Stock Market Running On Empty! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance. –Marcus Tullius Cicero (106-43 BC); Roman Statesman

It becomes harder and harder to find the truth and that certainly holds true with respect to government statistics. The investment world was pleased with the recent jobs report claiming 163,000 posts were created in July. It was a small step, but at least it was in the right direction. Or was it? When I tell you that the numbers are fudged I realize that doesn’t carry a lot of weight, but here’s what the Washington Post had to say about how the Bureau of Labor Statistics processes data:

Credit Crunch Fifth Anniversary / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Alasdair_Macleod

We are coming up to the fifth anniversary of the financial crisis, at least for the UK’s banking system, because it was five years ago that anxious depositors were queuing up to withdraw their money from Northern Rock, leading to its inevitable rescue by the tax-payer.

Gold, Silver, Stocks and U.S. Dollar Markets Outlook / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Chad_Bennis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week saw consolidation in the markets as they moved within the confines of tight ranges seeking direction. The direction has not yet been confirmed, but there are some insights we may be able to see in the technical picture that will help us understand what the markets want to do. There was a sell signal in the SP500, gold and silver that was triggered on Thursday and it was the first since August 3rd, but by the time friday morning had rolled along the market reconfirmed its bullish bias by closing higher. This behavior confirms that these markets are currently in confirmed up trends and may be setting up for higher prices. Let’s take a look at the market’s behavior.

Protecting Democracy And Profits From The Globalist Threat / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“If governments allow themselves to be entirely bound to the decisions of their parliament, without protecting their own freedom to act, a breakup of Europe would be a more probable outcome than deeper integration.”

 

Italy’s unelected prime minister Mario Monti, 8/6/2012

Shocking but not surprising, is that attitude of Italy’s unelected Prime Minister Mario Monti that “Governments” should not be bound by the decisions of their democratically elected parliaments and should be free to act without regard to the decisions of their citizens.

Financial Algorithmic Trading and Knight Capital Calamity / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: BATR

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOnce all the rage was arbitrage trading. High frequency trading then became the catchphrase. Now the latest scheme to insert financial nanotech - rage against the machine – practices called algorithmic trading created an automated loss of historic proportions. The Knight Capital calamity gave rise to rogue mathematics gone amuck. What a surprise! Removing buy or sell decisions from human hands is the quickest way to destroy a company that took years to build. How the euphemism "TRADING" applies to the upheaval of computerized speculation, could only make sense in the weird world of Wall Street accounting.

Could Speed-of-Light Market Trading Trigger The Next Systemic Crisis? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleComputers don't sleep, don't get tired, don't care about politics and don't go on holiday in August -- but they can wreak havoc in the global financial marketplace by amplifying moves on the up- and down-sides as we recently saw with the "Dark" Knight fiasco involving 140 stocks listed on the New York Stock Exchange of which nearly 40 moved more than 10% in less than an hour.  The "Knightmare on Wall Street" has cast new doubts on the automated High-Frequency Trading (HFT) systems that now totally dominate global exchange trading, despite multi-million-dollar lobby groups proclaiming from rooftops that HFT is not only safe and stabilising but beneficial to humankind.  Powerful algorithms -- “algos” in industry parlance -- execute millions of orders per second and can scan dozens of public and private marketplaces simultaneously. They can not only spot trends before other investors can blink, changing orders and strategies automatically within milliseconds, they can also choreograph and co-ordinate strategies across geographies and asset classes.

Market Outlook for Metals, Stocks and U.S. Dollar / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Chad_Bennis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis past week saw a number of headline driven news as central banks attempt to intervene in the global economic fiasco. They have pledged to goose the monetary supply by instituting bond purchasing programs in their respective nations, but all we have is talk and the action is yet to come. So, let’s take a step back and examine the technical picture outside of any promises to act.

Keynesian Investors Being Ground into Euro Dust / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOccasionally, I read something in the mainstream financial media whose degree of delusion takes my breath away. This is such a sentence (August 2, 2012).

