2011 Investment Commentary, Specific Sectors, When to Sell Gold? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: David_Urban

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 will likely start a bit bumpy as the market works off its overbought condition setting the stage for a nice rally to begin in February leading up to the end of QE2 sometime in the second quarter.  The second half of 2011 should feature a sideways move into 2012.

I think Financial stocks will continue to underperform.  Looking back after the tech bubble many companies never saw their stock prices recover (Cisco, Intel, Dell, Yahoo, and Microsoft are examples).  There are still a number of questions concerning foreclosures and a black swan in terms of the balance sheet pricing from the FASB/IFRS.

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis and Forecast for Week Starting 17th Jan / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleUS markets rally for the seventh week in a row, while economic reports continue to be encouraging. On the economic front: the twin Deficits were about unchanged, wholesale inventories and consumer sentiment declined, and the weekly jobless claims came in higher. On the positive side: export/import prices remained positive, along with the PPI/CPI, retail sales, and business inventories. Industrial production and capacity utilization rose, along with the monetary base and the WLEI. Overall a fairly good week!

Bull /Bear Stock Market Relationships and the Existing Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tim_Wood

According to the sentiment of the e-mails I’ve been receiving of late, it seems that the concept of the advance out of the March 2009 low being a bear market rally is becoming harder and harder to understand.    As price moved down into the cyclical lows in late February 2009 I told my subscribers that price was moving into a higher degree low, i.e. the 4-year cycle low, and that the longer the market rallied the more dangerous it would become.  I said this, meaning that the longer the market rallied the more convinced the public would become that THE bottom had been seen.&

Explaining the Heisenberg Omen(s) of Human Action in Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn a recent article, I introduced the possibility that the Heisenberg uncertainty principle provides far more insight for stock market cycle analysis than the infamous Hindenburg Omen. Feedback from readers suggests many appreciated this new line of thinking, while others challenged the proposed application of hard science principles to the softer social science of the study of economic and stock market cycles. In this article, I will further explain precisely what I am proposing about human action, including yours.

This Simple Indicator Could Spell Disaster in the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the 15 years I have been trading the financial markets, I have utilized a plethora of indicators, everything from drawing simple moving averages on charts to finding the correlation between two or more assets, to find an early warning for a rally or sell-off.

The truth is that there is no one magic bullet for timing the market, but at the same time, one simple indicator can be an excellent gauge for market sentiment and short-term changes in financial market direction.

Two of 2011's Surest Bets / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: DailyWealth

Porter Stansberry writes: When I talk about "The End of America," I don't mean the end of our political union (although I won't rule that out). I'm talking about the end of the U.S. dollar as the world's reserve currency.

So how will it unfold? That's what people keep asking me.

Will 2011 Be The Dow’s Best Year Ever? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCould it be? Will it be? I haven’t been this giddy since 1999. Of course, I’m all jacked up on POMO and TOMO and QEs. But think about it. The Dow is already up about 2% for 2011 and January is only half over. If the Dow could go up 4% every month, it would be up 48% on the year. Certainly our Ruler of all things bubbly and bubblicious, Mr. Bernanke, will over shoot a few months and push the Dow up 6% or 8% on some months! What? What’s that? You haven’t heard that the stock market was captured in August of ’07 and it is now the sole contrivance of the wealthy to amass more wealth? What’s that? How are they doing it, you say? Well, first the super wealthy had to take the helm of the world’s largest economies.

Stock Market Rolls Along... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

This is one nasty bull market if you're a bear. There has been no indication that things are about to fall apart from just an overbought perspective. This market definitely needs to sell, but it's just not finding any catalysts at this moment in time. Just the way it is folks. I am expecting this correction but I will not try to time it. That's why I stay long and refuse to short although that's the sexy thing many are now doing because we're due for a nice selling episode. You never front run something you believe will happen. You wait to see the reversal, or you stand aside and stay cash, but you don't run in short just because we're due for something on the down side. This game is so incredibly emotional, and I fully respect everyone wanting to be part of something special, but you have to wait for the market to show its hand and allow yourself to miss the first part of a move so that you can then play more appropriately.

