Stocks & Commodity Markets Analysis - Don't Say the Crash Word (Yet) / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Dominick

Finally, a double top! Or, wait, was it just a pullback in an uptrend?

The volatility we promised back in January has been a constant theme this year, and the market continues to punish anyone that is wrong or just has some of that good ol’ bias. “Crash”, the C-word, was once again splattered across the topic lines of many forums and financial groups. You would think after what we went through this year at the March bottom, and last year in June, people would learn to at least give it more than a week before labeling the move.

A little Stock and Gold Market Dip Do ya, Plus a Look at the Week Ahead / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Joseph_Russo

A week ago, we alerted readers of an imminent June Swoon . We opened last week's commentary by stating: “After 11-weeks of nothing but blue-sky, we suspect this bull may be growing bored of the dominance it imposes upon bears at will. Perhaps a couple of weeks respite in June ought to be a minimum at which this easily antagonized bull may once again become angered, electing to resume its deceptive charge with renewed fury.”

What do Stock Markets have to do with the Price of Pork in China?  / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Peter_Schiff

By tripling the tax on brokerage transactions, the Chinese government succeeded, at least temporarily, in restraining the surging Chinese stock market. But my expectation is that the correction will be short-lived. It's not that the Chinese stock market is not a bubble, as it clearly is, only that more air will likely inflate it further before it finally bursts.

CRACK UP BOOM series intro
Significant "GLOBAL" stock market action signals explosive bull markets ahead!

This week we are beginning a "new series" of commentaries and mental exercises centered on the concepts of a "Crack-up Boom" by Ludvig Von Mises. As you all know who read me regularly, I will be using history as a yardstick to the future. There are fascinating thoughts which explain many of the things we see unfolding in many, many markets (art, stocks, real estate, etc) worldwide.

Global Liquidity Crisis when the Credit Boom comes to an End / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Mike_Whitney

Stock markets around the world have been skyrocketing lately. In fact, Forbes reported on Tuesday that: “all 22 of the developed-world markets tracked by Morgan Stanley Capital International are in positive territory year-to-date… Emerging markets are looking just as flush. Of the 29 emerging market countries that MSCI tracks, only four — Argentina, Sri Lanka, Russia and Venezuela — are in negative territory.”

There's just one little problem; the Commerce Department announced yesterday that that GDP in the first quarter was revised downward to a measly .6%.

Are the Worlds Stock Markets and Commodity Bubbles Peaking? / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Christopher_Laird

Get this:

  • China is serious about slowing their stock bubbles. They just increased a stamp tax to .3% on stock sales, formerly a .1% rate. This is not a miniscule amount because it is assessed on every trade - they add up. China has raised interest rates repeatedly, and their senior economic leaders have stated that their stock bubbles are rising too fast. China intends to cool their bubbles. More on that, but they may be the ones to break the entire world financial bubbles - first - judging on the reaction to their February 9% stock declines that led to two weeks of serious Asian market crashes - and one 500 point drop in the US DOW - that led to so much volatility that Dow fell behind in the quotes for several hours that day.

How High Can the Stock Markets Go? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_Petillo

Not so long ago a triple point gain, like the one that occurred last Wednesday or a similarly sized loss, a healthy correction that hasn't happened in far too long was serious news indeed. The math suggests why. A 100 gain/loss when the Dow was at 8000 represented a 1.25% move whereas a similar gain in the 13,000 point range coughs up half as much of a move but twice the chatter. 

With the Dow setting new daily records and the S&P 500 now in the same territory, one wonders what kind of news will move traders do change course. What economic tidbit will convince them to pile in with ever greater abandon or take their money and head for the exits?

Dangerous Divergences in the Global Bond and Stock markets / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: Gary_Dorsch

Once upon a time, many years ago, the US stock market lived in fear of a violent band of traders known as the “bond market vigilantes”. Whenever the Federal Reserve's money supply measures grew too rapidly, or the US economy grew too strongly threatening to stoke higher inflation, the “bond vigilantes” would take matters into their own hands, by jacking-up 30-year Treasury bond yields as much as 25 basis points or short-term T-bill rates by 50 basis points in a single day.

Former US Treasury secretary Robert Rubin convinced his boss, President Bill Clinton that taming the “bond vigilantes” by reducing the budget deficit was the best way to reach long-term economic prosperity. As Clinton political guru James Carville famously put it, “I used to think if there was reincarnation, I wanted to come back as the president or the Pope or a .400 baseball hitter, but now I want to come back as the bond market. You can intimidate everybody,” he once quipped. Read full article... Read full article...