U.S stock index futures pointed to a higher open on Wall Street on Thursday, with investors hoping the European Central Bank will signal further measures to aid growth and prevent the euro zone collapsing.

Fed Hits Kill Switch On Market Liquidity / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLately investors have been worried about liquidity, specifically the central bank's willingness (or unwillingness) to continue providing it, and with good reason. Without periodic injections of liquidity, investors eventually lose interest as financial markets begin to languish. And in a financial economy like the U.S., the death of a bull market means the death of the economic recovery.

Bull markets are to a large extent liquidity driven affairs. Without an abundance of excess monetary liquidity sloshing through the financial market, stocks and commodities have little hope of developing the necessary ingredient of forward momentum. Momentum is what attracts an ever-growing number of investors to participate in a bull market, which in turn is what keeps the bull market going. When liquidity dries up, momentum perishes and investors quickly lose interest. This, in a nutshell, is how bull markets turn into bear markets, viz. the absence of liquidity.

Knight Capital and High Frequency Trading Making Markets Skittish / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDinakar Singh, founder of $4 billion hedge fund TPG-Axon Capital, spoke with Bloomberg TV’s Erik Schatzker and Stephanie Ruhle on “Market Makers” today, saying that investors are scared and are paying a lot for safety.  Singh said that the commodities “super cycle” is over because of falling Chinese productivity and profits—and that profits are improving the most in Japan.

Singh went on to say that he sees growth in the chemical, health-care and aerospace industries and likes Sirius XM and W.R. Grace.  He also said “we are bearish on some financials, U.S. regional banks especially” and that he is betting against telecom stocks.

Euro Crisis - What Crisis? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The European Central Bank indicated on Thursday (2nd. August) it may again start buying government bonds to reduce crippling Spanish and Italian borrowing costs but the conditions it set and the dissenting voice of its key German member disappointed markets.

In the latest move to contain the eurozone crisis, ECB President Mario Draghi indicated that any intervention would not come before September - and only if governments activated the euro zone's bail-out funds to join the ECB in buying bonds.

Lose $10 Million Per Minute for 45 Minutes Non-Stop, Computerised Trading losses Mount at the Dark Knight / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DK_Matai

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlgorithms Rule This Asymmetric Brave New World

Welcome to this asymmetric brave new world ruled by computerised algorithms that are causing more chaos in minutes than what human-beings were previously able to bring about in decades. The Knight Capital Group, the Jersey City, New Jersey-based brokerage firm -- one of America’s biggest market makers -- announced on Thursday that it lost $440 million because of a mis-firing computer program, which carried out nonsensical trades for three quarters of an hour on Wednesday before it was shut down. The losses caused by computerised trading malfunction are greater than the company’s consolidated revenue of $289 million in the second quarter of this year, never mind its earnings or profits. Knight’s automated high frequency trading algorithmic computer program ran out of control for about 45 minutes, which means the company lost $10 million for each minute the new software was running. A non-human employee of Knight Capital -- not a human rogue trader on this occasion -- executed the crippling damage in less than one hour on one of America's largest brokerage houses which had been going strong for nearly two decades.

Systemic Upheaval, Economic Recovery Vs Propaganda Reality Check / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome extremely powerful differentials in power are setting themselves up, in a manner never seen before in modern history. Those who dismiss the uniqueness of the situation are those who continually are surprised by events as they unfold. The pressure features the managers of the system, complete with corruption and fraud with official coverups in a never-ending sequence of crime scenes, pitted against the forces of justice and fair markets. Not a single fair market exists in USDollar terms. In pure Orwellian style, every single market has a US-based or London-based financial engineer at a control panel doing duty in price intervention. The Western defenders of the syndicate do not wish for the price structure to reflect the reality of physical shortage or the bounty of paper-based surplus, for the currencies to reflect true toxic value, and for the discovery price systems to reflect the raids of private accounts. The system is broken, and the pressure is building.
