Stock Market Dow Trend Forecast for September to December 2015 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Nadeem_Walayat

The 15% drop in average stock prices during the past month has galvanised a growing number of bears to once more dig out ancient text book reasons for why this is the time for the stocks bear market to finally begin, and not only that but keep making definitive statements for the expectations for market crash's that always fail to materialise for the obvious reason that a crash is a panic event that can only at best be discerned no earlier than during the preceding day. Even then the probability would favour the market ending higher on the so called crash day because market crashes are NOT common events.

Why Are Stocks Going Berserk? It’s All About Expectations / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Mike_Whitney

If you’ve been following the markets for the last three weeks, you’ve probably figured out that something is wrong. The markets are no longer behaving the way they should, and that has people worried. Very worried. In the last 15 trading days, the Dow Jones has experienced an unprecedented 13 triple-digit days, which means that stocks have been sharply rising and falling without any rhyme or reason. The financial media has tried to explain-away the extreme volatility by pointing to slower growth in China, troubles in the Emerging Markets or various dismal data-points. But none of these adequately explain what’s going on.

How to Prevent Costly Losses During Big Market Panics / Stock-Markets / Investing 2015

By: DailyWealth

Porter Stansberry writes: Today's essay is about something no one ever wants to talk about: The horrible, out-of-control feeling that overwhelms investors and leads them to make irrational financial decisions with terrible consequences. Panic.
 
For wise investors, it's not a question of if other folks are going to panic, it's a question of when. Today, I'm going to give you a far better understanding of what causes investors to panic.

FED Induced Sharp Drop in Stock Market Coming! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Brad_Gudgeon

The planets are coming together for the perfect storm on September 17th. First we have Mercury Retrograde, which often occurs at a top for the precious metals sector (and even the stock market). Then we have Jupiter opposing Neptune while Saturn enters into the sign of Sagittarius. Exaggerated hysteria or panic would be the best way to explain this astrological set up. My best guess is: the FED won't raise rates this time, but will hint strongly for the need to do so very soon (China may have nipped a September hike in the bud by devaluing the yuan). Everyone is expecting a retest of the August 24-25 lows anyway, so this is the perfect excuse to take it down. It also fits the pattern of an X wave of [B] bottom within an IMP (Irregular Megaphone Pattern -- discussed a few weeks ago). The big question is: will we fall just below the SPX cash price of 1867 near 1850 or below the SPY or S&P 500 futures price set the morning of August 24, 2015?

By: Tony_Caldaro

The holiday shortened week started at SPX 1921. After a Tuesday morning, and Wednesday morning, gap up opening the SPX hit 1989. The market then declined to SPX 1937 by Thursday morning. Then the market rallied again to end the week at SPX 1961. For the week the SPX/DOW were +2.05%, the NDX/NAZ were +2.15%, and the DJ World index was +2.05%. Economic reports for the week were mostly negative. On the uptick: consumer credit, plus weekly jobless claims and the budget deficit improved. On the downtick: the WLEI, export/import prices, wholesale inventories, consumer sentiment and long term investor sentiment. Next week will be highlighted by the FOMC, Industrial production, and Options expiration.

Waiting On The Fed... What The Stock Market Likely Wants... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

The market seems to have found some stability after the big push lower that saw the market flash crash one day, and even though it recovered some, it saw some real technical damage, once the heavy selling episode was over. We moved from one long-term base into a new base that's actually larger than the one that saw us go nowhere for eight months.

QE Forever Continues Unabated / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Sol_Palha

It is a fraud to borrow what we are unable to pay. Publilius Syrus

Corporations are using share buyback programs to manipulate earnings, by reducing the float of outstanding shares.  This ploy was not as ubiquitous before, but today it is being used rather indiscriminately by companies as a way to boost EPS. This modern form of alchemy turns would-be losses into profits or can be utilized to make modest profits appear to be impressive in nature. We are now in the paradigm of lies and deceit.  In these conditions, the truth does not thrive.

Pay Your Fair Share (to the Teachers’ Union) / Stock-Markets / Pensions & Retirement

By: Casey_Research

By Justin Spittler

Taxpayers take note…you could get a much bigger tax bill than you expect.

The California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) recently announced that it may move 12% of its assets, or $20 billion, out of stocks and bonds.

CalSTRS is the second-largest public pension fund in the U.S. It manages roughly $191 billion for 868,000 teachers in California.

Stock Market Brace Yourself! / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Puru_Saxena

BIG PICTURE - Last month, the multi-month trading range on Wall Street ended with an abrupt break to the downside and once key support levels were violated, we witnessed an epic swoon! Thereafter, due to direct stock buying by the Chinese policymakers, the stock markets stabilised somewhat and we got a sharp relief rally.

