Regulation of FInancial Markets - The Pursuit of Principles / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Paul_Petillo

While many of us have been focusing on mortgage meltdowns, stock surges and inflation indicators, several of our distinguished financial leaders have been looking for ways to improve the marketplace.

Using the argument that rules tend to squash innovation and do little to lure the rest of the globe to our financial shores, the call for more principles and less regulation is quietly making its way out of the backroom and closer to reality.

The NEXT foreign stock market to blast off ... / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

Martin Weiss writes: My global team and I aren't in a race to pick the world's leading stock market.

But right now, the star performer happens to be my personal favorite: Brazil. (And soon, the spotlight could shift to another market I'll tell you about in just a moment.)

Back in January, I told you Brazil was primed to be another "China-like miracle ." I explained why Brazil is one of the greatest beneficiaries of the China boom .

And I told you how Brazil's ethanol explosion would help propel the country even further.

Plus, two weeks ago, I gave you a heads up that Brazil would soon be upgraded by a major U.S. rating agency.

A 3-dimensional approach to technical analysis
Cycles - Breadth - Price projections

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Long-Term Trend - The 12-year cycle is still in its up-phase but, as we approach its mid-point some of its dominant components are topping and could lead to a severe correction over the next few months.

SPX: Intermediate Trend - With the price reaching the preferred target area, the rally from 3/14 should be coming to an end.

Stocks & Commodity Markets Analysis - Houston , We Have LIFT OFF! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

Can you believe we're just a day's rally away from the 2000 high? I'm sure plenty of investors out there would rather forget about that time, as they were probably buying only to sell out during the severe decline going into the 2002 lows. Now they're wondering if they should be back in. Well, there's thirty-plus points to go and lots of mistakes can be buried in Elliott land as if they never existed.

Some say that controlling emotions is an important part of trading. I say it could be the most important part. The two most destructive emotions for trading are Fear and Greed. I'm sure both have been wreaking havoc lately and are about to kick in on an even more massive scale.

The Sock Market Raging Bulls / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Joseph_Russo

Two weeks ago, we shared with readers a perception that equity markets were bullish like no tomorrow . That general assessment has held course thus far. However, intermediate level timing models are suggesting that equity markets may be fast approaching a juncture of pivotal import. If so, many broad market indices will soon elect one of three critical paths in the days and weeks ahead. Our continued diligence monitoring minor degree trends, together with intra-day price structures; enables us to anticipate which of these critical paths each market is in the process of adopting.

Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report - 19th May 07 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: The blue chip indices hit multi year or all time highs last week.

Short Term
Some of the small cap short term indicators appeared to have bottomed and turned upward last week. Seasonally the last week and a half in May have been strong, so it appears likely the recent weakness in the small caps is ending.

The Dow Theory…..Did it Fail? / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

As the Industrials topped out in 2000 and plunged nearly 38 percent into the 2002 low, every indication, according to Dow theory, was that an extended secular bear market had begun. Also, because of the Dow theory phasing along with the normal bull and bear market relationships, as the rally from the 2002 low began, indications were that this was the rally separating Phase I from Phase II of a much longer-term bear market. So, what went wrong? In this article I want to examine the chain of events that have transpired since the 2002 low and in doing so look at where we are and the lessons that have been learned.

Elliott Wave on the Dow Jones Index - Ending Diagonal Pattern / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dan_Stinson

Short Term Forecast

The DOW and S&P500 are in ending diagonal patterns, indicating that the rally is near completion in a terminal pattern. We should see further choppy upside to complete the pattern, but when ending diagonals complete they are followed by a sharp decline to the starting point of the pattern. The ending diagonal patterns began on May 1st, so we should see a sharp decline to the price action near this date. We then would expect to see a corrective rally in wave 2 up not to make a new high, before further substantial downside.

Gold, Silver and The Dow Jones Index / Stock-Markets / Gold & Silver

By: Investmentscore.com

This article examines the current Silver market, Gold market and the Dow Jones Industrial average from a big picture perspective. As always our material is kept simple and easy to understand as we think simplicity is the secret to success.

