Is Your Investment Portfolio a House of Cards? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Axel_Merk

The S&P 500 continues to hit new all time highs, but is your portfolio built on a house of cards? The politics to kick the proverbial can down the road may unleash dynamics that could be hazardous to your wealth.

The one thing politicians throughout the world have in common is that they rarely ever blame themselves. They tend to diffuse responsibility or place blame on groups such as political opponents, the wealthy, or foreigners.

Stock Market - Is Now the Time to Go To Cash? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Christopher_Quigley

Many commentators are asking whether this market is showing real signs of exhaustion, suggesting that it is time to get out, go to cash, and wait for a serious correction or collapse to jump back in.

To try to answer this question let us look at the situation from a more distant perspective than the standard one. Accordingly, I am going to adopt a 6 year view using the following charts set out below: 1. The Dow Transports, 2. The Dow Industrials, 3. The S & P 500, 4. The NASDAQ 100, 5. The Russell 2000 (small cap. stocks: weekly), The Russell 2000 (small cap. stocks: daily), 7. The NYSE A/D Line and 8. The index of the percentage of stocks above their 200 DMA.

Economic Recovery and Markets - The Madness of Crowds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Ty_Andros

Never in my 30+ year career as a market observer have I seen so many out on a limb which is about to be SAWED OFF. Those who live within the matrix are fully loaded for a recovery which is not and will not appear. Nominally the Main stream media can proclaim ECONOMIC recovery has arrived, point to the rising developed world stock markets, seemingly benign bond markets of all categories: sovereign, investment grade and Junk, Private equity, corporate buy backs and more have priced in "Happy Days are here again". HFT, unrestrained leverage in a financially repressed world and Quantitative easing have done the rest in pushing financial assets to heights rarely, if ever, seen. Volatility is at all-time lows in most markets and investor confidence at superhuman levels. Like a boat where all the passengers are on one side of the boat and it is about to capsize, investors similarly have no fear.

Stock Market Dow Trend Forecast Summer 2014 By Nadeem Walayat / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Nadeem_Walayat

No 'Sell in May and Go Away' this year for Either Bulls or Bears

Watching the disconnect between stock prices and what passes for stock market commentary since my last detailed look at the stock market of early Feb 2014 is akin to watching two parallel universes in motion that never meet! Where the stock market exists in one universe and the so called stock market analysts (who are really either sales men or journalists who think they are analysts) residing in another. Whilst stocks relentlessly grind higher the others relentlessly scream at the top of their lungs, the 'top is in' the 'top is definitely in this time' following every reaction off a high only to see the stock market once more pop to a new all time high a few weeks later. They MUST reside in separate universes, how else can they continue to reconcile such madness week in week out? It's literally witnessing a form of mass delusion.

ECB Thursday...Jobs Friday....Fireworks?.... Stock Market Froth Out Of Control.. / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

Fireworks could be in the cards for the market here. We have two huge events the next two mornings. We have the ECB voting on rate reductions tonight as well as deciding on a QE infusion. If the Euro zone gets what they want, we should see it rally, and that should spill over to our markets ahead of the open. If the market doesn't get what it wants, then the euro zone markets could crash out and things could get very tough for the bulls in the morning.

Secrets of the Strategic Investors / Stock-Markets / Investing 2014

By: The_Gold_Report

How do you calculate ROI on investment conferences? They often require travel expenses, time away from the office and some eating of rubber chicken with mysterious sauces. But the right conference can result in a whole new way of looking at your portfolio. To evaluate the recent Altegris/Mauldin Strategic Investment Conference in San Diego, The Gold Report asked attendees for their insights on the major themes from thought leaders such as Former Speaker of the House of Representatives and host of CNN's Crossfire Newt Gingrich, Gluskin Sheff + Associates Chief Economist David Rosenberg and Hoisington Investment Management Executive Vice President Lacy Hunt.

Low Interest Rates Won't Hide This Looming Threat Forever / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael E. Lewitt writes: Financial markets are experiencing a significant divergence in 2014 between the direction of stocks and bonds.

While the S&P 500 and Dow Jones Industrial Average have traded to new record highs, the yields on benchmark Treasury bonds have dropped sharply.

Dow Countdown To Stock Market Meltdown / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Austin_Galt

“It’s not timing the market but time in the market”. Yep, we’ve all heard this refrain from market commentators on TV disguised as experts. Some go even further saying it’s impossible to time the market. Well, what a load of codswallop! Anyone that says this to you is a happily oblivious member of the Flat Earth Society (FES). Sure, FES members can still function well and be successful in their one dimensional world. Ignorant bliss can be extremely satisfying. However, in the analysis I’ve undertaken of the Dow, there is clear evidence presented that the market can, despite the naysayers, indeed be timed.

