The Next Financial Tsunami is Breaking Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac and US Mortgage Debt / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe announcement by US Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson together with Federal Reserve chief Bernanke, that the US Government will bailout the two largest guarantors of housing mortgage debt—the Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac—far from calming financial markets, has confirmed what we have said repeatedly in this space: The Financial Tsunami which began in August 2007 in the relatively small “sub-prime” high risk US mortgage securitization market, far from being over, is only gathering momentum.

Consumer Discretionary Spending Sector Leads Stock Market Tops and Bottoms / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe spending habits of the largest single element of the economy can provide important information as to the major peaks and troughs of the stock market. The consumer, which equals about 2/3rds of the economy, plays a vital role in the business cycle. The normal contraction and expansion of the economy often requires the consumer to shift their spending to reflect the current state of the economy. This shifting of spending habits between discretionary and staples provides valuable clues to the major peaks and lows of the stock market.

Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac Crisis Means Faster Decline of Foreign Currency Inflows / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlmost 4 months to the day after the Fed backed the JP Morgan rescue of Bear Stearns, the Fed and the US Treasury intervene to provide a 3-part rescue plan for US Government Sponsored Enterprises Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac. The US Treasury will increase its existing $2.25 bln lines of credit to the two entities, and will assume temporary authority to purchase shares in their equity if the need arose. The Federal Reserve will extend emergency borrowing via the "discount window" to the two entities in return for collateral.

Paulson and Bernanke Bailout Friends on Wall Street, a Disaster for US Tax Payers / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Money_Morning

Jason Simpkins writes: Standing on the steps of the U.S. Treasury building across the street from the White House, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson asked Congress for the power to prop up Fannie Mae ( FNM ) and Freddie Mac ( FRE ), the two failing mortgage giants involved with nearly half of the $12 trillion U.S. mortgage market.

"The president has asked me to work with Congress to act on this plan immediately," Paulson said Sunday. "Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac play a central role in our housing finance system and must continue to do so in their current form as shareholder-owned companies. Their support for the housing market is particularly important as we work through the current housing correction."

US Banking Crisis Goes from Bad to Worse / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe last four days have seen the already distressed US banking sector lurch towards the precipice of a full blown financial system meltdown. Banks that have already seen stock price falls of as much as 90% were again hit today with many falling a further 5% to 10% on fears that a series of cascading bank failures were about to be triggered following the collapse of Indymac bank on Friday, as a run on the bank had panicking depositors withdrew funds at the rate of a billion a day.

Price Inflation and Asset Deflation, the Reversal of 25 Years of Booming Markets / Stock-Markets / Deflation

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAFTER TWENTY-FIVE YEARS of booming asset markets, it's getting hard to keep hold of your money, let alone grow it.

Inflation is destroying fixed-income bonds. Stocks have tipped into a bear market, down more than one-fifth worldwide. Real estate suffers both over-supply and an historic shortage (too many units vs. no mortgage finance). And this is clearly no time to launch a business relying on discretionary spending, consumer debt or prompt payment.

Stock Markets Oversold and Pointing to Relief Rally / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
Long-term trend - The Dow Jones Industrials are deviating from their typical decennial pattern in an election year. Important cycles going into the Fall could be the reason for this, but one also has to consider the possibility that the downward pressure from the 120-yr cycle, which is due to make its low in 2012-2014 has begun to take effect and that October 2007 was the top of the bull market. This is not yet confirmed.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The initial phase of the intermediate correction came to an end on 3/17 at 1257. After a tentative uptrend to 1440, the index has now retraced to slightly below its March low with signs of a rally appearing.

S&P Stock Market Index 400 Point Move! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

What if that was the headline for this coming week, a four hundred point move in the S&P? Most likely, you'd be loading up on out of the money puts or calls , looking for the market to close at record highs or down around 800. If you haven't noticed, those looking for a sudden, dramatic collapse in stocks have been thwarted by a slow, persistent drip downward occasionally punctuated by vicious snapback rallies.

Dow Jones Stock Market Forecast to Sept 2008 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Dow Jones has until recently been closely following the roadmap for 2008 posted on 24th March 2008 as part of the Global Stock markets outlook, i.e. both the rally to early May to 13,136 and the subsequent downtrend to 11,700 by the end of June were virtually spot on. The analysis was confirmed in the analysis of 3rd May 08, which concluded that Sell in May and Go Away would be occur this year as transpired during the subsequent decline into the end of June as the below road map chart illustrates from the March article.

