Stock Market Uptrend May be Topping / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Caldaro

The market started the week by making a new uptrend high on Monday, pulled back, made a new all time high on Thursday, pulled back, then ended the week within one point of the all time high. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.60%, the NDX/NAZ were -0.75%, and the DJ World index gained 1.0%. Economic reports returned to a positive bias this week. On the uptick: retail sales, the NY/Philly FED, business inventories, the CPI, industrial production and capacity utilization, the NAHB housing index, and weekly jobless claims were lower. On the downtick: housing starts, building permits, the M1 multiplier and the WLEI. Next week more housing reports, durable goods orders and consumer sentiment.

“Highly accommodative monetary policy for the foreseeable future…”

Ben Bernanke, Fed Chairman, 7/10/2013 and 7/17/13

“… in June, 2013, inflation was about 9.4%, up from 9.0% in May and Real Unemployment up to 23.4% from 23% in May.

Real Retail Sales and Real Earnings contracted in June… (The Official Reported) June Retail Sales Gain Reflected little more Than Rising Inflation”

Bernanke Not a Big Enough Dove to Lift Stock Market Higher / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Well, that was disappointing!

As noted by Dave Fry: "Stocks barely moved overall as Bernanke said little to motivate traders in any direction. It still must amaze viewers to listen to the most powerful man (along with his merry fellow governors) take over the money of the United States with only a bunch of useful idiots in congress to monitor their activities. Stunning!"

Ben Bernanke’s Last Stand Is Playing Out In Front of Us Right Now / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Graham_Summers

The winning streak for stocks broke yesterday, with stocks posting a small drop (just 0.3%). We had forecast a summer rally a few weeks back and sure enough stocks have put in a 10-day winning streak.

The important line to watch is lined out below. Bernanke’s verbal intervention managed to kick off a rally when he spoke after the market was closed on Wednesday. But if we drop back below this line again, there’s not a whole lot he can do, after all, he’s promised to maintain QE… which he already had in place.

Capital Requirements Won’t Save Us From Fundamentally Unstable Monetary System / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Frank_Shostak

On Tuesday July 2, 2013 US central bank policy makers voted in favor of the US version of the global bank rules known as the Basel 3 accord. The cornerstone of the new rules is a requirement that banks maintain high quality capital, such as stock or retained earnings, equal to 7 percent of their loans and assets.

The bigger banks may be required to hold more than 9 percent. The Fed also drafted new “leverage ratio” rules to limit how much banks can borrow to fund their business.

Stock Market Huge Night Ahead....And Tomorrow As Well... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

Why are they huge? It's earnings season and the season is huge this year as the market is at lofty levels. If those earnings can't carry the day then the market is vulnerable to a large pullback over the next several weeks. It just needs a catalyst to sell. That catalyst won't come from the Fed so the bears must look elsewhere to find a reason to get more aggressive. The only reason I can think of, other than a disaster I can't wrap my mind around, is earnings. Tonight we have lots of very important stocks. Leaders if you will.

Dark Pools of Liquidity Are a Big Problem for Free Markets / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Money_Morning

Greg Madison writes: Everything runs on liquidity. Unless you know something I don't, that dollar bill in your pocket is just as likely to buy a can of Pabst Blue Ribbon today as it was yesterday, and will be tomorrow.

Or you could sell 1,000 lbs. of gold - if you have that lying around - without fear of completely scuttling the global gold market. Your bank has to have cash, liquidity, lying around somewhere in the back if it wants to stay in business.

And in many cases, it's easy to see or verify this liquidity. It helps everyone feel better about doing anything.

Stock Market Melt-Up Pauses in Advance of Bernanke’s Testimony / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: Pre-market futures pointed to a fractionally higher open, and that’s what we got. The S&P 500 hit its 0.07% intraday high during the first minute of trading and sold off in a couple of waves to its -0.63 intraday low in the early afternoon. The trade then oscillated in a five point range to a trimmed loss of 0.37% for the day, thus terminating an eight-day streak.

New Stock Market Head and Shoulders Pattern / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX made its first impulse down and the correction appears complete at the 38.2% retracement. What would be interesting is what happens at the open tomorrow. Given that this decline hasn’t a lot of time, I think it may pack a lot of punch right from the start. It took two days for the SPX to rally from 1671.00 to the top and only one day for it to retrace that move.

