Stock Market SPX Correction May Be Over / 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 cyclical bull/bear cycles side by side.  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 mini bull market.  Cycles point to a continuation of this trend for several more months.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe FDIC Average Weekly Closures May be Rising.
The FDIC Failed Bank List announced only one new bank closure this week.  U.S. regulators said they seized a failed Illinois bank Friday, the second from that state this year. The Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. said it received Valley Community Bank of St. Charles, Ill., and entered a purchase-and-assumption agreement with First State Bank of Mendota, Ill., to take over the failed bank.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment and a Quick Dow Theory Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Tim_Wood

Sentiment alone is not a timing tool for the market.  But, it is useful in telling us when too many people get on the same side of the boat, which in turn tells us that conditions have ripened for a turn.   I have said many times of late that the recent sentiment environment reminded me of the 2006 and 2007 period.    In the chart below I have included the S&P 500 and a sentiment indicator that is comprised of the Investor Intelligence Bulls divided by Bulls plus Bears.  In other words, this shows us the percentage of Bulls to total Bulls and Bears.  Now, note on the chart below that during the 2007 period when this reading rose above 72%, an intermediate-term top soon followed.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTreasury: Close to entering a long term bear market on US treasury on 10 year duration. We believe the COT captures the true picture of the developing situation in the US as FED moves in with QE3 which will be close to $400-500 billion of asset purchase. COT for week ended Feb 26 indicates that shorts have increased their position with nearly 148k contracts shorted, an increase of 32k new shorts for the week.

Crude Driving Stock Market, Elliott Wave Analysis for Week Starting 28th Feb / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis week markets, worldwide, took their biggest hit since the second week in November on civil unrest in Libya and a spike in Crude oil prices. WTIC started the week at $88.80/bbl and spiked, in three days, up to $103.40 on supply concerns. The US equity market responded with its largest pullback since November: -3.7%, on economic concerns of surging energy costs. Crude pulled back in the last day and a half to end the week at $97.90, upper mid-range for the week. Equity markets rebounded on that pullback. For the week the SPX/DOW were -1.9%, and the NDX/NAZ were -1.9%.

Fibonacci and the Pricing Mechanism of Financial Markets, S&P500 and US Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEvidence is mounting that the pricing mechanism of global markets creates spontaneous order out of the chaos of billions of people pursuing their self-interested purpose. Arriving at a price for products, services and financial assets is the heart of this process. There are successes and failures in every round of pricing, which are priced into the next cycle of human action in global markets.

Stock Market Topping, Treasuries Recovering and Gold is on a Tear / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInitial Claims Drop 22K To 391K, On Expectations Of 405K, Durable Goods Collapse -  (ZeroHedge)  Initial Claims, which were obviously revised higher from 410K to 413K, dropped well below expectations, printing at 391K, on expectations of 405K.  With claims continuing to hug the 400K line, this means that unfortunately the economy is not creating nearly enough jobs: as a reminder per the CBO, the US needs to create over 100K jobs a month just to stay in line with population growth. Continuing claims dropped from an (upward) revised 3935K to 3790K, as more and more people hit the 6 month continuing benefits cliff. They also are hitting the end of their 99 week extension period: those on extended benefits dropped by -111,087.

Stock Market Finds A Way...Expect Some Chop Next Week... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

It found a way to get back through the 20-day exponential moving average. The Nasdaq tested down two times yesterday below the key 50-day exponential moving average, but closed above while showing a positive divergence on the 60-minute short-term charts at that double bottom. The close above with the positive divergence told us a move up off oversold was on the way, but I didn't expect the 20-day exponential moving averages to be captured back in one day. This is why you never short a bull market. You should rarely play counter trend. If you want cash that's fine, but counter trend playing makes little sense. 2769 was the level the Nasdaq needed to take back and it did just that. Nothing explosive above, but above, nonetheless. Impressive. The price of oil had led this market lower. It printed near 103.00 per barrel yesterday, and that was the reason for the brief loss of those 50's on the Nasdaq. The S&P 500 and Dow never fell below.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“You can’t lose what you don’t put in the middle.” Mike McDermott, Rounders

While this week was shortened due to the President’s Day holiday, it has been quite a ride for traders and investors. The 24 hour news cycle certainly intensifies current market conditions as any news focusing on oil or the Middle East protests moves markets. Thursday the International Energy Agency came out and indicated that the expected drawdown in crude oil supplies coming from Libya was being exaggerated. Immediately upon the release of this information light sweet crude oil got hammered and stocks rallied from day lows.

China Risks and Investor Opportunities / Stock-Markets / China Economy

By: Puru_Saxena

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOpinion is currently divided on the world’s second largest economy.

On one hand of the spectrum, the bears believe that China is a train-wreck and that its economic growth is unsustainable. These sceptics love to highlight the property bubble in China and they never miss the opportunity to mention the fact that fixed asset investment accounts for a disproportionately large chunk of the Chinese economy.  According to the bearish camp, China’s economy is not real; rather, its breakneck economic growth is centrally planned by Beijing. Furthermore, the bears argue that China’s vast foreign exchange reserves are meaningless and that they will be used up in dealing with the aftermath of the Chinese real estate bust.

Stocks Bear Market Beginnings, There Goes the First Sector / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBear markets begin when something fundamental breaks. Usually the sector initially affected will roll over before the general market and tends to be a warning sign of what lies ahead.

The last bear market was triggered when the credit bubble created by Greenspan's foolish monetary policy burst. It was exacerbated by Bernanke's foolish attempt to debase the currency and reflate the bubble. All he succeeded in doing was to inflate oil to $147, which put the finishing touches on an already crumbling economy.

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices started the day with a little bit of a bounce to the upside, and then rolled over immediately. At that point they spent the rest of the morning dropping. By midday they reached their session lows, and in the early afternoon they started to bounce back. That lasted until about 45 minutes to go, when they backed off again to increase the losses.

Rough Few Days For The Stock Market Bulls.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

Markets tend to catch the masses off guard. It's an old story with the stock market. The bull-bear spread has stayed quite high, and actually increasing in the number of bulls, and decreasing in the number of bears over the past few weeks. More and more are getting bullish which explains how the weekly charts got so extremely overbought, especially on the S&P 500 and Dow. High-70 readings on the Dow, and mid-70 readings on the SPX said it was time to reign it in some.
