The US Debt and Yen Carry Trade Unwinding Time Bomb is About to Explode! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSynthetic Dollar Short - Richard Russell and other gold writers talked about a ‘synthetic dollar short' based on debt in 04/5. The thesis is that overly indebted entities will face a day when their loans are called in, and the demand for dollars will rise dramatically, as assets are liquidated to pay off positions/debt.

The often discussed Yen carry trade has a similar mechanism, where lots of Yen have been borrowed for the last 10 years and invested in various markets that yield more than the half percent Japanese interest rates. Big and small investors have taken advantage of this more or less free money, riding the interest rate bonus with little risk – up to now.

Global Impact of the US Debt Implosion / Stock-Markets / US Debt

By: John_Lee

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe have written a series articles dating back to March 2007 tracking the US debt implosion, which are available here . The story started out in early 2007 with the blowout of Novastar and New Century, the multi-billion non-bank intermediary mortgage brokers. In summer of 2007 we witnessed the collapse of American Home Mortgage, America's largest subprime mortgage issuing bank. Then we saw a series of subprime write-offs amounting to hundreds of $ billions by banks, funds, and institutions around the world. Then the trouble moved up in the chain of the mortgage complex, with Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac announcing surprising losses.

Corporate Income Tax - Stock Market Investors Enemy Number Two / Stock-Markets / Investing

By: Steve_Selengut

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Investor's Eye view of politics is a simplistic, practical, dot-connecting approach to sorting things out so that win/win change can be considered. Real World politics is not concerned with such things, and that is one of the most serious problems facing investors today. As outlined in Investment Politics 2008, there are at least ten issues that require government action if we are to maintain our competitive position in the World Economy. Most of these are interrelated and need to be acted upon simultaneously... thus causing a major political dilemma.

Greenspan's Grand Design To Serve the Money Trust - Financial Tsunami Part III / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Long-Term Greenspan Agenda
Seven years of Volcker monetary “shock therapy” had ignited a payments crisis across the Third World . Billions of dollars in recycled petrodollar debts loaned by major New York and London banks to finance oil imports after the oil price rises of the 1970's, suddenly became non-payable.

The stage was now set for the next phase in the Rockefeller financial deregulation agenda. It was to come in the form of a revolution in the very nature of what would be considered money—the Greenspan “New Finance” Revolution.

Stock Market and Interest Rates Forecast 2008 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIntroduction
The first three weeks of the year started with a BANG and this is set to continue as the public servants wrestle with the consequences of their poor policies. And, instead of creating policies of wealth creation, the result to their decades-long policies of currency debasement and creeping socialism: “Temporary” stimulus plans, front and center with the various public servants trying to outbid each other as to the size of the package.

Expert Views on the Stock Market Credit Crisis and Global Economy / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we do something a little different in our Outside the Box. Every weekend I get a very information-filled blog called Investment Postcards from Cape Town ( http://www.investmentpostcards .com ) by Dr. Prieur du Plessis. In it he highlights what he thinks is the most important portion of the writings of 10 to 15 analysts from around the world on the state of the economy and investing, and summarizes the news and data. I find it very useful, as Prieur generally finds a lot of interesting pieces that I miss and go on to read in my effort to stay on top of the markets. You can subscribe on your own if you like by activating the subscription option on the blog.

Use Short Bear Funds to Hedge Crashing Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the introduction of the bear fund, analysts and investors have another very valuable tool to review the markets that was not available before. The use of fundamental analysis can provide investors with an inside look at the financial health of a company, its management skills and spot potential difficulties for the organization in the near future. Technical analysis allows the investor to review large numbers of securities, in different time frames, for profit opportunities, but normally only from one perspective; the buy side. The bear fund offers that mirrored image of a security that when used properly, can greatly expands the investors vantage point and provide valuable data that is not available through simple fundamental reviews or only buy-side technical analysis.

