Nasdaq (Qs) Poised to Continue Larger Recovery Upleg / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the major equity market ETFs feel like they are moving around quite a bit, actually in relation to the intense volatility during the prior two weeks, this is a pretty calm day! The pattern the Q's (Nasdaq: QQQQ) have carved out since Friday's spike high at 46.99 appears to me to be taking the form of a coil (lower highs and higher lows). As long as 45.59 contains any forthcoming weakness, the integrity of the lower side of the coil will remain intact. Conversely, I think that today's high at 46.64 is a second data point near the top side of the coil.

Massive Credit Crunch Striking Now! / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Martin Weiss writes: A massive credit crunch is striking, and you sit at a critical juncture like none other in history.

Never before have you seen so much wealth at stake. Never before have you seen such massive threats to that wealth. And, fortunately, never before have investors had such powerful tools to protect themselves from these threats!

In just the last few days, the U.S. Federal Reserve has desperately tried to rescue the nation's gigantic $10 trillion mortgage market …

How Far Will the Stock Market Crash Go and What Do we Do Now? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Richard_C_Cook

The “Crash of 2007-08” is underway

The immediate triggers are being described quite well: the collapse of the U.S. subprime mortgage market; the vulnerability of the rest of the economy to the subprime undertow, due to the “efficiency” of the markets in spreading risk; the worldwide overextension of cheap credit; the failure of large institutional investors and Wall Street brokerages to behave responsibly; and the long-term effects of the U.S. trade and fiscal deficits which are now coming home to roost.

Stock Market Technical Analysis : Trimming the Hedgies / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

With so many bombs hitting the tape, and with massive short-covering rallies apparently never far behind, it was suggested last week that less experienced traders stay flat, or at least stay flat more often, as the market structure becomes more and more distorted by outside forces. Still, there were some fantastic setups this week we were able to take advantage of, and from here it looks like there's at least one more big move yet in store.

Muddle Through or End of the World?
An Alphabet Soup of Credit
Turning Nuclear Waste Into Gold (and Back Again!)
Mrs. Watanabe and the Hedge Fund Connection

Where Do We Go From Here?
Hedge Funds to the Rescue!

End of the World or Muddle Through? This week I try to explain in simple terms the very complicated story of how we went from some bad mortgage loan practices in the US to the point of world credit markets freezing up. There is a connection between the retirement plans of Mr. and Mrs. Watanabe in Japan and the subprime problems of Mr. and Mrs. Smith in California. We find the relationship between European banks and problematic hedge funds. And finally, we try and see how we get out of this mess. Oddly, I think it is hedge funds (and maybe Warren Buffett) to the rescue, but not in the way you would think. It is a lot to cover, so let's jump right in. (And there are a lot of charts, so while this will print out long, it is only a little longer than the usual in word length.)

Refueling Psychotic-Optimism As Fed Saves Stock and Financial Markets From Near-Meltdown / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Joseph_Russo

In light of the Feds clandestine shattering of the discount window in the wee-hours of Friday morning, we really do not have much to add to last weeks rant about Ponzi-Regimes coming to the rescue of grossly mismanaged markets.

Down how much? – And already requiring immediate emergency rescue measures?

Last Thursday, stock markets were off their historic highs by around 10%, and most major metropolitan housing-markets are down anywhere from 5% - 10% at best. Certain regions like Manhattan , have experience little if any downward adjustment to their mega-bloated values - some 200% - 300% above their former 1998 values.

Expect More Stock and Financial Markets Tension, But Don't Panic! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

LONDON : “Economists said yesterday that turmoil on global stock markets was likely to persist but ruled out a catastrophic crash in share prices that would hit consumers and their pension funds.” This missive came from London by way of Saudi Arabia .

The Asian Times headline reads, “ Panic Attack: Asian markets take a tumble .” Who do you believe? The “don't panic” people or the “panic attack” crowd? Thursday, the Dow Jones Industrials dropped 340 points by mid-day, then rallied to close down only 15 points. Not a bad rescue, eh? Even with the final hour rescue, the Dow is still down nearly 3% this week.

Lenders take the Jab, Borrowers take the Knockout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Peter_Schiff

The current weakness in domestic markets has recently been magnified overseas as panic spread to foreign investors with exposure to U.S. asset backed debt. Some commentators point to this reaction in an attempt to disprove the belief that foreign assets offer protection from falling U.S. stocks. I believe such conclusions are premature. Global stock markets will soon decouple from ours, and strong returns overseas will occur even as U.S. stocks slump.

Importance of Long Stock Market Earnings Valuation Waves / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Zeal_LLC

Just one month after the US stock markets achieved new all-time highs, today's fear-stricken equity landscape looks radically different. Investors and speculators alike are frantically dumping everything with reckless abandon, regardless of fundamental merit. The resulting carnage is impressive to behold.

