Marc Fabers Predicts "Colossal Mess" In 5-10 Years - Mike Swanson (10/23/12)

On CNBC yesterday investment thinker Marc Faber stated that he thinks that there will a big mess in the markets and global economy in 5-10 years due to the growing government debt crisis. "I think the regimes will try to keep the system alive as it is for as long as possible, which means there's no fiscal cliff, there's a fiscal grand canyon," he said.

"I think the deficit here (in the United States) - irrespective of who is in the White House - will stay above a trillion dollars per annum for at least as far as the eye can see," Faber said.

Nasdaq Dumps on Downgrades - Mike Swanson (10/10/12)

Yesterday the Nasdaq fell over 45 points as several Wall Street analysts downgraded Intel and some other tech companise on earnings worries. Next week Intel will report earnings. Usually if the market rallies up into earnings it sells off a bit afterwords once earnings announcements come out while if it falls into earnings it rallies once they come out. What happens is that traders pretty much position themselves ahead of earnings so the news gets all baked in by the time it gets on to the TV screen.

Sentiment Survey Shows Investors Not Overly Bullish - Mike Swanson (10/04/12)

According to Investors Intelligence in their last report the number of people who they polled and told them that they were bullish near the stock market peak for September was 54.1% while the number of people bearish was at 24.50%. 54% is a fairly high reading for the number of bulls and major peaks have come in the stock market during the past three years at readings of 55% and above.

Corrections Often End In Panic Selling - Mike Swanson (09/26/12)

Yesterday the DOW fell over 100 points and the S&P 500 fell 15 points. What is even more noteworthy though is that on the NYSE 90% of the orders were sell orders. This was panic selling.

The truth is a lot of people doubt that this rally is real and there are some people that get nervous at any sign of weakness and sell out. I'm sure there are many hedge fund managers that have felt like they have been forced to buy just because the market was going up and they can't miss out and not because they believe in it, so are quick to sell at any sign of weakness.

A Short-Term Pause - Mike Swanson (09/19/12)

I've mostly been writing about the long-term trends of the market. Back at the end of July I started to talk to you about how cheap the valuations are in global markets outside of the United States and how bull markets seemed to be lining up to start there and in gold. And then I began to buy and show you exactly what I was buying, how much, and when. And things have gone up. New bulls have started just about everywhere.

I haven't said a whole lot about the short-term moves though. It looks to me right now we are seeing a little pause. Take a look at this chart of gold.

What You Can Know and Not Know About This Market - Mike Swanson (08/13/12)

I just did this video market update for you. What I was thinking about before I did the video is a simple question - right now what can we know about the market and what can't we know? Well we can't know exactly how the Euro crisis is going to play out, we can't know whether Greece will default or not, we can't know whether Romney will win the election or whether Obama will be win - simply put there is so much that we can't know that it can easily make you to nervous or uncertain to do anything.

You simply can't predict the future.

As the outlook for the European financial situation remains ambiguous, most Wall Street analysts believe that the US dollar will continue to rise in value against the euro in 2012. Moreover, the recent slowing down of manufacturing activity in China and the growing likelihood of a recession in Europe have also made many investors flock to safe haven currencies, with the US dollar generally seen as the most attractive currency.
