Beyond The Stock Market VIX Volatility Index / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Tony_Pallotta

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have traded options for a number of years and fully understand the "greeks" as should any active options trader. When you understand options you realize how valuable of a tool they are for investing, managing risk and understanding market sentiment. They are not as risky as many think. Before I share a rather important chart, I think it is important to go over a few option basics to fully appreciate what the data is telling you.

Intel Ignites Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

Going into the earnings reports last night the focus was clearly on International Business Machines Corp. (IBM), the beast of the big boys. This stock had been on fire and was rocking on all cylinders. No one thought the focus of the evening should be on perennial loser Intel. Always disappointing the street. Always saying things are alright but never wonderful. The stock couldn't get out of its own way lately. So we had a blasting IBM and a disappointing Intel. What happens? IBM is great, but not really great, which means it was time for a small breather in the stock price. On the other hand, Intel pulled some magic out of their hat with a powerful report that included increasing margins, and looked better for the future. The result? Intel exploded, and many of the technology stocks are on a rocket ride after hours. The market is once again doing something no one, including yours truly, would have expected as even remotely possible.

The U.S. Dollar’s Destruction Apparently Saves the Markets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWheeeee, what a day already!  
The Dollar is down from 76 yesterday to 74.5 this morning, a stunning 2% drop for a currency in a country that didn't have an earthquake or a revolution overnight.  75.63 was our low of last November (a one-day spike and we were back at 81 by the end of the month as the market fell apart) and before that we only touched 74.23 briefly in November of 2009 (it's a bad month for the Dollar) and we flew up from there to 78 in December and 80 in January.

Murderers and Martyrs, Tide Goes Out on Buffett / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Janet_Tavakoli

At 12:40 Max Keiser talks to Janet Tavakoli about the tide going out on Warren Buffett, his reverse-moral suasion applied towards the rating agencies, et.al., his potential advance information of the September 2008 bailouts, GoldenWest/Wachovia/Wells Fargo, the SEC’s sleight of hand in bringing minor charges, while leaving massive securitization fraud unaddressed, i.e., enabling cover-ups.

Stock Market Elliott Wave Patterns, Quick Primer on OEW / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe received a request over the weekend to provide a bit more detail about OEW labeling. OEW applies most of the same terminology as standard EW with one major exception. We added a Major wave between the Primary and Intermediate degrees. It makes more sense, to us, that a Minor wave should be complemented by a Major wave with an Intermediate wave in between them. Our labeling scheme is provided below:

Debt Fears...Sentiment...Stock Market Lower....Nothing From Nothing.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

The market uses excuses to get its dirty work done. It tells you when things need to happen by using news to move in a certain direction, even if that same news a month or so back would have done nothing to move it. When a market needs to get something done there is nothing you can do to stop it from happening. There was news today expressing some doubt as to whether the United States will be able to pay its debt. This same news has hit other countries with an initial sell off being bought heavily over time because their markets were bullish in nature. The news really isn't anything new to anyone. We all know this by now, but again, the market needed to move lower and it used this excuse to get the job done. Sentiment is just too bullish short-term, and thus, the selling from news that would have had no effect not too long ago. The excuse. The catalyst if you will.

FTSE 100 Stocks Index Forecast 2011 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe following text is excerpted form the NEW The Stocks Stealth Bull Market Update 2011 70 page ebook is available for FREE Download. Whilst the US economy is expected to outperform the UK across most key measures for the whole of 2011 and probably several more years beyond, which on face value implies lack of performance for the FTSE. However the FTSE is not exactly an index that tracks the prospects for the British economy as over the years the FTSE has incorporated waves of foreign companies listed on the London Stock Exchange that have very little if any activity in the UK such as the big central asian, african and australian mining companies, much more so than any other leading country index such as the Dow, Dax or CAC.

QE Monetary Madness, The PIMCO Ring of Fire / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGood golly what a mess the World is!  

You know it's bad when the US begins to look responsible compared to other World governments but even Alan Greenspan is now calling for an end to the Bush Tax cuts before they cost us another $3.6Tn over the next decade(and that's assuming no inflation and steady earnings) and we have Paul Ryan and the President calling for Trillions more in deficit reduction so I guess we SOUND serious about cutting our deficit and WE SHOULD BE because the IMF this week said the U.S. budget deficit was on course to hit 10.8 percent of nation's economic output this year, tying with Ireland for the highest deficit-to-GDP ratio among advanced economies.

