Record Bond and Stock Prices Sending the Same Message / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2016

By: Michael_Pento

The S&P 500 is trading near an all-time record high. But investors should not take this as the all clear signal. According to most indicators, the market is now more overvalued than ever before.

The Cyclically Adjusted Price to Earnings Ratio analyzes the value of the S&P 500 Index with the 10-year average of "real" (inflation-adjusted) earnings as the denominator to determine if the market as a whole is overvalued or undervalued. Today this ratio sits at 26.73, close to the short-term high of 27.2 seen in 2007 and well above its historic average of around 16.

Understanding The Stock Market Bull After Fink Speaks... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Jack_Steiman

This has been one crazy market for quite some time now. The endless overall up trend has been with us for seven plus years. The last two years have been a time for consolidation in to the teeth of some very bad news. When bad news can't sell a market you understand it means that it's simply basing and waiting on the right combination of news to try the next leg up. It finally came in the form some good employment numbers. Job creation reached a level that allowed the bulls to race onward and upward. Prior to that report, we were dealing with a series of bad reports on the Jobs Report, ISM Manufacturing Report, and ISM Services numbers. The market simply couldn't find a catalyst. Earnings were on the decline as well. The market bears tried to get the market down as bad news kept hitting from everywhere, but they just couldn't get the job done consistently. They'd get a nice down move, but couldn't seem to ever follow through. The bulls would come in and save the day.

Capitalism Has Entered a New Era—and Historic Stock Market Investing Returns Are Gone Forever / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: John_Mauldin

We live in interesting times. We continue to see repercussions from Brexit. The other major players—in Europe, China, and Japan—seem to be in a downward spiral. Not to mention, the bubble-like issues we see in Canada and other parts of the world.

The world is quickly getting far more complex… something that central banks’ (and everybody else’s!) models can’t capture. We are tiptoeing into a period of enormous uncertainty.

The Soaring Risk of Flying in Bernanke's Helicopter / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Doug_Wakefield

"Although the term 'helicopter money' is very frequently used in economics, it is doubtful whether such a policy will bring the results people really want. The following example shows why.

Let us assume that the Bank of Japan one day mailed 1 million yen in new bank notes to every Japanese citizen. The person who finds 1 million in his mailbox will probably feel very happy at that moment, because he things he is richer by that amount. Thproblem is what happens next.

Stock Market Exuberant New All Time Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: James_Quinn

The stock market has reached new all-time highs this week, just two weeks after plunging over the BREXIT result. The bulls are exuberant as they dance on the graves of short-sellers and the purveyors of doom. This is surely proof all is well in the country and the complaints of the lowly peasants are just background noise. Record highs for the stock market must mean the economy is strong, consumers are confident, and the future is bright.

New Stock Market Highs Correlate to $57 Trillion in Printed Global Currency Units / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: The_Gold_Report

Precious metals expert Michael Ballanger discusses the relationship of rising money velocity, money printing and new stock market highs.

When people use the term "money," it usually refers to a unit of currency used in the transacting of business and commerce. A woman works cleaning houses for a week and gets paid in a number of currency units and then goes to the supermarket and exchanges those units for food or diapers or medicine. What is left over at the end of the pay period is called "savings," which are allowed to accumulate receiving a modest rate of interest. Around the globe this weekend, a vast number of banks are offering negative returns on savings, such that keeping one's accumulated units of currency in the bank is penalized. The objective of this monetary experiment is to combat the global problem of deflation. Despite $57 trillion of new currency units having been printed since the 2009 financial crisis, global growth has been tepid at best because the velocity of "money" has remained moribund and since all collateral underpinning this massive global debt must not be allowed to depreciate, the central banks have been allowed to engage in a massive, coordinated reflation designed to jumpstart "money" velocity.

Stocks Bear Market Crash Apocalypse Resolves to New All Time Highs! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The stock market commentariat that had convinced themselves all year that a stocks bear market or worse a crash was always imminent, tending to reach their most vocal fever pitched cry's of doom each time stocks bottomed and where BrExit is concerned, well that was expected to be the icing on the bear cake, that if it happened would surely herald an stock market apocalypse. Though of course most never saw brexit coming because the pollsters, markets and bookies ALL got the EU Referendum outcome WRONG which meant that WHEN it happened the expectations of doom reached a new level of intensity. Worse still because FEAR SELLS the usually clueless mainstream press liberally regurgitated and magnified the doom utterance of financial sales industry which ensured few were in a position to capitalise on the subsequent stock rally.

Italy on the Brink of a Full Blown Banking Crisis / Stock-Markets / Financial Crisis 2016

By: Joseph_T_Salerno

As several articles over the past few days have indicated (here, here, here and here), Italy is on the brink of a full-blown banking crisis. Bad debts, or "non-performing loans," held by the banking sector total  360 billion euros, which is a remarkable 17 percent of all the outstanding bank loans in Italy and equal to about one-fifth of the annual Italian GDP. It is also many times the level of bad debt held by Italian banks at the peak of the financial crisis in 2008. Since the beginning of 2016, prices of bank stocks have decreased by more than 50%. In the case of Italy's oldest and most troubled bank, Banca Monte dei Paschi di Siena, its share price has declined more than 75%. It doesn't help that the Italian economy is struggling mightily to recover from the last financial crisis and is still 8% smaller than it was in 2008 and roughly the same size as it was at the end of the twentieth century.

Americans favour Coffee over Financial Freedom / Stock-Markets / Investing 2016

By: Sol_Palha

A little and a little, collected together, becomes a great deal; the heap in the barn consists of single grains, and drop and drop make the inundation. 
Saadi

Towards the end of last year, we published an article titled  Americans favour coffee to stock market investing where we demonstrated that an overwhelming majority drink coffee as opposed to investing in the stock market’ 61% of Americans drink coffee on a daily basis as opposed to the 48% that invest in the market. On aannual basis, Americans spend about $1200 on coffee. If they put this money into the market and allowed compound interest to do its magic, it could grow into a nice tidy sum over a period of 20 years.

Not Too Late For Real Money In A World, Distracted / Stock-Markets / Global Financial System

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning. - Henry Ford

A recent IMF study estimated that the profits of the big banks in the United States are almost entirely due to the government sponsored backstops. It’s not just bailouts, but also cheap credit, and judicial negligence.

Stock market, leading sectors, and the price of Coffee / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2016

By: Chris_Vermeulen

It was a relatively dull session yesterday (Monday July 11th) with stocks gapping higher only to trade sideways up till now. As I talked about in the morning’s video I expected stocks to grind higher, and for vix ETF to keep moving lower for another day or three.

Coffee continues to be on caffeine-high today testing near today’s high, which looks as though it will continue to run higher in the coming days.
