Is the Financial Crisis Really Over? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt has long been my contention that we are entering an extraordinary period of time in which using historical analogies to plot market behavior is going to become increasingly problematical. In short, the analogies, the past performance if you will, all break down because the underlying economic backdrop is unlike anything we have ever seen. It makes managing money and portfolio planning particularly challenging. Traditional asset management techniques just simply may not work. Buy and hope strategies may be particularly difficult to navigate.

Making Profits From Stock, Forex and Bond Market Trading Cycles / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Uncommon_Wisdom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLarry Edelson writes: These days, it seems like many investors have forgotten that it’s ok to try and make some money. Almost everyone I know is playing it ultra safe instead. But with interest rates so low, you’re making less than 1 percent a year on your savings!

Stock Markets See Blooming Gardens Not Just Green Shoots of Recovery / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike the energiser bunny with rechargeable batteries, the rally just keeps going, kicking sand in the face of the naysayer “it’s a suckers rally” bears. For all the earlier criticism, the not so stressful stress tests have relieved stress because the extensive lead time to raise the equity is beneficial and will allow much of it to come from earnings retention. In addition, equity dilution is less than feared and risk of losses above the preferential shares in the capital structure now appears very remote.

Bargain Investments to Buy on the Next Market Correction / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Uncommon_Wisdom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Broderick writes: The market rally has gone on a lot longer than I thought it would. In fact, there are some signs of real strength — signs that this rally has further to run. Does that mean the big, bad bear is dead? Don’t pin your hopes on it. There are fundamental problems that our economy will be working out for years to come.

Stock Market Crash Necessary to Boost Weak U.S. Dollar and Treasury Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Clive_Maund

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen The Rose Tinted Glasses Fall Off... We are going to start this article with a premise, which is that the bond market and the dollar are much more important to the powers that be in the US than the stock market. Two months ago the stock market was plumbing new lows and the end of the world was nigh. Now, instead, you walk down Wall St and everything is smelling of roses. Unfortunately, however, there is a massive storm threatening to break that will necessitate the immediate sacrifice of the stock market, and especially those mugs who have been taken in by the recovery hype being doled out by the media and have been buying the market in the recent past.

It Takes Bulls to Make a Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / Articles

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "Dumb Money" indicator now shows that there are too many bulls. From a contrarian perspective, one would think that this is bearish for prices as there are too many believers in what pundits are calling the next bull market - "hey you, your missing the train... your missing a generational buying opportunity". But in reality, it takes bulls to make a bull market. So higher prices and excessive bullish sentiment have occurred together in the past, and this dynamic is generally the norm in a bull market as the data shows. On the other hand, the bulls - or newly bullish let's say - should be careful what they wish for as excessive bullish sentiment can also herald an intermediate term top in a bear market.

Investors Celebrate Bank Stress Test Results By Buying Risky Assets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne of the definitions of “stress” offered by the Merriam-Webster dictionary is “bodily or mental tension resulting from factors that tend to alter an existent equilibrium”. Well, any bodily or mental tension investors might have been suffering from as a result of financial factors were shrugged off on Thursday with the announcement by US regulators that ten of the nation’s largest banks had to add a total of “only” $74.6 billion in equity following the completion of stress tests. However, whether this will indeed restore the equilibrium remains to be seen.

The Stock Market "Bull or Bear" Debate Will Be Resolved Soon / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: The_BullBear

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe transition from the Fear trade to the Inflation trade is in progress.

SUMMARY

Markets are nearing a resolution which is graphically illustrated by the relationship between the 50 and the 200 EMA. Fundamentally, the economic news flow will either continue to support the recovery thesis or we will see renewed deterioration. The author's expectation is that the fundamentals will continue to show gradual improvement and the markets will manifest this with a bullish crossover of the 50 and 200 EMA.

Imminent Global Stock Market Crash to Support U.S. Dollar / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Global_Research

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBob Chapman writes: On Friday the dollar completely broke down, with the USDX collapsing to about 82.5, as monetizations by the Fed became a stark reality. A world stock market collapse could be imminent as a source of dollar support. We wonder how low they will let the dollar go before they collapse the stock markets to chase people back into US treasuries, which have also broken down, with treasury interest rates on the rise despite various Fed purchases of treasuries in the hundreds of billions. So much for the bogus stress tests as things turn much uglier than anticipated by the boneheads in Goldman Sachs South who are attempting to resurrect the Goldilocks Matrix.

The Free Market Did Not Cause the Financial Crisis / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: LewRockwell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThomas Woods writes: In March 2007 then-Treasury secretary Henry Paulson told Americans that the global economy was “as strong as I’ve seen it in my business career.” “Our financial institutions are strong,” he added in March 2008. “Our investment banks are strong. Our banks are strong. They’re going to be strong for many, many years.” Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke said in May 2007, “We do not expect significant spillovers from the subprime market to the rest of the economy or to the financial system.” In August 2008, Paulson and Bernanke assured the country that other than perhaps $25 billion in bailout money for Fannie and Freddie, the fundamentals of the economy were sound.

Stock Market Investors Don't Be Fooled by Inflation / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStrike up the band, boys, happy days are here again! Recently released short-term economic data, including unemployment claims, non-farm payrolls, home sales, and business spending, which had been so unambiguously horrific in February and March, are now just garden-variety awful. With the Wicked Witch of Depression now apparently crushed under the house of Obamanomics, the Munchkins of Wall Street have sounded the all clear, pushing the Dow Jones up 25% from its lows. But the premature conclusion of their Lollipop Guild economists, that the crash of 2008/2009 is now a fading memory, is just as delusional as their failure to see it coming in the first place.

Nasdaq Q's on the Move / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The PowerShares QQQ Trust (Nasdaq:  QQQQ) slowly climbs to the upside off of its two-day double-bottom formation at 33.88, towards another test of resistance up at 34.74 (this morning’s high).  If the Q’s can claw their way above 34.74 – especially late in today’s session – I will be expecting a powerful upside follow-through that revisits this week’s high at 35.30, possibly on the way to my optimal next target at 36.20/50.  At this juncture only a plunge beneath 33.88 will wreck the still constructive pattern.

Stock Market Pre NonFarm Payrolls Profit Taking Sets In / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. stocks fell prey to some pre nonfarm payroll profit taking which is hardly surprising given their recent gravity defying stellar up move. Tech and telecom sectors bore the brunt of the selling pressure while retailers were the sole bright spot. Weak demand at yesterday’s Treasury auction also rattled confidence as traders fretted that a rise in yields could choke off refinancing and increase mortgage costs and resets.

Opportunities in Gold, Stocks and Currencies on Increased Global Risk Appetite / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou must have read by now that about 70% of activity in currency markets over the last 2 years has been largely driven by risk appetite, with equity indices being the primary independent variable steering FX flows. But there are times when currencies peak or bottom 2-3 days before equities begin to turnaround. The more resounding and recent example was the March 4th bottom in the EURUSD (peak in the US dollar), which occurred 2 days before the low in the major stocks indices.
