Why it is Still Best to use an Agent for your Financial Investments / Stock-Markets / Investing 2019

By: Submissions

When it comes to investments, any one of us might be tempted to go it alone. Gone are the days when there was no other way to access the markets save through a stockbroker, and you needed to make an appointment with your bank manager in order to move your money around. Now, anyone can buy, sell, invest and manage their portfolio online, provided they have the inclination and a modicum of financial understanding.

Nevertheless, there is still much to be said for going through an agent when it comes to managing your investments. An investment agent can be broadly described as any person or body empowered to represent or act on behalf of another person or party in financial negotiations. Depending on the nature of the contract between agent and client, the agent will be authorised to perform certain services and to act in the client's interests in certain matters. Because of this, the agent cannot enter into other contracts that may create a conflict of interest.

How Market Valuation Affects Future Stock Returns / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: John_Mauldin

The price/earnings ratio (P/E) has a multiplier effect on stock returns. Over 10–20 years, it can dramatically increase or decrease your total return.

In the secular bear market of the 1960s and ‘70s, shrinking P/E ate away almost all the return from earnings growth and dividend yield.

In the 1980s and ‘90s, rising P/E more than doubled the return for investors.

But P/E’s effect goes beyond earnings and capital gains. It has a big effect on dividend yield, too.

Are Investors Blind To The Stocks Upside Super Cycle? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Our research team believes the upside pricing potential of the US market could be under-estimated by global traders and investors.  We’ve been pouring over the charts and data trying to substantiate our hypothesis with our proprietary price modeling systems and technical analysis systems for the past few days.  Our results suggest the US stock market, in comparison to the global markets, could still be under-priced at current levels based on investor sentiment and this could be just the beginning of a super cycle rally we have seen happen one before.

Last year during the price rotation in February 2018, we hypothesized the current rotation was not the end of a 5-Wave Elliot Wave formation.  We believe the January 2018 highs are potentially the end of Wave 3 which is part of a much larger Wave A upside price swing.  Our research suggested that the retracements in 2010 and 2011 were not sufficient to qualify as any type of traditional Elliot Wave structure, thus the retracement in 2015 qualified as a Wave B formation.  This presented an upside Wave A size of +366%, or +$89.66, on the QQQ chart.  The Wave C move, from the lows of 2015 to the highs of 2018, presented an upside Wave C size of +121%, or +$102.77.  Given these Wave A and C sizes, we believe the upside potential of a final Wave E (the last wave higher) in the US stock market could be at least 100% to 161% the size of the last Wave C formation.

Stock Market Crash Edition / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Troy_Bombardia

With the 10 year – 3 month yield curve now inverted, it is time to look at the long term bearish case for stocks.

Long Term

Only 2 factors affect the stock market’s long term outlook: valuations and fundamentals (macro).

The U.S. stock market’s valuation is high. You know it, I know it, everyone knows it. The financial media, financial experts and social media have been saying “U.S. stocks are expensive!” for most of the past 10 years.

Friday's Stock Market Sell-Off - New Downtrend or Just Correction? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Paul_Rejczak

Friday's trading session was bearish, as stocks retraced their Thursday's advance and continued lower ahead of the weekend. The S&P 500 index was the highest since the early October on Thursday. So was the Friday's sell-off a medium-term downward reversal or still just a correction?

The U.S. stock market indexes lost 1.8-2.5% on Friday, as investors' sentiment worsened following some global economic data releases. The S&P 500 index retraced more of its October-December downward correction of 20.2% recently. The broad stock market's gauge traded just around 3% below September the 21st record high of 2,940.91. But then it got close to the 2,800 mark again. The Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 1.8% and the Nasdaq Composite lost 2.5% on Friday.

The nearest important resistance level of the S&P 500 index is now at around 2,820, marked by the recent support level. The next resistance level is at 2,850-2,860, marked by the early October local lows. On the other hand, the support level is now at 2,800, marked by the recent resistance level and the daily gap up of 2,798.32-2,799.78. The support level is also at 2,785, marked by the daily gap up of 2,784.00-2,786.73.

Potentially Powerful Stock Market Headwinds / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Mike_Paulenoff

For the past four Sundays, my technical work has been focused on the extent of the post-Christmas recovery rally in the S&P 500 (SPX) in relation to the Sep-Dec 2018 correction from the Sep 21 all-time high at 2940.91 to the Dec 26 low at 2346.58.

