Financial Meltdown: The Case Against the Ratings Agencies / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Michael_Hudson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn today’s looming confrontation the ratings agencies are playing the political role of “enforcer” as the gatekeepers to credit, to put pressure on Iceland, Greece and even the United States to pursue creditor-oriented policies that lead inevitably to financial crises. These crises in turn force debtor governments to sell off their assets under distress conditions. In pursuing this guard-dog service to the world’s bankers, the ratings agencies are escalating a political strategy they have long been refined over a generation in the corrupt arena of local U.S. politics.

By: Ellen_Brown

The worst drop was on Monday, Aug. 8, when the Dow plunged 624 points. Monday was the first day of trading after U.S. Treasury bonds were downgraded from AAA to AA+ by Standard and Poor’s.

How To Prepare for Economic Depression / Stock-Markets / Great Depression II

By: The_Gold_Report

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe week of August 15 was one of the most volatile stock market performances in years. Negative news about the global economy, gloomy forecasts and mixed signals on the jobs front battered stocks and sent gold repeatedly above $1,800/ounce. The Gold Report asked an analyst, two newsletter writers and an economist the following: What should be a precious metals investor's next move?

Investors Profitably Surmounting Plutocratic Perfidy / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: DeepCaster_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“Tuesday’s Fed meeting was sad. They failed to do what wise men urged, ie, cut the fat rate Fed pays banks that put reserves with Fed to zero. That would have caused banks to remove reserves & free them up for lending. Not doing this reveals banks control Fed & Fed is a banks cartel. That’s why Thomas Jefferson said he feared banks more than standing armies.”

Investment Impact of Primary Stocks Bear Market Trend Since 2000 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf you happen to be a retiree, you will understand this is your gut: The Primary Trend of the US equity market has been “down” since 2000.  As is clearly visible from the 80 year chart below (courtesy Decisonpoint.com) the market peaked in 2000 – that’s 11 years ago. Any arguments about a pending bull market are just noise. There is no evidence to support the argument being made by stockbrokers and investment funds that the markets will rise to new heights in the foreseeable future. For 11 years they have been talking to their book. Since 2000, the only way to make money on the market has been by trading in an out- which is why the hedge fund industry boomed.

Stock Market Sure Looks Like 2008 / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tony_Pallotta

"He observed that human emotions collectively had major impacts on the on stock prices and the patterns seen in the Stock Markets in general." ~ From a book on the teachings of Jesse Livermore

When you think of it in the short term markets are nothing more than a group of people trying to process data and understand what others are doing all under the stress of losing personal wealth. They are trying to solve a problem that in may ways is not solvable unless one can adapt. Similar to a group of Navy SEALs on a mission. They are successful only if they can adjust to the changing situation. There's a reason few are SEALs and few are successful in this business.

Economists Refuse to Recognize the New Great Depression / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe recent financial slump has caused economists to take stock of the possibility of a "double dip" recession. Most of them, however, won't admit that the economic contraction which began in late 2007 is still underway and, worse still, has a few more years to run according to the Kress cycles. In this commentary we'll address this issue and have a look at where the cycles are leading the financial market and the economy.

Are Gold and the Stock Market Behaving Logically or Irrationally / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBack on August 7th the S&P 500 was in the midst of a panic induced selloff and the bulls were running scared. Prices were collapsing and the bulls were racing to the exits. In the following weeks, piles of money flew out of equity mutual funds as the retail investors rang the register and pulled their money out near the lows which seems to be a regularly recurring event.

Volatility is Not The Same As Risk in the Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Rory_Gillen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf it looks like risk, feels like risk and acts like risk, it is natural to conclude that it is risk. But in turbulent times, such as now, investors must remind themselves that volatility is not the same as risk.

The stock markets are nothing more than a collection of businesses and risk is highest in individual companies and can be categorised as follows;

Gold and Stocks Are About To Move in Opposite Directions Get Ready! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe past few weeks traders and investors have been completely spooked from the surge of negative news and collapsing stock prices. This fear can be seen by looking at the volume on the GLD gold ETF fund. With gold being in the spot light for several years now and the fact that anyone can own gold simply through buying some GLD shares. It only makes sense that reading the volume on this chart gives us a good feel for what the masses are feeling emotionally.

Stock Market Handle Time Continues... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

And that means whipsaw, but little action worth talking about. The top today at 1208 should be the near-term high, although we will look for signs that it could be exceeded in the days ahead. 1101 is the clear low, and that level may never be taken out to the down side. The question I am being asked, already, is how long do these handles last. The best answer I can give is, no one knows, but a multi-month handle is very possible, if not likely. The bears did their best to take the markets down below 1249, and they did a great job. When we got extremely oversold, the market bottomed at 1101, and I talked about a handle to form, and that's in place now. It will be boring, and probably long lasting. Lots of whipsaw. Very emotional. In the end nothing from nothing. In the months to come, it'll make a move out of that handle, and there's no way to know, for sure, which way it'll break. It'll be dependent upon economic reports to come over that time.

Coming in October: Next Major Stock Market Cycle Low / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Mike_Paulenoff

A major price cycle on the daily S&P 500 chart, which shows reliability in bottoming about every 15.5 months, is due for its next low on or about October 31.  The cycle appears to have been influencing prices since the 2002-03 lows.

To any market historian, the suggestion that such a major cycle is due to bottom next in the second half of October sends shivers down the spine of the most ardent market optimist.

Road to Apathy, Catching Out the Knee-Jerk Stock Buyers of 2008/2009… / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Aftab_Singh

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf we had to choose to indulge in just one form of pseudo financial mysticism, we would undoubtedly go for the view that financial assets tend to move in generational cycles.  In short, we believe that nothing is more conducive to action than good old muscle memory. Here, I explain why the recent crash in the array of ‘risk assets’ is corroborating our hunch about the generational nature of trends in financial assets. Moreover, I consider one way in which widespread apathy towards speculation may come to pass.
