Dow Stocks Bull Market Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

Another wild week volatile week that started off quite choppy to the downside. Then ended with a strong rally to the upside. After closing last week at SPX 1783, the market dropped to 1738 by Wednesday morning. Next it rallied, over the next two days, to end the week at SPX 1797. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.7%, the NDX/NAZ were +0.8%, and the DJ World index gained 0.7%. Economic reports for the week were slightly to the downside: 7 to 6. On the uptick: construction spending, ISM services, monthly payrolls, consumer credit, plus both the unemployment rate and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: ISM manufacturing, monthly auto sales, factory orders, the ADP index, the WLEI, the monetary base, and the trade deficit worsened. Next week we get a look at Industrial production and Retail sales.

Stocks and Commodities Great Inflation of 2014 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Toby_Connor

For over a year now I've been expecting 2014 to be the year when the unintended consequences of five years of QE come home to roost. By the end of the year we are going to have a massive inflationary spike in commodity prices that will collapse the global economy. It's all going to start with a final manic melt up phase in the stock market over the next 3-4 months. Make no mistake this bull market will not be over until the NASDAQ tests it's all time high above 5000.

Stock Market Napalm - Can You Hear the Popping Sounds? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Ty_Andros

Once again the smell of NAPALM is in the air.  Reversals in liquidity and Massive markets reaction to PUNY emerging market outflows PROBABLY signals the next waves of insolvencies are STRIKING as I write this.  Most main stream economists, banksters, brokers, governments and public servants are calling for continued recovery in developed world economies; to me it APPEARS we just saw the PEAK.

As Warren Buffet once said “When the tides go out we find out who has been swimming naked” and we are about to see this statement in ACTION!!!

As Sochi Starts, 1929 Stock Market Crash Warnings Accelerate / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Doug_Wakefield

"Good evening. This is an extraordinary period for America's economy. Over the past few weeks, many Americans have felt anxiety about their finances and their future. I understand their worry and their frustration. We've seen triple-digit swings in the stock market. Major financial institutions have teetered on the edge of collapse, and some have failed. As uncertainty has grown, many banks have restricted lending. Credit markets have frozen. And families and businesses have found it harder to borrow money.

We're in the midst of a serious financial crisis, and the federal government is responding with decisive action....

Will Stock Market 2014 be Like 2008? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Clif_Droke

One of the biggest problems for the stock market entering 2014 was the near unanimous belief on Wall Street that stock prices would only go higher this year. Indeed, you had to look a long way to find even a hint of bearishness at the start of the year.

Just how bullish were investors before the decline began? According to Bloomberg Businessweek, advisers surveyed by the National Association of Active Investment Managers had 98.3 percent of their clients' portfolios allocated to stocks in January before the decline began. By comparison, exposure to equities averaged 72 percent during 2013. It's easy to see from this near-unanimity of belief in equities why the correction was bound to occur.

Stock Market Sell-Off Gives Us “Miracle Material” Bargain Of The Year / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: I was one of the first analysts to pronounce this as the “Golden Age of Materials Science.”

You know what I’m talking about – all those “Miracle Materials” that are changing our lives: There are the advanced composites that lighten our airliners; the great plastics that increase the “cool factor” of today’s cars – while also making them safer and more economical. It’s one of earth’s more abundant resources; and the new discoveries, such as graphene, which promise to revolutionize biotechnology, computers and industry.

Stock Market Selloff Starts, New Bear Market? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Zeal_LLC

Selling has finally returned to the US stock markets, short-circuiting their year-old levitation.  This new downside action of the last couple weeks looks very different from anything witnessed in 2013.  Is it just another minor and short-lived pullback, the vanguard of a full-blown correction, or the dawn of a new cyclical bear market?  The prudent strategy for traders varies greatly with this selloff’s likely magnitude.

How to Profit from the Economic Turmoil in Emerging Markets / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Paul Whitefoot writes: The long-expected hit to the emerging markets is finally upon us. The fact that the emerging markets are taking a beating isn’t a total surprise; on the other hand, everyone running for the exits is.

But as physics proves, for every action there’s an equal and opposite reaction—nothing can escape physics; not even Wall Street or the emerging markets.

February to Be a Repeat of January’s Stock Market Losses? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: Since the beginning of the year, key stock indices have fallen, and this is making investors nervous. They are asking what will happen next. The first month of the year is usually good for the stock market, but that wasn’t the case this year. The S&P 500 fell more than three percent and other key stock indices showed the same, if not worse, returns.

