U.S. Economy Still on Shaky Foundations, Gold Targets $1600 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Rosanne_Lim

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn an innovative TV commercial for Barclays Bank, a man walks down on Wall Street but discovers that nearly everything is a fake movie set. The huge investment houses and international banks are all made of paintings on cloth or Styrofoam while the people are mannequins. The nightmare ended with the man finding one real bank which is Barclays Bank.

Obama Tax Deal Sets the Stocks Bull Running / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: U.S. President Barack Obama's tax deal has yet to pass Congress, but the compromise - hatched as an appeasement to Republican opposition - already has had an effect on the currency and stock markets.

What's more is the deal looks as though it could offer a significant impetus for the U.S. economy as we move into 2011.

Stock Market Indices Close Mixed in Last Hour Sell-Off / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices ended mixed on the session after a last-hour sharp sell-off peeled back a vast majority of the gains and closed the indices right at the lows for the day.

The day started out with a gap up. They then backed and filled, held support, and went to new highs the entire rally, reaching 2225 on the Nasdaq 100 and nearly 1247 on the S&P 500.

Stock Market Snaps Some Late..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

Sometimes you get too complacent and you have to pay a small price for that. For weeks now, we have seen the bull-bear spread get a bit out of hand on the too many bulls side of the ledger. To add to that, we are now seeing many daily put-call readings below .60. Anything below that is a red flag. On the equity side of the put-call ratio we are now seeing readings at .30. That is just not sustainable for further market upside. The end of the day today saw this kick in as the markets finished on their lows, well off the highs of the day. This too complacent situation is not the kiss of death for the market. Not by any means. It simply means the market has some cooling off to do to unwind the overbought daily and short-term charts. A deeper heavier sell is always possible, and, quite frankly, would be in the market's best interest, but the bull phase we're in is very powerful, thus, I'm not sure we get anything terrible from here, but the more we sell the better off we'll be for sure.

Just Another Manic Market Monday – Stagflation Now Official in China / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWheeee, everything must be great! 
We are crushing our levels as the market flies ever higher.  Our 11,500 target on the Dow looks sure to be tested and we’re already flipping bullish with our "Breakout Defense" trades, in which our goal is to make 5,000% in 5 trades or less.  We are not ashamed to jump on the bullish bandwagon – if they are giving away money, we’ll stand in line with everyone else, only we’ll take a larger share – thank you very much.  We certainly know how to use leverage just like a Bankster – we have a spread and we’re not afraid to use it!

The Stock Markets are Celebrating but Commodities are Clueless / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Bari_Baig

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe optimism today moved east to west as Chinese stocks which rose on Friday, rose the second day after Peoples Bank of China opted not to increase the interest rate as the street expected a hike however PBoC increased the reserve requirement on six of the largest banks of China. Nonetheless, no interest rate hike meant a green signal for the bulls to begin their rampage and this too is now visible in the U.S market.

The Most Important Stock Market Chart of the Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEarly last week I gave you four reasons to buy the S&P 500 market (SPX or SPY), and hopefully you had the chance to participate in the market's recent gains. Aside from the somewhat positive fundamentals of both the macroeconomic improvements and individual companies' improved fiscal health, we have year-end window dressing and some good old statistical (and superstitious) beliefs working in your favor, especially if you are a bull.

Stock Market Rally Elliott Wave Trend Target / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dr_John_Trapp

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is a lot of Bull in the market. My first chart – the Weekly – gives the Big Picture so we can see what our overarching market opinion needs to be. Look at all the Bullishness on this chart: 1. ES above the 15EMA, 50MA and 200MA, 2. all but the 200MA have positive slopes and the 200MA is flattening, 3.ES is in W3 of W5, 4. ES consolidated below the 61.8% retracement level and began peeking above it on Friday (still in area of resistance though!), and 5. typical targets above the current high are indicated on chart – including MOB.

U.S. Stock Market Reaches a Pivotal Point as Goldman Sachs Forecasts 2011 Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Stocks clicked around the flat line much of the past week until the tumblers of the lock finally fell into place and prices were freed to go higher on Thursday and Friday.

The Standard & Poor's 500 Index quietly gained 1.2% over the week to close at a new two-year high, while the Nasdaq Composite Index rose 1.7% to a three-year high and the Russell 2000 small-caps rose 2.7%.

