Groundhog Day Meets the Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: WavePatternTraders

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother day, another week passed and it feels like we are all living a dream and playing the role Bill Murray did in the movie Groundhog Day. Virtually the past week felt like February 2nd.

Still there were some trades around for those traders that were keeping in touch with the markets. The obvious ones were gold and silver.

DOW Ending Diagonal Pattern, Stock Market to Head Sharply Lower / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Dan_Stinson

DOW Short Term Forecast Update

Many investors have been frustrated with the choppy action on the DOW, so we have provided a chart to illustrate our forecast on the expected price action. This corrective choppy action is an ending diagonal pattern which is a terminal pattern. We should see further downside below the lower trendline with a a sharp decline to at least the starting point of the ED pattern at 12550. We should expect to see a brief rally at this level before further downside.

Stock Market Dismisses Doom and Points to the Road to Economic Recovery / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Doug_Wakefield

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the last 11 weeks, investors have enjoyed a continuing rising trend in equity markets. If the news pointed to rising tensions in the Middle East, higher cost at the gas pump, debt levels around the world that nations could not sustain, they were all dismissed. The road to "recovery" has spoken in "the markets".

Why is the Financial World So Messed Up? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy is the financial world so messed up? Because it’s run by Central Bankers. And those folks view money very differently from the businesspeople who actually create businesses, jobs, and wealth.

For your average Central Banker, the professional relationship between money and risk is a distant one. This has much to do with the fact that your average Central Banker is an academic, someone whose income has been fixed based on his or her status at a particular academic institution (tenure vs. non-tenured).

Will the Stock Market Ever Correct / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThat seems to be the question that everyone has been asking themselves for two months now. Analysts have been trying to pick a top in this market for weeks. All the while I've been telling, actually begging, people not to sell short. Until the dollar puts in an intermediate bottom there is just little chance that the stock market is going to suffer any meaningful correction.

There was the possibility that occurred in early February as the dollar rallied enough to form a weekly swing. However that rally quickly failed and rolled over into another left translated cycle. That gave the market enough impetus to push through the July and May 2011 highs.

Stock Market Breadth Aligns With Pullback Scenario / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYesterday, we noted some bad news would probably be needed to tip the scales in this market. This morning’s economic data fits the “bad news” bill. From Reuters:

New orders for long-lasting manufactured goods fell in January by the most in three years as demand slumped across the board, suggesting the economy started the year on weaker footing than expected. Durable goods orders dropped 4.0 percent, the biggest decline since January 2009 when the country was still mired in a deep recession, according to Commerce Department data on Tuesday.

MF Global Crime, Comedy and the Cover-Up / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Janet_Tavakoli

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMF Global's October 2011 bankruptcy was the eighth largest bankruptcy by assets in the United States. James Giddens, the bankruptcy trustee, issued a press release on February 6 stating that his investigation found that money from customer accounts that was supposed to be segregated was improperly used to fund MF Global's daily activities. Improper transfers of customer money occurred regularly in amounts under $50 million before MF Global's bankruptcy. MF Global wasn't caught, because it put the money back before customers knew it was missing.

Gold Stocks and U.S. Dollar What To Expect Next / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis morning we are seeing the US Dollar index move higher retesting a short term breakdown resistance level. What this means is that the dollar fell below support and is not slowing drifting back up to test the breakdown level. As we all know once a support level is broken it then becomes resistance. So if that holds true with the current move in the dollar we should see stocks and commodities find a short term bottom and continue higher today or tomorrow from the looks of things.

Stock Market Short-term Top Forming / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

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 steep correction of 2007-2009 will have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 120-yr cycle.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The intermediate uptrend is still intact, but a short-term top is forming.

2012 & Beyond: Pain at the Pump is Here to Stay, But it Won't Doom the Economy / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCetin Hakimoglu writes: In  April 29, 2011 I wrote an article titled "Dyseconomics: The New Macro Econ and The Greatest Economic Boom Ever" which predicts a huge bull market combined with surging living expenses, surging commodity prices and counterintuitively tame bond market inflation. Immediatly thereafter, we entered a steep correection on European debt fears, but with the dow within striking distance of 13000, oil $109 and gas approaching $4/gallon and treasuries still remarkably strong, the original premise of Dyseconomics remains unchanged.

The Irrelevant Dow Industrials Stock Index? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Andy_Sutton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the ‘breaking news’ on Tuesday morning being the fact that the Dow Jones Industrials had broken 13,000 for the first time since 2008, the immediate spin from the majority of the mainstream press revolved around ‘see, its all better now’. Their evidence for this ridiculous statement? The performance of 30 stocks and an index that changes more than a flip-flopping politician during campaign season.

Stock Market Uptrend Topping / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother quiet week in the US equity market as the entire range for the week was between SPX 1352 and 1369. While the SPX did not make a new print high, above 1371, it did make a new closing high for the bull market. Now all four major US indices are in new bull market territory. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.3%, and the NDX/NAZ were +0.6%. Asian markets gained 0.4%, European markets lost 0.2%, and the DJ World index was +0.9%. On the economic front it was a quiet mixed week. On the uptick: consumer sentiment, new home sales, the WLEI, and the monetary base made a new high. On the downtick: existing home sales, FHFA housing prices, the M1 multiplier, and weekly jobless claims rose. Next week we’ll get a look at the first revision of Q4 GDP, the FED’s beige book, Case-Shiller and PCE prices. Best to your weekend and week!

Financial Markets 2012: Bombs... er Government Bonds, Fiat Currencies and Gold / Stock-Markets / Global Debt Crisis 2012

By: Ty_Andros

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe UNFOLDING destruction of the developed world's economies and financial/currency systems continues apace. Public servants are trying to defy Mother Nature with the stroke of a pen; she will not yield to this. Radical Marxist POLITICAL solutions to practical problems are at the end of their collective ropes (double entendre intended). You CANNOT store wealth in paper, PERIOD. Those who do will get what they deserve: NOTHING. It has been and will be printed endlessly from this point forward as Socialist government policies have destroyed wealth creation and substituted Ponzi asset-backed economies in their place. Now those economic models have reached their COLLECTIVE endpoints.

Stock Market Another Week Of Solid Action...And At Overbought...Risk Increasing... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Sy_Harding

Not that the market did very much this week. It did very little. However, it did hold well considering how long the daily RSI's on many of the major index charts have been overbought. 70 RSI's have been normal behavior for several weeks. They went a few moments below from time to time, but overall the market has been staying overbought. Because of this reality, the majority of people are starting to act as if the market is due for a stronger pullback, but I'll cover more on that in a bit. With a market this overbought for this long, it makes sense that each day is losing its volatility as the VIX is now well below 20 again. Things can be awfully boring with a VIX well under 20. So little movement.
