Global Stock Markets Enter Extended Bear Markets, Reflation Ain't Going to Work / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack in October when that stimulus package was being discussed I wrote a couple of articles, which were posted here, stating that it “Ain't Gonna Work.” This past Wednesday the Fed announced their latest intentions with a plan to buy $300 billion in long-term Treasuries and $750 billion of mortgage-backed securities. I'm now beginning to wonder if the powers that be are really in their minds trying to “fix” things or if they are actually trying to destroy the dollar, the free markets and perhaps even the nation.

Financial Markets Analysis - Fed Adopts Quantitative Inflation / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe big story of the week was the U.S. Fed's head long fling over the cliff into Quantitative Easing by printing more than $1 trillion (electronically) , this is on top of the $800 billion already printed on the sly as the Fed buys toxic junk such as the weeks announcement of buying $1.25 trillion of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac mortgage backed securities, as well as other junk bonds, on top of $300 billion of US Government bonds to help finance the ever growing budget deficit. The implications of this extra supply of dollars is inflationary that devalues the value of all dollars. I have already warned indepth of the consequences of Quantitative Inflation so won't repeat it here.

More Weakness Likely for Stock Market S&P 500 Index / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe S&P 500 had an interesting week. In the aftermath of the FOMC announcement on Wednesday, the SPX climbed to 803.24 to make new recovery highs off of the March low. However, let¹s notice that the high for the week failed to penetrate significant resistance represented by the declining 10-week moving average and the Jan-Mar down trendline, and, in fact, reversed to the downside to close the week at 768.54.

Stock Market Indices Extend Losses / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The market suffered another decline today, as we expected, although the day started out differently. The indices went higher at the opening, and reached the session highs within the first 15 minutes on the NDX. But the SPX did not keep pace and barely made it higher, and then they both turned lower. They went down steadily and sharply for the next few hours until about an hour to go when they staged a snapback rally that reached right back up test resistance at the earlier breakdown points, getting up to 1195 NDX and 776 SPX. But they pulled back in the last 20 minutes to add to the losses.

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt's a circus in Washington. - Denouncing a "squandering of the people's money," lawmakers voted decisively Thursday to impose a 90 percent tax on millions of dollars in employee bonuses paid by troubled insurance giant AIG and other bailed-out companies. In some cases the bonuses might be taxed 100 percent leaving the recipients with nothing.

Stock Market Dow 30 Components Collective Risk of Ruin Analysis / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Joseph_Russo

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo goes the EMPIRE… With each small victory, we get a little bit closer to winning our country back - Until the last man stands, status central bankers alongside their political and corporate cohorts will defend their collective monopolies until fiat currencies reach one pip north of ZERO if need be. The sad fact remains that the majority of institutions and citizenry are eager to drink from the hyper-spiked cool-aid jug just so that they can “feel better” and have a better psychological outlook relative to the harsh reality of the collective insolvency dilemma imposed by their masters.

Stock Market Profit-Taking Sets In / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

Profit-taking finally set in after 7 out of 8 days on the upside, as the indices were extremely overbought this morning, with the McClellen Oscillator +328. I wasn't surprised to see the market move lower, but they did start out with a pop to the upside, reaching the session highs right in the first few minutes. Then they stair-stepped down in a 3-wave decline from 1220 NDX to about 1196, about a 24-point drop in the first hour and a half or so, and the SPX dropped from 803 to 783, about 20 points.

Stocks Bear Market Rally at Cross Roads / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEven after the current "powerful rally", the S&P 500 is still down over 12% YTD , something to keep in mind if you feel we are missing something. All we have missed year-to-date is a 12% loss. Bear markets always give people a reason to stick around. Yesterday , we commented, ...rather than signaling the end of the bear market, the more probable outcome for the current rally in the S&P 500 is for it to fail somewhere between current levels and 806. This rally may have further to run, but Wednesday's high on the S&P 500 was 803.

Stock Market Investing Buy and Hold vs. The Right Time to Buy / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany investors were taught that buy and hold is the best investing strategy. None other than Professor Jeremy Siegel author of Stocks for the Long Run, 4th Edition: The Definitive Guide to Financial Market Returns And Long Term Investment Strategies is a strong proponent of the buy and hold approach support this method. In a recent editorial in the Wall Street Journal, stating that stocks were cheap now and investors should buy. With the DJIA at lows not seen since 1997, it has been very tough for the buy and hold crowd. Could you have done better by timing your entries and exits?

Stock Market Indices Now Short-Term Overbought After Post-FOMC Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

It was a very interesting market today on FOMC announcement day. The indices backed and filled in the morning, were lower for most of the morning session, rallied by mid-day before the FOMC announcement, and then exploded after the FOMC announced the purchase of hundreds of billions dollars worth of treasuries. After a spike up that took the NDX up to 1225 and the SPX up to 803, at key overhead resistance on the SPX and above it on the NDX, the indices then had a sharp pullback that brought them back down by 30 NDX points and about 18 SPX points. In the last 15-20 minutes they bounced again and took back some of the late losses.

Stock Market Bottom and the Bookstore Indicator / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s hard to be positive about the stock market when all around us gloom prevails. Visiting a local Barnes & Noble recently made me conscious of just how gloomy everyone is feeling these days.

While there I made a list of some of the titles in the financial section. Finding a book these days with a bullish theme – or even a non-emotional, level-headed theme –is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. All I saw was one bearish tome after another. Here’s the list of titles I compiled:

Stock Market Volume Gives Shorts The Upper Hand / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Rather than signaling the end of the bear market, the more probable outcome for the current rally in the S&P 500 is for it to fail somewhere between current levels and 806. Trading volume can help us understand market participants' collective desire to buy or sell a particular security or index. To formulate probable outcomes for the current rally in stocks, we will compare the S&P 500 long ETF (SPY) with the S&P 500 short ETF (SH). As we walk through this analysis, notice we are focusing on observable facts rather than forecasting what the future may hold. We assume we will get more of the same (lower lows in SPY/S&P 500 Index) until we see evidence to the contrary (higher highs, better volume, etc).

Main Street vs. Wall Street: And the Winner Is… / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Q1_Publishing

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast Sunday, Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke jumped into the Public Relations Politics foray when he appeared on 60 Minutes .

The political marketers were out in full force on this one. They did everything from the visit of Bernanke's childhood home (which is now in foreclosure) to the close up of “Main Street” sign to the conversation on the street side bench in rural South Carolina. It was the perfect image of “I'm like you” kind of PR the government decision-makers are looking for right now.

FTSE 100 Index Stealth Bull Market as Bear Market Bottoms at 3,460 / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe FTSE 100 index fulfilled its bear market target as per the forecast of 20th January 2009 which called for a target Low at 3,400. Whilst much of my analysis has been focused on the Dow Jones Index, however as I have stated several times over recent months that the FTSE would closely track the DJIA in terms of bear market timing, but with a more positive % advantage to the Dow Index due to the impact of the overall continuing bearish trend of Sterling against the U.S. Dollar.
