2011, Another Year of Living Dangerously / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Brady_Willett

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIf the crisis has a single lesson, it is that the too-big-to-fail problem must be solved” Ben Bernanke. September 2, 1010

“It is unconscionable that the fate of the world economy should be so closely tied to the fortunes of a relatively small number of giant financial firms. If we achieve nothing else in the wake of the crisis, we must ensure that we never again face such a situation.” Ben Bernanke. March 20, 2010

Worldwide deals worth $34 billion were announced on Sunday and Monday, bringing total M&A volume this year to more than $83 billion, up from $67 billion in the same period last year, the Financial Times reported.

Stock Market Through 1278 SPX.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Jack_Steiman

The market has been gravitating higher slowly but surely, no question. Over the past many weeks it had set up shop between the gap top low at 1262 and the 1278 as its high. A few tests down at 1262 looked like a breakdown was finally upon us, but that was not to be. There were many test back up to 1278, but failed as well, so it became a chess match between who would make the move first. The bulls pulled off the move today. It wasn't a shocking move higher as we're barely above 1278. Slightly less than half a percent above, but we are above, and that can't be denied by anyone. This opens the door to a move up to the top of the trend line at 1300 on the S&P 500. That chart is there for your viewing this evening. It seems as if this market doesn't waste a point. Although, by no means a guarantee, if the trend line is open to approximately 1300 on the SPX, it seems as if it will find a way to make it there, even if it doesn't hold once it does get there.

Socrates on Portugals Debt Crisis / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: PhilStockWorld

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article"Portugal will not request financial aid for the simple reason that it’s not necessary" – Socrates
Of course, that was Jose Socrates, Portugal’s Prime Minister, not Σωκρτης the great Philospoher, who was more famous for saying "False words are not only evil in themselves, but they infect the soul with evil" as well as "True knowledge exists in knowing that you know nothing." More apropos for this morning is the more famous Scocrates’ more famous observation that "True wisdom comes to each of us when we realize how little we understand about life, ourselves, and the world around us."

The Global Economic Crisis: Financial Fraud has Become Increasingly Pervasive / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2011

By: Bob_Chapman

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe U6 number fell to 16-7/8% from 17% last month, thus, the real unemployment number is 22-1/4%, off 3/8 of 1 percent in two months. The average duration of unemployment heads back up to a new record 34.2-weeks and when the share of the unemployed ranks looking for a job without success rises 2% to 44.3% you have a problem. It is hardly a winner. The workweek was unchanged at 34.3-hours. The employment rate was 58.3%, the same level it was at late in 1983. In order to re-ascend to peak employment levels 11 million jobs would have to be created. That cannot happen as the transnational conglomerates execute free trade, globalization, offshoring and outsourcing. That would be 2.75 million jobs annually over the next four years. Still millions of illegal aliens are streaming across our borders to find work and push American citizens out of their jobs.

World Stock Market Indices Due for a Correction? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: MarketTimingCycles

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe world Indices are due for a short-term correction, but the larger trend is still bullish. On January 10th last year we wrote: "The S&P500 has now touched the current upper trend line as formed since early last year. On January 15th 2010 we are also 45 weeks or 225 trading days after the March 2009 bottom. In Gann terms this point in time is typically a hard angle that typically come in as a high."  We now seem to be exactly at the same time for a correction to occur.

Gold and Markets Forecasts 2011 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Neil_Charnock

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWelcome to 2011 from GoldOz and we wish you a healthy & prosperous year. 

There is an old joke about being kept in the dark and fed manure – about people being treated like mushrooms.  The joke refers to how mushrooms are grown, in moist dark conditions however they are not fed manure anymore …yet people still are.  The knowledge that corporations and governments have been treating clients and their constituents in this manner is perhaps why the Wikkileaks blog is so popular.  Wikkileaks is supported by some high profile people.  It is causing embarrassment to people in high places and is of great interest to large numbers of people.  It appears education and disclosure are well sought – there is big demand.  People need and sometimes want to know the truth and they certainly need to learn financial intelligence.

Stock Market Yearly Cycle Low Approaching / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Toby_Connor

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSometime between early February and early April the market should drop down into a major yearly cycle low. Last year that cycle low came during the first week of February. 

Since the current daily cycle is now in the timing band for a bottom we should see an intermediate top fairly soon.

