Casino Capitalism - What’s ahead for China and the US / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: LewRockwell

Eric Margolis writes: My father, a New York financier, used to call dubious stocks or bonds, “Chinese paper.” Last week, we saw a blizzard of Chinese paper, both in China and around the world.

As manager of a sizeable investment portfolio (an unwelcome second job from my main work, journalism), I watched last week’s near death experience on world markets with a mixture of cynicism and alarm.

Why Monday’s Stock Market Mayhem Was No Surprise / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Investment_U

Anthony Summers writes: After a week of steady declines, investors woke up Monday morning to a huge sell-off as both the S&P and Dow dropped hugely in the early minutes of trading.

The Dow plummeted nearly 4% before seeing its largest intraday point swing ever. The spread between the high and low of the day? An astonishing 1,089 points.

The Stocks You Should Be Buying After the Market Drop / Companies / Investing 2015

By: Investment_U

Sean Brodrick writes: If you’re looking for bargains after Monday’s market sell-off, take a look at cybersecurity. Few industries got sold as hard - and yet it has the best growth prospects.

That’s due to a worldwide surge in hacking from criminals and terrorists. After all, when it’s so easy to be a hacker and get away with it, anyone who wants to will be a hacker.

Don't Let 'The Glidepath Illusion' Ruin Your Retirement / Personal_Finance / Pensions & Retirement

By: DailyWealth

Dan Ferris writes: The traditional notion of retirement says you should take bigger risks in the stock market when you're young.

You have more time to make up for losses than when you're older. As you age, you should take less and less risk, so you won't lose your retirement money... so the conventional wisdom goes.

Stock Market New Range?.....Please Say It Isn't So / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

Is everyone's nightmare about to realize yet again? Unfortunately, that may be the case. We may have seen the elevator move down one flight after nearly a year of being stuck on the same floor. The repair man finally got to work, but it seems he left the building a bit too soon. He thought he fixed the problem, but after a quick fix it didn't hold. We're possibly on, yet, another broken elevator to nowhere. The old boring-to-nowhere range was understood to be at 2134 down to 2040. Now the new range may be S&P 50 1900, or thereabouts, to 2040.

Gold Shares Lows are Near / Commodities / Gold and Silver Stocks 2015

By: Aden_Forecast

As most of you know, many mining companies have fallen by over 90%. The HUI Gold Bugs index has fallen 83% since its 2011 peak in the second longest bear market in gold shares on record. It's fallen twice as much as gold's bear market loss of 43%.

But looking at the next two charts, both are saying the lows may already be in.

How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love Market Fluctuations / InvestorEducation / Trader Psychology

By: John_Mauldin

Patrick Cox: Most of you know that my day job involves finding disruptive technologies for investors. Most of you also know that the stock market has recently taken a southward plunge.

When I was younger, I always wondered why big fluctuations in markets seemed to cause so many people so much anxiety and consternation. It’s not as if we don’t know that, historically, markets have always displayed big swings. Understanding this, it always seemed clear to me that a rational individual would not invest money in equities if that money might be needed in the short run.

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

The latest bear market has arrived and the Fed will raise the fed funds rate in September. There. It is written.

The conventional ‘bear market’ assumes two things. First, the major stock indices fall 20% from their recent highs. Two, there is a market. Both of these adages are now false in the new era.

Fed’s Stock Market Levitation is Failing / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

The US stock markets just suffered an extraordinary plunge, shocking traders out of their complacency psychosis.  This cast the foundational premise behind recent years’ incredible stock-market levitation into serious doubt.  Traders are finally starting to question whether central banks can indeed manipulate stock markets higher indefinitely.  Any wavering in this faith has very bearish implications for stock prices.

Less than two weeks ago, the US’s flagship S&P 500 stock index (SPX) was up above 2100.  It finished August’s middle trading day just 1.3% below the latest record highs from late May.  At the time, the Wall Street analysts were overwhelmingly bullish and saw nothing but clear sailing ahead.  Predictions for the SPX ending this year above 2250 were ubiquitous, and retail investors were urged to aggressively buy stocks.

The Eight Energy Systems Driving The Stock Market Rout / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Dan_Amerman

The energy systems which drove the global stock market rout have been building for months and years, and by the spring of this year, the danger flags were clearly flying. Indeed, as I wrote in May of 2015 in an analysis titled "A Financial "Perfect Storm" May Be Brewing" (link here):

"In the financial world at this very moment, we have eight different "weather systems" that are all developing in real time.

... if several of the more powerful components were to converge – and reinforce each other – then we could very rapidly reach the point of greatest financial instability that the world has seen since 2008."

By: Alasdair_Macleod

While gold consolidated its recent gains, silver was sold down this week along with other metals and energy. The whole commodity complex suffered badly in the stock-market fall-out, before a sharp bear-squeeze across commodity markets pushed silver, copper and oil sharply higher yesterday (Thursday). Silver is now down 6.8% on the year and gold 5%. Prices were slightly firmer this morning in Asian trade, before the European opening.

Is this it for U.S. Dollar Bulls? / Currencies / US Dollar

By: Ashraf_Laidi

US dollar bulls couldn't have asked for a better scenario -- Just as the USD index (basket of 6 currencies largely weighed vs EUR) was about to test a 3-month trendline support, the currency recovers. And just as EURUSD had broken above its 200-DMA for the first time in 13 months and above its 55-WMA for the first time in 12 months in a matter of 4 days, the single currency crashes back below these key levels later in the same week. But CAD, AUD, NZD and NOK have all outperformed USD thanks to a broad bounce in energy.

U.S. Economic Fundamentals 'Look Good' - Bullard of St. Louis Fed / Economics / US Economy

By: Bloomberg

St. Louis Federal Reserve President James Bullard spoke with Bloomberg's Brendan Greeley, Michael McKee and Tom Keene from the Jackson Hole economic symposium. He spoke about the outlook for monetary policy, the U.S. economy and recent market volatility. 

Bullard said that while world financial markets are volatile, U.S. fundamentals are good: "I'm not denying it's a volatile period. But let me say this. U.S. fundamentals look good….The key question for the committee, and no decisions have been made here, but the key question for the committee is would you want to change the outlook based on the volatility that we've seen over the last 10 days? And I think the answer is going to be not very much."

Stock Market Margin Calls Mount / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

I have been busy aligning the Wave structures among the various Indexes that we are following. Starting with the SPX, I believe that we are seeing a larger degree wave structure on the decline than on the way up. Because SPX has broken the 4-year trendline, it is possible that Primary Wave [1] or [A] may reach its target at 1650. Diamond and Broadening Top formations usually indicate targets for Wave (C) or (3). In this case there is not enough time for a fifth Intermediate Wave, I am becoming more certain that we will see an (A)-(B)-(C) Wave of Primary Wave [A] ending next week. After a 2-3 week retracement we may see a 5-Wave Primary [C] of Cycle Wave I ending in March, 2016.

Economics of a Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Crash

By: Alasdair_Macleod

This month has seen something that happens not very often: it appears to be the early stages of a global stock market crash. For the moment investors are in shock, seeking reassurance and keenly intent on preserving their diminishing assets, instead of reflecting on the broader economic reasons behind it. To mainstream financial commentators, blame for a crash is always placed on remote factors, such as China’s financial crisis, and has little to do with events closer to home. Analysis of this sort is selective and badly misplaced. The purpose of this article is to provide an overview of the economic background to today’s markets as well as the likely consequences.
