The REAL Reason Why the Stock Market Turned Down / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: EWI

The rout in stocks is no "jinx"

In case you've been roving Mars for the past month, you've missed quite a fiasco from the world's leading stock market:

"Since it topped out last month, the Dow has suffered eight triple digit losses� Add it all up, and the Dow has slid about 7.5% percent from its peak, the biggest retreat in more than two years. It also means the Dow has now given back all of its gains for the year -- and then some." (Daily Finance Oct. 15)

Now, according to the mainstream experts, there are 3 key causes for the market's sell-off:

Stock Market Continues Counter Trend On Cue... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

I thought that we would move higher off the 10% move lower on the S&P 500, with a retrace to around the gap at 1928, or thereabouts. There, of course, can be no exact number, but my feeling was we'd get to 1928, or so, and, thus far, we're making our way up there nicely, but not easily. It shouldn't be easy, and it's not, but, thus far, it is playing out as expected. Of course, we could go somewhat higher or lower than my target. It's just that you have the confluence of gap, moving average, and a 50% retrace, all coming together at that approximate level. When a market wants to do something, it's very hard to deny it. For instance, there was absolutely terrible news from market and economic leader International Business Machines Corporation (IBM).

Investors Quit Complaining, The Environment is Perfect Right Now / Stock-Markets / US Economy

By: DailyWealth

Everyone is worried the U.S. economy is weak... and that stocks therefore have to fall. Everyone sees the recent volatility in the markets as proof of this.

Stocks Bear Market Indicator Is Off the Mark / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: nvestors are taught that bear markets can't occur unless the Treasury yield curve inverts – that is, unless short-term interest rates are higher than long-term interest rates.

And that can only happen if the Federal Reserve raises the Federal Funds rate, which is the short-term rate that the Fed controls.

But that measure may be off the mark this time, and here's why…

Stock Market Ideal Turning Point is at Hand / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX appears to be letting the clock run out on the rally today. The 200-day Moving Average is the likely target, but there are no assurances that it will get there. I drew the dotted line across the supports and resistance points at 1906.36 to show the natural stopping place for the right shoulder.

Today seems like a snoozer, but the reversal may be a real wake up call. Those who stepped aside from the market may wish to go short again before the close.

Stock Market Dow Theory Update / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

From my seat and in light of the price action this past week, I truly find the lack of understanding surrounding Dow Theory amusing. I also find the content from most any article on this subject to be inaccurate and/or typically misleading. Such erroneous articles result from the misunderstandings and/or the lack of quality study of Dow Theory, which in turn makes such articles dangerous to those who read them, as well as being a discredit to Dow Theory. In my experience, virtually 99.9% of all articles written on the subject of Dow Theory are wrong. I think this is because of the scarcity of the original writings by our Dow Theory Founding Fathers and again, the lack of quality research.

Stock Market Intermediate B Wave has Started / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Long-term trend - In 1932 and 1974, the 40-yr cycle was responsible for protracted market weakness. The current phase is due this year but where is the weakness? Has man (Federal Reserve) finally achieved dominance over universal rhythms or has it simply delayed the inevitable?

Intermediate trend - Intermediate correction (primary wave IV) underway.

Analysis of the short-term trend is done on a daily basis with the help of hourly charts. It is an important adjunct to the analysis of daily and weekly charts which discusses the course of longer market trends.

Understanding a Confusing Stock Market…Inside and Out / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: The long overdue stock market correction continued this week as a European growth scare was compounded by fears about the potential spread of Ebola to send the markets lower.

A strong rally on Friday allowed the major stock market indices to stabilize for the moment and show relatively minor damage on the week, but many hedge funds suffered larger losses after being forced (or forcing themselves) into realizing losses as the markets reached a selling climax on Wednesday, October 15.

