Big Brother Is Watching! Worlds Bond Markets Could Seize Up / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Robert_M_Williams

“In life we all have an unspeakable secret, and unreachable dream, an irreversible regret, and an unforgettable love.”  Diego Marchi

A month ago we learned that the FBI was bugging the phones in the cloakrooms of Congress and listening to personal conversations of reporters and politicians. Then two weeks ago we read that the IRS was using their power against Obama’s political opponents. So I guess it shouldn’t come as a surprise to learn that the National Security Agency is currently collecting the telephone records of millions of US customers of Verizon, one of America's largest telecom providers, under a top secret court order issued in April. The order, a copy of which has been obtained by the Guardian, requires Verizon on an “ongoing, daily basis” to give the NSA information on all telephone calls in its system, both within the US and between the US and other countries.

Stock Market Support Holds...For Now... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

The markets sold hard for a couple of weeks and when they hit the 50-day exponential moving averages on the key index daily charts they found a way to bounce which is not a great shock since some short-term charts got oversold. The combination of those 50-day tests and oversold sixty minute charts gave us a nice bounce. The real question on everyone's mind is whether the market has seen the lows from this correction or whether there's more to come once this bounce is over. There are a few ways to look at it. It's possible that the market will just whipsaw about for some weeks as the MACD's try to improve their current position.

Positive End to a Volatile Stock Market Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The S&P 500 closed an exceptionally volatile week with a gain of 0.78%, thanks to the Friday gain of 1.28%. Today’s employment report for May was a perfect signal to the bulls: Nonfarm employment met or slightly beat expectations, so that key economic indicator is still in the green, but the unemployment rate ticked up ever so slightly from 7.51% to 7.56%. And since we round to a single decimal, it registered as a full tenth higher at 7.6%. Why the uptick? Labor force participation grew faster (up 420K) than the new jobs (175K). That uptick suggests that the Fed won’t be tapering QE in the near term, and it was that fear of tapering that created the high volatility this week.

How to Protect Your Cash in Times of Crisis / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Don_Miller

The large depositors at Cypriot banks are shouldering a heavy burden. You’ll recall what happened back in March when the Eurozone financial wizards forced average citizens to participate in what was called a “bail-in.” It seems downright unfair for depositors with more than 100,000 euros to suffer a levy on up to 60% of their deposits. That’s about $140,000, give or take, at current exchange rates. And if you’re a retiree, having the government swipe $84,000 from your $140,000 account just to bail out feckless bankers is a pretty big deal

By: Chris_Vermeulen

This week has played out perfectly thus far. The expected volatility of intraday price swings and lower prices for stocks has happened. The Vix has collapsed the 15% which I mentioned would happen just 2 days ago and money is flowing out of precious metals and miners today in a big way as that risk off money is now moving into Risk-On Stocks.

David Zeiler writes: The Hindenburg Omen-a harbinger of stock market crashes-eerily appeared again last week...and the Dow Jones promptly dropped 205 points. But its appearance brought mostly scorn from the mainstream financial media.

Here are just a few of the headlines from the past week:

Why a Eurozone Break-Up Could Happen / Stock-Markets / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: DailyGainsLetter

Moe Zulfiqar writes: The eurozone crisis has been haunting the global economy for a while.

Countries in the common currency region are deteriorating very quickly. Look at the Spanish economy, for example: in the first quarter of 2013, it contracted 0.5% after continuing its slide from the last quarter of 2012, when it declined 0.8%. The Spanish economy, the fourth-biggest in the eurozone, has been contracting for seven successive quarters. (Source: “Austerity chokes off Spanish economy,” Deutsche Welle, May 30, 2013.)

Stock Market Margin Buying Surpasses 2007 Danger Levels – Another Crash Coming? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_Morning

Gary Gately writes: There's nothing like buying securities with money you don't have - or, more precisely, with borrowed money from your broker, with your investments as collateral.

It's called buying on margin, and it's soaring as the market continues its tear and speculative investors seek a piece of the action. As your stocks appreciate you can borrow even more. A market rally lets you expand your portfolio by piling on more debt.

Investors Beware: Underlying Weakness in Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

George Leong writes: The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) is down 2.3% from its record-high on May 28, but just like the S&P 500, the DJIA appears to be flashing some fatigue on the charts, suggesting some stock market risk and possible market correction.

Now, this may only be a temporary pause, or it could be foreshadowing some upcoming selling, stock market risk, or a potential buying opportunity.

Stock Market Correcting Harder..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

The market is finally feeling the wrath of the correction. Emotions are flying high. People are confused and angry. That's when you know the market has begun to sell with some force. When people hate the game or anyone they depend on when playing the game, you know the selling has truly begun. It's easy to be happy when markets are climbing, but it's not so easy when it finally sells 5-8%. You hope people have taken the warnings about the difficulty of sustainable upside seriously and weren't playing too inappropriately, but the game does beg for action since in reality, it's nothing more than a big casino in many ways. The lure of playing is always there. There's no one to stop you. You're free to do whatever you want at all times. The house isn't watching. You are there for six and a half hours if you don't include pre- and post-market action and you have the freedom to do whatever you want.

What Happens When the Stock Market Loses Life Support? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

Stocks are on borrowed time.

The single item that has driven stock prices over the last four plus years (since the 2008 Crash) has been the Fed’s expansion of its balance sheet. David Rosenberg of Gluskin Sheff, depicted this fact beautifully in the chart below:

A Summer Stock Market Crash Scenario / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Clif_Droke

Despite the recent weakness, the broad market has displayed a fair amount of resilience in the face of rising interest rates and falling commodity prices. The charts even leave us with some hope that there will be one more rally to new highs in the coming weeks. But a growing list of problems also suggests the market could be setting up for a repeat of the 1998 mini-crash later this summer.

There are several parallels between now and the spring and summer of 1998 which led to the July-October decline. The year 1998 was an exceptionally strong one for U.S. equities for the first half of the year; that year also witnessed a strengthening domestic economy. Like this year, however, 1998 saw trouble begin overseas with global weakness reflected by falling commodity prices.

Why Tracking the Heavily Shorted Stocks Makes Sense / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: When I look at potential trading opportunities, I like to scan for stocks that have high short selling positions in them. These are the traders betting against the stock.

Now, while there’s always some validity to why a stock becomes a short selling target, it’s not always the case; this is where I see contrarian trading opportunities.

Everything You Believe Is Wrong / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Investment_U

Marc Lichtenfeld writes: I’m reading a fascinating book called the Emperor of All Maladies by Siddhartha Mukherjee. It details the history of cancer and cancer treatments.

What I find most interesting is not the chemistry or biology in how new medicines were discovered (the book is not heavy on the science, so don’t be scared off). Instead, what makes the book so thought provoking is how sure doctors were of their philosophies toward cancer… and yet were completely wrong.

Financial Contagions Spread Global Investment Dysfunction / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Dan_Amerman

Australia and New Zealand, as well as many other nations around the world, have caught an economic virus of sorts. This contagion is primarily being spread by Japan, the United States and the European Monetary Union, all of whom have undertaken increasingly irresponsible monetary and financial policies whose effects are proving communicable.

People are used to goods being in global competition, where the prize goes to those nations who produce the best goods at the lowest cost. However, there is a loophole in this simple relationship, whereby cost depends on the relative value of a nation's currency, and that can be deliberately altered by a nation.
