Is Europe Worth the investment? / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: GoldSilverWorlds

Europe has often been portrayed as a drag on the world economy. Although it had - and still has - its fair share of problems, are things really as gloomy as they seem? In this article, we aim to analyze Europe more, examine how things really are, and answer the question of whether an investment in European equity markets makes sense or not.

The U.S. Dollar's Move Is More Dangerous than You Think / Stock-Markets / US Dollar

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: With earnings season here, what's lost in the "oohing and aahing" over the incoming results is a reasoned look at what's influencing the dollar's move and, more importantly, the effect it will have on our wallets, if not today, certainly down the road.

Earnings and corporate reports are a long game, and that game is in the early innings. Investors need to understand the reasons behind the strength in the dollar, why it is likely to persist, and how we need to prepare…

Half a Stocks Bubble Off Dead Center / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: John_Mauldin

I can sense a growing unease as I talk with investors and other friends, from professional market watchers and traders to casual observers. What in the Wide World of Sports is going on? It is not just that markets are behaving in an unusual and volatile manner (see chart below showing multiple double-digit moves in the last few months); it’s that the data seems to be so conflicting. One day we get data that shows the economies of the developed world to be slowing, and the next day we get positive numbers. The ship of the economy seems to be drifting rudderless.

Is U.S. Stocks Bull Market's Death Imminent? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Clif_Droke

A common refrain from commentators over the last year or so is that the bull market in U.S. equities is “long in the tooth.”  The very use of this phrase implies a market which has reached a stage of decrepitude from which only bad things can result.  “Long in the tooth,” in other words, implies the imminent demise of the bull and the birth of a new bear market.

Stock Market Topping Scenarios / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Wave (v) of [c] may not be complete yet. Assuming the labels and structure are correct, we may arrive at the final target for Wave (v). Since Wave (iii) is approximately 50% larger than Wave (i), we may assume that Wave (v) may seek equality with Wave (i) at 2115.84. This does not make Wave (v) of [c] the all-time high, but it gives us a minimum measure for Wave (v).

Another measure is that Minor Wave 3 is approximately 50% the size of Wave 1. Since the calculations must be a Fibonacci sequence, I suggest that Minor Wave 5 may be 31.8% the size of Wave 1, targeting 2126.47 as a probable target. This measure would create a final all-time high in SPX.

Stock Market April Cycle Low / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Ed_Carlson

Although my Hybrid Lindsay forecasts always assume a small time window surrounds any single-date point forecast, the forecast for a high on April 15 (see last week’s commentary) was spot-on. The work of George Lindsay deals with time (not price) and tells us that the pullback following last week’s high should be over quickly.

Stock Market Back To Near The Breakout... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

Get near the top and sellers come in. Get to the bottom and buyers come in. Five months of sideways action does not feel good as there's always frustration felt by everyone. One week the bulls feel good, the next week the bears feel good. But it doesn't last for anyone. You'd think, for sure, something's about to happen based on technical's, but then those technical's stop working, and you get reversals you just normally don't see. After a while both sides stop trusting what they see, and who can blame them to be honest. There have been multiple times in the past month, let alone the past three to four months, when it seemed just about guaranteed that either a breakout or breakdown was imminent based on previous short-term action.

Stock Market Bears Get Slaughtered Despite Greece Counting Down to Grexit Financial Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Friday's stock market plunge gave great hope to the bears who had been cocka-doodle-dooing all weekend that the top was once more in and that the bear market had finally definitely begun this time, only to find themselves once more gorged to death Monday morning as the Dow has already virtually retraced ALL of last Friday's plunge which illustrates what I have consistently written about for the past 6 year duration of this stocks bull market that remains on track to be one of the greatest bull markets in history. A bull market that has consistently been bet against by the majority of so called market analysts for its entire post 2008 financial collapse bull run. Where FEAR has governed the status quo, FEAR of a REPEAT of what happened in 2008 when any experienced analysts well understand that whilst a financial collapse WILL happen again, however they NEVER REPEAT! And that the greater the collapse then the greater will be the subsequent leveraged to inflation asset price boom just as we continue to witness in the stock and housing markets.

