Quantitative Easing Targets Asset Prices, Not Bank Reserves / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith markets coming off of overbought levels, bullish sentiment high, and gold backing off a vertical ascent, we believe investors need to be ready for a quantitative easing (QE) disappointment pullback. A “buy the QE rumor, sell the QE news” event needs to be considered from a portfolio management perspective. Having said that we also believe most investors and many financial professionals do not fully understand how QE works in the real world and that one of QE’s primary objectives is to inflate asset prices.

Stocks Tread Water Ahead of Consumer Data / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. stocks rose Monday, sending the S&P 500 Index to a 4th straight gain, after the Group of 20 nations pledged to avoid “competitive devaluations” of currencies and investors bet the Federal Reserve will announce further bond purchases next week. Stocks wise DuPont, Kraft Foods and Walt Disney all climbed more than 1.4 percent to lead gains amongst the largest U.S. companies. And Citigroup rallied 2.4 percent after Goldman Sachs added the shares to its “conviction buy” list. Elsewhere CommScope surged 30 percent on news a private equity firm is considering a takeover while Office Depot also gained 3.5 percent after saying earnings will beat estimates.

Why Wall Street Bonuses Will Cost Us All in the Long Run / Stock-Markets / Market Regulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: Wall Street firms may not be reaping the record-breaking revenues of 2004-2007, but they're paying themselves the lofty bonuses of that lavish era - and they're doing it at our expense and with the government's blessing.

Wall Street's pay packages, including bonuses, are set to total 4% more in 2010 than in the already record year of 2009, The Wall Street Journal recently reported.

Stock Market Has Another Positive Start to the Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices started the week out on a positive note, although a last half-hour sell off took back a chunk of the profits.

The day started out with a gap up and strong early morning rally that took the Nasdaq 100 to new highs at 2127 and the S&P 500 to 1196. They then sold off, backed and filled, consolidated, and tried an afternoon rally, which got up to the morning highs but couldn't quite break out late and run. When that occurred, they rolled over hard in the last half hour to pare back the gains.

Stock Market Prints Dojis....Still Strong Overall.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleYou look at the market and wonder when it will turn a bit. When will it sell off from this up trend to unwind those overbought daily oscillators? We have at, or near, 70 RSI on all the major index charts for weeks now, and a selling phase for a few days would do wonders to set things up very nicely. You often get this to happen when you print a doji or a spinning candle off a nice up trend.

Liquidity Traps, Falling Velocity, Commodity Hoarding, and Bernanke's Misguided Tinkering / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Mike_Shedlock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJohn Hussman has an interesting post this week on the misguided policies of the Bernanke Fed and how quantitative easing promotes commodity speculation and hoarding but does nothing for the real economy. Please consider Bernanke Leaps into a Liquidity Trap

The belief that an increase in the money supply will result in an increase in GDP relies on the assumption that velocity will not decline in proportion to the increase in money. Unfortunately for the proponents of "quantitative easing," this assumption fails spectacularly in the data - both in the U.S. and internationally - particularly at zero interest rates.

Upside Acceleration for China Shanghai Stocks Index / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Shanghai Composite Index rocketed to new post-July highs today, which should continue to benefit names likes Arch Coal (ACI), Walter Energy (WLT), and Freeport-McMoRan Copper & Gold (FCX).

After consolidating for four sessions right around its August 2009-October 2010 down trendline, today the Shanghai index accelerated to the upside to 3,051 in what looks like the start of a new upleg that could be heading for a test of its April high at 3182, or another +4.3%.

Stock Market Increasing Evidence of Approaching Short-term Top, Gold Consolidating / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

Very Long-term trend - Down! The very-long-term cycles are down and if they make their lows when expected, the bear market which started in October 2007 should continue until about 2014-2015.

Long-term trend - In March 2009, equity markets began a corrective move in the form of a mini bull market. Many signs point to a continuation of this trend into 2011 and the surpassing of the April 2010 intermediate top.

Weekend SPX, Dollar, Oil and Gold Analysis / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Last week was volatile thanks to China raising their interest rates a quarter basis point. This rate hike caused the Dollar to spike in value which in turn forced equities and metals to sell off sharply. This one day event caused equities to break below a short term support level causing a large number of protective stops to be triggered. This added more selling pressure causing the market to be down nearly 2.5% at one point but a late day bounce recouped a good chunk of the drop.

Stock Market October Curse vs Objective Analysis / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: EWI

Over the weekend, I went shopping for Halloween decorations. In the store, one of the clerks was wearing a white T-shirt with a puff-paint rendering of the Dow Jones Industrial Average. The line representing prices was the color of blood red, dripping and splashed across the front. When I asked him what it was, he said "the October Curse."

Stock Market Holding Up Very Well..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

It's an old story already. The market remains in its confirmed up trend that has been in place for several months now. The bears keep thinking the story is over, yet the market keeps telling them otherwise. The moment we see some selling, the bears rush in as evidenced by the big spike in the put-call ratio. This tells me that the thinking is still waiting for something very bad to take place. The other day, when the market was down quite a bit we saw the put-call trade over 1.0 for the entire day, including a reading of 1.35.

Flight From Safety of U.S. Treasury Bonds into Stocks? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Steven_Vincent

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAlthough the current market dialogue between Bulls and Bears is focused on the Inflation vs. Deflation dichotomy, it's possible that a dynamic between Risk vs. Safety is the better framework for analysis.

The possible transition from Safety to Risk took a big leap forward recently as the most favored repository of investor fears, the US Treasury market, showed significant signs of breaking down and putting in a long term top. SPX:USB, the ratio of Risk to Safety as measured by the S&P 500 / US Treasury 30 Year Bond price, closed well above its 200 day EMA after having broken out of a declining wedge pattern. After the breakout the EMA was successfully retested:

More Signs of a Stock Market Top / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs Freddie Mac Reports An Uptick In The 30 Year Mortgage Rate, Have Mortgage Rates Hit A Floor?

(ZeroHedge)  Is the floor in mortgage rates in? After hitting a record all time low of 4.19% in the week ended October 14, the Freddie 30 Year Fixed mortgage rate has risen slightly but appreciatively to 4.21% (chart below). This is not all that surprising considering the 10 Year UST has been meandering around the 2.5% spot for a while now. What it does indicate, however, is that absent QE2 mortgages may have just hit their floor for the current regime. As it is no secret the Fed is intent on lowering mortgage rates as low as possible the question becomes whether a level in the low 4%'s is enough for mortgage activity to finally pick up.
