Stock Market May Require Further Consolidation Before Breaking to New Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVery Long-term trend – The continuing strength in the indices is causing me to question whether we are in a secular bear market or two consecutive bull/bear cycles.  In any case, the very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep and prolonged decline into 2014-15.

Long-term trend - In March 2009, the SPX began an upward move in the form of a bull market.  Cycles and P&F projections point to a continuation of this trend for several more months.

S&P500, Crude Oil, and Gold Reliant on U.S. Dollar Price Action / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article “The week that was” left many investors running for the exits on Monday and Tuesday as prices in the equity, energy, and precious metals markets plunged. The U.S. Dollar index futures tried to work their way out of a descending channel, but came up unsuccessful. The U.S. Dollar index rallied in several morning sessions, but usually was met with heavy selling later in the day which either muted gains or pushed the dollar index lower. The other notable development this week was some Fed drivel which solidified the Central Bank’s continued efforts to devalue the U.S. currency and hold short term interest rates hostage. In addition, it seems more likely with every press release from a Fed Governor that Quantitative Easing II will expire in June and Quantitative Easing III will not be pursued unless economic conditions worsen.

Stock Market Still In The Handle... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

The question is will it stay that way. The Nasdaq has made a clear handle bottom at yesterday's gap down low reversal at 2733. The top is clear at 2815. An 82-point range which makes sense. Three percent gives the market plenty of room to drive everyone nuts. Just enough room to head fake everyone on an almost daily basis. Handles are classic for making you think one thing is happening, but it doesn't. You can be so sure about what's next only to discover you were totally wrong about your thinking process. The more you play in a handle the more you lose. Very few can do it just right. The deeper problem with handles is that you never know just how long they are going to last. There is no historical reference for how long it will drag on. It could be just a few weeks, such as we have just experienced, or it can be months, sometimes many many months. No fun for sure.

Fed Reckoning Day Realities for Investor Pain and Gains / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“In this light, the Fed’s action is especially meretricious. If it weren’t in such a hurry to juice the stock market and thereby keep the illusion of recovery going, it might have considered extending the regulatory sequester on bank capital for a few more quarters or even years thereby preserving a shield for the taxpayers until it has been demonstrated by the passage of time, not by the passing of phony stress tests, that the American banking system is truly out of the woods.

SPX Stock Market Correction Looms, Buying Opportunity? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStock bull markets don’t rally higher in a nice linear fashion.  Their advance is much more chaotic, flowing and ebbing.  Two steps forward are inevitably followed by one step back.  Today the US stock markets, despite their recent selloff in early March, still look to be in this correction mode.  These ebbings present stock traders with awesome buying opportunities, the best ever seen within ongoing bulls.

The Financial Sector Will Have a Major Impact on the SP 500 / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Marty_Chenard

Regardless of whether a compromise is reached over the approaching lockdown of the United States ceiling and the raising of the debt, this impasse has momentous significance for holders of gold (SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)) and silver (iShares Silver Trust (SLV)). The serious weaknesses of our economic structure is exposing it as a paper tiger. Instead of seeking fiscal sanity, the inability of our leaders to agree on even the smallest of issues is reminiscent of the Roman Empire dealing out bread and circus to the masses when Rome could no longer afford the good times and the games.

How Foreign Central Banks Could End the U.S. Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: William McChesney Martin Jr., the revered former head of the U.S. Federal Reserve, is remembered for many things - including an unprecedented term as chairman that lasted from March 1951 to January 1970.

But Martin is perhaps best remembered for the central-banking aphorism that says that the Fed's most important job is "to take away the punch bowl just as the party gets going." (See accompanying graphic below.)

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"I know that most men, including those at ease with problems of the greatest complexity, can seldom accept even the simplest and most obvious truth if it be such as would oblige them to admit the falsity of conclusions which they have delighted in explaining to colleagues, which they have proudly taught to others, and which they have woven, thread by thread, into the fabric of their lives." ~ Tolstoy

Can U.S. Dollar Weakness Mean Stock Market Weakness? / Stock-Markets / US Dollar

By: Jason_Kaspar

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Are there any dollar bulls left? Inflationists across the web are crying ‘victory’ as the dollar sinks and certain asset prices (especially oil prices, food prices, and the gold price) mushroom higher. To the level headed, you should exercise extreme caution against assumed fixed correlations like “weak dollar” means “asset price increases.” Correlations can quickly change.

