The Crushing Potential of Financial Derivatives / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: David_Haas

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGeorge Soros, one of the world's foremost investor-speculators, has said many times that he stays away from financial derivatives because “no one understands them”. In the world of finance, derivatives might be comparable to the theoretical study of linear particle acceleration in nuclear physics. Such theories appear to be “understood” mainly based on current assumptions accepted in academic circles, often with little provable working knowledge of how such currently-held theories might ultimately manifest themselves over the long run in the real world. The problem with assumptions is that they generally change…often sooner than we think.

Jim Cramer Time to Get Out of Stock Market a Buy Signal? / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleCasey's Charts: Market mayhem has the Fed off balance
“The Fed has resorted to new extremes in this financial crisis by selling off and lending its good assets, US Treasuries, in exchange for toxic waste. The result: the Federal Reserve's balance sheet has been completely restructured – including innovative off-balance-sheet hocus-pocus – and looks like it's headed for exhaustion.

Stock Market Crash Bloodbath Frustration / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI have been away from the trading desk, and the stock market's bloodbath, during the past few days as I am on a business visit in Geneva. Just as well, but I can nevertheless associate with the frustration of the trader in the animated image (hat tip: Rob Fraim).

How We Called the Stock Market Crash of 2008 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe wrote in our September 12th, weekend newsletter, page 7, “September 29th could be a kickoff to a devastating stock market crash.” That has proven true to the precise day, the Industrials crashing 3,260 points, or 29 percent since September 29th. But, how did we know?

Stock Market Imminent Seasonal Lows at Historic Times / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: We are living through great theatre. On October 20, 1987 there were 1174 new lows on the NYSE, about 57% of the 2076 issues that traded that day, a percentage record that held until recently. Last Friday there were 2901 new lows on the NYSE, about 88% of the 3306 issues traded. New lows have been calculated with their present methodology since January 1, 1978. At the 1987 low the S&P 500 (SPX) was 33.2% off its all time high set about 6 weeks earlier. On Friday the SPX was 42.5% off its all time high set about 1 year earlier.

Dow Jones Crash Shows $700 Billion Bailout an Exercise in Futility / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Professor_Emeritus

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTroubled Ass Relief Program (Tarp) - As the precipitous drop of the Dow Jones index of industrial stocks to the 8600 level on Thursday shows, the $700 billion bailout is an exercise in futility. The rescue effort administers one wrong medicine after another. Shunting rotten assets to the balance sheet of the central bank is not the way to go. Consolidating banks through forced mergers is not the way to go. Cutting interest rates is not the way to go. These measures make the problem worse, not better.

The Once in a Lifetime Stocks Bear Market / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Weekly_Wizards

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhy wasn't that a perfect reversal Jack? Because the advance decline line wasn't right. Slightly more losers than gainers on the Nas but 2/1 negative on the Nyse. You want 2/1 or 3/1 advancers to decliners. I know today seemed exciting with such a massive reversal but many stocks lagged badly and some were absolutely crushed. You won't see that when we make just the right reversal. The rally occurred for two reasons. Incredibly oversold and massive short covering ahead of the G7 meeting this weekend which will be a meeting to try and find more solutions for the current credit crisis. The shorts are afraid of them coming up with a solution that the market will like.

Stock Market Capitulation Low? / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe most salient aspect of the weekly chart of the S&P 500 is that despite the fact that the index closed 60 points off of Friday's low, the index at 899.22 also closed 198 points from the week's high, which means that the net result of this week is downside continuation. Although I would not be surprised to see the SPX climb to 960-1000 sooner than later, I also think that another loop down to 839 must take place thereafter.

Credit Crisis Collapse What Happens Next? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

  • Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleConstruction Lending: The Next Shoe to Drop
  • Lehman at the Center
  • Iceland Guarantees What?
  • Letters of Credit: Going, Going Gone?
  • What to Do and Where Do We Go from Here?

I have been writing for almost a year that the next shoe to drop on US banks would be commercial construction lending. Today we look at some hard numbers. We look across the pond to sort out the problems in Europe. We look at the consequences of the losses stemming from Lehman. Then we look at one of the more serious consequences of the banking crisis, one that will bring the crisis home to you. Finally, we look at what the various governments of the world must do in response. It may not be fun, but it should be interesting. And it is important. Feel free to forward this letter to anyone who asks why we not only need the bailout but will need even more coordinated government action.

Financial Crash and TV Media Machines Perpetual Buy Recommendations / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Stathis

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMaybe there's a good reason why CNBC has a show called Fast Money. If you follow the advice of these guys, your money is likely to evaporate very fast. Likewise, I'm beginning to see why Cramer's show is called Mad Money. You're likely to get mad if you follow his advice. Or maybe you have to be a mad man to watch it.

Anatomy of Financial and Economic Disaster -Part2 / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Andy_Sutton

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week we looked at some historical milestones as we compared the events leading up to the Great Depression to what we're seeing now. While apples to apples comparisons are problematic due to vast differences in the way economic statistics are measured and reported, it is a much more simple matter to see the big picture. This week, we take a look at things from a monetary perspective.

1929 Style Financial Markets Panic: The De-leveraging Margin Debt / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticlePanic levels are reaching levels not seen since 1929. We are now in the 3rd. Phase of a de-leveraging process.

Some of you may remember the NYSE Margin chart I posted in late 2007. Basically, it showed that 2007 margin levels were starting to drop from an "extreme" level. Historically, every time we have reached extreme margin levels, they always got unwound . That is where we are now, in an accelerating Phase 3.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLast week was one of the wildest witnessed in the stock markets in modern history.

Stock Market Crash 2008 Performance Round-up / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleI normally publish a performance review of global stock markets at the end of each month, but the meltdown around the world of the past few days necessitated an update.

“If a man does not know what port he is steering for, no wind is favorable to him,” said philosopher Seneca in 4 BC 65 AD. Why am I constantly reminded of this quote when looking at some of the rather haphazard actions taken by governments to alleviate the financial turmoil?

Central Banks Panic as Bailouts Fail to Halt Stock Market Crash / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Mike_Shedlock

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe global economic dam has now cracked wide open. Water is pouring everywhere. The bursting of the dam is a fitting tribute to Paulson's and Bush's $700 billion boondoggle to add liquidity to banks.

The public was overwhelmingly against the plan (and rightly so) as were close to 200 economists. Paulson, Bush, Trichet, and Brown all goaded Congress to waste $700 billion of taxpayer money on grounds there would be a global meltdown if the plan was not passed. Congress had it right the first time. The $700 billion bailout helped bust the dam.
