India’s Reliability Provides a Razor Thin Investment Edge Over China / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: With sky-high growth potential, China and India are the two markets no investor can afford to miss out on. But that doesn't mean they're impervious to market turbulence, and in times of trouble, India is the more reliable investment.

Stock Market Counter Trend Rally Heading for Consolidation / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
Long-term trend - The Dow Jones Industrials may be deviating from their typical decennial pattern in an election year. Important cycles going into the Fall could be the reason for this, but one also has to consider the possibility that the downward pressure from the 120-yr cycle, which is due to make its low in 2012-2014, has begun to take effect and that October 2007 was the top of the bull market. This is not yet confirmed and remains a low probability.

Stock Markets Set to Consolidate Rally / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: Friday, most of the major indices closed at their highest levels since the mid July lows.

Short Term - Last week all of the major indices were up, but, in a change for he worse, the blue chips were stronger than the secondaries. The Dow Jones Industrial Average(DJIA) was up 3.60%, the S&P 500 (SPX) up 2.86% while the S&P midcap was up 1.61% and the Russell 2000 (R2K) was up 2.53%. On Monday, new lows on both the NYSE and NASDAQ hit their highest levels since the day after the mid July price low. Both the NYSE and NASDAQ new low indicators are moving sharply upward so there should life left in this rally.

The Stocks Relief Rally and Commodities Correction / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Wall Street Journal: S&P email – “We should not be rating it” “Some of the most strongly worded emails from analysts questioning their own ratings came from S&P, according to a draft version of the 38-page report, which includes the firms and was reviewed by The Wall Street Journal. The unit of McGraw-Hill is the largest bond-rating firm by revenue.

“In one email, an S&P analytical staffer emailed another that a mortgage or structured-finance deal was ‘ridiculous' and that ‘we should not be rating it'. The other S&P staffer replied that ‘we rate every deal', adding that ‘it could be structured by cows and we would rate it'.

US Dollar and Stocks Olympics Rally Despite Recession / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Olympic Games kicked off at 8:08:08 pm on Friday night, the eighth day of the eighth month of 2008. Coincidence? Not at all. The number eight is considered lucky by the Chinese, because in Cantonese (the language of South China) the word for prosperity is “fa”, which sounds like “ba” (eight).

Let the gains begin. Fortune also smiled upon stock markets, with the S&P 500 Index scoring its first back-to-back weekly gain since April as the US dollar rallied strongly and oil and commodities plummeted. The S&P 500's gain since the low of July 15 has been 6.7%, with the Financial SPDR up by 27.8%.

An Interview With the Kress Stock Market Cycle Master / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have long been an admirer of the stock market cycle analysis of one Samuel J. “Bud” Kress, proprietor of SJK Capital and publisher of the cycle-based SineScope advisory. Kress has been in the equity market business all his adult life, either on Wall Street or in more recent years as an independent analyst/trader. If the Kress name seems familiar to you it's probably because you remember the chain of S.H. Kress & Co. “five and dime” stores that once dotted the country. The store's founder, Samuel H. Kress, was Bud's grandfather.

Stocks and Commodities Bubbles, Parabolic Moves, and Resulting Collapses / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the chart below I have included a weekly chart of the Nasdaq 100. Beginning at the 4-year cycle low that occurred in October 1998, we can see that price rose sharply in February 1999. In fact, in that 4-month period this index moved from a low of 1,063.74 up to 2,150.83. This was a 102% advance in only 4 months. As we moved into October of 1999 this advance was much more orderly, but still managed to advance another 400 points during this time period and in doing so the Nasdaq 100 had advanced 143% in a mere 12 months. As this move received more and more attention more and more people jumped on the bandwagon with the hottest tech stock. As a result, a bubble began to form.

Stocks Soar as Crude Oil Slides / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Equities are on a roll. Looking at the Nasdaq through the daily chart of the Nasdaq 100 Trust Shares (QQQQ), we see that the Q's closed at 47.31, just above the declining 200 DMA at 47.25. This is a very positive sign that today's upmove SHOULD continue Š towards my next optimal target zone of 48.20/50.

Using Macroeconomics to Obtain Long-term Market Forecasts / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs I mentioned in the previous 3-part series on market forecasting, we must look at several variables in order to get a good sense of where the market might be headed. In that series of articles, I discussed sentiment, charting and methods of market valuation. I have integrated some of this previous material with new material here. You can find the other material elsewhere online. Here, I discuss the charting section and extend the discussion to long-term market forecasts.