Stocks rise as outflows resume, Gold investors are surprised by the decline. / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNew Year Unemployment Claims Surge.
(ZeroHedge) Thursday's initial claims number throws cold water to all those who expected the trend in claims to be improving. At 445K, this was a huge miss to expectations of 410K, and a major deterioration from last week's (upwardly revised of course) 410K (was 409K before). Elsewhere, continuing claims came at 3,879K on expectations of 4,088K (with the previous naturally revised higher as well from 4,103K to 4,127K). And the kicker: in NSA terms initial claims were a mammoth 770,413, a 191,686 increase in just one week, and the highest NSA number in one year!

Bullish Sentiment Could Dampen Stock Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAfter the close on December 20 with the S&P 500 standing at 1,247, we performed an analysis which led to the conclusion bullish stock market sentiment was not a barrier to further stock gains. Since then, the S&P 500 has gained 3.12% and the Investors Intelligence Advisory Sentiment Bull/Bear Ratio has increased from 2.77 to 3.00. With valuations and market technicals currently stretched, it is a good time to revisit the possible role of sentiment in the weeks ahead.

Stock Market Possibilities for 2011 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street seems particularly giddy entering the New Year, and for good reason: the stock market has had its best two-year performance since 1932. Retail investors are also beginning to shed their bear suits and slowly embrace a bullish posture. For the month of December 2010, a total of $14.9 billion moved out of bond funds while stock funds saw a $5.5 billion net inflow.

“It is unconscionable that the fate of the world economy should be so closely tied to the fortunes of a relatively small number of giant financial firms. If we achieve nothing else in the wake of the crisis, we must ensure that we never again face such a situation.” Ben Bernanke. March 20, 2010

Stock Market Through 1278 SPX.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

The market has been gravitating higher slowly but surely, no question. Over the past many weeks it had set up shop between the gap top low at 1262 and the 1278 as its high. A few tests down at 1262 looked like a breakdown was finally upon us, but that was not to be. There were many test back up to 1278, but failed as well, so it became a chess match between who would make the move first. The bulls pulled off the move today. It wasn't a shocking move higher as we're barely above 1278. Slightly less than half a percent above, but we are above, and that can't be denied by anyone. This opens the door to a move up to the top of the trend line at 1300 on the S&P 500. That chart is there for your viewing this evening. It seems as if this market doesn't waste a point. Although, by no means a guarantee, if the trend line is open to approximately 1300 on the SPX, it seems as if it will find a way to make it there, even if it doesn't hold once it does get there.

Socrates on Portugals Debt Crisis / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Portugal will not request financial aid for the simple reason that it’s not necessary" – Socrates
Of course, that was Jose Socrates, Portugal’s Prime Minister, not Σωκρτης the great Philospoher, who was more famous for saying "False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil" as well as "True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing." More apropos for this morning is the more famous Scocrates’ more famous observation that "True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us."

The Global Economic Crisis: Financial Fraud has Become Increasingly Pervasive / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U6 number fell to 16-7/8% from 17% last month, thus, the real unemployment number is 22-1/4%, off 3/8 of 1 percent in two months. The average duration of unemployment heads back up to a new record 34.2-weeks and when the share of the unemployed ranks looking for a job without success rises 2% to 44.3% you have a problem. It is hardly a winner. The workweek was unchanged at 34.3-hours. The employment rate was 58.3%, the same level it was at late in 1983. In order to re-ascend to peak employment levels 11 million jobs would have to be created. That cannot happen as the transnational conglomerates execute free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. That would be 2.75 million jobs annually over the next four years. Still millions of illegal aliens are streaming across our borders to find work and push American citizens out of their jobs.
