By: Tony_Caldaro

Even the economic news improved somewhat to a balance between positive and negative reports. On the uptick: new/pending home sales, Case-Shiller home prices, durable goods orders, the Chicago PMI and weekly jobless claims ticked down. On the downtick: consumer confidence/sentiment, personal spending, new home prices, the monetary base and the WLEI. For the week the SPX/DOW were +1.95%, and the NDX/NAZ were +1.35%.

Europe Gets What It Wants....Merkel Gives In..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

The only person holding back the Eurozone from flooding the banks in need with cash was Germany's Mrs. Merkel. A smart woman who insisted her country would not support efforts to inflate through the printing of dollars to support financially troubled banks throughout Spain, Ireland, Greece, Portugal and Italy. I guess the pressure became too overwhelming as she did cave in and finally supported those efforts to inflate the banks. She'll be grilled hard as her country will now also pay the price down the road, but the bottom line is she did cave in and she did support the efforts. The market ate it up in a positive way.

Global Markets Pine for the Money Printing Press / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Michael_Pento

The global economy continues to falter and the pace of that slowdown is picking up. Recent data showed that German consumer confidence dropped the most since 1998, as Italian confidence dropped to an all-time record low. The level of Spain's non-performing loans reached the highest since 1994. And Chinese consumer loan demand fell to the lowest since 2004, as their PMI continues to drop further below the line of expansion. To round things out, U.S. job openings fell by 325k, the most since September 2008. Meanwhile, the Philadelphia PMI fell the most in nearly a year and despite record low borrowing costs, Existing Home sales fell 1.5% in May.

Two Year Tech Stock Cycle Nearing a Low / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn July 2010 we published a piece suggesting the two year cycle low in Tech was scheduled to bottom in August. It did, and the stock market soared. This year, two years later, we are expecting it to bottom in July. Typically during bull markets it bottoms in Q3, and in Q4 during bear markets.

Wrong Treatment To The Disease Of Global Financial Crises / Stock-Markets / Banksters

By: Akhil_Khanna

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIntroduction

The seeds of the global financial crisis which were triggered by the collapse of Lehman Brothers in the USA in 2008 had been sown during the last many decades. The basic reason for the emergence of the crisis is the manner in which the financial industry was allowed to grow with minimal regulation and engage in activities which have little to do with their basic function of acting as a bridge between those who have excess funds by accepting deposits and lending to those who invest in economic activities beneficial for the society in return for profit. In the last few decades, the finance industry, apart from the medical and the arms ammunition industry, has evolved to be one of the most powerful and influential industry around the globe.

Euro Summit Gaps Stock Market Lower / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Jack_Steiman

The Euro Summit is upon us with many questions still unanswered, such as how Greece and Spain will receive funds for bailouts being the primary issue at hand. Everyone is looking for Merkel from Germany to step in and support it all. She, however, said over the weekend that she will have none of it. The Eurozone was not happy about this, thus, all of it sold off while we slept last night. This, of course, allowed our stock futures to fall hard into the open today. We gapped down and never looked back. Nothing horrible, but an overall downer of a day for the bulls as it was mostly a gap and run day, instead of the far more bullish gap and churn, which turns red hollow late.

Bernanke Ponders The Financial Crisis Stock Market Plunge / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThree months ago Ben Bernanke gave a series of lectures and defended the Fed’s actions during the financial crisis.   In what was tantamount to a post-crisis victory lap, Bernanke contended that “we did stop the meltdown”, and “we avoided what would have been, I think, a collapse of the global financial system.” These sentiments echoed similar self-congratulatory remarks made by Mr. Bernanke in 2011 and 2010.  For that matter, they mirrored those made by Bernanke as far back as August 2009:

SPX Turns Down, The "Bernanke Put" Won't Happen Here / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis Article-- VIX has now completed a 77.9% wave [2] correction.  A normal Fibonacci correction would be .78.6%.  It appeared that the VIX may have made its correction low on June 11, its Primary Cycle low.  However, The Master Cycle opted for an early low on June 21, which was three weeks earlier than the normal low.  This is very bullish for the VIX, since it presumes 4 months of rally may follow.

