Urgent Financial Self-Defense and Massive Profit Opportunities / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Weiss writes: We are on the verge of some of the greatest market convulsions of a lifetime.

And we're already seeing the first symptoms: Oil surging to all-time highs … gold making a beeline for $800 per ounce … long-term bonds suffering their worst one-day decline since 2003 … and behind it all, the US dollar getting slammed day after day, now within just an inch of its lowest level in history.

That's why we just held our Emergency Video Summit. And that's why we created this 14-page gala issue of Money and Markets …

US Banks Brace for Financial Storm Surge as Dollar Plunge and Credit System Panic / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Whitney

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy now, you've probably seen the photos of the angry customers queued up outside of Northern Rock Bank waiting to withdraw their money. This is the first big run on a British bank in over a century. It's lost an eighth of its deposits in three days. The pictures are headline news in the U.K. but have been stuck on the back pages of U.S. newspapers. The reason for this is obvious. The same Force 5 economic-hurricane that just touched ground in Great Britain is headed for America and gaining strength on the way.

On Monday night, desperately trying to stave off a wider panic, the British government issued an emergency pledge to Northern Rock savers that their money was safe. The government is trying to find a buyer for Northern Rock.

Northern Rock Bank Rescue Could Turn Into a Financial Crash on the Scale of Black Wednesday / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleHere Comes A Whale - My friends have at GaveKal have been whale watching for some time. But not for Blue whales or in an ocean. There theory is that Central banks keep throwing dynamite (in terms of liquidity) into the ocean during credit problems, watching little fish die and don't stop until a whale floats to the surface, thereby giving a signal that the credit crisis is close to being over. They think they have spotted that whale.

This week in a very interesting and decidedly different Outside the Box, Charles Gave writes about the current liquidity crisis and the problems surfacing in England. Remember, it was problems in Asia and then Russia that created the problems in 1998. We should all pay attention to what is going on. Are there more whales getting ready to float to the top?

Housing Market Fire Sales - Fingers of Instability Series Part Six / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn This Issue – 5 Fingers

  • FIRE SALES!
  • The Silence is Deafening, Getting Ready to Lie With Numbers, Again!
  • Are the Stock Markets Just Off Their Highs or Just Off Their Lows?
  • Pigs in the Investment Python
  • Crude Realities

FIRE SALES!

Little reported in this week's news was the Fire Sale Hovnanian Homebuilders conducted over the weekend. Offering 30% discounts on their new homes as they headed for the sidelines before their peers do. It is an act of yelling “FIRE IN A THEATRE”. Please understand that prices are set at the margin, in other words, the value of your holdings are determined by the last price at which they were transacted. In this example with Hovnanian it works out this way: Homes were sold at 30% discount to reduce inventories and to satisfy creditors that were getting nervous and demanding payment.

Northern Rock Bank Run, Broker Recommendations and House Price Crash / Companies / Financial Crash

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhilst the run on the Northern Rock Bank continues during weekend openings, the same brokers and the mainstream financial press that were recommending buy and hold on the stock throughout the year are still dishing out advice on what savers and investors should now do, again with a bullish tinge. With every other paragraph containing words such as bid target, despite the fact that there's an ongoing run on the bank and liquidity has dried up in the market place so exactly where the financing will come from is anyone's guess. Additionally it will take many years for the public to gain confidence in the brand name 'Northern Rock', after watching endless news reports of savers lining up at high street branches throughout the UK to withdraw their funds in sheer panic.

The Black Swan Impacts on the Global Financial System / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: John_Mauldin

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn this issue:
The Black Swan
Mediocristan versus Extremistan
When "Because" Isn't Enough
Gliding Into Disorder

"A similar effect is taking place in economic life. I spoke about globalization in Chapter 3; it is here, but it is not all for the good: it creates interlocking fragility, while reducing volatility and giving the appearance of stability. In other words it creates devastating Black Swans. We have never lived before under the threat of a global collapse. Financial institutions have been merging into a smaller number of very large banks. Almost all banks are now interrelated. So the financial ecology is swelling into gigantic, incestuous, bureaucratic banks (often Gaussianized [bell curve] in their risk measurement)-when one falls, they all fall.

Northern Rock - Britain 's Bank Run Coming to Main Street Soon? / Companies / Financial Crash

By: Adrian_Ash

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

"...The queues outside British bank Northern Bank have nothing to do with subprime US home loans. But they have everything to do with today's US banking model..."

ON WEDNESDAY THIS WEEK the UK mortgage bank Northern Rock ran a banner advertisement across the bottom of The Daily Telegraph 's front page. It promised 6.30% interest on cash deposits, more than 250 basis points above the average rate-of-return offered on time deposits by UK banks in August.

Gold Spikes for British Investors as Run On Northern Rock Bank / Companies / Financial Crash

By: Adrian_Ash

SPOT GOLD PRICES slipped against the US Dollar early Friday, bouncing off Thursday's low at $704.50 but testing the week's highs for British investors as long queues formed outside branches of Northern Rock, the UK 's fifth largest mortgage lender.

