Stock Market Response to US Economic Collapse in September? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleA rumor is swirling around the Internet that an inglorious end to the U.S. economy is imminent. Unlike previous rumors to this effect, this one carries the weight of recent events in the financial realm and has many believing the rumor will come to pass.

Let's examine some of the claims being made: On March 18, 2008, a “closed door” session of Congress was held for only the fourth time in history. According to House Rule XVII, clause 9, it is forbidden for members of the U.S. House of Representatives to reveal the discussions held behind those doors. The penalty for leaking such information includes loss of seniority, fines, reprimand, censure or expulsion. According to news sources, one purpose of the meetings was to discuss new surveillance techniques to be used by U.S. Homeland Security. Rumors continue to swirl as to what the other topics of discussion took place in that meeting.

Stock Market Technically Overbought Coupled Negative Seasonal Factors / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is Most of the major indices hit multi month highs last week.

Short Term The market is over bought.

As of last Friday, the S&P mid cap index was up for the 7 consecutive days for the first time in over a year. Longer term this is a good sign, but, for the next week or so continued upward progress is likely to be limited.

Profit From the Worlds Most Powerful Trading Alliance Between China and Japan / Stock-Markets / Asian Economies

By: Martin_Hutchinson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleChinese President Hu Jintao and Japanese Prime Minister Yauo Fukuda met recently and signed some modest cooperation agreements. That doesn't sound much to get excited about, until you consider how well the Chinese and Japanese economies fit together.

Think of it this way: With China's boundless supply of low-cost labor and Japan's superb education system - and an ability to work together that's clearly founded on considerable commonality of thinking - these two countries, as a pair, will be world-beaters.

The Rise of Stagflation Means the End of Fiat Asset Wealth / Stock-Markets / Stagflation

By: Richard_Gorton

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleStagflation, it's a fiat wealth killer: headline inflation is rising while jobs, manufacturing production, real estate, and economic indicators are falling: stocks and bond wealth of all types will be turning down in value.

Stagflation in the US
I choose to believe as HousingPanic does, that it's hilarious to believe the Government's inflation report which showed nearly 0% inflation .

Global Economy Heading for Economic Slump for 2008-09? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article(Bloomberg ) – “The Federal Reserve's direct loans of cash to commercial banks climbed to the highest level on record in the past week as money-losing lenders increasingly turn to the central bank for funds.” Is this a good thing, as the article implies? Banks are eager to borrow “cheap money” from the Federal Reserve because there isn't any to be had elsewhere. Many financial institutions that are painfully aware of their own bad paper and losses are unwilling to trade paper in the commercial markets due to general distrust among themselves. (“Maybe their paper is more toxic than our paper.”) Instead of money (IOUs) flowing freely between institutions, these IOUs have become the sludge that gums up the works because there is no market for it. The only source of funds is now the Federal Reserve Board, who is growing more concerned about their inability to keep the banks afloat.

Stock Markets 2008- Sell in May and Go Away? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleInvestors who want to beat the market need to be aware of the key trends that will affect their portfolios. To some this year looks like a classic “Sell in May and Go Away.” The theory is the market goes into hibernation for six months from May to November, and during the other six months it gets back into gear and makes its move up. The chart below, from Chart of the Day , shows the history of this phenomenon. Moreover, according to Standard & Poor's the November to April period outperformed the May to October period 69% of the time.

S&P Developing Bullish Pattern, While Crude Oil Still Refuses to Rest / Stock-Markets / Exchange Traded Funds

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThursday morning I posted a weekly S&P 500 chart for subscribers noting: "Although we still have two trading days remaining this week, a very interesting and potentially extremely bullish pattern has developed since the end of April. Let's notice that the cash SPX is poised to thrust out of a 3-week bullish consolidation pattern if the price structure climbs and sustains above 1422.72." Read full article...

Credit Crisis Investment Round Table- There's Still Life After Sub-prime / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2008

By: William_R_Thomson

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIS the earthquake that shook the world's leading financial markets last autumn over, or are there still damaging aftershocks to come - in the markets themselves and in the macro economy? This is the question that The Business Times put to a group of international investment experts and the responses in general were encouraging for investors. There is money to be made even in the immediate aftermath of the crisis, not least in commodities. But investment strategies need to be thought out even more carefully than usual at a time such as this. Our four experts set out their thinking - and their model portfolios - for the benefit of BT readers.

Nasdaq Hits Upside Trendline Channel / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

The Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) continue to stair-step higher towards the top of the March-May channel at 50.00/20, which should provide the next serious challenge to the powerful 8-week advance. My overall technical work is warning me to be prepared for another attempt by the bears to reverse the direction of the Q's, which if successful should press prices back towards the 48.30/00 support zone. This should not be construed as a call to short the Q's -- at least not yet anyway.

Institutional Selling Warns of Stock Market Weakness / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Marty_Chenard

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWhich index will be right ... the Dow Jones Industrials or the Institutional index with their "core holdings"?

Chart 1 is a 2003-2008 graph of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.  Note how it has had a 5 year up channel.  The channel broke to the downside ... but then the DOW moved back into the channel.

Triage In Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Darryl_R_Schoon

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleGlobal financial markets are in extreme triage following the credit contraction of August 2007. It is believed central bankers are trying to restore markets to help the economy. In truth, they are like life insurance companies fighting to keep a wealthy patient alive so the high premiums will continue to be paid and the large death payout will be postponed.

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAhead of the vote for Russian prime minister, Vladimir Putin set forth plans for a robust macroeconomic financial policy, reigniting the stock market to 2,280--a 3 percent gain--crossing the 2,200 mark for the first time since January as investor confidence swelled. Putin's primary goal: Reduce the tax burden on the oil sector to stimulate production and crude oil refining and lower inflation to single digits within the next few years.

The Falling US Dollar is No Friend to the US Financials / Stock-Markets / Banking Stocks

By: Donald_W_Dony

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe affects of the declining U.S. currency goes beyond simply providing inflationary pressures, stronger foreign currencies and high gold prices, it also has a direct impact on how portfolios should be weighted. Since the beginning of the waterfall drop of the world's reserve currency, funds have rotated into energy stocks and out of financials. And this action is never favourable for the S&P 500.

Stock Market Trend Analysis for May 2008 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Hans_Wagner

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTo make money in the stock market it is important to follow the trend. It is best to begin with the big picture in mind and then work our way down to weekly and then daily views of the charts. You will notice that the chart and the value of the indicators change as we move from a monthly to a weekly and then a daily chart. This is a normal part of the technical analysis.

Let's start with the long term view of the S&P 500. The Relative Strength Index (RSI) seems to be a good indicator of the cyclical bull and bear markets. In addition, the 78-week Exponential Moving Average (EMA) acts as support in a bull market and resistance in a bear market.

Euro/Dollar Topping, S&P 500 Stocks Index Bottoming? / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTwo very significant technical breakouts could be approaching at the moment that will confirm a near-term top in the Euro/Dollar and an intermediate-term bottom in the cash S&P 500.

As we speak (Wednesday, May 7) the Euro/$ is pressing towards a test of key support at 1.5360/40, while the cash SPX appears to be poised to thrust above its 7-month resistance line in the vicinity of 1421. Should these breaks occur, the Euro points to 1.5000 next, while the SPX points to 1460.
