Fed Rigs Markets, Not the Flash Boys / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Michael_Pento

There’s been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of high-tech front running. However, the real problem with the stock market—and the economy as a whole—isn’t the fact that HFT skims pennies off transactions from institutional traders; but rather that the Fed has rigged interest rates and asset prices to the extent that investors can no longer distinguish reality from fiction.

Flash Crash, Rigged Markets - What’s the Frequency Zenith? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: John_Mauldin

By Grant Williams

WARNING: This week’s Things That Make You Go Hmmm... is going to run a little longer than usual, I’m afraid, so if you have some time to kill, strap yourself in for the ride.

Yes. I have read it.

For the last couple of weeks those have been the five words I have used the most — by a country mile.

The second most-used five-word combination during that time has been “I know, what a tool.”

Stock Market Gap Up Failure But Positive Divergences In Place...Will It Matter? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

It should. Those short-term charts have some pretty compressed down oscillators that normally give a bounce, especially when they have a positive divergence in place. We have that here and, while we can't rule out a complete crater down, I don't think the market is quite ready for the next leg lower. Sure, in time, but not right here although you don't let your guard down and you avoid froth stocks like you would the plague. No reason to be involved with those types of stocks, even if we get the bounce. While this divergence gives hope for a short-term bounce, the medium term looks poor for the bulls at this moment in time. Things can always change, but the charts are suggesting lower in time. But again, I don't think so right away. We'll have the answer to that soon enough.

Stock Market - Is Something Nasty About to Happen? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

This morning’s rally fell short of its targets. This afternoon the SPX almost fell out of bed, but rallied in nine waves (impulsive) into the final hour to close beneath this morning’s highs. Folks, this has the look of a running correction, where sub-Minute Wave (c) is the shortest wave in the correction. If so, we may see the bottom fall out of the market overnight.

Greece, Turkey, We're Shuffling The Cards on Our Europe Investing Play / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Frank_Holmes

Did you know that over the last year the Greek stock market is up roughly 45 percent? The country that many believed would never recover from a six-year recession is now making astounding strides, recently being added to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index at the end of 2013.

As I've witnessed new strength from this "comeback country," along with a rise in foreign investment into emerging markets as a whole, our investment team is currently strategizing to adapt our game to new European plays. Here are the game changers we see:

Is The Stock Market Plunge Over Yet? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion short positions are still favored (stop-loss at 1,850, short-term profit target at around 1,800, S&P 500 index), and they have been already profitable.

Our intraday outlook is now neutral, as the market may consolidate after selling off recently, and our short-term outlook remains bearish, following breakdown below March-April consolidation:

Gold, Crude Oil and SP500 Elliott Wave Patterns / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Gregor_Horvat

S&P500 has turned nicely to the downside last week from 1865/1870 resistance area where wave 2/B completed a corrective rally. Market already reached a new swing low but based on downside fib. projections and strong bearish momentum price could be moving down in wave 3 towards 1765 zone. Only rally above the upper resistance line of a current downward channel would put market back in bullish mode.

Stock Market Nearing Rally in a Downtrend / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are in their down phases, and if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over), there will be another steep decline into late 2014. However, the Fed policy of keeping interest rates low has severely curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - Failed to overcome resistance at the high. Starting intermediate decline.

Are We Heading For Another 1987-Style Stock Market Crash? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Graham_Summers

The big story developing in the US markets regards the sudden crackdown by regulators, most notably the SEC and Justice Department, on High Frequency Trading or HFT.

For well over five years now, certain trading firms have been using high-speed computers to front-run orders from other investors. Read full article... Read full article...

Stock Market Potential Diagonal Triangle Pattern Forming / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

A volatile and somewhat disappointing week for the bulls. The week started off with a gap down on Monday, followed by a tradable low at SPX 1837 on Tuesday. Then after a rally to SPX 1873 at Thursday’s open, the market sold off rapidly into Friday. For the week the SPX/DOW were -2.50%, the NDX/NAZ were -2.85%, and the DJ World index was -2.0%. Economic reports for the week, oddly enough, were all to the upside. On the uptick: consumer credit, wholesale inventories, export/import prices, the PPI, consumer sentiment, the WLEI, the M1-multiplier, plus the budget deficit and weekly jobless claims both improved. Next week we get reports on the FED’s beige book, Industrial production, the NY/Philly FED and Housing.

Stock Market Bears Taking Over....Deeply Oversold Short Term... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

It's the same old story folks. The bears bring the market indexes down to critical support zones. All they need is a gap down. Just one nasty gap down to put the final nail in the coffin. You can forget about that. Instead of gap downs we get gap ups. The bulls, where they have to, gap it up and send the bears back into hibernation. I know it makes absolutely no sense with how nasty those daily, weekly, and monthly charts look, but you can't fight the Fed, who, once again, reassured the market with the Fed minutes report that all is well. Ms. Yellen said she will be there to make sure the bull market continues with low rates. Once the Fed minutes came out, a good day for the bulls turned into a great day for them as the market doubled its gains into the close.

Manipulated Stocks Markets And The Empty Bag / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Well, stocks are down substantially over the past few days, with internet and biotech taking big hits, and we see people like Marc Faber and Dennis Gartman urging people to get out of stocks. Something’s definitely going on. Time for a bunch of charts. And let’s start with a few of the comparison ones that everybody loves to hate, where you overlay when time period on another, and suggest similarities between both periods. This first one was used by Tyler Durden as an illustration for Marc Faber’s latest doom message. By the way, Faber says the markets are figuring out that the Fed is clueless, and I’m not so sure about that, I think it’s more likely that the Fed is not trying to do what it says it is, and that what it does try it does very well. And if that includes a stock market bust, it won’t hesitate. But so, here’s 1987 and 2014:

Stock Market - It’s Not Time to Panic… It’s Time to Buy / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: Over the last couple of weeks, I’ve heard some pundits on TV refer to the current tech market as a “crash” in the making.

Don’t believe them.

Seems like whenever some big tech leaders get clipped, the “pundits” come out of the woodwork with all sorts of dire predictions.

Doctor Doom on the Fiat Money Empire Coming Financial Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Andrew_McKillop

Save The Threatened Empire

Almost openly now, the long-running attempt to kick the price of gold down, and keep it down to Save the Money and stoke further frenzied and unreal price growth of equities has overreached. The fiat money empire is more threatened, today, than for decades and the train has hit the buffers. Speaking on CNBC this week, the veteran market expert Marc Faber – often ridiculed by business media as a Doctor Doom who always exaggerates – was given more respect than he normally gets. There were no you-said-it-before jibes when he said a 1987-style “pure financial” market crash is coming. Leading the way, he said, the insanely-overpriced Internet and Biotech stocks will be the first to go. Apart from what he called “cloud cuckoo” stock and asset prices, the basic upstream trigger are the antics of the US Fed, which like other central banks has upped the ante to the point where, Faber said, anybody can see the Fed is a “clueless organization”. Global monetary overreach went viral years ago.

Stock Market Selloff Resumes / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

The pre-market release of an unexpectedly good jobless claims report was ignored by today’s market. The three-day selloff in the S&P 500 that began last Thursday resumed after a two-day reprieve. The index fell steadily through the day with a failed attempt to reverse directions in the early afternoon and again in the closing hour. The -2.09% final tally was fractionally off the -2.21% intraday low shortly after 3 PM. This was the second worst decline of the year — the worst being the -2.28% of February 3rd. Once again the Tech Sector posted the biggest declines, with the Nasdaq Composite down 3.10%, its biggest drop since November 2011.
