Pop Go the Liquidity Bubbles / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:

  • Pop Go the Bubbles
  • Lights for Myanmar, Water for Darfur
  • A Half A Trillion Here and There
  • Consumer Spending is Up? Wait, Is It Down?
  • The Presidential Race
  • Family, Christmas, and Home

Consumer spending was much stronger than thought in November, yet Circuit City Stores Inc., Best Buy Co. and other retailers that warned of a slump in purchases. A private report today showed consumer confidence slid to the lowest level in more than two years in December. The stock market chooses to see all things bullish, and so it powers ever upward. This week we take a brief look at the consumer, recent "shock and awe" central bank actions, money supply and more, trying to see how it all fits together.

Real Estate Pro's Head for the Exit as Bush Asks Banks to "Come Clean" on Losses / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U.S. housing recession has worsened since the credit collapse in August. Because of it, economic growth will slow to an approximate 1% annualized rate in the fourth quarter, according to estimates given by economists to Bloomberg News . President George W. Bush said he's concerned about the housing slump dragging on the economy and said financial institutions must be open about how much they may lose because of the collapse of the subprime mortgage market.

Greed, Fear and Market Manipulation as Wall Street Bonuses Rise / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Andy_Sutton

Lessons of 2007 - Yesterday I had the opportunity to take a rather remarkable group of young people to a regional business competition. This was an actual competition, not one of these contrived events where everyone wins and hand wringing is out in full force. All in all, the group did rather well with one student winning her category, and two others placing 4th in a team event. For a group of 8 I was rather pleased. I also came to see the full scope of human emotion that ensued in the hours after the competition. The rest of us should be so lucky to have the life experience that transpired yesterday although I didn't realize it myself until those early hours of the morning when the world is silent and still and permits us time for reflection.

Sovereign Wealth Fund Capital Injections Will Fail to Increase Commercial Bank Lending / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

When economists discuss investment in real capital expenditures they make a distinction between gross and net. If investment expenditures just match the depreciation of capital equipment, then gross investment rises, but net investment is unchanged. Increases in net investment, not gross investment, are what matters with regard to the future productivity of the economy.

US Bailout of Bond Insurers to Prevent Collapse of US Banking System / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe hidden bond insurers used by Wall Street firms are in the news, especially ACA Capital and MBIA. Implications are huge, with monumental ripple effects. Financial press reporting of the bond insurers is woefully inadequate. Moodys and Fitch are giving analysis review to nine ‘AAA' rated bond insurers to see if they have sufficient capital to conduct their insurance operations. The list includes ACA Capital, MBIA, Ambac Financial, and Financial Guaranty Insurance. ACA Capital has only $1.1 billion in cash for payout of bond failure claims, but has lost $1 billion in the most recent quarter. More losses are assured. This insurer is very important, since it is widely abused by Wall Street banks to hide cratered bond derivative losses.

Fed Liquidity Intervention in Recognition of Credit Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: David_Vaughn

Well, Christmas is just around the corner. Bet your kids are excited if you still have little ones around the house. On top of Christmas the world is coming unhinged but really nothing more exciting. Let me get something clear right up front concerning last weeks article. Number one I was not “Bush Bashing.” Heck, I voted for the man. My point in the article was the inevitability of a coming crisis in Iran . Enough said on that. Let's get back to Christmas.

Rule Change on Foreign Investments to Send Chinese Stocks To the Moon / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

If you're feeling a little nervous about the markets ... you're far from alone.

U.S. stocks have been struggling ever since the Federal Reserve Bank disappointed investors with a measly 25-basis-point interest rate cut last week.

Collapse of the Modern Day Banking System - Staring into the Abyss / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Whitney


Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“In past financial crises... the Fed has been able to wave its magic wand and make market turmoil disappear. But this time the magic isn't working. Why not? Because the problem with the markets isn't just a lack of liquidity — there's also a fundamental problem of solvency.” Paul Krugman

Stocks fell sharply last week on news of accelerating inflation which will limit the Federal Reserves ability to continue cutting interest rates. On Tuesday the Dow Jones Industrials tumbled 294 points following the Fed's announcement of a quarter point cut to the Fed Funds rate. On Friday, the Dow dipped another 178 points when government figures showed consumer prices had risen 0.8% last month after a 0.3% gain in October. The stock market is now lurching downward into a “primary bear market”. There has been a steady deterioration in retail sales, commercial real estate, and the transports.

