United States is Going Down Slow, Debt Problem is Global / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: UnpuncturedCycle

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe greatest discovery of my generation is that a human being can alter his life by altering his attitudes of mind.- William James (1842 - 1910)

If you believe everything you read in the newspaper it appears that the U.S. housing market is finally rising from a long slumber. Yet real estate Web site Zillow reports that homeowners are still under water. Nearly 16 million homeowners owed more on their mortgages than their home was worth in the first quarter, or nearly one-third of U.S. homeowners with mortgages. That’s a $1.2 trillion hole in the collective home equity of American households. Despite the temptation to just walk away and mail back the keys, nine of 10 underwater borrowers are making their mortgage and home loan payments on time. Only 10 percent are more than 90 days delinquent. Still, “negative equity” will continue to weigh on the housing market – and the broader economy – because it sidelines so many potential homebuyers.

Investing in Japan: Is There Light at the End of the Tunnel? / Stock-Markets / Japanese Stock Market

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Most people have given up on investing in Japan.

With an aging population and far too much government debt, the conventional wisdom is that Japan will never again see the vigorous economic growth it once enjoyed.

Are Capital Controls Coming to America? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Gary_North

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAre capital controls coming to the United States? They may be for Switzerland, The Swiss National Bank has announced that it is considering the imposition of controls. But these will be controls on euro accounts being shifted into Swiss francs.

Why would a central bank impose controls on money flowing in? Because this will raise the market price of francs in relation to euros. The central bank is dominated by mercantilist thinking. A rising currency is seen as a liability. Why? Because exporters are hit by the falling value of the foreign currency. Foreigners must pay more to buy francs to buy Swiss goods.

Euro-Zone Crisis Delay and Pray, Stock Market Not Bearish Enough to Support a Rally / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article-- The VIX remains beneath Mid-Cycle resistance at 24.21 but above its Head & Shoulders neckline today.  It overshot the neckline on the first pullback and the second one is not as deep, but we would not like to see it go beneath the neckline.  Tomorrow is the next pivot day, so it is possible that we may have seen the last of the correction today.  This action seems to be saying that the rally in equities may be short-lived.

Stock Market a Better Bubble? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLike an elaborate musical score that repeats key notes from an earlier motif, the final stage of the long topping process is hitting many of the same chords played near the end of the Grand Super cycle bull market in January 2000. Last month, we mentioned the capitulation of long-term bears and the establishment of a stock market in Cambodia. This month, a major financial weekly called for many stodgy Dow stocks to be replaced by high flying technology stocks. This call takes us directly back to December 1999, when Fortune magazine lobbied to replace the Dow with an index composed entirely of Internet companies, and the business editor of the Washington Post railed at the under-performing Dow for making him too bearish: "If you find that you're too anxious, just take a look at what the Dow really is. It's 30 stocks of huge old-timely companies'"

More Stock Market Interim Rally Ahead? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Andre_Gratian

Diamond Rated - 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 - Correction

US Stock Market Wears the Heavy Crown - SP 500 Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: David_Banister

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US market is one of very few trying to maintain a long term uptrend Bull cycle around the world. Most major world indices are in decline, only Germany and London are also trying to hang in of the major indices.

Will the rest of European problems continue to spillover and weigh down our markets in finally cause a flush? Or… will the US stay strong and lead higher amidst the turmoil?

Are we to Bame Nixon for Fed Money Printing Market Trends? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Darah_Bazargan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Fundamental forces driving this market higher for the short term is partly due to the expectation of QE3. Ben Bernanke will ultimately prime the printing pump again, but only after we see the selling pressure intensify.

There is still plenty more downside left of this market, which is why I'm telling you not to believe this current rally. It is simply a contra-trend within a larger decline, but only for the intermediate term.

Stock Market Downtrend May Have Bottomed / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarkets rebounded this week after last week’s nasty selloff. Last week’s decline of SPX/DOW 3.9% was the largest weekly decline in six months. The previous one was the week of November 21, 2011: a 4.75% decline that marked the end of Major wave 2. Thus far, it looks like the recent selloff may have marked the end of Major wave 4. For the week the SPX/DOW were +1.20%, and the NDX/NAZ were +2.05%. Asian markets were flat, European markets were +0.6%, and the DJ World index gained 0.7%. On the economic front it was a mixed week. All five the publicly watched indicators were higher: existing/new home sales, FHFA housing prices, durable goods orders and consumer sentiment. Yet, four of the not so publicly watched indicators we track were all lower: the M1- multiplier, new home sale prices, the monetary base and the WLEI. The last week of May starts off with a US holiday, then is followed by a slew of economic reports. Q1 GDP, the Payrolls report and PCE prices highlight the week. Best to your week!