Retrospective: The Mysterious Case of Massive Liquidity / Stock-Markets / Money Supply

By: Mack_Frankfurter

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePerhaps when a man has special knowledge and special powers like my own, it rather encourages him to seek a complex explanation when a simpler one is at hand. ” — Sherlock Holmes, The Adventure of the Abbey Grange (1904)

It now seems so long ago, but it is only a year since global equity markets were entrenched in a relentless march upward, spurred by the “world growth story” and a wave of global liquidity. U.S. and European stock markets gained double-digit returns in 2006 while the emerging markets did even better. Alongside the upward trajectory came a remarkable decline in volatility with the VIX, known as the “fear gauge,” falling to 13-year lows in November and December that same year.

Dow Jones Stock Market Diamond Pattern Formation / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAt first glance at the title above, because of the proliferation of Exchange Traded Funds (ETF's), with Dow Diamonds one of the most highly traded examples, one might think a discussion on the related subject matter is what we intend to talk about here today. Of course if you were an experienced market technician, and have been following the trade of late, you might have known right away this is not the case at all. You would have known what we are talking about is a technical formation in the trade that acts as a pivot at tops, usually in relation to larger degree trading ranges. And you also may have known that the Dow is almost finished tracing out another diamond at present, with the timing and circumstances when compared to the 1999 / 2000 sequence similar enough to take notice.

US Stock Markets - Near Term Bottom or Waterfall Crash? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Joseph_Russo

Hauntingly Familiar
Here we are once again, suddenly embroiled amid a frenzy of financial crisis, and looming bail-out interventions.

The jury is still out as to whether or not this crisis will turn out to be “the big one” that will take down the entire house of cards.

Stocks Bull Market Ahead: Indicators Read Warp Speed Eight / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Joseph_Dancy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith talk of a serious U.S. economic recession now being commonly heard on every corner, and with the massive write-offs now being taken in the financial sector soon to be followed by massive layoffs, it is a difficult time to be invested in the market. Volatility has been extreme, and we expect that will remain so for the first quarter of 2008. But our indicators point to the fact that later in the year we could see some very positive trends for investors.

Keep in mind that last year was a very poor year for small capitalization stocks. In fact, in general the smaller the company the worse the stock performed.

Stock Market Wake-up Call / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

Two years ago I made a call that anyone who's read this newsletter long enough will remember or at least have heard about. In July 2006, with the market at multi-month lows, TTC got long the S&P futures for a move to 1360 that seemed incredible at the time – certainly no one else was seeing it, let alone trading it. But, by October the S&P futures had rapidly advanced 200 points and my target was hit.

US Stock Markets Crash and Burn Whilst The Fed Fiddles / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI hate to bash Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke, but I'm going to for a few pages. Here's the deal. The current economic threat is screaming for an aggressive inflation solution. Inflation comes from the Fed. Forget about the inflation the Fed has caused over the past 90 years, and the doubling of the money supply to goose markets for the past eight. A lot of that was dead wrong, a theft of our children's future, coming at an unnecessary time.

Bullish for Stock Markets When Economy Hits Bottom / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSixteen years ago, I was fortunate to work on what I still consider to be one of the best guides to understanding the stock market for US investors: “Market Timing for the Nineties” by Stephen Leeb.

At first glance, this book is dated automatically by its title. Its basic premise, however, applies to any decade. In fact, it's more relevant than ever here in 2008, where recession worries have taken over the market mood.

Financial Sector Crash Continues with Gigantic Bad Debt Write-downs / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMike Larson writes: The stock market is in a state of near-panic. The Dow tanked another 307 points yesterday, continuing a string of triple-digit declines that have marred the new year. The latest action is proof positive that the credit problems that began in the housing and home mortgage market are spreading out in concentric circles.

They're forcing builders to cut back furiously on home construction. They're causing companies to slash jobs. They're weakening the broader economy, helping drive losses on credit cards, auto loans, and other products higher.

Bush's Election Year Tax Cut Gimmick as Wall Street Tumble Continues / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe looming economic recession is getting “deer-in-the-headlights” recognition by the politicians in Washington . The unfortunate response is to offer “sound byte” solutions rather than real economic stimulus. The Bush administration and the presidential candidates are all vying for who can offer the most attractive stimulus to voters rather than offer the best solution for a healthy economy. The Wall Street Journal offers some insight into the dilemma that we face.
