Why Falling VIX Could Mean NO Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe answer to a subscriber's puzzling question: "The VIX goes down, and the S&P moves up.  The VIX goes up, and the S&P goes down.  But, sometimes the VIX goes down and instead of going up, the S&P moves in a sideways trading range .  Can you tell me why?"  Thanks, DJ

Thanks for the question, it is an important one because if you don't understand why, then you will not trust the VIX (Volatility Index) as an indicator.   Investors need to trust their indicators, and when they can't trust them, they need to know why.

Gold and Stock Market Bear Attack Warning / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBroad Market Outlook: - Friday the market closed mixed with light volume due to the holiday season. I always use the DOW (DIA) as a market indicator for the overall strength. The chart below shows a simple chart on where the market stands. Currently all the moving averages are trending down or sideways as the market trades at resistance. Prices have been drifting higher on light volume which is not a good sign for the bulls (longs). We are at a point now where the market is going to make a nice run higher or possibly another leg lower.

Zero Interest Rates, Plunging Bond Yields, Slumping Oil Price, Stocks Santa Rally? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Americans have always been able to handle austerity and even adversity. Prosperity [greed!] is what is doing us in,” said James Reston , former New York Times journalist and Pulitzer Prize winner.

Another chapter in dealing with the current credit and economic adversity was written on Tuesday when the US Federal Reserve announced a no-holds-barred set of measures in a determined attempt to fix the broken credit machine, revive economic activity and stem the deflationary tide.

Stock, Commodities, and Bond Markets 2008 Review / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Richard_Shaw

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA high altitude view of global markets can be gleaned from monitoring a relatively small group of broad index funds. We think these ten asset categories and related proxy ETFs, provide a quick summary overview of world markets.

Certainly, more granularity could be more helpful, but these ten major asset categories are a good place to start.

Stock Market, Gold and Oil Fall on Auto Bailout News / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGM and Chrysler will get $13.4 billion in loans. General Motors Corp. and Chrysler LLC will get $13.4 billion in initial government loans to keep operating in exchange for substantially restructuring their businesses under a rescue plan announced by President George W. Bush. The money will be drawn from the Troubled Asset Relief Program set up to bail out financial institutions. An additional $4 billion would be allocated in February provided the second half of TARP's authorized $700 billion is released by Congress. The funds would allow GM and Chrysler to keep operating until March.

How to Play the Obama Infrastructure Building Boom / Stock-Markets / Infrastructure

By: Justice_Litle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. infrastructure is crumbling... trillions could be spent in the next few years... and President-elect Obama has told the states to “Use It or Lose it.” Here's how to profit. If you drive on U.S. roads, you probably don't need to be told – the country's infrastructure is in pretty bad shape.

As a nation, Americans like to look forward. We prefer to spend our money building new things (rather than fixing up old things). Issues like repair and maintenance are back burnered for other priorities in state and federal budgets. Over time, the cost of neglect rises.

Extreme Technical Levels Point to Stocks and Crude Oil Snapback Rally / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs we speak, the VIX is trading BELOW its 11/04 low at 44.25, which COULD imply that the e-SPH (890.25) and cash S&P 500, including the SPDRs (AMEX: SPY), are about to take off to the upside. As I noted on Thursday while the VIX was at 44.62 and the e-SPH at 903.50: "Purely from a chart perspective, the pattern that has developed-- and its near-future implications-- suggests that the VIX has lower values directly ahead-- possibly acutely lower when compared to where it has come from since late-October.

Stock, Commodities and Currency Futures Markets Analysis 19th December / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe March NASDAQ 100 was lower overnight as it extends Thursday's decline. Stochastics and the RSI are overbought and are turning neutral signaling that sideways trading is possible near- term. If March renews the rally off November's low, the reaction high crossing at 1321.75 is the next upside target. Closes below the 20-day moving average crossing at 1181.77 would confirm that a short-term top has been posted.

Despite the Crash, Stock Markets are Not Too Cheap to Buy / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: For many investors, a low Price/Earnings (P/E) ratio is a sign of value. But don't you bet on it – at least, not yet.

According to Michael T. Darda , chief economist for MKM Partners LLC , analysts have overestimated earnings by an average of 30% to 35% in the last three recessions. For millions of investors who use low P/E ratios as a litmus test for selecting their investments, that's going to be a rather unpleasant shock.

Stock Markets See Red Despite Collapse in Crude Oil Prices / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS equities finished down yesterday as various pieces of bad news emerged. GE's giant financial arm GECC has been downgraded to negative by S&P . Also there's a delay in the decision by the US administration whether to bail out US automakers although there is speculation that an announcement could come as early as today. On top of all of this was a further drop in oil prices below $36 per barrel (the low since June 2004) which weighed on energy stocks, despite the 2.46M barrel output cut by OPEC. So consumer joy in Dublin, Washington and London = panic in Moscow, Tehran and Caracas. The only good news for investors was the decline in equity volatility with the VIX index dropping to its lowest level since October 3rd.

Credit Collapse Financial Market Impacts and Implications / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Doug_Wakefield

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Big, the Bull, and the Bankers - Over the last few years, in my search to understand how we arrived at this historic juncture, I have been confronted with how ignorant the general public is regarding the history of money. But, after five years of researching and writing about this period, I still find it difficult to understand the day-to-day machinations of things like Collateral Debt Obligations, Credit Default Swaps, and Currency Swaps. So, the public's confusion is understandable. Bundling hundreds of debt products and layering them one on top of other, as collateral, is just too complex. But, I am not alone in this.

By: Mike_Whitney

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEver since the two Bear Stearns hedge funds defaulted 17 months ago triggering a global financial crisis, the Federal Reserve has been busy putting out one fire after another. Fed chief Ben Bernanke has slashed interest rates to .25 percent, handed out billions in emergency funding to teetering insurance companies and mortgage lenders, and provided $8.3 trillion in loan guarantees to keep the financial system from collapsing.
