Stocks Secular Bear Market Immune to Bailout Government Manipulation / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Tim_Wood

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleBy every historical measure the equity markets slipped into a secular bear market in 2000. As a result, we began to see efforts by the powers that be to keep the market afloat. I have stated all along that manipulation, will ultimately not work. I have also stated all along that all this will do is make matters worse in the end. Well, I would think that everyone can now see, matters are indeed much worse. Yet, the Fed, the Treasury and the politicians continue to think that they can “fix” the problem by throwing more money at it. They do not understand that they can't “fix” this economic crisis. They also do not understand that it is their trying to “fix” things in the past that has created the current situation. All markets as well as the economy must both inhale and exhale. They are trying to prevent the exhaling and it ain't gonna work.

Profiting Amid Financial Markets Chaos / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Joseph_Russo

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe Greatest Lie Ever Told

Now that the authorities essentially have received what they asked for, it will be with great interest that we will observe the equity market reaction. Given the potential response to mass recognition that the entire financial system may be nothing more than a gargantuan sham, it would not surprise us in the least to witness a four-digit one-day decline in the Dow before this bear is over.

Bailout Does Not Change Bearish Stock Market Fundamentals / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOink, oink! While attempting to craft a bill that would supposedly restore confidence in the financial markets, lawmaker just couldn't help not putting in goodies that have nothing to do with the bailout. This bill started with three pages of text. It has now expanded to over 400 pages. A partial list of earmarks in the 451-page bill includes a $2 million tax benefit for makers of wooden arrows for children; a $100 million tax break to benefit auto racetrack owners; $192 million in rebates on excise taxes for the Puerto Rican and Virgin Islands rum industry; $148 million in tax relief for U.S. wool fabric producers; and a $49 million tax benefit for fishermen and other plaintiffs who sued over the 1989 tanker Exxon Valdez spill.

Nasdaq Q's Recover / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

After pressing beneath the lower channel line yesterday, the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) have recovered and now are trading above the lower support plateau (37.00) in what so far is classic reversal behavior using channel analysis. Now the Q's need to hurdle and sustain above the first important resistance level at 38.00/20 to elevate my technical confidence for a meaningful upside reversal. However, to trigger significant reversal signals, the Q's must hurdle and sustain above 39.00/30 to complete a Sept-Oct double bottom at 36.75 (9/29) and 37.02 (10/2). For now, ahead of the "The Vote," I am still watching the unfolding micro pattern.

Bailout Plan Bullish for Stock Market? What Happens Next? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Prieur_du_Plessis

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleOne major international bank after the other is collapsing and is either being nationalized or sold off in sections. Although passed by the US Senate, the House of Representatives has yet to approve a bail-out plan for beleaguered banks.

Globally there is a sudden shortage of US dollars in money markets. Central banks of major powers are injecting enormous amounts of money into money-market systems worldwide.

Deleveraging Markets Demand Active Investors / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Weekly_Wizards

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJay Matulich writes: What do you see happening with the markets?

What's going on with the markets is what I've been talking with you about for the last year -- that there's a great unwinding of leverage going on, and it's going to continue until at the earliest the middle of next year. What that has done is put a tremendous amount of pressure on selling all asset classes. This winding down of leverage has gone from subprime into other mortgage products and mutated into other areas of the debt market. This has caused all asset classes to be under pressure, since basically all the asset classes from March 2003 went up together, a correlation of 1.0, except for the dollar. As leverage gets unwound all positions get taken off, and it's been very vicious.

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: The 777.68-point nosedive in the Dow Jones Industrial Averageon Monday was the single-biggest point drop ever, eradicating $1.2 trillion in shareholder wealth, and leaving mainstream investors feeling shell-shocked after the House of Representatives rejected a $700 billion banking bailout bill.

But here's what most people don't know.

I was not the only one who has been saying that the accountancy rules that mandated Mark to Market valuation of assets caused the Credit Crisis. And that this was making things worse.

Defense of Speculators and Short-Sellers / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Alex_Epstein

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAmit Ghate writes: Everywhere today government bureaucrats and media pundits blame unwanted price movements on speculators and short-sellers. If prices are “too high”--it's the fault of greedy speculators; if prices are “too low”--it's the work of evil short-sellers. To hear these critics tell it, speculators have the ability to create artificially high prices, while short-sellers can wantonly destroy sound companies. (Ignore for now the obvious question: “Where are the short-sellers in markets that are 'too high' and the speculators in markets that are 'too low'?")

