Best Stock Market Weekly Gain Since July 2013 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The pre-market announcement of new jobless claims continues to beat expectations with its four-week moving average now the lowest since early October of 2007, two months before the last recession. Despite the good claims number, the S&P 500 opened fractionally lower with some options expiration volume and sold off to its modest -0.30% intraday low 25 minutes later. The index slowly recovered to its 0.39% intraday high early in the final hour of trading. It closed with a trimmed gain of 0.14%, the fourth day of gains and a hefty 2.71% advance for the holiday-shortened week — the best weekly since the week after Independence Day in 2013.

Bank Depositor Bail-Ins and Real Assets vs Liability-Based Assets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Dan_Amerman

Bail-ins are a new way of "rescuing" banks and other financial organizations that have been sweeping around the world, even as they rewrite the rules for investors and depositors.

Bail-ins have already occurred in Cyprus with their banking system, as well as with the retirement system in Poland. The European Union is on board in rapidly implementing bail-in standards, and they are under intensive scrutiny by regulators in the United States, with ratings on some major US bank securities already being changed in anticipation of the potential for bail-ins. Canada has announced its intentions in this area as well, and Japan is moving rapidly.

One of Harry Dent’s Three Keys to Market Prediction is Cycles / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Survive-Prosper

Harry Dent writes: I learned three crucial principles early on in my forecasting career.

The first is that the economy is a dynamic play between opposite principles.

The second is that natural, cyclical forces have an unstoppable effect on markets and economies, regardless of what we do.

Investors Ignore Frightful Russia, Europe Geopolitics / Stock-Markets / GeoPolitics

By: John_Browne

When the former Soviet Union collapsed almost 25 years ago, most global strategic forecasters assumed that the U.S. would adapt pragmatically to her new status of sole world superpower. Instead she has pursued a variety of misguided nation-building adventures and has largely shrunk from her primary responsibility of neutralizing the ambitions of petty dictators around the world. From this perspective, America's multi-generational expenditures on military personnel and equipment has become more of a stealth economic stimulus program rather than an insurance policy for global stability.

High-Frequency Insider Trading / Stock-Markets / HFT

By: BATR

No one has ever claimed that the financial markets are a level playing field. Equities, bonds, currencies, options and futures are not arenas that operate by equivalent standards for all parties. Great fortunes were built not by chance, but on superior information, known to the few. Professional traders are not risk gamblers, but operate on the premise of special advantage. Through advance and proprietary techniques that reduce exposure hazards and provide exclusive head start triggers, which virtually guarantee profits, the elite firms dominate Wall Street.

Stock Market Flash Crash Alert! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

I have been attempting to find the reason for the triple bottom at 1814, 1815 and 1816. The best I can figure is that SPX is finding support at the 120-day moving average and Wave [ii] is expanding for another challenge of the trendline. It appears to be a desperate situation. The powers that be managed to re-cross the trendline in February, so there may be an attempt to duplicate that event.

Stock Market Cycles Middle Sections / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Ed_Carlson

An advancing Middle Section from early 2009 (top) pointed to two separate highs last week. The definition of a Middle Section is a period of time in which the Dow's rate of advance slows relative to what comes both before and after it. The two measuring points are points E and C. Point E is always the second-to-last rally in a Middle Section. Point C is the day the Dow drops down from a minor topping formation and begins the decline into the low of the Middle Section at point D. In this case, points C and D are identical.

Fed Rigs Markets, Not the Flash Boys / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Michael_Pento

There’s been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of high-tech front running. However, the real problem with the stock market—and the economy as a whole—isn’t the fact that HFT skims pennies off transactions from institutional traders; but rather that the Fed has rigged interest rates and asset prices to the extent that investors can no longer distinguish reality from fiction.

Flash Crash, Rigged Markets - What’s the Frequency Zenith? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: John_Mauldin

By Grant Williams

WARNING: This week’s Things That Make You Go Hmmm... is going to run a little longer than usual, I’m afraid, so if you have some time to kill, strap yourself in for the ride.

Yes. I have read it.

For the last couple of weeks those have been the five words I have used the most — by a country mile.

The second most-used five-word combination during that time has been “I know, what a tool.”

Stock Market Gap Up Failure But Positive Divergences In Place...Will It Matter? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

It should. Those short-term charts have some pretty compressed down oscillators that normally give a bounce, especially when they have a positive divergence in place. We have that here and, while we can't rule out a complete crater down, I don't think the market is quite ready for the next leg lower. Sure, in time, but not right here although you don't let your guard down and you avoid froth stocks like you would the plague. No reason to be involved with those types of stocks, even if we get the bounce. While this divergence gives hope for a short-term bounce, the medium term looks poor for the bulls at this moment in time. Things can always change, but the charts are suggesting lower in time. But again, I don't think so right away. We'll have the answer to that soon enough.

Stock Market - Is Something Nasty About to Happen? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

This morning’s rally fell short of its targets. This afternoon the SPX almost fell out of bed, but rallied in nine waves (impulsive) into the final hour to close beneath this morning’s highs. Folks, this has the look of a running correction, where sub-Minute Wave (c) is the shortest wave in the correction. If so, we may see the bottom fall out of the market overnight.

Greece, Turkey, We're Shuffling The Cards on Our Europe Investing Play / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Frank_Holmes

Did you know that over the last year the Greek stock market is up roughly 45 percent? The country that many believed would never recover from a six-year recession is now making astounding strides, recently being added to the MSCI Emerging Markets Index at the end of 2013.

As I've witnessed new strength from this "comeback country," along with a rise in foreign investment into emerging markets as a whole, our investment team is currently strategizing to adapt our game to new European plays. Here are the game changers we see:

Is The Stock Market Plunge Over Yet? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion short positions are still favored (stop-loss at 1,850, short-term profit target at around 1,800, S&P 500 index), and they have been already profitable.

Our intraday outlook is now neutral, as the market may consolidate after selling off recently, and our short-term outlook remains bearish, following breakdown below March-April consolidation:

Gold, Crude Oil and SP500 Elliott Wave Patterns / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Gregor_Horvat

S&P500 has turned nicely to the downside last week from 1865/1870 resistance area where wave 2/B completed a corrective rally. Market already reached a new swing low but based on downside fib. projections and strong bearish momentum price could be moving down in wave 3 towards 1765 zone. Only rally above the upper resistance line of a current downward channel would put market back in bullish mode.