Investing for Profit in the Russian Mafia States Stock Market, Goodbye Chinese Century? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWikileaks recently released U.S. Embassy cables that contained accusations of Russia being a defacto Mafia State that has ceased to be a democracy and is run by the secret services on behalf of an Oligarchy. Much of which comes as nothing of a surprise to either the Russian people, business men or foreign investors who know that whilst doing business with Russia can prove highly profitable, however investors and business people have to be nimble footed by being prepared to pull their funds out at short notice, which mean investors need to be invested in highly liquid funds that aim to track or better the general Russian stock indices such as the RTS stock market index rather than in illiquid individual stocks.

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis and Forecast for Week Starting 13th Dec / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnother positive week for US equities as the SPX/NDX/NAZ all made new bull market highs. Economic reports were nearly all positive. The only negatives were an increase in the budget deficit and a downtick in the M1 multiplier. On the positive side, the trade deficit improved along with import/export prices and weekly mortgage applications. Consumer credit expanded, consumer sentiment improved; wholesale inventories, the monetary base and the WLEI all rose. Also weekly jobless claims and excess reserves declined. These reports continued the 2010 second half trend of an improving, not deteriorating, economy.

Quantitative Easing Financial Markets Train Smash Coming / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Brian_Bloom

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this analyst’s view, it is only a matter of time before the folly of Quantitative Easing becomes transparent to everyone.  That time may be closer than most people think.

Here is a quote from an article entitled “Investors Hold Biggest Commodity Positions On Record; Viral Nonsense About Silver” written by Mike Shedlock.

U.S. Interest Rates, the Fed and Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf late it seems that rising interest rates and the Fed’s ability to “keep rates low” have become a focal point for many of the news commentators.   The vast majority of the public believes that the Fed is actually controlling interest rates and as a result that they are controlling the credit markets as well as the equity markets.  I am about to show you the proof that the Fed follows the short-term credit market and that in reality they do not lead.  The data simply does not support the widely held belief that the Fed is in “control” of the markets.    I realize that this may come as a shock to you, but reality is what it is.  The data speaks for itself.

SPX Stock Market Rally Near Completion, Is the FDIC Out of Cash? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

November Budget Deficit $150.4 Billion, Worse Than $138 Billion Consensus, Biggest November Deficit On Record
(ZeroHedge) The Treasury has released the November deficit, which at $150.4 billion was about $12 billion worse than expected. Total receipts were $148 billion, of which individual income taxes were $64.3 billion, while the government actually refunded $3.1 billion for corporate taxes in the month. While cumulative receipts since the start of the new fiscal year are better than in the prior year period ($135.7 billion compared to $109.1 billion), it is the expense side that is far more important: in November the government spent $299.4 billion, the bulk of which going to the Department of Health and Human Services ($72 billion), social security ($64 billion), and Defense ($57 billion).

Stock Market Higher..Getting Overbought Again.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

The market continues its slow and steady grind higher. Small candle sticks along the way aren't great, but it is managing to move higher. The up trend continuing, but unfortunately, the daily charts are all near, or actually at, overbought on those daily charts with stochastic's in the 90's and RSI's in the 68 to 74 range. 74 on the iShares Russell 2000 Index (IWM), or small caps, while the Nasdaq is basically at 70. S&P 500 and Dow right there as well. Grinding new highs as we move in to overbought isn't the best action for the bulls. We are making slight new breakouts but not in a fashion that suggests too much more from here. The NDX has major resistance at 2239, or roughly 1%, from here. Not sure we can get it, but you give the benefit of the doubt to the bulls due to the overall up trend in place.

Inflation Cures What It Doesn’t Kill / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe US and China seem to be at opposite polarity. The US rulers are trying to inflate the economy and thereby reflate the stock indices. China is trying to deflate the economy and thereby restrain their stock index. To Ben Bernanke’s credit, he has been specific about his desire to see inflation rise in the US. To his discredit, real inflation is already locked in with a rear naked choke hold that is turning the consumers face blue already.

Exiting Fixed Income Bonds and Moving into Equities / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Mike_Paulenoff

A very quiet day, but the sellers are MIA -- at least for the time being. The enclosed comparison chart perhaps sheds some light on what is going on - bond prices continue to press lower concurrent with bouyant (grinding higher) equity prices, which suggests that money is exiting fixed income into equities.