Financial Crisis Investing: The Big Picture / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhile sitting on large cash positions, it is prudent to take some time to examine the big picture. Markets all over the world and the vast majority of asset classes remain firmly in downtrends. Powerful countertrend rallies are to be expected and are overdue. Countertrend rallies can last weeks or months. They will come at some point – we should not let them take our eye off the bear-market ball. We are far from having significant evidence that a lasting bottom is in place.

Banking Crisis Bailouts Analysis Costs and Impacts / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: John_Mauldin

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleDo government bailouts in times of banking crises work? Philippa Dunne & Doug Henwood of The Liscio Report highlight a major study of 42 fairly recent banking crises around the world. Result? Some types of government intervention works and some don't. One characteristic that is needed though is speed. Dithering, a la Japan, is a recipe for disaster. This is a brief summary of the report (to which they provide a link) and their conclusions as to the basic outlines of what the US should do. Given that Europe is already in the throws of its own bank crisis, and the rest of the world could experience problems, this should be useful reading. They also provide graphs of banking crises and comparisons with developed countries and the resulting market experience.

Spreading Global Banking Crisis and its International Ramifications  / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe United States prides itself on being the home of free market capitalism, governed by the rule of law. However, the rapidly developing capital market crisis demonstrates once again that, faced with a systemic crisis, rules and ideology take second place to pragmatism. A similar incident happened on 15 August 1971 when Nixon arbitrarily ditched the solemn US international pledge to honour the Bretton Woods Agreements making the dollar convertible into gold at US$35 an ounce. Cynics might say that the US lives by the Gold Rule: he who has the gold makes the rules.

Financial Storm Ensures Stocks Bear Market has Much Further to Run / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Ronald_Rosen

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen all around us are moaning and groaning and pulling out their hair, and when they are concerned with their loss of money as though it were a loss of life, remember all those times that you were called a fool for buying and holding gold. Remember when you were thought of as a silly alchemist turning “good” paper into worthless gold. Be thankful for the fact that you will be here to pick up the industrial, transport, utility, and technology shares of the surviving companies as they are tossed away like garbage. The United States of America is not through for a simple reason. You, the honorable, the sound, the wise, the patient, and the gold holders and believers, will rebuild your nation. This process has been repeated over and over again. It is being repeated once again.

Derivatives Deleveraging, Debt Deflation, Gold and Bailout II / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Christopher_Laird

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleNow that Bailout I voted down, bailout II comes up next. Surely some new bailout manifestation will emerge this week and pass. We suspected in our Sunday newsletter Bailout I would fail to pass. But, Congress, shell shocked by fast moving events, will do something.

But it won't work. Ultimately, even if they came up with a $1 trillion program, all it would do is buy time. I mentioned that there is $1000 trillion of various leveraged markets deleveraging, and putting up 1 trillion against that just won't work.

Financial Tsunami: The End of the World as we Knew it / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: F_William_Engdahl

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe unexpected US Congress' rejection of the Bush Administration financial rescue plan, TARP on September 29 has opened up the spectre for the first time of a 1931-style domino wave of worldwide bank failures. That is already underway across the US banking spectrum with the failure, nationalization or forced liquidation in the past two weeks of Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac, of the giant Washington Mutual mortgage lender, of the nation's fourth largest deposit bank, Wachovia. That was on top of a wave of smaller bank failures that began with IndyMac in the spring. For some it is appealing and more simple to grasp the magnitude of these titanic events in the US-centered financial world by assuming it is all part of a pre-planned grand conspiracy by the Money Masters, what in the 1920s in the USA was termed the Money Trust, to control the entire financial world.

Global Deleveraging- Are You Really Prepared for What's Coming? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: Kurt_Kasun

I only wish to make a couple of points in this short commentary.

The debacle envisioned by Austrian economists is now becoming an undisputed reality. Don't be fooled by calls for Keynesianism. It might have worked when we were a creditor nation, but now that we have squandered most of our wealth (through Keynesian policies) and are the biggest debtor nation in the history of the world, it will fail miserably this time around...bond yields will soar and our currency will plummet.