Stock Market Crash Alert, Market is Falling Like a Stone / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs you might have noticed, the stock market is falling like a stone. German 2-year debt (bund) has dipped below 0% this morning at auction, signalling an acceleration in the bank run taking place in southern Europe. Depositors in Spain, Greece, Italy, Portugal, etc would rather take a loss on their investment, then risk not their money back at all. The European Central Bank (ECB) does not guarantee deposits, so people are withdrawing their money en masse and getting out of Dodge pronto. What we're seeing is a real-time panic.

Stock Market Forecast for Coming Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Manas_Banerji

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMarket is now eyeing on Euro bonds, experts are expecting that it may create a good atmosphere in the financial market. But I am not sure whether that has the capabilities to make a reversal! Market is not going to make a new run from here; we may see a short-term change and that in-turn may create more opportunities for shorts. Gulf related problems may find a solution in coming month so crude oil may not disturb market.

Copper and Global Stock Markets Rollover / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

Following the May 9th Market Minute titled "Downward trend starts", global markets are continuing to rollover. Copper, often referred to as a bellwether indicator on the broader economy, is also declining. The peak in copper prices was in early 2011 and it has dropped steadily over the past year.

Stock Market Bear Flag Continues.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

There is no question about the pattern in place across all the major daily index charts. Whether looking at the S&P 500, Dow, Nasdaq 100, small-cap stocks or large-cap stocks, you see the same pattern everywhere. There was an intense move lower in the market across the board, and after a while, the market got very oversold on all those daily charts. It was time for a pause in the down trend, with the natural course of things to back test the lost 20-day exponential moving averages. Using the S&P 500, that means a back test of 1343. It's been five days in the bear flag, and thus far, the S&P 500 has shown no inclination to even make that type of normal back test. It's just incredibly poor action, to say the least. It's still a possibility that it will happen, but ever so slowly and surely, we are unwinding those oversold oscillators without, basically, any price appreciation. That's never a good sign.

Merkel’s thoughts on ticker tape, Euro is no longer a friend to Germany / Stock-Markets / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: William_Bancroft

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs the Eurozone crisis rumbles on investors’ attention is split across a range of European issues; an apparently imminent ‘Grexit’ (possibly the ugliest wordmash we’ve ever heard), strains in the Italian bond market, Spanish property loans defaulting and busting the Spanish banking system, Portugal’s continued woes,  France’s tired state driven economy and more. These are all issues that matter and are part of the macroeconomic picture. They are all here to stay, ‘givens’ if you like, or ‘known knowns’ to use Donald Rumsfeld’s contribution to the lexicon.

Euro Panic, ECB Out of funds, and Germany Out of Patience / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGood Morning!

FXE (124.43) is leaking lower beneath its massive Head & Shoulders neckline at 124.75.  The wave pattern may allow it to wiggle around at this point, but the trend is totally down.  It is certain that the algos will try to milk any news about another European bailout, even though the ECB is out of funds and Germany is out of patience.  Meanwhile the Greek police are trying to keep their constituents from stuffing their mattresses full of Euros.  This simply cannot get any worse, or can it?

Euro-Zone Crisis Real Deal, Warning What Follows is EXTREMELY BAD / Stock-Markets / Eurozone Debt Crisis

By: Graham_Summers

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe media is rife with misrepresentations and analysis of the EU. Here’s the real deal.

  1. The ECB is tapped out. Having provided over €1 trillion in funding via LTRO 1 and LTRO 2, taking on over €700 billion in PIIGS debt putting its own solvency at risk, it simply cannot launch another LTRO scheme for the following reasons:
    1. Those banks accepting LTRO funding are being punished by the market, thereby indicating that ECB funding is no financially toxic to a firm’s reputation in the market place
    2. The positive effects of LTRO 2 lasted only one month compared to several months for LTRO 1. Thus, we find that with each additional intervention the benefits are shorter lasting.
