Stock Market Beta Be Gone.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

There are many different ways for the big money to get rid of overbought sentiment. Take the market down one sector at a time, or just attack all the high beta stocks from all over the market place and knock them down at the same time. Priceline.com (PCLN), Apple Inc. (AAPL), and Amazon.com Inc. (AMZN) just to name a few. The list is very, very large, indeed, and that's what we saw today. The Dow stocks were holding up very well as the market participants ran to safety, with those high dividend lower beta stocks. Sometimes you can run and hide and sometimes you can't. In a bull market, if you're lucky enough to be positioned in the right place, you can get away with the selling. If you're in the wrong place, however, it's lights out. If you were in beta today, it was a lights-out day, and not a fun day at all.

Stock Market Lull Before the Storm? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Mike_Paulenoff

From a big picture perspective, let's notice that both the upper and lower Bollinger Band lines are negatively sloped now, as is the 20-day moving average. This suggests strongly that the e-mini S&P 500 is in the grasp of a period of incomplete negative price action (a corrective period) that should retest and break below the April 10 low at 1352.50, on the way to a test of more important medium term support at 1338-1334.

More Impetus For Summer Stock Market Correction! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Sy_Harding

Another week of economic reports adds to the likelihood of a summer correction in the stock market again this year, and even to the possibility that it has already begun.

After four or five months of surprisingly strong economic reports that fueled the rally off the October low, it looks like the U.S. economic recovery has reached another slippery slope that has it sliding backward again.

Stock Markets have Entered a Very Dangerous Environment / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe markets have entered a very dangerous environment in which even the usual market props (Fed Presidents calling for more easing) are being overridden by market concerns for Europe.

To whit, last week, not one, but two Fed Presidents (Yellen and Dudley), called for more easing/ QE. On the very same day (April 11), the ECB issued a similar statement regarding the potential for more easing.

Stock Market Short-term Decline in Progress, Will Gold Follow or Not? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Andre_Gratian

Diamond Rated - 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 (after this bull market is over) there will be another steep and prolonged decline into late 2014. It is probable, however, that the steep correction of 2007-2009 will have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 120-yr cycle.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The intermediate uptrend is still intact, but a short-term top may already have started to take shape.

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.

The Markets Are About to Tell You Something / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Most people seem to have a hard time understanding why the markets do what they do.

The only reason I don't is that I've been trading professionally for 30 years.

Not that I "got it" when I started out. I didn't. I had to learn. And I learned much of what I know the hard way. I made a lot of mistakes. I studied my mistakes, I still do, just as much as I study what moves markets and what I get right.

Saving Capitalism From the Capitalists: Are the Trading Desks Destroying the Futures Markets? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Jesse

Dan Norcini is my friend, one of the more savvy people I know in the markets. He has made his living as an off-exchange trader for many years. The concerns he has about the viability of the markets is genuine, and of great importance.

People forget the reasons why some markets exist, what their function in support of the real economy is fundamentally all about.

Global Stock Markets Down Trend Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Tony_Caldaro

Traders followed through with the last friday’s abbreviated holiday selloff, as the market gapped down 13 points from last thursday’s close on monday. Near the close on tuesday the market was down 42 points on the week. But a mid-week rally helped. For the week the SPX/DOW were -1.8%, and the NDX/NAZ were -2.3%. This was the largest weekly decline since mid-December. Asian markets dipped 0.2%, but European markets dropped 3.5%. On the economic front, reports ended the week balanced. On the uptick: wholesale inventories, export/import prices, the WLEI, and the trade deficit improved. On the downtick: the CPI/PPI, consumer sentiment, and both the budget deficit and weekly jobless claims rose. Next week we get a look at retail sales, housing, industrial production and the leading indicators.

NASDAQ Seeks To Pay Market Makers In Exchange For Improved ETF Trade & Quote Performance / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: ETF_Daily_News

Jackie Noblett, writing for Ignites.com, spotted a recent SEC filing by Nasdaq that proposes a “Market Quality Program” (MQP) where, “an ETF sponsor would pay an annual fee of $50,000 to $100,000 per ETF to Nasdaq. The fee, which would be in addition to the traditional listing fees, would be passed on to market makers in the form of a rebate in exchange for improving trade and quote performance. Any fees not paid out to market makers would go back to the ETF sponsor.”

Minefields That Can Blow-Up Global Stock Markets in 2012 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Gary_Dorsch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGerald Loeb was most of the most respected analysts on Wall Street, during the Great Depression years and through the following decades. He wrote an epic book, titled "The Battle for Investment Survival," last published in 1965. Many of his pearls of wisdom, concerning the financial markets and rules of investing, have withstood the test of time. Yet one has to wonder though, if Loeb's long held truths about the markets would stand up to the erratic behavior of today's world of high frequency trading (HFT). There is also the heavy hand of the world's top central banks that are actively manipulating and distorting market values, and in turn, upbraiding many of the traditional rules of the game of investing.

What Institutional Investors Are Doing May Surprise You ... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Marty_Chenard

When you look at an old fashion pendulum clock you know that it swings from one extreme to the next. Each time it reaches an extreme it moves back down to normality (the bottom center of the swing) and then overshoots it until the next extreme.

The pendulum extremes are like being above or below the upper and lower Bollinger Band levels. The Center line in middle of a Bollinger Band is like the normality level over time.

Stock Market Pause For Now But We'll Go Lower.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

Today we got a break in the action to the down side as the market went up for most of the day near, or above, triple digits on the Dow. We got extremely oversold on the short-term 60-minute charts, and were due for a bounce. RSI's got into the 20's, thus, today's bounce was nothing to be surprised about. The real question is was today's move up the start of something bigger for the short-term. I think the answer is clearly no.
