Stock Market Correction Targets Retest of the Lows / 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 - An intermediate low may have been reached in November, but this remains to be confirmed. There is good possibility that January 2009 will bring a new low, or at least a test of the lows.

Stock Market Ready For The Breakdown... / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe wedges are hanging on by a hair. Horrific late action tells us the likelihood is for a break down out of those wedges we've been showing you and moving back towards a retest of the old lows over time with bounces along the way. Some have already broken and some are about to. You'll see that on the charts sent with this newsletter. It looks bad folks. I guess the hope for the bulls is that we'll get another successful retest of those lows. The divergences on a move down lower will put in positive divergences but any bounce better be good or we're headed for something we all don't want to think about.

Fair-Value and Mark to Market...The Most Expensive Scam in History? / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTime for "Surprise-Free" Valuation Standards? - Once upon a time accountants used to count beans. But then they realized (a) that's not very complicated and (b) you don't get paid much for jobs that are not very complicated (particularly after "out-sourcing").

So they decided to be management consultants. That can be as complicated as you want it to be, so it's very difficult to see if you did the job properly or not. Which is why there was (is) much more money in it, because if the punter doesn't have a clue what he's buying you can charge him a lot of money...if you get your branding right.

Global Stock Markets Spluttered Due to Dreadful Economic Data / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Stock Market Investor Sentiment: Sell Strength (Again!) / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "dumb money" and "smart money" sentiment indicators are neutral on the equity markets. While a neutral reading is not particularly telling regarding market direction, it should be noted that this is the fifth week in a row where the "dumb money" is neutral, and this is not a scenario that is generally supportive of higher prices especially with prices on the S&P500 under their 40 week moving average. The ideal situation for higher equity prices would be for the "smart money" to be bullish and the "dumb money" bearish (i.e., bull signal).

Stock Market Selloff Relieves Overbought Pressure / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe good news is: Although all of the major indices were down substantially last week, new lows hit their lowest levels since November 2006.

Short Term New highs expand in strong markets. Recently we have seen the lowest levels of new highs since late 1987 when there were about half as many issues traded on the NYSE and 20% fewer on the NASDAQ than there are currently.

Stock Market Investors Don't Buy The Hype / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHistorically, bear markets have run approximately one-third the duration of the preceding bull market. From my perspective, the last bull market began at the 1974 low and tried to conclude at the 2000 top. But, as I have said many times before, the powers that be would not let nature take its course. As a result, they created the largest credit bubble in history, not to mention the housing and commodity bubbles, all in an effort to save the stock market. This resulted in what I view as the last gasp up into the 1974 to 2007 bull market top and I believe that the correction of that bull market likely has a lot further to go.

Stock and Financial Markets Outlook for 2009 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Joseph_Dancy

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe S&P 500 index of some of the largest and most profitable companies in the world was down 38.5% in 2008 – the worst performance since the Great Depression. Illiquid market sectors performed worse. Over the last ten years a long term investor in the S&P 500 would have lost money – so much for the ‘buy and hold well known companies' theory of investing.

Stocks Close Near Lows of the Day and Week / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Harry_Boxer

The indices had a quite negative finish not only to the session but the week, and they went out with a 4-day downtrend, near the lows for the day, particularly on the Dow and S&P 500. The day started out with a very sharp move lower after the employment report. They bounced around and then edged up slowly in bear-flag fashion for the next 4-5 hours. In the last hour or so when they failed at the declining tops resistance going back 4 days, they rolled over in a 3-wave decline and closed at the lows for the afternoon on the Nasdaq and the lows for the week on the S&P 500 and Dow.

Rydex Asset Data: Stock Market Leveraged Bulls v. Leveraged Bears / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have presented a lot of data recently suggesting an intermediate term top for equities, and the weakness in prices this past week seems to be consistent with that view. Just as investors begin to embrace the hope that better times are coming, it's "bam" back to reality. This is still a bear market - sell hope, buy fear.

Nasdaq Q's in Meaningful Correction / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Purely from a pattern perspective, my work argues that there should be little doubt that the Q's (Nasdaq: QQQQ) are in the midst of a meaningful correction of the upmove from the 12/29 low at 28.47 to the 1/06 high at 31.63. Today's downside breach of yest.'s intraday low at 30.08 coupled with the form of the decline from this AM's pre-market rally high at 30.90 indicates strongly that the Q's have ended a... secondary downleg off of the 1/06 high (31.63), which should press prices towards a test of key support along the Nov.-Jan. trendline, now at 29.65.

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe March NASDAQ 100 was lower in overnight trading as it consolidates some of Thursday's rally. Stochastics and the RSI have turned bearish signaling that a short-term top might be in or is near. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing at 1218.58 would confirm that a short- term top has been posted. If March extends the rally off November's low, the reaction high crossing at 1321.75 is the next upside target.

Gold and Stock Markets Volume and Time Series Analysis / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere are those who are arguing that the equity markets are due for a bounce – maybe even an upward surge in prices. Some are very seasoned analysts who have decades of experience under their belts. They may be right, but this analyst has been struck by the relative lack of emphasis by these bullish analysts on the issues of volume and cyclical timing.

Flight to Safety 2009 to U.S. Dollar, Gold, Euro and Yen / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

Between the latest Mid East tensions and general flight to safety it rallied again to 83 on the USDX when it looked like it might crack into the 70's again, the low being 70ish last year, before the USD rallied after April of 08, which caught the commodity and metals complex.
