Black Swans and Endogenous Uncertainty of the Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Risk Analysis

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:

  • Ubiquity, Complexity Theory and Sandpiles
  • Fingers of Instability
  • A Stable Disequilibrium
  • General Equilibrium with Endogenous Uncertainty
  • Identity Theft and New York

How does the risk of default in California or Thailand get spread throughout the world, causing problem in money market funds in Europe and Florida? Yes, we can trace the linkages now, but was it possible to predict the crisis beforehand? And can we use what we learn to predict and hopefully hedge ourselves from the next crisis? Why do these things seem to be happening with more frequency? This week we are going to look at some economic theories which will give us some insight into the above questions. As it turns out, the more that individuals hedge their risk in economic markets - the larger the network - the more the entire system is put at risk. There is a lot of ground to cover, so we will jump right in.

Subprime Housing Crash Gets Political - The Big Five Year Mortgage Rate Freeze Plan / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe blame game is beginning and fingers are now being pointed at political appointees (usually given their jobs because of massive donations). Roland Arnall, founder of Ameriquest and current Ambassador to the Netherlands is a rather prominent target. “ Indeed, a host of class-action suits have been launched over the last two years which accuse the former Ameriquest of having engaged in predatory practices (the company was sold this year after it settled one suit for $325m, without acknowledging wrongdoing). Some American lawyers and subprime borrowers are now threatening to turn their fire on Mr Arnall as well – notwithstanding his current job in the Hague.”

Henry Paulson has a long and winding road ahead.

Wall Street Once Again Resumes Rally / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

Wall Street resumed its rally this week after new data showed the overall economy is holding up, but isn't so strong as to prevent the Federal Reserve from cutting interest rates says Betonmarket's Michael Wright. The Dow Jones industrial average saw an increase of nearly 200 points on Wednesday.

End of the US Banking and Financial System / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the last month a tectonic shift has taken place among central bankers. To be sure, the USDollar is aided if foreign central banks end their march to raise official interest rates. The USDollar has been propped up for over two years in large part from powerful credit market carry trades that used to exploit higher USTreasury bond yields, both the short-term and long-term variety. The US Federal Reserve has been forced kicking and screaming to reduce official Fed Funds rates, all the while denying a grotesque contagion from the bond world to the bank world to the economy on Main Street . The USFed looks bound by the bond market to continue to cut interest rates, much like a large dog is led by a spiked choker around its neck, urged to obey its master's orders via vicious tugs.

Mega Trends - What China and India's Nouveau Riche Want to Buy / Stock-Markets / Asian Economies

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSean Brodrick writes:The term "nouveau riche," or "new money," refers to people who, through rapid acquisition of wealth, now have the ability to buy things that were previously out of their reach.

In the U.S., it applies to individuals. But in Asia, it applies to entire nations .

So today, I want to talk about how people in India and China are going nuts for high-end consumer goods, especially jewelry.

Bullish Profile for the Nasdaq Q's / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) exhibit a very bullish profile for the session and appear to be ready to resume strength into the final hour of trading after a period of two-way trading during the noon to 2 pm period. Should strength resume during the final hour, the pattern argues for a run at last Friday's high of 52.26. Only a decline that violates 51.00 will compromise the developing pattern.

Are the Current Stock and Financial Market Mania's about to Crash ? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: EWI

Stock Markets tend to periodically rally into dangerous financial manias, the problem that investors have is not in recognising that one is in an financial mania, but when the resulting bubble will burst with a stock market crash.

The recent rally in the global and US financial markets, including the Dow Jones, increasingly has all the hall marks of a financial mania according to Elliott Wave International analyst Peter Kendall. This distinction is important to recognize as the markets rise, because the manias always result in a CRASH that takes them back beneath their original starting point.

United States For Sale - Who is Buying... / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: One of the catalysts for last week's stock market rally was the news that Citigroup received a $7.5-billion injection from the Gulf Arab emirate of Abu Dhabi. In exchange, Abu Dhabi now owns 4.9% of Citigroup.

That's on top of the 3.9% that Saudi Arabian Prince al-Waleed bin Talal already owned, which means that foreigners now own a huge chunk of one of America's largest and most prestigious banks.

G7 Creating Rolling Asset Bubbles That Implode - Fingers of Instability, Part 14 / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn This Issue- 3 Fingers of Instability

  • Moral Hazard, Herding Cats and Shades of Japan !
  • Ghosts of Christmas “Future”
  • Shocking News!

Introduction
The “fingers of Instability” series will be wrapped up next week (in the months and years ahead we will bring you short vignettes). It's been a fun and enjoyable mental exercise but it has now unfolded pretty much as outlined since it began. It is prelude to the next chapter in the unfolding demise of the G7 and its financial and monetary systems. But it has a long way to run (several decades in my estimation) and the opportunities are generational in scope. Wealth will shift from one group to another and change the face of the Globe.

Stock Markets Headed for a New All Time High / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market.
SPX: Long-Term Trend - The 12-yr cycle is approaching its mid-point and some of its dominant components are topping and should soon restrain the bullish effect of the 4.5-yr. This could lead to another period of consolidation in 2008 with an eventual bull market top in 2009-2010.

SPX: Intermediate Trend - The intermediate-term trend which had been in a correction since the index reached 1576 has now resumed its up move.

The Grinch Who Stole the Christmas Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe following article was written one week ago, so it is possible the termination point of wave G was one week early. When broad market indices are in a bear market, sharp rallies that appear out of the blue (such as the sharp three day rally last week) are linked to short squeezes…this further confirms the S&P is still in a bear market. The rally last week terminated wave F, so wave G is now forming. If the labeling is correct, albeit one week early, Monday should be an up day in the S&P followed by a retracement of the last week's advance by 50-80% for the rest of next week. If a decline in wave G occurs, it will match the expected December 7-10 th rally point, albeit in a different wave structure.

Stock Market Update: Trading By the Book / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

It's not easy trading against the crowd. It's tough to get long and put real money on the line when everywhere you go you hear about the market crashing, about a looming 3 rd wave down, about breakdowns, write downs, and basically the end of the bull market. But buy in the face of all that bearishness is exactly what we did at TTC for no other reason than that we tune out the rest and simply trade the charts.

The Dow Theory Potential Sell Signal Update / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

In the previous November posting here I explained that in accordance to Dow's theory we had an important non-confirmation at play, which served as a warning that something was wrong. I also explained that we were then in what is known as a Sell Spot in anticipation of a Primary Trend change. On November 21, 2007 this Primary Trend change occurred. As a result, the “Stock Market Barometer,” as it was described by William Peter Hamilton back in the 1920's, is telling us that conditions are now stormy. This Primary Bear market will remain in force until negated by another confirmed bullish indication in accordance with Dow theory.

The good news is: · It is likely we saw an intermediate term low last Monday.

Stock Markets Ignoring Subprime Housing Market Crash Fire Alarm / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:

  • The Financial Fire Trucks Are Gathering
  • A Thanksgiving Fire Drill
  • The Credit Markets Get Tighter
  • Pushing on a String - the LIBOR Conundrum
  • GDP Funny Business
  • Europe, New York, and South Africa

The markets rebounded strongly this week, bouncing off a 10% drop in the previous weeks. Is it a signal of renewed economic vigor? Or is it a dead cat bounce? This week we take a look at problems at the edge of the economy which threaten to derail not only the recent robust growth (at least in the statistics) but also the markets. And we start with a personal story which I think will help us understand the current situation. Stay with me here.
