Stock Market All Time Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Caldaro

The market opened the week higher, tried to break out above SPX 1775, pulled back to 1761 Wednesday morning, then made all time new highs for the rest of the week. For the week the SPX/DOW were +1.45%, the NDX/NAZ were +1.70%, and the DJ World index was +1.5%. On the economic front negative reports out numbered positive ones 7 to 4. On the uptick: wholesale inventories, the monetary base, the WLEI and the Treasury deficit improved. On the downtick: export/import prices, the NY FED, industrial production, capacity utilization, plus both the trade deficit and weekly jobless claims were higher. Next week we get a look at the Philly FED, CPI/PPI, Retail sales and the FOMC minutes.

Yet Another Stock Market All-Time High / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The S&P 500 gained 0.42% today, closing its sixth consecutive week of gains at yet another all-time high. Janet Yellen support for dovish monetary policy was the key driver of this week’s market optimism — first with her prepared statement and then with the testimony itself. Meanwhile, today’s economic data was a bit on the weak side: Empire State Manufacturing showed contraction with the weakest numbers since January and the Fed’s report on October Industrial Production came in below expectations. But the market is more focused on the odds of more Fed stimulus, which weak economic data supports.

Technical Evidence Dow's Bew high is Not a Stock Market Breakout / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Brian_Bloom

Complacency does not equal buying hysteria

There’s too much “loose talk” that the public is going to pile into the market for the third, and final, blow-off phase.

The first chart below (bigcharts.com) shows that, since August 2011, the index has been rising on falling volume. Over a two year period (+- 700 days) at an average daily volume (visually) of around 150 million, (700 X 150 million =) 105 billion shares changed hands. By contrast, OBV has risen from around 2.5 billion to 7.5 billion = 5 billion.

Stock Market Status Quo....More Red Flags.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Nothing has changed. After trading sideways for three weeks and refusing to really fall with any force, the market heated back up this week with some decent gains, basically across the board. The bulls were bored not having gains for a few weeks, thus, they decided it was time, once again, to get moving, since the bears were unable to do anything of significance for that period of time prior. No great blow up and out, but there was one very strong day this week, which also included your typical grind higher most of the other days. Classic bull-market action for sure. Spend some time calming things down a bit, and then rock things up again once oscillators unwound some on the key daily-index charts.

Why Still Only A Cyclical Stocks Bull Market Within Long-Term Secular Bear / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Sy_Harding

In 1999 Warren Buffett famously warned that “The next 17 years will be quite unlike the last 17 years. It might not look much better than the dismal 1965-1982 period.”

He was referring to the market’s history of cycling between long-term ‘secular’ bull and ‘secular’ bear markets, as it has done for at least 113 years.

Investors Profit and Protect from The Great Race to Debase / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: DeepCaster_LLC

"’I would like to see the truth come out of these confirmation hearings to discuss how completely clueless Janet Yellen was during the housing bubble,’ Schiff suggests by way of warming to the topic. Not only did Yellen fail to see the crash coming, but she was dismissive of the dangers related to our over-leveraged housing economy even as Schiff himself was doing his best to alert the public. ‘She was wrong about everything in the past and I think she will continue to be wrong once she's chairwoman.’

“Schiff says it is Yellen's faith in the fed's ability to cure what ails the economy that will prove to be America's undoing. Having learned nothing from the crisis Yellen will continue to print money until the long-anticipated currency crisis arrives and ‘brings an end to the madness,’ he argues.

Stock Market SPX Topping Valuations / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Zeal_LLC

2013’s incredible stock-market melt-up persisted this week, with the flagship American stock indexes surging to fresh record highs.  The euphoric bulls continue to claim today’s lofty stock prices are justified by reasonable valuations.  But nothing could be farther from the truth.  Stocks are actually very expensive these days, with high valuations seen at major bull-market toppings.  This makes for super-risky markets.

Successful investing demands buying low then selling high, so the price paid for any stock is absolutely critical to its ultimate return.  Paying too much, buying even a great company’s stock when it is too expensive, virtually assures poor future gains at best.  And overpaying when a bull market happens to be topping will lead to severe losses, as subsequent bears cut in half even the mightiest blue-chip stocks.

Stock Markets Set Another All-Time High - Thank You, Janet Yellen! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The S&P 500 posted another all-time high with a closing gain of 0.48%. The popular financial press (e.g., CNBC, Bloomberg and Reuters) attributes the market’s merry mood to Janet Yellen’s congressional testimony before the Senate Banking Committee, where she has underscored her support for the Fed’s policy of Quantitative Easing.

Meanwhile, key segments of the real economy, represented by the likes of Cisco (down 13% after revenue warning) and Wal-Mart (forecasting a disappointing profit for the holiday season), are sending less happy signals.

VIX Appears Finished, is the SPX Too? Black Friday? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Earlier I suggested that the SPX would probably stay glued to the top at least throughout the morning.  The fact is, it lasted all day.  The head fake usually stops at or very near the Cycle Top.  In this case, it turned 5 waves into 9 waves through the extension of the rally.