What Slow Economic Growth and High Inflation Means for Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: With slow economic growth and high inflation looming on the economic horizon, investors turn to earnings reports for a clue as to whether their favorite companies can handle what's ahead.

First-quarter earnings season started with a bang this week with reports from major technology, basic materials and financial companies that mostly underwhelmed the crowd. The major averages closed the week right about where they started after rallying from a sizeable dip in the middle.

Stocks Don't Follow the Dollar Index So Hold On! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far in 2011 the equities market has made some sizable whip saw type moves that even veteran traders have had difficulty being on the right side of the price action. The year started out with equities being very overbought and extended making is virtually impossible for a low risk trader to buy on pullbacks. This was primarily due to the fact that there were no real pullbacks other than for a day or two which  was immediately followed by prices continuing to grind higher.

Stock Market May Require Further Consolidation Before Breaking to New Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVery Long-term trend – The continuing strength in the indices is causing me to question whether we are in a secular bear market or two consecutive bull/bear cycles.  In any case, the very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep and prolonged decline into 2014-15.

Long-term trend - In March 2009, the SPX began an upward move in the form of a bull market.  Cycles and P&F projections point to a continuation of this trend for several more months.

S&P500, Crude Oil, and Gold Reliant on U.S. Dollar Price Action / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article “The week that was” left many investors running for the exits on Monday and Tuesday as prices in the equity, energy, and precious metals markets plunged. The U.S. Dollar index futures tried to work their way out of a descending channel, but came up unsuccessful. The U.S. Dollar index rallied in several morning sessions, but usually was met with heavy selling later in the day which either muted gains or pushed the dollar index lower. The other notable development this week was some Fed drivel which solidified the Central Bank’s continued efforts to devalue the U.S. currency and hold short term interest rates hostage. In addition, it seems more likely with every press release from a Fed Governor that Quantitative Easing II will expire in June and Quantitative Easing III will not be pursued unless economic conditions worsen.

Stock Market Still In The Handle... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

The question is will it stay that way. The Nasdaq has made a clear handle bottom at yesterday's gap down low reversal at 2733. The top is clear at 2815. An 82-point range which makes sense. Three percent gives the market plenty of room to drive everyone nuts. Just enough room to head fake everyone on an almost daily basis. Handles are classic for making you think one thing is happening, but it doesn't. You can be so sure about what's next only to discover you were totally wrong about your thinking process. The more you play in a handle the more you lose. Very few can do it just right. The deeper problem with handles is that you never know just how long they are going to last. There is no historical reference for how long it will drag on. It could be just a few weeks, such as we have just experienced, or it can be months, sometimes many many months. No fun for sure.

Fed Reckoning Day Realities for Investor Pain and Gains / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“In this light, the Fed’s action is especially meretricious. If it weren’t in such a hurry to juice the stock market and thereby keep the illusion of recovery going, it might have considered extending the regulatory sequester on bank capital for a few more quarters or even years thereby preserving a shield for the taxpayers until it has been demonstrated by the passage of time, not by the passing of phony stress tests, that the American banking system is truly out of the woods.

SPX Stock Market Correction Looms, Buying Opportunity? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Zeal_LLC

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStock bull markets don’t rally higher in a nice linear fashion.  Their advance is much more chaotic, flowing and ebbing.  Two steps forward are inevitably followed by one step back.  Today the US stock markets, despite their recent selloff in early March, still look to be in this correction mode.  These ebbings present stock traders with awesome buying opportunities, the best ever seen within ongoing bulls.

The Financial Sector Will Have a Major Impact on the SP 500 / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Marty_Chenard

Regardless of whether a compromise is reached over the approaching lockdown of the United States ceiling and the raising of the debt, this impasse has momentous significance for holders of gold (SPDR Gold Shares (GLD)) and silver (iShares Silver Trust (SLV)). The serious weaknesses of our economic structure is exposing it as a paper tiger. Instead of seeking fiscal sanity, the inability of our leaders to agree on even the smallest of issues is reminiscent of the Roman Empire dealing out bread and circus to the masses when Rome could no longer afford the good times and the games.

How Foreign Central Banks Could End the U.S. Stocks Bull Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: William McChesney Martin Jr., the revered former head of the U.S. Federal Reserve, is remembered for many things - including an unprecedented term as chairman that lasted from March 1951 to January 1970.

But Martin is perhaps best remembered for the central-banking aphorism that says that the Fed's most important job is "to take away the punch bowl just as the party gets going." (See accompanying graphic below.)
