Pearls Before Swine – Perils of Free Money / Stock-Markets / Global Pandemic

By: Axel_Merk

The swine flu could not have come at a worse time. Just when there were signs of a nascent recovery, confidence takes another hit. As a result, “reflation trades” may be put on ice if investors revert to “panic mode” again. While it is difficult to assess the full economic impact of the swine flu, we believe some of the dynamics are foreshadowed. This flu may reinforce long-term trends and provide an opportunity for investors to position themselves accordingly.

Stocks Piggy Back Rally on the Fed FOMC Statement / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite a horrific headline GDP number yesterday, the market was encouraged by the entrails, which showed consumer expenditure up by more than expected and a massive drop in inventories (which of course is required to find a new equilibrium between supply and reduced demand). The Fed also chimed in with some cheer with a more upbeat tone in their FOMC statement, while Starbucks beat street estimates. I assume the mood for the day was that the Armageddon story is off.

Stock Market Another Solid Up-Session / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had another solid up-session, although they came way off their highs in the last hour after the FOMC announcement's brief spike-up rally.
The day started out with a gap up. They motored strongly all morning, backed and filled mid-day but held support, and then came on after the FOMC meeting, spiked up to 1398 on the Nasdaq 100 and up to 882 on the S&P 500, right near our overhead resistance levels, and then came down in a sharp 5-wave decline in the last hour, bouncing in the last 5 minutes to take back some of the losses.

Weekly Wizards on the Stock and Commodity Markets Next Move / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Weekly_Wizards

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Paulenoff, on the Financial and Oil & Gas ETFs
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Now that the Financial Select SPDR (XLF) has been subjected to earnings, earnings doubts, stress tests, all sorts of suspicions about the efficacy of the tests, and now leads about which bank will or might not need more capital (according to the Fed), let's notice that for the past two weeks the price pattern has carved out a high level consolidation pattern.

Nasdaq Q's Pushing Resistance / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let’s notice that the PowerShares QQQ Trust (Nasdaq: QQQQ) is pushing up against the sharply declining 200-day moving average, now at 34.24, which if hurdled should trigger upside acceleration towards my next optimal target zone of 35.20/50.  That will imbue the big picture chart of the Q’s with a similar very constructive look exhibited by Cisco (CSCO), per my posting from yesterday.  I am still using 33.30 as my stop-reversal plateau.

Stock Markets Hit by Swine flu and Stress Tests Versus Green Shoots of Recovery / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bulls and bears called it a draw yesterday. Despite a continued escalation in the number of reported swine flu cases, horrible numbers for US Steel and fretting over financials needing more capital, equities held up well. News that IBM is boosting its dividend and doing a buyback, improving consumer confidence numbers and data from the Case Shiller survey which pointed to the rate of decline in house prices easing off all provided a fillip.

One Way to Make a Fortune Investing in Healthcare / Stock-Markets / Healthcare Sector

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAndrew Grove once said, “I'm a great believer in particularly being alert to changes that change something, anything, by an order of magnitude.”

Grove has been widely credited with Intel’s stunning growth over the years. His unwavering focus on “the next big thing” has allowed Intel to stay one step ahead of competitors for decades. In a period of rapid technological advancement between 1978 and 2004, that was no easy feat.

Watching the 200 DMA on Cisco CSCO & the Nasdaq Q's / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Our model portfolio position in the PowerShares QQQ Trust (Nasdaq: QQQQ) has reversal stops at 33.27. Barring such a move to that level, the Q’s should consolidate between 34.00 and 33.30 ahead of another thrust that confronts the declining 200 DMA, now at 33.29. A sustained climb above the 200 DMA will be considered very technically significant, and will imbue the chart structure with a similar look to what Cisco (CSCO) looks like this morning.  (See chart.) Cisco hurdled its 200 DMA, but let’s see if the price structure can sustain above the DMA into this evening’s close.

Pig Scores Bull Out of the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDespite the tabloid-like hysteria about swine flu, stocks held up reasonably well yesterday. Investors did dump the usual suspects, i.e. airline, travel, hotel and cruise stocks. GM also announced that it will slash 21k jobs and axe 40% of dealerships (shares closed up 21%). Financials were also a drag, on renewed worries that the government’s pending stress test results will force regional backs in particular to raise fresh capital. Pharma and health-care stocks were, of course, higher.

Stock Market Mild Sell-Off To Start The Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The markets had a down day to start the week, but it wasn't too severe. The day started out with a down move on sharply lower futures, but they immediately started rallying and went into a 5-wave ally on the Nasdaq 100 that saw it jump from 1357 up to 1385 inside of the first hour. The S&P 500 didn't quite cooperate. Despite the fact that the NDX went to new rally highs, the SPX did not, moving from 856 to 868. They rolled steadily over mid-day, retested the lows and bounced in the last hour, but did not break the support lows.

Downward Pressure on the S&P Index / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let’s notice that the e-Mini S&P 500 has “returned to sender” and is looping down to revisit this morning’s low at 846.75, which if violated should trigger a sharp downside follow-through that has as its target a test of the nearest-term support line, now at 839.50.  If the trendline is violated and sustained, then let’s expect even more intensive pressure that presses the e-SPM for a test of critical support at the 4/21 low of 823.00 –- or near 82.75 in the S&P 500 Depository Receipts (AMEX:  SPY).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's never been a better moment for making money than we have right now in 2009 in America.

That's because the U.S. government is borrowing the rest of the world's money and dishing it out around America. Meanwhile, everything is on bargain-basement sale... even the casinos along the Las Vegas strip are trading as penny shares. It's amazing...

Analog Comparisons Between Stock Market Indices  / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePicking things up from the other day, and in an effort to continue being successful investors, we are here today to check the analog comparisons that have proven invaluable in aiding us identify pattern and timing elements in present day stock market movements. You will remember from our discussion on such things Monday that developing an appropriate / realistic ‘big picture’ view and then continuing to monitoring / model ongoing progress / change is key to becoming a successful investor, so here we are continuing this process. And I am happy to report history continues to be our friend in this regard, in knowing where to look, such that pattern and timing elements overlaid with the 1937 / 1938 echo-bubble sequence in the states and post bubble Nikki are running incredibly close matches.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment: The Same Story / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is the same story this week as last as this is now the sixth week in a row where investor sentiment, as measured by the "Dumb Money" indicator, remains neutral. When we couple this with the fact that prices on the major stock indices remain below their 40 week moving averages, there is a high likelihood that the market will rollover in the next several weeks.
