S&P500 Above 1350 Again / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCourtesy of Doug Short writes: The S&P 500 surged at the open, presumably in celebration of the Greek parliament’s voting in favor of an additional package of austerity measures. The opening advance took the index above the 1350, a level it couldn’t maintain during the morning hours, but after an early lunch, the 1350 level held, and the index closed at 1351.77 for a 0.68% gain. Last Thursday the index had its first close above 1350 since the selloff from its interim high last spring. The index is up 7.49% year-to-date and is a mere 0.97% below its interim high at the end of April 2011.

There's Value Investing in Russia's Future / Stock-Markets / Russia

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Americans ponder the merits of Obama vs. Gingrich, Paul, Romney or Santorum, Russia will be electing its own president on March 4.

Perhaps we should say "re-electing" since it's almost certain former president and current prime minster Vladimir Putin will be elected. While protests and vocal opposition likely won't prevent Putin's presidential return, they have forced some interesting changes to the political climate and we've observed some positive changes in Russia's investment landscape.

What’s Wrong With China’s Stock Market? / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Sy_Harding

It wasn't just the U.S. and Europe that took on massive debt loads to provide the extraordinary global stimulus efforts that prevented the 2008 financial meltdown from morphing into the next 'Great Depression'. China also provided massive stimulus to its economy, and in the process is thought to have taken on much more debt than it has revealed.

SP500 Deflated by Gold / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jesse

Much of the recent rally, that nominally looks like a straight shot higher is really due to the monetization going on in the US and Europe.

Such distribution of money through asset bubbles can provide the appearance of vitality, but it is not self-sustaining.

Why Does The Stock Market Keep Rising? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: LongWave

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis gigantic flood of extremely inexpensive high-powered money does have a major impact, not in the real economy, but in the liquid investment markets. 

 

Free money sets a very low hurdle for a short-term investment and as long as the transaction has decent liquidity, why not do the trade.  As a result, almost every equity, commodity, and credit market is moving higher. 

 

High beta currencies are moving higher as well, as risk is clearly on the front foot.  This positive mood began at the start of October, a bit more than a week after Bernanke announced the start of ‘Operation Twist,’ a subtle way to improve the profits of the banks and increase the risk of the Fed without expanding its balance sheet.

The Return of Stock Market Volatility / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo say that complacency has reigned in the last few months is an understatement. Volatility as measured by the CBOE Volatility Index (VIX) has fallen 60% since October and 20% since the start of 2012.

To put into context just how much volatility has fallen since the latest rally kicked off in October, the 10-year chart of the S&P 100 Volatility Index (VXO) is shown below. The VXO is an excellent frame of reference for the absence of widespread fear in this market in recent months. As you can see, volatility is approaching historically low levels not seen since before the credit crisis began.

Stock Market Uptrend Nearing a Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US market was fairly quiet this week while trading in a narrow SPX 1336-1354 range. It did manage to reach marginal new uptrend highs on three of the days, but ended the week mixed. For the week the SPX/DOW were -0.35%, and the NDX/NAZ were mixed. Asian markets gained 0.3%, European markets lost 0.9%, and the DJ World index was -0.3%. Economic reports for the week were light, with results mixed. On the uptick: wholesale inventories, the monetary base, the WLEI, plus the budget deficit and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: consumer credit, the M1 multiplier, the trade deficit, and consumer sentiment. Next week, options expiration week, we’ll get reports on retail sales, industrial production, the CPI/PPI and the FOMC minutes.

Finally Some Selling From Extremes Of Overbought..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNot a single soul should be shocked by the fact that we sold off some today. The market had been extremely overbought for quite some time. The Nasdaq, and small caps, had gotten absurdly overbought on their daily RSI's, with readings at 80 plus. That's basically unheard of, folks. It's been a long time between visits to this territory for any part of the market. It makes sense that it would happen in froth-land, otherwise known as the technology world of the Nasdaq. Froth leads when things get silly to the upside for our stock market. People want to participate in those rapid moving high beta stocks when the market is rising, because they want to capture as much upside as humanly possible. Get me those points. Don't give me those slower moving safer stocks. Give me beta or give me.....!

Stock Market Friday Profit Taking / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCourtesy of Doug Short writes: The S&P 500 dropped at the open and hit a mid-morning low of -1.08%. The index then oscillated across a six-point range and closed the day near the range high for loss of 0.69% and a fractional loss of 0.17% for the week. It was, in fact, the first negative weekly close of 2012 after five consecutive weekly gains. The index is up 6.76% year-to-date and is 1.56% below its interim high at the end of April 2011.

Should Stock Market Investors Worry About February’s Reputation? / Stock-Markets / Seasonal Trends

By: Sy_Harding

Most investors are aware of the market’s various seasonal patterns.

In the Four-Year Presidential Cycle the market has a strong tendency to be positive in the last two years of each Presidential term. Within each year it tends to make most of its gains in its annual favorable season between October and May. Shorter term, it tends to be positive in the few days surrounding the end of each month.

Stock Market Upleg Has Room to Run / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US stock markets have been on fire lately, still marching higher even after the S&P 500 powered to its best January in 15 years.  Doubted from its very birth, this latest stock-market upleg continues to inexorably climb the proverbial Wall of Worry.  But while bears keep on arguing for its imminent demise, today’s upleg actually still has plenty of room to run higher.  Despite the naysayers, it isn’t too late to buy in yet.

Superb Investor Opportunities Created by 3 False Premises / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“In one of the most shamefully disingenuous reports we’ve seen in years, the US Labor Department released the latest employment figures on Friday showing that the headline US unemployment rate had fallen to 8.3%.

“Champagne and sound bites were pre-positioned in Washington as the self-congratulatory praise flowed like the bubbly. President Obama, beaming like he’d just caught the winning touchdown pass, told the American people on Sunday that he ‘deserved’ a second term.

We were talking about the next big emerging market to bloom in Asia. It may surprise you, but it is one heck of a story... and opportunity. It's also the subject of my upcoming book, World Right Side Up. The country I'm talking about is Myanmar (or Burma, as most people still seem to call it).

Money Market Funds Are in the Fight of Their Lives / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: Money market funds aren't exactly the safe-haven investments they're cracked up to be.

In September 2008, when Lehman Brothers failed, money market investors fled funds in droves, exposing investors and capital markets across the globe to huge systemic risks.

Now, to better safeguard investors and prevent the commercial paper market from shutting down in future crises, SEC chairwoman Mary Schapiro is proposing to re-make the money market mutual fund industry in the image of banks.

Stock Market Hanging Very Tough / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

You have to hand it to the bulls as they just refuse to give up the gains in this market. For now, anyway. You have to wonder how long they can hold things up this well into very overbought conditions on the daily index charts. The market tried a few times to sell things down, but it refused to cave in. The folks on the side lines that have missed a lot of this move are anxious to get in on any weakness, thus, the bears are having a rough time keeping things down. It'll happen at some point for the bears. It's impossible to time it, because the buy-the-dip mentality is still on.
