China, Dollar, Japan, Europe Burning Questions for 2015 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: John_Mauldin

Louis Gave is one of my favorite investment and economic thinkers, besides being a good friend and an all-around fun guy. When he and his father Charles and the well-known European journalist Anatole Kaletsky decided to form Gavekal some 15 years ago, Louis moved to Hong Kong, as they felt that Asia and especially China would be a part of the world they would have to understand. Since then Gavekal has expanded its research offices all over the world. The Gavekal team’s various research arms produce an astounding amount of work on an incredibly wide range of topics, but somehow Louis always seems to be on top of all of it.

Longtime readers know that I often republish a piece by someone in their firm (typically Charles or Louis). I have to be somewhat judicious, as their research is actually quite expensive, but they kindly give me permission to share it from time to time.

U.S. Economy is in a Sweet Spot! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Puru_Saxena

BIG PICTURE - The world's prominent central banks are pursuing an accommodative monetary policy and this bodes well for the stock market. Remember, when it comes to investing, monetary policy trumps everything else and the risk free rate of return determines the value of every asset. When interest rates are low and credit is cheap and plentiful, asset prices tend to inflate. Conversely, when interest rates are high and credit is tight, asset prices tend to deflate.

Insane Santa Claus Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Joseph_Russo

Just a few short days ago, it appeared that bearish forces were destined to deny Wall Street its customary "Santa Claus Rally." Enter the Yellen Fed and the FOMC meeting on Wednesday, and suddenly, like magic, Santa and his proverbial rally appears to have found its way back on course to treat Wall Street with a healthy dose of Christmas Cheer.

How in the name of Jesus are long-term investors (let alone short-term traders) supposed to deal with this type of rollercoaster market from hell?

Show Me The Money (Flow)! Tracking Money-Flow Through Value Shifts In Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: George_R_Harrison

We’ve all heard of the old magicians trick of distracting with one hand while the other is where the real set-up is taking place.

It seems we’re up against the same process at work in the markets we’re experiencing today.

There’s a fundamental and major shift taking place. Everyone feels the ‘vibe’ of it, but, where’s the proof (instead of the speculation) to bear out the truth of it?

It’s not to be found from conventional sources, that much is clear.

Stock Market Volatility Soaring....Whipsaw....Down Bias For Now..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

Volatility is soaring and traders are suffering. Too difficult to play with massive whipsaw moves intraday just about everywhere, but with the trend still clearly lower for now. When the VIX is in the low teens it's easy on the soul, but when it rockets in to the lower 20-range, things can get very intense. You can barely keep up with the score. You blink and the S&P 500 moves five points. You blink again and it's another five, and so on. The range for the day across the board on all the key-index charts can give you motion sickness. Huge drifting. This is when markets become too difficult to put the finger on the buy or sell button. It becomes luck trades and that's not what you want to be doing. It can work, but Russian roulette is better used somewhere else.

Dow Mini Stock Market Megaphone Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Austin_Galt

The Dow made marginal all time highs in early December before turning back down. Many people are now jumping at shadows with every correction that takes place. This is understandable given the Dow’s precarious position but it is my opinion that the ultimate top is still yet to be seen.

Let’s examine the situation using the daily and weekly charts.

How to Profit From Russia's Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Russia

By: Money_Morning

The collapse in oil prices has exposed some vulnerable economies. All of them are dependent upon crude export sales to maintain even the appearance of a national budget.

As you might expect, every member of OPEC falls into this group, although Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, and the United Arab Emirates have sufficient reserves that will allow them to carry sizable budget deficits for some time.

Stock Market Cycles / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Ed_Carlson

7 Year Cycle Highs

For several decades the Dow has exhibited a cycle of seven years between highs. It has been as short as six years and, on one occasion, it stretched closer to eight years. All cycle highs matched the highs of Lindsay's basic cycles. The previous cycle high was in Oct 2007 and which makes a cycle high due now. The high should be point H of Lindsay's long cycle. Past experience implies it could come as late as Oct 2015 but a six-year cycle low makes that very unlikely.