Since mid-Feb, when the SPX climbed and sustained above the 62% Fibonacci retracement zone at 2713.70 (+1% target overshoot at 2740.84), I have been refocused on the next higher 76.4% Fib resistance level at 2803.50 (+1% target overshoot at 2832). Purely from a Fibonacci perspective, the 2803.50 to 2832 zone on the SPX represented the next natural resistance zone from where the recovery rally might exhaust itself.

US Bonds Call “BS” on the Stock Market Ramp-A-Thon / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Graham_Summers

Jerome Powell burst the Everything Bubble… and now he’s desperately trying to put it back together again.

Having generated the single largest mis-allocation of capital in history from 2008-2016 by manipulating bond yields to extraordinary lows, the Fed, lead by new Fed Chair Jerome Powell decided it’d be wise to embark on the single most aggressive tightening schedule in history.

I started warning that this would blow up in spectacular fashion as early as July-August 2018. The issue was not the Fed tightening, but the pace at which it was tightening. There was no real reason for the Fed to raise rates and engage in QT at the pace it did. Only a fool would think that doing this wasn’t going to cause some serious damage to a financial system that was more leveraged than any other time in history.

Stock Market Russell 2000 Leads The Way For Technical Analysts / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

The Russell 2000 ETF continues to deliver critical technical and longer-term price patterns for skilled technicians.  Combining the IWM chart with the Transportation Index, Oil, Gold, and others provide a very clear picture of what to expect in the immediate future.

Recently, we posted a research article about the Head-n-Shoulders pattern setting up in the $INDU.  Again, the IWM chart is also showing a very clear Head-n-Shoulders pattern with critical resistance near $159.50 and support near $144.25.  Our researchers, at Technical Traders Ltd., believe this right Shoulder will prompt a downside market move towards support near $144.25 before a downward sloping wedge pattern sets up.  This first downward price leg will setup and congesting wedge formation that will, eventually, break to the upside and drive market prices higher.

Your Future Stock Returns Might Unpleasantly Surprise You / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: John_Mauldin

Every investor knows that “past performance is not indicative of future results.” Yet many embrace century-long averages as a reasonable guess for future returns.

Back in the late 1990s, we were told that the long-term average return (~10%) was a reasonable long-term assumption. Instead, the S&P 500 Index has only gained about 3% annually since 1999—just over half the historical average.

This forced Baby Boomers to work longer and harder to retire, as well as save more of their income.

The Stock Market Chart No One of CNBC Wants You to See / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Graham_Summers

In the last two months every single Fed Hawk has given up on normalization.

Every. Single. One.

Throughout 2018 Fed Chair Powell maintained that he was focused EXCLUSIVELY on normalizing Fed policy by:

1)   Reducing its Balance Sheet to pre-crisis levels of ~$1 trillion, a whopping $3.5 trillion lower than the $4.5 trillion it was when Powell took the helm at the Fed.

2)   Raising interest rates to the neutral rate (the rate of GDP growth/ inflation).

Dow Jones Stock Market Topping Pattern / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Our research team believes a moderately mild price rotation will unfold over the next 30 to 60 days where the US Stock Market will rotate downward.  Particularly, the $INDU (Dow Jones Industrials) should move lower towards the $23,000 to 24,000 before finding support based on the longer term weekly chart. Keep in mind we are not saying the price is going to fall. We are stating price could correct in a big way if recent support levels are broken. If so, then 23,000-24,000 levels should be reviewed.

We have been warning about a specific price pattern that we believe is currently in the process of setting up in the US Stock Market.  This pattern is a “Falling Wedge” pattern.  We’ve seen a few of these over the past 5+ years in downward retracing price swings.  They typically act as a means for the price to explore a “momentum base” setup before breaking out to the upside.  You can read our previous research here.

Stock Market Ready for Take-Off? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2019

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Is the S&P 500 (SPX) on the verge of a sustained upside breakout as it pushes through multiple prior failed rally peaks just above 2800? This week should provide some answers.

Actually, a sustained climb above 2832 (on a closing basis) also will answer the question we have been asking in these weekly articles for the past four weeks: Will the powerful advance from the Dec 26 low at 2346.58 be stymied in the 2775 to 2832 resistance zone?

This zone is the area that measures 76.4% of the entire prior Sep-Dec correction -- what we're calling the "Fibonacci Recovery Price Resistance Zone" -- and in the last 20 trading days the SPX has probed but failed to hurdle the upper boundary (2832) of this zone no less than five times!