Despite having just 0.24% of its assets exposed to the subprime US housing market, Northern Rock's stock plunged by one quarter at the London Stock Exchange in early trade after it said the Bank of England is stepping in to support it with a short-term loan as "lender of last resort."

Financial Meltdown In the Credit Markets - Fingers of Instability Part Five / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn This Issue – 3 Fingers

  • Financial Meltdown, aka Systemic Heart attack !
  • Con Game
  • Bold Predictions: Destination 1200 S&P 500, 600 Russell 2000, Dow 10800

Series Introduction – Click Here

This is a tough edition of Tedbits to chronicle. I have watched markets since 1981 and read the tealeaves during that period. We are in for a storm that is rarely seen, it is why the “Fingers of Instability” series came back to the fore from last spring. It is hard to choose what to write about at this time as the actions from various markets are screaming for attention that you should know. Gold broke out this week signaling at least a 200 dollar move from current levels, but the implication of the breakout is a financial market “ARM”ageddon, securitized asset hell and a federal reserve that is behind the curve in what's unfolding and choosing precisely the wrong moment to try and extinguish the Greenspan put. Billions of dollars are vaporizing as you read this.

Stock Market Crash Third Leg - Fingers of Instability Part Four / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

In This Issue – 2 Fingers of Instability
Reversion To The Mean
Amen Corner

Many in the economic and financial commentary business are calling what's unfolding the big one, the event that brings down the worlds booming economy and a systemic failure of the financial system. While I believe this is a serious blow up and will create lots of opportunities both “Long and short” in many markets I truly believe this is a financial problem only. It is a repricing of risk and a correction of many ill advised investments but not the end of the world. There is TOO MUCH MONEY out there to cushion the downside. The financials sectors and banks are going to get it good and hard, as they should as they tried to reach too far into the cookie jar.

The Weiss Stock Bear Market Strategy / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Sebastian Leburn writes: I'm the portfolio manager of the Weiss Bear Strategy, and I think it's time we talk about the risks of U.S. stock market declines.

Most people think the risk is greatest when corporate profits are sinking or unemployment is rising. However, some of the sharpest and most prolonged stock market declines in history began in the best of times.

What to Do Next : Five FInancial Alternatives To Stocks For These Volatile Times Part 2 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: George_Kleinman

I began the Aug. 6, 2007, issue of Commodities Trends by stating, "In the financial markets, all we know for sure is that nothing's for sure. The way I see it, financially speaking the stock market does not appear to be the place to be right now. Stocks could certainly go lower; possibly a lot lower."

In the last issue, I advocated steering clear of most stocks, investment real estate and any bond below investment grade. I also recommended buying the Japanese yen. I hope this advice helped you.

Fingers of Financial Markets Instability Part 3 - September: Blitzkrieg of Bad News / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Ty_Andros

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

In This Issue – Four Fingers Financial Markets Instability

  • Banks Out On a Limb
  • No Escape, aka “Roach Motels”
  • Juggling Acts
  • Return of the Resolution Trusts

As we move into September we must keep in mind that historically it is the worst month of the year for the stock markets. Years ending in 7 are particularly nasty as outlined in the July 15 th edition of the “Crack up boom” series. With the events this year, it would argue for more turmoil. As outlined in the previous edition of ‘Fingers of Instability', we are waiting for the cockroaches to emerge into the headlines and in this missive we will put a few “fingers” on them. The turmoil unfolding in the financial sectors of banks and prime brokers has a lot further to run before it will be safe to play on the long side. On the short side however, opportunities would appear to abound.

"...Only a lack of imagination can have allowed professional investors to suddenly think of the US Dollar as today's quality refuge..."

ONCE EVERYONE gets back from vacation and starts to focus on what's really going on, we may be in for a torrid few months in the financial markets.

Predicting the Financial Markets in the Current Chaotic Environment / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Richard_C_Cook

No one can predict how deep the decline in Western economies that is underway will go, because there is so little transparent information. Within the U.S., the government is hiding the severity of the crisis in order to prevent a collapse of consumer confidence.

Realize that the problem does not lie on the side of production. Global industry has the capacity to produce a huge quantity of goods and services. There is even a glut in some sectors, such as automobiles, textiles, IT, and other consumer products.

Fed Policy A Recipe For Disaster / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

As explained Tuesday , the Fed was not about to give into the mob (in terms of official policy) just yet in consideration of the Presidential Cycle and dollar ($), with the end result being the market thought they were demonstrating the economy is stronger than people think, which turned into a credibility boost as stocks continued to squeeze higher. This of course is really just a bluff on the Fed's part, as the credit cycle is turning down, meaning the economy (all Western economies) is in a great deal of trouble moving forward. Here, as you know, stocks are rising not because they are discounting better times ahead, as price managers would have you believe. No, they are rising because of historically high short positions set against ample liquidity conditions sufficient to spark consecutive short squeezes higher, which is why the stock market never corrects fully.
