Google Super Stock Takes Market To New Highs / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Up, up and away.

Right behind mighty PCLN, GOOG is closing in on the $1,000 per share club after earning $2.97Bn or $10.74 per $970 share. What? Oh sure, yes, $10.74 is just 1/90th of $970 BUT, keep in mind there are 4 (four) big quarter and 4 x $10.74 is $42.96 and GOOG was expected to earn $43.50 this year anyway and though they were SUPPOSED to make $10.34 so, of course a .40 beat means the stock should pop $10%, right?

Structured Finance: Sovereign Debt, Banks, and Gold / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Janet_Tavakoli

The U.S never really minded if a Latin American oil minister took a kickback here or a bribe there to grease the wheels for a foreign oil company or an importer of hard liquor. Latin American taxpayers wouldn’t notice. The money was really just an upfront golden parachute. No U.S. executive ever went to jail just because he voted himself a huge separation bonus as a corporate raider took over a company. Shareholders didn’t complain. The only difference between an executive and a Latin American honcho was the executive got his money after he lost power. But the U.S. minded a lot after Alan Garcia won Peru’s presidential election in 1985. Garcia announced to the world that Peru couldn’t pay back its debt. Garcia was going to mess with U.S. banks, and that was definitely not okay.

U.S. Debt Deal Reached, Republicans Got Nothing, Now 90 Days Until Next Crisis / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

What idiocy!

As I told you yesterday, the damage is done. Extending the crisis past Christmas doesn't make it go away and the Dollar fell 1% today on the "great' news that we "fixed" the debt ceiling. So Congresses "fix" cost you 1% of EVERYTHING you EVER earning in your ENTIRE life. It's all worth 1% less now – happy?

Stock Market Rally Perfect Opportunity for Investors to Liquidate Some Positions? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

George Leong writes: What the heck is with this stock market? The ability of the stock market to hold and avert a major correction over the past two weeks and then follow this with an upward move on the charts is a surprise—at least in my view it is, as it clearly shows the bullish bias controlling this stock market.

Stock Market Investors Must Be Cautious At These Prices, Major Top Lurking… / Stock-Markets / Stocks Bear Market

By: Chris_Vermeulen

Last week on October 8th the financial market experienced a broad based sell off. Every sector was down with utilities being the only exception.

The individual leadership stocks, which are typically small to mid-cap companies (IWM – Russell 2K) that have a strong history and outlook of earnings growth, were hit hard as well.

Whenever the broad market experiences a price correction, one of the most important factors I analyze is how well leading stocks hold up and show relative strength to the broad market.

Four-Day Stock Market Rally Ends; Still Whistling in the Dark? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: PhilStockWorld

Courtesy of Doug Short: The mainstream financial press attributes today?s market decline to the lack of a debt deal. And indeed the S&P 500 fell 0.71%. But with two days to go before the debt ceiling, the incompetence in Washington isn?t triggering that much reaction. Consider: The average intraday range in 2013 (change from low to high) is 0.90%. Today?s 0.71% loss occurred within a 0.93% range. Since the October 1st government shutdown, we?ve had three days with greater declines than today. Moreover, the S&P 500 is only 1.59% off its all-time high on September 18th and is up 0.98% since the shutdown began.

Stock Market Perfect Bull Trap / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Anthony_Cherniawski

SPX is in a perfect bull-trap formation. The rally may be over, but the hope for a settlement is high. This has many traders and investors still comfortable being long.

But the splinter is getting wider and the fragmentation of views combined with the refusal to negotiate may be a toxic mix.

Stock Market Appears Ready for New High - What Impact on Gold? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: P_Radomski_CFA

On Monday, after weekend talks failed to reach a solution that would reopen the federal government and raise the federal borrowing limit by October 17, the S&P 500 Index dropped to its intraday low below 1,700. However, the index reversed course early in the afternoon on a report that President Barack Obama planned to meet with Congressional leaders from both parties at the White House later in the afternoon.

According to Reuters, yesterday Senate leaders made progress on a U.S. debt deal. Additionally, today they may reach an agreement to bring a halt to the fiscal standoff. The emerging deal would avoid a potential default, end the 15-day-old government shutdown and change the immediate deadlines in favor of three new ones over the next four months.

