is based on the past four years of data averaged together, the typical weak summer months of July and August were very strong in 2009.  This year the seasonal trends are different, showing a mega bounce which followed a mega drop.  In other words the pure power of the markets momentum trumped the power of the typical seasonal trends.  Our next chart illustrates how big that mega bounce has been since February of this year.



Based on the last eight years of monthly Dow Jones Industrial Average data averaged together, the above chart helps illustrate just how big the market bounce has been since February.  Similar to a rubber band being stretched, when the market fell hard and fast over 2008, it was inevitable that a snapback rally, like the one we are seeing today, would follow.  It is this momentum driven bounce that we believe is taking the market higher rather than fundamental influences such as seasonal trends.  Once again we can visually see how the markets momentum, in this situation, is much more important than seasonal influences.

We are not suggesting that prices within the Dow Jones and other markets cannot head higher from the date of this article.  In fact it would not surprise us if the markets in general started a new drop now or if it continued to climb until March 2010.  However, it is our opinion that the fundamental problems within the US and around the world are monumentally big and we believe the recent worldwide market drops are evidence of that.  We do not believe such massive imbalances can be quickly resolved and we do not believe the typical seasonal patterns are as reliable this year as they have been in the past.  Anything can happen in the markets and we cannot guarantee that the US markets are going to test or possibly break through their old lows in the not too distant future.  Unfortunately we do not have a crystal ball.  However, we do not think these markets are off to another long term bull market and we are very skeptical that this potential bounce will last too much longer.