Is the Stock Market SPX Index Resuming its Intermediate Downtrend? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Andre_Gratian

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market

SPX: 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 - SPX is probably putting the finishing touches on an intermediate-term bottom.

Stock and Gold Bugs Remember It's Always Darkest Before The Dawn / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: David_Petch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe above proverb refers to the fact that it is always darkest one hour before the sun rises has metaphorical meaning, in that a situation may seem bleak or about as dark as it possibly could get...but soon is about to get better (i.e. Light will pour open and remove all feelings of despair). At present, I think it is safe council to state that every gold bug on the planet is probably sick and tired of waiting for the first glimmer of light on the horizon, hoping that it will soon illuminate and drive away all despair...many on the other hand probably feel a similar feeling to Charlie Loman in the Death of a Salesman who "Remembers the good ol' days" (2001-2003, 2005-2007) as he crashes his car. There are many "shades of grey" out there for how people feel at present (no, the reference has nothing to do about Anastasia or Christian).

Stock Market Neutrality.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Sy_Harding

That's what we're dealing with, a lot of neutral messages. When I studied the charts late in today's session, I noticed many different buy and sell points on all the daily charts. It didn't matter whether I was looking at an index chart, or the chart of any number of individual stocks. They all had mixed messages behind them. For instance, most charts printed inside days meaning the candles from today traded inside the previous day's stick. In addition, they did so near the bottom of yesterday's sticks. They also did so on lighter volume. All of this usually means the trend will follow through again on Monday. However, if I study the MACD's, they look different. They are holding up well with the slow or negative line racing up to the fast or positive line. That usually happens when things are more bullish. There's the problem for playing long or short. It's unclear.

Major Market Hopes Were Dashed, What Now? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2012

By: Sy_Harding

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal markets have rallied for two weeks, which has investor hopes high that the rally marks the end of the market correction that began in March.

But the rally has run into serious problems in the news, as well as technical resistance on the charts that make the thought of the correction already being over questionable to say the least.

Minimize Stock Market Volatility With These Two ETFs / Stock-Markets / Volatility

By: Benjamin_Shepherd

The S&P 500 has given up 7 percent since peaking in April 2012, primarily because of uncertainty regarding Greece’s commitment to the terms of its bailout. 

If a second round of elections in Greece on June 17 fails to produce a government—or if anti-austerity factions gain control—the stage will be set for the country to exit the euro, with a potentially disastrous dom­ino effect across the Continent. The US also faces economic and fiscal challenges, as well as its own contentious elections in November.

Is The Stock Market Rally For Real…Or Just Part Of the Games Bankers Play? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani writes: The markets are rallying, again. Will this time be different? Or is this just another head fake?

The truth is the current rally is not surprising given what's coming out of the G20 meeting, what's likely to come out of the Fed's Open Market Committee meeting today and Jamie Dimon's Congressional testimony yesterday.

Stock Market Rally, Did S&P 13.74 Point Rally Finish the Move? / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere were few "fundamental" reasons to be bullish on U.S. stocks on Friday morning (June 15).

If anything, the news that the U.S. unemployment rose in 18 states in May sounded downright bearish. But stocks rallied anyway -- for a seemingly unlikely reason, explained the pundits: Because all the bad news lately makes it likely that the Fed will step in again.

How Can VIX Get So Low When Market Risk is High? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2012

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Traders are scratching their heads about the dismal showing in the VIX today. How in the world can the VIX get so low when the market is so much at risk? Well, as the saying goes, the market will do what it wants to do. In this case, it is due, not only for a Primary Wave [2] low, but also a Master Cycle low. In Cycles jargon, tomorrow is a Primary Cycle pivot day, as well.

Ending of Extend and Pretend Means Capital Flight, Capital Controls and Capital Fear / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2012

By: Nicole_Foss

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe ending of extend-and-pretend is ushering in a new era of fear and uncertainty which is rapidly evolving into the next phase of the on-going credit crunch.

It is becoming clearer to many that the problems run much deeper than they had perceived, and more people all the time are realizing the systemic nature of the risks we are facing. Fear leads to knee-jerk reactions. In financial markets, it leads to volatility and self-fulfilling prophecies to the downside. It leads to capital flight, and then to capital controls.
