Financial Crisis 2008 Similar to 1987 Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Doug_Wakefield

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's been almost five years since my oldest son and I produced a 45 minute film to see what could be learned from studying the history of certain monetary trends that have been unfolding for decades. And, in our July 2007 newsletter, when I told our readers that we appeared to be at the beginning of a worldwide credit contraction, I quoted from President Franklin Roosevelt's May 7th , 1933 fireside radio chat to the nation.

Financial Markets Regulations, Baseball and the Law of Unintended Consequences / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the World Series coming up soon, it seems timely to compare some key financial regulations to the rules of baseball.

Say the visiting team scores on an error in the top of the first and the home team fails to score in the bottom of the inning. Under the current mark-to-market rule for securities, known as FAS 157, the game would be over at that point -- there would be no chance to play the other eight innings so the home team could try to get the run back.

Nasdaq QQQQ Trends Remains Bearish / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In a few of my recent updates in the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ), I mentioned an optimal next trading target zone of 33.00 to 31.50. With this morning's low at 31.35, I am on alert, watching the pattern development off of the new low in an effort to determine if the Q's are a high confidence buy (yet). With that in mind, let's notice the near-term declining tops line off of yesterday's mid-session peak prior to the last hour plunge.

Stocks Bear Market Returns With a Vengeance / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bear has returned with a vengeance. It looks like the Paulson bailout package was too little too late. The lines in all the major averages that were being drawn since June have now been crashed to the downside. Thus our decision to wait on the sideline last month has been vindicated. It was one of the worst stock market months in years and it is bound to get much uglier before a bottom is reached. Hopefully capitulation will come sooner rather than later.

Stock Market Crash- Where's the Bottom? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Weekly_Wizards

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur Wizards Harry Boxer, Mike Paulenoff and Jack Steiman weigh in this week on the direction of the markets.

According to Boxer, author of The Technical Trader : We are in a critical mode in the market. From mid-August to early October, literally only 6 weeks, that's all it's taken for the NDX to go from 1973 down to 1329, nearly 650 points, or about a third of its value, culminating with a spike down into what looks like perhaps very close to an important major low. We'll see if that occurs. There are very difficult fundamentals right now in the economy and we're not getting any good news. But we are stretched to the downside way more than we'd expect, and the oscillators, the VIX/VIXN and many other technical indicators I follow are at multiyear, if not historical, levels.

Stock Markets to Fall Another 25% Due to Margin Debt Deleveraging / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is one concrete reason why US indices could lose at least another 20-25% from current levels. The powerful correlation between margin debt usage by member firms of the NY Stock Exchange and the trend of major indices such as the S&P500 and the Dow Jones Industrials Average suggests further selling ahead in the main indices.

European Government's Panic Triggers Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBlack Monday ended with European stock markets down by between 7% and 9%, wiping out more than $2 trillion from global market capitalisation as markets collapsed in response to the disunified panic moves by individual european governments to guarantee all deposits at 100% which is contrary to the outcome of the weekend crisis meeting of European leaders that's only significant result was for a £12billion package of loans for small businesses.

Stock Market Rebounds from Crash Low Amidst Extreme Volatility / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe markets had another historic day today with extreme volatility both up and down, mostly to the downside early. The indices opened sharply lower on a gap-down and slid hard, had a sharp morning bounce that took the NDX from 1358 back to 1406 , nearly a 50-point rally. At the same point the SPX went from 1027 to 1056, but they were unable to sustain.

The Big Bailout of 2008 Will FAIL to Rescue Crashing Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Michael_J_Kosares

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe chickens come home to roost - You get a sense that America's chickens have come home to roost. Instead of learning from our past mistakes though, as the idiom above is meant to suggest, the nation appears intent on compounding them. The Great American Bailout of 2008 is simply more of the same -- more debt, more easy money, more moral hazard, more taxpayer responsibility, and more government intervention. Quite literally, the government has once again applied a band aid, papered the problem over and delayed once more what will certainly be an even worse day of reckoning. Yes, the chickens have come home to roost, but for all the roosting all we have gotten is more chickens.