Asian Stock Markets Hot or Frenzy? / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: John_Mauldin

The data from the companies which analyze where investors are putting their money tells us there is a lot of money flowing into international funds and especially Asia. This week's Outside the Box we look at a short but thoughtful piece by my good friend and partner Jon Sundt of Altegris Investments. Jon is personally bullish on Asia, but he offers us a graph and some thoughts of which you should be aware before you start putting money into the high flying Asian funds.

I will add a few comments at the end, but let's jump right into Jon's piece.

China Stock Market Crash Changes Nothing / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony here, with an important update on China. Shanghai's stock market tumbled 8.3% on Monday … and that fall came on top of the 6.5% one-day drop we saw last Wednesday.

The reason for the slide: The Chinese Ministry of Finance decided to raise the stamp duty on stock transactions from 0.1% to 0.3%.

In the Heart of The Stock Market Mania / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Captain_Hook

This article was posted for the benefit of subscribers on May 15, 2007

That's where we are at present – right in the heart of the mania. Are we referring to the stock market mania in isolation? Heck no. We are referring to the source of all the manically derived asset bubbles floating round these days, that being the mother of all bubbles then, the credit bubble . And as Doug Noland correctly points out this week in his column, Credit Bubble Bulletin , and as alluded to above, it should be realized these bubbles include more than just ‘investments', but all sorts of things (collectibles), such as fine art . Of course the banking community does not care what people are buying and selling just so long as they are doing exactly that, and at an increasing rate if possible so their job of tinkering with growth rates is eased.

Nolte Notes - The Bull Market Continues! / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

It was Christmas in June for the financial markets, as they got everything they wanted from the economic reports last week. The consensus view after the reports was that the economic slowdown of the first quarter was merely a blip in the overall scheme, and the economic engine has once again sputtered to life and is running well. Judging by the income and spending report, it is very clear that the consumer is not yet done making purchases – however it is unclear how much of the spending is going toward the high and rising energy products. The employment report was a bit better than expected, however some are quibbling about the “birth/death” rates that are a part of the calculation. Without getting too technical, it doesn't refer to employees being born or dying, rather businesses going out or coming into existence.

New Profits in the Old World - Europe / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

When I think of the Old World, among the images that first spring to mind are those of medieval castle towns like Heidelberg, where Rupert the Red founded the fourth university of the Holy Roman Empire in 1386 … or of the Acropolis, rebuilt by Pericles during the Golden Age of Athens between 460 and 430 BC.

It's only on second thought that I remember the modernity of today's Europe.

Similarly, when you think of the European economy, you typically associate it with outdated economic models — burdensome taxation, non-productive social support systems, and a tangled web of government regulations.

Economy
The Reuters/University of Michigan's final index of consumer sentiment increased to 88.3 in May, from 87.1 in April.

The Institute for Supply Management's factory index rose to 55 in May, from 54.7 in April.

The National Association of Realtors reported that pending home resales fell 3.2% to 101.4, the lowest since February 2003. The March report was revised down 4.5%. The index is down 10.2% from April 2006.

Rising mortgage defaults are increasing the supply of houses for sale. Banks and other lenders are raising their lending standards, resulting in home purchases being less affordable to fewer buyers.

By: Andre_Gratian

Stock Market - June Swoon / Summer Rally / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Joseph_Russo

"The Raging Bull" we spoke of a couple of weeks ago, appears to have taken up permanent residence across many sectors of the financial sphere. This bull has been relentless, cunning, and quite masterful in dealing with the plethora of participants who have been eagerly anticipating some type of correction – if not an outright crash!

After 11-weeks of nothing but blue sky, we suspect this bull may simply be growing bored of the dominance it imposes upon bears at will. Perhaps a couple of weeks respite in June ought to be a minimum at which this easily antagonized bull may once again become angered, electing to resume its deceptive charge with renewed fury.

Will China's "Stamping" Out of Stock Speculation Curb Overall Stock Market Speculation? / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Effective yesterday, the Chinese Ministry of Finance increased its so-called stamp tax on stock market transactions from 0.1% to 0.3% in an effort to curb speculation in the Chinese stock market. This stamp tax is nothing but a transactions tax imposed on both buyers and sellers of stocks.In reaction to the increased tax rate, the Shanghai Composite stock index fell 6.5%.
