Global Stock Market Forecasts and Outlook for 2008 / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

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.

Nasdaq Breaks Out from Base Formation Whilst Onslaught Against Gold Continues / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Q's emerged from a three-week base formation today, breaking above key near-term resistance at 43.40/50, and then following through to attack the next important resistance plateau at 44.50/70. My overall pattern and oscillator work indicate that the Q's are poised to climb t 46.00 in the upcoming hours/days, and at that point we will find out if the price structure has established lows for the year.

The End Of The Financial World As We Know It?  / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe end of the world as we know it is coming. That's right – according to the flamboyantly named Ambrose Evans-Pritchard – where it's likely a challenge just attempting to live up to his name – life as we know it is about to change – big time . And while I in fact agree with this assessment in terms of inevitabilities, at the same time putting this sentiment together with a perceived widening acceptance financials are all toast, it appears time to put on our contrarian's hat again, especially with the business cycle for financials set to turn positive in mere days. This means based on a growing number of pivotal factors (sentiment, cycles, and technicals), and as evidenced by the price action in the market over the past few days, we are growing increasingly skeptical stocks will swoon much further in the immediate future, not before an exhaustion of negative forces set for this month cause a sharp reversal higher.

New Recovery Upleg Signalled for Semi-Conductor Holder Stocks ETF / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Breakout above 30.00 for the Semiconductor HLDRs (AMEX: SMH) is a very constructive sign and should signal the emergence of a new recovery upleg off of the January low at 26.54 that projects to the 31.50-32.00 target zone next. Components ADI, INTC, AMAT, NSM, among others, exhibit very positive chart patterns that should help propel the SMH higher in the days ahead.

Stock Market In the Process of Making Important Low / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Election years that fall in the 8th year of the Decennial pattern call for consolidation in the early part of the year followed by a strong finish. But the 6-yr cycle which is scheduled to bottom in late Summer/early Fall could also play a restraining role, followed by an eventual bull market top in 2009-2010.

SPX: Intermediate trend - an extended intermediate-term consolidation is in the process of ending and may already have ended.

Words from the Investment Wise for the Week that Was (23rd March)-Part2 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Continued from Part 1
Ambrose Evans-Pritchard (Telegraph): Foreign investors veto Fed rescue
“As feared, foreign bond holders have begun to exercise a collective vote of no confidence in the devaluation policies of the US government. The Federal Reserve faces a potential veto of its rescue measures.

“Asian, Mid East and European investors stood aside at last week's auction of 10-year US Treasury notes. ‘It was a disaster,' said Ray Attrill from 4castweb. ‘We may be close to the point where the uglier consequences of benign neglect towards the currency are revealed.'

Words from the Investment Wise for the Week that Was (23rd March)- Part 1 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePhew – what a tumultuous week! Once again, the fall-out of the subprime mess had a lot to do with it. For some variety, however, it was not only financial's that were in the limelight, but also commodities that corrected sharply.

Unrelated to St Patrick's Day, the week started off with a sense of fear for a market meltdown after it had been announced over the weekend that the Federal Reserve of New York facilitated the sale of Bear Stearns (BSC) to JP Morgan Chase (JPM) for the princely sum of $2.00 per share.

Market Update: Da Numbas! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Dominick

S&P - You didn't need to be a bull back in January to buy the exact low in the Socgen situation and we did, and you didn't have to necessarily be long term bullish to do it again this week. All it really took was to be unbiased at the very moment of that low, which is impossible to do if you are dancing from free chatroom to chatroom looking for someone else's trade or idea. Nor can you do it by listening to other services that have been consistently bearish for the last few years.

Stock Market Volatility Peaks Near Bear Market Lows / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: It is likely last Monday's low will mark the low point for the next several weeks.

Short Term
Last Monday there were 477 new lows on the NASDAQ, about the same as there were near the lows of last August, but substantially fewer than the 877 at the January low. Every day for the remainder of the week had less than half as many new lows as Monday.

