Greenspan: Housing and Stocks Bubbles Not My Fault / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Brady_Willett

In today's Wall Street Journal former Fed boss, Alan Greenspan, attempted yet again to explain why he wasn't to blame for all the ‘bubbles' that coincidentally transpired during his tenure.  In the piece Greenspan adds color to the same storylines he has harped on before, those being 1) that he took the Federal Funds rate down to 1% because he was scared of deflation, and 2) crazy investors, not him, are to blame for the euphoric booms in stocks and real estate while he was Fed boss.

Markets Indicating a Freeze on Mortgage Resets is likely to Repair the Credit Narkets and Bolster Earnings Growth / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Greg_Silberman

As market practitioners we are more concerned with the markets reaction to news than the news itself. Yesterday's announcement that Variable Mortgage resets could be frozen for 5-years is telling in that regard.

During the 1980s the international community got fed up with South Africa's Apartheid policies. Their response was to punish South Africa economically through broad sweeping trade sanctions (which ultimately brought the country to its knees). One far reaching measure was to shut the South African Government and its Corporations out of the international Debt markets. No new debt could be issued internationally.

Stock Market Index Ramped Higher by Vested Interests Pre Fed Rate Cut / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Brian_Bloom

The chart below provides evidence that the industrial equity market was “ramped” by vested interests in anticipation of the Fed rate decision.

Note how, following the Fed decision, the Dow Jones fell back below the intersection of the two trendlines – which is roughly where the technical resistance was before it was ramped.

Credit Bubble Bursting to Lead to Across the Board Asset Price Deflation / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Christopher_Laird

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRiding upon the greatest credit bubble in history, greater than anything ever –(my interpretation of Doug Noland) one has to wonder what the future holds, if that bubble is breaking. That bubble includes the greatest housing bubble in history, the greatest world stock and bond bubble.

Just for the US housing bubble, it is estimated that, in a mere 5 years since 2002, $5 trillion was both pulled out of US housing and also the housing stock rose that much in value. $10 trillion total.

Nasdaq in Post US Rate Cut Announcement Correction / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

So far the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) are following the 25 bps script…entering a correction on expected, disappointing news from the FOMC, amidst extremely optimistic sentiment. Let's notice that the price structure is approaching a test of the Nov-Dec support line, now at 51.90, which my work argues will be violated on the way to at least 50.50 thereafter.

Investor Flight to Safety is Negative for Small Cap Stocks / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe trickle down affect of the U.S. subprime debacle is more far reaching than most investors may suspect. The obvious surface reaction is the negative outcome in the financial and housing sectors. Stocks in these areas have seen their values plunge in recent months. In addition, the Fed is prepared to cut rates to help stabilize the markets and in doing so, pulls whatever frail amount of support that exists from under the U.S. dollar. This move, in turn, provides increasing upward pressure to gold. But the area that is equally important and often missed in the subprime fiasco is the reaction or need for safety from investors.

Credit Crunch Contagion Spreads - Stock Markets Could Crash 50% During 2008 / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMake no mistake about it, the credit crunch is still spreading and contagious , and will remain that way until all debt that needs to be purged from the system has been expunged. Unfortunately for all concerned, with conditions in key factors displaying signs of Super-Cycle Degree tops, such as in demographic trends for example, this process could take longer than the current batch of bankers would prefer, and in fact likely scuttle the present day credit-based monetary system as a result. This is why one should not be surprised to see blank check policy and / or monetization rates continue accelerating moving forward, along with falling interest rates in bringing real yields down in an effort to support a faltering Western banking model. And because this is a global affair expect to see competitive devaluations begin to occur more frequently soon as well, which in total will continue to benefit precious metals in both relative and nominal measure as an increasingly stressed populations search for safe means to save wealth once again. In this sense, an entire era of speculation in paper assets is quickly turning the corner at present.

Strong Stock Markets as the Government Comes to the Rescue! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The government to the rescue! Early last week, it looked as though we would get serious about going lower, and then came a cash infusion for Citigroup and this week, the President announced a “bailout” for some homeowners – as long as you fit into the relatively narrow criterion. Stock investors, especially those in the housing/financing related issues took flight, rising by at least 10% over the past two weeks. The economy supported some of the move, as recessionary fears moved to the back burner.

Fed Panic! - Paulson's Subprime Mortgage Bailout is to Help the Banks not the People! / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA nation's economy is a reflection pool. The face that looks back from the water; is the face of the culture and the prevailing ethos. It's no different with America. The stewards of the US economic system—Paulson and Bernanke—are inextricably linked to a political/military establishment which has been thoroughly marinated in a culture of violence and corruption. Paulson's “Marshall Plan” for subprime homeowners is just the gloved hand of the despot. The other hand is still busy gouging out eyes at Guantanamo, or clubbing foreign nationals at CIA black sites, or dropping incendiary bombs on schoolchildren in Falluja. It's all the same. The culture of war and demagoguery has its roots in the economic system. Its financial leaders are just as culpable as any low-ranking GI at Abu Ghraib.

US Housing Market Imploding! Japanese Yen Exploding! / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: Money_and_Markets

Jack Crooks writes: While the mainstream media is cheering Washington's new bailout plan for homeowners, bad news keeps pouring out of the U.S. housing markets like the floodwaters of the Chehalis River:

The percentage of home loans in any stage of foreclosure surged 70% — from 1.05% a year earlier to 1.69% in the third quarter, the worst on record.

The Psychology of Investing in the Stock Market From 1996 to 2007 / Stock-Markets / Trader Psychology

By: David_Petch

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTaxidermy refers to the job of taking the skins of dead animals and mounting them onto a plate of some form that depicts them in a naturally occurring state. With the era of photography and cartoons, this is not required for today's article. Instead, pictures are strategically placed onto the S&P 500 Index chart to “capture” what the general populous was thinking at a particular point in time.

One of the main reasons for this article taking along time to publish was finding the appropriate pictures. A picture is said to be worth 1000 words, so each picture is supposed to be representative of the thoughts of each individual at a certain point in the stock market cycle. The stock market is a barometer of how the economy is doing and the footprint left by the "tape" directly captures the summation of all participants. Many assume the market is a random beast that does not follow any particular pattern, but instead, quite the opposite is true.

Stock Market Update: The Remedy to Sideways Markets / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

If Friday felt like a real sleeper, then I'm sorry to say we may have a few more days' sideways trading in store for us ahead of the Fed. At TTC we currently have three distinct patterns for this rally off the recent lows, but by Tuesday evening we'll be looking to have one or two of those invalidated. And as alternates are eliminated, we continue to buy and sell every wiggle.

Wall Street Ponzi Scheme - Confidence, Perception and the Ideal Investment Solution / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: David_Morgan

My struggle in this ponzi scheme of Wall Street Finance goes much deeper. I ultimately ask myself where is this all headed. I could write a book on the daily manipulations and tactics that are used to keep this game going. But I want to take this into another direction. One of the reasons to invest to precious metals centers on the actions and thoughts of the so-called men in charge of the USA. I believe there is an elite class that really pulls the levers of this country, and the politicians are simply the tools, which they use as cover. I do not want to sound like an alarmist or a conspiracist. I want you to judge the facts and make your own decision.

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.

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.
