Stock Market Holy Short Covering, Batman! / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Guy_Lerner

If I were to watch one piece of data from the Rydex asset data, it would be the leveraged bulls v. leveraged bears. Not only can we discern what way this small group of market timers is leaning (i.e., bull v. bear bet), but we can also get a glimpse of how much conviction (i.e., use of leverage) they have in their belief. Typically, we want to bet against these market timers.

Stock Market Bears Beware / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt the risk of sounding a little crazy in knowing the fundamentals are indeed ‘that bad’, this is a cautionary note to those who are short stocks to expect volatility moving forward, but not the kind you are hoping for. And hey, the technicals in the markets are no hell either. In this regard, quite simply, there’s no buying power to legitimately send stocks higher on a lasting basis. To go along with this, the S&P 500 (SPX) is sporting a head and shoulders pattern measuring down to approximately 810. Again though; and in spite of this, if history is a good guide stocks will never get there within the present sequence.

Semiconductor Sector Stocks Rally Leading the Way / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The technical evidence suggests that "the bottom" is in for semiconductors. The potential for a secular trend change is there. If the general market gains traction - a big "if" here as I view the current market rally as a counter trend rally in an ongoing bear market - then it would not surprise me to see the semiconductor sector providing leadership."

Stocks Bear Market Counter Trend Rally NOT Over / 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. This will not be a straight-down decline, but a series of intermediate-term rallies and declines until we have reached the low point.

Investors It Does Not Pay to Fall A Sleep During a Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe vast majority of retail investors have “fallen asleep” on the broad market recovery since March. The sleepy character of market psychology has become even more pronounced in just the last few weeks as the market spent some time consolidating its gains. In that period of time we’ve seen quite a few analysts turn bearish on the market, which is usually a big mistake in a year when the dominant yearly Kress cycle is up.

Stock Market Rally, Topping Exhaustion Move? / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"In the short term, there is always hope for the bulls as prices on the S&P500 remain above the down sloping 40 week moving average and above the key support level at 876. In addition, personal research shows that prices will likely move higher in the week or two after the "Dumb Money" indicator has moved from extremely bullish zone (i.e., bear signal) to neutral as it did this past week. Into this this mini - lift would be the optimal time to sell (if you haven't done so already)."

Charting Perspective - Upward Wedge Puzzle - Index revealed and more on the Technology Sector / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Garry_Abeshouse

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn July 6th 2009 I posted a charting puzzle concerning a USA Index, where I said:

"This index represents one of the most important market sectors in the USA and as you can see, it has an interesting history.
The price patterns displayed are well defined and the upward wedges on the daily chart are typical of ones common at the moment over a broad spectrum of the USA equity market.

By: Angelo_Campione

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn June 23 we suggested a full position in a July 980/990 SPX Call Spread for a net credit of $0.50 and a half position in a July 770/760 SPX Put Spread for a net credit of $0.40. If you entered this, the premium you received was $70 per $1,000 of capital utilized, i.e. 7.0% before commissions for 4 weeks in the position.

The official CBOE settlement price for the July SPX options was 940.03.

Goldman Sachs Raking in Massive Profits, Market Review / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDue to the fact that Goldman Sachs is currently the favorite of Washington they are raking in massive profits during a time when most banks and brokerage firms are struggling for survival.

Due to a very successful second quarter, Goldman has set aside $226,156 per employee in compensation – a 75% increase per employee. That means annualized compensation could be $1 million per employee for the year. We find this of great interest inasmuch as the recently converted bank received a $10 billion taxpayer bailout via Goldman’s connections in Washington. They also received a myriad of benefits from several other government schemes over the past two years. It is nice to know that in part American taxpayers made this possible while unemployment is running on a U6 basis at 20.5%, and Americans are losing their homes by the millions.

Stock Market Potential Breakaway Gap....Watching 956 Pivot..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen we look back a month or so from now, it is quite possible that we will be talking about what took place on July 15th. It was on that day when we saw a breakaway gap over the old 912 gap that seemed impossible to get back over while the bulls were fighting to simply hold the 875 neckline. We had been testing that nasty 875 level over and over. We held when suddenly, and out of nowhere, we gapped hard over 912 and just kept on running for the rest of that day.

And Then There Was Leverage
Too Big To Save
Those Wild and Crazy Swiss
A Positive Third Quarter?
New York and Maine

We have avoided Armageddon, at least for now. The cost to the US taxpayer has been a few trillion. Some in the media are loudly announcing the end of the recession. But we are not out of the woods yet. There are a few more bumps in the road. Actually, some of them are quite steep hills. As big as the subprime problem? Maybe.

New Stocks Bull Market? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the wake of the price action seen this past week I have received numerous e-mails asking if this means a “New Bull Market” has begun.   The answer is, No!   Now, this is not to say or to try to deny the positive price action seen this past week.  Fact is, based on the chain of events that have followed the June high, I did not expect the July 1st high to be bettered.  However, the price action on Wednesday did in fact better the July 1st high and structurally, this was an obvious positive short-term development.   The price action this past week also potentially has intermediate-term implications as well.  But, this does not mean that a “New Bull Market” has begun.   At best, this simply means that the counter-trend bear market rally that began at the March 2009 low may not have run its course.

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA long wait forecast for full employment to return. - The U.S. won’t see a return to “full” employment for another six years, helping to hold down inflation, according to former Federal Reserve Governor Laurence Meyer.   “I think there’s going to be a long legacy of the financial crisis and the deep recession,” Meyer said in an interview today on Bloomberg Radio.

Which Investments? as America Shifts Towards Thrift / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: Sometimes when we’re analyzing market trends … figuring out which investments to buy … or just trying to live our daily lives, we miss the forest for the trees.

We focus too much on the short-term trends and lose sight of the big picture. And we don’t think about what’s likely to happen over the next five or ten years because we’re just trying to make it through the next five or ten DAYS.
