The Stock Markets October Panic Window Approaches / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Captain_Hook

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleAdding to the list of things that can go wrong from our last discussion , things that could cause a possible dislocation in the stock market during the possible panic window opening next month, we have an astute observation by Rick Ackerman. Then you have Gary North out further discussing Fed antics associated with a contracting monetary base , which he is suggesting will topple the equity complex, and possibly the system. Here, you can't blame the Fed for instituting such policy. Again, the idea behind constricting growth in the monetary base is to support the dollar ($) and curb the inflationary effects of easing rate policy. And while I agree with the conclusions of both these gentlemen, as stated in our last commentary the timing associated with when such factors will come home to roost is still very much up in the air however, not imminent by any means.

Stock Market Update: Niagara in a Barrel / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

CDO Bad Debt Bank Losses Yet to Be Reported as Stock Markets Form Topping Patterns / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleWall Street is already betting that next week's earnings at the nation's biggest banks will be dismal. What remains to be seen is just how bad they will be. Hundreds of billions of asset-backed paper has had to be disposed of. Yet so far the losses of banks that have already reported this quarter are less than $20 billion. Could they have gotten off so easily? The preponderance of evidence shows that much of the paper, which includes subprime mortgages, auto loans and credit card debt has not yet found buyers.

Equities Topping But Crude Oil Has Further Higher to Gush / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleSo far, Thursday's plunge in the Nasdaq, as gauged by the QQQQ's, represents only a "minor" pullback within the dominant August-Ocotber uptrend -- unless, of course, this recovery rally represents an impending secondary failure at the top of the Aug-Sept channel.

My work argues that it is the latter, and that the Q's will grind a bit higher on Monday, and then put in a second high coordinate within a near-term topping process in the 53.00-54.00 area.

McHugh's London FTSE 100 Index , German DAX, and Australia Stock Market Forecasts / Stock-Markets / Elliott Wave Theory

By: Robert_McHugh_PhD

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe London FTSE, German DAX, and Australia's SPASX200 are all approaching a top. The FTSE looks to be finishing a wave b-up inside a wave a-down, b-up, c-down for a correction of the recent multiyear Bull market. It is completing a Rising Bearish Wedged for wave b-up. Prices have exceeded the upper Bolling Band, two standard deviations above its 20 day moving average. It has also reached the 10 day average of each day's highs. These are normally places where tops occur. The same is true of the German DAX.

Semiconductor Tek stocks Gap Down Suggests More Downside / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Big gap down this morning has pressed the Semiconductor HLDRs (AMEX: SMH) below both its rising 200 DMA and its 15-month support line (36.40/30), which could trigger potentially significant technical damage to the intermediate-term chart structure -- if the weakness sticks for the remainder of today's session. Having said that, however, my pattern and momentum work (hourly and daily) are encouraging me to remain short even if the SMH manages to grind its way up to 37.00/20 again, largely because my primary scenario has morphed into a bearish one.

The Greatest Stocks Bull Market in History - Chinese Shanghai Red-chips / Stock-Markets / Chinese Stock Market

By: Gary_Dorsch

Best Financial Markets Analysis Article“There is a bubble growing. Investors should be concerned about the risks,” warned Cheng Siwei, the vice-chairman of the National People's Congress in an interview with the Financial Times on January 31st. “But in a bull market, people will invest relatively irrationally. Every investor thinks they can win. But many will end up losing. But that is their risk and their choice,” warned Cheng.

Buy Stocks on Weakness / Stock-Markets / Global Stock Markets

By: Yiannis_G_Mostrous

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe bull continues to charge ahead. I still expect some kind of correction at some point this month because it would be uncharacteristic for the markets to continue going up with no interruptions.

The main risk remains the shaky situation in the credit world. Consequently, the slowdown of the US economy could turn into a recession that would be very bad for the global economy. At this time, the probability for a recession by the end of the year or the first quarter of 2008 is around 50 percent.

Nasdaq Down-spike Not a Mere Dip / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Frankly, I am not surprised that the major equity market ETFs in general and the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) in plunged to relieve some of the excessive overbought condition that has developed in recent days. However, the fact that the reversal emerged right at the top of the Aug-Oct trading channel, and right at the upside target measured off of the July-Aug base pattern suggests strongly to me that a meaningful first crack in the uptrend has occurred…

Stock Market Analysis Suggests a Drop of More than 10% - The Fingers of Instability, Part 8 / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Ty_Andros

Series Introduction – Click Here

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleTea Leaves
In this edition of Fingers of Instability we are going to look at the last ninety days since the July Highs in stocks and commodities and look at what the numerous markets, including money supply, credit markets, stocks, gold, copper crude oil, and the dollar, have done since that time. It offers an interesting perspective on what has transpired and the finger prints of what we can expect in the near future. This issue has many interesting charts and graphs for perspective. However, we must key off money and credit creation first and foremost as it colors everything else. Regular readers know I have outlined the emerging “Crack up Boom” (see Tedbit archives at www.TraderView.com ) and the indirect exchange, as outlined by Ludwig Von Mises, that we will be seeing for maybe the next decade or more. It is on plain display in this missive.

Hedging Your Income Stocks Portfolio Against Credit and Inflation Risks / Stock-Markets / Dividends

By: Roger_Conrad

Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleIncome investments come in all shapes and sizes. But all have one thing in common as far as we're concerned: We've got to buy and hold ‘em to get the most out of them. 

Part of that is axiomatic. You can't collect the distributions unless you stick around for them to be paid. Individual bonds are the exception because they accrue interest as long as you hold them. But as far as stocks, Canadian trusts, limited partnerships, income-paying funds, preferred stocks or anything else goes, you've got be in there on the ex-dividend dates or you won't get paid.

Nasdaq Nearing a Correction / Stock-Markets / Tech Stocks

By: Mike_Paulenoff

Now that the Q's (NASDAQ: QQQQ) have broken to the upside and satisfied the upside target from last week's consolidation between 53.00 and 52.50, today's new but unconfirmed high takes on more significant meaning -- and warns me that the Q's are at or are very near to an area from where I am expecting a correction -- into the 52.00 area initially, on the way to 51.00. Maybe the release of the FOMC minutes triggers the sell-off, or alternatively triggers and spikes towards 53.50/80 first. In either scenario, my near-term work is warning me that higher highs are not sustainable.

Wall Street Stock Market Rally...Credit Crunch Crisis Over? / Stock-Markets / Credit Crunch

By: Regent_Markets

Last week the ECB (European central bank) and MPC (UK central bank) opted to take a 'wait and see' approach with interest rates. Both announced that they would be leaving interest rates on hold, preferring to see how their respective economies hold up after the summer turmoil. Many economists are expecting both to move to a loosening bias in the future, with the UK predicted to cut rates before the end of the year.

NOLTE NOTES - Stock Market Rally - Where's the Volume? / Stock-Markets / US Stock Markets

By: Paul_J_Nolte

Imagine watching your favorite football team on a Sunday afternoon and hearing the following from the announcers: “without any penalty flags, the (your team!) will be starting at the 50 yard line instead of inside the 5 where the ball was whistled dead”. You'd be turning up the volume way high to figure out what just happened. The economic figures on employment could be viewed the same way – after indicating the economy lost jobs last month, this month showed a gain AND the prior to months were revised to show decent gains – with little explanation.
