World Stock Market Indices Due for a Correction? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: MarketTimingCycles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world Indices are due for a short-term correction, but the larger trend is still bullish. On January 10th last year we wrote: "The S&P500 has now touched the current upper trend line as formed since early last year. On January 15th 2010 we are also 45 weeks or 225 trading days after the March 2009 bottom. In Gann terms this point in time is typically a hard angle that typically come in as a high."  We now seem to be exactly at the same time for a correction to occur.

Gold and Markets Forecasts 2011 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to 2011 from GoldOz and we wish you a healthy & prosperous year. 

There is an old joke about being kept in the dark and fed manure – about people being treated like mushrooms.  The joke refers to how mushrooms are grown, in moist dark conditions however they are not fed manure anymore …yet people still are.  The knowledge that corporations and governments have been treating clients and their constituents in this manner is perhaps why the Wikkileaks blog is so popular.  Wikkileaks is supported by some high profile people.  It is causing embarrassment to people in high places and is of great interest to large numbers of people.  It appears education and disclosure are well sought – there is big demand.  People need and sometimes want to know the truth and they certainly need to learn financial intelligence.

Stock Market Yearly Cycle Low Approaching / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSometime between early February and early April the market should drop down into a major yearly cycle low. Last year that cycle low came during the first week of February. 

Since the current daily cycle is now in the timing band for a bottom we should see an intermediate top fairly soon.

Why Wall Street's Record Performance Spells Danger For Investors / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: When U.S. taxpayers bailed out Wall Street back in 2008, the consensus was that this Main-Street-led handout would bring down the curtain on a 25-year stretch of rampant - and too often reckless - speculation.

But that hasn't been the case.

By: David_Urban

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEQUITY MARKETS

After two strong years equity markets are sitting in a slightly overbought status.  Technical indicators are flashing 'pause' and sentiment indicators are in areas which usually precede a correction.  Looking back over some historical indicators there is reason to be bullish for 2011.

Germany EWG ETF in Bullish Digestion Period / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the iShares MSCI Germany Index ETF (EWG) has experienced a 5-6% decline during the past week, my pattern analysis argues that all of the action off of the Nov 4 high at 24.92 represents a sideways, bullish digestion period. When complete this should resolve in another thrust to the upside that projects to 27.00-plus in a resumption of the larger bull leg off the May 2010 low at 17.97.

Top 3 Investment Threats and Opportunities for 2011 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 is just underway, and already, confusion reigns. My mother fell on her head at Machu Picchu and some kid in Arizona killed some decent folks in Arizona. My dog is in heat and its summer in Lima. See what I mean?

Ten days into the new year, there has rarely been a time when market commentators have been so thoroughly polarized in terms of the prospect for the immediate future. While the range of optimism to pessimism is exactly as broad as ever, the camps are crowded at either extreme of the scale, with the middle viewpoint, moderate and/or ambiguous, virtually uninhabited.

Europe, Spain and China Setting up Short Plays / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jim_Farrish

Worry over European sovereign debt puts pressure on global stocks. We talked last week about opportunities developing in specific country ETFs on the upside, but the Portugal sovereign debt news today is putting some pressure on stock prices overseas. Europe ETF IEV broke below support at $38.60 today inviting the short sellers to take advantage of the downside risk.

Stock Market Bulls Have Bears on the Run Despite Poor Unemployment Report / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Stocks survived a big test of the winter rally on Friday as they finished a positive week with mild losses.

The Friday session featured a report on non-farm payrolls that came in worse than expected, but not egregiously so. Energy, industrials and utilities fared the best, while financials and telecoms slipped the most. Treasuries blew higher across the board, showing again why we always say that the bonds love misery.

THE EWI ARGUMENT: A Critical Analysis of Robert Prechter and Elliott Wave International (March 2009-Present) / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Steven_Vincent

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSUMMARY

In this article I analyze the recent work of Robert Prechter’s “Elliott Wave International”, evaluating it in terms of the quality of epistemology, methodology, data integrity, interpretation, conclusions, recommendations and results. The analysis is limited in scope to the equities markets since March of 2009. Because of time constraints, counterpoints to much of the EWI argument can only be partially developed here, but I hope to give them a much fuller treatment in my forthcoming book, tentatively entitled, "Apocalypse Not Yet: Wave V and the End of Financialism".

