A Critical Key to EndGame Investing / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: DeepCaster_LLC

“FRANKFURT, Nov 7 (Reuters) - The European Central Bank cut interest rates to a record low on Thursday and said it could take them lower still to prevent the euro zone's recovery from stalling as inflation tumbles.

“The move took financial markets by surprise - the euro fell sharply in response while European shares rose.

“Underlining its support for the euro zone economy, the ECB also said it would prime banks with as much liquidity as required until mid-2015….

Stock Market Damage Report / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

The big boys are doing damage control after the payroll numbers (entirely fictitious, of course). The bounce is happening faster than I can write about it. This is the third revision of my letter that started at 10:00 am.

The 50% retracement level is 1760.37, just beneath Short-term resistance. It appears that that resistance has stopped the retracement rally. This activity is merely to “run the stops” on any recent shorts who now show a loss. The best course of action is not to put stops on short positions. In fact, this is a good place to put in the final short positions.

Stock Market Warning: Margin Debt Hits Record-High $401 Billion / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: I had an interesting conversation the other day with a friend of mine who asked a very compelling question: with margin debt in the equities market hitting a new all-time high—$401 billion on the NYSE in September—is this a sign of a market top?

To find out what this really means, we have to dig a little deeper into how this can affect the equities market.

Positive Trends Continue to Drive the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Donald_W_Dony

The S&P 500 has enjoyed one of the best prolonged upward trends of any global stock index over the past 55 months. And that long term trend shows no signs of slowing down.

On a 5-year perspective, the U.S. index is continuing to trade above its primary trend line. Only a decline below this line would suggest the bull market is finished (Chart 1).

Strong U.S. GDP Growth, But the Stock Market Tanks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: Before the opening bell we learned that Q3 GDP came in at 2.8%, the its highest compounded annual rate of change in six quarters. The markets weren’t impressed. The S&P 500 opened higher, hitting its 0.23% intraday high in the first fifteen minutes of trading. The index then sold off in in a pair of waves to close the day with a loss of 1.32%, the biggest decline since late August. Bloomberg speculated that the unexpected expansion in GDP could prompt the Fed to start tapering — the old “good news is bad news” meme. Was today a warm-up for tomorrow’s employment report?

Can The Fed Prevent A Stock Market Crash In 2014? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Clif_Droke

Two questions that I'm commonly asked are: "Do you still expect the market to correct next year, even with all this liquidity?" And, "Can the Fed mute the effects of the cycles bottoming in October 2014?"

The first question can only be answered provisionally. If the stock market melts up heading into 2014, the odds of a crash will increase dramatically at some point before the Kress cycle bottoms toward the end of the year. The market has certainly shown signs that investor optimism is increasing on Wall Street, even if small retail traders haven't quite yet joined in on the exuberance.

Extraordinarily Dangerous Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Brian_Bloom

The Federal Reserve’s Quantitative Easing has given rise to an all time low in the money multiplier which, in turn, has a higher probability of rising than falling. Notwithstanding the recent explosion of personal debt, Chart #5 above shows an emerging propensity of the US public to want to save a higher percentage of their income and/or pay down debts.  Therefore, the most likely driver of a rising ratio will be a rise in savings relative to money stock which, in turn, will place a downward pressure on corporate earnings.  It follows that continuation of QE by the Fed will do nothing other than push the money multiplier ratio lower. Therefore QE is becoming impotent as a strategy for driving the US economy. By extension, if the savings rate continues along its early rising trend, this will likely be accompanied by recessionary conditions which, in turn, will place a downward pressure on Price:Earnings ratios.

ECB's Tough Balancing Act, Bubbles vs Deflation / Stock-Markets / Euro-Zone

By: Gary_Dorsch

Today, a small group of central bank chiefs can meet in private and wield unprecedented power over global markets, economies, and wealth distribution. They are held accountable to the ruling politicians that in most cases have no respect for the principle of sound money. Instead, in Europe, the UK, Japan, the US, and elsewhere, central bankers have become intricately linked to monetizing government debts, and financing the expansion of the welfare state. As such, disciplined and independent central banking, a cornerstone to any hope for sound money and credit, has been relegated to the dustbin of history.