Stock Market Primary IV Wave Counter Trend Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

What a week! After the SPX dropped 3.1% last week ending at 1906, it started off quiet enough with a push to 1912 by around noon Monday. Then the bottom fell out, as the market dropped, gyrated on Tuesday, then dropped to 1821 by early afternoon Wednesday. After that it staged one heck of a come back rally, hitting SPX 1898 on Friday then ending the week at 1887. For the week the SPX/DOW were -1.0%, the NDX/NAZ were -0.9%, and the DJ World index dropped 0.8%. Economic reports for the week were biased 8:6 to the positive. On the uptick: business inventories, industrial production, housing starts, building permits, consumer sentiment, the monetary base, plus the budget surplus and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: retail sales, the PPI, the NY/Philly FED, the NAHB and the WLEI. Next week is highlighted with the CPI, Existing/New home sales, and Leading indicators.

Stock Market Gap Up Off Short-Term Bottom... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

The stock market never has never been easy. The emotion machine keeps chugging along making sure all of you have a difficult time understanding it. It doesn't want you to ever think it's easy, and it wants to make sure you struggle. Just about everyone does. When you look at the recent volatility it's easy to understand. Tremendous day-to-day moves off the recent top as the VIX exploded. The bulls and bears alike are more used to small grinding moves for several months, with the direction mostly higher. Now things have swung around, and the market is playing a different tune. Slow dance nights are over. The doji is playing rock music these days, and most folks just can't dance well to that music. Most folks simply get used to the new pattern in place and never adapt to what's taking place in the moment.

Stock Market SPX New Head & Shoulders Formation / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The bounce turned into a double zigzag correction which had a higher target than an a-b-c would accommodate. There is a new Head & Shoulders formation with the top of the right shoulder matching the length of the left shoulder at 1903.58, just under the 200-day Moving Average at 1906.07. It may not make either target.

Intermediate Wave (1) may turn out to be either a Leading Diagonal with five Minor A-B-C waves, or an (A)-(B)-(C) wave in a larger degree Wave [1]. The pattern will work itself out, as it did in the decline in gold.

How to Invest in a Difficult Market / Stock-Markets / Investing 2014

By: Casey_Research

Many experts hold dim views of the current state of the US economy—but what’s a prudent investor to do to make a profit? Find out what the blue-ribbon faculty of economists and investment pros at the recently concluded Casey Research Fall Summit thought.

Lacy Hunt, senior executive VP of Hoisington Investment Management Company and former chief economist at the Dallas Fed, says the main reason that the global economy continues to falter is that all countries borrow too much and save too little.

How to Trade the Ebola Stock Market Sell-Off / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: I believe Ebola may be the most serious threat to humanity since the bubonic plague of the Middle Ages. Already it has spread to a dozen countries, including the U.S., and more than 4,000 people are dead. According to Dr. Bruce Aylward of the World Health Organization (WHO), mortality rates are rising and now sit at 70%.

This outbreak is more grim proof that the global trend of war, terrorism, and ugliness is indeed a growth industry.

Stock Market Pullback Underway, Euro downside, Commodities / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Puru_Saxena

BIG PICTURE – The first round of QE began in March 2009 and after 5½ years, the Federal Reserve’s bond buying program is coming to an end.  Since the QE program boosted confidence, combated deflationary forces and sparked an epic bull market on Wall Street; it is hardly surprising that its end has brought about some turbulence in the stock market.

There can be no denying the fact that over the past few years, the QE program significantly assisted the stock market by tackling the deflationary forces within the economy.  You will recall that when QE1 and QE2 were ending, the stock market abruptly reversed course and the major indices started to face intense selling pressure. Thereafter, when the Federal Reserve unleashed its next bout of bond purchases, buyers returned in earnest and piled into common stocks.

The 10th Man: What a Stock Market Correction Feels Like / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: John_Mauldin

Back in the summer of 2007, when I was working for Lehman Brothers, I had a vacation to the Bahamas planned. This was unusual for me. Up until that point, in six years of working for Lehman, I had taken about five vacation days—total. But my wife and I were going to a semi-primitive resort on Cat Island, the most desolate island in the Bahamas. Interesting place for a vacation. Suffice to say that it’s plenty hot in the Bahamas in August.

Rising Market Volatility / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX is down over 1% in the Premarket. Today is day 69 in the current Master Cycle. The nearest Pivot is 68.8, so it may have made the Pivot at yesterday’s close. That is why I was uncertain on how the Pivot would work.

There may be some attempt to rally SPX prior to the open, but there is no liquidity in the hedge funds’ favorite market, the E-mini.
