24 days ago by Dr. Duru @ Dr. Duru

The business of stock prognostication is a tough one: a lot of uncertainty abounds, markets swing through surprisingly long bouts of herd-following and counter-trend sentiments, bots and market makers can rampage through the best technical setups, and companies sometimes only disclose the minimally required information. I dare to prognosticate only with risk management as a ... Read more

Markets struggle to build on yesterday's bullish 'hammers'
about 2 hours ago by Declan Fallon @ Fallond Picks

It was a good finish for bulls on Monday but there was a lack of follow through on what should have been a good day for buyers.  However, damage was still relatively light. Technicals for the S&P reverted to a net bearish state as other indices lost ground.The S&P cut into yesterday's spike low but not enough to negate the bullish hammer. I would look for another spike low and would measure risk on a break of 2,580.The Nasdaq closed with a 'black' candlestick, typically a...

A comment on Professor Shiller's "The Housing Boom Is Already Gigantic. How Long Can It Last?"
about 5 hours ago by Bill McBride @ Calculated Risk

Last Friday, Professor Robert Shiller wrote in the NY Times: The Housing Boom Is Already Gigantic. How Long Can It Last?We are, once again, experiencing one of the greatest housing booms in United States history.How long this will last and where it is heading next are impossible to know now.But it is time to take notice: My data shows that this is the United States’ third biggest housing boom in the modern era.First, it is important to note that Professor Shiller is discussing house prices, as opposed to housing activity (usually a "housing boom" would refer to new home sales and housing starts).   This is not one of the "greatest housing booms" in terms of new home sales and housing starts - in fact, housing activity is still somewhat low historically.More Shiller: Even after factoring in Consumer Price...

Goldman Forecast on 2019 Rate Hikes
about 7 hours ago by Bill McBride @ Calculated Risk

A few brief excerpts from a Goldman Sachs research note: Currently, we see the probability of a funds rate hike at 45% for 2019Q1, 75% for Q2, 70% for Q3, and 60% for Q4 … this represents a 3-hike baseline for 2019. (We recently shifted to this view from our previous 4-hike baseline, mainly because of tighter financial conditions.) The corresponding probability-weighted path … implies 2.0 hikes in 2019, a smaller but still clearly hawkish number when compared to market pricing of 0.7 hikes.CR Note: Most analysts expect another rate hike will be announced at the conclusion of the FOMC meeting next week (December 19th). However there is a wide range of views on how much the Fed will hike in 2019.
