Long-term Review of Stock & Commodity Bull Markets, Alternating Leadership / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past 120 years, there has been a constant shifting of leadership between stocks and commodities. From 1875 to 1905, the U.S. stock market provided greater relative performance than raw materials. This changed to highlight commodities over equities from 1905 to 1920. The crown shifted back to stocks throughout the 1920s only to lose that leadership again to natural resources from 1930 to 1946. Stocks, once again, offered greater relative performance over commodities in the the late 1940s and continue to prove superior until 1965 where raw material prices took the leadership back from stocks and provided higher returns for investors until 1982.

Stock Market Afternoon Snapback Rally Pares Losses / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Harry_Boxer

The markets had a very similar day to Monday in that there was a sharp sell-off in the morning, a bounce mid-day morning and then a move to afternoon lows which pressed weekly support on the SPX. But once again in the afternoon they came back solidly with a move from 1473 to 1495 on the NDX and from 928 to 939 on the SPX, closing near the afternoon rally highs going away and paring way back on the day's losses. However, they did end the session on the downside.

SDS UltraShort SPY Testing Resistance / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The hourly pattern carved out by the ProShares UltraShort SPY (NYSE: SDS) since the beginning of June shows that all the action appears to be developing into a sideways contractionary price range.  At this point, a decline that breaks 51.80/50 should trigger downside acceleration to new low territory, while a climb above 55.05/40 should trigger upside continuation towards 57.50-58.00 thereafter.  For the time being, after holding 51.79, the SDS likely is only mid-way through with its upward traverse of the recent range, as it heads for a test of 55.00 next.

Stocks Snooze While The Great Economic Recovery Debate Rumbles / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA light volume yawn day saw equities crawl over the finish line to finish marginally higher. The bigger winners were the semiconductors stocks (up 4%) on the back of the bullish news from Texas Instruments Monday night. VIX (volatility) was down 5% which was odd given the tiny margin moves in the equity indices. Crude oil closed over $71 barrel (a high since Oct 2008) on seasonal demand and spec bets on the reflation trade. The Greenback was again looking soggy losing 1% though the three year Treasury Bond auction went well. Indeed fear of Fed rate hikes by the autumn appear way overdone.

Leading Economic Indicators, S&P 500, and 10 Month Moving Average / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOver the past month I have highlighted the strategy attributed to Mebane Faber. It is a simple but elegant strategy that probably gets more merit for its aversion to risk than its ability to time the exact bottom of a bear market. It is a strategy - a way of executing a plan of when to buy and sell. It is not a "call" or opinion on the market. That stuff I will leave to others.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The European election result has been met with little interest in the United States; for one thing, the plethora of parties from 27 different countries makes it almost incomprehensible. Yet it continued a long-term, very important trend, which should be hugely interesting to international investors.

Suspicious Late Day Spike Pushes Stocks Flat / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSome very strange price (and some would say suspicious) action around 20.15 last night saw the S&P 500 and the Dow Jones spike sharply to close flat having been under water to the tune of 130+ points earlier in the session. Despite sluggish sales from McDonalds and news that Apple was cutting the price of its iPhones, traders cited “programme buying” from JP Morgan and UBS for the late rally. After the bell Texas Instruments increased their 2nd quarter forecasts while self appointed Mr Know ALL Nobel prize winner (and boy has it gone to his head) Paul Krugman opined that the Great Recession with end for the U.S. by September.

Stock Market Summer Trend Into a Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: David_Petch

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe daily chart of the S&P 500 Index is shown below, with upper 21 and 34 MA Bollinger bands riding the index higher while lower BB’s continue to rise alongside the index, along with a potential Elliott Wave count displayed (which has a lower probability of occurrence compared to the other displayed patterns. Full stochastics 1, 2 and 3 are shown below in order of descent, with the %K above the %D in stochastics 1 and 3. If the %K can manage to remain hooked up and cross the %D in stochastic 2, it increases the likelihood that the continued price movement in the S&P 500 index drifts between 900-1000 over the course of the next 1-2 weeks at a minimum before topping out. As the Captain noted and as Elliott Wave charts will later show, there is a chance the markets simply go sideways for the summer before having a fall crash…to risky for most to even attempt playing, so use risk capital and no more than 5% on any given market trade.

Summer Of Stock Market Discontent as Capital Flees to Precious Metals / Stock-Markets / Gold & Silver 2009

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe following study comparing the pattern in today’s Dow to the post crash Nikki, similar to our own findings, does a good job of talking about both near term and extended possibilities within a predominantly deflationary environment that would sponsor such an outcome. Within the context of this discussion, and again, a topic we have been focusing on in attempting to identify the eventual turn back down in the broad markets, in the above Sarel Oberholster correctly points out that although the Dow has almost achieved the same percentage gain witnessed in the Nikki’s post crash bounce (31% compared to 34%), timing wise, if the patterning is to be a closer match, stocks could remain buoyant for up to another four months. You will remember we cited an extended rally as a distinct possibility within the context of a ‘seasonal inversion’ up until last week when probabilities associated with the 1929 to 1932 sequence remaining dominant shot up with a collapse in US index open interest put / call ratios.

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Stock Market Extreme Bullish Sentiment / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAs you would expect from the bullish price action last week, the "Dumb Money" indicator is moving to new extreme highs. Since 1991, this has been the 8th most extreme reading out of the 42 unique times the indicator went above the bullish extreme line (i.e., bear signal). Extreme readings, such as the current one, are generally associated with strong bull markets like those seen from 1995 to 1998 and from 2003 to 2004. The only real failure was in 2002, and this led to the flush into the July, 2002 lows.
