Janet Yellen's Christmas Gift to Wall Street / Stock-Markets / US Federal Reserve Bank

By: Dr_Ron_Paul

Last week we learned that the key to a strong economy is not increased production, lower unemployment, or a sound monetary unit. Rather, economic prosperity depends on the type of language used by the central bank in its monetary policy statements. All it took was one word in the Federal Reserve Bank's press release -- that the Fed would be "patient" in raising interest rates to normal levels -- and stock markets went wild. The S&P 500 and the Dow Jones Industrial Average had their best gains in years, with the Dow gaining nearly 800 points from Wednesday to Friday and the S&P gaining almost 100 points to close within a few points of its all-time high.

Ride the 2014 IPO Stock Boom Into 2015 / Stock-Markets / IPOs

By: Investment_U

With 271 initial public offerings raking in $84.2 billion dollars to date, there’s no doubt that 2014 has been hot for IPOs.

From this week’s chart we can see that the number of IPOs this year is up 23% from 2013, representing the most since the height of the dot-com bubble in 2000. We can also see that IPO proceeds jumped more than 53% - from $54.9 billion in 2013 to $84.2 billion in 2014.

Stock Market Worst Week in Years... Buy This Dip / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: DailyWealth

Dr. Steve Sjuggerud writes: U.S. stocks had their worst week in over three years last week – falling 3.5%.

You couldn't have missed that – it was all over the financial news.

Is this massive fall in one week the sign of the end? Is this the peak of the great bull market? Is it time to worry?

Stock Investors Look Ahead into 2015 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: Clif_Droke

With 2014 winding down, now would be a convenient time to discuss the prospects for the financial market and economy in 2015.

Year 2014 was in some respects a tumultuous year; from the slowdown in Europe and China to the collapse in oil and ag commodity prices, the deflationary undercurrents of the 60-year cycle was apparent this year. The long-awaited bottom of the 120-year cycle of deflation was finally made in October, and aside from some residual weakness still evident, the cycle bottom was a successful one.

Stocks Bull Market Resumes / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Tony_Caldaro

Another wild week in the markets. The market opened the week at SPX 2002 after last week’s 3.5% selloff. After a gap up opening on Monday carrying the SPX to 2019, it gapped down on Tuesday hitting 1973 right at the close. After that the market gapped up Wednesday, and on Thursday, then came with one point of its all time high on Friday. For the week the SPX/DOW gained 3.2%, the NDX/NAZ gained 2.2%, and the DJ World index was up 2.2%. Economic reports for the week were slightly biased to the downside. On the uptick: industrial production, capacity utilization, housing starts, leading indicators and weekly jobless claims improved. On the downtick: the NY/Philly FED, the NAHB, building permits, the CPI, and the WLEI. Next week, a holiday shortened week, we get Q3 GDP, PCE prices, and more reports on housing. Best to your holiday week!

What Are Technical Indicators Saying About the Stock Market? / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Sy_Harding

It was just a week ago that financial headlines bemoaned the market having suffered its worst week in 2 ½ years. The bears came out of hiding with scary forecasts. Plunging oil prices, previously thought to be a positive for global economies, were suddenly seen as a major negative, along with the collapse of Russia’s economy and currency. Warnings of a potential global meltdown, perhaps even a 1998 style mini-crash, grew in number.

Bullish investor sentiment and confidence plunged. The weekly poll of its members by the American Association of Individual investors (AAII) fell to only 38.7% bullish.

Derivatives and Mass Financial Destruction / Stock-Markets / Derivatives

By: Alasdair_Macleod

Globally systemically important banks (G-SIBs in the language of the Financial Stability Board) are to be bailed-in if they fail, moving the cost from governments to the depositors, bondholders and shareholders. There are exceptions to this rule, principally, small depositors who are protected by government schemes, and also derivatives, so the bail-in is partial and bail-out in these respects still applies.

A Time to Prepare / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: Dr_Jeff_Lewis

The observation of modern finance through the lens of sound money requires an onion peeler. Each time I imagine onions, I think of my soft contact lens patients; the ones who abuse them.  I think of the patients who wear them too long or through periods of mild irritation or redness and practice poor hygiene. 

Soft contact lenses mask normal corneal sensitivity. They act like tiny onion goggles. With soft lenses in place, one can literally chop onions and not feel the normal irritating sensation at all.  The problem is they tend to be the last to know about the trouble.

China, Dollar, Japan, Europe Burning Questions for 2015 / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2015

By: John_Mauldin

Louis Gave is one of my favorite investment and economic thinkers, besides being a good friend and an all-around fun guy. When he and his father Charles and the well-known European journalist Anatole Kaletsky decided to form Gavekal some 15 years ago, Louis moved to Hong Kong, as they felt that Asia and especially China would be a part of the world they would have to understand. Since then Gavekal has expanded its research offices all over the world. The Gavekal team’s various research arms produce an astounding amount of work on an incredibly wide range of topics, but somehow Louis always seems to be on top of all of it.

Longtime readers know that I often republish a piece by someone in their firm (typically Charles or Louis). I have to be somewhat judicious, as their research is actually quite expensive, but they kindly give me permission to share it from time to time.

U.S. Economy is in a Sweet Spot! / Stock-Markets / Financial Markets 2014

By: Puru_Saxena

BIG PICTURE - The world's prominent central banks are pursuing an accommodative monetary policy and this bodes well for the stock market. Remember, when it comes to investing, monetary policy trumps everything else and the risk free rate of return determines the value of every asset. When interest rates are low and credit is cheap and plentiful, asset prices tend to inflate. Conversely, when interest rates are high and credit is tight, asset prices tend to deflate.

Insane Santa Claus Stock Market Rally / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Joseph_Russo

Just a few short days ago, it appeared that bearish forces were destined to deny Wall Street its customary "Santa Claus Rally." Enter the Yellen Fed and the FOMC meeting on Wednesday, and suddenly, like magic, Santa and his proverbial rally appears to have found its way back on course to treat Wall Street with a healthy dose of Christmas Cheer.

How in the name of Jesus are long-term investors (let alone short-term traders) supposed to deal with this type of rollercoaster market from hell?

Show Me The Money (Flow)! Tracking Money-Flow Through Value Shifts In Stock Markets / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: George_R_Harrison

We’ve all heard of the old magicians trick of distracting with one hand while the other is where the real set-up is taking place.

It seems we’re up against the same process at work in the markets we’re experiencing today.

There’s a fundamental and major shift taking place. Everyone feels the ‘vibe’ of it, but, where’s the proof (instead of the speculation) to bear out the truth of it?

It’s not to be found from conventional sources, that much is clear.

Stock Market Volatility Soaring....Whipsaw....Down Bias For Now..... / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Jack_Steiman

Volatility is soaring and traders are suffering. Too difficult to play with massive whipsaw moves intraday just about everywhere, but with the trend still clearly lower for now. When the VIX is in the low teens it's easy on the soul, but when it rockets in to the lower 20-range, things can get very intense. You can barely keep up with the score. You blink and the S&P 500 moves five points. You blink again and it's another five, and so on. The range for the day across the board on all the key-index charts can give you motion sickness. Huge drifting. This is when markets become too difficult to put the finger on the buy or sell button. It becomes luck trades and that's not what you want to be doing. It can work, but Russian roulette is better used somewhere else.

Dow Mini Stock Market Megaphone Top / Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2014

By: Austin_Galt

The Dow made marginal all time highs in early December before turning back down. Many people are now jumping at shadows with every correction that takes place. This is understandable given the Dow’s precarious position but it is my opinion that the ultimate top is still yet to be seen.

Let’s examine the situation using the daily and weekly charts.
