Is it Time to Double Up on Brazil in your BRIC Portfolio? / Stock-Markets / Brazil

By: Michael_K_Dawson

BRIC is becoming a fairly common acronym amongst investors.  The term was coined in a research paper by Goldman Sachs in 2003 to describe an economic block composed of Brazil, Russia, India and China.  The combination has the potential to be larger than the G6 in US dollar terms by 2050. Since the paper's release, investors have been scrambling for ways to leverage this theme.  Last fall, Claymore introduced the first BRIC ETF (EBB). 

Before the Claymore ETF, the easiest way to invest into the theme was to use country specific ETFs.  In the past, I have used EWZ (Brazil), TRF (Russia), IFN (India) and FXI (China) to capture the trend. An advantage of the country ETF approach is the ability to specify your own weighting for each country versus being locked in to Claymore's weighting.

Special China Stock Market Update - Another Shanghai Index Correction Due? / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Marty_Chenard

Most of you know that I spend at least 15 hours a week on new research or exploring new market patterns. I found something very unusual going on in the Shanghai Index, unusual enough that I thought it was important to share it with you ...

Will the Shanghai 180 Index correct within 4 days and take our markets down with it?

This morning, we made a very interesting observation about the Shanghai 180 Index. The Shanghai is an index that we are watching pretty closely due to its correlation with our Feb. 27th. market drop.

I will show you two Shanghai 180 charts this morning with a very interesting pattern.

The Yen Carry Trade Means New Rules for Global Investing in 2007 / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: Gary_Dorsch

Jesse Livermore, widely regarded as one of the greatest stock market operators of all-time, considered himself a humble student of the market until his last day in 1940. “I study the market, because it's my business to trade. In the forty years which I have devoted to making speculation a successful business venture, I am still discovering new rules to apply to that business,” he once remarked.

“Experience has taught me the way a market behaves is an excellent guide for an operator to follow. Observation gives you the best tips of all, and the behavior of a certain market is all you need at times. You observe, and then experience shows you how to profit by variations from the usual, that is to say, from the probable.” Read full article... Read full article...

Financial Markets Wrap - US Economy, Bonds, Currencies and Stock Market / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Douglas_V_Gnazzo

March ISM's factory gauge came in at 50.9 down from 52.3 the previous month. It remains just barely above the important 50 level. Most of the internal figures were weak as well.

The new orders index fell to 51.6 from 54.9. The Production Index fell to 53 from 54.1 and the Employment Index fell to 48.7 from 51.1. Even the Prices Paid Index fell to 65.5 from 69.

The ISM's non-manufacturing index fell to 52.4 in March, the lowest level in almost four years. Not the best of reports.

The Labor Department reported the jobless rate fell to 4.4%. Employment increased 180,000 that followed an 113,000 rise in February.

Nolte Notes - Wall Street Hops on Jobs Data and PMI / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Save for the still frigid upper tier of states, spring has sprung! (I'll save the frozen robin jokes) A bit of celebration was also in the economic numbers released on Friday, as the employment situation is looking much better – good for stocks, bad for bonds. While the guess may have been too low, the actual number added to payrolls was still not huge.

With all the monthly revisions, the average twelve-month gain has been falling for a year, after peaking at a rate well below those of the past 45 years. Many will argue that 125k in new jobs is the same as 250 is years past miss the point that the decline in jobs in 2002 was in line or larger than past job losses. Wage growth continues at roughly a 4% clip, a concern, but it merely matches prior peaks since the early 80's.

Stock Market Severe Correction Commentary - Don't Listen to the Talking Heads / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Clif_Droke

Watch the market!

I ran across an interesting article in the Financial Times on Wednesday.  It caught my eye because of the headline:  “Fund sells ahead of severe ‘correction'”.  Here's what the article had to say:

 “A leading UK fund manager has sold off around half the equities in the portfolios he oversees in anticipation of an imminent and severe market correction.  Ken Murray, the founder and chief executive of Blue Planet Investment Management, has revealed he has offloaded equities and cut the gearing on the firm's portfolios to zero in the belief a U.S. economic recession is set to wipe more than 20 percent from the value of global stock markets.

Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report - 7th April 07 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: After a little rest this week the market is likely to move up sharply.

Short Term
The S&P mid cap index (MID) has been the champ at putting together unbroken strings of consecutive up days.

The first chart shows the MID in magenta with an indicator showing the percentage of the previous 6 trading days that were up. The indicator touches the top of the chart when there have been 6 or more consecutive up days and it touches the bottom of the chart when there have been 6 or more consecutive down days. It is a little difficult to see, but, as of Thursday's close, the indicator is at the top of the chart.

The Private Equity Bubble - When smart money does dumb things … / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets

By: Money_and_Markets

Mike Larson writes : During the housing bubble, a lot of lenders lost their minds. It was as if some mass psychosis took over even the experienced executives, convincing them to do exceedingly dumb things.

They didn't bother checking borrowers' incomes or assets …

They didn't care if the loan covered the entire value of the house …

And they weren't the least bit concerned that all kinds of exotic mortgages were being doled out to people with horrible credit histories.

The Right Market at The Right Time - Canadian Income Trusts a Screaming Buy / Stock-Markets / Canadian Stock Market

By: Roger_Conrad

Remember when investors could retire and live well on a modest nest egg? Remember when taxes were only 15% a year, and when you didn't have to worry about losing your shirt before the closing bell?

That way of life has gradually been taken from you. But this letter is going to bring it all back, courtesy of the Canadian government. They've invented a whole new kind of investment, one that's pulling hundreds of billions of US dollars across the border into Canada today.