Credit Crisis Thoughts- Fed Bear Stearns Action Saved Trillions in Losses / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

  • Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThoughts on the Continuing Crisis
  • Margin Clerks of the World, Unite!
  • Where Do We Find New Sources of Credit?
  • In Defense of Alan Greenspan
  • What Now for Gold, Oil, Etc?

My essay in Outside the Box last Monday seemed to ignite a lot of response in the blogosphere. My basic contention was that the Fed had to act to facilitate the sale of Bear to prevent a meltdown in the markets. Many agreed, but others said Bear should have been left to hang, pointing out that a thorough cleansing is what is needed. Others scoffed at the notion that allowing Bear to fail would have created a massive stock market sell-off. This week we will reexamine that concept, look at the drop in gold and commodities, come to the defense of Alan Greenspan (which should be food for a little more controversy), and think through to the end game of the economic crisis.

A Reply to John Mauldin's Outside The Box - Let's Get Real About Bear / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mick_Phoenix

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAn Occasional Letter From The Collection Agency - I have been, and still am, a long time fan of John Mauldin (JM). I enjoy his take on the bigger picture, even if there are areas I disagree with, from time to time. Generally my disagreements are more to do with the severity of a particular problem or the benefits of a highlight. For instance, JM might allude to a recession but think that it will be mild and happen over a certain time scale, fitting his “muddle through” model. I would agree with the talk of recession but not necessarily the depth, timing or effect. You get the point.

Continuation Point for Equities as Credit Markets Continue Deflating / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Michael_J_Panzner

For the bulls, the events of the past several days have marked a major turning point for the U.S. equity market.

Share prices staged their first weekly gain in a month. The Federal Reserve pulled out all stops to save the banking system. Financial shares bounced hard. And inflation fears eased as commodity prices fell back to earth.

Stock Market Crosscurrents & Miracles / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the close one week ago on March 14, 2008 , the equity markets were literally sitting on the edge of the abyss. The short-term T-bill rate had collapsed to just over 1% while the Discount rate was sitting at 3.5%. My Fed model suggested that another healthy cut was imminent and with the spread between the 3-month T-bill rate and the Discount rate at over 2% the Fed was forced to take action. On Sunday night, March 16, 2008, as the overseas markets opened they began to plummet, making it obvious that we were indeed sitting on the edge of the abyss. In a surprise, or should I say desperate, meeting on Sunday night the Fed cut .25% and on Monday the equity markets initially sold off sharply, but then recovered and closed the day marginally positive. On Tuesday the Fed cut the Discount rate another .75% and the Dow Jones Industrials closed up 420 points.

Stock Market Bottoming Process Continues- Good News Ahead / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors have had to endure a tremendous onslaught of horrendous news that has shaken the financial sector to the core. One pundit likened the past few months to flying a hang glider in a hurricane. That's how it has felt to all of us as bad news begat more bad news…which in turn drove the financial markets lower.

The good news is that the winds have now diminished and the dark clouds are on the verge of lifting. It's time now to focus on the positive things to come instead of dwelling on the negatives of yester-year. That's the message the stock market is telling to anyone who will listen.

Stocks Bear Market- How Bad Can It Get? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo beat the market you need to invest with the trend. The stock market is down and continues to fall almost every day. As of March 19, 2008 the DJIA is down 8.8% for the year, the NASDAQ is down 16.7%, the S&P 500 is down 11.6% and the Russell 2000 is down 13.3%. Most investors are looking at their portfolios and they are very unhappy. The initial problems with the mortgage market started this tumble. Will it continue to get worse and is it spilling over into other parts of the U.S. economy? So how bad can it get?

Homebuilders ETF Approaching Resistance / Stock-Markets / Housing Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

I need to give you a heads up on the Homebuilders ETF (AMEX: XHB), which is nearing a confrontation with major resistance between 22.7 and 23.30. Let's notice that the sharply declining 200 DMA at 23.09 is right in the middle of that range and presents a major test of the bottoming/recovery process in the sector. However, based on my near AND intermediate-term technical work, the XHB will hurdle the above-mentioned resistance zone on the way to 25.00.
