How to Play This Flat Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Investment_U

Alexander Green writes: More than a few investors are scratching their heads over the Dow's performance so far in 2014.

It stumbled out of the gate in January and February, then rallied from March through mid-April, then gave up the ghost in early May and has been bumping up and down ever since as investors swing back and forth from anxiety to complacency.

What's going on here, and how do you play it?

Stock Market New All Time Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

For a four day trading week the market did fairly well. It opened at new all time highs on Tuesday. Then made higher highs, with small pullbacks along the way, every day this week. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.95%, the NDX/NAZ were +1.50%, and the DJ World gained 0.75%. On the economic front reports continue to come in higher. On the uptick: durable goods, FHFA housing, consumer confidence/sentiment, pending home sales, personal income, the PCE, Chicago PMI, the WLEI, the monetary base, and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: personal spending, Case-Shiller and Q1 GDP. Next week we get the ISM indices, monthly Payrolls and the FED’s Beige book.

U.S. Economy Back in the Red - Stocks vs Bonds / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Mike_Whitney

If you follow the stock market, you probably think the economy is sizzling. But if bonds are your thing, then you probably think we’re still in recession.

So which is the better gauge of what’s going on in the real economy; stocks or bonds?

The bond market is more accurate. And recently, long-term yields have been dropping like a stone which is not a good sign for the economy. Investors seem to think that slow growth and low inflation are here to stay, and they could be right. According to Bloomberg, “Falling yields on longer-term Treasuries historically reflect periods of lackluster growth. Since 1960, they have predicted seven of the last eight recessions when 10-year yields fell below 3-month bill rates.” As of today, the benchmark 10-year UST is a dismal 2.44 percent.

No Dozing: It’s Time to Profit From the Tech Stock Rebound / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Money_Morning

Michael A. Robinson writes: Back on Feb. 21, in the report “My ‘Sominex Strategy’ for Big Profits In This Rocky Market,” I explained why I was projecting an exceptionally volatile stretch for tech stocks.

And I even showed you the investment strategy to use to traverse it.

I did all this for one reason: I just knew that a strong tech rebound would follow. And the investors who stayed in the game would cash in big when that resurgence began.

Stock Market New High Blasts 'Sell in May and Go Away' Bears Expectations / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Even before May began the mantra of 'Sell in May and Go Away' had built up into a crescendo by the blogosfear that always sees a trend, any trend be it bull or bear as always IMMINENTLY TERMINATING as was the case for the current stocks rally that began following the last significant correction's bottom at the end of February 2014 when the highly vocal view was that next great bear market had begun. Instead the stock market has climbed its way to a series of new all time highs the most recent of which was yesterdays close at Dow 16,717 and S&P 1923.

Stock Market Over 85 Years - Has the Fed Produced Any Benefits? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: EWI

By Robert Prechter

Has the Fed Produced Any Benefits?
The Fed has benefited the government mightily. Its exchange of new accounting units for the Treasury’s bonds has stealthily transferred value from savers’ accounts to the government. In conjunction with the FDIC, it has also benefitted bankers in the short run by allowing them to make profits on reckless loans and avoid accountability. But in doing so it has sucked value out of savers’ accounts and burdened the American economy.

How Not to Be Scared by the Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Investment_U

Marc Lichtenfeld writes: I sat there in stunned silence.

We were having dinner with our friends, when the husband told us he doesn't invest. "I don't trust the markets," he said. He keeps all of his savings in cash.

This isn't some fool we're talking about. He's owns a successful small business that he's operated for years. We had talked about his business for about a half hour before his shocking comments. The man knows how to make money.

Stock Market At New Highs – Investors Take Some Profits, Flat Correction Or Topping Pattern? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Paul_Rejczak

Briefly: In our opinion speculative long positions are still favored (with stop-loss at 1,885, S&P 500 index).

Our intraday outlook is still bullish, and our short-term outlook is now bullish, following a breakout above consolidation:

Intraday (next 24 hours) outlook: bullish
Short-term (next 1-2 weeks) outlook: bullish
Medium-term (next 1-3 months) outlook: neutral
Long-term outlook (next year): bullish

Stock Market Hangs Tough....Sells A Drop.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

You know how bull markets work. They get a bid and after getting very overbought the prevailing view is that it has to have a big pullback. The masses wait for it, but it doesn't come on their time. Of course, the pullback comes when the masses get involved. The market is overbought on the short-term charts to be sure, but they can stay that way when key sectors have taken out critical resistance, such as we have witnessed from the S&P 500 and Nasdaq 100. The S&P 500 took out important horizontal resistance when it closed above 1897, while the Nasdaq 100 took out key resistance when it cleared the 50-day exponential moving average. It has continued to run once cleared, thus, the market has a bid again whenever it tries to sell.

