Stock Markets Continue to Leveitate as Money Printing Trumps Fundamentals / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStock markets around the world continue to levitate despite the fact that the fundamentals behind the global economy continue to deteriorate.

U.S. second quarter GDP was significantly revised downward last week from the previously reported 1.7%, to just 1.3%. The paltry 1.3% reading on GDP followed a first quarter print that was already an anemic 2%. Also reported last week was the worsening state of consumer’s income. Their take home pay (after taxes and inflation are considered) dropped 0.3% in August, as their savings rate fell to just 3.7%, from 4.1% during the prior month. Another worrisome report showed manufacturing activity in the Chicago region contracted for the first time in three years in the month of September, according to the MNI Chicago Report released on Friday.

By: DeviantInvestor

Stock Sentiment Improving.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

It does get boring when you have to deal with a market that whipsaws about on a daily basis. But the real question is what is the message that this whipsaw is representing. Some would interpret this as bearish behavior, while others would say they just can't figure it out. The masses will always turn negative when markets stop moving higher on a regular basis, especially when you consider the news that sits out there every day of our lives. We hear so much about the economic turmoil throughout the world. That starts to get engrained in our brains, thus, when markets correct, it feels like it must be something other than a healthy pullback to unwind things.

Nouriel Roubini Says Too Big To Fail Banks Are Worse Than Before / Stock-Markets / Banksters

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNouriel Roubini and Ian Bremmer, president of Eurasia Group, sat down with Tom Keene and Sara Eisen on "Bloomberg Surveillance" this morning to talk the global economy and U.S. politics. Roubini said that too big to fail banks are "worse than before" and the only solution is for them to "break up."

Bremmer said that if Obama wins the election, it is "not primarily because Romney is a horrible candidate," but because of three people: John Roberts, Angela Merkel and Ben Bernanke.

By: Bloomberg

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSteve Schwarzman, Chairman and CEO of Blackstone, sat down with Bloomberg News' Jason Kelly and said that election scrutiny of private equity may pay off: "There's a point of view that these business have performed very well for institutions...Ironically, it gave the public and other people a chance to think through these arguments."

Schwarzman also said, "We have not seen any of the blow back that you might expect."

Stock Market Panic Scenario Developing / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

The Scenario that I discussed last night is playing out.  Remember, this formation is comprised of zigzags, or a-b-c waves.  This morning’s pop is a B wave.  We will have confirmation of that once SPX declines below 1440.98. 

This decline will be the wake-up call, but many will fall back asleep when a strong 61.8% retracement from the 50-day moving average (1413.99) back to mid-cycle resistance at 1450.45 follows.

Kondratieff, Solar Cycles and Markets / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: John_Hampson

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKondratieff was a Russian economist who argued that there was a long sine wave cycle in the economy lasting around 60 years broken down into 4 seasons each lasting around 15 years. There proposed reason for the cycle is…. other cycles. In other words, cycles of demographics, credit cycles, capital investment cycles and more, generate these long repetitions over time. Clearly that’s slightly unsatisfactory, unless we can explain the cycles of the source phenomena. Today, I am going to argue that Kondratieff cycling actually reflects solar cycling.

Stock Market Scenario Favours Continuing Decline / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over) there will be another steep and prolonged decline into late 2014. It is probable, however, that the steep correction of 2007-2009 will have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 120-yr cycle.

SPX: Intermediate trend - The Fed has extended the SPX intermediate uptrend, but for how long?

Socialist Global Central Bank Crime Syndicate QE-4-Ever Inflation Theft / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt is barely four weeks since the European arm of the global central bank crime syndicate (ECB) announced its policy of wanting to print unlimited euro's to monetize bankrupting PIIGS debts that was welcomed by the markets who's participants would be lining up to offload PIIGS bonds bought at far higher interest rates (lower prices) onto predominantly German tax payers because it is Germany that backs the Euro as a sound currency rather than the Greek or Spanish versions of the Zimbabwean Dollar.

