Credit Crisis Trend Exhaustion- Supermarket Tabloids to the Rescue! / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA sure sign that a trend has exhausted itself is when news tabloids start printing stories about economic depression and forecasting stock market crashes.

I can vividly recall some of the U.S. supermarket tabloids that were forecasting a second Great Depression in the wake of the 1998 stock market debacle. The '98 sell-off, which was catalyzed by the Asian currency crisis and the LTCM meltdown, saw the S&P decline some 20% from July-October of '98. About the time that bearish tabloid stories hit the news stands, the stock market had bottomed and was on its way to new highs while the super-charged U.S. economy regained its strength and was running on all cylinders.

Make it a Margin Call: The Change to Fix the Risk / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_Petillo

It would probably be best to talk about what we know. Getting those headlines out of the way will, without a doubt, give us some insight into where we are headed. At least in theory.

Bear Stearns avoided bankruptcy when JP Morgan, who seized a unique opportunity to pick apart the firm for its brokerage business and clearinghouse operations at a price” that, despite being revised upwards from $2 to $10, left most folks inside Wall Street speechless.

How to Fix the Credit Markets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week we will look at what will be a fairly controversial essay by good friend Michael Lewitt of HCM. In light of today's speech by Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson of the re-organization of the regulatory system in the US, Michael suggest we look at what the real problems are before we begin the process of re-arranging the deck chairs on the Titanic. For many, some of what he says will be considered economic heresy. I do not agree with all of it (though I am in solid agreement on most of it), and look forward to talking with him in a few weeks in La Jolla when we are together. But the point of Outside the Box is not to find material that I or you agree with or that makes us comfortable, but something which causes us to think through our own opinions and biases.

Investment Flash: Beware of Money Substitutes / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe panic we suggested would occur in our report last month has enveloped the credit markets .

“When the house of (credit) cards begins to fall in on itself, the trend turns from inflation to deflation . That's when creditors turn their focus from lending to collecting and debtors turn their focus from borrowing to repaying. But by this time there are too many IOUs, and debtors cannot service them, much less repay them. Falling asset values and economic contraction thwart efforts to honor the loans. Debtors begin to default. When that happens, the game is up.” – Bob Prechter, Elliot Wave Theorist

The Bernanke Politburo's Next Big Plan / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article" Instead of just propping up bankrupt banks, the governments should be democratising them - mobilising their assets to stimulate the productive economy, repairing infrastructure, researching and developing new markets, and refitting western economies to combat climate change. " Iain MacWhirter, "The Red Menace"  

The Federal Reserve is presently considering an emergency operation that is so risky it could send the dollar slip-sliding over the cliff. The story appeared in the Financial Times earlier this week and claimed that the Fed was examining the feasibility of buying back hundreds of billions of dollars of mortgage-backed securities (MBS) with public money to restore investor confidence and clear the struggling banks' balance sheets.

Can This Stock Market Rally Last? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: John_Browne

As the markets closed on Friday, March 14th , the $50 billion hedge fund, Carlyle Group, had collapsed, and questions were being asked about the viability of Bear Stearns. Having realized that Bear was close to insolvency, the Treasury and Fed worked overtime during the ensuing weekend to cobble together a bail out scheme that has since calmed the markets and encouraged a tepid rally. The salient question now is whether the rally can last.

Bottomless Financial Sector Bottom / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal exchanges and the 13-hour trading day - The prevailing force-fed sentiment is that the US financial sector has bottomed out, the worst is over, the mechanisms for remedy are here, and time to get back in the water for profound bargains again. Let me rebutt! The financial sector is merely taking a breather in a long death march after the great bond bust and horrific unwind of reckless mortgage creation. Monoline bond insurers are nowhere near properly capitalized to handle upcoming substantial losses, nor are banks with loss reserves. Hundreds of billion$ in overvalued and soon-to-be hit mortgage bonds still have yet to occur. And besides, the housing price decline has not even remotely stabilized.

Stocks Bear Market Notes / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is an argument which might be put forward that, as the bad news is now known and, given that the market looks forward, the worst may be over and we have seen the lows in the industrial equity markets.

This view may well be right, but it is predicated on the assumption that all the bad news is known.

Stock Market Technical's and Fundamentals Remain Weak / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile there is no question stocks are trying to form what market technicians call a double bottom, not much has really changed in recent weeks in terms of market leadership. It is helpful to take a step back and see what is actually happening from both a technical and fundamental perspective when times are uncertain and people are continually asking, "Has the market found a bottom?"

Unwinding of the "Yen Carry Trade" is Bearish for Global Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal equity traders had, for many years, a ready source of funds at almost no interest charge. Traders have been shorting the Yen and using the funds to purchase stocks, currencies and high-yielding securities around the world. However, as of mid-2007, that "free bank account" is becoming more and more costly. The Yen carry trade is starting to unwind with very negative results for stocks.

Dow Transports Signaling More Bullish Times Ahead / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The iShares DJ Transportation Index ETF (AMEX: IYT) continues to act as though oil prices are considerably lower than $101/bbl and that the U.S. economy is hitting on more cylinders than currently perceived. Let's note with interest that crude oil prices ENDED their prior correction ($86) during the third week of January, which also coincided with the corrective low in the IYT at 71.62, and since then oil prices have climbed to a $111.80 high, while the IYT has continued to climb as well.

Media Ignores China Stock Market's Precipitous 40% Drop! / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI received an email from someone watching CNBC's Cramer last night.  He said that Cramer was bullish about yesterday's market movement because the financials were leading yesterday's up move. 

I won't say that the banking sector is devoid of strength ... because yesterday, 69% of the sector's stocks had a Relative Strength reading of 50 or higher.  31% had a Relative Strength reading below 50.

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGiven current uncertainty and volatility, it is more difficult than usual to project an outlook for the global stock markets 12 months forward, therefore to be able to generate an outlook there is first a need to arrive at key assumptions that will impact on stock prices going forward before I turn my attention to the technical picture contained within the stock charts.

Bear Stearns Saga / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Regent_Markets

Just when you think a trend has been established, the market throws you a wrench and totally changes the whole picture. Before the markets even opened, the Bear Stearns saga hit its highest note, with JP Morgan offering $2 per share for Bear Stearns, and the latter accepting, mainly because the only other option was Bankruptcy.

Stock Market Bulls vs Bears- The Battle Rages On! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Michael_Nystrom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you're reading this, you're probably like me in this respect: Watching the market try to make up its mind is fun, the same way that watching a game is. The best part about this game is that you don't have to wait until Sunday – it is always on, and there is no shortage of pre- and post game analysis. True, it is always the same two teams – the Bulls vs. Bears, but each day they go at it with a vengeance, and recently the games have been nail biters! Furthermore (and perhaps the very best part) is that there is absolutely nothing illegal about placing bets on your favorite team for both fun and profit. In fact, you're encouraged to do just that.