Tomorrow is day 262 in a very mature Master Cycle and a Cycle Pivot day, to boot.  The last time this happened was in July 21, 2011, when the indexes peaked, then proceeded to decline impulsively for 19 calendar days (12.9 market days).  A similar decline starting tomorrow would go to December 3.

QE - Fed Official Admits Failure / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Clif_Droke

Apologies are becoming increasingly common these days. From the ubiquitous “Twitter apologies” of celebrities to the mea culpas of scandalized politicians, the public has become used to hearing them on a daily basis. It came as a surprise, however, when a former Federal Reserve official apologized for the part he played in the ultra-loose monetary policy known as QE.

“Confessions of a Quantitative Easer,” the Wall Street Journal published the public apology by former Fed official Andrew Huszar. The gist of the piece can be summarized in Huszar’s words: “We went on a bond-buying spree that was supposed to help Main Street. Instead, it was a feast for Wall Street.”

Deflation, A Stock Market Crash And Then Christmas / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Don't get me wrong, I'm not saying things will happen in this order and timeframe. Just that they're going to if central banks and treasury departments don't up the ante. But they will. The question becomes more important now whether it'll be enough to continue keeping their - presumed - demons at bay. They can't go on forever. You can inflate asset price bubbles only so much. And then people will lose faith. So the order and timeframe is definitely an option.

Deflation is already here. Everyone's talking about lower inflation numbers than expected everywhere, but prices have been pushed up artificially in so many ways and in so many places that, even given the fact that they all ignore what inflation really is, it's getting profoundly absurd. Ironically, a few interesting lines this week came from an unexpected corner, the Telegraph editorial staff:

Why I’m Still Skeptical on Key Stock Stock Market Indices / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

Mohammad Zulfiqar writes: The companies on key stock indices are showing very troubling trends, which can cause them to slide lower and generate losses in investors’ portfolios. Don’t just look at the number on the surface.

As of November 8, 446 companies on the S&P 500 have reported their corporate earnings and 73% of them were able to show earnings above estimates. The corporate earnings growth rate was 3.4%. (Source: “Earnings Insight,” FactSet web site, November 8, 2013.)

Sasha Cekerevac writes: To some people in the mainstream media, last week’s advance estimate on U.S. gross domestic product (GDP) growth was seen as a positive surprise.

According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, the advance estimate on U.S. GDP growth for the third quarter of 2013 was an annual rate of 2.8%. In the second quarter, real GDP growth was 2.5%. (Source: U.S. Department of Commerce, November 7, 2013.)

Too Many Stock Market Dummies are Getting Rich... Huge Top Forming / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Clive_Maund

We know that the Fed and other Central Banks are printing money like there's no tomorrow to stop the fragile system from imploding, but the Little Guy is not seeing any benefit from it, instead the banks and elites are making even more money out of that which is spirited into existence and then handed to them on a platter by driving asset prices higher and higher. The Little Guy instead gets stuck with the bill as he becomes a victim of the inflation that results.

Stock Market Wednesday Worries – Fed Speak Not Helping? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Good golly, what a mess!

As you can see from Dave Fry's S&P chart, even yesterday's PATHETIC volume was too much for the bulls to maintain the illusion of strength. What little volume there was had 50% more decliners than advancers on the NYSE, led lower by energy stocks (as we expected) as oil collapses below that $95 line (as we expected).

When Inflation Strikes Back / Stock-Markets / Inflation

By: Clif_Droke

Is there such thing as too little inflation? To listen to some economists the answer is an emphatic “no!” Fed chief Ben Bernanke certainly doesn’t believe in the concept of low inflation. Neither does ECB president Mari Draghi. But the question must be asked: with so much official opposition to low inflation, how will America’s middle class ever fully recover from its current malaise?

Bankrupting America When Leverage Fails - The Policies of Insolvency / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Ty_Andros

Rarely, if ever, have I seen this level of INSANITY UNFOLDING in over 30 years watching and analyzing GLOBAL macroeconomics, politics and markets. To say it is frightening is to understate the combustible nature of the world economy and its ability to generate future growth and prosperity.

It can't and won't grow without massive reform of governments and their policies, which contrary to public opinion are deepening this MAN-MADE disaster. Conversely, times of great danger and risk offer the most outstanding investment opportunities if you can SEE IT and prepare yourself properly.

Stock Market Meandering Along.....No Big Sellers Yet...... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Since I wrote Friday's letter, we have had one single day of trading. That was today. So what great wisdom can I impart on you that's different from Friday. To be blunt, there is none other than to repeat what we already know to be true. We have two great forces at work against each other, and the market behaved in perfect step with that reality today. The Fed will continue to print seemingly forever, as he is very unhappy thus far with the economic recovery, if left to its own devices. He feels the need to throw endless dollars at the economy, while keeping short-term rates at zero. He doesn't see commodity inflation, so why not keep it going for now, until he does. Then it'll be Janet Yellen's problem anyway, and he can blame it on her. He's gone in January, so he will likely say little when he speaks Wednesday evening.