Stock Market Tops as the Wedges are Broken / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX crossed its lower trendline, as suggested, and is beginning to impulse down. There’s no support until it declines to its 50-day moving average at 1635.59. The cluster of supports are tightly positioned and it may take one attempt to break through, as opposed to the supports being widely spaced, forcing a stair-step decline.

Don’t Make the Same Mistake Other Stock Investors Are / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: InvestmentContrarian

Sasha Cekerevac wries: One of the most common problems new investors face is learning that at certain points in an economic cycle, bad news can be seen as good news.

The recent speech by the Federal Reserve chairman Ben Bernanke regarding monetary policy was seen as bullish for investor sentiment, even though he indicated that because the economic recovery in the U.S. is still stagnant, his current monetary policy would need to remain in effect for a longer period of time until the economic recovery gained momentum.

Stock Market Staying Overbought... For Now... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

This is a market that doesn't want to let go of overbought it seems. Some indexes, such as the Nasdaq, are overbought on multiple time frames. Everything from violently so on the sixty-minute charts to plain old overbought on the daily, weekly, and monthly charts. The S&P 500 is not as overbought on all the key time frames, but it is within a hair of being so. In other words, risk is much higher now for a decent pullback of some type. You never know when it's going to kick in. No one does in a bull market, but the risk is so much higher now with regards to buying new long positions. They can work but the risk is getting very lofty so be careful with your exposure for now. Thing will set up better again in time, so exercise patience, even if we move up further first.

How to Protect Your Assets While the Majority of Americans Aren’t / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: DailyGainsLetter

John Whitefoot wites:You can’t always believe the markets. Since 2009, the S&P 500 and Dow Jones have been on a tear and are, thanks to the Federal Reserve, making new record highs. Since the markets are considered an indicator of the health of the U.S. economy, one could be forgiven for thinking the economic recovery has been benefiting most Americans. It isn’t.

Bernanke Creates a $4 Trillion a Day Ticking Time Bomb / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Graham_Summers

The entire move last week was the result of Ben Bernanke waffling about when to taper QE (if ever).

The Fed hinted at tapering QE a mere two months ago. We now know that half of the Fed’s Board of Governors want QE tapered or even stopped entirely by the end of the year.

Stock Market Rally Time for a Pause? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

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 severe correction of 2007-2009 may have curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - SPX continues to progress according to its structure. After a brief consolidation, the bull market has resumed its uptrend and has already caused new highs in the leading indices.

Stock Market Price Action vs Central Bank Speak Since Bernanke Taper Talk / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Richard_Shaw

Benjamin Graham once said that markets are voting machines in the short-term and weighing machines in the long-term — sentiment vs fundamentals.

These days, the primary driver of sentiment tends to be central bank statements and actions — with mere statements having huge impact.

Stock Market Rally on Steroids / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short writes: The global rally for my featured group of eight indexes has entered its third consecutive week, and all eight posted gains, something that had happened only twice previously in 2013. Germany’s DAXK was by far the top performer with a 5.21% gain. In distant second, the S&P 500 rose 2.96%. At two decimal places France’s CAC 40 nosed out the UK’s FTSE 100 for third: 2.70% versus 2.66%. After three weeks as the top performer, Japan’s Nikkei came in last but with a respectable 1.37% gain. In fact, year-to-date, the weekly average of the eight indexes at 2.61% is second only to the 2.75% weekly average on the first Friday of 2013 (which carries the asterisk of having begun on the last day of 2012).

Stock Market Uptrend Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Tony_Caldaro

The market started the week just as it has left off last Friday, with a gap up opening. There were three gap up openings during this week, and two unchanged openings. The net result: SPX/DOW +2.60%, and the NDX/NAZ were +3.65%. Foreign markets fared well: Asia +1.9%, Europe +1.3%, and the DJ World index gained 3.4%. On the economic front negative reports outpaced positive ones for the first time in a while. On the downtick: wholesale inventories, export/import prices, consumer sentiment, the WLEI and weekly jobless claims rose. On the uptick: consumer credit, the PPI, the Treasury budget and the monetary base. Next week we get reports on Industrial production, the Philly/NY FED, Retail sales, Housing and the FED’s Beige book.

Another Stock Market All-Time High / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short.The S&P 500 traded in a narrow range through most of the session but rallied in the final 30 minutes to close at its intraday high, up 0.31% for the day and 2.76% for the week. That’s the second best weekly performance of the year, bested only by the 4.57% weekly gain on the first Friday of 2013 (the Fiscal Cliff relief rally), although that week actually started in 2012, beginning on Monday, December 31.