Everything You Think You Own Has Been Borrowed / Stock-Markets / Global Debt Crisis 2014

By: Raul_I_Meijer

Let’s take another look at debt. We’ve probably all gotten so used to huge debt numbers that we’re losing sight of what they actually mean. In the following article, Tyler Durden made me rethink both the debt issue and the perverse consequences of 7 years of zero interest policies (ZIRP) and/or ultra low interest rates. The destruction to society is far greater than anyone seems to be willing to let on. But that doesn’t make it any less real. Here goes:

Why FOMO Is Every Stock Investor’s Worst Enemy / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Dan Steinhart, Managing Editor, The Casey Report

FOMO.

I heard this acronym on a podcast last week. Having no clue what it meant, I consulted Google.

Turns out it stands for “Fear of Missing Out.” Kids use it to describe their anxiety about missing a social event that all of their friends are attending.

Stock Market Seeking New Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are in their down phases, and if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over), there will be another steep decline into late 2014. However, the Fed policy of keeping interest rates low has severely curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - Probably tracing out an ending diagonal pattern.

Strategic Investment - A Bubble In Complacency / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: John_Mauldin

Notes from SIC 2014

I and many others are still trying to digest the massive amount of useful and original information that was offered at last week’s Strategic Investment Conference. In this week’s letter I want to recap some of what I learned but do so in a little different manner. I find it quite instructive to listen to and read what other people have to say about their takeaways from the conference. I have come across several very good summaries and reviews that I am going to excerpt rather liberally, along with sharing some of my own thoughts.

Stock Market Are You Ready? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: WavePatternTraders

SPX
In my last article I wrote that we were looking for more upside, the SPY and ES are the first markets to confirm the upside move we have been expecting, although the SPX has yet to confirm a new all time high, the DAX and DOW are likely to confirm the move that we have seen on the ES and SPY. Both the DAX and DOW have similar patterns to the SPX but they need a bit more upside, which I think will be seen this coming week.

Indian Stocks: You Want a REAL Opportunity? Know WHEN to Look for It / Stock-Markets / India

Why the Nifty and many other emerging market stocks screamed "Buy!" three months ago

From Elliott Wave International's February Asian-Pacific Financial Forecast (published Feb. 7):

...Bloomberg reports that "more than $7 billion flowed from ETFs investing in developing-nation assets in January, the most since the securities were created." Such massive selling...supports our view that emerging markets are ending large-degree three-wave declines.

Are Some Proven Stock Market Investment Strategies Too Simple To Accept? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Sy_Harding

As goes January so goes the year. Avoid the first two years of the Four-Year Presidential Cycle. Buy in the fall of the 2nd year of the presidential cycle and hold through to the end of the third year. Sell in May and re-enter in October.

Those are all strategies proven to out-perform the market over the long-term. Don’t take my word for it. But also don’t blame the messenger. I am only reporting what hundreds of exhaustive academic and independent studies have clearly shown since forever.

SPX Cycle Top - End of an Era? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX is up against its Cycle Top resistance and appears to have completed its retracement. It may be time for a Dynamic Sell Signal. The current high of 1899.05 is still short of the May 13 high of 1902.17. The pattern does not support a further rally.

Energy Stocks No Bear Market Refuge / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Zeal_LLC

The lofty US stock markets have stalled out, looking more and more top-heavy with each passing day.  This is spawning growing unease among prudent investors, who sense the long-overdue major selloff is nearing.  Many are seeking shelter in sectors they hope will weather the storm.  And energy stocks, with their lower valuations, are a leading one.  Unfortunately history proves they too offer no refuge in stock bears.

The stock markets are topping, essentially grinding sideways near nominal record highs for the better part of 3 months now.  The American S&P 500 benchmark stock index is now trading at incredibly high valuations between 23x to 26x trailing earnings, dangerously expensive.  And after rocketing 180.5% higher over 5.2 years, this truly extraordinary bull market stocks have enjoyed is getting ominously long in the tooth.
