Stocks Almost Back In Black / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe AC/DC-like comeback since March 9th was almost complete, as the Dow Jones climbed 140 points early on yesterday on the back of better than expected retail sales numbers, a fall in jobless claims (though continuing claims climbed ever higher), a successful 30 year Treasury bond auction and a bullish cross in the 200 and 30 day moving averages. But Boeing lowering it’s 20 year forecast for the commercial plane market for the first time in a decade, oil topping $73 barrel (on an IEA report predicting rising demand) and tech and consumer discretionary stock weakness dragged the major indices back down, resulting in the Dow only registering a 32 point gain. I preferred Bon Scott anyway.

Stocks Take Solace In the Fed Economic Beige Book / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDéjà vu, as there was a late rally yesterday evening spurred by the Fed’s Beige book which noted that 5 of the 12 districts saw “that the downward trend is showing signs of moderating”. The market had earlier dipped on news of a very stodgy 10 year US Treasury Bond Auction (where investors demanded 3.99%, the highest yield since August 2008, to buy the government securities) and worries about inflation and higher gasoline pump prices. Note also that figures yesterday showed new mortgage applications at a four month low. Hardly surprising given a 30 year mortgage now costs 5.57% from 4.61% in March.

Stocks Snooze While The Great Economic Recovery Debate Rumbles / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA light volume yawn day saw equities crawl over the finish line to finish marginally higher. The bigger winners were the semiconductors stocks (up 4%) on the back of the bullish news from Texas Instruments Monday night. VIX (volatility) was down 5% which was odd given the tiny margin moves in the equity indices. Crude oil closed over $71 barrel (a high since Oct 2008) on seasonal demand and spec bets on the reflation trade. The Greenback was again looking soggy losing 1% though the three year Treasury Bond auction went well. Indeed fear of Fed rate hikes by the autumn appear way overdone.

Suspicious Late Day Spike Pushes Stocks Flat / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome very strange price (and some would say suspicious) action around 20.15 last night saw the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones spike sharply to close flat having been under water to the tune of 130+ points earlier in the session. Despite sluggish sales from McDonalds and news that Apple was cutting the price of its iPhones, traders cited “programme buying” from JP Morgan and UBS for the late rally. After the bell Texas Instruments increased their 2nd quarter forecasts while self appointed Mr Know ALL Nobel prize winner (and boy has it gone to his head) Paul Krugman opined that the Great Recession with end for the U.S. by September.

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Stock and Commodity Trends Impact of a Weak U.S. Dollar / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleComments as of Wednesday's close: Risk assets have been benefiting from a weakening U.S. dollar. On Wednesday, the dollar strengthened on concerns about the economy (acting as a safe haven). From a technical perspective the dollar index has some support near 79.05 and 78.98 (today’s low was 78.33 – we are at 79.53 now). Last time these areas came into play, a three week countertrend rally followed, which is one reason we have been taking relatively small positions in recent weeks. A multi-week dollar counter-trend move is a possibility - we just need to be aware of it.

Stocks Consolidate But Watch Finanicals / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA day of consolidation for stocks, while pending homes sales data, was a shade better than the lowly expectations (as record highs in affordability lured buyers) and the autos sales numbers were tad less awful than the markets were bracing for. The disappointment was again from the unwillingness of financials to partake in the up move after stock offerings to repay the TARP.

Why May’s Stock Market and Commodities Gains Can Continue / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: John_Derrick

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe book is closed on May, and what a great month it was for commodities, precious metals and emerging markets. And there are several good reasons to believe that the strong performance will continue in June and beyond.

The price of oil rose nearly 30 percent in May to close above $66 a barrel. This was oil’s biggest monthly gain since March 1999, when it climbed more than 36 percent. Natural gas picked up 14 percent, reversing its negative trend so far in 2009.

Stock Market Shrugs off GM Bankruptcy / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMain Street takes a hit in GM bankruptcy - The loser in a General Motors Corp. bankruptcy would be Main Street, not Wall Street, said a lawyer who represented Chrysler LLC’s dissident lenders and is trying to organize bondholders who hold up to $7 billion in GM’s debt.  What’s being offered is the U.S.-backed plan to give the American and Canadian governments as much as 69 percent of the equity and a 17.5 percent trust for unions, while bondholders only get 10%.    GM plans to file for bankruptcy on June 1, people familiar with the matter said.

The Great Bond Market Massacre Spills Over into Stocks / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I’ve written in this column before, the Fed was always playing a dangerous game of chicken with the market, with its half hearted attempts at Quantitative Easing. To date Quantitative Easing has failed miserably and the rise up in 10 year bond yields to 3.72% from 2.5% in March, sending mortgage rates soaring has completely neutered the Fed.
