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!

Short Selling The Road To Redemptions / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Brady_Willett

With the financial markets doing their best impression of a tinderbox waiting for a spark, it is not easy to use the word ‘oversold' without cracking a smile. After all, if the S&P 500 - which closed less than 1-point below its 200 DMA yesterday - was really ‘oversold' it would not normally be trading only 6.4% off of its recent highs (market corrections are generally -10% and bear markets are -20%).

Needless to say, this is not a normal stock market, and these are hardly normal times. Rather, the largely secretive dealings of hedge funds control the tape, and unpredictable capital flows from central bankers and foreign investors can swing asset prices wildly about. Talk all you want about corporate America's attractive balance sheet, or those beautiful trailing P/Es, this market is controlled by unknown and volatile forces.

Emerging Markets, Commodities and the US Dollar - Deleveraging / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Christopher_Laird

I just heard a Bloomberg interview with Dr. Marc Faber about the deleveraging in world markets. One of his main points was that, since 2003 about, many US investors moved significant percentages of their money into emerging markets and commodities. As the US economy sinks into recession, and deleveraging causes stock declines, there will be a lot of US money repatriated.

The implications of this are:

  • A strengthening USD (or a force for that)
  • Emerging market stocks will decline faster than US stocks (Faber)
  • General deleveraging by hedge funds will cause overall stock declines

Chinese IPOs Soaring in the U.S.! / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Tony Sagami writes: If you're worried that last week's sell off could continue, or even accelerate, you're not alone. Fortunately, there are plenty of things you can do about it.

I've already instructed my Asia Stock Alert subscribers to take profits on eight stocks, so they should be sitting on a pretty tall pile of defensive cash right now.

Better yet, many of their Asian holdings have been plowing higher despite what is happening to the U.S. stock market. Even during the Dow's painful 387-point one-day drop last week, half of the Asia Stock Alert portfolio positions posted gains.

S&P 500 Index Developing a Topping Pattern Over the Coming Months / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: David_Petch

G'day all. Well, the S&P bottomed around the 1440 level and is set to continue putting in a topping pattern over the next 2-3 months. The analysis today should illustrate the outcome that is somewhat different than the bulls and the bears, Chimeric market behaviour if you will.

The hedge funds (rampant speculation) and financial/mortgage related stocks (from the housing bubble in the US ) are going to cause a significant loss of money that really did not exist. Many hedge funds had pooled capital that resulted in losses 10-15 fold above the entry point. Those with invested capital have nothing, making the losses real. Most hedge funds are locking out clients from being able to liquidate the funds in fear it would cause a financial cascade to the downside. Attempts such as this is like trying to stop flooding by sticking fingers in a dike…… a person only has so many fingers.

What the Fed Did in 1998 and What is Different Now / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: John_Mauldin

This week in Outside the Box we take look at the how the Fed acted in the last debt crisis of 1998 and what they are likely to do this time. How will the Fed address the looming liquidity crisis stemming from the subprime debacle primarily, and from the abused Yen carry-trade, lax lending practices, and excess liquidity, generally? Asha Bangalore, Vice President and Economist at the Northern Trust Company, believes that given the actions taken by the European and Japanese banks in response to credit and liquidity concerns in the markets by an infusion of €200 Billion, and ¥600 Billion, respectively, the Fed will also take the customary action of cutting interest rates to assuage the market at the October 30-31 Fed meeting.

Diverse Asset Class Correlation and Leverage / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

Fund managers and investors have been puzzled why prices across a wide spectrum of assets moved together last week - namely, down. I think it has everything to do with delevering. What is bringing about delevering? When a fund owns assets that are going down in value for some fundamental reason, say mortgage-backed securities whose underlying collateral are defaulting subprime mortgages, and the fund is levered, its creditors start to make margin calls.

Blame Central Banks For Sinking Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Gerard_Jackson

For years I have been warning readers that monetary expansion would inevitably bring recession. This, I forewarned, would probably occur when central banks decided to apply the monetary brakes. This now appears to be the case: hence falling share markets. The problem, as I have explained numerous times, is the grim fact that central bankers in particular and the economics profession in general has no genuine understanding of the nature of interest. In addition, they believe that money is neutral and that a stable price level is necessary to avoid recessions. What we have here is a very dangerous cocktail of ignorance and economic fallacies that has brought the world to the brink of recession.

Financial Market Reactions to Central Bank Liquidity Injections / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: David_Shvartsman

We spent much of last week talking about liquidity, attempting to define or clarify the term by differentiating "market liquidity" and "money liquidity" .

