Did Bernanke Bluff the Markets About QE3? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Graham_Summers

The markets roared from June to September, ever Fed mouthpiece Jon Hilsenrath of the WSJ penned an article calling for more QE in June. Fast-forward to mid-September and the Fed did indeed announce QE3, a plan that will see the Fed monetize $40 billion worth of Mortgage Backed Securities in addition to its plans to Twist $45 billion worth of Treasuries per month: a total monetization scheme of $85 billion.

Gold And The Disappearing Yield, Death of Equities? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTraditionally, when economies expanded stocks outperformed bonds; but these aren’t traditional times and although economies have expanded, over the past 30 years bonds have outperformed stocks.

Since 1981 the return on long-term government bonds averaged 11.5 %. The S&P stock index averaged 10.8 %; and, since 2000, the returns of stocks over bonds have widened. A major reason why bonds have done better is that since 1982 government bond yields have been declining; and when bond yields decline, bond profits rise.

Surmounting Budgetary Crystal Meth and the Ring of Fire / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DeviantInvestor

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“…when it comes to debt and to the prospects for future debt, the U.S. is not a ‘clean dirty shirt.’  The U.S., in fact, is a serial offender, an addict whose habit extends beyond weed or cocaine and who frequently pleasures itself with budgetary crystal meth….

“The International Monetary Fund, the Congressional Budget Office and the Bank of International Settlements compute a ‘fiscal gap’, which is a deficit that must be closed either with spending cuts, tax hikes or a combinations of both which keeps a country’s debt/GDP ratio under control…

Conclusion

Looking at a brief list (<1 page) of looming crises coupled with the best investment strategy for each, I come to this even shorter conclusion.  The common Denominator is going long Gold and Silver.  Secondary Strategies would be shorting a) The Dollar, b) Bond Markets and c) Mega Banks (could be bailed out?) in that order.

U.S. Dollar, Bonds, Gold, Commodities, and Stocks October Trend Forecasts / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past year we have had some really interesting things unfold in the market. Investing or even swing trading has been much more difficult because of all the wild economic data and daily headline news from all over the globe causing strong surges or sell offs almost every week.

For a while there you could not hold a position for more than a week without some type of news event moving the market enough to either push you deep in the money or get stopped out for a loss. This has unfortunately caused a lot of individuals to give up on trading which is not a good sign for the financial market as a whole.

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteve Schwarzman, Chairman and CEO of Blackstone, sat down with Bloomberg News' Jason Kelly and said that election scrutiny of private equity may pay off: "There's a point of view that these business have performed very well for institutions...Ironically, it gave the public and other people a chance to think through these arguments."

Schwarzman also said, "We have not seen any of the blow back that you might expect."

U.S. Dollar Frenzy Selling Opening Up Bullish Opportunities / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Darah_Bazargan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA market that experiences a climatic selling frenzy can often generate hyper-sold conditions which merit for an oversold rally, but not one that is sustainable to recover from such severe technical damage. Instead what occurs is prices fall back at minimum to retest the prior low, but the decline in motion is not nearly as dramatic. Thereafter becomes a scrimmage between both buyers and sellers until a general support area can be agreed upon, and to where the next bottom can then be established.

By: The_Gold_Report

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRight on the heels of the Republican and Democratic National Conventions, the recent Casey Research Summit in Carlsbad, California—cosponsored by SprottGlobal—focused on a timely theme: "Navigating the Politicized Economy." The somber revelations of the summit contrasted with the buzz of the party conventions.

Disinformation Avoidance for Investment Health, QE to Infinity / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The Big One Cometh” we wrote last week, and indeed IT, at least two Legs of IT, Did.

First, The ECB announced a program of “Unlimited Bond Buying,” “Q.E. to Infinity” as Jim Sinclair put it months ago and we concurred.

And now, The Fed has announced it will buy $40 Billion of Mortgages per Month for an unlimited time period.

But The Fed already has $2.8 Trillion on its Balance Sheet, and the ECB over $3 Trillion. The Powers-that-be claim this is not inflationary, but recent real Food and Energy Price Inflation show this to be untrue. And there is no mention of the problems of buying Impaired Collateral.

Dollar and Gold Resting on the Bernanke Decision / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Darah_Bazargan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOften is the case that the dollar will reverse just before or within days of a major anticipated news event. If I'm right, today's potential bottoming tail candlestick just shy of the Fed’s announcement tomorrow may be an indication of a Bernanke disappointment. On this basis, the dollar has bottomed and will likely undergo a sharp upward reversal into the remainder of this week.

Forex, Financial and Commodity Markets Shackles broken / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Capital3X

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe title of the post should have conveyed my thoughts. The shackles on ES and copper and AUDUSD and AUDJPY have been broken. Same for bond markets. There seems to be perfect harmony between the inter markets and this is where it gets safer to trade. Some weeks like last are difficult. Some weeks like the one coming could be easier to trade. But that is matter of perspective and hence treat all weeks similar.

Time to look at all those detailed analysis and charts. Make sure you roll down to the end of the post read the summary as well.

The Direction of Silver Prices before QE Forever / Commodities / Financial Markets 2012

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The price of silver has moved up from $27.50 seen just a week ago to stage a test of the $31.00 level. Although technical traders may consider this market currently over bought, the fact remains that a bull market can stay over bought for quite a long time.

It will be interesting to look back on this rally that began in the wake of the Financial Times’ story about the CFTC’s lack of evidence and impending conclusion of its four year study into manipulation of the silver market.

Gold Profit Nuggets From Grand Delusions / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Keynesian and monetarist economists claim all that’s needed to return prosperity in the PIIGS countries is looser money and their own currencies. The next best thing would be transforming the character of the euro from that of the German mark to the Italian lira. They’re wrong. A policy that tries to restore conditions that existed before the euro crisis will fail, just like the foolish U.S. policy effort to reinflate the housing bubble. Prosperity comes from savings and investment, not government deficits and welfare state programs financed by the printing press.” (emphasis added)
