Financial Markets Signaling Major Turning Point? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Black_Swan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs the run towards safe-haven assets over? Major threats to financial markets certainly haven’t disappeared overnight. But it appears as though risk-appetite has returned that quickly. Of course, it can also vanish just as quickly. Either way it’s still something that needs to be monitored.

Credit Crisis Worst is Over- We'll Believe It When We See It! / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Regent_Markets

"Sell in May" says the old stock market adage, but the bulls were in no mood for old wives' tales last week. Markets were in rally mode after the better than expected US jobs report, and news of more liquidity injections from the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve did what most traders were expecting them to do in cutting rates another quarter percent down to 2%.

Stocks Trending Higher on Better than Expected Economic Statistics / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Election years that fall in the 8th year of the Decennial pattern call for consolidation in the early part of the year followed by a strong finish. But the 6-yr cycle which is scheduled to bottom in late Summer/early Fall could also play a restraining role, followed by an eventual bull market top in 2009-2010.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The intermediate consolidation came to an end on 3/17. The index is now in a cautious uptrend which probably has a little farther to go.

Investor Sentiment Improves on Worst of Credit Crisis Behind Us / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May,” said Edwin Way Teal.

And so it seemed during the past week as we witnessed a further improvement in investor sentiment and risk appetite, supported by the viewpoint that the worst of the credit crisis might be behind us. The end result by Friday's close was strong gains for stock markets (with the Volatility Index at its lowest level since December), a further recovery of the US dollar, a sell-off of most commodities, and a weak undertone in government bond markets.

Non-Farm Payrolls- Lies, damned lies and statistics / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe quote has been attributed to Benjamin Disraeli and popularized by Mark Twain. It could be applied to today's Employment Report . The press headline reads, “ Nonfarm payrolls down 20,000; unemployment rate unexpectedly falls.” Folks, these numbers have been massaged to get the “right” outcome.

For example, in April, the number of persons working part time for economic reasons increased by 306,000 to 5.2 million. This level was 849,000 higher than in April 2007. These individuals indicated that they were working part time because their hours had been cut back or because they were unable to find a full-time job. 5.2 million workers comprise 3.8% of the alleged workforce.

Equities Uptrend Weakened by Surging Crude Oil / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

In just about the past 24 hours, crude oil prices have rocketed from a corrective low of $110.30 to this AM's intraday high at $116.18 so far- just a 5% gain, that's all! So far, the rally in oil, an ETF of which is the US Oil Trust (AMEX: USO), has recovered about 60% of the prior decline from the all-time high at $119.93 to yest.'s low at $110.30. If June crude hurdles and sustains above $116.20, then I will be expecting a retest of $119.93.

Financial Stocks Break Out / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

This morning the Financial Select SPDR (AMEX: XLF) broke out of a 6-week bullish coil pattern that represents the digestion period after the initial upmove from the 3/17 low at 22.1 to the 3/24 high at 27.37 (+23%). With today's surge out of the coil, the XLF has started a new upleg that should propel the financial index towards a test of resistance at 27.80-28.00 next, on the way to an optimal target zone of 29.50. Only a break below 26.40 will wreck the developing upside follow-through from the March low. Read full article... Read full article...

Bearish Stock Market Wedge Patterns- Yorba TV Show / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday I want to talk about wedges (not wedgies).  Especially the bearish kind of wedge.  We have them in a lot of indexes, namely in the SPX, the NDX and the EEM.  Bearish wedges are continuation patterns of an existing trend. A wedges is formed by a counter-trend correction and it leans against the prevailing advance or decline.  In this case, a rising wedge is bearish and a falling wedge is bullish.  The wedge pattern usually retraces one-half to two-thirds of the prevailing move before failing or reversing.  Volume usually contracts during the formation of the wedge, while increasing after the break down or breakout.  My source is John Murphy's book, Technical Analysis of the Futures Markets.

A Good Reason To Sell Stock Market Investments- Taxes / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Paul_Lamont

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast month we stated: “we should expect rocket-launched (oh they've saved us) bear market rallies.” Since that time, the DJIA has had two separate blastoffs. That's all it took for investors to forget about the massive deflation that is happening in U.S. neighborhoods . We view the rise of the last two months as a breather before more serious selling takes hold. Goldman Sachs agrees and is warning ‘delusional' investors of a sell-off of “a further 15pc over the ‘near term.'” Warren Buffett has also recently stated “ the recession will be more severe than most expect.

Stock Markets Headed Lower into June-Sell in May and Go Away / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe old stock trader's saying of “sell in May and walk away” appears to be unfolding right on schedule this year. And with the expected major low coming in June, for the next 2 months, investors may wish to sit on the sidelines to watch the show and keep their investing on hold. If the last three major lows (March 2007, August 2007 and January 2008) were any example, the trough in June could be quite interesting. No one can say that this market is boring.

Worst is Not Over for Stock Market Falls, Credit Crisis Or Fed Rate Cuts / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Ashraf_Laidi

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCommentators and pundits alike have erroneously stated that last week's highs in US equity indices broke important technical levels. The Dow has not only failed to breach above a key trend line resistance of 12,920, prevailing since the October highs but also failed to breach the 50% retracement from the same high to the January lows. Similarly, the S&P500's major resistance stands at the 1,410 trend line resistance acting since the October 10 highs. We remind our readers that these recurring failures are no coincidence but instead a technical failure that is largely in synch with prolonged economic uncertainty.

Food Price Inflation, Monetary Policy & Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Food Crisis

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe second is by good friend and Maine fishing buddy David Kotok, the chief investment officer of Cumberland Asset Managers ( www.cumber.com ). He was recently in Africa where he met with the head of the central bank of a small country with headline inflation of 10%. The problem is that "core inflation" is 5% and food inflation is 15%, yet accounts for 50% of the GDP. He asked a group of financial thinkers (including your humble analyst) to ponder what that central banker should do. Do you set high rates and target overall inflation or set lower rates and not worry about food inflation.

Why the Credit Crisis is Far From Finished / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week in Outside the Box we look at two brief essays which give us different perspective on the Continuing Crisis. The first is by Mohamed El-Erian, the co-chief executive and co-chief investment officer of Pimco. His book, 'When Markets Collide: Investment Strategies for the Age of Global Economic Change', will be published by McGraw Hill in June, and it will be on my summer reading list. El-Erian argues in the thought-provoking piece from the Financial Times that the crisis is still far from finished, and that those who think we are returning to more placid times may be surprised when volatility suddenly becomes even more pervasive.

Stock Markets Buoyed by Decent Earnings and Interest Rate Cuts / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

With all the hand wringing about consumer confidence falling to 25+ year lows, it becomes much easier to understand IF we make the assumption that we are in a recession. Others worry about the self-fulfilling prophesy – if we believe we are in a recession, it will be so. However much of what is happening today was planted over a year ago. This too is the reason for why all the rate cuts made by the Fed have had little impact upon investors and the economy. However, the cuts will eventually have an impact – but that is not likely until later in the year. A complicating factor in today's economy is the lack of lending “interest” by banking institutions.
