Stock Market Hangs Tough....Sells A Drop.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

You know how bull markets work. They get a bid and after getting very overbought the prevailing view is that it has to have a big pullback. The masses wait for it, but it doesn't come on their time. Of course, the pullback comes when the masses get involved. The market is overbought on the short-term charts to be sure, but they can stay that way when key sectors have taken out critical resistance, such as we have witnessed from the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100. The S&P 500 took out important horizontal resistance when it closed above 1897, while the Nasdaq 100 took out key resistance when it cleared the 50-day exponential moving average. It has continued to run once cleared, thus, the market has a bid again whenever it tries to sell.

Everything You Think You Own Has Been Borrowed / Stock-Markets / Global Debt Crisis 2014

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Let’s take another look at debt. We’ve probably all gotten so used to huge debt numbers that we’re losing sight of what they actually mean. In the following article, Tyler Durden made me rethink both the debt issue and the perverse consequences of 7 years of zero interest policies (ZIRP) and/or ultra low interest rates. The destruction to society is far greater than anyone seems to be willing to let on. But that doesn’t make it any less real. Here goes:

Why FOMO Is Every Stock Investor’s Worst Enemy / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Dan Steinhart, Managing Editor, The Casey Report

FOMO.

I heard this acronym on a podcast last week. Having no clue what it meant, I consulted Google.

Turns out it stands for “Fear of Missing Out.” Kids use it to describe their anxiety about missing a social event that all of their friends are attending.

Stock Market Seeking New Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are in their down phases, and if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over), there will be another steep decline into late 2014. However, the Fed policy of keeping interest rates low has severely curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - Probably tracing out an ending diagonal pattern.

Strategic Investment - A Bubble In Complacency / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: John_Mauldin

Notes from SIC 2014

I and many others are still trying to digest the massive amount of useful and original information that was offered at last week’s Strategic Investment Conference. In this week’s letter I want to recap some of what I learned but do so in a little different manner. I find it quite instructive to listen to and read what other people have to say about their takeaways from the conference. I have come across several very good summaries and reviews that I am going to excerpt rather liberally, along with sharing some of my own thoughts.

Stock Market Are You Ready? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: WavePatternTraders

SPX
In my last article I wrote that we were looking for more upside, the SPY and ES are the first markets to confirm the upside move we have been expecting, although the SPX has yet to confirm a new all time high, the DAX and DOW are likely to confirm the move that we have seen on the ES and SPY. Both the DAX and DOW have similar patterns to the SPX but they need a bit more upside, which I think will be seen this coming week.

Stock Market Near All Time Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

The week started with a positive Monday, sold off on Tuesday, then ended within one point of the SPX 1902 all time high. The SPX/DOW were +0.95%, the NDX/NAZ were +2.40%, and the DJ World was +0.90%. On the economic front positive reports outpaced the negative 5 to 1. On the uptick: existing/new home sales, leading indicators, the WLEI and the M1-multipler. On the downtick: weekly jobless claims rose. Next week, holiday shortened by Monday’s Memorial Day, we get the second estimate for Q1 GDP, Personal income/spending and the Chicago PMI.

Indian Stocks: You Want a REAL Opportunity? Know WHEN to Look for It / Stock-Markets / India

By: EWI

Why the Nifty and many other emerging market stocks screamed "Buy!" three months ago

From Elliott Wave International's February Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast (published Feb. 7):

...Bloomberg reports that "more than $7 billion flowed from ETFs investing in developing-nation assets in January, the most since the securities were created." Such massive selling...supports our view that emerging markets are ending large-degree three-wave declines.

Are Some Proven Stock Market Investment Strategies Too Simple To Accept? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Sy_Harding

As goes January so goes the year. Avoid the first two years of the Four-Year Presidential Cycle. Buy in the fall of the 2nd year of the presidential cycle and hold through to the end of the third year. Sell in May and re-enter in October.

Those are all strategies proven to out-perform the market over the long-term. Don’t take my word for it. But also don’t blame the messenger. I am only reporting what hundreds of exhaustive academic and independent studies have clearly shown since forever.

SPX Cycle Top - End of an Era? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX is up against its Cycle Top resistance and appears to have completed its retracement. It may be time for a Dynamic Sell Signal. The current high of 1899.05 is still short of the May 13 high of 1902.17. The pattern does not support a further rally.

