Dubai's Oil Boom Financial Centre Heading for Bust? / Stock-Markets / Middle East

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Martin Hutchinson writes: Dubai has plenty of qualities that catch an investor's eye.

  • The emirate has the world's only (self-proclaimed) 7-star hotel.
  • Dubai also is home to the biggest financial market in the Middle East, which is itself publicly quoted and trades at 25 times forecast 2008 earnings.

Investing Lessons for Today From Japans Lost Decade of Economic Depression / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: A "Lost Decade" doesn't have to translate into lost profit opportunities. As the global financial crisis continues to escalate, the United States is increasingly facing the prospect of a long malaise that could easily eclipse Japan's Lost Decade of the 1990s in both duration and depth.

And history shows that such periods can be the worst for investors to navigate - especially when they follow a record stock-market run, such as the all-time-highs that U.S. share prices reached last fall.

Bullish Countertrend Rally Developing in Dow Stocks Index / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My pattern and momentum work on the 4-hour Dow Diamonds (AMEX: DIA) price action off of the July 15 low argues that the upleg from the 108.33 low to the 115.65 high (7/21) represents the initial recovery rally leg, and that the weakness into today's low at 113.80 represents a shallow correction of that initial upleg.

The Mother of All Short Squeezes in Financial Stocks.. / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHow do you spell short-selling rally, gentle reader? In this week's Outside the Box we look at several short items (pardon the pun) from various sources, which paint a not pretty picture. The first hit my inbox this morning from Art Cashin (of CNBC fame and also Head Floor Trader for UBS).

" Deconstructing The Rally – The sharp rally that sprang from the new short sale restrictions has been spiky and, in several ways, very powerful. The impact of the short rule change was evident. As Barron's notes, the 150 stocks with the heaviest short interest rallied a stunning 15%. The stocks with the smallest short positions rose only 2%. That may be a function of existing shorts scrambling to cover to pass the new, belated, scrutiny. That thesis got added weight from a couple of areas. The Merrill Lynch results got mostly panned by several analysts and TV pundits. Nonetheless, the stock closed 24% above its lows for the week. Also, the financial sector ETF rose nearly 25% from the lows.

United States Unfolding Financial and Economic Nightmare / Stock-Markets / Recession 2008 - 2010

By: Money_and_Markets

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin D. Weiss writes: The rally you saw last week was little more than a normal, bear-market bounce — predicated on the myth of government omnipotence ... spurred by the blind faith in fiat money ... and triggered by the official attacks on short-sellers.

For investors who jump into financial and other vulnerable stocks now, it's a trap door. But for those who feel like they're still stuck in all the stocks we've been telling you to get rid of, it's an escape hatch. Use it as your selling opportunity. And don't look back.

Stock Markets Endure Another Volatile Week / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

Markets endured another volatile week, with US markets had a better time of it than their European counterparts. There were some clear psychological levels in play last week, as markets fell to fresh multi year lows, before recovering in the second half of the week. The Dow hit 11,000 for the first time since July 2006, and the S&P 500 hit 1,200 for the first time since October 2005. The CAC came close to hitting 4,000 for the first time since May 2005, the Dax hit 6000 for the first time since October 2006, and the FTSE reached its lowest point for over three years.

S&P Fails to Break Inverted Head & Shoulders Neckline Resistance / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In a bull market environment, the picture of the S&P 500 & its SPY ETF, as viewed by the e-Mini S&P 500 chart, would be very different. Let's notice that today's new recovery high at 1269 looks like it could have been an upside breakout from a base-like pattern that resembles an "inverted head-and-shoulders," doesn't it?

The Most Important Chart In the Investment Universe! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany people are now being rudely awakened from slumber with respect to the effects on prices resulting from inflation , even if they only see the effects (rising prices) and not the cause. More specifically, as the cost of energy shoots higher, the lights are finally coming on for many consumers previously in the dark about what lies ahead. They are beginning to realize that even if prices come down from these lofty levels, they will still be high, never mind about going even higher. So, this realization is beginning to change a lot of attitudes, attitudes that were previously reluctant to accept the reality of the situation. Given, it's taking a lot of doing (i.e. oil at $140, etc.), but one would need be ‘brain dead' not to see (feel) the effects of escalating energy and food prices on personal budgets. Denial has worked for many up to this point, but many in this group will also be the ones panicking later on when they finally accept reality.

Global Stock Markets Dancing to the Same Bearish Tune / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFactoring in last week's stock market rebound, I have put together a table of global stock markets' performances over various measurement periods and in both local currency and US dollar terms. The numbers speak for themselves and can best be summarized in a single sentence: Despite the variation in the economic impact of the credit crunch, stock markets have by and large been dancing to the same tune.

Stock Market and Crude Oil at Critical Trading Levels / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Adam_Perl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last couple of months we have been witnessing the outcome of constant aggressive monetary policy. The Fed has used all its weapons to try to keep the U.S economy out of recession, but at the same time they have spurred inflation. With a current fund rate of merely 2%, the Fed has found itself between a rock and a hard place, combating deteriorating economic growth accompanied by accelerating inflation.

Stocks Bear Market Decline Over? / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRichard Russell (Dow Theory Letters): Is the decline over?
“So is the decline over? Anything is possible, but we still have not seen the kind of action that has ended almost every bear market of the last 75 years, according to the Lowry's studies. These previous declines have been characterized by a series of 90% down-days, with the last 90% down-day quickly followed by a 90% up-day.

“Since the May peak, we have seen only two 90% down days – June 6 and June 26. As I said, the ‘normal' situation at the final bottom of a true bear market is a 90% down-day quickly followed by a 90% up-day. So far, this has not occurred.

Fannie and Freddie Rescue Could Result in a Run on the US Dollar / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The end is neigh” was what many despondent investors were starting to believe as the past week kicked off with volatile trading amid concerns that US regional bank IndyMac's demise was a harbinger of many more bank failures.

Furthermore, Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson's plan to rescue the Government Sponsored Enterprises (GSEs), Fannie Mae (FNM) and Freddie Mac (FRE), left investors unconvinced.

Global Financial Crisis Worst Since 1930's Depression / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQ: Are we looking at a financial system "avalanche" rather than a technical bear market, in equities and bonds?

A: In no way can this be seen as a normal bear market. This is undoubtedly the worst financial crisis in the developed world since the 1930s. The only period remotely similar was the bear market of 1973-75, which was itself a part of the extended 1966-82 bear market in US shares. That bear market was driven in part by a 13 fold increase in oil prices from 1972 to 1980. This time we have had a 14 fold increase in oil prices from the $10 low of 1999. Last time we had massive inflation of 20 percent per annum. That has not yet arrived but may well be in the pipeline.

Stock Market Bounce Follow Through / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

I took the opportunity last week to offer a big picture review since it was clear we were at an important area in the major stock indices and, even though it avoided the specificity available to paying members, hopefully it kept readers from seeing a trap door early this week and shorting a bottom. This one is offerred as a follow-up on last week's call for a bottom in banks, a top in oil with a rally in stocks. And, of course, the question everyone wants answered now is whether there will be follow-through to this newfound upleg or did Friday's close end a bounce that will begin a march to new lows starting Monday.

The company is likely to get clearance today to register with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, according to people with knowledge of the plans, who declined to be identified because the decision is confidential.