Stock Market - There Goes That Hope Thing Again........ / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Jack_Steiman

The last two trading days, last Thursday and Friday, saw not only hope in Washington but many thought a resolution was going to be at hand by today. Both sides were getting together and talking nicely with each other. A nice change of pace and the very fact of them playing nice played over in to the emotions of the stock market. Folks were feeling good about things and up went the market. Two strong days. Over the weekend, however, bad timings came in once again. Both sides now saying things aren't going along swimmingly any more. As a result, we saw our futures nose diving last night with the Dow down almost 140 points at its lows. Any and all news from Washington was literally running the market up and down, making things very difficult for market players. Price was moving with every word. Tough way to try and play this very difficult game.

Marc Faber Warns There Is No Safe Haven Left! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2013

By: Bloomberg

Marc Faber, publisher of the Gloom, Boom & Doom Report, told Tom Keene and Sara Eisen on "Bloomberg Surveillance" today that "there is no safe haven...The best you can hope for is that you have a diversified portfolio of different assets and that they don't all collapse at the same time."

On the debt ceiling debate in Washington, Faber said, " t's basically a dysfunctional government that we have that is far too large that is essentially wasting money left, right and center. The Republicans are wasting money on the military complex and the Democrats are basically buying votes with transfer payments, with entitlement programs, it goes on. It is a huge waste. The problem is that I don't see a solution."

By: PhilStockWorld

Does this seem familiar to you?

This is how we began last Monday's post as the House failed to pass a debt deal and the markets begain to panic after having popped 100 points on Friday in anticipation of a revolution. Those who forget the past yadda, yadda, yadda - I suppose.

QE Tapering - What Was This Fed's Activity That Was Not Tapered? / Stock-Markets / Quantitative Easing

By: Matt_Machaj

We all heard about various "bailouts" or the financial wizardry that the American government used after the 2008 crisis. In a two pronged play the government spent public money while at the same time it introduced the "quantitative easing" program, which resulted in huge money printing and increases to the "narrowly defined money supply." As mentioned in the last reports, even though it was inflationary it was not very, very inflationary-- at least not yet.

Has the Stock Market Gone Mad? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Profit_Confidential

Michael Lombardi writes: The stock market…a place where rationality has been thrown out the door in favor of trading for immediate profits…profits based on what the government and Federal Reserve are planning to do next. It’s no longer a place for average investors to make money, as the fundamentals that drive key stock indices higher don’t really matter anymore. The notion has become “If it’s good news, buy! And if it’s bad news, then buy even more!”

Stock Market Trifurcation Continues / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2013

By: Toby_Connor

Another wild week as the trifurcation of the major indices continues. The market gapped down from SPX 1691 on Monday, continued lower until Wednesday hitting 1646, then reversed like a rocket into Friday’s 1703 close. In the meantime, the government shut down moved into its second week and the debt limit looms large this Thursday.
For the week the SPX/DOW were +0.95%, the NDX/NAZ were -0.35%, and the DJ World gained 0.8%. On the economic front reports were sparse, only four, and negatives outnumbered positives 3 to 1. Consumer credit increased, but consumer sentiment and the WLEI declined, while weekly jobless claims rose. Next week we may/or may not get reports on Housing, the NY/Philly FED, Industrial production and the FED’s Beige book.

Repo Market Implosion Financial Collapse Nightmare Scenario / Stock-Markets / Credit Crisis 2013

By: Mike_Whitney

October 11, 2013 "Information Clearing House - President Barack Obama is determined to prevail in his battle with GOP congressional leaders on the debt ceiling issue, but not for the reasons stated in the media. Obama is less concerned with the prospect of higher interest rates and frustrated bondholders than he is with the big Wall Street banks who would be thrust back into crisis if there is no resolution before October 17. Absent a debt ceiling deal, the repurchase market–known as repo–would undergo another deep-freeze as it did in 2008 when Lehman Brothers defaulted triggering a run on the Reserve Primary Fund which had been exposed to Lehman’s short-term debt. The frenzied selloff sparked a widespread panic across global financial markets pushing the system to the brink of collapse and forcing the Federal Reserve to backstop regulated and unregulated financial institutions with more than $11 trillion in loans and other obligations. The same tragedy will play out again, if congress fails lift the ceiling and reinforce the present value of US debt.