S&P 500 Stocks Index Probes Critical Resistance / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Another mini "melt-up" that follows a mini "melt down." After yesterday's late-session plunge, this morning out of the blue (but in coincidence with very weak oil and gold prices) the SPDR Trust (AMEX: SPY) has rocketed across its recent range to once again probe critical resistance between 128.50 and 129.30. If this climb manages to hurdle -- and sustain -- above 129.30, the near-term price structure should "combust" to the upside in a thrust to 132.50 next. Failure to do so, however, will argue for yet another loop to the downside that tests support at 126.50/30.

Systemic Risk Spreads as Gold Loses Safe-haven Status / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLess than meets the eye…is a good description for the Wal-Mart July sales report . The sales results, along with cautious outlooks for August, left little hope for any lasting boost from tax rebate checks to prop up consumers headed into the back half of the year and an all-important December holiday season.

"The stimulus (checks) really had a marginal effect at best and it has run its course and there's no carry-through," said Retail Metrics President Ken Perkins. "It's difficult to see where some sort of boost in spending is going to come from."

Money Printing to Save Imploding Banking System Will Send Gold Soaring / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe path to the printing press is a long one. It is used at first to spread credit indiscriminately in sustaining commerce and funding financial systems. For the United States , that means horribly inefficient usage of credit in commerce, where 5 units of credit produce one unit of business activity. In the twisted bizarre arena that is Wall Street, the financial maze they created has imploded as yet another chapter is written in the standard textbook of boom & bust. They managed to cause the most powerful deflation storm in eighty years, all born from the monetary inflation wellspring, no easy feat.

Responding to Stocks Bear Market Conditions / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe talked about the continuing global bear market in equities on Monday, but there was an important corollary to this discussion that was not addressed (we will address it here now). The question is this: how do you, as a trader or investor, respond to bear market conditions?

Asset Price Deflation Heralds Big Problems for Baby Boomers / Stock-Markets / Pensions & Retirement

By: Dudley_Baker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMost of my readers and subscribers know that I have lived in Ajijic , Mexico for nine years. This is a 'village' of which several thousand foreigners call home. We are here are many reasons, hopefully #1 is the love of Mexico and the Mexican people, the climate (almost perfect year round) and what is, at least for now, a safe and welcome place for us foreigners. We have a great lifestyle and can live in a $100,000 home or a million dollar place, most of which is paid for with cash. Hang in there as I am getting to the point of this piece.

S&P 500 Stocks Index Consolidating at Top of Upleg / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

For the most part, the SPDR Trust (AMEX: SPY) have held yesterday's gains extremely well, and appear to be consolidating right at the top of the upleg from 124.77 to 128.62, presumably ahead of another thrust that will confront critical July-Aug resistance at 129.10/15. If hurdled and sustained, the SPY should accelerate to confront its key resistance plateau at 130.20, which represents the coordinate of the declining 50 DMA.

Financial Markets Monthly Analysis and Stock Pick / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFollowing the second quarter earnings season the market lacks conviction and is still trying a bullish “bounce up” in an overall bear trend. I would ride any upward move until the “technicals” signal otherwise which I suspect will be the middle of September as we approach the release of third quarter earnings. Read full article...

The Birth Pains of a New Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter what has seemed to many investors to be the “longest year”, stocks have been going through a volatile period which some interpret to be bearish. There are still many analysts who are quick to label the current market phase a temporary pause on the way to a bigger stock market cascade. Contrary to these expectations, the market tape is sending a different message as we'll establish in this commentary.

It has been all too easy to dismiss the recent state of affairs in the financial markets as the start of a major bear market and economic depression. The pain that has been inflicted has left deep and abiding wounds that won't soon be forgotten by most investors. Making matters worse, every time a negative news event crosses the wires it adds to the widespread belief that the U.S., and indeed the emerging foreign powers, teeters on the brink of a major financial catastrophe.

Stock Market Mega-Trends August 2008 / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you want to learn to invest, one of the best ways is to follow the trend. Following the trend is a proven way to beat the market and grow your stock portfolio. Basic technical analysis provides the tools to identify and follow the trends of the market as determined by the S&P 500.

It is best to begin with the big picture in mind and then work our way down to weekly and then daily views of the charts. You will notice that the chart and the value of the indicators change as we move from a monthly to a weekly and then a daily chart.

Stock Market Liquidity Which Way Will it Break? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday's charts show the inflows and outflows of liquidity into the stock market.  When inflows are trending up and positive (in expansion), the competition for stocks becomes high and prices are bid up causing an upside rally.

The opposite happens when we see liquidity outflows and a trending down pattern.  When this is happening with outflows in contraction territory , the balance shifts to a selling competition where investors try to get the best price before expectations of lower movement.  This causes a condition that ends up in a market correction.