Such episodes of wanton fear, though painful, are very healthy for the markets. They are necessary from time to time. In fundamentally-weak sectors, they force leveraged speculators to rein in their leverage and reduce their risk. In fundamentally-strong sectors, they shake out the weak hands who lack the courage to ignore their emotions and lack the faith to ride secular bulls through turbulent spells.

Financial crisis! What to do ... / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson writes: We are in the midst of a financial crisis . Not a downturn. Not a slump. Not a blip. This is a full-blown meltdown. The causes?

Too much housing speculation: The Federal Reserve pumped the economy full of easy money after the tech bubble burst. That money found its way into the housing market, fueling a speculative bubble like no other in modern U.S. history. Now that bubble is popping, too … and the fallout is spreading throughout the financial markets.

Panic Selling As Stock Markets Crash Towards Bull Market Support Levels / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Marty_Chenard

Noon Time Update: We will look at seven charts this Noon time, based on where a number of indexes were at the close yesterday and what the VIX was telling us (last chart).

This first chart is of the DJI and its 200 day moving average. At the close yesterday, it was holding above it, but today it dropped below that support. The DJI is the index that should be the strongest in this down turn, but this morning it dropped below the 200 day moving average. Panic selling levels are high now, and the panic has its own momentum. It will be important to hold the 200 day moving average in the next few days.

2007 Stock Market Crash Update II / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Greg_Silberman

In late July we published a piece called 2007 crash market stock update wherein we described the inter-market picture as shaping up to be eerily similar to that of the 1987 stock market crash. 

In summary: We noted that the stock market had been ignoring a falling bond market for much of 2007 in much the same way as the stock market ignored a falling bond market back in 1987. We further explained that it was not until the Bond market broke below its May lows in September 1987 that all hell broke loose in the stock market and ended up in Black Monday, a one day drop of 22% in the S&P500.

Stock Market Panic In Progress / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

The market is telling officialdom, and specifically Bernanke, that like in the lead up to the 1929 stock market crash (which was 90%), the true health of the economy is not being interpreted correctly, and that official policy is not sufficiently accommodative. As alluded to during the course of the week, this misread and mishandling of the situation has a great deal to do with the stubborn resilience of Chinese stocks , commodities , and freight rates , which are all barometers of the ‘global economy'.This is why the Fed is now suggesting that only a ‘ calamity ' will cause them to soften official policy, because they must get prices under control soon if traditional Presidential Cycle policy considerations are to be managed successfully. What's more, like Greenspan, Bernanke is a gradualist, but he is a rearview mirror gradualist, meaning he actually manages official policy based on history. Again, like the '29 experience, this is causing a misread of measures currently needed to stave off a real deflation risk, which is why prices are falling in spite of supportive price constraints . In a nutshell, people are panicking, and for this reason Monday could be very interesting.

Fingers of Global Financial Markets Instability Returns! / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Ty_Andros

Fingers of Instability – Series Introduction - FIRE!
This marks the return of the “Fingers of Instability” series begun in February of this year, as we look to see these emerging regularly over the coming weeks until they are priced into the market. First let's look at the “shortened” description of what they are from that issue of Tedbits:

This is a metaphor for the present structure of the Global financial systems as practiced by the G7 Central banks and Government Financial officials around the world. I read a missive from a prominent newsletter writer sometime in the last 6 to 12 months and he described a computer study of Sand piles. In this study they piled on grains of sand on a pile one by one. It went on to describe how the mound could grow one grain at a time, and was stable and that as it grew areas of instability emerged and that once it got to critical mass as little as 1 grain of sand could spark a complete collapse of either the whole pile, a major portion of the sandpile, or just a small part of the pile.

MPTrader - Nasdaq (Q's) Need to Hold Support / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

We can see from the big picture of the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) that the price structure has just about completely traversed its 13-month price channel -- from its July 19th high at 50.66 into today's low at 46.53. The ability of the Q's to hold the 46.30 area (should the price structure press to new lows) is imperative if the lower channel support line is to maintain its integrity. Otherwise, the Q's will be heading for a confrontation with its sharply rising 200 DMA, now at 45.35.

Fresh Stock Market Losses Outpace Gold; Bond Yields Slide / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES slipped $5 per ounce to $664 by lunchtime in London on Wednesday, losing 0.7% from Tuesday's US close. Global stock markets, meantime, fell a further 0.9% according to the MSCI index.  

"Gold holds its own in credit crunch," reports today's Fortis Metals Monthly report. Looking ahead, and "given the background noise of rising central bank sales the metal did well to stay above $650/oz [but] it might have trouble staying there as gold mining companies. dehedging slows for the remainder of the year."

Investing in the Melting Tundra / Stock-Markets / Metals & Mining

By: Money_and_Markets

Sean Brodrick writes: On Sunday, I arrived in Yellowknife — a town steeped in rich gold mining history. I had a lot of time to reflect on that history as I took a long walk through town.

Why was I out in the brisk, sub-arctic August weather? Because my cab driver brought me to the wrong hotel from the airport. I didn't discover this until after he had driven off. I tipped him well, too!
