For Stocks, Things Are Always Getting Better! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

On Monday evening, May 18, 2015, ECB board member Benoit Coeure gathered together a group of bankers and hedge fund managers. That evening, Mr. Coeure gave them the ECB’s game plan for accelerating bond purchases in the euro-zone. Of course, this was a closed meeting and the general public, the slaves, were not privy to this information that would surely move equity and monetary indexes. This group was given ample time on Tuesday morning to set their positions accordingly. Then, around noon, the public was informed of the new ECB intention. This is known as ‘insider trading’ and it is a felony unless of course the person or institution using the insider information is a banker or bank or hedge fund manager. So, we can all conclude that equity prices are gamed by the same people who rig them. Average investors simply need to understand the criminality.

Stock Market Nice Recovery from Morning Declines / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices started the day off with a very sharp decline, breaking two levels of support, but within an hour had stabilized, and then reversed sharply, taking the Nasdaq 100 from 4490 to over 4535, a 45-point rally in a 3-wave run. They consolidated midafternoon as the S&P 500 made a nominal new high, but the NDX could not confirm it, and rolled over in the last hour to pare back the gains. Nevertheless, it was still a positive session, but narrowly so.

The Stock Market Different Book Theory..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

The market has no trend you can count on. It's been that way for a drop over six months now. When a market is in a trend you can count on, technical analysis flows. Charts flow in a rhythm. When there is no trend there's no flow meaning you can look at a chart and say you think it should do one thing, but you can't count on it, because the lack of trend is like opening a new book each and every day. A non-trending market equals a market of frustration and a lack of consistent action, thus you need to keep your expectations down big time. Not over play because so many set-ups simply won't work. They may look good, but you can't count on getting out of it what you see on a given day. A different book is what causes the biggest losses as many get caught in the moment, with what seems to be rather than losing that expectation.

Stock Market 2007 All Over Again? Mega-Merger Edition / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: John_Rubino

Intel is buying chip maker Altera. Charter is buying Time Warner Cable. All the big drug makers are buying all the mediums-sized ones.

Great news, right? If these huge companies with their top-of-the-line analytical tools and deep insight into their markets think paying way up to build empires is wise, then the stock market, far from being overvalued, must be cheap.

Stock Market All Eyes on The Prize / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: WavePatternTraders

DOW

In my last article I was looking for new highs on the DOW, well we finally got that now, so with the DOW finally making a new high it's at least potentially completed the ending diagonal idea I have been working from the Oct 2014 lows. The only issue I see is the decline from the last peak is a messy move and not that impulsive, so see a retest of the all time highs would not surprise me.

Stock Market Wild Swings Coming! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Brad_Gudgeon

Last time I wrote, the market looked toppy and I was anticipating a 2.5 week low Tuesday (which used to be the dominant 5 week lo). We rallied Wednesday after the expected selling then sold off the rest of the week. I had said that I expected a June 1 top, but after careful study realized that the top would be June 3 instead.

The Mercury Retrograde mid-point low is due 12 calendar days after the initial retrograde point May 18-19, which points to May 30/31 for the low. That means the low will be on June 1 because May 30/31 falls on a weekend. There is also an adjusted Gann 16 TD low due Monday too. I expect initial buying (9/10 pts) on a possible gap up followed by selling down to about SPX 2085/86.

Stock Market Corruption Becomes Business as Usual / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Michael E. Lewitt writes: Week after week, the news is filled with reports of law-breaking by institutions and individuals that hold positions of trust in society. Last week, FIFA, the body that rules the multi-billion dollar business of soccer, was hit by indictments of many of its senior officials who were charged with running a multi-year corruption scheme.

The week ended with former Speaker of the House of Representatives, Dennis Hastert – who for 8 years was the second in line to the presidency – being indicted for violating banking laws in connection with a scheme to pay hush money to a man with whom he had an illicit sexual relationship thirty years ago.

Stock Market Choppy Uptrend May Have Topped / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Tony_Caldaro

Another choppy week, but biased to the downside. The market started the holiday shortened week at SPX 2126. After a gap down opening on Tuesday the market dropped to SPX 2099. It rallied right back on Wednesday to close the gap, hitting SPX 2126. Then it worked its way lower for the rest of the week to close at SPX 2107. For the week the SPX/DOW lost 1.05%, the NDX/NAZ lost 0.40%, and the DJ World index lost 1.4%. On the economic front it was another mixed week. On the uptick: new/pending home sales, consumer confidence/sentiment, and the FHFA housing index. On the downtick: durable goods orders, Q1 GDP, the Chicago PMI, the WLEI, and weekly jobless claims increased. Next week’s highlights are Payrolls, the FED’s Beige book, ISM and the PCE.

