Stock Markets, The Big 3 On Deck..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

Next week there will be absolutely no doubt about where this market is headed. Three huge separate events on deck and it starts off Tuesday, when we get the election results the market has been waiting for. It wants to see more of a log jam with more republicans gaining seats. If that takes place, and appears that it will, the market, you would think, will like it. I'll get in to it's built in stuff later on.

U.S. GDP Report Good for Main Street, Maybe Not for Wall Street / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Sy_Harding

The long-awaited report on economic growth in the third quarter was released Friday morning, and was a somewhat pleasant surprise. After declining from an annualized growth rate of 5.0% in the fourth quarter of last year, Gross Domestic Product (GDP) growth declined to 3.7% in the first quarter of this year, and to just 1.7% in the second quarter.

Is the U.S. heading for Zimbabwe Style Hyperinflation? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIs bad news going to be good news?
Last quarter, after several adjustments, it has been decided that our GDP grew at a 1.7% rate.  The general consensus is that this quarter we should be up around 2% but the whisper number is a big miss, down to 1.3%.  Slower GDP growth will be GOOD for the stock market as it gives Ben and Tim the excuse they need to crank up the printing presses for some real Zimbabwe-style inflation.

Outstanding Investor Profit Opportunity as China Goes Gaga for Gaming / Stock-Markets / Sector Analysis

By: Doug_Horning

Doug Hornig, Editor, Casey’s Extraordinary Technology writes: Developing nations are playing technological leapfrog.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn the developed world, when we think of technology, the roots of much of what we do today were born decades, or even a century, ago. While the evolution has been fast paced, the progression from there through today is a straight line from the technologies that preceded them. A television program is still a television program. A phone call is still a phone call. The devices might look different and certainly do more, but the lineage is obvious.

Bulls Still In Control, But the Stock Market Has QE Fatigue / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe quantitative easing (QE) talk on the street this week has been along the lines of (a) is quantitative easing baked into asset prices?, (b) will the Fed’s announcement on November 3rd trigger a “sell the news” event, (c) the perception of too much QE could spark inflation fears and push interest rates up, and (d) too little QE could result in a “disappointment sell-off” in stocks and commodities.

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Fundamental and technical factors for gold are now in total harmony and gold is entering a virtuous circle that will drive the price up at its fastest pace since this bull market started in 1999.

It is a fact that gold in US dollars (and many other currencies) has gone up 400% in eleven years or 16% per annum annualized.

Is the Fed Plunge Protection Team Manipulating the Stock Market? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: EWI

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleRumors are, the U.S. government "is propping up the stock market."

'By far, the most frequent question we've been asked recently at EWI's Message Board is this: "What is your take on the persistent internet chatter that the Federal Reserve is holding up the stock market via QE2, POMO, etc.? How can stocks ever decline again if the Fed is in control?" Here is an eye-opening chart that will help shed more light on this issue. Read more.

High Frequency Traders Manipulating Stocks Futures, Options, Bonds, Currency and Commodities Markets / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Washingtons_Blog

As I noted earlier today, high frequency traders trade not only stocks, but also futures, options, bonds and currency:

We know that high frequency trading is used to manipulate the stock market. The prevalence of high frequency trading in other markets means that it might be used to manipulate those markets - perhaps virtually all markets - as well.

Ultra Low US Inflation Makes QE A Markets Slam Dunk / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleU.S. stocks fell marginally on Thursday, weighed down by 3M who drove industrial shares lower after cutting its profit forecast, helping erase an early gain triggered by Exxon Mobil’s better-than-estimated earnings report. 3M sank 5.9% for it’s biggest loss since February 2009, after saying full-year earnings will be 6 cents lower than previously forecast. And Halliburton dropped 8% as a report cited unstable cement the company recommended to cap BP Plc’s Gulf of Mexico oil well as a factor in the spill. But Exxon bucked the downtrend and rose 0.8% as growing global fuel demand helped boost earnings.

