Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report - 24th Mar 07 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: Last week new lows evaporated. On the NASDAQ new lows declined on both Thursday and Friday in spite of declines in the NASDAQ composite (OTC). The picture was similar on the NYSE with only 7 new lows recorded on Friday.

Short Term
Martin Zweig's up volume indicator got a lot of publicity in technical circles when it was triggered last week. The indicator was also triggered on March 6, but analysts' were probably too afraid to notice that time.

Amex Oil Index (XOI) getting set for a possible strong Upside Breakout / Stock-Markets / Oil Companies

By: David_Petch

The chart of the XOI is getting more and more interesting each week. The XOI has shot up the past few days and is set to break out of an apparent wedge structure; should it break to the upside then the next impulsive move is underway. The Bollinger bands are still contracting, indicating a contraction in volatility (sorry, not revealing much information in their current pattern).

Stock Market Bounce due to Fed Liquidity / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

The Fed pumped in a ton of liquidity that is supporting the market's up movement. Sometime next week, the S&P 500 (and the other indexes) will meet resistance when they close their gaps as seen on the chart below.

Financial Markets Manipulation - The Rise of the Bernanke Put Option? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson - Did you see that monster rally on Wednesday afternoon? The one that sent the Dow up more than 150 points in the blink of an eye? If you're wondering what caused it, I have an answer for you …

Federal Reserve Board Chairman Ben Bernanke is trying out the “Greenspan put!”

Alan Greenspan, our last Fed Chairman, was notorious for solving market crises by lowering interest rates. In fact, the Wall Street crowd even dreamed up a nickname for this — the Greenspan put.

Stock market and natural resources recovery continues / Stock-Markets / Metals & Mining

By: Clif_Droke

The market indicated its super-oversold condition to us soon after the Feb. 27 sell-off based on volume and put/call ratio indications. The bottom has since been confirmed and Wednesday witnessed the big rally day everyone has been waiting for. The market rewarded our patience on Wednesday by rallying 24 points, or 1.71%, as measured by the S&P 500 index (SPX).

As of Wednesday the number of stocks making new 52-week highs on the NYSE was 239 versus only 19 new lows. The number of new lows over the past week has held consistently below 40, a sign that internal selling pressure is almost non-existent. That's a big positive from a technical standpoint and it proves that the recent damage done by the Feb. 27 panic selling was over-done and bound to be recovered. As of Wednesday we've recovered most of those losses as measured by the SPX.

FTSE 100 and Dow Jones Stock Market Analysis and Outlook / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The FTSE last week fell and hit its target of 6000, followed by the anticipated bounced as summarised below. (Article - 13th March 07)

FTSE 100
The FTSE 100 is targeting 6000, there is a strong probability of the FTSE holding 6000 (5990 low). Further downside appears limited in the immediate down swing.

The FTSE continued its rally on Monday to complete the target requirements for the bounce from 6000. I.e. to effectively put in a lower high, and therefore now again targets a trend back to 6000.

Another View on the recent Stock Market Panic / Stock-Markets / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

Speaking engagements are one of the more useful aspects of my job.

This weekend, I'm at the Renaissance Waverly Hotel in Cobb County, Georgia, for the WealthExpo.

I look forward to meeting many readers and hearing of their concerns and queries, and I'll be summing them up in next week's Utility & Income. Utility Forecaster subscribers please note: This issue's Roundup has a brief, between-issues roundup of every Portfolio recommendation.

As the past week's extremely turbulent market events showed yet again, the world's investment markets are increasingly connected.

Events that may seem wholly unconnected on the other side of the globe are increasingly affecting investors everywhere.

Nolte Notes - Financial Markets attempting to make a bottom in the short-term / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The issue du jour has been alternating between the sub-prime mortgage “contagion” and China trying to slow their economic growth and by extension the speculation in their markets. Banks, brokerage firms as well as loan companies directly involved in the mortgage business are being affected, however no one is quite sure how pervasive the problem is (or can be) and ultimately the impact upon the consumer and the economy.

Retail sales came in below expectations as weather was cited as a problem (what IS good shopping weather?) and brokerage earnings reports outlined some problems with their sub-prime mortgages – but little else was disclosed. China is a whole separate issue, as their local market has doubled in less than a year and the government has hiked both interest rates (again this weekend) and increased investment requirements for speculation.

Three Sweeping Events in China's Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Money_and_Markets

Suddenly, just in the past week, China has jumped ahead with three sweeping reforms to solidify its growth, bolster its financial markets, and more rapidly transform itself into a 21st century market economy.

Each step, when taken separately, is fuel for more growth. All three, when combined, are electrifying.

Whether or not these reforms bring more political freedom to China remains to be seen. But they're likely to set off a chain reaction of further legal changes, and ultimately, an end to nearly all vestiges of communism in China's economy.

Food prices comprise about 20% of the CPI. They increased 0.8%, the most since April 2005, after a 0.7% rise in January.

S&P Stock Market Analysis & Forecast : Knockdown, Drag Out / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Dominick

“I also think the boxing gloves might come off and we'll be in for a real street fight at the first gap off the lows.”

If you read last week's update, then you should've been expecting the total bull vs. bear streetfight that broke out like a gang riot at Wednesday's lows.

But did you have the guts to pull the trigger?

