Investing for Profit in the Russian Mafia States Stock Market, Goodbye Chinese Century? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWikileaks recently released U.S. Embassy cables that contained accusations of Russia being a defacto Mafia State that has ceased to be a democracy and is run by the secret services on behalf of an Oligarchy. Much of which comes as nothing of a surprise to either the Russian people, business men or foreign investors who know that whilst doing business with Russia can prove highly profitable, however investors and business people have to be nimble footed by being prepared to pull their funds out at short notice, which mean investors need to be invested in highly liquid funds that aim to track or better the general Russian stock indices such as the RTS stock market index rather than in illiquid individual stocks.

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis and Forecast for Week Starting 13th Dec / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother positive week for US equities as the SPX/NDX/NAZ all made new bull market highs. Economic reports were nearly all positive. The only negatives were an increase in the budget deficit and a downtick in the M1 multiplier. On the positive side, the trade deficit improved along with import/export prices and weekly mortgage applications. Consumer credit expanded, consumer sentiment improved; wholesale inventories, the monetary base and the WLEI all rose. Also weekly jobless claims and excess reserves declined. These reports continued the 2010 second half trend of an improving, not deteriorating, economy.

Quantitative Easing Financial Markets Train Smash Coming / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this analyst’s view, it is only a matter of time before the folly of Quantitative Easing becomes transparent to everyone.  That time may be closer than most people think.

U.S. Interest Rates, the Fed and Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf late it seems that rising interest rates and the Fed’s ability to “keep rates low” have become a focal point for many of the news commentators.   The vast majority of the public believes that the Fed is actually controlling interest rates and as a result that they are controlling the credit markets as well as the equity markets.  I am about to show you the proof that the Fed follows the short-term credit market and that in reality they do not lead.  The data simply does not support the widely held belief that the Fed is in “control” of the markets.    I realize that this may come as a shock to you, but reality is what it is.  The data speaks for itself.

SPX Stock Market Rally Near Completion, Is the FDIC Out of Cash? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

November Budget Deficit $150.4 Billion, Worse Than $138 Billion Consensus, Biggest November Deficit On Record
(ZeroHedge) The Treasury has released the November deficit, which at $150.4 billion was about $12 billion worse than expected. Total receipts were $148 billion, of which individual income taxes were $64.3 billion, while the government actually refunded $3.1 billion for corporate taxes in the month. While cumulative receipts since the start of the new fiscal year are better than in the prior year period ($135.7 billion compared to $109.1 billion), it is the expense side that is far more important: in November the government spent $299.4 billion, the bulk of which going to the Department of Health and Human Services ($72 billion), social security ($64 billion), and Defense ($57 billion).

Stocks Risking Taking, Bonds Take a Beating and Gold Volatility / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA&P May File for Bankruptcy as Soon as Weekend After 151 Years in Business
(Bloomberg) Great Atlantic & Pacific Tea Co., the once-dominant grocery-store chain founded in 1859, may file for bankruptcy in the coming days to restructure debt, two people with knowledge of the matter said. A filing to reorganize under court protection may come as soon as this weekend, said the people, who declined to be identified because the matter is private. A&P hired law firm Kirkland & Ellis LLP to represent it in negotiations with creditors and in any Chapter 11 proceeding, the people said.

Stock Market Higher..Getting Overbought Again.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

The market continues its slow and steady grind higher. Small candle sticks along the way aren't great, but it is managing to move higher. The up trend continuing, but unfortunately, the daily charts are all near, or actually at, overbought on those daily charts with stochastic's in the 90's and RSI's in the 68 to 74 range. 74 on the iShares Russell 2000 Index (IWM), or small caps, while the Nasdaq is basically at 70. S&P 500 and Dow right there as well. Grinding new highs as we move in to overbought isn't the best action for the bulls. We are making slight new breakouts but not in a fashion that suggests too much more from here. The NDX has major resistance at 2239, or roughly 1%, from here. Not sure we can get it, but you give the benefit of the doubt to the bulls due to the overall up trend in place.

Inflation Cures What It Doesn’t Kill / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US and China seem to be at opposite polarity. The US rulers are trying to inflate the economy and thereby reflate the stock indices. China is trying to deflate the economy and thereby restrain their stock index. To Ben Bernanke’s credit, he has been specific about his desire to see inflation rise in the US. To his discredit, real inflation is already locked in with a rear naked choke hold that is turning the consumers face blue already.

Exiting Fixed Income Bonds and Moving into Equities / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Mike_Paulenoff

A very quiet day, but the sellers are MIA -- at least for the time being. The enclosed comparison chart perhaps sheds some light on what is going on - bond prices continue to press lower concurrent with bouyant (grinding higher) equity prices, which suggests that money is exiting fixed income into equities.

