Bond Yields vs Stocks and The Fed / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: Ashraf_Laidi

The widely anticipated US August jobs report headlined with a disappointing 173k increase in nonfarm payrolls (lowest since March). The silver lining was in the 44k upward revision of the previous two months and the decline in the unemployment rate to fresh seven-year lows of 5.1% from 5.3%. The decline 41K decrease in the labour force was too small to reduce the participation rate, which remained unchanged at 62.6%.

Stock Market Bulls Set To Be Tasered Again - Imminent Crash, Severe Downleg... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Clive_Maund

The stockmarket is toxic! It's very important that you don't get seduced by the old siren song of Wall St about "buying the dip" and other nonsense like "being selective". While these strategies have worked up to now, they won't any longer, because we are now in a bearmarket, and furthermore it looks like we are on the verge of another plunge.

Investors Cash in On a Strong U.S. Dollar and Weak Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: ...

Michael E. Lewitt writes: Investors looking for a V-shaped, "buy-the-dip" market recovery were sorely disappointed last week as the major indices took another tumble.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost another 541 points or 3.2% to close at 16,102.38 while the S&P 500 dropped 68 points or 3.4% to 1921.22. The Dow is now solidly in 10% correction territory from its 18,351.40 closing high earlier this year and down 9.7% year-to-date.

Tracking Stock Market Investor Sentiment with Credit Spreads / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

Long time readers of this site are aware that successful traders/investors learn how to read market sentiment. Positioning yourself on the correct side of a market is the key to profits. Do this, and do it consistently, and you will make money. Don’t do this and you will lose money. It is a very simple yet very profound axiom that sadly many seem never to learn.

“Fighting the tape”, is the expression we use when characterizing those who fail to approach markets objectively, but who insist on reading their own bias or belief system INTO a market rather than listening to what the market is saying to them.

How Stock Market Crisis Creates Opportunity / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Investment_U

Anthony Summers writes: Last week, we looked at the largest percentage losses in the Dow since 1965. We learned that the months August through November saw the highest concentration of single-day losses of 3% or higher.

In today’s chart, we’re going to look at the market’s largest gains. And just like before, we wanted to know the months when they were most common.

Stock Market Dog Day Afternoons / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jesse

The Fed got what they wanted today besides the much weaker than expected jobs report.

The Unemployment Rate dropped to 5.1%, largely on the number of people who have been unemployed for so long that they are no longer counted as part of the workforce. Hence the record low 'Labor Participation Rate.'

Stock Market Investors Destined to Lose; What you can do to improve your odds / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Sol_Palha

Uncertainty and mystery are energies of life. Don't let them scare you unduly, for they keep boredom at bay and spark creativity. - R. I. Fitzhenry

The average person regardless of their education or lack off usually is on the receiving end of the stick when it comes to investing in the markets. The reason for this quandary is really very simple and predicated upon the fact that the average person’s decision-making process is driven by their emotional state. Successful investing and emotions do not go together; it’s an awful mix, and the outcome is always the same; stress and loss.

Global Stock Markets Are Between Apocalypse And Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: I_M_Vronsky

Major world stock markets are all in a BEAR MARKET MODE…cash is king horizon to horizon…universally! Death Cross patterns continue to spread through most international stock markets like an epidemic gone viral (A Death Cross pattern is when the 10-week moving average falls below the 40-week moving average). Moreover, history is testament that September is marked by horrific stock losses during the past 40 years.

Central Planning, Politics, Economics and The Santelligram / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Rick Santelli may be one of the last speakers of truth left in the mainstream financial space.

Santelli is a former commodities trade – now a popular CNBC commentator, broadcasting from Chicago.

He is treated like a sad clown brought out for entertainment effect, where you brace for the extreme. In his case, this often manifests as an angry rant.

Stock Market Flag Lives On...Jobs Report Poor.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

The highly watched and anticipated Jobs Report came out this morning. Folks anxious to see if the economy is as strong as most hoped. The verdict was a poor one for the economy. The believers shot down. The job creation came in approximately 50,000 short. Not what Fed Yellen wanted to see, and not what the market really wanted to see, either. It appears to me that folks are more focused on a true economic recovery than worrying about one single rate hike from the Fed. With the economy struggling for growth it's clear to all that even if the Fed raised rates one time there's no way there would be a regular cycle of hikes for some time to come. At this point, the market may actually want this hike to come so it can get it out of the way.

Another Stock Market Roller Coaster Ride / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

SPX Premarket is down 30 points as I write. As you can see, the next support level is at or near 1900.00, if it holds.

The much-awaited payroll number is out. ZeroHedge writes, “The "most important and anticipated payrolls number ever", or at least since the last payroll number, is out and it is a doozy at only 173K, it is a huge miss to the 217K expected (and almost in line with LaVorgna's forecast). This was the worst monthly payrolls number since March, and the second lowest number in 19 months. However, the curious twist is that the July and June NFPs were both revised higher to 245K, making the net revision up 44K.”

The Real Threat from China's Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: ...

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Conventional wisdom at the moment says that China's coming unglued and that the country's stock markets pose a grave danger to global investors. It's communist, it's a Ponzi scheme, it's ruled by insiders, it's leveraged up to its eyeballs, ghost cities… all the usual tired old arguments are being rolled out as if they're somehow new again.

In reality, the real risk isn't being reported. In fact, it's not even being talked about.

The Stocks Bear Market Everyone Saw Coming / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

The title lets you know where this article is going.  For such a routine correction in the US stock market, the Psych/Sentiment backdrop has gotten way out of whack.  Do some analysis on Rydex Bull/Bear fund allocations among investors and you will find a historic knee jerk reaction into bear funds over bull funds (by those who still use Rydex funds).

Why September’s Stock Market Volatility Is a Huge Opportunity for Options Traders / Stock-Markets / Options & Warrants

By: ...

Tom Gentile writes: The last few weeks of trading have been tough to say the least. After the crash on August 24 that sucked trillions from the markets in a matter of minutes, the markets clawed their way back and held their own for about a week. Then, just two days ago, they fell again, this time dropping by 3%.

It’s no secret that I think this volatility will continue, at least in the short-term, and the best way to weather the storm is to make sure you’ve got options in your portfolio.

Stock Market Chokin’ on the Splinters / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: John_Mauldin

It’s been a tough couple of weeks.

I keep a mostly hedged book, long and short, so it’s rare that I get my head caved in on every position at the same time. But that’s pretty much what has happened. My shorts haven’t worked because they’re either rate-sensitive or Canadian banks. Meanwhile the longs, which include a lot of emerging markets—well, you know what has happened with those.