There were two things I mentioned last week that should have had readers buying Wednesday's lows with no sweat. The first was the quote above, and the second was this:

Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report - 17th March 2007 / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: The weakness that began late last month should end soon, although, there is likely to be one more leg down.

Short Term
New lows dry up quickly after a bottom has been reached.

The first chart is an update of one I showed last week, it covers the past 6 months showing the S&P 500 (SPX) in red and a 10% trend of NYSE new lows (NY NL) in brown. Dashed vertical lines have been drawn on the first trading day of each month and NY NL has been plotted on an inverted Y axis to make the chart easier to read (up is good).

The Yen Carry Trade, Mortgages and Fingers of US Housing Instability / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: John_Mauldin

This week we look at the yen carry trade, delve deeper into the mortgage lending world, and see if we can find a possible connection between them and the economy in general through something called complexity theory. As I have written for many months, I think the subprime mortgage problems are going to be the catalyst for a recession. We look at some ways that the contagion in this small part of the housing market could spread.

Bubbles have consequences far beyond their causes when they burst. That is because they encourage irrational behavior and expectations not just in the asset that is rising in price, but in surrounding areas. As an example, remember the internet bubble? There were 350 internet stocks at the end of 1999, comprising a mere 6% of the market cap of total US equities. But the NASDAQ dropped by over 70%. The damage was not confined to just internet stocks.

Stock Market Relative Strength Analysis Suggest More Falls in Share Prices / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

We don't show this chart very often, but one on the things that our paid subscribers see every morning before the market opens is our Ratio of the % of Stocks with Upward Strength vs. the % with Downward Weakness.

Every night, we run a strength measuring analysis of all the stocks on all the indexes ... on over 8,000 stocks. This is a measurement of the broad market for every stock with a value over $2.00.

Why is this important?

Very simply ... a market that is rallying up has more stocks trending up than down, so its ratio is a positive number. The higher the ratio number is, the stronger the rally gets. The opposite is also true ... when the Ratio is negative, then there are more stocks in a down trend compared to those in an up trend, and therefore the market trends down.

US Utilities Analysis - The Greed Factor / Stock-Markets / US Utilities

By: Roger_Conrad

“Greed is good,” says Michael Douglas' Gordon Gekko in Oliver Stone's cult classic, Wall Street. Undeniably, the world's financial markets are based on self-interest, which is why they work so well moving capital around the globe. Money will only go where it can be used profitably--that is, filling a need and thereby increasing the world's wealth.

Markets work best, however, when the self-interest driving them is enlightened. In other words, there's a huge difference between decisions made solely to grab a big payday and those based on sound business principles.

Investing in Malaysia and my take on the Stock Market Falls / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

I'm writing to you from the 33rd floor of the Kuala Lumpur Hilton, in the capital and largest city of Malaysia. One of three main Malaysian territories, metropolitan Kuala Lumpur is home to 6.9 million of Malaysia's 26.6 million citizens.

I've been here in the city, which locals call “KL,” for three days. Let me sum up what I've observed: KL, and Malaysia in general, are hotter than hot! And I don't mean just the weather, which is 97 degrees and humid. I'm talking about the country's economy.

Chic, vibrant, youthful, exciting, buzzing — those are just some of the words I'd use to describe the scene here. Like other Asian cities, KL is a melting pot. There are people of original Malay descent, along with Chinese, Indians, and other indigenous ethnic backgrounds.

The Corrective Rally is over as the Stock Markets tumble on more Subprime bad news / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Nadeem_Walayat

More subprime bad news hit the Dow as it closed down 242 points at 12,075, dragging the FTSE lower to 6161, which had earlier in the day rallied strongly to 6276. The sell off had started in Asia with many indices down between .5% and 1%.

The continuing, and one could say expected bad news from the US Housing market was from the US Mortgage Bankers' Association survey which showed that 0.54% of all loans began the foreclosure process in Q4 of 2006, the highest in the organisation's 37 year history of recording such statistics. This news again raised the strong possibility of the US going into recession later this year.

Nolte Notes - Volume Signals Stock Market Correction to Resume / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

The growing and contracting economy seems to be growing again, after it was brink of collapse just last week. China and sub-prime lending were going to be the ruin of our economy; today they are contained and are an issue for merely a few. The employment report was better than expected (housing hasn't hurt job gains) and trade has improved some (although not with China ). Interest rates went from forecasting cuts fairly soon, to once again flattening out, and discussions about rate increases are back in vogue. Starting with employment – although the gains were better and revisions to historical data were higher, the fact is the average payroll gains this year is substantially behind the average gains of last year, so they are definitely slowing.

Rise of the (Selling) Machines - Threat of Automated Trading to the Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Michael_J_Panzner

In the popular 1984 film, The Terminator , current California governor and former actor Arnold Schwarzenegger plays a cyborg sent back in time to eliminate the mother of future leader John Connor before he could be born. Single-minded and highly developed, the robotic killer relentlessly pursues his intended prey throughout the movie, despite strong resistance fromF the hero's supporters, although the good guys eventually win out in the end.

While the story is pure fantasy, some may not realize that in the stock market there are the equivalent of dangerous man-made automatons lurking in every corner. Often technology-based, they are powerful, sophisticated, and difficult to keep under complete control. Yet they are exerting a growing and pervasive influence on prices. Unfortunately, these potential share-price assassins, if they were to be suddenly unleashed all at once, represent a Terminator-like threat to financial markets, especially if conditions are just right.
