India's Sensex Index tumbles by nearly 10% from highs, a buying opportunity ? / Stock-Markets / Analysis & Strategy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The indian stock market has stormed ahead to new highs , after recovering from the dip during the summer. The market finally paused for breadth as profit taking took the index about 10% lower. The Banking sector led the decline in Bombay including sharp falls in ICICI Bank and HDFC Bank, which was a result of the Reserve Bank of India's decision to tighten liquidity by raising the cash reserve ratio of Banks.

FTSE 100 falls to 6160 on oil price fall and MPC minutes / Stock-Markets / Strategic News

By: Phillipa_Green

Despite moving higher into mid-day, the FTSE slumped to close 42 points lower on the back of a $2 drop in the price of Crude OIl to $55 and fears of a rate rise. A large part of the decline was attributed to declines in a few stocks, namely, DSG, BP, RDSB, Vodafone and HSBC, which pulled the rest of the market lower later in the day on the back continuing worries about the US Economy. Also many stocks went ex-dividend today which further depressed prices. Read full article... Read full article...

Best investing books - Reminiscences of a Stock Operator / Stock-Markets / Resources & Reviews

By: Nadeem_Walayat

http://www.certz.com/exam?linux+

$14 (32% discount)

Reminiscences of a Stock Operator' by Edwin Lefèvre is probably one of the best and well known books on the subject of financial speculation, the book was published as the fictional biography of “Larry Livingston,” but is actually an biography of Jesse Livermore, one of the first famous stock & commodity traders ever. The man started trading after working as a boy in a brokerage house and trading in several of the tiny brokerages called “bucket shops” where small time traders would bet against the house, and eventually went on to become one of the most influential and widely-known traders of his day. He made, lost, and re-made millions at a time.

What you will get from the book are some classic mistakes and the lessons learned from them; some of the best catch phrases in the business; insight into how the markets were manipulated then and probably still are now. One of the most important lessons mentioned in the book is that a trader does not have to be invested in the market all the time.

This is the book from which almost every subsequent general trading book is derived. If you have ever wondered where the trading rule "Never average down" came from, just turn to page 154. Where did the comparison between greed and fear first originate ? Look to page 130.

The risks of Investing in Lebanon / Stock-Markets / Analysis & Strategy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Following the withdrawal of Israeli forces in 2000, Lebanon experienced a boom in construction as the war ravaged country was rebuilt. A large amount of this reconstruction was destroyed during the war and reoccupation of Lebanon by Israel during 2006. More than the loss of infrastructure, the country has suffered a loss of financial confidence and a slump in stock prices, as once more Lebanon is destablised by political uncertainties as the country divides along religious lines such as the Shites, Sunnis, Druse and the Christians .

FTSE100 and Dow Jones show signs of having Peaked following US Elections / Stock-Markets / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The US Mid-term election has come gone, with the stock markets having on cue rallied into the election, now post election the stock markets are starting to waver and could be heading for significant sell off during the traditionally strongest period for stock market gains. Many novices and professionals alike have taken the recent rally to beyond 12,000 in the Dow Jones and to above 6,200 in FTSE 100, as a sign of a Bull Market breakout and a signal to buy.

Time to invest in Iraq ? / Stock-Markets / Analysis & Strategy

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Usually the best time to invest is when all the news is bad. Given the current situation in Iraq of escalating sectarian violence, one could assume that, that stage has now arrived, with the verdict on Saddam Hussein representing a turning point for the country.

The potential for iraq lies in its vast oil and gas wealth, coupled with an predominantly educated population and low starting GDP growth, with financial help and support from the worlds larges economy (USA), the scene is set for a long-term investment opportunity in Iraq.

US Presidential Cycle Mid-term Election and the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Forecasts & Technical Analysis

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As the Dow Jones hits new highs above 12,000 for the first time, we take a look at what the market should be doing in terms of the long established US Presidential Cycle as we approach the Mid-Term Elections in November.

The Period November 2005 to November 2006, marks the 2nd year of the Presidential Cycle, this period is typically characterised by a general decline in optimism by investors as the president and Congress begin trying to manage difficult budget related issues and generally go about the 'boring' task of running the government.

Dow Jones Makes a Fake New High Whilst most of its Component Stocks Don't ! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As the Dow Jones posts new record highs this month, there is something strange going on with the Dow components where most of them are NOT making new highs !!!

So how many Dow Components are making NEW ALL TIME highs this month ?
FIVE ! That's 5 out of 30 are making new all time highs - WHILST the Index makes NEW highs

How many trading more than 10% below their all time highs ?
TWENTY - Two thirds of the Dow Stocks are trading more than 10% Below their all time highs.

How many are trading more than 20% below their all time highs ?
EIGHTEEN - More than half the Dow 30 Stocks are trading 20% Below their all time highs.

And here's a real shocker ! How many stocks are trading more than 50% ! Below their all time highs !
FIVE DOW STOCKS are trading more than 50% below their all time highs - THATS the same number making new all time highs !

So where am I going with this analysis ? ...... In the run up to the US Election the Dow Jones is Making NEW All time highs, when most of its components are nowhere near making new highs, does this or does this not smell of market manipulation ?

The situation is even worse when you consider the stocks that have been REMOVED from the index ! I.e. Eastman Kodak off 75%, International Paper off 45%. Those that say the markets are not manipulated, then who do you explain these facts ?

Dow Jones Hits New Highs in Lead up the Mid-term Elections / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The Dow Jones has fulfilled the price pattern identified in the July Analysis , having strongly marched higher as buyers rely on the pattern of buying into the run up to the Election as a self fulfilling prophecy, despite the bad news around growth, inflation and interest rates.

The Dow is likely to continue to hold into the Elections and then correct. The degree of correction depends on how high the market goes between now and the elections, but regardless of the results a correction is expected, as both the Dow and other Stock Markets squeeze in the usual Seasonal bull run into December into October instead.

Dow Jones Forecast - Double Bottom ? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

A month on from the FTSE double bottom, the same pattern can be observed forming on the Dow Jones 30 !
The correction during the summer was inline with the previous two corrections during the bull market in terms of price, though not time. But the key difference between this correction and the previous ones is that the Dow is now flirting with its all time high ! It failed to break on the first attempt and had a strong correction. The scene is set for another attempt on the high, with the second attempt more likely to succeed than the first attempt as the speculative forth has been unwound.

FTSE 100 Forecast - Get ready for the Seasonal Rally ! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

As anticipated the FTSE has had its correction during October, bottoming out at 5130 and now rallying to 5236, with the last close at 5213. The question is, has the bottom been made or not ?.
Its a tough call, but we are now moving into a strong up seasonal period that should see the FTSE rally strongly into December 2006, and on that basis it is highly probable that the bottom has already been put in at 5130 !