The Rise of the Paper Machines / Stock-Markets / Fiat Currency

By: DeviantInvestor

Since 2011 the financial markets have been dominated by rises in paper markets and declines in commodity markets.

Group One Paper Examples:  T-Bonds, US Dollar Index, S&P 500 Index

Group Two Commodity Examples:  Crude Oil, Sugar, Wheat, Gold, Silver

Group One markets are “paper” markets in fiat debt, fiat currency, and paper equities.  They are heavily influenced by “money printing,” Quantitative Easing, High-Frequency-Trading, futures, central banks, and political agendas.

Stock Market Probable Pop-n-drop in SPX / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The SPX Premarket is up 11.00 points as I write, suggesting a 50% retracement may be in the works. However, SPX may also retest the lower trendline of its Broadening Wedge, which happens to be at the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement. That suggests a pop at the open. However, there are 5 waves (impulsive) in this decline, so the retracement should be short-lived.

Financialization Sacrifice and Awakening / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Former Federal Reserve Chairman Ben S. Bernanke has come out of the closet with a publicity campaign aimed at defending his policy and, by proxy, the entire central banking complex diaspora. No doubt he will temporarily succeed in the minds of many across the political spectrum.  But at the margins, there are always unintended consequences.
 
As Fed chair, Bernanke played his role as the straight man elegantly, but it was script nonetheless — a massive well documented childhood fiction.  From the blatant disregard for the breadth of the crisis on the eve of its unfolding, to his nearly unflinching projection of ‘gold as tradition’, the depth of misdirection and betrayal will be explored for years before the veil is lifted on the secrecy of the central banking edifice.

Gold and Silver Inflection Point / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Rambus_Chartology

Inflection Point:

An inflection point on a chart is an area where the price action can break either up or down. It’s an area of confusion that makes investors go nuts. You know a strong move is coming but you aren’t sure what direction the move will go. I believe this is where the precious metals complex is right now. One can make a clear bullish or bearish case for the direction of the PM markets showing just a few chart patterns. In this Weekend Report I want to look at the PM complex without any bias in mind just using the charts with no fundamental reasons why the PM complex has to go either up or down.

SP500: A Butcher's Stock Market (Chop Chop Chop) / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Dan_Norcini

It sure does seem as if the vast majority of our markets are stuck in sideways trading patterns, does it not? Just about the time some look as if they are going to mount an upside breakout, they fail and fall back down once again. The flip side is that some markets look as if they are going to stage a downside breakout, they reverse higher and back up they go. The result of all of this has been to slice and dice or chop and shred traders who are attempting to build any sort of POSITIONS BASED ON LONGER TERM VIEWS.

Avoid the Spread of the Stock Market "China Syndrome" / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: Stocks were sailing toward new record highs last week until they suddenly came crashing down on Friday. The shift occurred after China took steps to rein in its parabolic market by easing restrictions on short selling and raising margin requirements.

This is what happens when equity investors decide to ignore weak earnings, deteriorating economic conditions and geopolitical chaos and place all of their faith in the ability of central banks and other regulators to bail them out time after time.

Stock Market Going Nowhere Fast / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: WavePatternTraders

SPX

Last week I mentioned the idea of a pullback on the SPX; it appears the bears were in tune with that idea, although it may still see a bit more downside as some of the European markets argue for a bit of weakness, such as the DAX etc. The current idea of seeing a new all time highs is still possible and as many have got bearish again due to Fridays decline, I do wonder if traders are actually looking at the same charts as I am. Whilst Fridays decline was a steep move, the market is still firmly above 2060SPX so I tend to think the bulls still have to upper hand, although until it sees a strong decline under 2040SPX. I still would not rule out the bulls pushing this market higher and seeing 2130SPX.

UK Stock Market Ready To Reverse? / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Richard_Cox

Over the trading sessions seen last week, UK markets have posted some declines that have caused concern for many investors that are long equities.  So the next question to ask is whether or not this is a true bearish reversal of the longer term bullish trend.  If this is the case, it would be a good idea for investors to start taking profits on long positions while prices are still holding at relatively elevated levels.  But if this is not the case, the latest declines could prove to be a good opportunity to continue buying in UK equity markets or to establish new long positions for those that do not already have exposure in regional stocks.