Credit Crisis Easing? Is the Stocks Bear Market End? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis


Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“In a sign of some improvement in the credit crisis, Wall Street firms for the first time didn't borrow from the Federal Reserve's emergency lending program and commercial banks also scaled back.

“Investment firms didn't draw such loans for the week ending July 9. They borrowed just $1.7 billion in the previous week ending July 2, down from $6.1 billion in the week before that. Such borrowing rose as high as $38.1 billion in early April.

Financial Markets Reeling from Fannie & Freddie Collapse and Evitable Government Bailout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article13-july-1.jpg“Finance is the art of passing money from hand to hand until it finally disappears,” said Robert W. Sarnoff. This is certainly the way it looked last week as the fall-out of the credit crisis deepened.

Markets had investors feeling dazed and confused after another roller-coaster week amid further evidence of the deteriorating health of the US financial sector and a renewed rise in oil prices. Adding to the pain, Barron's Randall Forsyth said: “Now that the bear market has officially arrived, it may stick around and gnash its teeth for a while – until it's scared away those who remain.”

Plunging Dollar Drives Oil to New High.. Stocks Crumble on Freddie Mac and Fannie Mae Near Collapse / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Richard_Gorton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US Dollar, $USD, plunged below 72.00 to close at at 71.79 as oil rose intraday to $146 a barrel on worries that Israel may attack Iran, renewed militant activities in Nigeria and a strike in Brazil next week.

Stocks fell lower on troubled mortgage GSEs, Fannie Mae, FNM and Freddie Mac, FRE. Today was an epic day a watershed day: the mortgage securitization infrastructure of the US collapsed. The two companies have lost $11 billion in recent months, and their shares have plunged to 1991 levels; they own or guarantee more than $5 trillion in mortgages, MarketWatch reports.

Stocks Technical Outlook Suggests Tradeale Rally Forming / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: The conditions are ripe for a washout which would be a setup for a tradable rally.

Short Term - I use momentum indicators of price and breadth to find a short term rhythm in the market. These have all failed recently as the market has gone to rarely seen oversold levels.

Stocks Bear Market Classical Dow Theory Proven Correct Once Again / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAccording to the founding fathers of Dow theory, which include Charles H. Dow, William Peter Hamilton and Robert Rhea, the single most important aspect of Dow theory is the price movement above and below previous secondary high and low points. The question is, what constitutes secondary high and low points? In all honesty, this is where the art of Dow theory comes into play. But, for those who have truly studied the original writings by Dow, Hamilton and Rhea this becomes fairly obvious with study. I can assure you that no book on technical analysis covers the Dow theory in enough detail to provide the reader a complete working knowledge of Dow theory.

Nature of the Fannie Mae Bailout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI strongly believe that GSEs are part of the problem and no part of the solution. Government has no business promoting housing over renting and I would abolish HUD, the FHA, and end government sponsorship of the GSEs as quickly as practical. Ron Paul has advocated the same.

Has anyone even bothered to look up the Mission Statement of Fannie Mae ?

US Housing Mortgage Market Meltdown- Say good-bye to Fannie and Freddie? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFederal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke and Secretary of the Treasury Henry Paulsen told Congress Thursday that new regulatory powers are needed to insulate the national economy from damage if a big Wall Street firm collapses. Now that is an interesting proposition. We have already bailed out Bear Stearns and several other brokerage institutions in March. So is someone else in trouble already? Who could it be?

Rise in Treasury Yields Could Benefit Stocks, though Flight to Commodities Continues / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInteresting that the TLT's (Lehman 20 year T-bond ETF) fell 1.4% on Friday, which reflects a climb in 10-year T-note yields to 3.94% from 3.83% earlier on Friday. Yet the stock indices continued to undergo waves of intense long liquidation.

My guess: that the reversal in the TLTs -- normally an instrument that attracts buyers during times of financial panic and flight to safety -- is hinting that the current phase of the plunge in stocks is nearing completion. The problem is that it could last into Monday or Tuesday, so no sense in standing in front of this falling sword.

Decade of No Investment Returns, Part II / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"... Giving money to stockholders now looks like so 20th century, it's downright Victorian...!"

EVEN AFTER their dividend checks, US stock investors earned less than zero thanks to inflation in the 10 years to July 2008.

That marked the first Decade of No Returns in a quarter-century according to Richard Bernstein at Merrill Lynch. And seeing what's happened to US stocks so far in the second-half of 2008 – and given the US authorities' likely response – it won't be the last.