In a nutshell, Canadian Income Trusts are a brilliant structure that allows a business to avoid taxes--all taxes. That's one pretty obvious reason they're so popular.

Four Rules for Investing in Asian Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Investing

By: Money_and_Markets

Less than a month ago, everyone was talking about the Chinese stock market's 9.2% single-day loss, and the global sell-off it triggered. At the time, I urged you to hold steady and treat the drop as a buying opportunity. I said,

"I believe this is an unwarranted knee-jerk reaction. But it's also a good thing for longer-term investors. There are dozens of Asian blue chip stocks that have now come back down to levels that look pretty darn appealing to me."

That proved to be good advice. Reason: The Shanghai Composite Index hit a new, all-time high last week. Yup, in just four weeks, the Chinese stock market recovered everything it had previously lost … and then some!

Plus, it gives me a chance to survey the opportunities here.

Stocks & Commodity Markets Elliott Wave Analysis - Show me the money! / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Dominick

Surprise, surprise, another volatile week. The bears got their big selloff, but it was in corn, not in the S&P's! Corn opened down lock limit as the S&P's created great trading opportunities for the “unbiased” trader.

As we ended 2006, I promised 2007 would be the year of volatility, and hasn't that been the truth?! It feels like only yesterday we were grinding up each day point by point. Friday's closing bell wrapped up March, as well as the first quarter, but investors who were pegged to the S&P are in for a surprise when they receive their quarterly statements. The S&P closed 2 points from its 2006 close.

Stock Market volitility for April but should end the year Strongly Higher / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Adam_Oliensis

Dear Speculators,

We've been studying the 4-year cycle in the stock market for quite some time here. And over the past couple of weeks we've been entertaining two different hypotheses. Our working assumption had been that the 4-yr cycle low came before it was scheduled to in '06, forming in July and launching the new '06 - '10 cycle with the July-February rally from the 1220s up to the 1460 area.

This first chart plots the market's percentage gain off the July low (black line) against the median 4-year cycle performance since 1962 (blue line) as well as against the average performance (red line). The grey lines measure 1 standard deviation from the median. And the horizontal axis measures the number of trading days from the launch of the new cycle; this particular chart plots only the first 2 years of the cycle.

Weekly Stock Market Technical Analysis Report - 31st March 2007 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Burk

The good news is: Next week as well as the entire month of April have had a very positive seasonal bias.

Short Term : Last week new lows on the NASDAQ peaked at 56 on Thursday well below the 159 seen on March 5. The high for the NYSE was 32 on Wednesday also well below the 106 reported on March 5.

The chart below covers the past year showing the OTC in orange and a 10% trend (19 day EMA) of NASDAQ new lows (OTC NL) in black. OTC NL has been plotted on an inverted Y axis so increasing new lows move the indicator downward (up is good).

The upward movement of OTC NL was arrested on Thursday casting some suspicion on rally off the March lows.

Will the Sub-Prime Mortgages Implosion Meltdown the Stock Market? / Stock-Markets / Subprime Mortgage Risks

By: Clif_Droke

Most of the focus among investors and non-investors alike recently has been the sub-prime mortgage “implosion” and its possible impact on the stock markets and the economy.  Therefore I'm dedicating most of tonight's report to an analysis of this special situation.

Since I'm not an expert in this particular area, the best analysis I can offer other than anecdotal evidence based on personal observation is to share with you my own collection of opinions from those whose expertise and analysis of similar situations in the past has proven correct in a vast majority of cases.  In other words, we're going to see what some of the best in the business have to say on this subject.  Then we'll take the analysis once step further and turn to the ultimate barometer of business/economic conditions, namely the stock market, and see what Mr. Market itself has to say.

Q4 Corporate Profits Sink - Thank Goodness For Wall St / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_L_Kasriel

The important new information in the Commerce Department's third guess at last year's fourthquarter GDP was its first guess at the same quarter's corporate profits. Commerce guessed low. Before-tax profits adjusted for inventory valuation and capital consumption turned negative sequentially, submerging 0.30% (not annualized) in Q4:2006. In fact, after a Q1:2006 surge of 12.60%, corporate profit growth was downright anemic in the last three quarters of 2006, as was real GDP growth (see Chart 1 below).

With volume growth slowing and labor costs rising, it is no wonder that profits growth is now struggling. It is doubtful things will turn around soon unless Circuit City's plan to effectively cut the salaries of many of its employees becomes the norm.

China to Take Down World Financial Markets / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

Guys,

We are looking right now at the following situation. China is about to drop the world markets in stemming their bubbles – stocks and real estate and manufacturing. I notified PS subscribers that China is going to prick the world stock bubbles – as the emerging manufacturing giant, just like the USA did in the 1929/30’s.

The Shanghai Stock Market Bubble and the "Euro/Yen" Tug-of-War / Stock-Markets / Yen Carry Trade

By: Gary_Dorsch

"Free markets for Free men", was a slogan etched on the floor jackets of several traders at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange in the 1980's. But today, the slogan for traders is "Rigged markets for Central bankers," who try to move currency and stock markets with their control of the money spigots and timely "jawboning" to the media outlets, when markets become unruly. Today, trading in currencies, precious metals, and stock market indexes has turned into a game of central bank watching.

Right now, two of the most important pieces of the global market jig-saw puzzle are the Shanghai Stock Index bubble and the Tug-of-war over the "Euro /yen" carry trade. What happens in Shanghai can have a big influence over China's monetary policy, and is of great interest to commodity traders and Asian stock markets. The upcoming battle over the Euro /yen exchange rate can have a big influence over Japanese monetary policy and stock markets in Europe.