As things stand today, we have already had the initial plunge from the multi-month distribution pattern and after the bounce; the S&P500 Index is now trading just beneath an area of overhead resistance (Figure 1). Going forwards, we are of the view that the bellwether index will struggle to get past the two zones of overhead resistance depicted on the chart. Even if it does surpass those levels, the now declining 200-day moving average (red line on chart) should keep the festivities in check.

The Stocks Bear Makes a Welcome Return / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Clif_Droke

The S&P 500 Index had its worst August since 2001, while the Dow’s 6.6 percent drop was its biggest since declining 15 percent in August 1998.  Most investors consider the September-October period to be the witching months for equities, but the past month was a painful reminder to many of them just how bad August can sometimes be.

Stock Market Rebounds from Crash Low Amidst Extreme Volatility / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Harry_Boxer

The stock market indices had a very volatile, difficult day today. The day started out with a move up. They continued upward in a 5-wave advance until early afternoon when they spiked. At that point, they completed the 5-wave advance near resistance, and then pulled back in a 5-wave decline, only to snapback into the close and finish with a positive day.

It was a tough session to trade stocks today.

Buy Gold, Sell the S&P / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: DeviantInvestor

Buy low, sell high!  As of today, September 3, 2015, the better choices are buying gold and selling the S&P 500 Index and relevant stocks.

Why?

Examine the graph of the ratio of Gold to S&P 500 Index for the past 25 years.  The ratio is low now and likely will correct higher.  I think gold will move higher and the S&P will move lower.

Stock Market Sentiment Update / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Sentiment

By: Gary_Tanashian

In the last 2 NFTRH editions, we noted extremely over bearish market sentiment conditions in Rydex bull/bear fund allocations and in Small Speculators’ net short positions. These sentiment indicators have been reset to traditional correction-ending, even bear market-ending levels.  That’s the reality.

The latter especially, has been a reliable contrary indicator.  Basically, the Small Specs have never been right at important market turns.  For instance, they were heavily net short in the late 1990’s but by the time the market topped in 2000, they had covered and become net long.  They have reliably been a contrary indicator all along the current bull market as well, going net short at each correction bottom, post 2009.

Stock Market Something Happened This Morning / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

Good Morning!

Prior to 6:00 am, the SPX futures were up to 1960.00, a near-50% retracement of yesterday’s decline. Then something happened. “S&P 500 e-mini futures have been halted twice (0551ET and 0612ET) in what one market observer exclaimed "looks like manipulation to me." So what exactly happened at 6:12am?”

Stock Market Daily Charts Show A Strong Reversal Lower.... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jack_Steiman

Last night there was some actions taken by the heads in Japan. Their stock market rocked higher, which naturally caused Europe's futures to rock higher, and finally gave our futures a massive life higher. The intervention has to limit, it seems. One leader after another from all over the world are coming out with drastic actions to ensure good times for their economies. Every time the market tries to fall for a week, or so, we get the Government's kicking in to save mode. They won't allow those bears any love. No wonder markets usually go higher. It's just not an even playing field, but we have known that for more years than we can count, unfortunately. Regardless of how much the intervention may be inappropriate for the long term, action will be taken. They'll deal with the consequences later. Let someone else deal with it.

Stock Market Paving the Way For the FOMC / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2015

By: Jesse

The Fed would very much like to see calm and stable markets as it considers its first interest rate increase off the zero bound on September 16-17 next week.

Let's see if they can get what they want, one way or another.

There was intraday commentary here that was prompted by the Consumer Metrics statement about the US that Among Major Economies, Only the Chinese Numbers Are More Suspect.

Four Stock Market Black Monday Takeaways Wall Street Hopes ETF Investors Never Understand / Stock-Markets / Exchange Traded Funds

By: ...

MoneyMorning.com Keith Fitz-Gerald writes: Exchange-traded funds – ETFs for short – are billed as among the most investor-friendly products ever created, thanks to low fees, intra-day pricing, and unprecedented flexibility versus the mutual funds they’ve ostensibly “replaced.”

In reality, ETFs are yet another Wall Street creation designed to separate you from your money.

Proponents will undoubtedly cry foul as will many Wall Street professionals when they read this. That’s understandable – they’ve got a lot to lose. According to Morningstar, there are more than 1,400 ETFs trading in U.S. markets, holding an estimated $3 trillion in assets. In 2005 that figure stood at $300 billion. In 1990 it stood at nothing.
