Stock, Commodities and Currency Futures Markets Analysis / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe December NASDAQ 100 was higher due to short covering overnight as it consolidated some of Wednesday's decline. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold, diverging but are bearish signaling that additional weakness is possible near-term. Closes below March's low crossing at 1703.75 would open the door for a possible test of weekly support crossing at 1527.12 later this fall. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing at 1809.97 are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted. The September NASDAQ 100 was up 23.00. pts. at 1670.00 as of 5:55 AM CST. First resistance is broken support marked by March's low crossing at 1703.75. Second resistance is the 10-day moving average crossing at 1735.52. First support is Wednesday's low crossing at 1639.75. Second support is weekly support crossing at 1527.12. Overnight action sets the stage for a higher opening by December NASDAQ 100 when the day session begins later this morning.

Drowning Fed Swimming Against the Credit Crisis Tide / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: If there's one lesson you can take away from this financial crisis, it's this: Whenever the U.S. Federal Reserve squares off against the financial markets, it ends up as the loser.

In recent weeks, I've written several articles suggesting that the credit crisis isn't over and detailed the three indicators that led me to this conclusion - despite what the politicians, the pundits and all the other so-called "experts" would have you believe.

By: Michael_Pento

Despite the incessant, nauseating calls for a bottom in real estate and banks, financial firms now find themselves in their most vulnerable conditions since the credit crisis began last summer.

Comrade Bernanke and the Socialist Republic of the United States / Stock-Markets / Nationalization

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy nationalizing nearly 80% of AIG for $85 billion, the Fed is doing a lot more than simply flushing taxpayer money down the toilet.  The greater wrong is allowing the agency that has the power to print money to take control of a private enterprise, especially without the approval of the company's shareholders.  The move represents the largest lurch toward socialism that this country has ever seen, and signals the end of the vibrancy of America's once vaunted free market economy.  Since there is no limit to the amount of money the Fed can create, there is no limit to the number of assets they can acquire.

Financial Markets Fear and Uncertainty Remain After AIG Bailout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The U.S. government seized control of American International Group Inc. -- one of the world's biggest insurers -- in an $85 billion deal that signaled the intensity of its concerns about the danger a collapse could pose to the financial system. The step marks a dramatic turnabout for the federal government, which had been strongly resisting overtures from AIG for an emergency loan or some intervention that would prevent the insurer from falling into bankruptcy. Just last weekend, the government essentially pulled the plug on Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., allowing the big investment bank to go under instead of giving it financial support."

Nasdaq Q's Signaling Technical Bottom / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In a "normal" market environment, if the Q's exhibited the current technical set-up that shows a glaring positive momentum divergence, the form of a completed downleg from the 8/15 high at 48.57 into the AM's low at 41.41, and a rally (today) that has subdivided into what I interpret as a bullish "recovery form," I would be very enticed to enter a new long position. In fact, our model portfolio is long based on the explained technical set-up. HOWEVER, we all know that this is not a normal market.

Stock Markets Comparison Against the 1930's Depression / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnalog Comparisons - The term analog is rooted in the word analogy , which for our purposes is being used with reference to an analog signal measuring a variable signal that is continuous (similar) in amplitude and time. In terms of analyzing the financial markets, and how price movements have a tendency to repeat in terms of pattern (amplitude) and time, it is this understanding that was the primary precept in the work of W. D. Gann , which to this day remains THE comprehensive / definitive template to unlocking the mystery of how markets work. The primary understanding then, is that price movements in markets have a tendency to repeat in pattern and time.

The Death of Wall Street- Protect Yourself from the Banks / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Stathis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSearching for Sanity
Wall Street's business model is broken. The high stakes game of Russian Roulette which Wall Street never seemed to lose, is taking them down one by one. Commercial banks aren't in much better shape either. In fact, the business model of the entire financial system is broken. And the pain is only going to get worse.

Stocks Bear Market Risk and Gold Bottoming / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTuesday likely will be another pivotal day for equities, with Goldman Sachs earnings due out before the opening bell, and at 2:15 PM ET, the FOMC decision. Some people already are calling for a rate cut of 50 bps (to 1.50%) in order, I suspect, to allay investor fears in the aftermath of the Fed refusing to throw more money at companies with ugly balance sheets and bad debts.

Credit Crisis Developments Explained - China Cut Short-Term Interest Rates / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Fredrick_William

There appears to be a good deal of opacity in what the Fed has said on Sunday regarding a broadening of the collateral it is willing to hold on short-term emergency loans to primary dealers. The exotic financial instruments created this week-end by the Fed are very difficult to price. The effects are less contained than in the past and they are larger given that they emanate from the subprime crisis and directly affect the net worth of households.

Lehman's Bankruptcy the Ultimate Wall Street Derivatives Defaults Nightmare / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin D. Weiss writes: In the wake of Lehman's demise, Fed Chairman Bernanke and Treasury Secretary Paulson will try to put out the word that it's no great trauma.

But it's a lie and they know it. If they openly admitted that the Lehman collapse will paralyze Wall Street, torpedo the stock market and sink the economy, they'd have to pony up $100 billion or more to support it. Instead, their agenda was to push big banks to put up the money. And they failed to do so.

Stock Markets Fizzle Out After Freddie and Fannie Bailout Rally / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

A week that showed so much promise ended up being a huge let down. A lot of ink was spent on the take over of Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae by the US government, and it allowed equity markets around the world to open the first trading day up 3%. This sadly didn't last, as traders realized quickly that this take over was akin to putting a band-aid over a third degree burn; it was not a long term solution
