Pakistan Cricket Shame, Floods Disaster Maximum Point of Market Pessimism Is Coming For Investor Opportunity / Stock-Markets / Pakistan

By: Submissions

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBilal Khan writes: Pakistan was again in the news over the weekend but not for the recent floods. Its cricketers were in the headlines and for all the wrong reasons. Commenting now on an ongoing investigation would be premature and would only be fair after the authorities have conducted a comprehensive investigation. However one comment that can be made is that it will further erode what ever credibility the country had left after decades of blatant corruption by its leaders and will make donors already reluctant to give to Pakistan shy away further.

UK Economy Booms Whilst U.S. Stutters, Stocks Fail to Follow Crash Script / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDid the stock market crash Monday ? Nope, Tuesday ? Nope. How about Wednesday, Thursday or Friday ? The Dow closed down 63 points on the week at 10,150 (10,213) which given the much publicised Hindenburg Crash Omen, is not exactly following the script though off course the Hindenburg Omen has plenty of get out of jail cards in the small print which ensures that all eventualities are covered ( The Hindenburg Stock Market Omen Doomed to Crash and Burn? ).

Investors Don’t Get Trapped by Market Micro-Bubbles, the Silent Wealth Killers / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Jared_Levy

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleToday's article is about market bubbles. Right now, you're probably wondering why I am talking about market bubbles when the S&P 500 is trading down 6.5% since the first trading day of January this year, and down 33% from the 2007 highs. On top of that, home prices have fallen 30% (on average) to 2002-2003 levels, and unemployment is nearly 10%. Frankly, most of the globe is struggling to pay its bills. So doesn't all of this mean any kind of market bubble has burst? Well, the answer is, not all of them.

Stock Market Flash Crash Prompts Investors to Flee Equities / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRobert Herz was forced to resign from his job as as chairman of the Financial Accounting Standards Board (FASB) because he insisted that the banks assign a fair value to their assets. That's not what you'll read in the papers, but it's true just the same. Herz was a major proponent of mark-to-market accounting, a simple means of determining the value of a bond or security by comparing the price of similar assets sold at market. In other words, Herz is a defender of universally-accepted accounting principles, which is why he was terminated, er, I mean, resigned. According to the Wall Street Journal:

Stock Market S&P 950, Not so Fast / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe better than expected GDP numbers threw a slight monkey wrench in the trading plan (for you traders out there). I was expecting a gap down open that would break through the 1040 pivot. The plan was to buy into that gap with a stop under the morning intraday low. The market did break slightly below 1040 (1039.70) so in theory if one was quick they could have jumped in right there. I doubt anyone was that quick though so I suspect almost no one caught the exact low. Perfect timing isn’t critical though if this is a daily cycle bottom, as we should have at least 2 to 3 weeks of upside ahead of us. I’m assuming the market doesn’t drop back down to test the lows on next Friday’s jobs report.

Stocks Secular Bull and Bear Markets and the Dark Side of Budget Deficits / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSecular Bull and Bear Markets
It's Not the (Stupid) Economy
The Consequences of a Credit Crisis
The Dark Side of Deficits

In the pre-crisis days, I used to write about things like P/E ratios, secular bull and bear markets, valuations, and all of the things we used to think about in the Old Normal. But what about those topics as we begin our trip through the New Normal? It's time to reconvene class and think through what might change and what will remain the same. I think this will be a fun read - and let me tip my hand. I come out on the side of a new secular bull that gets us back to trend - but not just yet. The New Normal has to have its turn first. (Note: this will print out longer than usual, as there are a lot of charts.)

Private Investors Boycott Stocks, Bernanke Promises Fed Action to Ensure Economic Recovery / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. Economy Grew a Revised 1.6% in Second Quarter - (Bloomberg)  The U.S. economy grew at a 1.6 percent annual rate in the second quarter, less than previously calculated, as companies reined in inventories and the trade deficit widened.

The revised gain in gross domestic product was bigger than the median forecast of economists surveyed by Bloomberg News and compares with a 2.4 percent estimate issued last month, figures from the Commerce Department showed today in Washington. Corporate profits grew last quarter at the slowest rate in a year and employee wages in the prior three months were revised lower.

Stock Market Indices Close Out Week with Strong Snapback Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices had a very strong snapback session to close out the week on apparent short-covering and bargain hunting.

In the morning they opened firm, but then rolled over hard on negative economic news, taking the Nasdaq 100 under 1750 and the S&P 500 under 1045, down near the key 1040 area that was reached last Wednesday. When the NDX made new lows and the SPX failed to confirm and held the earlier support low, that created a positive divergence.

Stock Market Ostrich Investors With Trillions of Dollars of Capital Sat on the Sidelines / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bull Market

By: Zeal_LLC

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOstrich investors are a major driving force in today’s financial markets.  As the name implies, they are hiding their heads in the sand like the popular literary perception of the king of birds.  Burned in 2008’s epic stock-market panic, they have shunned active investing ever since.  Trillions of dollars of their capital languishes idle on the sidelines, earning zero in money markets or near-record-low yields in Treasuries.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStocks Rise On Higher Than Expected US GDPUS stocks were up Friday, sending the Dow Jones back above the 10000 level after numbers for US GDP Q2 economic growth were slightly above analysts expectations. The Dow climbed 44 points, or 0.4 percent, to 10030 on the news. The Dow closed below the psychologically important 10000 mark on Thursday for the first time since early July, due in part to jitters ahead of Friday morning’s report on gross domestic product.

The Upcoming Stock Market 4-year Cycle Bottom / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMany observers have been wondering if the upcoming 4-year cycle bottom in a few weeks will exert a negative impact on stock prices when the previous 4-year cycle bottom in 2006 barely registered. You may recall that the period from August through December of 2006 saw a stellar performance from the market that left many market technicians perplexed as to why the 4-year cycle bottom left no discernible impact on stock prices at that time. Many of them tried to excuse the lack of downward bias in the broad market in the fall of ’06 by saying that the 4-year cycle would bottom later that year, despite the fact that the 4-year cycle is fixed and always bottoms around the end of the third quarter in late September/early October.