Energy Stocks No Bear Market Refuge / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Zeal_LLC

The lofty US stock markets have stalled out, looking more and more top-heavy with each passing day.  This is spawning growing unease among prudent investors, who sense the long-overdue major selloff is nearing.  Many are seeking shelter in sectors they hope will weather the storm.  And energy stocks, with their lower valuations, are a leading one.  Unfortunately history proves they too offer no refuge in stock bears.

The stock markets are topping, essentially grinding sideways near nominal record highs for the better part of 3 months now.  The American S&P 500 benchmark stock index is now trading at incredibly high valuations between 23x to 26x trailing earnings, dangerously expensive.  And after rocketing 180.5% higher over 5.2 years, this truly extraordinary bull market stocks have enjoyed is getting ominously long in the tooth.

Money and Growth / Stock-Markets / Fiat Currency

By: Alasdair_Macleod

The most common of all misconceptions today is that a weakening currency is fundamental to a healthy economy, or put another way, a strong currency is economically destructive. For decades this has been the fundamental belief of mainstream economists and the mainspring behind government policy. Even Switzerland, widely regarded as the leading exponent of non-interventionism, intervenes to keep the franc from rising against the euro.

Stock Market 4-6% Pullback in S&P 500 Possible Soon / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Submissions

Brad Gudgeon writes: The stock market appears to be on the verge of a 4-6% pullback. All the cycles, wave analysis, technical analysis, sentiment and pattern analysis I analyze point to a quick downdraft over the coming days into early June. 

As of this writing on Thursday, May 22, 2014, the S&P 500 appears to want to make a nominal new high above the old high of 1902.  We could make that high on Friday and sell-off easily.

How Bad Will the 60-year Kress Cycle Bottom Be? / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Clif_Droke

One of the questions most commonly asked by investors is why the economy has been so sluggish in recent years despite the Fed’s efforts at stimulating it?

This question was recently asked of former Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner by Time magazine. His answer was that Americans are still “still living with the scars” of the credit crisis, implying that the reason for the slow pace of recovery is more psychological than anything. His answer is unsatisfactory, however, since it obscures the deeper reason behind the slow growth era of the last few years.

Stock Market Sour Surprise / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Shah Gilani writes: On Monday, I explained why, when you’re considering investment ideas, you should always keep the bond market in mind. That’s because stocks and bonds are inextricably interconnected.

They’re inextricably interconnected because interest rates matter.

When expected relationships between stocks and bonds (interest rates) diverge, therefore, it’s important to take notice, try to understand what is happening, and consider what the divergences could portend for both stocks and bonds.

Briefly: In our opinion speculative long positions are still favored (with stop-loss at 1,850, S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is still bullish, and our short-term outlook remains neutral:

Intraday (next 24 hours) outlook: bullish
Short-term (next 1-2 weeks) outlook: neutral
Medium-term (next 1-3 months) outlook: neutral
Long-term outlook (next year): bullish

Stock Market Chartology Mania / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Rambus_Chartology

First I want to acknowledge how frustrating the markets have been over the last several months for most of you. There has been no clear cut trend in which one can just take a position and not get caught up in the chopping action the markets have been giving us. As I have said in the past the hardest part of trading is to get your initial position to stick before your sell/stop gets hit. If your a bear it’s two steps down and one step up and if your a bull it’s two steps forward and one step back. It’s that one step after you take your initial position that usually gets you if you don’t buy the exact high or low.

Marc Lichtenfeld writes: If you want a great stock to invest in, you should buy Crystal Ball Inc. (NYSE: BS) because it appears that in the past few weeks everyone on Wall Street is using one and they're all saying there is a big correction coming.

For the record, if you didn't get the joke, there is no stock called Crystal Ball Inc. I don't want any angry emails saying you couldn't find the stock.

Over the past five years, our average gain is 50%.

We've made such great gains by ignoring "doom and gloom" pessimists who would have you believe we're about to enter another depression. Instead, we've focused on facts, owned U.S. stocks, and we've made huge gains.

Fractional-Reserve Banking: From Goldsmiths To Hedge Funds To…Chaos / Stock-Markets / Fiat Currency

By: John_Rubino

Banking didn’t start out as a reckless, parasitical plaything of a moneyed and politically-connected aristocracy. In the beginning, in fact, bankers weren’t even bankers. They were jewelers and goldsmiths who had to maintain their inventory with vaults, guards etc., and offered storage services to others with valuables to protect. So the original banks were, in effect, very safe warehouses.