Bad GDP... Bad Chicago PMI... Excuses Running Out... Stock Market Yawns... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

There are two different worlds to write about each and every day with regards to the market. There's the real world and Disneyland. In this particular case the real world is the GDP that was reported in the red this morning. The number was anticipated to be negative, so no big shock when that became a reality. The market futures dropped a bit, but really nothing from nothing. The market anticipated a bad number due to the excuse of bad weather across the country during Q1. I think that's a terrible excuse but why not, let the market use it as an excuse simply because it doesn't want to fall very much. Now we fast forward to the present. We wait on the Chicago PMI to see if business is indeed picking up. The number was well below expectations showing recession during April. No more weather excuses Mr. Market. Here's where Disneyland comes in. Who cares! The market fell a bit for a while, but decided excuses were still the way to approach what's happening. Disneyland allowed the markets to recover off the lows. No big fall that would cause a little bit of technical damage.

Investing’s Great Struggle / Stock-Markets / Investing 2015

By: Zeal_LLC

The great endeavor of investing can be distilled down into four simple words, buy low sell high.  They are so basic, so resoundingly clear, that even a child can understand this principle.  Yet still the great majority of investors never achieve significant success.  Even while full-well knowing the core idea of investing, they end up buying high and selling low.  That treacherous struggle of investing must be overcome.

It’s funny, as life is full of simple ideas that are incredibly challenging to put into practice.  Investing is certainly not unique in this regard.  Americans’ expanding waistlines are a great example.  The only way to lean up is some combination of eating less and exercising more.  We all know this basic truth, we all know what we ought to be doing on both fronts, yet it’s still really hard to execute.  Emotions are the reason.

The Pressure Just Shifted from Greece to the US and EU / Stock-Markets / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Raul_I_Meijer

With the 3rd US Q1 GDP print coming in at -0.7% (-3% if not for inventories), perhaps the media spotlights – and lively imagination – can move away from Greece for a few weeks. The US has enough problems of its own, it would seem. For one thing, its Q1 GDP is now worse than Greece’s. Of course its debt is also much higher, just not to the IMF and ECB. But let’s leave that one be for the moment. Though a bit of perspective works miracles at times.

World War D—Deflation - Secular Bear Markets Analysis / Stock-Markets / Deflation

By: John_Mauldin

Everywhere I go I’m asked, “Will there be inflation or deflation? Are we in a bull or bear market? Is the bond bull market over and will interest rates rise?”

The flippant answer to all those questions is “Yes.” And that can be the correct answer as well, but it depends on what your time frame is and what tools you use to measure the markets and inflation. One of the newer members of the Mauldin Economics team is Jawad Mian, who writes a powerful global macro letter from his base in Dubai. He has been making the case for the “end of the deflation trade” (or more properly the return of a reflationary period) and the knock-on effects that would cause. Longtime readers know that I am in the secular deflation camp and ask me why there’s such a seeming difference my views and Jawad’s.

Stock Markets Buy and Hold is Back! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

Tonight I would like to show you some really big consolidation patterns in regards to some big cap tech stocks mainly the networking and semiconductors. I have shown you some of these big bases in the past but now I’m going to create a brand new portfolio based just on these big patterns. It definitely won’t be as exciting as trading in and out all the time as the game plan will be to hold these stocks for a minimum of two years, no trading. This will be an investment portfolio based on these massive consolidation patterns. Big base or consolidation patterns equals big moves.

Stock Market Right Back Up... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

When dealing with the stock market of the past five to six months there is a theme to be understood. Never judge one day's action as if that's the new trend to come. We have seen so many big days both to the up side and down side. There's a huge down day, such as there was yesterday. You feel assuredly that today is going to be either a follow up day, or, because markets were oversold, a slight up-day to unwind. This theme has repeated itself over and over. Big up-days and big down-days are game and you win a close, exciting game. You feel the momentum will be nothing to get excited or unhappy about depending on your position in the market. It can be compared to baseball in that a pitcher throws a great continue on, but the next day your pitcher gets hit hard and you lose.

Stock Market Retracements Appear to be Nearing Completion / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX has overshot its 2117.42 target but seems to be wrapping up its retracement under the 61.8% retracement level. Not only is this good positioning for a short position, but it appears that it will be triggering its small Orthodox Broadening Top. The target for this formation may be as low as 1623.00. In any event, this appears to be fertile ground for a Flash Crash.

Imminent Stocks Bear Market Signaled by Dow Theory ... / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Clive_Maund

Don't be fooled by the new highs in the flagship US stock indices that are being trumpeted on Wall St as a sign of strength - the internals of the market are terrible and getting worse, and one big sign of impending trouble is the Dow Theory non-confirmation of these new highs by other key indices.

First we will see how the S&P500 looks on its charts before moving on to consideration of other key indices. On the 1-year chart for the S&P500 index we can readily see that the breakout to new highs was marginal, on weak volume, and that the index has made very little progress since late last year - it appears to be rounding over and weakening within an uptrend that is converging, which has bearish implications. The fact that it has made new highs has theoretically opened up the possibility of a run to the upper boundary of the uptrend, which is quite some way above, but other factors that we will come to shortly suggest that it will fall way short of that, and they further suggest that this breakout could be false and be followed by a reversal to the downside anytime now.