Probability Theory and Retirement Portfolios, Jumping into the Suicide Pool / Stock-Markets / Pensions & Retirement

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“By ‘uncertain’ knowledge, let me explain, I do not mean merely to distinguish what is known for certain from what is only probable. The game of roulette is not subject, in this sense, to uncertainty; nor is the prospect of a Victory bond being drawn. Or, again, the expectation of life is only slightly uncertain. Even the weather is only moderately uncertain. The sense in which I am using the term is that in which the prospect of a European war is uncertain, or the price of copper and the rate of interest twenty years hence, or the obsolescence of a new invention, or the position of private wealth owners in the social system in 1970. About these matters there is no scientific basis on which to form any calculable probability whatever.”

Stock Market Ready For the Next Wave Higher? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: WavePatternTraders

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe corrections that I was looking for finally started to correct last week, although it started a little later than I initially figured, it finally caught up to the other markets.

I have been using the forex markets for a while now for clues to the cycles and wave patterns with the US markets, we went into last Sunday looking for a reversal on the ES e-mini and head lower to what I think is a 4th wave pull back from the June 2012 lows.

Stock Market Forecast for the Coming Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Manas_Banerji

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article Now words of concern are coming from different authorities on the significance of latest QE-3 in US. One thing is sure that market has not welcomed it with bumper outcomes or as I said in past that it has already discounted it. Some housing reports from US were better but may be market is waiting for monthly jobs report which is due in coming week. Markets need an assurance from both sides of the Atlantic. Market will be seriously expecting stimulus from China in coming days, especially after the report of manufacturing contraction. In the last day results of stress tests of Spanish banks were better but unless their main problems are not getting any solution, market will not show different atmosphere.

Stock Market Quarter End Squaring Before the Damn Bursts / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have repositioned the EW structure to simplify it a bit. Today’s rally overlapped wave (1), so yesterday’s decline can only be another wave 1 of a smaller degree. That by no means suggests that the wave itself must be smaller.

What is the Dry Bulk Shipping Industry BDI Index Saying? / Stock-Markets / Global Economy

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDuring the past decade or so nearly every sector of the transporation industry has run into serious Secular cycle problems. First it was the Airlines, then Trucking, then the Autos, and now Shipping. While the first three sectors appear to be in some early stages of recovery. The Shipping sector has yet to find the bottom. During the 2000′s demand-driven commodity boom, shipping rates skyrocketed and new ships were coming online every month. After the 2008 collapse in demand and commodity prices, the shipping industry found itself dealing with much lower rates and huge excess shipping capacity. During the past four years some shipping companies have been forced into bankruptcy, some are facing bankruptcy, and others a struggling along with high long term debt. To reverse this downward cycle, demand has to rise along with shipping rates while industry consolidation continues.

Stock Market Erasing the "Easing" Gains / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCourtesy of Doug Short. : The S&P 500 logged its fifth consecutive daily decline and seventh of the past eight sessions. The index closed the day with a moderate loss of 0.57%. What’s particularly interesting is a snapshot of the index showing the twin rallies of September — the first dating from September 6th after Mario Draghi unveiled the ECB plan to save the euro. The second, of course, was the announcement of QE3 on September 13th. The index peaked the following morning. We’ve since erased a bit over half the gains.

Stock Market Selling To Unwind Continues.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

And that's really good news if you're bullish on the market. It's unhealthy to stay overbought for too long as you have to sell at some point to alleviate some complacency and constant 70, or higher, RSI readings. We have stayed near 70 RSI for a week, or so, and if you go back three weeks, most of that time was spent near the 70 RSI level on basically all of the important index daily charts. Not good bigger picture. You want things to sell so folks get bearish, and so we can get those RSI's down to the 50 area. That's just what's taking place now. The Nasdaq is actually a few points below that 50 RSI mark. How fast you can get there with a 2-4% pullback off the top. The Dow and S&P 500 are averaging near 50, and this is good as it washes out optimism. We can sure use that for a few weeks, if not longer.
