Silver Up, Stocks S&P Down / Stock-Markets / Gold and Silver 2014

By: DeviantInvestor

Silver has had three bad years while the S&P has had five good years. It is time for both markets to reverse.

Examine the following graph of Silver versus the Silver to S&P ratio. It tells me the ratio has returned to levels seen in 2008 and that the ratio follows the price of silver. This is interesting but not that helpful.

Emerging Markets’ investing v Developed Markets / Stock-Markets / Emerging Markets

By: Jonathan_Davis

When we talk of Emerging Markets (EMs) we mean the likes of Brazil, Russia, India, China etc (AKA The BRICs).

The Developed Markets (DMs) are the Anglo Saxon countries and Japan, Germany, France etc.

Over the last 6-9 months there has been relentless negative publicity, in the media, about BRICs.  Article after article in the press, commentary after commentary on radio, piece after piece on TV saying the same thing:  “Steer clear of EMs.  They will lose you vast amounts of money.  Get out and never come back.”

Stock Market Rally Won't Quit...Yet... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

And why should it? Just because sentiment is poor, and the weekly and monthly charts look awful, doesn't mean we should fall, now does it? I mean, don't we need a real reason to fall? Poor charts just isn't enough it seems. Ms. Yellen, and those low rates into perpetuity, just won't allow a real correction. Not yet, anyway. Sure, we have a bear market in froth, but we don't have even a real correction in the overall market. Market continues to find rotation as the name of the game. As long as that exists we won't fall very hard. Lower P/E stocks with solid earnings are holding this market up. Folks don't want to leave the market, they just want to place their money in the land of safety.

A Crisis vs. the REAL Crisis: Keep Your Eye on the Debt Ball / Stock-Markets / Global Debt Crisis 2014

By: Casey_Research

By Laurynas Vegys, Research Analyst

Today I want to talk about crises. Two of the most notable ones that have been in the public eye over the course of the past 6-8 months are obviously the conflicts in Ukraine and Syria. The two are very different, yet both seemed to cause rallies in the gold market.

I say “seemed” because, while there were days when the headlines from either country sure looked to kick gold up a notch, there were also relevant and alarming reports from Argentina and emerging markets like China during many of the same time periods. Nevertheless, looking at the impressive gains during these periods, one has to wonder if it actually takes a calamity for gold to soar.

Is This What a Credit Bubble Looks Like? / Stock-Markets / Liquidity Bubble

By: F_F_Wiley

There’s been some buzz recently about a pick-up in business lending. The six largest banks increased business loans at an average annual rate of 8.5% in the first quarter, according to a Wall Street Journal report last week. Other first quarter data reported by the Fed shows commercial and industrial loans jumping 12% from last year. Charles Schwab’s chief strategist went so far as to call a chart depicting the Fed’s broader lending data “the most important chart in the world.”

How Last Week’s Stock Market Mini Rally Is Reshaping My Investment Strategy / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: DailyGainsLetter

George Leong writes: The stock market staged a minor rally last week, but don’t get too excited yet; the buying support was largely triggered by a technically oversold market, rather than solid fundamentals or a fresh catalyst.

What I can say is that investors need to be careful with the high-beta stocks that are extremely volatile at this time and vulnerable to downside selling.

Stock Market Minor Correction Imminent / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Andre_Gratian

Current Position of the Market

SPX: Very Long-term trend - The very-long-term cycles are in their down phases, and if they make their lows when expected (after this bull market is over), there will be another steep decline into late 2014. However, the Fed policy of keeping interest rates low has severely curtailed the full downward pressure potential of the 40-yr and 120-yr cycles.

Intermediate trend - Failed to overcome resistance at the high. May have started an intermediate decline.

Nikkei Stock Market - Sell Japan / Stock-Markets / Japanese Stock Market

Stock Market SPX Topping Valuations / Stock-Markets / Stock Market Valuations

By: Zeal_LLC

The lofty stock markets are starting to wobble, with selloffs’ frequency and sharpness increasing.  The dominant reason the Fed’s stock levitation is running out of steam is severe overvaluation.  Stocks are just far too expensive today compared to historic precedent, a dangerous state seen when bull markets are topping.  Rampant overvaluation is a glaring warning sign to investors that selling is just beginning.