Why Wall Street's Record Performance Spells Danger For Investors / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleMartin Hutchinson writes: When U.S. taxpayers bailed out Wall Street back in 2008, the consensus was that this Main-Street-led handout would bring down the curtain on a 25-year stretch of rampant - and too often reckless - speculation.

But that hasn't been the case.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleEQUITY MARKETS

After two strong years equity markets are sitting in a slightly overbought status.  Technical indicators are flashing 'pause' and sentiment indicators are in areas which usually precede a correction.  Looking back over some historical indicators there is reason to be bullish for 2011.

Germany EWG ETF in Bullish Digestion Period / Stock-Markets / European Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Although the iShares MSCI Germany Index ETF (EWG) has experienced a 5-6% decline during the past week, my pattern analysis argues that all of the action off of the Nov 4 high at 24.92 represents a sideways, bullish digestion period. When complete this should resolve in another thrust to the upside that projects to 27.00-plus in a resumption of the larger bull leg off the May 2010 low at 17.97.

Top 3 Investment Threats and Opportunities for 2011 / Stock-Markets / Investing 2011

By: Midas_Letter

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 is just underway, and already, confusion reigns. My mother fell on her head at Machu Picchu and some kid in Arizona killed some decent folks in Arizona. My dog is in heat and its summer in Lima. See what I mean?

Ten days into the new year, there has rarely been a time when market commentators have been so thoroughly polarized in terms of the prospect for the immediate future. While the range of optimism to pessimism is exactly as broad as ever, the camps are crowded at either extreme of the scale, with the middle viewpoint, moderate and/or ambiguous, virtually uninhabited.

Europe, Spain and China Setting up Short Plays / Stock-Markets / Stock Index Trading

By: Jim_Farrish

Worry over European sovereign debt puts pressure on global stocks. We talked last week about opportunities developing in specific country ETFs on the upside, but the Portugal sovereign debt news today is putting some pressure on stock prices overseas. Europe ETF IEV broke below support at $38.60 today inviting the short sellers to take advantage of the downside risk.

Stock Market Bulls Have Bears on the Run Despite Poor Unemployment Report / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Money_Morning

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleJon D. Markman writes: Stocks survived a big test of the winter rally on Friday as they finished a positive week with mild losses.

The Friday session featured a report on non-farm payrolls that came in worse than expected, but not egregiously so. Energy, industrials and utilities fared the best, while financials and telecoms slipped the most. Treasuries blew higher across the board, showing again why we always say that the bonds love misery.

THE EWI ARGUMENT: A Critical Analysis of Robert Prechter and Elliott Wave International (March 2009-Present) / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Steven_Vincent

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSUMMARY

In this article I analyze the recent work of Robert Prechter’s “Elliott Wave International”, evaluating it in terms of the quality of epistemology, methodology, data integrity, interpretation, conclusions, recommendations and results. The analysis is limited in scope to the equities markets since March of 2009. Because of time constraints, counterpoints to much of the EWI argument can only be partially developed here, but I hope to give them a much fuller treatment in my forthcoming book, tentatively entitled, "Apocalypse Not Yet: Wave V and the End of Financialism".

Stock Market Elliott Wave Analysis and Forecast for Week Starting 10th Jan / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011

By: Tony_Caldaro

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article2011 was off to a good start as equities rallied and economic reports improved. Both the Payrolls report and ADP showed increases in employment, and the unemployment rate dropped. Auto sales, factory orders, construction spending, ISM services/manufacturing, consumer credit, M1-multiplier, and the WLEI all continued to improve. The only negatives were a slight increase in weekly jobless claims and a decline in the monetary base. The market responded with a new uptrend high at SPX 1278, extending the uptrend into its six month. For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.95%, and the NDX/NAZ were +2.30%. Asian markets gained 0.5%, European markets gained 0.1%, the Commodity equity group was flat, and the DJ World index was flat. Bonds gained 0.2%, Crude lost 3.3%, Gold slid 3.7%, and the USD gained 2.7%. Next week will be highlighted by the FED’s Beige book, Retail sales and the CPI/PPI.

Stock Market Current Trend and Turning Point / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2011

By: Andre_Gratian

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThere is nothing complicated or confusing about the current market trend(s). Let's go directly to the SPX Daily Chart, and I'll show you why.

This is a linear chart, with only the closes and not the intra-day highs and lows, making it easier to see the trends. Note that the various trends are all confined to channels which are all labeled according to their time span.
