Forget Supply And Demand, Trade The Central Banks

Does supply and demand even matter any longer? Just think about it for a minute, it is really the central bank's policy that really moves the market. Just look at Alcoa (NYSE:AA) today, the company missed its earnings estimate and the stock is still inflating higher after the Chinese government basically said that they will push investors to buy stocks. This stuff can't be made up. This action by the Chinese government comes as the Shanghai Index was plummeting throughout most of 2011.…

All Of The Players Are In Place For An Inflation Extravaganza

Yesterday, all of the major stock indexes around the world surged higher after the central banks announced the coordinated intervention for the banks holding European debt. This action by the central banks is a repeat of the action taken back in September 2008. We all know what happened shortly after that intervention in 2008 as the stock markets cratered into March 2009. This time around the central bankers will probably be a bit smarter and the current scenario will not be as dire so…

Germany is considered the most important country in the European Union. This country now has to decide if it is willing to go all in and allow the European central bank to have complete control over the banking crisis that is taking place.

This puts Germany in a very compromising position since it has been so cozy with France over the past two years. If the German…

The Housewives of the European Union

The plot thickens again in the soap opera of the European Union. One day there is a $1.4 trillion bailout fund in place and the next day that deal is falling apart at the seams. One day Greece is on board with austerity measures and the next day they might be back to using the Greek Drachma. This Greek drama continues to get better by the minute.

Next there is Italy and Spain. Italian 10 year bond yields are now surging higher by more than 6.0 percent and this is…

The Only Sector That Needs To Be Followed

If we have learned one thing since the 2007 top it is that the financial stocks are the most important sector that a trader or investor can follow. When the financial stocks decline it is prudent to expect the major stock indexes to follow right behind them. In 2008, the financial crisis was all about the large banks and in 2011 it is still all about the large banks. This time the banking crisis has emerged from across the pond, the European Union. This problem will not just disappear… Continue
