Trading the Stocks Cyclical Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarlier this week, the flagship S&P 500 stock index (SPX) officially entered bear-market territory. As it edged past a 20% loss since its all-time high of October 2007, all debate about whether or not a bear really exists was instantly rendered irrelevant. Beyond any doubt we now sojourn in a full-on bear market!

The fearsome reputations of stock bears are well-deserved. During the legendary bear running between January 1973 and October 1974, the SPX lost a sickening 48.2% of its value. In a much more recent specimen, between March 2000 and October 2002 the SPX shed 49.1%. Cyclical bear markets often tend to cut stock prices in half by the time they fully run their courses!

The Real Reasons the US Banking System Lost its Way / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: Unlike Dorothy in " The Wizard of Oz ," the brutalized U.S. banking system will never again return to that comfortable, cozy, and cushy capital place it once happily referred to as "home." But its "Wicked Witch" was its own greed. The curtain has finally been pulled back on the machinery, and the hot air used to pump up the U.S. banking system's version of the Emerald City in the Land of Oz .

For decades, American banks operated on a simple - and nicely profitable - business model: They took in deposits and lent out money.

Investors Should Stay Clear of Traditional Asset Classes / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Originally published on May 5, 2008 on SeekingAlphaBest Financial Markets Analysis Article
Washington continues to manipulate economic data, as it has for several years. The past few Establishment Survey reports confirm the deception of data, as many more jobs were lost than official numbers indicate. A better gauge of economic weakness, in my opinion, is consumer and mortgage late-payment and default rates, since this data is more difficult to manipulate. This is especially true for late credit card payments.

All Broad Equity Indices Are Down / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Richard_Shaw

There is plenty of bad business news out there, including with icons such as GE, AIG, banks of all sorts, municipal bond insurance companies and more.

Consumers are squeezed by energy, food prices, falling home prices and limitations on credit — and municipalities aren't apparently limiting their budget growth (and taxes) in line with their tax payers growth in income.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe reason why Liquidity inflows and outflows is a critical element relative to the market rallying or correcting:

Liquidity inflows and outflows are easily understood by any corporation. When their cash inflows are positive and increasing, they have money to expand and hire. When their cash is outflowing and negative, their businesses contract and they layoff workers.

Are Dark Pools Destined to be the Next Financial Black Hole? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Keith_Fitz-Gerald

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe can almost hear that ominous " Jaws " theme music in the background and can see that huge dorsal fin as it slices threateningly through the water - knowing full well that the real terror is hidden beneath the water's surface.

But this time around, it's not a "Great White" that's sparking our fears; it's a well-capitalized and broadly based series of secret stock exchanges known as " Dark Pools of Liquidity ," "Dark Liquidity," or just "Dark Pools."

Stocks Bear Market Generates Inane Mainstream Commentary / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI am amazed at the absolutely inane commentary from the media about how great it is that we're having a bear market, as if they saw it coming ahead of time.  Now they're talking gibberish about all the buying opportunities out there and how after we've reached the 20% decline level it's  time to back up the truck and load up on stocks.

USAGOLD's Annual Survey of Investment Performance- 12Months to June 2008 / Stock-Markets / Investing

By: Pete_Grant

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGold up 43% - Outshines Wall Street, Main St. Gold continues to shine as one of the best performing asset classes through the first half of 2008, according to the USAGOLD Annual Survey of Investments. Only the CRB index, which of course includes a gold component, outperformed gold itself over the past year. Arguably it was the latest surge in oil prices that allowed the broad measure of commodities to supplant gold from the number one position over the last month of the second quarter.

All Eyes on Crude Oil … As Usual / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Black_Swan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll those investors on and off Wall Street whose focus is on buying stocks must have sweat through a closet full of shirts by now. The outlook for the stock market is not pretty. And when second quarter earnings season arrives, well, things could get even uglier…they say.

It’s a tough job playing cheerleader for a losing team and waiting for a turnaround, even when Tout TV is on your side. Just ask those die-hard Cubs fans about that if you’re wondering. Unfortunately, it seems to us like it could be a while before this turnaround in stocks materializes.

Brazil Stock Market ETF Suffers Serious Technical Damage / Stock-Markets / Brazil

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWithout a doubt, anything commodity-related is getting hammered today -- moreso if it is tied to oil and grains, like Brazil, which has just discovered a huge oil deposit and is a major grain exporter. Let's notice that today's weakness in the iShares Brazil ETF (AMEX: EWZ) has violated key intermediate-term support at 83.00-82.00, which represent both the August 07-July 08 trendline and the sharply rising 200 DMA. Indeed, serious technical damage has been sustained by the EWZ, which projects next into the 75.40/00 target zone.

Central Planners Trying to Mask Imploding Credit Cycle / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith a collapsing credit cycle unfolding before our very eyes, central planners believe they must paint a picture that what's happening is ‘normal' and ‘ordinary', where in the end all will be well. And in spite of evidence this time around things are different, the media would like us to believe that the public thinks this is the case. What's more, the media, led by central planners , would like us to believe the investing public also thinks everything is ‘just fine', with exploding unemployment , collapsing consumer confidence , and an imploding credit cycle nothing to worry about longer-term. All this while problems associated with a collapsing credit cycle are multiplying , with new problems hitting the fan more and more all the time.
