How FAS 157 Mark-to-Market Helped Slow the Economy / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere's been a lot of discussion of how the FAS 157 mark-to-market accounting rule may have contributed to the current deep recession. The charts below from Citi Research (using Federal Reserve data) make a pretty compelling case for the unforeseen damage caused by the strict application of FAS 157. We are among those who applaud the Financial Accounting Standards Board for taking action this week to add flexibility in how the mark-to-market rule is used going forward.

Stock Market Rebound? Or... Just Bouncing? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week has been a head scratcher. The government is dictating who should be running General Motors and gave Chrysler an ultimatum – merge or die. Home prices continue to fall, and do so at a faster rate over the past three months than over the past year (not getting “less worse”!). Unemployment (a lagging indicator) continues to deteriorate, as do the weekly jobless claims.

Investor Sentiment: Converting Stock Market Bears To Bulls / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the equity markets continued their surge this past week, more bears have been converted to bulls. The number of bulls is by no means extreme, but as key resistance levels are approached, it appears that there will be fewer investors on the sidelines (i.e., new buyers) that could possibly power the market higher.

Stock Market Counter Trend Rally Could Extend for Several Months / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

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.

Stock Market Betting on a Global Economic Rebound / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUnemployment rate officially at 8.5% - The U.S. unemployment rate jumped in March to the highest level since 1983 as the economy lost 663,000 jobs, threatening to keep spending subdued for months and delay any recovery. The Department of Labor reports, “Nonfarm payroll employment continued to decline sharply in March (-663,000), and the unemployment rate rose from 8.1 to 8.5 percent, the Bureau of Labor Statistics of the U.S. Department of Labor reported today. Since the recession began in December 2007, 5.1 million jobs have been lost, with almost two-thirds (3.3 million) of the decrease occurring in the last 5 months. In March, job losses were large and widespread across the major industry sectors.”

Stock Market Investors Buoyed By Positive G20 Global Economy Developments / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors' mood benefited last week from the potentially positive implications for the global economy emanating from the London G20 meeting, and the Financial Accounting Standards Board's decision to relax mark-to-market accounting rules. And the previous week's announcement of the Geithner plan to remove toxic assets from the balance sheets of banks was also still seen as a tailwind for stock markets.

Stocks Bear Market and Dow Theory Update / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe primary bearish trend change that occurred on November 21, 2007 still remains intact in accordance with classical Dow theory. However, in accordance with my cycles work the March low was indeed expected and my model immediately triggered a short-term buy signal that quickly evolved to the point at which an intermediate-term buy signal was also triggered. Thus, we have a cyclical advance within the context of an ongoing primary bear market.

Stock Market Rally Some Room to Extend Further / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll day long on Friday indexes labored as if in a topping process. That would have been no surprise, since my model had been saying all along that the top of this rally would be 840-850 in the SPX and 1300-1315 in the NDX. I had given up earlier this week on the indexes achieving their target, although a close call. Today it achieved its target.

Tonight (Saturday) some 450 people will come together in San Diego to honor Richard Russell, who has been writing the Dow Theory Letter for over 50 years. In that spirit, in today's letter we are going to look deep inside the Dow, back to its very roots. The Dow is a price-weighted index as opposed to a cap-weighted index. Does that make a difference in performance? Specifically, does it affect how the Dow has performed since it was expanded to 30 names in 1928? There are some real surprises we have found, and I think you will find this letter very interesting.

Why Retail Stock Market Investors are Starving Themselves to Death / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSince the market bottomed and the new cyclical recovery bull market began, retail investors have gone on a collective buyer’s strike. Call it a “hunger strike” if you will. The retail crowd is effectively starving itself by missing out on some remarkable recoveries in recent weeks and will most likely continue to miss out on these opportunity until they simply can’t take it anymore. In other words, a classic repetition of the idealized market cycle is setting up perfectly.

Stimulus Commitments and Stock Market Confusion / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTalk about mixed signals. Confusion reigns supreme. On Thursday the economy was recovering because factory orders went up for February, breaking a multi-month downtrend. However, today, there is no end in sight as the employment report was released and another 663,000 Americans have lost their jobs. There is another storyline there, but we'll save that for a different time. It would seem that commentators, economists, and policymakers alike are in a race to call the bottom. Fundamentals and economic analysis have all but disappeared under what is a seemingly never-ending wave of distortion caused by monetary creation.

G20 U.S. Dollar Fiat Currency Smoke and Mirrors Manipulation / Stock-Markets / Articles

By: Rob_Kirby

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHumpty-Dumpty Fiat Sat on the Wall….You Know the Rest! - We've heard much over the past number of days, weeks and months as to what lays at the root of our economic and financial woes. We've been made painfully aware of sensationalized storylines; like a Made-off-ian styled Ponzi -fraud, a real head-scratcher when you consider that 64 billion in proceeds is alleged to have vanished into the ether without a trace; Bear and Lehman styled collapses where, in the confusion, 50 odd billions were created out of thin air – only to be quickly buried like bones in ‘rover's clover'; and perhaps the most egregious of all, visibly, to date – the 180 billion and growing “black hole” of Darth Vader Ponzi-finance – AIG.

Significant Upside Ahead for S&P 500 Short SH ETF? / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Let's notice that yesterday and today the ProShares Single Leveraged Short SPY (NYSE: SH) hit the exact same low at 73.00 and has since rallied to 74.40/60, leaving behind a potential near-term Double Bottom. Given the glaring positive momentum divergences that have been developing since 3/23, the Double Bottom at 73.00 could very well represent the (so far) elusive near-term low ahead of a significant upside corrective period. As long as 73.00 remains viable, I will be looking for the SH to climb to fill the gap left behind on yesterday's open, between 75.0 and 7.600 next, possibly on the way to a test of the March-April down trendline, now at 77.00/10.
