Huge Cracks In US Financial Fortress, Petro-Dollar Final Death Throes / Stock-Markets / US Dollar

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Many analyst writers choose the Black Swan analogy to describe deeply ominous events in progress, with little forward notice. The analogy simply does not fit anymore, as an armada of black swans is more appropriate, spotted on regular and frequent sightings. The Jackass preference is to describe a series of major cracks in the financial fortress that defends the USDollar system and its decrepit USTreasury Bond shuttle buggy. The vehicle is overloaded with supply and bereft of investors, upheld by a printing press, explained by pure heresy. Its derivative coil on the undercarriage axel system is broken from the overdone leverage and hidden machinations. The integrity of the USD/USTB brand name was cast off the American coat of arms along with the Lehman Brothers killing to save Goldman Sachs, the adoption of Fannie Mae to conceal the fraud, and the AIG to contain the derivative payouts. The October Hat Trick Letter explains the Wall Street saga behind the scenes on the GSax rescue, managed by the USDept Treasury office. The US financial fortress died in September 2008, when the Jackass made the USGovt debt default forecast. What has happened in the following long five years has been an incredibly prolonged and desperate attempt, its creativity recognized, to extend life support to a corpse beset by necrosis and sclerosis, whose blood has turned toxic, lacking any oxygen (capital). The US nation has lost its way, no longer capable of comprehending capitalism. Its policy initiatives actively destroy precious capital on the banker altar, celebrating the dark side with celebrations of fire. The emaciated body economic is being prepared to be handled by the JPMorgue for processing.

Stocks Secular Bull and Bear Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: Was the March 2009 low the end of a secular bear market and the beginning of a secular bull? Without crystal ball, we simply don’t know.

One thing we can do is examine the past to broaden our understanding of the range of possibilities. An obvious feature of this inflation-adjusted is the pattern of long-term alternations between up-and down-trends. Market historians call these “secular” bull and bear markets from the Latin word saeculum “long period of time” (in contrast to aeternus “eternal” — the type of bull market we fantasize about).

QE Causing Bubbles in Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: As most readers know, I have been calling for a reduction in the Federal Reserve’s quantitative easing (QE) program for some time. My worry has been that the current level of quantitative easing is not doing much to help Main Street, and it is building potentially dangerous risks to our economy over the long term.

I’m worried about the future of this country, and yes, even my investments. I don’t want my hard-earned wealth to disappear due to mistakes made by the Federal Reserve in continuing to pump quantitative easing.

Protect Your Money From U.S. Debt Crisis / Stock-Markets / US Debt

By: EWI

Dear Reader

Ever heard of a wedding crasher? You know -- that distant “cousin” who shows up uninvited, hangs around the open bar all night, chugs down double-everythings and falls on his butt on the dance floor -- all before mysteriously vanishing and leaving his night of indulgence on the father of the bride’s tab.

How Can We Have Record Bad Loans And Record Excess Liquidity At The Same Time? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Raul_I_Meijer

We can read these days that Spain has come out of its recession. The Bank of Spain reported last week that GDP expanded by 0.1% in Q3. But in a country with 26% unemployment and 55% youth unemployment, such statements are devoid of any real meaning. They're mere technicality niceties. Because if anything screams recession, it's those kinds of unemployment numbers. Moreover, where do you think that 0.1%, even it you would take it seriously, came from? It's really not that hard. Spain’s return to growth is due to a 15% fall in labour costs since the 2008 financial crisis. In other words: the rich side of the economy gets to look good at the expense of the poor side. A global phenomenon.

Who Needs God, When We Have Money Printing Bankers / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Doug_Wakefield

The snooze button; what a great invention. When you have awakened from a deep sleep, and know you can get ready in less time, just hit the snooze button. You know it will still awaken you for your test or to get ready for your 8:00 flight, but in the meantime, you can enjoy a few more moments of precious sleep.

However, if you keep hitting snooze and fail to look at the time, you can also awaken to find that the extra sleep has now placed you in a position where you missed the final exam or your flight. The rewards for a few extra moments of sleep have suddenly become very costly.

Inflation Stealth Taxes Consume Stock Market Gains and Retirement Plans / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Dan_Amerman

What if bottom line investment results for a nation as a whole were very different than the great majority of investors understood? What if most long term investment plans were based on what could be quite easily shown to be "bad information"?

These questions may seem a little difficult to accept, because clearly, with the continuous stream of news, commentary and analysis about investment markets that are available 24/7 in newspapers, magazines, blogs and cable business news – such a discrepancy couldn't exist.

The Abnormal New Normal / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: HRA_Advisory

The US dodged a bullet and the Vancouver Subscriber Investment Summit had a great turn out on the same day. Coincidence? I think not.

