Can the Banks Toxic Asset Problem be Fixed So Easily? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeithner and the Banks - What is one of the major purposes for removing the toxic assets from the banking system? To get banks to start lending , so companies can borrow to keep their operations going, for consumers to start borrowing so they can spend, for mortgage rates to drop so housing sales can start up again ... Everything needed for the economy to start a turn around so that the stock market can get out of this Bear market.

Protect Your Wealth from the Secular Stocks Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlmost exactly six months ago, I wrote in these pages to deliver you a message of warning.  In a special edition of Money and Markets * on September 22, 2008, I warned you NOT to expect a quick end to this epic bear market in stocks. I also outlined several steps that could help you defend and possibly even grow your wealth in this turbulent market.

The reason for my warning last September is one and the same with my biggest concern today … we remain locked in a punishing, long-term, secular bear market, and I'm concerned your investments may not be fully prepared to weather this financial storm.

Stocks Stealth Bull Market Carpet Bombs the Bears / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStocks Stealth Bull Market Update 2- The stealth bull market in a not quite as stealthy manner as I would have liked decided to carpet bomb the bears with a powerful 500 point up thrust that has left many speculators and analysts that are not participating in the rally stunned into inaction as the smart investors continued to accumulate in the face of overwhelming majority of frightened investors to scared to participate in the face of continuing overwhelming bearish data and mis-information most notably evident in the consensus that stock prices will revert to below the mean in terms of corporate earnings.

Stocks Bear Market Respite and Reflation Trade Won't Push Gold Past $1,000 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Jordan_Roy_Byrne

In the wake of the Fed's announced record monetization some gold bugs remarked about the significance of the date and decision. Moreover, the airwaves were littered with commodity bulls (not the familiar faces). There were a few non-gold bug analysts on live television showing currency from Zimbabwe and relating the Fed decision to what has transpired in Zimbabwe. Hyperbole aside, fed policy of currency debasement and inflation of the money supply is hardly anything new. News is important in that it highlights and reinforces trends. It doesn't create them.

Spectacular Session for the Stock Market Bulls / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

It was a fantastic and huge session to start the week, as the indices gapped up big, ran hard in the morning, consolidated mid-day, tried to rollover but held support, and then exploded again in the afternoon as the shorts were squeezed right into the close in a spectacular session.

Stock Market Rally March Madness / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor years our local retailers have run advertising tagged on the theme of ‘March Madness', implying they have cut prices drastically due to an uncontrollable psychological condition. Fitting the stock market into this context at present is of course a synch, with prices getting marked down all over the place due to an uncontrollable psychological condition, better know as a panic. And it just so happens that in studying history, March has been a time of conspicuous events in a biblical sense (important events), with the other more recent example being the manic top in tech stocks seen in the year 2000.

Stock Market Spring Rally Ahead of Summer Lows Retest / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we race toward the close of another (negative) quarter, spirits are getting a lift from the fact that Spring has sprung and the markets have put on a rally, making March statements (for now) look a bit brighter than many of the past six months. The focus of Wall Street is not on the economy, but the circus that is Washington. (Warning: political comment!) It is funny to see Congress chastise executives for paying bonuses then turn around and ask for political contributions from the same group – hypocrisy at its best!

Stock Market Futures Bounce Sharply Higher / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePreliminary details of U.S. Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner 's (aka the one trillion Dollar man) plans have prompted a strong session in equities overnight with the Dow futures currently up 195 and Europe looking chirpy. Now I may sound like a worn out old 45 but don't believe the hype. The markets are as ever buying the rumour and will sell the fact(s).

Economic Crisis, No country is immune from the gloom / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Regent_Markets

After a volatile 5 days, world stock markets just managed to close last 5 days in the black. It was a week of two halves with the good work from the start of the week being undone in the second half as traders slipped into reverse gear on Thursday and Friday. At least markets managed to hold the gains from the previous week which in the context of the bear market is no mean feat.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment Indicator Not a Factor / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week investor sentiment is neutral. The bearish sentiment (i.e., bull signal) of the past three weeks has dissipated. Going forward, equities will need to rely upon their own merits to score gains. In other words, as bears have turned into bulls, sentiment will be less of a factor in any price appreciation.

Stock Market Indices Witness Strong Selling / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnd this is because the Sp and Dow failed at their 50's and the bulls couldn't stop the same old which has been to fall from those 50 day tests. The Nas and Ndx cleared it but now the Nas is slightly below. Nothing terrible but a few points below and it's not great to see similar behavior as we have seen for this entire bear market. Get to the 50's with some indexes clearing the 50's and then things just fall apart. The bulls need to take a stronger stand than this. The rally so far has been on excellent internals and this has kept the rally going but it's time for the bulls to step up here or we're headed right back down.

Stock Market Potential for Continuing Counter Trend Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Down! The very-long-term cycles have taken over and if they make their lows when expected, the bear market which started in October 2007 should continue until 2012-2014. This would imply that much lower prices lie ahead.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The index may have started a counter-trend rally which has the potential of extending itself in a bumpy ride for several more weeks if it can overcome the resistance which lies directly overhead.

Global Stock Markets Enter Extended Bear Markets, Reflation Ain't Going to Work / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in October when that stimulus package was being discussed I wrote a couple of articles, which were posted here, stating that it “Ain't Gonna Work.” This past Wednesday the Fed announced their latest intentions with a plan to buy $300 billion in long-term Treasuries and $750 billion of mortgage-backed securities. I'm now beginning to wonder if the powers that be are really in their minds trying to “fix” things or if they are actually trying to destroy the dollar, the free markets and perhaps even the nation.

Financial Markets Analysis - Fed Adopts Quantitative Inflation / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big story of the week was the U.S. Fed's head long fling over the cliff into Quantitative Easing by printing more than $1 trillion (electronically) , this is on top of the $800 billion already printed on the sly as the Fed buys toxic junk such as the weeks announcement of buying $1.25 trillion of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage backed securities, as well as other junk bonds, on top of $300 billion of US Government bonds to help finance the ever growing budget deficit. The implications of this extra supply of dollars is inflationary that devalues the value of all dollars. I have already warned indepth of the consequences of Quantitative Inflation so won't repeat it here.

More Weakness Likely for Stock Market S&P 500 Index / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe S&P 500 had an interesting week. In the aftermath of the FOMC announcement on Wednesday, the SPX climbed to 803.24 to make new recovery highs off of the March low. However, let¹s notice that the high for the week failed to penetrate significant resistance represented by the declining 10-week moving average and the Jan-Mar down trendline, and, in fact, reversed to the downside to close the week at 768.54.

Stock Market Indices Extend Losses / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The market suffered another decline today, as we expected, although the day started out differently. The indices went higher at the opening, and reached the session highs within the first 15 minutes on the NDX. But the SPX did not keep pace and barely made it higher, and then they both turned lower. They went down steadily and sharply for the next few hours until about an hour to go when they staged a snapback rally that reached right back up test resistance at the earlier breakdown points, getting up to 1195 NDX and 776 SPX. But they pulled back in the last 20 minutes to add to the losses.
