Run, Ride or Buy? What Should Stock Market Investors Do? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Frank_Holmes

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere’s an old contrarian investing maxim from Baron Rothschild that says “the time to buy is when there’s blood in the streets, even if the blood is your own.” The idea is that the best investors strategize when others panic, allowing them to buy stocks on “sale.” The legend of Warren Buffett was built on this philosophy during the market turmoil of the mid-1970s.

Where Oh Where Are The Safe Havens From Yesteryear? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Jeb_Handwerger

Gold Stock Trades (GST) is witnessing the resumption of the long term uptrend in gold(GLD) and silver(SLV) bullion and precious metals mining stocks(GDX). Along the way there have been many negative voices that were counseling throwing in the towel and moving into the U.S. dollar and long term treasuries. We see no underlying fundamental reasons and find that the safe havens of yesteryear are falling by the wayside. A few months ago Gold Stock Trades alerted readers that investors are being prepared for further accommodative moves by the Federal Reserve Board.

Why Is the Stock Market Plunging? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Robert_Murphy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors the world over are still reeling from last Thursday's massive plunge in the US equity markets, in which the major indices all gave up more than 4 percent. It was the worst day for the US stock market since December 2008.

None of this should surprise those conversant with Austrian economics. The "fundamentals" of the economy have been and remain awful because the government and Federal Reserve are consistently doing the wrong things. The apparent recovery, fueled by Bernanke's sheer money creation, has been bogus all along.

Here Comes Stock Market 2008.2: My 5 Canaries / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: JD_Rosendahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI’ve been telling friends and family the past couple of months that 2008.2 is coming, and it may have started with the recent sell off in the stock market.

I have 5 things (Canaries) that I’m listening to too, to let me know we are in serious economic trouble, where the economy and stock market could have another period like 2008 or worse.

Sometimes Doing Nothing is Doing Something, How to Find the Stock Market Bottom / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: George_Maniere

Yesterday I had a dozen readers write to me asking if we should we be buying into the market now or commenting on what great bargain prices these stocks are selling for. I have written many times that "sometimes doing nothing is doing something". I told them that the hardest thing to do when the market sells off 634 points is to do nothing. I will explain why.

S&P's Ill-Advised Downgrade Ushers in Stock Market Buying Opportunities / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKent Moors writes: A number of years ago, Standard & Poor's (S&P) gave me a desk in one of their offices on Wall Street. In those days, I was providing energy analysis for a short-lived S&P publication called Emerging Global Markets.

I never felt comfortable in that office. Actually, whenever possible, I avoided going there.

U.S. Debt Downgrade Impact, Stock Market Are We There Yet? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe question we will ask ourselves in 20 years is, “Where were you when they downgraded the US and the Fed?” This week’s Outside the Box is from David Rosenberg. He has made his letter public and graciously given me permission (at 34,000 feet ) to send it to you.

I thought about writing an immediate response to this weekend’s events but decided to wait and meditate on what has transpired. Clearly, we are at the beginning of the Endgame. And that saddens me. The events of the weekend were hotly discussed at the Shadow Fed meeting in Maine. My youngest son, Trey, was paying attention this year. Last night he said, “Dad, it is good for you that you are right with your book, but I don’t think it’s good for the rest of us.” Out of the mouths of babes.

The Elusive Abyss, Debt Crisis and Gold Bull Far From Over / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFinancial markets are currently in a panic, bonds spiked last week (this continues at the moment), cash deposit levels up sharply according to BNY Mellon, US debt downgraded by Standard and Poor's from AAA to AA+ and equities crashing. The Chinese rating agency Dagong Global Credit Rating Co. have now lowered their rating on the US debt from A+ to A after lowering their previous US rating from AA to A+ in November 2010. All agencies are warning us that they are on "negative" in their forward view of their respective US ratings.

Where Is The Stock Market Headed? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"He observed that human emotions collectively had major impacts on the movement of stock prices and Markets in general, ultimately creating patterns that kept repeating." - From a book on Jesse Livermore's trading style.

