Why This Stock Market Rally is About to End Badly / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Michael_Pento

The deafening cacophony on Wall Street for the past six years has been since interest rates are at zero percent that there is no place else to put your money except stocks. For most, it just doesn't matter that the ratio of Total Market Cap to GDP is 125 percent, which is 15 percent points higher than in 2007 and the highest at any time outside of the tech bubble at the turn of the century. Sovereign bond yields are at record lows across the globe and the strategy for most investors is to ignore anemic economic growth rates and just continue to plow more money into the market simply because, "there's no place else to put your money."

Stock Market Primary III or IV Inflection Point Reached / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

Summer holiday traders returned this week in the sell mode. Every new high, tuesday-thursday, was sold within the first hour and a half, or less, of trading. But the market managed to turn the tide on friday. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.20%, the NDX/NAZ were +0.15%, and the DJ World index was +0.20%. On the economic front, positive and negative reports came in about even. On the uptick: ISM manufacturing/services, construction spending, factory orders, the unemployment rate, and the trade deficit improved. On the downtick: the ADP, payrolls, the WLEI, the monetary base, and weekly jobless claims rose. Next week we get a look at Consumer credit, Retail sales and Business inventories.

The Coming Stock Market Trading Range Breakout / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Clif_Droke

Although you wouldn’t know it by looking at the NASDAQ, this year has been a tough one for many investors. The relative lack of volatility, combined with the underperformance of small cap stocks, has kept many portfolios unchanged for the year to date.

To give you an idea of what 2014 has been like for some investors, checkout the following graph of the Russell 2000 Small Cap Index (RUT). Clearly, the lateral trading range action of small cap stocks, which comprise a substantial portion of many portfolios, has been a frustrating experience.

World Stock Markets Are Topping - Dow, ASX, BSE, DAX and FTSE Analysis / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Austin_Galt

In this analysis, we will examine both the small picture and big picture using the daily and monthly charts.

Dow

What a difference a week makes! In my last report I thought that the Dow would correct before embarking on one final surge higher. Instead, price made a marginal new high before heading down and threatening to break down but managing to climb back into the end of the week. When things don't play out as expected, I always head back to the charts to reanalyse. Let's see what this new analysis suggests beginning with the daily chart.

Sell Financial Stocks - and Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Fred_Sheehan

(RESERVE YOUR SEATS: On August 26, 2014, for what seems the fiftieth time, the U.S. Court of Federal Claims rejected the U.S. government's attempt to extinguish Starr International Co. v. United States. Judge Thomas Wheeler said the case brought by Hank Greenberg's AIG (specifically, Starr International Co., which owned 12.5% of the shares on September 15, 2008) will go to trial on September 29, 2014. Wheeler stated: "The complexity of the submissions and the factual disagreements strongly point to the need for a trial." According to Reuters, "a U.S. Department of Justice spokeswoman declined to comment." On the other hand, David Boies, the Attorney of Record from Boies, Schiller & Flexner, LLP, representing Starr International, did comment: "The decision speaks for itself." Former AIG Chairman Hank Greenberg has sued the U.S. government for $25 billion as compensation for the shares owned by Starr International. According to Reuters, "The trial is expected to last six weeks.")

Stock Market Epic Optimism that Can Be Reversed Only by a Huge Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: EWI

Recent weeks brought the biggest confrontation with Moscow since the Cold War, a race riot, a new low in the popularity of President Obama and grisly beheadings at the hands of religious terrorists amidst a major re-escalation of the war in Iraq.

QE3’s Ominous End Looms for Global Financial and Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

The Federal Reserve’s third quantitative-easing campaign is on track to wind down in late October.  At that point the Fed will likely stop printing new money to buy bonds, a sea-change shift with ominous implications for the stock markets.  Their entire surreal levitation during QE3 mirrored the huge growth in the Fed’s balance sheet from QE3’s bond monetizations.  When they cease, another major selloff is likely.

QE3’s impact on the global financial markets has been vast beyond belief.  The Fed launched QE3 in September 2012, just before the important United States elections.  This goosed the US stock markets in that critical final couple months ahead of the elections, right when they were on the verge of selling off dramatically.  Odds are very high that the Fed’s brazen market manipulation gave the election to Obama.

Stock Markets Climb as World Faces Crisis / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: John_Browne

On August 28th while the geographical area formerly known as Iraq descended further into chaos, President Obama announced to the world "We don't have a strategy, yet." A few days later, another brave American journalist was brutally beheaded by a slickly televised cockney-accented jihadist. Clearly things are not going well outside the bubbly confines of the S&P 500.

Stock Market Bears At 27 Year Lows... Complacency At Extremes.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

What can you say. I warned this morning that buying the gap up probably didn't make muchsense. Buying any strength in a froth-driven market probably isn't the best idea. After a large gap up to start the day, we saw the key-index charts close with either nasty black candles, or worse, red candles, especially the Nasdaq and small caps. The selling wasn't intense, but the closes were well below the gap up open suggest sustained upside will likely be tough for a while here. In normal times, these types of candle sticks would be the prelude to some very intense short-term selling, but you can't count on that here since the rate driven bull is still very much alive.

Despite Growing Risks it's Still Janet Yellen's Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: John_Browne

The current stock market is earning a deserved reputation as being coated in Teflon. Bad or disappointing news just doesn't appear to stick, and has done nothing to slow the market's upward trajectory. Bad news is good and good news is good news. But where does this all end? A minority of investors have begun to wonder whether negative geo-political risks, embodied in the steely-eyed stare of Vladimir Putin, are exerting more influence on the market than the sunny smiles of Janet Yellen. Just going by the market numbers, Yellen remains firmly in the driver's seat. Thus far this year, the S&P 500 is up more than 8% and there has been little evidence that investors fear a pull back.

"Financialization" Will Ruin America. Unless We Do This... / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: There's a reason America is floundering economically. There's a reason for the ever-widening divide between the "haves" and the "have-nots" in the United States.

Our country is no longer a free market, capitalist republic.

America has devolved into a socialist plutocracy as a result of the "financialization" of the economy.

By: Gary_Tanashian

Using monthly charts I want to update more big picture views of where we stand in the financial markets.  This is just a brief summary [edit; okay it's not so brief.  In fact it had to be ended abruptly or else it would have just kept on rambling] and not meant as in depth analysis with finite conclusions.

Stock Market Approaching An Important High? / 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 - The correction is over and what is most likely the final phase of the uptrend (before a more serious correction) is underway.

When Complexity Becomes Chaos / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Modern achievements, especially in medicine and technology (fueled by cheap energy), have made the human experience longer and easier.

Yet, at the base of it all lays the irrational man, still flinging immorality from the cages of his ongoing existential dilemma.

Despite the existence of natural governors, humans are still prone to abuse of power for the sake of power alone.

But it didn't work out that way... again.

This week, the S&P 500 closed above 2,000 for the first time. The Nasdaq hit its highest level in 14 1/2 years.

Stock Market Status Quo.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

This an abbreviated holiday edition.

Folks, to be honest, there's not much to day about this market that we haven't discussed repeatedly for weeks, if not months. There are a number of issues the market is facing that one would think would be the beginning of the end for the bulls. We have overbought conditions on the key-index charts across most of the time frames everyone uses in one way or another. We have some divergences around, and most of all, we have froth at extremely high levels that usually knock the market down in a very large way. Not just your casual 4-5% correction, but levels that can cause bear markets meaning at least a correction of 20% or more. At times, 50%. Yes folks, the froth readings are that bad.