Value Stocks Crash Reaches 50 Per Cent! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

Credit Crunch Far From Being Over, Further Economic Uncertainty? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Regent_Markets

To say that Wall Street has been paying close attention to the actions of the US Federal Reserve recently is an understatement to say the least. Last week was no different as the Dow Jones & Co reacted frantically to Fed attempts to stoke greater movement in moribund credit markets.

Small Caps Should Continue to Trail Blue ChipsŠwhile Nasdaq Q's Have Short-term Upside / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWell, time to dust off the daily QQQQ chart again, which shows the major channel the Q's carved out from the July 2006 low to the October 2007 high. My preferred scenario argues (still) that the November 12 low at 48.75 ended the first portion of an intermediate-term correction that eventually will resume its decline towards a test of the lower channel support line, now in the vicinity of 47.30.

"Eventually?" Yes, because from the November 12 low, both my pattern and oscillator work indicate that the initial rally to the December 11 peak at 52.84 represented the first phase of an "intervening recovery rally" that has unfinished business on the upside into the 53.00 area prior to the plunge towards the lower channel support line.

EWI view on the FTSE, Interest Rates and the Super SIV Subprime Rescue Fund / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

Hey, Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime for the SIV Superfund? 12/7/2007 2:33:58 PM  "  Strange to see that Wall Street, which had no trouble raising money before the subprime mess and the ensuing credit crunch, is now scraping for 'spare change.' Here's why the superfund is a good idea for a few people but a bad idea in general. Read More

Hyper-inflationary Paper Promises Poised On Precarious Perch / Stock-Markets / Inflation

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhether it be due to a global currency crisis , it's effects , or because worse is yet to come , no matter, the ever-growing hyperinflationary mountain of paper promises is precariously perched on the edge of a precipice ready to fall, and in doing so; such an event would accelerate the end of the US Dollar ($) empire, along with its dominance in world affairs and trade . And no amount of fairy tales or interventions will be able to halt the $'s slide from prominence – nothing. This is becoming more evident in the fact the credit crisis is now spreading to Asia , where the stock markets have become destabilized.

Confusion in The Markets - What Could it Mean? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom close up, there is no making sense of what is happening in the markets today. Certainly, in all the years of my involvement in and around the markets I have never seen such confusion at the coalface.

One reason, I suspect, is that there are broadly based vested interests at work which are battling for all they are worth to ensure that the infrastructure doesn't unravel.

Stock Markets Consolidating Towards a Cycle Bottom by Christmas / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - The 12-yr cycle is nearing its mid-point and some of its dominant components may already be restraining the bullish effect of the 4.5-yr cycle. 2008 should see a period of correction into the late summer or Fall, followed by an eventual bull market top in 2009-10.

SPX: Intermediate trend - an extended intermediate-term consolidation is in process.

FTSE 100 Index UK Stock Market Forecast Into End December 2007 / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst focusing primarily on the US stock markets during the past 2 to 3 months i.e. Dow Jones and S&P Index, the other western markets have been expected to follow the same or very similar trends which includes the UK's FTSE 100 Index. A recap of the anticipated trend has been for a rally into early October 2007, followed by a corrective decline into November and a strong rally into the new year to new highs for the year. The details of this analysis are contained within the archives. Accompanied by the scenario for the relative under performance of the asian markets as of late October and into the new year, which continues to be borne out by actual price action.

Fed Fumbling in The Dark; Investors Hold Anti-Recession Stocks In Uncertain Times / Stock-Markets / US Economy

Mike Larson writes: I don't know if you're a fan of the Benny Hill Show or if you've ever watched those old Keystone Cops films, but they both featured madcap comedy skits, with a bunch of people running around, often at cross-purposes, and ultimately accomplishing nothing.

And I was reminded of them this week by the Federal Reserve's latest actions. To recap:

Dow Theory Stocks Primary Bear Market Confirmation / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe primary bear market confirmation that occurred on November 21 st when the Industrials confirmed the Transport's break below the August closing low remains in place in spite of the recent rally. In fact, the rally that began out of the November 26th low was anticipated and I stated before this rally began that it was going to cause many to question the integrity surrounding the November 21st Dow Theory primary bear market confirmation. That has definitely proven correct.

Robert Rhea, who was the leading Dow theorist in the late 1920's and 1930's stated: “Charles H. Dow never intended his theory of price movements to be construed as being a method whereby the royal road to riches could be found. While the principles laid down by him and developed by William Peter Hamilton may assist us in understanding something of security price trends, it would nevertheless be a fallacy to undertake any discussion of the subject without making the point very clear that no dependable method of beating the market has yet been discovered. Intelligent observation and study of the ever-recurring formations in the averages which Dow and Hamilton noted can, however, prove invaluable to both investors and speculators.”
