Fiscal Y2Cliff Sham Held Investors Hostage 2012 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: InvestmentContrarian

John Paul Whitefoot writes: On January 1, 2000, the world breathed a collective sigh of relief that the over-hyped Y2K fiasco dissipated without even a whimper after years of ballyhoo.

Some things never change.

As expected, at the last moment, Democrats and Republicans came together in joyous union and resolved the so-called fiscal cliff. Nervous investors around the world joined together with rapturous optimism and jumped back into the markets.

Most Popular Financial Markets Analysis of 2012, Exponential Inflation Mega-trend Continues into 2013 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Whilst 2012 closed with a whimper, 2013 starts with a BANG! as the fiscal cliff collapse crash mantra goes the same way as the Mayan doom prophecies barely of a fortnight earlier. Though don't worry there will be plenty more cliff-hangers for the always imminent crash merchants to hang onto during 2013 that I will seek to debunk during 2013, unless that is the actual probability of such events is high.

But before looking ahead towards the prospects for the likes of the stocks stealth bull market for 2013 and other markets such as housing and commodities, this is a look back at a selection of the 10 most popular articles of 2012.

Market Asset Class Correlations Imply Swift Selling in Coming Days / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Tony_Pallotta

For the week ending December 28, 2012, the SPX was down 1.9%, the Russell small caps were down 1.7% and the COMP was down 1.8%.

The model triggered short all indices in mid October. The move had not fully exhausted itself when a countertrend rally began the week of Thanksgiving. But the move was being profiled as countertrend based on the stress profile and therefore not the start of a new uptrend. That was confirmed this week when support levels failed to hold. And based on Friday's close a renewed short signal was issued for the Dow, SPX and COMP.

2012 - Year Of Living Dangerously In Review / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: James_Quinn

On January 8 of this year I posted my annual prediction article for this year - 2012 – The Year of Living Dangerously. Now it's time to assess my complete and utter cluelessness when it comes to predicting things within a given time frame. Despite the fact that myself and everyone else acting like they know what lays ahead are proven wrong time and time again, we continue to make predictions about the future. It makes us feel like we have some control, when we don't. The world is too complex, too big, too corrupt, too lost in theories and delusions, and too dependent upon too many leaders with too few brains to be able to predict what will happen next. This is the time of year when all the "experts" will be making their 2013 predictions. I haven't seen too many of these experts going back and honestly assessing their 2012 predictions, which didn't happen.

Rising Euro, Falling Dollar, Market Correlations Turned / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: P_Radomski_CFA

This week has brought in some calm after recent declines in the precious metals sector. Everybody seems to be waiting for some more decisive moves (both in the markets and on the part of the government, as the “fiscal cliff” issue has not been resolved yet), but these are not very likely before the beginning of the New Year.

Fiscal Cliffs Precede Fiscal Valleys / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

It is not the fall that kills us. It is the collision with the ground. It is not the ‘fiscal cliff’ that we should fear. It is the fiscal valley that lies beyond the fiscal cliff that will kill us. Can a fall from the cliff be prevented?

The answer is ‘no’. The ‘fiscal cliff’ is Fed Chairman Bernanke’s metaphor for the expiration of the Bush-era tax cuts. Congress must act to again extend the lower tax rates as they did previously or taxes rise starting in January of 2013. The fiscal cliff is therefore a tax increase on the American public. Get ready. The ground is approaching quickly.

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Yesterday’s price action was very bearish yet again and we are patiently waiting for a counter trend pullback to happen. While three are some good looking plays out there I really do not want to get long until the market clears the air with a bout or three of strong selling. Remember 3:4 stocks follow the market and the odds of picking a commodity or ETF that bucks the trend is unlikely.

Investor Profit & Protect Despite Bogus Official Data & The Coming Hyperinflation / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Set by Uncontained Fiscal Malfeasance, and Exacerbated by Still-Unfolding Effects of the 2008 Systemic Panic and Near-Collapse, U.S. Hyperinflation Looms by End of 2014.  After decades of U.S. government fiscal mismanagement, by 2004, the U.S. budget deficit was so out of control that it had become both unsustainable and uncontainable.  Using generally accepted accounting principles (GAAP-accounting), the deficit for just the fiscal-year 2004 exploded to $11.0 trillion&h

Global Financial System Big Turning Point Has Finally Hit / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

I believe we are at a major turning point for the financial system.

For nearly four years, the entire financial system has been held together (just barely) by extraordinary interventions on the part of the world’s Central Banks.

Popular Delusions, The Bull Case for Safe Havens / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: John_Mauldin

A month ago in Outside the Box, Dylan Grice made the case for the need for safe havens, due to expansive monetary policy. But what is a safe haven anymore?

In today’s piece, a follow-up to last month’s, Dylan gives us a very good rundown on the historical relationship between equities and government bonds, in order to point out the very atypical current negative correlation between them. He then observes that

The "Fiscal Cliff" Story You're Not Hearing from the Mainstream Press / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DailyWealth

Dan Ferris writes: Investors are scared...

In fact, they're even more scared today than they were in late 2008.

That's hard to believe... In 2008, the market was down close to 50% from its late-2007 highs. The housing market was crushed. Bear Stearns, Merrill Lynch, Lehman Brothers, and AIG had all gone out of business in one way or another. Officials from the Federal Reserve and U.S. Treasury were running around like chickens with their heads cut off... bailing out losers in the financial industry.

Marc Lichtenfeld writes: On Thanksgiving, most of us in the United States will be with friends and family, sitting around festive tables filled with way more food than we need, sharing all of the things that we’re thankful for.

Yes, I’m thankful for my family, the abundant meal, puppies, rainbows and all of the heartwarming stuff like everyone else. But this is an investment e-letter, so here’s what I’m thankful for when it comes to the financial markets…

Financial Markets Second Shoe About to Drop?  / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe first shoe dropped to the floor in September 2008. With heroic obtuseness regarding the causes, the world’s central bankers flooded the financial markets with liquidity.  Arguably, all that this achieved was a type of Indian summer.  It seems that we are about to experience the consequences of that misguided behaviour.  There is no such thing as a free lunch. One cannot create wealth out of thin air by printing money.

The four charts below seem to be pointing to an important inflexion point. The financial markets appear to be on the verge of panic.

Gold Prepares for Breakout as Stock Market Trends Towards a Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe exited our short positions in gold for a modest but useful profit when it broke out of its downtrend towards the end of October. It then broke sharply lower on heavy turnover in a move that looks capitulative, but afterwards turned and rose quite sharply over the past week. So the question now is “has it bottomed?” Although the answer to this question is “Yes, it looks like it has”, it also looks like it may back and fill for a little while to complete a base pattern before a sustained advance can get underway. COTs, particularly for silver, continue to give grounds for caution and warn that the current turn may be the B-wave trap of a A-B-C correction. We are aware of this danger and place stops accordingly to protect us from it.

What’s Around the Corner Now the U.S. Election’s Over / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: Investors bid up stocks prior to the presidential election on Tuesday, when President Barack Obama won his second term. Investor confidence was due to some uncertainty eliminated with the election, but the nervousness quickly resurfaced on Wednesday morning, impacting investor confidence; stocks plummeted on the realization that Obama still has many hurdles to overcome and the fact that the global economy, namely in Europe and China, may be prone to more weakness that will negatively impact investor confidence.
