Obama Kills Osama After the Bernank Spoke, US Dollar Bubble Bursts Trending Towards USD69 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Nadeem_Walayat

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhat a week! A series ever more historic events accompanied by the dollar's continuing in the background meltdown.

Firstly, the Bernank spoke, spouting more central bank propaganda which as expected has been liberally lapped up by the mainstream financial press and further regurgitated at length by the BlogosFear, after all talk is cheap when compared with the increasing costs of actually doing something.

Stock Market Sidelights to 1994 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Fred_Sheehan

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleLURING THE UNSOPHISTICATED into the stock market was considered a risk by Federal Reserve Chairman Alan Greenspan in 1994. So much so, that protecting the individual investor was a mandate of the Fed. (The Fed advertises and then omits new mandates faster than spring fashions. My favorite is the brainstorm of former Fed governor Frederic Mishkin in 2007: "The modern science of monetary policy proceeds under the assumption that the central bank's purpose is to maximize the well-being of households in the economy; the objective function specifies exactly what should be maximized.") On May 27, 1994, Greenspan told the Senate Banking Committee it was for this very reason that he - his FOMC - had started raising rates in February, 1994: "Lured by consistently high returns in capital markets, people exhibited increasingly a willingness to take on market risk by extending the maturity of their investments." The People had shifted assets out of bank deposits and the like. The avuncular Fed chairman, by raising rates, was shepherding his sheep: "[S]ome of those buying the funds perhaps did not fully appreciate the exposure of their new investments to the usual fluctuations in bond and stock prices."

Another Sign QE2 is Undermining the Economic Recovery / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA rather eye-opening headline appearing in the financial press is worth discussing here because it’s symptomatic of a bigger problem plaguing the economy. This problem will only increase in the coming months and there’s ample reason for believing it will eventually undermine the cyclical bull market in stocks. The headline reads, “Kimberly-Clark to hike prices after profit falls.”

Prepare for a Stock-Market Reversal, Even at New Bull-Market Highs / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleKeith Fitz-Gerald writes: In a stunning display of determination (or simple greed), U.S. stock prices are once again at new highs - despite problems in the Middle East, out-of-control government deficits throughout the world, an increasingly inflated China and the looming end to the U.S. Federal Reserve's free-money boondoggle, otherwise known as "QE2."

Dow Jones Transportation Stock Index Rolls to Record High / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: The biggest news of the week for me was the fantastic earnings report from railroad Norfolk Southern Corp. (NYSE: NSC), which pushed the Dow Jones Transportation Average to a new record high.

Think about that. New. All-Time. High. For the transports. The transports! When crude oil prices are pressing $112 a barrel. When the economy is limping along at an annualized growth rate of less than 2%. When the bears said we should be diving for cover.

Stock Market May be Ready for a Correction / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleVery Long-term trend –he continuing strength in the indices is causing me to question whether we are in a secular bear market or two consecutive bull/bear cycles.  In any case, the very-long-term cycles are down and, if they make their lows when expected, there will be another steep and prolonged decline into 2014-16.

Long-term trend - In March 2009, the SPX began an upward move in the form of a bull market.  Cycles and P&F projections point to a continuation of this trend for several more months.

Stock Market Bull Marches On.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

It was an interesting week for the stock market. It had the big news from fed Bernanke on how he would deal with rising inflation that seems to be getting a bit out of control. The Government tries hard to down play how bad things are by saying inflation isn't so bad if you REMOVE food and energy. Makes you laugh with how stupid that is. Shows you how little respect they have for anyone. Food and energy are the two most important aspects of one's life, but we won't count it. We do as citizens, however, and it's really getting insane out there. Fed Bernanke told the world that, although inflation is moving higher, he is far more fearful of the dreaded D word, deflation.

Bursting Bubbles, Waning Currency Systems and Insolvent Financial Institutions / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWe keep searching Congress for leadership and all we see and hear is compromises and moneyed footsteps leading back to their controllers on Wall Street and in banking. We find few willing to stand up to the military industrial complex or the moneyed powers that control our country. Spending restraint is very difficult to find.

Investors Be Thematic In Your Approach / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Richard_Mills

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhen looking for a dominant investment theme the approach I take involves looking at global or big picture conditions. I study trends, read the news, basically watch and listen to what's going on in the world. What I'm looking for is something so powerful, so dominant, it's going to be my guide to where I invest - I focus on the factors that I think will drive headlines going forward.

U.S. Dollar Investors Reality Check - How Much is that Priced in Euros? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: PhilStockWorld

Diamond Rated - Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIt’s as if 2008 never happened.
Once again the worlds investors are pumping up bubbles that will probably explode in their faces. After the popping of a real estate bubble led to the first global recession since the 1930s, world markets are frothing like shaken Champagne. Pundits claim to have spotted price increases that are unsupported by economic fundamentals in assets ranging from U.S. farmland to Israeli biotech to Australian housing to Chinese cemetery sites. Commodities have soared. Global junk-bond issuance hit a record in the first three months of the year … this is the granddaddy of them all, an almost-encompassing bubble right at the heart of monetary systems. - Peter Coy & Roben Farzad

U.S. Dollar, Gold and SP500 Trend Analysis Report / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The dollar continues to control the equities and commodities market with its inverse relationship to them. The past couple years it seems that the dollar does what it wants and the all other investments move according to their relationship with rising or falling dollar prices.
Most of you know that I follow the dollar very closely. And each morning I provide my analysis with what I feel will take place throughout the session or next 48 hours.

The Bernanke Speaks... Says Little..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

And that's how you know he did a great job. He wanted to say as little as possible because it was in his best interest to keep things just as they are right now. He wants to keep the stock market humming along. Don't disrupt what isn't broken because it's a healthy stock market that makes him look good. A healthy market means a healthier than thought possible Main Street. Main Street would be a ghost town if it weren't for his monetary policy of pump, pump, and pump some more. Pumping dollars that is. He told us at 12:15 Eastern Time that things will remain status quo. No real changes. Monetary policy will remain favorable. Rate hikes are not in the immediate future.

To QE3 or not QE3? That is the Question / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleQE3 or not QE3?  
That is the question.  Whether 'tis stupider in the US to erode its buying power with outrageous inflation or to take loans from overseas nations and, by defaulting, to end them?  Ben lies: we're sheep; No more; and by being sheep we suffer the heart-ache and the thousand pricing shocks unmeasured by the CPI, 'tis a consumer tax, despite what you had wish'd. Ben lies; we're sheep: living a dying dream: Aye, there's the rub; when fleecing sheep what jobs may come when we have scuttled all their buying power?

How to Use Capital Flows to Turn the Economy's Job Losses Into Portfolio Gains / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleShah Gilani, writes: Even though the U.S. unemployment rate fell to 8.8% in March from 10.1% at the height of the Great Recession, sidelined investors are still waiting for better news.

But what they don't realize is that it's a mistake to wait. Instead, what they should be doing is using so-called "capital flows," or the global trends that dictate the flow of investment dollars, to find new profit opportunities.

Stocks, U.S. Dollar, and VIX Not Anticipating Negative Reaction to Fed QE Meeting / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Chris_Ciovacco

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleExperience tells us the best approach to this week’s Fed trifecta (meeting, statement, and press conference) is (a) to be patient, (b) wait for the news to come out, (c) monitor the market’s reaction, and (d) make any adjustments to our allocation if needed. From a contingency planning perspective, it is helpful to study the markets for clues that may foreshadow the reaction to Wednesday’s Fed statement and press briefing.