Russia Crisis - If You Put Your Money in the Bank Will You Get it Back? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Bloomberg

Howard Marks, co-chairman of Oaktree Capital Management, told Bloomberg Television's Stephanie Ruhle and Matt Miller today that loose rule of law is a major concern for investors who are considering buying assets in Russia. Marks said: "In order to make investments, you have to believe that you will benefit from the rule of law...The underlying question about Russia is whether you will. The question is, if you put your money in the bank will you get it back in the end?"

Will the European Union Reindex Stock Markets to 100 points? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Wim_Grommen

The introduction of the euro brought the citizens of Europe many advantages, including  uniformity. It would be nice if that uniformity also applied to the comparison of the various stock exchanges. An index point is not a fixed unit in time and does not have any historical significance, so the European citizen may therefore not attach any significance for the future. Comparing index points to their history and also comparing the various stock exchanges makes no sense. The time is ripe to reindex European stock exchanges to 100 points.

Wall Street’s Big Boys Bulldoze Through the Spending Bill They Want / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

Shah Gilani writes: We’ve got a spending bill, folks!

The government of the United States will remain open for business thanks to the usual suspects in Congress being open to being bought.

Sometimes it only takes a few phone calls from a deep-pocketed giant bank CEO to remind legislators who butters their bread.

Investment Advisor - “Why I Quit” / Stock-Markets / Investing

By: Andy_Sutton

As many of you probably already know, I have decided that it is no longer in the best interests of clients to provide ‘advisory’ services regarding securities specifically, and paper investments in general. This decision follows a rather similar move made by former broker Ann Barnhart and while our reasons differ slightly, the bottom line is the same: I feel that it is no longer possible to provide even a reasonable assurance to my clients that I can provide anything in the way of protection from market volatility, bail-ins, cleanouts like 2008, and so forth in an advisor capacity. So, to put it bluntly…I quit. But I’m not done if that makes any sense. Please bear with me and keep reading.

Stock Market VIX Volatile Volatility, you have to see this to believe it! / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

My conjecture may be right. Someone very big appears to be caught on the wrong side of this trade. I have been watching this nonsense for the past two hours. This may not end well for the poor guy(s) that cannot get out.

Earlier today ZeroHedge revealed a low liquidity alert in the SPX futures. It may have also extended to the VIX.

Stock Market Probable Pop-n-Crash Today / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Crude oil is in the news this morning as Crude Oil futures bounced 2.5 points in the overnight session. That was only Wave (a) of [iv]. It is pulling back and Wave (c) of [iv] may take Crude as high as 63.16. This calculation assumes that Wave [iv] is the same length as Wave [ii].

Based on that calculation and the Fibonacci Relationship between the declining waves, it anticipates a probable decline to 62.00. This is all conjecture at this point. We may be able to get a better handle on this as Wave [iv] completes later today, a Trading Cycle Piovt day.

Stock Market Euphoria: The Mother of All Ponzi Schemes / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Stephen_Lendman

The bubble of all bubbles. A house of cards waiting to collapse, says Paul Craig Roberts. 

A great unraveling looms. America’s economy based on market manipulation. Rigging things one way.

Smoke and mirrors deception. Money printing madness. Privatizing profits. Socializing losses. Upside down reality.

Shifting wealth in unprecedented amounts. More than what’s comprehensible. To monied interests. From ordinary folks.

The Rushing Stocks Bear Market and How to Prepare / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: Oil prices plunged to their lowest prices in five years last week after the International Energy Agency (IEA) downgraded its forecast for global oil demand for the fifth time in six months.

The IEA report told markets that global growth will remain weak in 2015, triggering an across-the-board sell-off in stocks and junk bonds on Friday that left the major indices with some of their worst percentage losses in three years.
