A Bull Market in Fools / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: Adrian_Ash

"...All financial bubbles need the rabble to pile in before the bubble goes bang. But something's amiss this time round..."

DAY TRADERS in spring 2000, shoe-shine boys in 1929, the "meaner rabble" in 1720's London ...

Glancing at the history of speculative bubbles, as we do all too often here at BullionVault , we find the ordinary sort in fact acts as the very pin itself.

The one thing needful at the top of each bubble, the rabble also take on the role of greatest sucker, too. Piling in as the smart money runs for the exits, the common-or-garden investor pays top price. He or she is then left holding the "asset" as its price collapses...and by that time, the Lear Jets have long since cleared the tarmac...taking the money with them.

Stock Market Brushfire; Will there be a run on the Banks? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Mike_Whitney

On Friday, the Dow Jone's clawed its way back from a 200 point deficit to a mere 31 point loss after the Federal Reserve injected $38 billion into the banking system. The Fed had already pumped $24 billion into the system a day earlier after the Dow plummeted 387 points. That brings the Fed's total commitment to a whopping $62 billion.

By some estimates, $326.3 billion has now been added to the G-7 Nations' intra-banking system to prevent a breakdown. That amount will rise considerably in the weeks ahead as the situation continues to deteriorate. Some readers may remember that on Tuesday, August 7, the Fed announced that it was NOT planning to bail out the market.

My, how quickly things change.

Global Financial System in Jeopardy! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Money_and_Markets

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article

Martin Weiss writes : For the first time since 9-11, central banks around the world are pouring massive amounts of fresh new cash into their markets.

On Thursday alone, Japan pumped in $8.4 billion … Australia injected $4.2 billion … the U.S. pumped in $24 billion … and the European Central Bank flooded its banking system with an unprecedented $130 billion! And on Friday, they did it again , opening the money floodgates in similar quantities.

FTSE 100 Index UK Stock Market Summer Correction Over? / Stock-Markets / UK Stock Market

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The US Subprime fallout in the form of the ongoing Credit Crunch has taken the FTSE 100 Index sharply lower in a short space of time. The FTSE has fallen into the target zone of 6050 to 6000 and therefore implies that the correction is over and a strong rally is now due. The ongoing impact of hedge fund failures is likely to impact the stock markets across the world for some time to come therefore will be a factor in generation of short-term volatility in the UK Stock market for many more months.

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis : Intermediate Top Spotting / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dominick

With volatility, illiquidity, and uncertainty roiling equity markets this week, we tuned out the pundits, removed bias, and traded the charts as they evolved and presented the set ups we identified over the weekend. Last Friday, as “Cramerica” was capitulating, we were looking for a tradable bottom, barring some sort of meltdown. To this effect, last weekend's update said:

“From here, Dom acknowledges that the bears must see Thursday's high as an abc for wave 2, making Friday's selling a wave 3, but this is a low probability setup. Dom's working count has this leg ending soon, but also critical levels where this count has to be abandoned. Remember, price levels are the key to trading here, not unconfirmed counts.”

The Grim Reaper Pays A Visit To Wall Street / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Mike_Whitney

Alan Greenspan's low-interest, subprime, snake-oil Caravan took another spin down Wall Street Thursday - ripping up pavement, knocking down power-poles and sending traders scampering for safety. When the dust finally settled, “Maestro's” wrecking ball had lopped another 387 points off the Dow Jones leaving markets reeling and investors cringing in fear. No doubt about it; the mood on the “Street” has taken a 180 overnight. A long procession of bears---marching three-abreast with arms locked—can now be seen winding through downtown Manhattan. Their sense of triumph is palpable.

Meanwhile the last wounded bull—still writhing at curbside-- is being carted off to slaughter.

MORTGAGE BLUES

No one has summed up the disaster in the mortgage lending business better than Paul Muolo of “Broker Universe”:

Dow Theory and Stock Market Update / Stock-Markets / Dow Theory

By: Tim_Wood

Many proclaim that the recent decline below the June 2007 lows by the Industrials and the Transports served to trigger a Dow theory sell signal. Based on the evidence as I read the averages, this is not the case.

The extended advance up out of the 2002/2003 lows has proven to be one of the longest advances in stock market history. As a result, it has proven that the single most important aspect of Dow theory is price and that what we may perceive as value or a given market phasing is in fact secondary. In other words, price itself is the single most important aspect of Dow theory and the old time Dow theorists knew it.

Back to the 1998 Crisis, Subprime's to Impact for a Longtime / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: John_Mauldin

In this issue:
China - Upping the Rhetorical Ante
Back to 1998
The End of the Quantitative World
Subprime for a Long Time
The Fugu Ultimatum
90 Years and Still Going Strong

In the early fall of 1998, I remember being on a flight to Bermuda from New York. I was upgraded and sat next to a very distinguished looking gentleman. He was going to a conference about re-insurance and I was going to speak at a large hedge fund conference. We hit it off, and began a very interesting conversation, one that still burns in my mind today. It turns out that he was vice-chairman of one of the largest insurance firms in the world, and was a real financial insider, seemingly knowing every big name on Wall Street personally. After he had a few drinks (he was clearly somewhat stressed), he began to talk about the Long Term Capital Management fund and the problems in the markets. He had had a ring side seat at the Fed-sponsored bailout proceedings.

