Nasdaq Q's Correction Ends / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

I have very preliminary signals that the decline from Friday's high at 49.29 in the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) ended this morning at 48.14. If accurate then the Q's should NOT violate 48.14 on any ensuing weakness and instead should continue higher towards a retest of last Friday's high at 49.27 on the way to new multi-month recovery highs projected into the 50.00/40 target zone.

Delusional Stock Investors and Credit Crisis Vultures / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Dr_William_R_Swagell

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe actions of Central Banks over the past six weeks have helped global markets rebound from their mid-March troughs. Markets that were down 20%-40% from their peaks of last year have now rebounded 8%-10%. So are we now about to launch into a new bull market or are we merely experiencing a counter-trend rally in a bear market?

A Reuters article (28th April, 2008) ran the headline... “Feasting vultures say market may have bottomed ... The allure of rotting mortgage bonds has grown so strong that Wall Street's vultures have begun picking over the carcasses... these intrepid investors have begun betting billions on a hunch that mortgage security prices have fallen enough.”

Stock Market Pattern Recognition / Stock-Markets / Technical Analysis

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn today's increasingly mature market environment, basing one's investment decisions on the recognition of commonly followed patterns, like a ‘head and shoulders pattern', has proven to be an expensive mistake all too many times for traders throughout the past 10-years or so. This is because when a large enough body of investors / speculators get to know something, and then act on it, what may have once proven to be a reliable ‘sell signal' becomes the opposite due to betting practices of market participants in what has morphed into more of a casino than a market. With respect to the stock market today, it's fair to say this is exactly what condition our condition is in., fuelled by runaway money supply growth also characteristic of high degree market tops that can take many years to fully mature.

Stock Market Update: Turn Off the TV / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

Last week's tape is evidence of how many traders let the news get to their head, got faked out by the post-Fed selloff, and were short stocks after the meeting only to be forced to cover later in the week, sparking a rally that now has much of Wall Street bullish on stocks. But, after having pounded the table about being long above 1256, which remember was the must-hold big picture target number that had us buying the bottom during the MLK holiday hedge fund blowup and again on the retest, the widespread feelings that it's now time get into the market has us instead eyeing the exits.

Financial Markets Signaling Major Turning Point? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Black_Swan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the run towards safe-haven assets over? Major threats to financial markets certainly haven’t disappeared overnight. But it appears as though risk-appetite has returned that quickly. Of course, it can also vanish just as quickly. Either way it’s still something that needs to be monitored.

Credit Crisis Worst is Over- We'll Believe It When We See It! / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

"Sell in May" says the old stock market adage, but the bulls were in no mood for old wives' tales last week. Markets were in rally mode after the better than expected US jobs report, and news of more liquidity injections from the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve did what most traders were expecting them to do in cutting rates another quarter percent down to 2%.

Stocks Trending Higher on Better than Expected Economic Statistics / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Election years that fall in the 8th year of the Decennial pattern call for consolidation in the early part of the year followed by a strong finish. But the 6-yr cycle which is scheduled to bottom in late Summer/early Fall could also play a restraining role, followed by an eventual bull market top in 2009-2010.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The intermediate consolidation came to an end on 3/17. The index is now in a cautious uptrend which probably has a little farther to go.

Investor Sentiment Improves on Worst of Credit Crisis Behind Us / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May,” said Edwin Way Teal.

And so it seemed during the past week as we witnessed a further improvement in investor sentiment and risk appetite, supported by the viewpoint that the worst of the credit crisis might be behind us. The end result by Friday's close was strong gains for stock markets (with the Volatility Index at its lowest level since December), a further recovery of the US dollar, a sell-off of most commodities, and a weak undertone in government bond markets.

Non-Farm Payrolls- Lies, damned lies and statistics / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe quote has been attributed to Benjamin Disraeli and popularized by Mark Twain. It could be applied to today's Employment Report . The press headline reads, “ Nonfarm payrolls down 20,000; unemployment rate unexpectedly falls.” Folks, these numbers have been massaged to get the “right” outcome.

For example, in April, the number of persons working part time for economic reasons increased by 306,000 to 5.2 million. This level was 849,000 higher than in April 2007. These individuals indicated that they were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. 5.2 million workers comprise 3.8% of the alleged workforce.

Equities Uptrend Weakened by Surging Crude Oil / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In just about the past 24 hours, crude oil prices have rocketed from a corrective low of $110.30 to this AM's intraday high at $116.18 so far- just a 5% gain, that's all! So far, the rally in oil, an ETF of which is the US Oil Trust (AMEX: USO), has recovered about 60% of the prior decline from the all-time high at $119.93 to yest.'s low at $110.30. If June crude hurdles and sustains above $116.20, then I will be expecting a retest of $119.93.

Financial Stocks Break Out / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This morning the Financial Select SPDR (AMEX: XLF) broke out of a 6-week bullish coil pattern that represents the digestion period after the initial upmove from the 3/17 low at 22.1 to the 3/24 high at 27.37 (+23%). With today's surge out of the coil, the XLF has started a new upleg that should propel the financial index towards a test of resistance at 27.80-28.00 next, on the way to an optimal target zone of 29.50. Only a break below 26.40 will wreck the developing upside follow-through from the March low. Read full article... Read full article...

Bearish Stock Market Wedge Patterns- Yorba TV Show / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday I want to talk about wedges (not wedgies).  Especially the bearish kind of wedge.  We have them in a lot of indexes, namely in the SPX, the NDX and the EEM.  Bearish wedges are continuation patterns of an existing trend. A wedges is formed by a counter-trend correction and it leans against the prevailing advance or decline.  In this case, a rising wedge is bearish and a falling wedge is bullish.  The wedge pattern usually retraces one-half to two-thirds of the prevailing move before failing or reversing.  Volume usually contracts during the formation of the wedge, while increasing after the break down or breakout.  My source is John Murphy's book, Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets.

A Good Reason To Sell Stock Market Investments- Taxes / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month we stated: “we should expect rocket-launched (oh they've saved us) bear market rallies.” Since that time, the DJIA has had two separate blastoffs. That's all it took for investors to forget about the massive deflation that is happening in U.S. neighborhoods . We view the rise of the last two months as a breather before more serious selling takes hold. Goldman Sachs agrees and is warning ‘delusional' investors of a sell-off of “a further 15pc over the ‘near term.'” Warren Buffett has also recently stated “ the recession will be more severe than most expect.

Stock Markets Headed Lower into June-Sell in May and Go Away / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe old stock trader's saying of “sell in May and walk away” appears to be unfolding right on schedule this year. And with the expected major low coming in June, for the next 2 months, investors may wish to sit on the sidelines to watch the show and keep their investing on hold. If the last three major lows (March 2007, August 2007 and January 2008) were any example, the trough in June could be quite interesting. No one can say that this market is boring.