Seriously; thanks from Keith, Lawrence and I for the great turnout. I'd like to thank the companies that presented as they make these days possible. Last but definitely not least I congratulate Nichola Vermiere and Katy Severs for organizing a great event and doing all the hard work to make sure it was well attended and went off without a hitch. People thanked me for a great show but It's Nichola and Katy that do the heavy lifting. I just show up and try not to trip over the microphone wire.

How to Protect Your Portfolio as Government Debt Cripples America / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: Whenever I’m asked what I think has the biggest potential impact not only on the stock market, but also on our way of life, I always point to the continued increase in government debt.

Over the short term, the Federal Reserve has attempted to stimulate the economy partially by buying U.S. Treasuries. Under normal monetary policy, the Federal Reserve only directly impacts short-term interest rates. To reduce long-term interest rates, the Fed began buying U.S. Treasuries, pushing up the price and lowering the yield.

Dow Closes at New All Time High Despite Academics, Journalists and Perma Bears Gibberish / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Nadeem_Walayat

New Dow (DJIA) closing high of 15,680 illustrates that the fundamentals as perceived by academic economists, pseudo-economists (Journalists) and market commentators (sales men) which suggested that following the last stock market peak of Mid September, and in the light of dire news of U.S. government shutdown, possible debt default, QE tapering and slowing econcomy that the stock market looked set to have entered into another New bear market. The calls for such dire expectations reached their maximum intensity at the depths of the stock market correction by early October where many commentators in the mainstream press and BlogosFear could be found proclaiming that "The Top Was In", "The Top Was In", and continuing along a now very familiar argument for a debt deflationary death spiral, an argument that is more than 5 years and has YET to materialise whilst 'normal' and seasonally expected stock market corrections have ALWAYS resolved to new all time highs, just as was the case this time around.

Stock Market Ominous Omens / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Ed_Carlson

With new highs in the S&P 500 last week the bulls are excited again. Never mind the fact that the Dow industrials index is still well below its 9/18/13 high. When determining the health of the broad market technicians like to “look beneath the hood” to the performance of individual sectors particularly the more cyclical groups.

Stock Market Waiting on the Fed at the Top of the Range / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Yes, it's a RISING channel!

That's why we are long-term BULLISH but short-term BEARISH. As noted by TraderStewie, this is a movie we've seen before, with the S&P making a power-move to the top of the channel, only to find resistance there that turned out not to be futile.

Stock Market Bearish and Bullish Trend Outlooks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

My Stock market trend analysis is likely different from what you think is about to unfold. Keep an open mind as this is just showing you both sides of the coin from a technical stand point. Remember, the market likes to trend in the direction which causes the most investor pain.

Since the stock market bottom in 2009 equities has been rising which is great, but this train could be setting up to do the unthinkable. What do I mean? Well, let’s take a look at the two possible outcomes.

Stock Market Drifts High Ahead of Fed / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jesse

Today was a very quiet day in the markets with light volumes and a slight upward bias as markets toddle along on earnings results and expectations of no changes from the Fed on Wednesday.

This is a 'dull market.' It looks a bit toppy but I think it might take something to shake the bulls out of their sleepwalking the indices higher.

Stock Market Important Top Within Next Two Weeks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

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 is back in a short-term uptrend but within days of a top.

Nobel Prize Winner Says Bubbles Don’t Exist / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Casey_Research

By Doug French: No wonder investors don't take economists seriously. Or if they do, they shouldn't. Since Richard Nixon interrupted Hoss and Little Joe on a Sunday night in August 1971, it's been one boom and bust after another. But don't tell that to the latest Nobel Prize co-winner, Eugene Fama, the founder of the efficient-market hypothesis.

The efficient-market hypothesis asserts that financial markets are "informationally efficient," claiming one cannot consistently achieve returns in excess of average market returns on a risk-adjusted basis.

Is Stock Market Perma-Bearishness a Form of Mental Illness? / Stock-Markets / Trader Psychology

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: There was a revealing story in this week’s Wall Street Journal…

David Rosenberg, the chief economist and market strategist at Gluskin Sheff & Associates, spent a decade warning about the health of the U.S. economy and the future of the stock market. That meant he missed the bull market a decade ago but helped the firm’s clients avoid the 2007 to 2008 financial crisis. Unfortunately, he missed the rebound that followed. (Such is the fate of market timers and other psychics and clairvoyants.)

Repo, Baby, Repo: How Unregulated Banking Triggered Financial Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Whitney

“Repo has a flaw: It is vulnerable to panic, that is, ‘depositors’ may ‘withdraw’ their money at any time, forcing the system into massive deleveraging. We saw this over and over again with demand deposits in all of U.S. history prior to deposit insurance. This problem has not been addressed by the Dodd-Frank legislation. So, it could happen again.”–Gary B. Gorton, Professor of Management and Finance, Yale School of Management (lifted from Repowatch)