Markets at major inflection points are more a function of investor psychology and less technicals and or macro data. The struggle between bull and bear, greed and fear will always play a major role in the success and failure of investors. As Jesse Livermore discusses these struggles are a reflection of human emotions and since human emotion never changes they leave patterns that are repeated.

Stock Market Collapse Continues..... / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe market doesn't fool around when it gets angry. It's certainly a reminder of how things are going around the world both fundamentally and politically. How often do we see a 512 point down day on the Dow, 136 on the Nasdaq, and 60, on the S&P 500 get followed up in a week by numbers as bad, or worse, on some indexes! Not very often in your lifetime. It was an amazing follow-up for sure. We saw the Dow lose 634 points today. The Nasdaq joined the party with losses of an astonishing 174 points, while the S&P 500 turned in a head-turning loss of 80 points. Small rallies along the way.

What's Next For the Stock Market? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThree weeks ago I began urging members of my service to reduce risk and raise cash. I pounded the table incessantly for the past two weeks to continue to raise cash and reduce risk. I have not issued a trade alert to members in over 3 weeks, but by acknowledging risk ahead of the debt ceiling debate I was able to sidestep one of the worst weeks in U.S. financial markets since 2008.

The Stock Market SP500 Index Could Bottom at 1096-1100 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: David_Banister

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe markets bottomed last Friday at 1168 roughly on the SP 500, then violently reversed with a 47 point rally to 1215.  I had forecasted a likely short term bottom at 1176/1188 ranges with a possible 60 point rally coming.  With that said, I didn’t think it would all happen in nearly 1 trading day.

Stock Market Recovered in 1994, 1998, and 2004 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOur July 27 article, How Will A Downgrade of U.S. Debt Impact Stock and Bond Prices?, is obviously more relevant now. Since the news of Standard and Poor’s (S&P) downgrade of U.S. debt on Friday night, we have been reviewing the market’s current risk-reward profile and preparing for what should be another volatile week for investors.

On Sunday, we revisited our study of points in market history that are similar to the present day. Since we are dealing with human greed and fear, we can better understand the bull/bear odds in the present day by looking for differences between markets that should have been held (1994, 1998, 2004) and markets that should have been sold (2000).

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKerri Shannon writes: Thursday's stock-market sell-off has injected investors with more fear and uncertainty - but this is not the time to panic.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average on Thursday fell 513 points, or 4.3%, and regained only 0.54% Friday to close at 11,444.61. The Standard & Poor's 500 Index fell 60.27 points, or 4.8%, Thursday and slipped another 0.06% Friday to close at 1,199.38.

Gold Cries "BullSheet" to Manipulated Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an extreme act of extreme hubris over common sense, a "forced rally" has begun. S&P futures that were down as much as 37 points are now down 14 points. It is 2:30 AM Central. I do not know what the actual stock market open will look like. However, I do know "sheet" when I see it.

A few times recently I used the word "BullSweet". One reader objected saying I was too polite. He proposed the word "BullShill".

S&P Downgrade of US Debt Puts Stock Market Under Pressure / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Michael_Swanson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe financial markets have been under pressure now for weeks and the selling reached a crescendo last week as the DOW fell over 500 points in one day on Thursday. This weekend people are even more worried about what may happen this week, because ratings agency Standard & Poor's downgraded U.S. Treasury bonds from a AAA rating to AA+.

People are concerned that this ratings downgrade will have a big impact the stock market and interest rates.

Why the Dow Dropped 500 Points / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Submissions

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSam Chee Kong writes: The problem that now besiege the US economy does not happened overnight or during the past few years. It had been accumulated for the past 40 years whereby the US government encourage the growth of  credit. Interest rates are kept low so that people can afford to borrow to buy basic necessities like cars and houses. However bankers due to their greed are not satisfied with the miniscule margin they are getting from the traditional brick and mortar business model which is accepting deposits and providing loans.
