Taking Advantage of Recent Lows in Stock Market Volatility Index / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: J_W_Jones

One of the newest option products to appear in our universe as an options trader is the option series designed to trade the volatility index (VIX). The VIX is a measurement of the implied volatility of the S&P 500 index.

To review quickly, the implied volatility of an options series is reflective of the aggregate market opinion of the future volatility of a given underlying asset. In terms of the Volatility Index, the price is the current market opinion of the future volatility in the S&P 500 Index over the next 12 months.

Stocks Bear Market Focus Point: Equities merely the froth on the financial cappuccino / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Garry_Abeshouse

As the banks continue to take advantage of the free money offered by the US Fed to feed their financial habit, it is important to remember that equity markets have now become merely the froth and bubbles on top of the financial cappuccino, while the currency markets are the bulk of what lies underneath and true indicators of future market movements. To extend this analogy further, you could then possibly consider financial derivatives as the opiates of the markets as a whole, allowing the Bankster traders to maintain their opulent lifestyles in the way to which they have long become accustomed. But as is inevitable, when the froth deflates from this equity market bubble, there will be deflationary consequences.

Where Are We In the Stocks Secular Bear Market 2013? / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Sy_Harding

It seems to only be when the market is in a cyclical bear market that the financial media remembers that a secular bear market began in 2000.

That is completely forgotten once a cyclical bull market, like the one we’re currently enjoying, comes along within the secular bear.

CAF continues to pull back from what appears to be its Minor Wave 3 of Intermediate (5) high.  We are approaching the point where this analysis is wrong.  Should CAF decline beneath 24.01, there is a rising probability that the top is in.

Federal Reserve Shocks the Market; How to Protect Your Wealth 2013 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac writes: According to the minutes from the Federal Reserve meeting on December 11–12, it now appears highly likely that the aggressive quantitative easing policy might end sooner than most people had expected. This is a shock to many market participants who had expected an extended period of time under the current quantitative easing policy by the Federal Reserve.

Gold, Dollar Forecasts 2013, Leaping Over the Fiscal Cliff Towards the Debt Mountain / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Axel_Merk

Sidetracked by the discussion over the “fiscal cliff” and possibly a New Year’s hangover, it’s time to face 2013 in earnest. Is the yen doomed? Will the euro shine? What about Asian and emerging market currencies? Will gold continue its ascent? And the greenback, will it be in the red?

Stock Market Staying Lateral Off The Big Move Up.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

The market had a huge move a few days back when the fiscal cliff news was settled positively, the Republicans giving in to the news due to the fear of market conditions. They took a right cross as they swallowed the tax headaches in which they wanted no part. It was good news for the market, and we saw that with the huge move higher. We have spent the past three days moving laterally or consolidating that move. Good action technically as we are not seeing big volume come back in and take this down with any force. No head fake on the bull on the side of the move.

Investors Must Resolve to Follow the Money In 2013 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2013

By: Frank_Holmes

During these first days of January, many adopt an "out with the old, in with the new," approach to shed bad habits or extra pounds. Washington opted for its same ol' strategy when averting the "fiscal cliff," as the addictive nature of "can-kicking is a transatlantic sport," according to The Economist. The magazine suggests that the deal made in the 11th hour is "disturbingly similar to the eurozone's." The short-term fix did "nothing to control the unsustainable path of 'entitlement' spending on pensions and health care ... nothing to rationalize America's hideously complex and distorted tax code... and virtually nothing to close America's big structural budget deficit."

Death Knell of the Economic Recovery, the Future of Inflation / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Clif_Droke

Call it the "shot heard round the world." Its aim was ostensibly to reduce the U.S. budget deficit, its effect was tantamount to a bullet in the chest of the consumer recovery.

Last week the U.S. working class was hit with a significant payroll tax increase, a blow which couldn't have occurred at a worse time. Just as the economic recovery was starting to gain some traction, our elected officials took the proverbial wind out of its sails by raising taxes. A tax increase is the last thing needed when the economic undercurrents are deflationary, as they are now. This measure will eventually beget even more deflation as consumers reign in spending once they see their paychecks diminished courtesy of the U.S. Congress.

The Stock Markets Final Hours? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX pulled back from its Friday high, but appears to have an incomplete fractal/wave pattern. In order to confirm the top is in, we must see SPX decline beneath 1449.00. On the other hand, should SPX rise above 1464.00, the probability of another spike higher rises dramatically.

U.S. Fed Showing Financial Fear / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: EWI

Have you heard about the Fed's 180 degree turn?

