Green Shoots of Stock Market and Economic Recovery? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs That Recovery We See?
Those Wild and Crazy Analysts
The Shadow Inventory of Homes
Commercial Real Estate Starts a Long, Slow Slide
P/E Ratios Go Negative!
The Effect of Earnings Surprises
Corporate Earnings and Recovery in Recessions
The Implosion in Social Security

The market, we keep hearing and reading, is telling us that there is recovery around the corner. And pundits point to data that seems to suggest the worst is behind us. The leading economic indicators, while still down significantly, seem to be in the process of bottoming. There is a large amount of stimulus in the pipeline. Mark-to-market has been modified. Housing seems to be finding a bottom, if you look at the rise in sales from January. And so on.

Stocks Close the Week with a Bang / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices ended the week with a bang in a huge up-session Thursday ahead of the holiday weekend. The day started out with a big gap up as the indices exploded on a better-than-expected earnings pre-announcement from Wells Fargo (WFC) which sent the financial sector surging 15.5%, and which induced buying in the broader market as all three major indices were able to log their best single session percentage gain in two weeks and close at their session highs.

By: Hans_Wagner

Postive Divergence a NON-Confirmation of Secular Stocks Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteven Vincent writes: The DJTA did not confirm the DJIA move below 2002 lows.Much has been written about the Dow Theory confirmation of a continuation of a perceived Secular Bear Market. When the Dow Transports Index violated its November '08 lows it is held to have confirmed the INDU's move to new bear market low and thus validated the hypothesis that the markets had entered a Secular Bear Market and that the existing downtrend would continue.

Stock Market Bounce, The Suitcase Farmer / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month in Panic Selling Will Lead To a Sharp Bounce , we stated: "Bearish sentiment is everywhere. Investors have finally realized what we have been discussing for the last two years. And now that we are near a temporary bottom, some investors are taking action. Unfortunately, investors are reacting to the past. They should have been in cash during the downtrend...Instead, investors should be positioning themselves for a counter trend rally: by either not selling their stocks or if they are in cash, by considering market exposure (depending on your risk tolerance)."

Recovery Rally in S&P 500 Short SPY ETF / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The pullback in the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX: SPY) from 84.80 to 81.30 since Monday has coincided with the recovery rally in the ProShares Single Leveraged Short SPY (NYSE: SH) from 73.00 to 76.00, which also happens to have filled the down-gap left behind last Thursday. Classic technical behavior would argue for the SH now to decline after having filled the gap. If such a scenario unfolds, then the SH should press back into the 74.00-73.80 area, which would imply a climb towards 84.00 in the SPY concurrently. We maintain a long position in the SH in our model portfolio as a partial hedge against an implosion in our long positions.

Sustainable Stocks Bull Market Not Likely / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRather than relying on hope as the primary driver for making decisions, investors would be well served to focus on the fundamental and technical facts. An analysis of the facts leads us to conclude we are facing the following in terms of probable outcomes:

  • Highest Probability – New lows / continuation of bear market.
  • Moderate Probability – Cyclical bull – higher highs – followed by retests or new lows.
  • Lowest Probability – A sustainable bull market (secular).

Stocks Hurt by Fears of Earnings / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStocks fell for the second straight day. The market opened heavy and traded like that all day. There was no one thing causing this, but comments from famed sages George Soros (that the rally was pretty much done) and Marc Faber (the S&P 500 could drop as much as 10% to around 750) certainly added to the fall. Energy stocks were the big losers, as oil fell below $50. Natural gas hit a 6-year low, while tech shares were also noticeably weak on economic fears hurting orders / sales. After the bell there were weak earnings from Alcoa and fertilizer maker Mosaic who may fell pressure today. Note, Asian stock markets saw an even sharper correction on big losses for Daiwa.

More Sharp Losses for Stock Indices / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices suffered more sharp losses today, as expected. The day started out with a large gap down. The indices moved sharply lower, tested support, bounced, and then took them out mid-day, reaching secondary support around 1270 NDX and 815 SPX. When that held for about an hour, they tried to rally and did so, but with about 10 minutes to go sold off very sharply and gave back the entire rally on the SPX, closing near the lows for the day on that index and not from it on the NDX.

How to Profit from Inefficient Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: One of the single biggest fallacies foisted upon the investing public is the notion of an “efficient market.” Academics love it, which is why the “ efficient-market hypothesis ,” or EMH, as it's known, is taught at all the leading B-schools. The broadest version of this theory holds that securities prices already reflect all known information; EMH proponents believe it's impossible to outperform the markets over time - except by luck.

Stock Market Snaps Winning Streak / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFormer Deutsche bank star banking analyst Simon Mayo (now with French house Calyon) put a dampener on financials yesterday by voicing his concerns that Geithner's new plan may not offer as much hooray as the markets think. The extension of the deadline for participation in the securities side of the Geithner Plan has spooked some investors. There are also fears that private sector interest in the plan is proving less than the market originally expected, and that the extra two weeks and looser selection criteria are a desperate effort to throw the net wider. But that said, equities still managed to jog to the finish well off their worst levels.

Financial and Economic Crisis In Order Of Magnitude  / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn order of magnitude, it's important for those who pay attention to these things to note what is occurring in the economy and financial markets right now is of the highest degree in terms of importance (and movements), because the world's reserve currency, the US Dollar ($), is in jeopardy of losing this role , which will change everything. Why is this happening right now? Answer: In a nutshell, it's because the global trade loop the US has with China (and the rest of the world to a lesser degree) is increasingly coming unraveled as stressed US consumers purchase less manufactured products from Asia, which in turn reduces currency multiples the Chinese have been using to buy US Treasuries.

How FAS 157 Mark-to-Market Helped Slow the Economy / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's been a lot of discussion of how the FAS 157 mark-to-market accounting rule may have contributed to the current deep recession. The charts below from Citi Research (using Federal Reserve data) make a pretty compelling case for the unforeseen damage caused by the strict application of FAS 157. We are among those who applaud the Financial Accounting Standards Board for taking action this week to add flexibility in how the mark-to-market rule is used going forward.

Stock Market Rebound? Or... Just Bouncing? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week has been a head scratcher. The government is dictating who should be running General Motors and gave Chrysler an ultimatum – merge or die. Home prices continue to fall, and do so at a faster rate over the past three months than over the past year (not getting “less worse”!). Unemployment (a lagging indicator) continues to deteriorate, as do the weekly jobless claims.
