Stock Market Consolidates Ahead of Bailout Plan News / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had a consolidation day ahead of tomorrow's release of the details of the bailout plan. The day started out with a move down that held support. They then rallied to new 3 day rally highs, and backed and filled in a downward slope until mid-afternoon when they tested the lows. That was successful, and then they bounced back into the positive side on the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100 by the end of the day, but drifted lower in the last 20-30 minutes.

Stock Market Pauses After Last Weeks Big Gains / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Kingsley_Anderson

After some big gains last week, today was a bit of a ho-hum affair as the DJIA only finished down 9.72 points. Does this rally have legs? We will know soon enough. There is a trendline (see the chart) right overhead the current price. Moreover, the DJIA's recent nemesis, the 50 dma , sits menacingly above at 8463.

Stock Markets Shrug Off Yet More Dire Data / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere was a perverse reaction to the dismal employment news from the US last Friday with indices rising throughout the session. Looks like no one wanted to be caught short with THAT bank bailout master plan coming tomorrow (16.00GMT) and today's fiscal stimulus. Note that the NASDAQ is now back positive for the year to date with Google (+54%) and Apple (+26%) showing strong leadership. Banks have bounced back strongly albeit from almost penny stock status! So a pivotal few days ahead.

Gold, Silver, Oil and Broad Stock Market Outlook / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week was exciting as the broad market dipped back down to test Hogan's Bottom again.  The market found support and posted a nice two day rally on increased volume as buyers stepped back into the market. The two biggest sectors were financials and homebuilders posting solid gains for the week. It's important to note that both those sectors had the largest amount of short selling, it looks like traders started to cover their short positions, which boosted both those sectors. The market does look like momentum is shifting to the upside but we could still see prices drift sideways or even lower for another couple months, as investors need to become more confident and start investing again.

Stocks Bear Market Rally Gathers Strength / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

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 lows appear to have been tested successfully. Bullish indications suggest another up-wave is starting. It needs to be confirmed by a further advance.

Global Stock Markets Favour Stimulus Over Bad Economic Data / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal stock markets shrugged off dire news on the US employment front, arguing that the gloomy data would hasten US lawmakers' passage of a stimulus package. After falling for four straight weeks and recording the worst performance of the major US indices for January on record, Wall Street reversed course on the back of a stimulus-induced rally.

A Confidence Crisis, Not a Money Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Though the life of a man be short of a hundred years, he gives himself enough anxiety as if he were to live a thousand.” --Ancient Chinese proverb

The crisis we keep hearing so much about, which formally began in 2007 and intensified in 2008, was at root a crisis in confidence. True, the credit crisis had its origins in the tight money policy of the Federal Reserve beginning in 2004 and continuing into 2007. So there was definitely a money/credit aspect to the crisis. But more than any single factor – and this has been especially true in the past few months – the crisis has been more about shattered confidence than a dearth of liquidity.

Financials XLF and Transports IYT Sectors Win the Day for Stock Indices / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThursday night I wrote about how we had a stand off in the making with the Financial Select Sector ETF (XLF) and the iShares Dow Jones Transportation ETF (IYT) flashing strong positive divergences on their daily charts versus strong price resistance based on the proximity of the 20 and 50 day moving averages. I felt fairly confident the divergences would win out because it was the first time in quite a long time that both of these critically important sectors had those divergences and they did so compressed far below the 0 line. This is when positive divergences have the best chance of playing out in a bullish fashion.

Awaiting the Peak in the Stock Market Countertrend UpMove / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf nothing else, then the next few days will make or break the current upmove in the equity market. Either the advance will feed on itself in conjunction with -- and reaction to -- all of the government-generated news, programs, and monetary support designed to lift the economy out of its deep recession, or, alternatively, will reveal itself as a classic, sharp recovery rally that turns out to be a massive Bull Trap prior to another vicious downleg.

Stocks Bear Market Dow Theory Non-Confirmation Update / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn November 21, 2007 the primary trend, in accordance to classical Dow theory, was confirmed as bearish. To date, nothing has occurred to invalidate that setup. According to Dow theory, once the primary trend is established, that trend must be considered intact until it is “authoritatively” reversed, which in this case would require a joint move by the averages back above their previous secondary high points. Since that has yet to occur, the primary trend must still be considered bearish.

Delusional Stock Market Ignores Fundamentals by Rallying on Bad U.S. Unemployment Data / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. Unemployment Rate rises to 7.6%. - The unemployment rate in the U.S. climbed to the highest level since 1992 in January and payrolls tumbled as the recession showed no sign of abating.

The jobless rate rose to 7.6 percent from 7.2 percent in December, the Labor Department said today in Washington. Payrolls fell by 598,000, the biggest monthly decline since December 1974, after dropping by 577,000 in the previous month.

Stock Market Blows Off Bad Unemployment News / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Kingsley_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe unemployment numbers were the worst in 35 years. Horrible news, right? Clearly, the economy is a shambles, right? What is the market's reaction? Why, a rally ensues, of course.

Conventional wisdom is that bad news will cause a market decline. However, when the market is so beaten down, bad news fails to have the same effect. The stock market is a forward looking animal. It does not live in the now, it focuses on the future. Based on Friday's action, the notion of a bottom forming is more plausible.

From Bailouts to Boondoggles, Betting on a Stock Market ‘B-Wave' Rally / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Kurt_Kasun

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDueling Scenarios Revisited - The following commentary is a follow-up to http://www.greenfaucet.com/... First, again I would like to make clear that I do not consider myself a trader or credentialed technician (chartist) and I prefer to focus on the longer term. But, as I stated in the referenced commentary above which I wrote two weeks ago, it appears that one of two patterns is emerging, and depending on which one prevails, it could determine how you should position your portfolio over the next few years.

Stock Markets Fail to Bounce, Food Prices Signalling Higher Commodity Prices / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Michael_J_Panzner

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday, the Labor Department reported that first-time claims for state unemployment benefits rose a greater-than-expected 626,000. Curiously, some commentators have downplayed the fact that claims are back to where they were more than 26 years ago because the labor pool is much larger than it was then.

Stock, Commodities, Futures and Forex Markets Analysis 6th February 2009 / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe March NASDAQ 100 was higher overnight as it extends this week's rally. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signaling that sideways to higher prices are possible near-term. If March extends this week's rally, the reaction high crossing at 1256.25 is the next upside target. Closes below Monday's low crossing at 1153.50 would confirm that a short-term top has been posted while opening the door for a possible test of January's low crossing at 1132.00 later this winter.