Central Bank Ponzi-Regimes to the Rescue of Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Central Banks

By: Joseph_Russo

Kindly indulge us - as we pen this week's intro with the spirit and dark-humor of a Dennis Miller-like rant.

We cannot help but find it quite amusing that:

The titan institutions currently adhering to egregiously mutated paradigm-doctrines, handed down by their founding architects - the global cartel of central banks - (financial engineers of worthless marked-to-nothing fiat-paper) suddenly find themselves scrambling to affect “rescue” across a broad spectrum of over-bloated markets, from a systemically induced crisis of inevitability - spawned from the godfather of all Ponzi-schemes from which they preside.

Survive the Credit Crunch by Sticking With Good Stocks / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Roger_Conrad

How do you solve a liquidity crisis? The simple answer is to inject more liquidity into the financial system. The hard part is not pouring in too much and thereby setting off a speculative boom in the markets that leads to a greater meltdown later on.

That's the dilemma facing the world's central bankers today, as the investment markets confront their worst crisis in half a decade. And unfortunately, the answer is no easier this time around than it was in the summer of 1998, the time of the last liquidity crisis.

The Fed says, “Don't Panic!” / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Yesterday the Federal Reserve “injected” $24 billion into the market. This morning they “injected” another $19 billion. Yesterday the world banks collectively “injected” $150 billion of cash into the markets. This morning, they repeated the procedure with another $173 billion that I can account for. What does that mean? In a nutshell, the Federal Reserve and the other central banks have become the buyers of last resort for Wall Street's toxic waste.

Last night, the banks raised their overnight interest rate from 5.25% to 5.5% as a move that reflected an increased demand for cash and higher risk, even in the overnight (read: bank funds and money markets) accounts. The Fed move was meant to keep markets “orderly” by lowering rates back to 5.25%. The result was to stop the market decline , if only temporarily.

Full Blown Liquidity Crisis Hits Stocks And Gold / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Christopher_Laird

As news of new subprime losses emerges around the world, stock markets are selling off. What began as the first string of losses at Bear Stearns has now become wider. In fact, it is beginning to look like a developing world liquidity emergency.

This week, the large French bank Paribas froze 3 funds worth about $2 billion after it became clear they cannot value the mortgage derivatives held by the funds. Soon after this news, EU banks and institutions started to flee to cash. The ECB had to lend an unprecedented $130 billion to stave off a banking/liquidity crisis. European investors said the ECB was acting on an emergency basis.

Mortgage Backed Securties Are America's Shoddiest Exports / Stock-Markets / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: Peter_Schiff

For years, Americans have been able to pay for enormous trade deficits by exchanging IOU's for imported consumer goods. Unfortunately for foreign creditors, a substantial percentage of those IOU's have recently taken the form of mortgaged backed securities.

Sporting higher yields than Treasury bonds, investment grade ratings from reputable agencies, and juicy commissions for the investment banks that packaged them, these structured mortgage bonds have quickly become America 's greatest export. Ironically, amid cll the recent hoopla about defective Chinese exports, America has proved that when it comes to flooding the world with shoddy merchandise, nobody beats the good old USA .

By: Andy_Sutton

Just as everyone thought things were getting back to normal. Just as everyone thought that all the bad and ugly stuff had receded into seldom-accessed portions of the subconscious. Just as the bulls were starting to get a little of that swagger back and talk of new records filled the airwaves... BANG! The markets were once again slapped with another dose of reality. The really interesting thing about today was not only what didn't happen, but what DID happen.

“ARM”ageddon As Subprime Financial Dominos Fall / Stock-Markets / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: Ty_Andros

The dominos have begun to fall, look for it to cascade into the fall as markets reprice the normalization of credit conditions, and CURTAIL the most risky and foolish lending practices. Cov lite, LBO's, private equity and CDO/CMO paper is dead until the deals are priced in a manner that secures lenders interests in a RATIONAL manner, as they should be as they are just SUBPRIME on a gargantuan scale. I love it as volatility is opportunity for the prepared investor. Volatility rose from 1997 till the high in 2000 and the markets did fine. After several weeks of market turmoil it's time to look at the factors that are the catalyst to this market sell off. It's not over by a long shot but some curious things are happening and I want to inform you of them.

Central Banks Bailout of Financial Markets Backfires / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Brady_Willett

The central bank support that Cramer was crying for last week arrived, and it didn't work

A funny thing happened during today's central bank bailout attempt: the markets plunged. Is it just me, or when central bankers unite and throw money at a problem isn't that problem supposed to go away?