Stock Market Rally Before the Big Jobs Report / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: Before the market opened, the latest new jobless claims report was a bit better than expected and European markets were rallying. The S&P 500 followed suit, rallying at the open and trading higher through the day to its 1.24% close, just fractionally off its 1.28% intraday high shortly before the bell. Today’s rally comes in advance of tomorrow’s big employment report for January. The mainstream consensus is for 175K-185K new nonfarm jobs. My forecast? A beat will be good news, and a miss will probably be dismissed as weather related.

Global Stock Markets Throw a Taper Tantrum / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Gary_Dorsch

A sharp sell-off in the global stock markets so far this year has left many small investors a bit puzzled and panicky, and unsure how to react. Retail investors in the US, who watched the from the sidelines in a state of disbelief, as the “Least Loved” Bull market on Wall Street, continued to climb to new all-time highs, - finally decided to throw in the towel in the second half of 2013, and jumped aboard the Bullish bandwagon. The late converts plowed $175-billion of their savings into US-equity funds, helping to push the S&P-500 Index to an all-time high at the 1,850-level. They gave little thought that maybe, the “Least Loved” Bull had climbed “too far and too fast” after gaining +175% from the Great Recession low.

Stock Market Bottoms Have Two Elements: We’re Still Missing One / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: Monday’s ISM wipeout pushed the stock market into deeply oversold territory as fear levels in the market began to surge. The ISM Manufacturing PMI came in at 51.3 versus the estimated 56.0 reading and down from 57.0 for December 2013 and was the biggest miss in years, elevating growth fears. However, while many bears will dismiss pundits blaming the cold weather and see the miss as a sign of things to come, the ISM national PMI is just one survey and it moved opposite to many of the regional Fed manufacturing surveys for January. In fact, when reviewing various PMI readings across the country there were more positive improvements than negative with the average among surveys increasing during the month, as shown below. Note the positive changes in the Austin PMI (+9.4) and the Empire Manufacturing Survey (+10.3) were greater in size than the negative declines. Another encouraging development was a slight uptick in the JP Morgan Global Composite PMI.

Why Emerging Markets Are Heading for Falling Over the Cliff / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Frank_Shostak

In countries such as Turkey and Argentina a tighter stance implemented by central banks has set in motion an economic bust. In Turkey the central bank has raised the one week repo rate to 10 percent from 4.5 percent while in Argentina the 3-month Treasury bill rate climbed to 25.89 percent from 16 percent in early January. In Argentina an increase in rates took place once the central bank aggressively curbed its monetary pumping, while in Turkey the central bank raised its policy rate.

Steps to Overcoming Losses in a Falling Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: “What should you do when the house isn’t in order?”

A good friend of mine asked this question back in 2011. At that time, key stock indices were plunging lower due to issues regarding the U.S. debt ceiling. There was uncertainty, and many wondered what would happen next. I remember this question now because the key stock indices nowadays are falling due to troubles in the emerging markets and there seems to be panic—similar to what we were experiencing when I first heard this question.

Zombie Banking System Still A Clear and Present Danger to Financial Stability / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2014

By: Mike_Whitney

The selloff that began in May 2013, when the Fed announced its plan to scale back its asset purchases, resumed with a vengeance on Monday as global shares were slammed in heavy trading sending the Dow Jones for a 326 point-loss on the day. The proximate cause of the rout was a worse-than-expected manufacturing report and sluggish construction spending, but the underlying source of the trouble was the Fed’s decision to wind down QE which, according to Bloomberg news, “helped drive the S and P 500 up 157 percent from a 12-year low in 2009.” The Fed’s tightening has reversed the dynamic that pushed equities into the stratosphere and generated an unprecedented boom in the emerging markets. Now capital is fleeing the EMs to the safety of US Treasuries while jittery investors ditch stocks and wait to see if the storm passes or gradually gains strength.

Stock Market Sentiment Playing Out perfectly....... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

Just a few weeks ago we were at 46% on the bull-bear spread. We had spent numerous weeks trading with a number above 40%, which is extremely rare and unusual. You know it can't last, but you never know when it's going to snap. We finally snapped, and look where we are now. 28.5%. How sweet is that! The market is doing its dirty deed to get folks extremely pessimistic. It had to come, and now it's here. We're happy about that to be sure. Now we need to get it lower. Teens would be a thing of beauty. I think it'll happen, and it won't take too much longer. Another 2-4 weeks of poor action, and we'll be looking at a spread below 20%. That would be music to the ears of all the bulls out there. The only problem, of course, would be that the bulls will be too afraid to do any buying when the right time is here. They'll be fearful of the market that has allowed the spread to get under 20%.
