Systemic Failure of the United States- Game Over / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe are in historically unprecedented times. The foundation is being laid for a default of USTreasurys in the wake of the greatest regulatory failure in modern history, and the collapse of the US financial system. Anyone who cannot see that suffers from poor vision, chronic nostalgia, low mental wattage, a paycheck from Wall Street, a post in financial press media, or owning an Economics advanced degree. So many changes come with each passing day, not week, that it boggles the mind. Many of us predicted $100 updays for gold, and we almost saw one. The wheels came off the US financial wagon long ago, but only now that fact is being recognized. The monetization largesse finally has gone beyond the corrupt bailouts of fraud kings on Wall Street.

The Real Reason for the Global Financial Crisis…the Story No One’s Talking About / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Are you shell-shocked? Are you wondering what's really going on in the market? The truth is probably more frightening than even your worst fears. And yet, you won't hear about it anywhere else because “they” can't tell you. “They” are the U.S. Federal Reserve and the U.S. Treasury Department, and they can't tell you what's really going on because there's nothing they can do about it, except what they've been trying to do – add liquidity.

UK FSA Bans Hedge Fund Short Selling After Attack on HBOS / Stock-Markets / Government Intervention

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe FSA in a statement issued a short while ago effectively bans hedge fund short-selling as of midnight tonight of financial stocks. This follows just 24 hours from my analysis ( Hedge Funds Crash Halifax, HBOS Rescued by Lloyds TSB) that in the wake of the HBOS collapse recommended UK government take immediate action to regulate short selling of financial institutions so as to allow the distressed banks time to negotiate with possible merger partners than to be forced into shot-gun weddings or worse as a consequence of relentless hedge fund short-selling that results in market panic actions that acts as a force of great instability for the whole of Britain's financial system.

Central Banks Swapping Bad Debt for Cash / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"...Monetize labor, monetize stocks, monetize the farmers, monetize real estate..."

DAMNED IF THEY DO , damned if they don't, politicians the world over are looking pretty sheepish right now. Nationalizing failed banks, mortgage lenders and insurance firms hardly makes for a strong election pitch. It won't do much to coax fresh risk capital into shoring up financial balance-sheets, either.

China Stock Market ETF Near-Term Bottom? / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

My near and intermediate-term work on the iShares China ETF (AMEX: FXI) indicates that the September 17 low at 30.25 and the upmove into this morning's high at 33.48 established the first coordinate in a near-term bottoming process, which if accurate argues for a recovery period that propels the FXI to the 37.00/50 area prior to the completion of the initial advance. The only question here is how much of the initial pop (30.25-33.48) will be retraced on US market weakness? We are about to find out.

Stock, Commodities and Currency Futures Markets Analysis / Stock-Markets / Futures Trading

By: INO

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe December NASDAQ 100 was higher due to short covering overnight as it consolidated some of Wednesday's decline. Stochastics and the RSI are oversold, diverging but are bearish signaling that additional weakness is possible near-term. Closes below March's low crossing at 1703.75 would open the door for a possible test of weekly support crossing at 1527.12 later this fall. Closes above the 20-day moving average crossing at 1809.97 are needed to confirm that a short-term low has been posted. The September NASDAQ 100 was up 23.00. pts. at 1670.00 as of 5:55 AM CST. First resistance is broken support marked by March's low crossing at 1703.75. Second resistance is the 10-day moving average crossing at 1735.52. First support is Wednesday's low crossing at 1639.75. Second support is weekly support crossing at 1527.12. Overnight action sets the stage for a higher opening by December NASDAQ 100 when the day session begins later this morning.

Drowning Fed Swimming Against the Credit Crisis Tide / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: If there's one lesson you can take away from this financial crisis, it's this: Whenever the U.S. Federal Reserve squares off against the financial markets, it ends up as the loser.

In recent weeks, I've written several articles suggesting that the credit crisis isn't over and detailed the three indicators that led me to this conclusion - despite what the politicians, the pundits and all the other so-called "experts" would have you believe.

Comrade Bernanke and the Socialist Republic of the United States / Stock-Markets / Nationalization

By: Peter_Schiff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy nationalizing nearly 80% of AIG for $85 billion, the Fed is doing a lot more than simply flushing taxpayer money down the toilet.  The greater wrong is allowing the agency that has the power to print money to take control of a private enterprise, especially without the approval of the company's shareholders.  The move represents the largest lurch toward socialism that this country has ever seen, and signals the end of the vibrancy of America's once vaunted free market economy.  Since there is no limit to the amount of money the Fed can create, there is no limit to the number of assets they can acquire.

Financial Markets Fear and Uncertainty Remain After AIG Bailout / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"The U.S. government seized control of American International Group Inc. -- one of the world's biggest insurers -- in an $85 billion deal that signaled the intensity of its concerns about the danger a collapse could pose to the financial system. The step marks a dramatic turnabout for the federal government, which had been strongly resisting overtures from AIG for an emergency loan or some intervention that would prevent the insurer from falling into bankruptcy. Just last weekend, the government essentially pulled the plug on Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc., allowing the big investment bank to go under instead of giving it financial support."

Nasdaq Q's Signaling Technical Bottom / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In a "normal" market environment, if the Q's exhibited the current technical set-up that shows a glaring positive momentum divergence, the form of a completed downleg from the 8/15 high at 48.57 into the AM's low at 41.41, and a rally (today) that has subdivided into what I interpret as a bullish "recovery form," I would be very enticed to enter a new long position. In fact, our model portfolio is long based on the explained technical set-up. HOWEVER, we all know that this is not a normal market.