From there, we went on to question how investment markets are impacted by the liquidity created by central banks .

Liquidity Problems and the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Hans_Wagner

Volatility in the stock market has increased with the U.S. markets experiencing dramatic swings in price, especially in the last hour. So what can investors do to deal with this situation?

Stock Market, Interest Rates and the Business Cycle / Stock-Markets / Business Cycles

By: Gerard_Jackson

The turbulence in America's subprime market is being blamed for the current international financial crises, proving once again that our economic commentators are largely clueless on such matters. This is made particularly clear by their approach to rising interest rates that are going to cause a lot of pain. (For example, the ANZ bank has raised its standard variable home loan rate to 8.32 per cent).

A Bull Market in Fools / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Adrian_Ash

"...All financial bubbles need the rabble to pile in before the bubble goes bang. But something's amiss this time round..."

DAY TRADERS in spring 2000, shoe-shine boys in 1929, the "meaner rabble" in 1720's London ...

Glancing at the history of speculative bubbles, as we do all too often here at BullionVault , we find the ordinary sort in fact acts as the very pin itself.

The one thing needful at the top of each bubble, the rabble also take on the role of greatest sucker, too. Piling in as the smart money runs for the exits, the common-or-garden investor pays top price. He or she is then left holding the "asset" as its price collapses...and by that time, the Lear Jets have long since cleared the tarmac...taking the money with them.

Stock Market Brushfire; Will there be a run on the Banks? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Mike_Whitney

On Friday, the Dow Jone's clawed its way back from a 200 point deficit to a mere 31 point loss after the Federal Reserve injected $38 billion into the banking system. The Fed had already pumped $24 billion into the system a day earlier after the Dow plummeted 387 points. That brings the Fed's total commitment to a whopping $62 billion.

By some estimates, $326.3 billion has now been added to the G-7 Nations' intra-banking system to prevent a breakdown. That amount will rise considerably in the weeks ahead as the situation continues to deteriorate. Some readers may remember that on Tuesday, August 7, the Fed announced that it was NOT planning to bail out the market.

My, how quickly things change.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Martin Weiss writes : For the first time since 9-11, central banks around the world are pouring massive amounts of fresh new cash into their markets.

On Thursday alone, Japan pumped in $8.4 billion … Australia injected $4.2 billion … the U.S. pumped in $24 billion … and the European Central Bank flooded its banking system with an unprecedented $130 billion! And on Friday, they did it again , opening the money floodgates in similar quantities.

FTSE 100 Index UK Stock Market Summer Correction Over? / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The US Subprime fallout in the form of the ongoing Credit Crunch has taken the FTSE 100 Index sharply lower in a short space of time. The FTSE has fallen into the target zone of 6050 to 6000 and therefore implies that the correction is over and a strong rally is now due. The ongoing impact of hedge fund failures is likely to impact the stock markets across the world for some time to come therefore will be a factor in generation of short-term volatility in the UK Stock market for many more months.

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis : Intermediate Top Spotting / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dominick

With volatility, illiquidity, and uncertainty roiling equity markets this week, we tuned out the pundits, removed bias, and traded the charts as they evolved and presented the set ups we identified over the weekend. Last Friday, as “Cramerica” was capitulating, we were looking for a tradable bottom, barring some sort of meltdown. To this effect, last weekend's update said:

“From here, Dom acknowledges that the bears must see Thursday's high as an abc for wave 2, making Friday's selling a wave 3, but this is a low probability setup. Dom's working count has this leg ending soon, but also critical levels where this count has to be abandoned. Remember, price levels are the key to trading here, not unconfirmed counts.”

The Grim Reaper Pays A Visit To Wall Street / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Mike_Whitney

Alan Greenspan's low-interest, subprime, snake-oil Caravan took another spin down Wall Street Thursday - ripping up pavement, knocking down power-poles and sending traders scampering for safety. When the dust finally settled, “Maestro's” wrecking ball had lopped another 387 points off the Dow Jones leaving markets reeling and investors cringing in fear. No doubt about it; the mood on the “Street” has taken a 180 overnight. A long procession of bears---marching three-abreast with arms locked—can now be seen winding through downtown Manhattan. Their sense of triumph is palpable.

Meanwhile the last wounded bull—still writhing at curbside-- is being carted off to slaughter.

MORTGAGE BLUES

No one has summed up the disaster in the mortgage lending business better than Paul Muolo of “Broker Universe”:
