The Euro – Are There Any Hard Currencies Left? / Stock-Markets / Fiat Currency

By: Axel_Merk

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWith gold reaching $1,000 an ounce and posting new highs versus all currencies, are there any hard currencies left? Over the past 100 years, we have moved further and further away from the gold standard. We see no indication for that trend to reverse; if anything, it may accelerate. As a result, we have cautioned long before this credit crisis erupted that there is no such thing as a safe asset anymore; investors may want to take a diversified approach to something as mundane as cash. This lack of confidence in cash goes beyond “cash equivalents” such as money market funds, commercial paper, auction rate securities, to currencies themselves. We all rely on cash for liquidity, but are concerned about purchasing power.

Dow Jones Stock Market Index Forecast 2009 - Update1 / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThis analysis seeks to update the forecast of 20th January 2009 for the Dow Jones stocks index in the light of subsequent volatile price action.

The 2009 forecast is ( Dow Jones Forecast 2009 - 20th Jan 2009) - In Summary , I do not know at precisely what price level the Dow will make a low during 2009, my best estimate at this time is 6,600, but I am expecting that it will mark the start of a multi-year bull market that will eventually make 2008-2009's price action appear as a mere minor blip, much as the 1987 crash appears on today's price charts.

They backed and filled for most of the morning, but held support. After lunch hour the markets took off and ran steadily higher to close near the session highs.

Stocks Plunge to 11 year Lows Replicating 1930's Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStock Market BearSo, back to the future, doing the time warp again, as the current market bear took us back to spring 1997 levels yesterday. Worryingly it was the NASDAQ 's big tech names (Apple –4.66%, Intel –5.48%, Microsoft –4.39%) and raw stocks that showed the downside leadership while Alcoa (-7.63%) was the big drag on the Dow . Whispers of more financial follies at the black hole that is AIG(reed) who want another bailout of the bailout of the bailout certainly didn't help either. I'd watch the whole insurance sector on the back of this. Resistance seems futile. By the way, 1997 was the year that the Nobel Prize for Economics is won by Long Term Capital Management stars Robert Merton and Myron Scholes!

Ineffective Alphabet Soup Policy Could Trigger Deflation Scare / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe markets are falling apart much faster than originally anticipated, which is troubling with respect to the inflation case. This is why we highlighted the scary reversals in M1 and M3 growth rates earlier in the week, to alert you to the possibility conditions might progress such that general price weakness could develop moving forward. While it's true such discussion might be premature, and it would take time for such reversals to have lasting effect, never the less, it's disturbing to see money supply trends possibly turning down at this time with a major sell signal in the stock market now in the bag.

Banks to Nationalize or Not to Nationalize / Stock-Markets / Nationalization

By: Paul_J_Nolte

To nationalize or not to nationalize, that is the question. Whether it is nobler in the mind to suffer the slings and arrows of (the markets) or to take up arms against the sea of troubles and by opposing end them. With a bit of poetic license we could easily rework the Hamlet's soliloquy to bring it out of the kingdom and into the banking system.

Stock Market Bears Continue To Feast On Bulls / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Kingsley_Anderson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMonday's market action was not much of a surprise. The DJIA has already closed below the November low last week. While the S&P 500 bounced off its low on Friday, it did not seem like the impetus to start looking for stocks to buy. The one positive for the S&P 500 was that the intraday November low was not breached. That fact does not instill me with a great sense of confidence.

Long-term Financial Markets Investing Overview / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIn Greek mythology, Sisyphus was a king punished by the gods. In the Greek equivalent of hell, named Tartarus, Sisyphus was cursed to roll a huge boulder up a hill – only to watch it roll down the hill again. Sisyphus' punishment was to repeat this task throughout eternity.

In the midst of this punishing bear market, I think that many investors who read Bourbon & Bayonets are probably feeling like Sisyphus right now. Many investors have seen their accounts, such as their 401k, back down to levels last seen a decade ago. Like Sisyphus, they have had their investment accounts “roll back down the hill”.

Stimulating a New Stock Market Bottom / Stock-Markets / Investing 2009

By: Oxbury_Research

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleApparently, Americans don't enjoy paying their neighbor's mortgage. Who saw that coming? Actually, although I believe this fact to be true (and I will address it in this article) I don't think it mattered as much what was in the stimulus, as the sad fact remains that we simply don't have the earnings, confidence, and unfortunately jobs , that we need to bring this market back immediately.

Stock Market Investor Sentiment: Same Story, Different Week / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Guy_Lerner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleFor the 12th week in a row the "dumb money" indicator remains neutral on the markets, and the "smart money" indicator has had one moderately bullish reading over the past 19 weeks. Like the endless parade of Sunday night bailouts and "breaking news" stories, it is the same old, tired story that is not getting the market anywhere.

Super-Investor George Soros Predicts Financial Crisis Worst Yet to Come / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2009

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWilliam Patalon III writes: Renowned investor George Soros said Friday the world financial system has effectively disintegrated , and there's no near-term bottom to this financial crisis in sight. Speaking at a dinner at Columbia University, Soros actually compared the current situation to the breakup of the Soviet Union, and said that the whipsaw effects of the crisis are actually more severe than the Great Depression.

How to Value a Toxic Asset / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Andrew_Butter

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePrice is not the same thing as Value, that's the whole point. Investment is about buying when value is more than price and selling when price is more than value; it's not complicated. Price is easy, the hard part is value.

The "vexing" problem of valuing toxic assets " was how Jeffry Sachs of Columbia University recent described the state of play of the ongoing Black Comedy (http://blogs.ft.com/economistsforum/2009/02/a-strategy-of-contingent-nationalisation/.)

Financial Markets at Critical Juncture / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: Brent_Harmes

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo roads diverged in the markets, and I... I didn't care, because I owned precious metals. This has to be the most amazing time to be alive. I believe that the changes that will play-out over the next few years will dwarf anything that has come before, and this week will be one of the decisive moments. All the major financial indicators that often foretell the short-term direction of the markets, the economy, and the general feeling of optimism or fear and gloom, are at a critical juncture. Gold, the DOW, the S&P 500, and the US dollar are all at key turning points and the direction which the markets will head for the short term should be decided this week.

Finanical Markets React to Citibank Black Hole for Tax Payers Dollars / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2009

By: PaddyPowerTrader

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBurning Taxpayers MoneyStocks fell for the fifth session in a row last Friday. But that really seems a long time ago now with the news coming fast and loose over the weekend. And yes the news flow is dominated by those pesky banks again with the artist formerly known as the world largest financial, Citibank, taking centre stage and proving it's nothing but a black hole for taxpayers dollars. Like Sisyphus, policymakers seem to be pushing a rock up a mountain only to see it roll down again time and time again as the boulder gets bigger and the incline steeper.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOn Tuesday, the S&P 500 Index swooped below 805 like a hot knife through butter, but a lack of follow through yesterday suggests the alternate count for the S&P 500 Index is now the preferred count.

Stocks Bear Market Rally About to Begin / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCurrent Position of the Market
SPX: Long-term trend - Down! The very-long-term cycles have taken over and if they make their lows when expected, the bear market which started in October 2007 should continue until 2012-2014. This would imply that much lower prices lie ahead.

SPX: Intermediate trend - A short-term rally is about to begin, but it will probably take a little longer for the start of one of intermediate trend. Technical signs are becoming favorable in diverse areas of the market.

“While the world suddenly finds itself with a glut of oil and other related commodites, one thing that is certainly in short supply so far this year is an up day in the market. So far this year, the Dow has finished the day higher on 36.7% of the 32 trading days (through Wednesday). We all know that it has been a bad year, but this is down right depressing!

Dow Theory Points to Further Stocks Bear Market Lows / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Is This March 2003? Dow Theory Says NO - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOf late I have heard the argument made that the November 2008 to February 2009 period is like the October 2002 to March 2003 time period. Of course, the basis for drawing this alleged parallel is that the market has bottomed. Well, according to Dow theory, this is not like March 2003.
