China’s Economy Rocks! Ignore the Naysayers / Stock-Markets / China Stocks

By: Tony_Sagami

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you read the business news or watch CNBC, you’ve been bombarded with a steady stream of experts warning you about China. Warning you about the Chinese stock market, warning you about the Chinese real estate bubble, warning you about the Chinese economy.

The majority of those China worrywarts have been crying “wolf” for a long, long time. Like Samuel Clemens said, “the reports of my death have been greatly exaggerated” and that is certainly true of the Chinese economy.

SP500 Pierces, Bonds Rally, Dollars Fall Out the Window / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s been a wild ride the past few days OptionsX, Obama and FOMC comments.  Seems like everyone is waiting to see what the market is going to do going forward at this pivotal point…

Since the market topped in April and has since been trading sideways in this rather large range, everyone has small positions at work but waiting for a decisive move before fully committing to one side.  There could be a few opportunities in the coming days using bonds, the dollar and the SP500 if all goes well which I explain below.

Stock Market S&P Support at 1131 Holding For Now... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

And that's about all one can say. It is expected that this level would hold the first test as the bulls fought long and hard to take it out. Unfortunately for the bulls, it was taken out at the same moment the market got very overbought on those daily oscillators across the board. The goal now for the bulls is to try and hold this level, or close to it for a while, until those longer-term daily oscillators can unwind enough to allow for further market upside. We opened up pretty flat today, but then the move down began. We gradually moved down to 1131. Hit it a few times, but the bulls found a way to hold on and allow it to move higher. Nothing great back up. Nothing to celebrate, but you have to like it when the bulls defend their turf.

Scared Stupid, What Is Next For Stock Prices / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Bob_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst I will rant about my pet peeve  and then I will follow up on the current cyclical structure in the stock market.
 
Financial natural selection  
The bears are being cut to pieces  as stop after stop is hit, not only that but each time we surge a little higher, new pressure points prod the ones without stops to end the pain and cover as well.  Fear drives out greed in the bears and greed drives out fear in the bulls.

Stock Markets Ripe for a Setback as Fed Warms Up Money Printing Presses / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I warned yesterday, the US equity market had overdone its expectations that the Fed where going to fire up the printing press & embark on QE2 with immediate effect. Hence it had set itself up for a fall and was ripe for a setback on the resulting disappointment.

The culprit for the early dip in European stocks this morning was to be the execution of a 1.5 bn euro programme order to sell European stocks!

Stock Market Sector Strength Indicates Returning Confidence / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

Analysts and economists often refer to the strength or weakness in certain key industrial groups as evidence of a recovering or declining economy. During the recovery phase of a typical business cycle, there is usually greater buying emphasis on industry sectors that reflect a more optimistic stance. This wave of confidence can shift short-term to a more defensive approach.

Stock Market Confusion? S&P 500 bullish, VIX bearish? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBelow is a long term view of the VIX (Volatility Index).Note that the VIX has been below its September inverted support line for the past 4 days while the S&P has been above its support with a triple top upside breakout yesterday.

Yesterday, the S&P breakout was bullish, but the VIX falling below both of its inverted supports at labels 3 and 4 was bearish.

Stock Market Indices Follow Through on Last Week's Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices started the week off with a bang and followed through brilliantly on last week's rally, gapping up from the get-go and exploding early on short covering. They consolidated mid-day, and then ran again hard in the afternoon, as the Nasda 100 had two rallies of more than 20 points during the session and the S&P 500 had two rallies of more than 12 points. Only a last 5-minute pullback prevented them from closing on the highs for the day.

Stock Market Bulls Clear 1131 S&P 500... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

It seemed as if it would never happen, but the bulls refused to let thing get away from them as the bears put up their front at that critical resistance level. Sure we sold off many times from 1131, but never hard and never for long. That was the key. The bears needed to throw everything they had at holding off 1131, but beyond that they simply could not sell this market off in any big way that put the bulls on notice that the bears weren't going to ever let it take place. Shallow pullbacks was all they could put together.