Stock Market Both Sides Holding Where They Have To... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

The bulls were rocking. Nasdaq 2808 looked to be a slam dunk in terms of breaking through. Time after time the bulls tried and time after time the bears said not now. The gap is too tough for you. The bulls finally did go away. The bears were on deck and made their move. Down we went. It was pretty hard and pretty fast. One moment we're trying to get through 2808, and the next moment you're watching the bulls trying to defend the 50-day exponential moving average at 2738 Nasdaq. A fast seventy-point reversal for sure. Suddenly it looked as if this critical support level was going to get taken out with force. Not to be the case. Not yet anyway.

Investors Keeping Capital in an Economic Depression / Stock-Markets / Investing 2011

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDoug Casey, The Casey Report writes: Nothing is cheap in today’s investment world. Because of the trillions of currency units that governments all over the world have created – and are continuing to create – financial assets are grossly overpriced. Stocks, bonds, property, commodities and cash are no bargains. Meanwhile, real wages are slipping rapidly among those who are working, and a large portion of the population is unemployed or underemployed.

Stocks Cheap? Shiller's Cyclically Adjusted PE Ratio Approaching Peak Valuations / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Trader_Mark

Most of the commentary in regards to the value of stocks looks at the 1 year trailing or forward PE ratio, and applies some sort of premium or discount to that due to interest rates.  Indeed with estimated earnings in the mid $90s on the S&P 500 and record low interest rates the market looks relatively 'cheap' at around 13x end of year 2011 estimates.  As always please understand the market is substantially more expensive than the raw numbers show as many companies take numerous exemptions for 'one time' expenses such as options expensing - which are of course not one time.... but Wall Street still is happy to exclude these very real costs in the game of "wink wink".

Canada: Investing in the World's Safest Economy Can Put Profits in Your Pocket / Stock-Markets / Canadian Stock Market

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: When a March 25 "no-confidence" vote toppled the government of Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, it also set the stage for a new general election.

This May 2 election will be Canada's third in five years and fourth in seven years. In light of the civil unrest in the Middle East/North Africa (MENA) region - not to mention the financial problems that continue to plague Europe - it would be understandable if global investors added Canada to the "do not invest" list.

Stock Market Testing The Lower End... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

We test the high end of the range and we test the low end of the range. Back and forth with now another effort by the bears to bring things down to the lower end of the range. The bulls have tried several times to get the job done, but they have been unable to do so. Now the bears will get their chance. It would actually be good if the bears would succeed a little bit here, because it would ramp up some fear short-term and get that bull-bear spread down below 40% for starters. I don't like seeing there spread above 40%. Handles such as we're in now often serve to remove some of the froth in the market as more and more folks hear about the end of the bull market because we've stopped going up for a while. The longer we handle, or break down some, the more you'll get people thinking another bear market is upon us, which is not a bad thing for the bulls. Let's get this number down to 30%, or lower, in the coming weeks, and then I'll feel much better about things.

Despite the terrible economic performance of the past ten years (both in terms of the markets and the general economy), equity valuations are now approaching the second largest bubble in United States history, surpassed only by the technology bubble. Both the cause and the potential ramifications of this development are astounding.

Option Flexibility Allows Traders To Adjust Positions As Stock Market Changes / Stock-Markets / Options & Warrants

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“I’ve been hanging onto nothing when nothing could be worse” Heaven When We’re Home The Wailin’ Jennys

As an options trader, I continue to be impressed by the wide variety of choices available to modify a trade that is not quite going the way I initially predicted. This approach may be a bit unfamiliar to the trader whose experience has been primarily with trading stocks. The choices for a stock trader are really only two: open or close a position.