Crashing Nasdaq QQQQ Have Unfinished Business on the Downside / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Paulenoff

While the cash SPX violated its 62% support level of the 2002-2007 bull phase, the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) have just tested the similar level at 33.33, which thus far has held the selling onslaught. In that my weekly RSI momentum gauge is making new lows, coupled with breakdown of the SPX, suggests strongly that the Q's still have some unfinished biz on the downside. My next near-term optimal targets are 31.70/50 and then 30.00-28.90.

Bailout Dramas Generate More Stock Market Black Mondays / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Regent_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother dramatic weekend saw four banks receive government bail outs, not to mention the further file sales and mergers. Mondays have been chaos for the last few weeks, as governments on both sides of the pond prefer to work through major announcements, mergers, and bailouts, over the relative calm of the weekend. Although Bradford and Bingley grabbed the headlines in the UK, governments in Belgium, the Netherlands, and Luxemburg had to throw billions at Fortis, while Germany guaranteed loans to Hypo Real Estate. In the US, investors waved goodbye to Wachovio as a takeover by Wells Fargo pleased traders, in part as it indicated further mergers and acquisitions might be on the cards.

Nasdaq Break Below 2000 Confirms Severe Collapse of the Economy / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore I get in to what took place today I want to discuss a very important breakdown in the Nas today. If we go back to late 2005 and again late 2006 there is a very nice double bottom at Nas 2000. Yes, we closed below it yesterday but only by 1% and with the House decision on the bill today, it was an important day to see if the Nas could get itself back above that critical 2000 level. The fact that it feel more than 1% to 1947 confirms officially that 2000 break. A triple bottom breakdown. Nasty stuff. When an index retests a low as the Nas did late in 2006 in is very important that this level gets defended on any future selling.

Credit Chaos Next– The Mother of all Bank Runs? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNouriel Roubini: Next – the mother of all bank runs?
“It's plain that the current financial crisis is worsening in spite of – or perhaps because of – the Treasury rescue plan. “The strains in financial markets are becoming more, rather than less, severe in spite of the nuclear option of a $700 billion package: Interbank spreads are widening and are at a level never seen before; credit spreads are widening to new peaks; short-term Treasury yields are going back to near-zero levels as there is flight to safety; credit default swap (CDS) spreads for financial institutions are rising to extreme levels as the ban on shorting of financial stock has moved the pressures on financial firms to the CDS market; and stock markets around the world have reacted very negatively to this rescue package.

Fear Grips Stock Markets as Economies Tip Into Recession / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhew – what a wild week! Global stock markets and commodities tumbled, whereas government bonds and the US dollar surged amid mounting fears that the ongoing turmoil in financial markets was foreshadowing a hard landing for the US and Europe.

The first-ever trillion-dollar loss (as measured by the Dow Jones Willshire 5000 Index) on Wall Street came on Monday in the wake of the US House of Representatives failing to gather enough votes to pass the $700 billion bank rescue package. Globally, more than $1.7 trillion got wiped off the MSCI World Index.

Stock Markets Oversold Due for a Relief Rally / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe good news is: We are probably near a tradable rally.

Short Term - Last Monday the financial system bailout was rejected for lack of pork, that oversight was corrected Friday. News of the bailout failure sent volume ratios on both the NYSE and NASDAQ to extremes not seen since October 19, 1987. Other breadth ratios hit extremes rarely seen.

Stocks Secular Bear Market Immune to Bailout Government Manipulation / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy every historical measure the equity markets slipped into a secular bear market in 2000. As a result, we began to see efforts by the powers that be to keep the market afloat. I have stated all along that manipulation, will ultimately not work. I have also stated all along that all this will do is make matters worse in the end. Well, I would think that everyone can now see, matters are indeed much worse. Yet, the Fed, the Treasury and the politicians continue to think that they can “fix” the problem by throwing more money at it. They do not understand that they can't “fix” this economic crisis. They also do not understand that it is their trying to “fix” things in the past that has created the current situation. All markets as well as the economy must both inhale and exhale. They are trying to prevent the exhaling and it ain't gonna work.
