Dangers of Seeking Fast Profit in High Speed Trading / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Barry_Elias

Benoit Mandelbrot, world renowned mathematician from Harvard and Yale, passed away last week at the age of 85.

He coined the term “fractal” (a shape comprised of smaller similar shapes). He determined that derivative pricing in financial markets follows this self-similar characteristic, which leads to infinite variance (e.g., black swan, fat-tail events)

By: Christopher_Quigley

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFrom a Dow Theory point of view this is the situation as I see it. The market is giving very strong signals particularly on the Transports side. My key break point is 5265 to give the first indication that the new Bull Run has commenced. We are currently at 4735. Near but not quite there. My key break point on the Dow Industrials is 13566. WE are currently at 11146 some 2420 points away.

Small Investors Miss Out on Stocks Bull Market and Hot Commodities / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: David_Banister

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAll investors can recall the horror during the five months from October 2008 through early March of 2009 as day after day the markets continued to make new lows. That type of catastrophic drop leaves many psychological scars and probably spooked millions of investors out of the stock market for good. To wit, since the March 2009 lows and throughout this new Bull Market Cycle, Investors are pulling money out of equity funds in droves and piling into Bonds. This is the fight or flight mentality taking hold of the herd, and as they continue to disbelieve in the new bull cycle in stocks, the market continues to power higher.

Is a Stock Market Crash Imminent / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Bob_Clark

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAssets are already inflated
We are seeing some amazing imbalances in the markets.  I don't remember so many different asset classes being this heavily shorted or hedged by large commercials,  all at the same time. Don't get me wrong, to rise and fall together is fairly normal now.  It is the extremes we are reaching that is amazing. The red line on the chart shows commercial long positions minus short positions in the various futures instruments.

U.S. Mortgage Foreclosure Fiasco Weighs on Stocks / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe surprise decision by the PBoC to raise rates by 25bps (I’d now expect tomorrows GDP and CPI numbers to be upside surprises !) led to de-risking across the board and US stocks suffered their biggest setback in 2 months. The dollar (the $ index DXY +1.7 percent) was the main beneficiary as it had its biggest gain in 6 months. Commodities had a knee-jerk move lower with Gold -2.5 percent, Crude -4 percent, and Copper -3 percent. Every major S&P Subsector finished in the red with Autos (-3.3 percent), Energy (-2.4 percent), and Materials (-2.25 percent) the biggest losers. Financials (-.9 percent) held up very well over the morning, but a report released at 1:30 rattled the Banks and sent the S&P’s down an additional percent (1156 low).

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJudging from the response, my last article on Asian IPOs caught a lot of people’s attention.

Of the top 15 performing IPOs this year, nine of them are foreign companies. Out of those nine foreign companies, one is from India: MakeMyTrip.com (MMYT). One is from the Cayman Islands: Fabrinet (FN). The rest are from China, such as SouFun Holdings (SFUN), China New Borun (BORN), and Country Style Cooking (CCSC).

By: Claus_Vogt

Wall Street, Chaos Theory and Fractal Geometry / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Mathematician Benoit B. Mandelbrot, the inventor of fractal geometry, died Oct. 14.

As mathematicians go, Mandelbrot was very likely the best of the last half-century. And that brilliance extended to the financial markets. In fact, his groundbreaking insights into the operations of the stock market could have been used to avert the 2008 crash - had those insights only been heeded.

Stocks Have Been Riding the Feds Quantitative Easing Higher, Could be Topping / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Steve_Betts

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s been a while since I’ve dedicated a daily report to stocks so today I would like to spend some time discussing the Dow. Stocks have been riding the Fed’s implicit promise for more quantitative easing higher, and it now appears to me that the wave is about to wash up on shore and expire. The initial effects of easing mean more liquidity while the long term effects mean more debt heaped on top of older obligations that will never be repaid. A once great nation is now reduced to borrowing money in order to service the interest on existing arrears with no intention of paying it back. The liquidity is a result of the printing press as the Fed becomes the buyer of last resort in both the stock and bond market. A good analogy is a patient on life support just before he takes his last breath.

Stock Market Steep Sell-Off, Though Indices Bounce Off Lows / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices opened with big gaps down today, fell sharply lower, but did rally back in the morning to take back about half the losses, but that was a 3-wave corrective-looking rally. Then they rolled over late morning to early afternoon sharply, bounced a couple times, managed to hold the morning lows on the Nasdaq 100, but took them out twice on the S&P 500, reaching down just below 1160. They snapped back in the last 15-20 minutes and took back a chunk of the losses.

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. stocks rose Monday to a five-month high, led by financial shares, after Citigroup.’s earnings topped estimates and an unexpected drop in industrial production was taken as a further sign that the Federal Reserve will help fuel the recovery with another bout of QE. Citigroup rallied 5.4%. Hasbro., the second-largest toymaker, advanced 3.8% after reporting higher-than- estimated earnings. But Halliburton, the second-biggest oilfield-services provider, slumped 4.8% as profit missed analysts’ estimates.

By: Money_Morning

Stock Market Bullishness is Paradoxically a Warning Signal / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne reason that charts are important is that they facilitate a view of the financial world that enables one to cut through all the background waffle. Fundamental analysis anticipates what “should be”. Technical analysis reflects what “is” – whether it should be or not.

Below are a few charts which reflect that what “is” is not reflecting what “should be”. We can shout as loudly as we like but facts are facts.

By: Lorimer_Wilson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDr. Nu Yu writes: There has been a great deal of excitement about the recent performances of gold and silver with most analysts extremely optimistic regarding their potential. That being said technical analysis shows that gold is in for some very choppy seas ahead compared to the surging seas of the Chinese stock market.

The Largest Heist in History Building the Great Pyramid, The Global Financial Crisis Explained / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Stockpedia

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGreg Pytel writes: When the financial crisis erupted at the end of September 2008, there was an unusual sense of incredible panic among banking executives and government officials. These two establishment groups are known for their conservative, understated approach and, above all, their stiff upper lip. Yet at the time they appeared to the public running about like headless chickens. It was chaos. A state of complete chaos. Within a few weeks, however, decisions were made and everything seemed to returned to normal and back under control. The British Prime Minister Gordon Brown even famously remarked that the government “saved the world.”

70 RSI's... AAPL and IBM... Pullback Time Is Here...... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

No one will argue that it's inappropriate for this market to sell off here. 70, or higher, RSI's abound on all the major daily index charts. The NDX as high as 77 today. That's just unsustainable for a very long period of time, even in the best of market conditions. The market starts looking for a catalyst and it found it big time after hours this evening.
