Is the Stock Market Being Manipulated By the Fed and its Banks? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: LewRockwell

The U.S. economy has continued to falter since the housing bubble burst. Virtually every part of the economy has worsened, and continues to do so. This is also true on a global scale. Whether discussing unemployment, housing, inflation, GDP, retail sales, etc., the picture is clear, we are still in a depression. Even though the economic picture is bleak, the stock markets have continued to go up in value during this period. Why is this happening?

After the market collapse of 2008 and 2009, where losses were generally around 55%, the markets have gone up substantially. During that same period were QE1 and QE2. This is no coincidence. Bernanke took full credit for the rise in the stock markets, and for good reason.

Stocks Bear Market Rally or New Bull Advance? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Donald_W_Dony

Broader global markets have rallied substantially since the start of the new cycle. The NYSE Composite has advanced 14% from October 4th (Chart 1), the EURO 100 has climbed over 11% and many Asian indexes have jumped 12%-17%. But is this the start of a new bull market or just a rebound rally within a longer bear trend?

Technical Analysis of Stocks, Currencies, Bonds and Gold / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article-- When I last discussed the VIX two weeks ago, I had mentioned that the VIX was getting quite a bit of attention in the popular media. I should have suspected that it was the "kiss of death" for the continuation of the rally at that time. Although the formation appeared to be ready for an upside breakout, it was due for a Master Cycle low, first. It now appears that the low may be in, or nearly so. The VIX cycle turn date occurred on Saturday, so I am allowing one more trading day for the turn to happen.

Stock Market Ready for a Pause? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep and prolonged decline (which appears to have already started) into 2014.

SPX: Intermediate trend - A very strong uptrend typical of bear market rallies has begun. However, the existing pattern suggests that a correction is due.

How Gold and Stocks are About to Repeat the 2010 Bottom / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn May of 2010, immediately following the flash crash many investors started to become bearish (nervous) regarding their position in gold and equities. Once the general public became aware that the stock market could fall 10% in a matter of minutes, investors became very cautious. Suddenly protecting their capital and current positions was at the forefront of their investment process.

Stock Market S&P 500 Index Getting Close to a Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past few months have been very difficult to navigate for retail investors and institutional money managers. The huge week to week price swings and increased volatility have made the current market conditions exceptionally difficult to maneuver. Day traders are about the only group of market participants that outperform during periods such as we have seen since the beginning of August.

Stock Market at The Point of No Return / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: WavePatternTraders

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleImpressive is a understated word, but I don't think many would have expected in just 9 days to see a rally of near 150 points in the SPX in such a short space of time.

The bears simply never stood a chance as the market took "risk on" to a new level. In arguably a move that will likely go down in history as one of the quickest 9 days rallies in history, I have not checked on the stats, but in recent times for a 9 day move, that's the quickest move I can recall.

Stocks Bear Market Primary B Wave Rally Continues / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tony_Caldaro

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother impressive week for the bulls: SPX/DOW +5.45%. We have seen quite a few of these since the bear market began, mixed in with some just as impressive downweeks: w/e July 01st S/D +5.5%, w/e August 26th S/D +4.5%, w/e September 16th S/D +5.05%. Economic reports for the week were light but still trending lower. On the uptick: retail sales, business inventories and the M1- multiplier. On the downtick: the trade/budget deficits, consumer sentiment, the monetary base, the WLEI, and jobless claims rose. Remaining unchanged were import/export prices. That’s 3 up and 6 down if you’re counting. Equity markets worldwide had impressive gains, especially the NDX/NAZ in the US +7.65%. Asian markets gained 3.1%, European markets were +3.2%, the Commodity equity group rose 7.6%, and the DJ World index gained 5.4%. Next week’s economic reports will be highlighted by industrial production, the CPI/PPI, housing and the FED’s beige book.

Silver’s Signals Lean Bearish For Stocks and Commodities / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBefore we review current bull/bear signals from silver, Bloomberg had an on the money comment relative to the efforts in Europe:

“Recapitalizing the banks is not the solution,” said Justin Bisseker, who helps manage 205 billion pounds as a European bank analyst in London for Schroders, Britain’s largest independent money manager. “Sovereign risk is the principal concern. Once investors’ confidence in sovereigns returns, then confidence in the banks will follow.&rM.

Investors Great Opportunities (from Great Mistakes) Season / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“… I think this next phase of the crisis — a crisis that started with the credit crunch — has been exacerbated by governments and central banks creating even more debt in the global economy.

 

… The credit crunch was the result of too much leverage (debt) in the global economy. So the private sector starts to deleverage and instead of letting the market take its natural course, authorities add more debt to the global economy. Now the imbalances are worse than before the credit crunch.

 

I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried.

 

Thus, I believe this story ends badly again; deleveraging globally is the only way to solve the problem if countries wish to see real growth ever again.

 

It won’t be pretty for most asset classes…”

 

The Bank of England falls off the wagon. The pound could be sore in the morning!

A Rising Stock Market Won't Stop the "Economic Rot" Beneath / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSuppose you see a lovely house -- one with great curb appeal. It has new paint and manicured shrubbery out front.

But also suppose that you look more closely. You press your thumb on the window sill and the wood frame crumbles in. Come to find out, the wood is rotten in too many places to count. The deck joists and supports are fractured. Even the terrain underneath the deck looks unstable. And the closer you look the worse the problems are.

A Hair Trigger Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: John_Browne

By the first week of October, after having dropped more than 18 percent from its highs achieved in May 2011, U.S. stocks were desperate to latch on to any good news. In this context, the apparent agreement between the major European players to kick their debt can down the road was viewed as an "all clear" for shell shocked investors.

Will US Shoppers Rescue Europe's Economy? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Regent_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis morning there is a muted reaction to the downgrade of Spanish debt by ratings agency S&P. It seems that the agency has done little more than confirm what markets have been saying for weeks. Today we have the start of the G20 meeting which runs into the weekend. The talks will be centred around Europe with terms of the rescue plan still being finalized amid news that France and Germany are disagreeing on Lisbon treaty reforms.Markets are in a holding pattern right now, but this could be broken by some strong data from the US today.

Big Banks Are About to Get Blasted by the Volcker Rule / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDavid Zeiler writes: When the Volcker Rule regulations go into effect next year, its restrictions could slam the revenue of the fixed income trading operations of several major U.S. banks by as much as 25%.

The Volker Rule is one of the elements required by the Dodd-Frank financial oversight law, which was written to rein in the sort of excessive Wall Street risk-taking that led to the financial crisis of 2008.