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis and Forecast for Week Starting 10th Jan / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 was off to a good start as equities rallied and economic reports improved. Both the Payrolls report and ADP showed increases in employment, and the unemployment rate dropped. Auto sales, factory orders, construction spending, ISM services/manufacturing, consumer credit, M1-multiplier, and the WLEI all continued to improve. The only negatives were a slight increase in weekly jobless claims and a decline in the monetary base. The market responded with a new uptrend high at SPX 1278, extending the uptrend into its six month. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.95%, and the NDX/NAZ were +2.30%. Asian markets gained 0.5%, European markets gained 0.1%, the Commodity equity group was flat, and the DJ World index was flat. Bonds gained 0.2%, Crude lost 3.3%, Gold slid 3.7%, and the USD gained 2.7%. Next week will be highlighted by the FED’s Beige book, Retail sales and the CPI/PPI.

Stock Market Current Trend and Turning Point / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is nothing complicated or confusing about the current market trend(s). Let's go directly to the SPX Daily Chart, and I'll show you why.

This is a linear chart, with only the closes and not the intra-day highs and lows, making it easier to see the trends. Note that the various trends are all confined to channels which are all labeled according to their time span.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment Reaches Extremus Maximus / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen it comes to investor enthusiasm for this market, there is only one thing I can say: even the extremes have become extreme. This is an high wire act -without a safety net - that I have chosen not to play. The rare exception to too many bulls is that "it takes bulls to make a bull market", and under such conditions, the markets just continue higher despite the wildly bullish sentiment readings. Think 1995, 1998/99, 2003 and 2009 when the extreme bullish sentiment readings didn't see the market correct but just continue higher. Even if this is the scenario that is developing, investor sentiment is at a level of bullishness -extremus maximus - where a pullback in price is usually seen.

Global Stock Market Cycle Forecast 2011 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: David_Knox_Barker

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe job of a stock market cycle tracker and forecaster is far more difficult with trillions of dollars in government intervention and global central bank quantitative easing sloshing around global markets. The liquidity is bidding up everything from oil to coffee to corn, but the cyclical stock market picture is clearing up. There is both good news and bad news regarding global stock market cycles for 2011. It is always better to get the bad news off your chest first, so let’s dispense with the bad news, and move on to the good news.

Dow 15,000 By Year Ben - Uh... I Mean Year End / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Barry_M_Ferguson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAnd....., we’re off! The New Year is off and running and the Federal Reserve is busier than ever. The first day of the new trading year started off with a bang. The Dow bolted up some 100 points as the trading continued from the ferocious last 15-minutes of the last day of trading on New Year’s Eve that I documented in my last post (http://bmfinvest.blogspot.com/2010/12/does-new-year-change-anything.html). The rest of the week turned a bit more pessimistic as Friday was looking downright ugly until one o’clock. What happened at one o’clock? Oh yeah - the great Bernanke finished up his meeting of the Village Idiots (he testified before the bozos we call ‘Congress’) and got back to his real job, juicing the stock markets. If there is anybody that still thinks we really have ‘stock markets’ anymore, you should go read a book or something. All we have is Bernanke and his printing press.

The S&P 500 & Gold Under Pressure on Friday / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: J_W_Jones

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith the holiday season in the rear view mirror and volume slowly creeping back into the marketplace, I can’t help but wonder what lies ahead. The optimist in me is hopeful that the economy will continue to repair itself and the financial issues that plague the federal government, state government, and local governments will just go away as the economy rebounds. The only problem with my hope is that massive debts and deficits do not simply disappear and I fear the problem will be a long and lasting one.

The unemployment rate fell by 0.4 percentage point to 9.4 percent in December, and nonfarm payroll employment increased by 103,000, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics reported today. Employment rose in leisure and hospitality and in health care but was little changed in other major industries.
