Is Another Global Financial Crisis Starting Now?

Is Another Global Financial Crisis Starting Now?

Is talk of another GFC a reality, or just ridiculous speculation with no foundation whatsoever? Recently I wrote a very well received piece on the recent Greek Debt Crisis where I looked at the cold hard facts when the media went all crazy about a potential oncoming European Crisis, “Will A Greek Exit Trigger Another European Crisis?” It seems like we need to revisit this crisis topic all...

How To Profit From The Next Black Swan

How To Profit From The Next Black Swan

The Nicholas Cage film Next is about a guy who can see two minutes into the future. He works as a Las Vegas magician and makes extra money quietly at the blackjack table.   As traders and investors, we would love to be able to see around the corner of time, especially during volatile periods. Since we can’t, when money is at risk, we tend to become fortune tellers and use our intuition to...

Shares of United Parcel Service shook off a downgrade from Zacks and mid-day market sell off to finish higher by more than 2%, printing a bullish hammer candlestick after nearly hitting lows not seen since last October.

Has The Corn Market Found A Floor?

Has The Corn Market Found A Floor?

The latest weekly crop condition ratings update for Corn showed that 69 percent of the crop came in good to excellent condition unchanged on the week and down from 73% last year. The ten year average for this time of year comes in at 58 percent. Recent crop tours, a 20 to30 percent drop in Argentinean planted acreage, and lower than expected EU yield estimates have been all factors that have...

Have Central Banks Lost Control?

Have Central Banks Lost Control?

To say the markets have been roiled in the past few days is an understatement.  The financial press has focused on US and Chinese equities, and to a lesser extent, on crude oil.  Clearly, the US stock market is a huge factor in global wealth.  From the end of July US equities probably lost a total of $2.5 trillion of market cap, so with GDP at around $17.7 trillion that represents around 14%...

US Stocks Rolled Off Edge Of Cliff: Now What?

US Stocks Rolled Off Edge Of Cliff: Now What?

“Ask Kase” and your question may be chosen as the subject of a future column (askkase@kaseco.com). Clearly markets have been declining as the drop in demand in China has finally hit hard. It’s easy to sustain robust growth from a low base, but as an economy grows, that becomes more difficult, as China’s machinations show. The spillover to the Dow Jones Index has been evident since mid-May as...

They Were Warned About The Crash 43 Times

They Were Warned About The Crash 43 Times

OK, the title is a bit of an attention grabber but it is worth your time as an investor and trader to read this article. Volume-at-price analysis is incredibly robust and consistent.  Compared to other technical methods or tools, there is no comparison. As the S&P 500 made its first new highs of 2015, the critical support zone at 2034 – 55 had already been established and defined as key...

Protect Your Capital From Wild Stock Swings

Protect Your Capital From Wild Stock Swings

After a strong bounce in the overnight trading, the ES found resistance on Tuesday around Monday's high area. But Tuesday’s rally failed later in the day when a new sell-off began after lunch. At the end the ES closed at 1873.50, or 2.25 points above the previous close. That close just about at the same level as Monday might give you the impression the market is settling down a little. The...

China Panic Rollercoaster: Profit With The VIX

China Panic Rollercoaster: Profit With The VIX

With many key money managers away on vacation, world stock markets continued to plunge as the PBOC disappointed markets by not delivering a much anticipated rate cut over the weekend.  The CBOE volatility index, also known as the VIX, is an important measure of volatility with the U.S. equity markets and yesterday, it had a historic spike higher above the 50 level.    Monday morning saw...

More Carnage: Investors Hurt, But Not Traders

More Carnage: Investors Hurt, But Not Traders

Yesterday we asked the rhetorical question: after the bloodbath, what happens next? Today we got the answer:  More! Much more! But not everyone is suffering equally. Some guys are laughing all the way to the bank. First the details. Last week the S&P500 index mini-futures (ES) dropped about 135 points in four trading days. Monday it dropped another 135 points in about four hours. This...