Monday Stock Market Movement - Mind the (Wealth) Gap! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCongratulations to 440,000 of us!
That’s how many people became Millionaires in the past 12 months (ending in June).  According to a new survey from Phoenix Marketing International’s Affluent Market Practice, the number of American households with investible assets of $1 million or more rose 8% in the 12 months ended in June. The survey says there now are 5.55 million U.S. households with investible assets of $1 million or more. That follows two years of declines and brings the Millionaire count back to 2006 levels. Of course, that is still below the peak of 5.97 million in 2007 and the current growth rate is well below pre-financial crisis levels, when the Millionaire population increased as much as 35% a year.

Stocks Advance But Irish Bond Spreads Hit Fresh Highs on Debt Crisis / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStocks Advance but Irish Bond Spreads Hit Fresh HighsThe big story Friday related to a research report by Barclays Bank (actually published Thursday morning) stating that Ireland MAY require external aid If unexpected banking losses emerged or economic conditions deteriorated further. This assertion was picked up in the most tabloid fashion imaginable by the Irish Independent in a clear case of scare mongering in what smelt of a Fox News make the facts fit the underlying editorial line (i.e. to heap more pressure on the FF / Green’s coalition) and then amplified in a game of worldwide financial Chinese whispers that went viral.

Stock Market SP500 Options Expiry Overnight Shakeout, What’s Next? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI think it’s safe to say that everyone knows the markets are manipulated... but during options expiry week we tend to see prices move beyond key resistance and support levels during times of light volume which triggers/shakes traders out of their positions.

Trading during low volume sessions Pre/Post holidays for swing traders or between 11:30am – 3:00pm ET for day traders tends have increased volatility and false breakouts. This happens because the market markets for individual stocks can slowly walk the prices up and down beyond short term support and resistance levels simply because there is a lack of participation in the market.

Stock Market Trend, the Gold-Plated Economy / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Peter_Navarro

The stock market continues to show technical improvement – even as the economy continues to exhibit fundamental deterioration. On the technical front, Market Edge has its Strength Indices showing improvement while its Momentum Index remains very strong. At the same time, 81 of the 91 Industry Groups followed by Market Edge are rated either strong or improving. This all adds up to a stock market that continues to inch up on weak volume.

Stock Market Caught in a Boundary Cycle / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe market at the moment is going through a “boundary cycle”. Believe it or not the range the Dow Transports is caught in is the range that was created by the flash crash of May 6th.  (Dow 30: 10,800 – 9800). As I said immediately after this event it would take a while for the technical position of the market to repair itself and this has proven to be the case. Nothing coming from the SEC has proved that they have managed to deal successfully with the issue of Over The Counter High Frequency Quant Trading and until they do so we will continue to observe outright manipulation of individual equity and index positions. Modern market confidence will not be set on solid ground until HFQT is regulated or banned.

SPX Revisits Old Low as VIX Makes Primary Cycle Low / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFDIC Friday back on the job. - The FDIC Failed Bank List announced six new banks closure this week. Only three were acquired by another bank. This week’s failures cost the agency’s deposit- insurance fund $347.6 million.

Shadow Bank Liabilities Plunge By $700 Billion In Q2, $2.1 Trillion Year To Date - (ZeroHedge) Continuing the analysis of today's Z.1 report, we next focus on recent developments in the shadow banking system. And it's a bloodbath: total shadow bank liabilities dropped by $680 billion in Q2, and a massive $2.1 trillion YTD. If one wonders why Ben Bernanke (yes, it's technically TurboTim) continues to print trillions and trillions of debt, and it is still doing nothing (yet) to stimulate the system, here is your answer.

Stock Market Resilient Indices Close Slightly Ahead / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices had a narrowly positive session. They opened with a big gap up to new highs, pulled back very sharply on negative economic news, but then bounced around, bounced back, and then backed and filled all day, failing to break out above or below support or resistance intraday.

Net of the day, the Dow was up just 13.02 at 10,607.85. The S&P 500 was up 93 cents at 1125.59. The Nasdaq 100, however, was up 7.72 at 1955.83.

Stock Market Failure At S&P 500 1131...Overall Action Is Bullish... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

The futures were rocking higher last night. Upon waking this morning those futures held very well, and it looked as though 1131 was going to be left behind once the market opened. The bears had other ideas. The futures slowly started to gather some momentum back down on no news. The bears piling in to knock it down. By the time the market opened, things were green, but well off the highs. That didn't stop the bulls from making one more move back towards that elusive level as the S&P 500 touched 1131.47.
