Two of the Biggest Problems In the Financial System Will Hit in 2013 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Graham_Summers

This week is options expiration week: the week in which various call and put positions will expire. Wall Street is notorious for using these weeks to gun the markets this way and that in order to insure that the greatest number of puts and calls expire worthless. So expect the market to be even more volatile than usual this week.

Outside of this, the investment world is slowly emerging from its Central Bank policy induced stupor to realize two of our long-standing themes:

Gold, Stocks, Oil and Gas Trend Analysis and Trading Signals / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Gold and gold miner stocks have underperformed in 2012 disappointing most traders. That being said it has traded in a large sideways range since September 2011 and remains stuck in this range as of this week. Investments trading sideways are not my preferred investment of choice because some commodities and stocks for that matter can trade sideways for years before making another bull market rally.

That being said in the last six months gold has started to show life that a new bull market may be starting. 2013 is starting to look as though gold, silver and precious metals miners could lead the market higher if they can break out of their basing patterns. Until we get more bullish price action I am not planning to get long.

The Stocks Bull Market Almost Everyone is Missing / Stock-Markets / Japanese Stock Market

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: A powerful new bull market in stocks is just beginning to take off. Yet virtually no one you know – including seasoned investors – is taking advantage of it.

No, I’m not talking about the U.S. market, which is in the midst of its own three-and-a-half-year upswing. I’m talking about Japan. The Nikkei 225 – Japan’s equivalent of our S&P 500 – has surged 12% over the last eight weeks. In my view, this is just the beginning of a powerful move higher. Yet almost no one is on board. And it’s not hard to see why…

Stock Market Uptrend Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Caldaro

The market experienced its first noticeable pullback, since the SPX 1398 low, this week, and it was only 16 SPX points. After it completed on tuesday the market started making new uptrends highs on thursday/friday. For the week the SPX/DOW gained 0.40%, and the NDX/NAZ gained 0.85%. Asian markets lost 0.7%, European market gained 1.1%, and the DJ World index gained 0.7%. Economic reports for the week were sparse and 6 to 3 to the upside. On the downtick: the trade deficit and export/import prices. On the uptick: consumer credit, wholesale inventories, the budget deficit, the monetary base, the WLEI and weekly jobless claims improved slightly. Next week, options expiration week, we have reports on retail sales, the CPI/PPI, industrial production and the FED’s beige book. Best to your week!

Stock Market Higher Until Proven Otherwise. At Resistance / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Michael_Noonan

We have a price target for the S&P e-Mini: the 1482-1488 area. That area is derived from Point and Figure, [P&F] used to measure market "energy," or the potential target that price can attain in a directional move. The market is already in an area where it can fail. The one caveat to any analysis pertaining to the stock market is an inability to assess market interference, [manipulation] by the central bank/Wall Street firm[s], doing everything possible to defy market gravity, and succeeding.

Friday’s Flat Finish and Musings on a Stock Market Triple Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short. The S&P 500 slipped at the open and hit its intraday low, off 0.31%, at mid-morning. The index zigzagged through the day along a faint upward slope. A rally in the final hour took the 500 briefly into the green before settling for a flat finish — down seven basis points or, if you like percents, you’ve got to calculate the close to three decimal places: -0.005%. For the week, the index gained 0.38%.

Markets Awaiting Test of Support in Determining Future Direction / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Tony_Pallotta

For the week ending January 11, 2013, the SPX was up 0.4%, the Russell small caps were up .2% and the COMP was up 0.8%.

We remain waiting for a test of model support in determining future market direction. Support can be tested in one of two ways, through a pullback or sideways price consolidation. Whichever method the market chooses, support will be tested. And it is at that test of support where the market will show whether a long will trigger or resumption of the previous downtrend.

Stock Market Charts the Bears Have Been Waiting For Have Arrived / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Money_Morning

Ben Gersten writes: As the bull market tries to enter its fifth year, many are wondering if it still has legs - but a handful of stock market charts warn there's high risk of a coming sell off.

In fact, a recent report from Credit Suisse Group AG (NYSE ADR: CS) outlined 10 technical factors that show the market is at its most risk-on level since just before the stock market crash that began in 2007's third quarter.

Stock Market Distribution Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Christopher_Quigley

Ireland Lobbies to Have Europe Share Banking Risk:

Ireland took over the presidency of the European Union on January 2013 for six months. Prime Minister Enda Kenny is thus in a unique position to try to find a solution to the banking crisis that has bedeviled Ireland since 2008. However, the job at hand is not going to be an easy one as reported by Christoph Pauley of Spiegel Online on the 7th. January:

"Ireland's reform policies have been widely praised for helping it emerge from the crisis, but the truth is bleaker. If the government fails to get European taxpayers to assume some of the risk of its ailing banking sector, the country could soon require another bailout.

Stock Market Lateral....Yawn...Still Nothing Bearish.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Same old thing, folks. I could stop the newsletter right here, because, in truth, there's not much to say or add to what we already know. The market had a huge two-day move up off the fiscal-cliff settlement, and now it's digesting that move by forming a handle that may last a lot longer than anyone would like it. It normally takes time to digest large moves whether it's up or down so to expect another large move up from here at this moment in time is probably wishing for something that's not coming. There is no way to know how long the handle will last, but a few weeks is usually the minimal amount of time needed.

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.

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

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.