Stock Market Bulls Pull Back on Early Losses / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Monday’s nascent gain was challenged by early morning losses. However, bulls were able to regain the majority of such losses by the close of trade.

The Nasdaq and Nasdaq 100 had the best of the day’s action, going as far to post a modest gain. The Nasdaq 100 has a relative lead over the Russell 2000, and is attempting to regain relative strength against the S&P. If there is an index to gain tomorrow, one of these is it.

Stock Market Rally Goes on Hold / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: After a two-day advance, the S&P 500 took a small step back today. The index opened lower and sold off to its -0.69% intraday low just as the 10AM ISM Non-Manufacturing (aka Services) Report came in better than forcast. The index promptly rallied to its intraday high during the lunch hour. But today’s high was -0.05% below yesterday’s close. The index ended the day with a -0.28% loss. Today’s selling on so-so volume was probably attibutable to caution in advance of the big economic reports on Thursday and Friday, most notably our first look at Q3 GDP and the October Employment Report.

Bubble That Everyone Admits is a Bubble / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

This is one of the few times where the benefactors or professionals who benefit from the bubbles, in this case created by the Federal Reserve, fully and openly acknowledge that stock prices and certain other asset classes are completely divorced from fundamental valuations.

Why November May Not Be So Safe Stock Market Investors / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: Since the beginning of the year, key stock indices have provided investors with hefty gains; with the S&P 500 having increased more than 23% from January to October. Other key stock indices, like the Dow Jones Industrial Average and the NASDAQ composite index, have provided similar returns.

ObamaCare and Inflation to the Stock Markets Rescue? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Michael_Pento

The market averages continue to set record highs, as investors are forced by the Fed into stock market speculation due to artificially-suppressed interest rates. But neither our central bank nor corporate measures deployed solely to increase earnings per share while ignoring revenue declines (see IBM's announcement of a stock buyback) can hide the fact that the underlying economic growth is deteriorating.

Good Morning!

TNX is pulling back from its impulsive high this morning. The pattern may not be complete to the upside, but there certainly is room for a short reprieve from time to time. The Cycles Model suggests that Treasuries may decline through Thanksgiving before a turn higher.

How to Become Your Own Central Bank / Stock-Markets / Investing 2013

By: Money_Morning

Central banks may have foolish policies, but central bankers are no dummies.

They know exactly what they're doing. They even comprehend a few of the implications, too.

Which is why it's interesting that some American central bankers have suggested doing away with the debt ceiling altogether.

Have We Reached the Stocks Bull Market Top? / 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 severe correction of 2007-2009 may have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - SPX initial top in place.

SP500, NAS Stock Market New Highs v Your Individual Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

Markets tend to rally during the last two months of the year, but like the indexes, that is a statement of averages, and averages do not always tell the whole story. It is not a secret that the Lying Ben schemers have been responsible for propping up the volume- deficient, individual-investor-absent stock market. What is of critical importance for any investor is to measure his/her portfolio against the overall market.

Easy Money, Excess Liquidity, Anatomy of Market Bubbles and Crashes / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: John_Mauldin

John (Note to readers: A small number of readers reported receiving a blank email of today's Thoughts from the Frontline, and so we decided to resend the letter in order to ensure that all readers were getting it.)

The difference between genius and stupidity is that genius has its limits. – Albert Einstein

Genius is a rising stock market. – John Kenneth Galbraith

Any plan conceived in moderation must fail when circumstances are set in extremes. – Prince Metternich

You can almost feel it in the fall air (unless you are in the Southern Hemisphere). The froth and foam on markets of all shapes and sizes all over the world. It is an exhilarating feeling, and the pundits who populate the media outlets are bubbling over with it. There is nothing like a rising market to help lift our mood. Unless of course, as Prof. Kindleberger famously cautioned (see below), we are not participating in that rising market. Then we feel like losers. But what if the rising market is … a bubble? Are we smart enough to ride and then step aside before it bursts? Research says we all think that we are, yet we rarely demonstrate the actual ability.