A picture speaks a thousand words. We think a major macro market trend has been underway since about 2000, and this trend will not stop until an extreme is met in the direction traveled. This trend will take breaks, it will not proceed in a straight line, but ultimately we believe it will continue in the direction it is headed.

Recipe for a Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Clif_Droke

Over the past few days I've received quite a few nervous inquiries from investors who worry about the potential for the stock market to crash sometimes between now and year end.  Part of this fear is founded on what is known as the Year Seven Phenomenon, which says that the seventh year of the decade usually sees a substantial stock market decline or even a crash, a ‘la 1987 and 1997. 

The combined influence of the mythology surrounding the Year Seven Phenomenon is often used by perma-bear newsletter writers into scaring their readers away from the stock market during the seventh year of any given decade.  A reflection of this latent fear, which all investors have had at one time or other, is found in the following e-mail I received recently: “I am still scared about that history of all years ending in 6 & 7 suffering one 20% correction since 1856.”

Casino Royale, China and the ghosts of 1929 and POP Goes the Bubble? / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Ty_Andros

No matter where you turn for your financial news, one item regularly makes it way to the front page. It is the amazing bull markets in Shanghai , and Shenzhen , China . These phenomenal bull runs reflect a number of situations emerging from China . But make no mistake, to glean important economic signals from the price action and say it reflects the economy of China is not one of them.

They are casinos, pure and simple. Up until recently they could have crashed and the Chinese economy would not have sneezed, two years ago stock brokers in China, were viewed as they were in America in 1982, their names were mud as anything you gave them quickly turned into mud. My wife is currently visiting China , as she should as she is CHINESE. She just left Shenzhen and is now in Chang Chun, with family visits in Beijing and Shanghai still on the schedule.

Will The Stock Market Ever Stop Going Up? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Investors who want to beat the market are wondering if the recent rise will ever stop going up. The stock market is experiencing unheard of price appreciation that is breaking all times highs for the DJIA, the Transports and the Utilities. The DJIA is up 23 of the last 26 days, a move that has never occurred before. The DJIA did move up 22 of 25 days in 1955.

Also, the S&P 500 is close to the all time high and the NASDAQ is reaching highs not seen for several years. Is this a short term situation or will the markets continue to surprise to the upside for some time to come? According to Mark Hulbert of the Hulbert Financial Digest , this event is not a sign of anything in particular. It is just noise in the random walk down Wall Street. Let's look at some other factors that might shed more light on the markets.

Why I'm still bullish on China ... / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: Most of the investors I talk to these days are pretty pleased with the performance of their stock and mutual fund portfolios. After all, the Dow Jones Industrials started the year at 12,463 and marched right through 13,000.

That's pretty good, right? Well, I've never met a profit I didn't like. However, anybody that had some of their portfolio invested in China could have done much, much better. In fact, they could have done up to 10 times better!

Nolte Notes - Another Stock Market Correction? / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The equity market has, over the decades, been called many things – among them manic-depressive. If you're unsure of a good working definition, just check out the activity at the end of the week. On Thursday the trade deficit and retail sales figures were released that indicated we imported much more than exported, which will cause a severe revision lower to our economic growth estimates in the first quarter.

A Tale of Two Cities : Strong Stock Market and Weak Economy / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Captain_Hook

Below is an excerpt from a commentary that originally appeared at Treasure Chests for the benefit of subscribers on Thursday, April 24 th , 2007.

All three, the Dow, Transports, and Utilities all closed at record highs on Friday. This is all very good from a Dow Theory perspective, providing confirmation the stock market is in a strong up trend. But how can this be with the economy in the States on the fritz? How can this be with real estate in the dumper and the threat of a credit crunch (a steepening yield curve ) at the same time? Answer: It's a tale of two cities, that of Beijing with the Summer Olympics to prepare for next year; and New York, the center of Western influence, where bankers conspire to inflate the US housing slump away. Combined, these two forces, forces that both demand rapid money supply expansion, are culminating to create the biggest asset and debt bubbles in history, bubbles that when they pop, there will be no coming back for a very long time.
