A Warning Shot For Investors? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Sy_Harding

Many important global stock markets, including China, Brazil, India and Hong Kong, have been in fairly significant corrections since November, down between 12% and 17%. Their major concerns have been rising inflation and the resulting monetary tightening by their central banks to combat the inflationary pressures.

China Risks and Investor Opportunities / Stock-Markets / China Economy

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpinion is currently divided on the world’s second largest economy.

On one hand of the spectrum, the bears believe that China is a train-wreck and that its economic growth is unsustainable. These sceptics love to highlight the property bubble in China and they never miss the opportunity to mention the fact that fixed asset investment accounts for a disproportionately large chunk of the Chinese economy.  According to the bearish camp, China’s economy is not real; rather, its breakneck economic growth is centrally planned by Beijing. Furthermore, the bears argue that China’s vast foreign exchange reserves are meaningless and that they will be used up in dealing with the aftermath of the Chinese real estate bust.

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe head into Thursday’s trading session with an extended market that now has two negative fundamental factors to focus on; the Middle East and rapidly rising oil prices.

Stocks Bear Market Beginnings, There Goes the First Sector / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBear markets begin when something fundamental breaks. Usually the sector initially affected will roll over before the general market and tends to be a warning sign of what lies ahead.

The last bear market was triggered when the credit bubble created by Greenspan's foolish monetary policy burst. It was exacerbated by Bernanke's foolish attempt to debase the currency and reflate the bubble. All he succeeded in doing was to inflate oil to $147, which put the finishing touches on an already crumbling economy.

What the Looming Inflation Tsunami Means for the U.S. Housing Market and Commodities / Stock-Markets / Inflation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: A few weeks ago, Money Morning Contributing Editor Martin Hutchinson warned readers about the looming inflation tsunami threatening the United States.

Easy money policies like those of the U.S. Federal Reserve and other central banks have helped raise prices in emerging markets, as well as the United States, and sent the commodities sector surging.

Stock Market Downside Follow Through! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices started the day with a little bit of a bounce to the upside, and then rolled over immediately. At that point they spent the rest of the morning dropping. By midday they reached their session lows, and in the early afternoon they started to bounce back. That lasted until about 45 minutes to go, when they backed off again to increase the losses.

Rough Few Days For The Stock Market Bulls.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

Markets tend to catch the masses off guard. It's an old story with the stock market. The bull-bear spread has stayed quite high, and actually increasing in the number of bulls, and decreasing in the number of bears over the past few weeks. More and more are getting bullish which explains how the weekly charts got so extremely overbought, especially on the S&P 500 and Dow. High-70 readings on the Dow, and mid-70 readings on the SPX said it was time to reign it in some.

Time To Buy Stocks In The Face Of Fear? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: David_Grandey

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe MARKETS HATE UNCERTAINTY and that’s where we are at currently.

That uncertainty can be summed up in a few words MID-EAST, from Libya to Bahrain and then some is what’s creating the uncertainty. Should Libya fall then some of the uncertainty will with it. We’ve all seen it before once some sort of certainty comes back into the markets the futures will be up big in after hours markets (think 1991 Iraq). When Libya’s Saturday Night Live dictator falls (and how), sure it could create a knee jerk down on the news event but keep in mind fast that a level of uncertainty will have diminished too.

Federal Stimulus Should Keep Stock Market Bulls Happy / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Stocks rose fitfully last week in a typically strange, exciting, exasperating options-expiration week. The Dow Jones Industrial Average, Standard & Poor's 500 Index and the Nasdaq Composite Index all ended roughly 1% higher, while the Russell 2000 small-caps rose 1.5%

Treasurys enjoyed their firmest session of the past month in part due to an unexpected rise in unemployment claims. Bonds love misery because it suggests that inflation -- their arch enemy -- will remain under control. Inflation will be a problem as long as home prices retreat, jobs are scarce and wage hikes are a far-off dream.

Secular Stock Market Insights, Stay Out of the ROOM / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of my favorite analysts is Ed Easterling of Crestmont Research. We used to get together a whole lot more when he lived in Dallas, but he has since moved to the wilds of Oregon. Ed’s first book, Unexpected Returns, is a classic work that I think is a must-read for all stock market investors.

And now he favors us with yet another book, called Probable Outcomes: Secular Stock Market Insights, in which he takes on the mostly silly research, done by so many analysts, that purports to show what an investor can expect to make from his retirement portfolio over time. I can’t tell you how disastrous this simplistic analysis can be for retirees.

Picture of the Two Latest Cyclical Stocks Bull Markets and Where the Current One is Headed / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jas_Jain

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US "stock market" is but a reflection of the US econo-political system firmly in control of the corporate crooks that put the top powers (Presidency and the Chairmanship of the Federal Reserve) in hands of those who would not shy from policies that result in evil economic and financial deeds. No other nation is the cause of America's economic problems. They are all homemade. The reason Americans are angry and anxious about the future is that evildoers, driven by desperation, have led the US economy and there is no change in sight. Obama was lying when he promised change.

Stock Market Cycles Looking for a Peak! / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Jim_Curry

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the Summer of 2010, the various U.S. stock indices have garnered an impressive run, pushing up some 32% from our last major bottom with the 9 and 18-month cycles.

The current upward move was anticipated, with the 180-day (i.e., 9-month) cycle confirming various upside targets along the way. In terms of cyclic price projections, back in September this 180-day cycle had confirmed an initial upside target to the 1187.09 - 1226.23 region for the SPX, which was satisfied on 10/21/10.

Stock Market Rapidly Approaching Long-term Resistance....... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

What a great ride this has been for us. Fun for sure. Bigger picture, as long as printing press Ben is active, the fun should last a lot longer. That doesn't mean the market won't take some time out to pause and sell down some. There are a plethora of reasons to expect a sell off some time soon. The three primary ones are major resistance on the Nasdaq (chart included) at 2861. Add strong resistance on the transports and small caps (charts also included), and you have a lot of sectors close to major resistance. The second reason is overbought daily charts, and finally, you have confirming, very overbought, weekly charts on the major indexes. RSI's in the upper 70's on the Dow and S&P 500 on those weekly charts. Stochastic's a hair under 100. It doesn't go higher than 100.
