Financial Crisis 2008-2009, The Seeds of the Credit Crunch Part 2 / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Akhil_Khanna

Continued from Part 1

Effects on Corporates

The corporates had taken on huge debts during the boom times to expand their capacities to meet the huge quantum of orders they were receiving. They had retained manpower at very high employee costs to meet their targets and offered huge incentives and bonuses to the employees. They were caught unawares with the sudden drop in orders. Their capacity utilization began to drop substantially. They started to go back on or reduce their commitments to purchase the goods being manufactured in Asia.

Goodbye to Stock Market Santa Rally? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew jobless claims unexpectedly rise. - The number of newly laid off workers filing claims for unemployment benefits unexpectedly rose last week as the recovery of the nation's battered labor market proceeds in fits and starts.

The Labor Department said Thursday that the number of new jobless claims rose to 480,000 last week, up 7,000 from the previous week. That was a worse performance than the decline to 465,000 that economists had expected.

Financial Markets 2010 Scenario's Building / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMy focus over the coming week is in completing the UK inflation analysis and forecast that is at the core of what happens to subsequent market trends as it directly feeds into interest rates, house prices, economy and stocks. Last years analysis and concluding forecasts for RPI and CPI proved remarkably accurate (30 Dec 2008 - UK CPI Inflation, RPI Deflation Forecast 2009) and hence the inflation road map resulted in the generation of many accurate projections for subsequent trends throughout 2009 and especially for UK savers that if they followed my cue of fixing savings at above 5% for 1 - 2 years would not have been burned by the subsequent crash in UK interest rates to pittance of as low as 0.1% on savings accounts, shame on you HBOS.

S&P500 Stock Market Consolidation Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleModels continue to support the outlook of restrained upward movement into Q1. The broad-based S&P 500 is encountering downward pressure from two directions. After 10 months of steady advances, the index has entered a significant resistance band that dates back eight years. The zone of 1070 to 1200 stalled both the steep bear market plunge in late 2001 and the held in-check the new bull market in early 2005.

Stock Market Investors Have Jumped Into Another Fire / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: EWI

The following article is an excerpt from Robert Prechter's Elliott Wave Theorist.

First they bought into the “stocks for the long run” case and got killed. Then they jumped on the commodity bandwagon and got killed. Many investors are buying back into these very same markets, but others are running to what they perceive as safe “yields” in the municipal bond market. So far this year, individual investors have “poured a record $55 billion” (Bloomberg, 11/12) into muni bond funds, with the pace running $2b. per week in August and September; many other investors are buying munis outright. These must be the people who tell us that they can’t live without “yield” and also cannot imagine their city, county or state government going bust. But as Conquer the Crash warned and as The Elliott Wave Theorist has reiterated, the muni bond market is heading for disaster.

By: Casey_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLouis James writes: At a recent Casey Research editors’ meeting, the team took on the question of whether the somewhat steady recovery since last February’s washout bottom in the broader markets had any of us thinking that the recession might be over. The gathering of minds included: Doug Casey, Managing Director David Galland, CEO Olivier Garret, Casey Chief Economist Bud Conrad, Senior Energy Analyst Marin Katusa (my counterpart on the energy side), myself heading the metals division, and several other editors.

Financial Markets Profit Opportunities and Wealth Destroyers in 2010 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Great Collapse. The U.S. economic and systemic solvency crises of the last two years are just precursors to a Great Collapse: a hyperinflationary great depression. Such will reflect a complete collapse in the purchasing power of the U.S. dollar, a collapse in the normal stream of U.S. commercial and economic activity, a collapse in the U.S. financial system as we know it, and a likely realignment of the U.S. political environment. The current U.S. financial markets, financial system and economy remain highly unstable and vulnerable to unexpected shocks. The Federal Reserve is dedicated to preventing deflation, to debasing the U.S. dollar. The results of those efforts are being seen in tentative selling pressures against the U.S. currency and in the rallying price of gold.” (emphasis added)

Stock Market At Mid Range..Some Leaders Breaking Lower... / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

But nothing is broken as those that are breaking can come right back up. It isn't great to see Apple Inc. (AAPL) lose the 50-day exponential moving average for the second time in short order. It lost it and surged back through with an eight point up day but that has now been largely lost, and we are again below on this massively important leader. It's only by a little more than a dollar (50's at 193.80) and it wouldn't take much for AAPL to recapture this critical level but it's still not great to see it go away once again. In bull markets that may be topping out, you look for small subtle signs that say there may be trouble ahead. AAPL losing the 50's is certainly at least a red flag that has to be respected.

ProShares UltraShort SPY SDS Recovery Rally Needs to Hurdle Prior Rally Peak / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Looking at the hourly chart on the ProShares UltraShort SPY (NYSE: SDS), the only thing we really know about the pattern is that the price structure has carved out what could be a double bottom low in December, which is juxtaposed against a series of declining rally peaks.

Stock Market Timers, FOMC A One Day Event / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

For Wednesday's FOMC announcement, the Rydex market timers were betting heavy that Bernanke and company would deliver. The Fed didn't disappoint as they continue to keep their foot on the easy money pedal. Unfortunately, the market did its best to frustrate the most, and the early morning rally fizzled intraday. The Rydex market timers have moved back to the sidelines.

Stock Market Another Nothing Day.. / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

And that's with the Feds saying to leave interest rates alone for a long time to come. No fear of rising interest rates to come for our economy. The market shrugged off the good news in a way that said it knew this is what was coming all along. Good news can't break us out these days and we had lots of it today. Excellent news on the housing front and on the inflation front this morning, and then the news from the Feds, but the market can not break through this 1115/1119 wall of china. The market tried one more push when the Fed offered chocolate to the market but apparently the market is allergic these days.

Stock Market S&P 500 Price Earnings Forecast 2010 to 2011 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2010

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe S&P 500 PE ratio is the primary measure used by many investors to value the stock market and assess S&P 500 trend. Historically, the S&P 500 PE ratio has a median of 15.7. As of September 30, 2009, the S&P PE ratio was 86 based on a closing price of 1057 and trailing annual earnings of the S&P 500 of $46.36. All numbers are from the Standard & Poor’s S&P 500 index reporting. Part of the reason the PE ratio is so high is the negative affect of earnings in the December 2008 and March 2009 quarters. After the recent market rally, what should investors expect for 2010?

Figure 1 is a daily chart of the S&P500 with the amount of assets in the Rydex bullish and leveraged funds versus the amount of assets in the leveraged and bearish funds. This data is hidden, but the ratio of bull to bear, which is depicted by the indicator in the lower panel, is 2 to 1. Since July, 2009, every time this ratio got above 2, it marked a short term top in the S&P500. These are noted by the maroon colored vertical bars.

Sorry Folks... Stock Market Consolidation Continues..Bears Hold The Top.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

I don't know how to say it any differently any more. I mean, you have to laugh. We hit the top. We get overbought. We sell off. We get to the bottom. We get oversold. We rise back up. Bulls defend 1085 S&P 500. Bears defend the 1110-1119 area on the S&P 500. An old story where the bulls and bears defend critical levels of resistance and support. Stocks are no different. A stock like Wynn Resorts (WYNN) up big yesterday but down a bit more than that today.

Stock Market Volatile Session Ends Lower / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The market had a volatile session today. They were down early, then up sharply in a steep snapback rally after the first hour that took the indices right up to retest those key overhead resistance levels. They couldn't break through again, pulled back in an orderly fashion for most of the rest of the session until late in the day when they accelerated to the downside. Only in the last 15 minutes did they snapback to pare the losses.