The Fed Underwrites Asset Price Explosion / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"That the economists...can explain neither prices nor the rate of interest nor even agree what money is reminds us that we are dealing with belief not science." ~ James Buchan, Frozen Desire (1997)

The Federal Reserve is in disarray. Unsure of whether its QE2 strategy (quantitative easing - second round) should be tabled (see speeches of Thomas Hoenig, president of the Kansas City Federal Reserve Bank) or if it should pump $10 trillion into the economy (the unsolicited advice from economic columnist Paul Krugman), the New York Federal Reserve Bank has now asked bond dealers what it should decide at its upcoming November 3 meeting. ["Fed Asks Dealers to Estimate Size, Impact of Debt Purchases."]. Since it is the belief in the integrity and competence of the Fed that backs the dollar, asking Wall Street what it wants is another reason to sell dollars.

2011 Boom Time for Businesses that Profit From the Suffering of Others / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePlease Baby, One More Chance - That is how Jon Stewart summed up the Democrats' strategy for the President last night.  It was a great interview and I won't rehash it here but it's well worth watching.   At this point, it's very likely the Democrats keep the Senate and the President made several mentions of the Senate rules that have allowed the Republicans to filibuster over 90% of legislation brought before the Senate in the past two years, which has ground the Government to a virtual halt and prevented the Democrats from advancing their agenda.  I'm sure if you are a Conservative you think that's a great thing, but it's not Democracy - it makes a mockery of the process.  If things work out, the Dems plan to change the rules of the Senate when the Senate disbands for the elections after which point it will only take a simple majority vote to pass the laws.

Stock Market Sells Hard Early...Rallies Late..Nasdaq Green / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010

By: Jack_Steiman

And this is what normally happens in markets that are trending higher. The Nasdaq, or higher risk stocks, usually do better and today was no exception. On a percentage basis the Nasdaq held up significantly better than the rest of the major sectors within the market. The market was due to sell some based on some overbought daily index charts. Lots of 70 RSI's out there. The doji on Monday was a predictor of some selling, although it took two days instead of one to get going. Not much selling yet though in the world of technology.

What is Quantitative Easing? Fed’s Perspective and Writings / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA Wall Street Journal article (10/27/10) on quantitative easing (QE) hints the Fed will take a middle of the road approach in terms of the size and duration of QE2. As we would expect, the stock and commodity markets’ initial reaction is negative. A middle of the road approach to QE seems counter intuitive to the Fed’s own historical analysis of why quantitative easing was ineffective in Japan. In CCM’s July 2010 review of James Bullard’s Seven Faces of “The Peril”, our read between the lines interpretation of Bullard’s take on QE included:

Imminent Big Bank Death Spiral Means Gold Price Will Sky Rocket / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2010

By: Jim_Willie_CB

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe mortgage & foreclosure scandal runs so deep that ordinary observers can conclude the US financial foundation is laced with a cancer detectable by ordinary people. The metastasis is visible from the distribution of mortgage bonds into the commercial paper market, money market funds, the bank balance sheets, pension funds under management, foreign central banks, and countless financial funds across the globe. Some primary features of the cancerous tissue material are mortgage bond fraud, major securities violations, absent linkage to property title, income tax evasion, forged foreclosure documents, duplicate property linkage to single mortgage bonds, NINJA (no income, no job or assets) loans to unqualified buyers, and more. In fact, more is revealed it seems each passing week toward additional facie to high level and systemic fraud. The world is watching. The growing international reaction will be amplified demand for Gold, from recognition that the USDollar & USEconomy have RICO racketeering components extending to Wall Street banks and Fannie Mae mortgage repositories.

What Does Doctor Copper Say on the Health of the Economy? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2010

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThey call it "Doctor Copper" because copper pricing is a pretty good indicator of economic health.  It's more of a demand metal than gold or silver and hard to fake and there aren't any silly ETFs stockpiling it although China has socked away a full-year's supply, which has given copper a very false sense of demand while our masters hoarded the World's substantial excess capacity at an average of less than $2.50 per pound.  China is up 52% on their investment, not bad considering they're holding 300,000 tons of it.

The Market Impact of $100 Billion a Month of Quantitative Easing / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

Wall Street is going wild with new quantitative easing talk.  However, as the Street moves to front-run Ben Bernanke, one perspective is very much understood: QE2 will be nothing like we've ever seen before.  The new quantitative easing will be monstrous, persistent, and of a size, scope and direction never before seen.