Stock Markets End Week with a Whimper / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI thought some uplifting music might help today as the markets have not been turning in a super performance this week despite a $1Tn tax cut/stimulus package pumped into it just 3 days ago.  That morning, I posted Chris Kimble's charts from our Chart School and we were looking at key resistance at S&P 1,224, Nasdaq 2,600 (NDX 2,191), NYSE 7,751 and Russell 756.  We're above all those this morning but what we're not above is my 11,500 level on the Dow.  In fact, if you look at the Dow over the past 6 sessions, you'll notice we hit quite a wall at about 11,375.

Will a Santa Claus Stock Market Rally Bring Christmas Cheer to Investors? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Money_Morning

Jason Simpkins writes: Seasonal market indicators are often spotty, but the so-called "Santa Claus rally" has some solid statistical backing.

The Santa Claus rally lacks a concrete definition, but the gist of the theory is that stocks perform well in December – particularly in the period between Christmas and the first days of the New Year.

Crash Silver, Buy JP Morgan and Prevent Financial Armageddon / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe "Crash JP Morgan, Buy Silver " internet campaign has been gathering momentum for several months now as individual investors increasingly jump upon the rolling bandwagon by buying a few silver coins. The high profile proponents of the campaign include Max Keiser, Mike Maloney and Alex Jones amongst many others. Whilst they are correct in identifying JP Morgan as being the worlds largest market manipulator that continious to leech the life blood out of the US Economy via the corrupt institution that is the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank that literally makes unlimited funds available at JPMorgans disposal.

Stock Market Narrowly Mixed Close to Choppy Session / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices were narrowly mixed today and a little choppy. They started out with a gap to the upside and that was it. Basically, they reached their session highs in the first few minutes, sold off sharply in the morning to test support, bounced midday to take about 50% back, and then backed off to retest. When that was successful they came on into the close, but in the last 10 minutes backed off one more time.

Stock Market Indices Close Positive in Volatile Session / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices had a very interesting, volatile day with a gap up and a quick pop to resistance which failed, and then rolled over very sharply at that point and reached the session lows after about an hour of trading. At that point the Nasdaq 100 was around 2183 and the S&P 500 just under 1220. A 5-wave advance ensued for the rest of the session, and the indices ended up spiking up into the close, closing near the session highs going away, right at key resistance. Still, they managed to move into the plus column and end up positive on the session.

Is The Herd Trading Gold and SP500? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past 2 weeks we have seen the market sentiment change three times from extreme bullish to bearish and back to bullish as of today. Normally we don’t see the herd (average Joe) switch trading directions this quickly. Over the past 10 years I found that the average time for the herd to reach an extreme bullish or bearish bias takes between 4-6 weeks in length. It is this herd mentality which makes for some excellent trend trading opportunities. But with the quantitative easing, thinner traded market, and lack of trading participants (smaller herd) I find everyone is ready to change directions at the drop of a hat.

Stock Market Handle, Handle...Tiring...Appropriate... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

You have to laugh at how these handles can drive you crazy. They take their sweet time playing themselves out, that's for sure. When those measurements were made on the S&P 500, Dow and Nasdaq, I warned you an extended period of time was upon us to unwind and cool things off. From that perspective it has not disappointed. It's well in to its fifth week with seemingly no end in sight. It tried to break through 1228 yesterday, the previous top, but failed due to some very overbought short-term charts. It can move down 3% to 4% at any moment in time just to frustrate the masses further, including your truly.

The Dollar, Failing Euro and Volatile Gold and Crude Oil / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Bari_Baig

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFirst we look at the Dollar index. The streets are cheering as the treasury yields have jumped in the past two days therefore giving the green back the boost it needed to snap out from last week’s losing streak but whenever you have extra hype which to us looks like a stampede we shy away from it for one reason, we aren’t strong enough to run with the stampede and more than often it serves us well. The hype is such that as if Green back is going to blow straight off the roof however, that hasn’t happened thus far. The Dollar index as we write is only marginally up 0.21% which hardly depicts anything but the hype.

Should U.S. Investors Fear a Japan Deflation Scenario? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Nilus_Mattive

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith Ben Bernanke and the Federal Reserve now into their second round of quantitative easing, a lot of investors are becoming increasingly worried about the U.S. “becoming like Japan.”

In short, they’re starting to wonder whether the entire U.S. economy is entering stagnation so deep that all the money pumping in the world won’t get us out of it — the very same condition that Japan has been suffering with since the early 1990s.

Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA) Insider Trading? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInterview with Larry Doyle at Sense on Cents, by Ilene 

Here's the hypocrisy of the Financial Industry Regulatory Authority* (FINRA); it dumped a portfolio of Auction Rate Securities* (ARS) before the ARS market froze up in early 2008. People are asking legitimate questions and FINRA is refusing to answer. When FINRA wants its questions answered, it knows how to get the answers through its subpoena power. Why won't FINRA fess up and be transparent about its dealings in the ARS market?