Best Stock Market Weekly Gain Since July 2013 / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The pre-market announcement of new jobless claims continues to beat expectations with its four-week moving average now the lowest since early October of 2007, two months before the last recession. Despite the good claims number, the S&P 500 opened fractionally lower with some options expiration volume and sold off to its modest -0.30% intraday low 25 minutes later. The index slowly recovered to its 0.39% intraday high early in the final hour of trading. It closed with a trimmed gain of 0.14%, the fourth day of gains and a hefty 2.71% advance for the holiday-shortened week — the best weekly since the week after Independence Day in 2013.

Bank Depositor Bail-Ins and Real Assets vs Liability-Based Assets / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis Bailouts

By: Dan_Amerman

Bail-ins are a new way of "rescuing" banks and other financial organizations that have been sweeping around the world, even as they rewrite the rules for investors and depositors.

Bail-ins have already occurred in Cyprus with their banking system, as well as with the retirement system in Poland. The European Union is on board in rapidly implementing bail-in standards, and they are under intensive scrutiny by regulators in the United States, with ratings on some major US bank securities already being changed in anticipation of the potential for bail-ins. Canada has announced its intentions in this area as well, and Japan is moving rapidly.

One of Harry Dent’s Three Keys to Market Prediction is Cycles / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Survive-Prosper

Harry Dent writes: I learned three crucial principles early on in my forecasting career.

The first is that the economy is a dynamic play between opposite principles.

The second is that natural, cyclical forces have an unstoppable effect on markets and economies, regardless of what we do.

Investors Ignore Frightful Russia, Europe Geopolitics / Stock-Markets / GeoPolitics

By: John_Browne

When the former Soviet Union collapsed almost 25 years ago, most global strategic forecasters assumed that the U.S. would adapt pragmatically to her new status of sole world superpower. Instead she has pursued a variety of misguided nation-building adventures and has largely shrunk from her primary responsibility of neutralizing the ambitions of petty dictators around the world. From this perspective, America's multi-generational expenditures on military personnel and equipment has become more of a stealth economic stimulus program rather than an insurance policy for global stability.

High-Frequency Insider Trading / Stock-Markets / HFT

By: BATR

No one has ever claimed that the financial markets are a level playing field. Equities, bonds, currencies, options and futures are not arenas that operate by equivalent standards for all parties. Great fortunes were built not by chance, but on superior information, known to the few. Professional traders are not risk gamblers, but operate on the premise of special advantage. Through advance and proprietary techniques that reduce exposure hazards and provide exclusive head start triggers, which virtually guarantee profits, the elite firms dominate Wall Street.

Stock Market Flash Crash Alert! / Stock-Markets / Financial Crash

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

I have been attempting to find the reason for the triple bottom at 1814, 1815 and 1816. The best I can figure is that SPX is finding support at the 120-day moving average and Wave [ii] is expanding for another challenge of the trendline. It appears to be a desperate situation. The powers that be managed to re-cross the trendline in February, so there may be an attempt to duplicate that event.

Stock Market Cycles Middle Sections / Stock-Markets / Cycles Analysis

By: Ed_Carlson

An advancing Middle Section from early 2009 (top) pointed to two separate highs last week. The definition of a Middle Section is a period of time in which the Dow's rate of advance slows relative to what comes both before and after it. The two measuring points are points E and C. Point E is always the second-to-last rally in a Middle Section. Point C is the day the Dow drops down from a minor topping formation and begins the decline into the low of the Middle Section at point D. In this case, points C and D are identical.

Fed Rigs Markets, Not the Flash Boys / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

By: Michael_Pento

There’s been a lot of attention being paid to high frequency trading (HFT) as of late. The question has been raised as to whether or not HFT rigs markets. It is true that HFT adds nothing to GDP and is simply a legalized form of high-tech front running. However, the real problem with the stock market—and the economy as a whole—isn’t the fact that HFT skims pennies off transactions from institutional traders; but rather that the Fed has rigged interest rates and asset prices to the extent that investors can no longer distinguish reality from fiction.

Flash Crash, Rigged Markets - What’s the Frequency Zenith? / Stock-Markets / Market Manipulation

WARNING: This week’s Things That Make You Go Hmmm... is going to run a little longer than usual, I’m afraid, so if you have some time to kill, strap yourself in for the ride.

Yes. I have read it.

For the last couple of weeks those have been the five words I have used the most — by a country mile.

The second most-used five-word combination during that time has been “I know, what a tool.”