Think about one of those movie scenes when the leading man does all he can to defeat the big, bad enemy -- punches, kicks, slams, stabs, shoots -- but the bad guy just won't go down. In fact he doesn't even look fazed.

That's when the protagonist really starts to worry.

Ten Steps to Financial Safety 2013 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: DeviantInvestor

  1. The best time to start preparing was about a decade ago. The second best time is today. Make a plan and act. Start by reducing living expenses and eliminating credit card debt.
  2. Expect sweeping changes! I hope the inevitable currency collapse is slow and gentle, not rapid and destructive, but history suggests rapid and painful are more likely.
  3. Phase out of paper assets and into something real. Gold, silver, diamonds, farm land, rental property, and buildings come to mind.

Stock Market Looks Set to Correct into February / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Andre_Gratian

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over) there will be another steep and prolonged decline into late 2014. It is probable, however, that the severe correction of 2007-2009 will have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 120-yr cycle.

SPX: Intermediate trend - SPX made a top at 1474 and is engaged in an A-B-C intermediate correction. The structure has been altered by the fiscal cliff resolution rally.

Stock Market Rally Peak Almost, But Not There Yet / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: WavePatternTraders

Following on from last week's report, we are within striking distance of the Sept 2012 highs on the SPX and ES.

There were many other markets that made impressive moves, the Russell 2000 making new all time highs as did the little followed value line index.

To bullish traders and Elliotticians it should have come as no surprise, if you studied price long enough and remain non-biased and accept what you see, then the upside move was virtually guaranteed, but the bears once again found out the hard way of fighting price and ignoring what price suggested.

Stocks, Bonds, and Gold Inflection Point Market Trend Forecasts 2013 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Darah_Bazargan

Most are sunk in contemplation, and hopelessly clinging on to the ever- changing era of big government spending.

Central bankers and big financial institutions are borrowing money from the FED at rates near zero, and then reinvest it into the ten year or thirty year notes, which are paying 2% to 4%. From the standpoint of any financial institution, it is logical and also more profitable than say, lending to a risky borrower.

Stock Market Bearish Wedge Pattern is Now a Triple Zigzag / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

This week’s action has “busted” a couple of chart patterns, so the SPX needed a bit of cleaning up. The major one is that the Bearish Wedge pattern is now a triple zigzag Ending Diagonal tracing the boundaries of Primary Cycle Wave [C]. This suggests that Wave [C] may go higher on Monday. The minimum target appears to be 1475.00. Cycle Top resistance is at 1481.05 and that also corresponds with the upper trendline of the Orthodox Broadening Top shown in the chart.

Markets Vanish - 'In a Flash' / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Fred_Sheehan

The same title cheered in the new years of 2011 and 2012 ("Markets Vanish - "In a Flash"," January 4, 2011 and January 8, 2012). These warnings described how quickly, and with no foresight by participants, markets evaporated in 1914. In 2013, markets have never been more susceptible to such a bolt of recognition. This is a consequence of such imperturbable faith in the prices set by besotted bureaucrats. What follows is a quick look at the nasty, brutish, and short results from government manipulations after such policy failures.

Did the Fed Lie About QE 3 and 4? / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Graham_Summers

It’s common belief that Bernanke and the Fed are printing $85 billion per month ($40 billion to buy Mortgage Backed Securities and $45 billion to buy Treasuries). After all, these are the policies that the Fed announced in September and December 2012, respectively.

The only issue with this is that the Fed lied.

Waiting for the Stock Market To Show its Hand on Next Trend Direction / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Pallotta

For the week ending January 4, 2013, the SPX was up 4.6%, the Russell small caps were up 5.6% and the COMP was up 4.9%.

The current equity price action is viewed as a normal retracement prior to resumption of the downtrend, a final battle for direction. Though we may see another slight push higher, probability favors a test of support which is roughly 1440 on SPX, 13250 on the Dow, 850 on the Russell and 3040 on COMP. If support holds, then a sustainable uptrend may be forming. If it cannot hold then resumption of the downtrend is most probable.

Stock Market Overall Solid Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

A week of wild events led first and foremost by the fiscal-cliff drama that literally came down to the final moments. If no deal had been worked out on New Year's Day this market would have taken it on the chin very hard. The Republicans were adamant that they would not accept a deal that wasn't inclusive of major spending cuts. That's exactly what the Democrats didn't offer. Didn't look good, but at the last moment the Republicans gave in stating they were concerned about the state of the markets considering how on the edge our economy is right now. They gave in and the deal was signed into law by President Obama. The market celebrated in a very large way to the tune of 300+ points on the Dow and nearly one hundred points on the Nasdaq. It was quite the day, which also set things up more bullish on the daily charts, but more on that later on in this report.