Marc Faber Talks Vietnam Investment - How to Understand Vietnam Like Never Before / Stock-Markets / Asian Economies

By: Keith_Hilden

In the latest Squawkonomics interview with Marc Faber, Marc offered insights and direction about the future of the Vietnamese economy. Marc laid out that Vietnamese stocks are essentially in a bottoming out phase, and valuations of Vietnamese equities are looking particularly attractive at this point. Marc also explained to us how Vietnamese have different economic habits unfamiliar to many Western countries such as buying houses with gold outright, and how different metrics are required to understand the value of the Vietnamese economy. Check out the video below for more investment insight from Marc Faber on Vietnam. Marc will be speaking at the upcoming Vietnam Investment Forum in Ho Chi Minh on June 19 to inform investors how to invest in Vietnam and find opportunity and value amid the current South China Sea tensions. For those interested in attending, be sure to contact Vicente Nguyen at support@vietnaminvestmentforum.vn for more information.

Stock Market Chop, Sadly Continues.....ISM Numbers Changing Unexpectedly.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

I find it annoying. How about you? Do you enjoy this nonsense? I don't, but this is what we have and must accept. The market tried hard to sell decently today. The Nasdaq was down over thirty points, thanks mostly to losses in Google Inc. (GOOG), and especially Apple Inc. (AAPL). AAPL is so heavily weighted, and at one point it was down ten points. Amazingly, even with AAPL down ten points, the Nasdaq was able to bounce back. Strength is strength, and this market continues to find a way, even when a leader says I'm tired, such as AAPL did today.

Stock Market Rally - Is this the End? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: John_Rubino

Eventually, every finance geek learns that calling market tops — at least publicly — is so hard that it’s not worth the reputation risk. This is especially true in an era of pervasive government manipulation, where price distortions can persist for far longer than any kind of rational analysis can justify.

Is President Obama the World's Greatest Market Timer? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: Imagine someone giving one single piece of investment advice in his lifetime and absolutely nailing it, pronouncing a buying opportunity at one of the greatest inflection points in history, just before large cap stocks doubled and small cap stocks tripled.

Although it's not widely recognized, that's exactly what President Obama did on March 4, 2009.

Gujarat, India Like Investing in China… In 1980 / Stock-Markets / India

Peter Krauth writes: Hardly anyone would argue that China isn't an economic miracle.

Over the last 20 years, its 1.3 billion people have propelled the Chinese economy into the world's No. 2 spot.

But two decades of blistering 10% annual growth have moderated to 7%.

Stocks Continue Long-Term Uptrend, Will It Accelerate Or Reverse? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion speculative long positions are still favored (with stop-loss at 1,885, S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is neutral, and our short-term outlook is bullish, following a breakout above consolidation:

Intraday (next 24 hours) outlook: neutral
Short-term (next 1-2 weeks) outlook: bullish
Medium-term (next 1-3 months) outlook: neutral
Long-term outlook (next year): bullish

Stock Market Approaching A Short-Term 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, 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 - Probably tracing out an ending diagonal pattern.

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.

Stock Market Grinding Higher.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

The market continues its dance with higher prices while the bears sit on the sidelines wishing they could partake in the festivities. Just not meant to be even though they have reasons to expect better times, but more on that later. The market tried to sell today a bit, but the bulls refused to let things get out of hand. The Nasdaq 100 slightly under performed today but that's not bad since it has outperformed so much lately as the heavily beaten down stocks are finally getting a bid from severely oversold conditions. The reason for the under-performance today was the large reversal from Apple Inc. (AAPL) as it went from up near points to down a couple when all was said and done. I guess even AAPL has to take the occasional vacation from upside action.

Stock Market Sell in May? 7.5% Drop Possible / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Brad_Gudgeon

Last time, I was looking for an important low on June 3.  I believe the normal cycle tops due earlier this month and again last Tuesday have extended.  In the past, whenever this has occurred we have seen a more important drop ahead than 4-6%.

On the chart below, there are cycles and lines of resistance noted.  Where we are right now is unusually similar to the May 22, 2013 top.  The rising bottoms line connects the Mar ’09 and Oct ’11 bottoms and joins the blue descending line from the Jan ’14 top to the April ’14 bottom (marked in E-Wave as X), along with the rising green line.

German Dax 10000 New All Time High? / Stock-Markets / Germany

By: Gregor_Horvat

Most of the FX markets are still slow and choppy within corrective price action, while metals and stocks are trading completely on their own. We have seen a push to a new high on the S&P 500 yesterday, very close to 1920. At the same time German DAX remained trapped in range because of low volume during the European session. Some would have thought that the S&P can be in final stages here within bigger uptrend, but if we consider that DAX is still in fourth wave then we need to be aware of even higher swings on US markets.

How to Play This Flat Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: More than a few investors are scratching their heads over the Dow's performance so far in 2014.

It stumbled out of the gate in January and February, then rallied from March through mid-April, then gave up the ghost in early May and has been bumping up and down ever since as investors swing back and forth from anxiety to complacency.

What's going on here, and how do you play it?

Stock Market New All Time Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

For a four day trading week the market did fairly well. It opened at new all time highs on Tuesday. Then made higher highs, with small pullbacks along the way, every day this week. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.95%, the NDX/NAZ were +1.50%, and the DJ World gained 0.75%. On the economic front reports continue to come in higher. On the uptick: durable goods, FHFA housing, consumer confidence/sentiment, pending home sales, personal income, the PCE, Chicago PMI, the WLEI, the monetary base, and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: personal spending, Case-Shiller and Q1 GDP. Next week we get the ISM indices, monthly Payrolls and the FED’s Beige book.
