MarketWatch Article Predicts 2013 Stock Market Crash, Gold Price Reports

(PRWEB) June 06, 2013

Paul B. Farrell with MarketWatch recently wrote an article in which he describes, in detail, how a stock market crash before the end of 2013 is not only possible, but very likely. Farrell quotes sources such as billionaire Warren Buffett, economists Peter Schiff and Gary Schilling, CEO of Doubleline Capital Jeffrey Gundlach and others, as well as historical facts, to develop his theory that U.S. stock markets are long overdue for an implosion.

Farrell contends that the stubbornness of Fed chairman Ben Bernanke, along with the non-stop chatter about housing and job market recoveries, have caused a consumer confidence bubble. Stewart Lawson, vice president of marketing for, says he agrees wholeheartedly with Farrells analysis.

Id say that the likelihood of a stock crash this year is 87 percent at a minimum, Lawson said from his office in Dallas, TX. Government agencies, the media and investment banks as well as their brokers have been shoving this recovery nonsense down our throats for the last couple of years, but I talk to people every day who tell me that this recovery hasnt trickled down to them at all. Prices for food and gasoline are higher, unemployment is up, cities are going bankrupt and we are supposed to believe that the stock market is safe? So much stock market trading is done by machines and a few weeks ago a single tweet from a hacked AP Twitter account caused the market to nose-dive. Id say that an 87 percent chance of stocks crashing this year is an understatement, but the facts and quotes he uses in the article are very frank and refreshing, Lawson added.

Lawson recommends hard assets such as gold and silver, and if someone is insistent on being involved with the stock market, they should consider ETFs that are based on commodities. Cash accounts and mutual funds have done well in the past, but anyone who looks objectively at our economy can tell something doesnt feel right.

Robust Demand from Emerging Markets Drives the Global Motorcycles, Scooters and Mopeds Market, According to New Report by Global Industry Analysts, Inc.

San Jose, California (PRWEB) November 09, 2012

Follow us on LinkedIn Two-wheelers fulfill a strong need for convenience, speed, and personal mobility. The last two decades have comprehensively transformed the powered two-wheeler industry worldwide, with regional markets such as Asia-Pacific having played a significant role in its evolution. No other industry illustrates the regional differentiation better than the powered two-wheeler industry. For instance, while motorcycling is perceived as a mode of recreation and pastime activity in developed markets such as the US and Europe, two-wheeler driving symbolizes an important means of urban transportation in the developing markets such as Asia-Pacific. Growing environmental concerns and rising fuel prices are gradually bringing two-wheelers into the spotlight. While the ability of two-wheelers to provide better fuel efficiency than cars is helping them gain significant adoption among consumers, being environmental friendly is earning them Government support and backing across the globe. Stringent Government regulations for curbing environmental pollution are especially helping drive demand for 4-stroke motorcycles across the world. Many international companies such as Yamaha are striving to introduce new environment-friendly motorcycles to comply with emission standards of various markets.

The two wheeler industry which was steadily recovering from the 2007-2009 recession, however once gain received a setback during the year 2012 with the European debt crisis pushing the industry into a new set of challenges. Macro themes affecting Europe include the prolonging of the sovereign debt crisis as a result of the half-measures implemented to date in attempts to stave off the crisis, a dysfunctional financial system that is fuelling a slow-motion economic collapse, fears over reduced consumer spending, and slower economic growth as a result of austerity measures. The two-wheeler industry during 2012 vacillated widely between optimism and fear, marring sentiments in an otherwise recovering market. Credit restrictions as a result of austerity measures implemented by the debt ridden Governments, consumer indecisiveness, weakening consumer confidence as a result of fears over escalation in the severity of the debt crisis, resulted in slowing two-wheeler sales during the year. Weakness in motorcycle, scooter and moped sales until now has been all the more evident in France, Spain, Greece and Portugal this year.

Despite the debt crisis currently engulfing European two-wheeler market, manufacturers continue to remain optimistic about their future prospects, given that urban mobility and passion for hassle free ride continue to be distinctive factors driving consumer two-wheeler purchases. While few two-wheeler models have no doubt been affected due to the Euro zone crisis, sales of light powered two wheelers and other fuel efficient models that are typically designed for urban driving, continue to attract demand, thereby indicating consumer lean towards value for money purchases. Also, given the prolonged financial hardships that region has been witnessing, first in the form of global economic recession and now the euro zone crisis, it is of little surprise that many of the European car drivers are beginning to show interest on much economical and easy to maintain two-wheelers, thereby driving optimism in the market. Also, passion for motorcycling among Europeans will also re-emerge soon to drive high-end vehicle sales, especially those with engine capacities of over 250CC.

As stated by the new market research report on Motorcycles, Scooters and Mopeds, Asia-Pacific represents the most prominent regional market with unit sales in the region waxing at a CAGR of about 9.9% over the analysis period. The region exhibits a strong market for motorcycles, scooters and mopeds, characterized by huge population, burgeoning economies, growing employment opportunities, increasing consumer affluence, and mass exodus of rural inhabitants to urban cities, particularly in emerging countries of China and India.

Why The Market Ignored GOOG’s Plunge (If Only Briefly)

Via Michael Faso of FBN Securities,

GOOG’s ill timed oops inside the early afternoon left the S&P 500 around 12 handles from what been shaping up earlier because a 4th straight “checkmark” session.  The technologies behemoth offered another illustration of the non-financial firm’s lost earnings expectations with a nation mile these which firms inside aggregate have fallen brief of bottom line plus revenue estimates for the quarter whenever factoring out the figures from big banks.  With big broker-dealer announcements largely inside the rearview mirror, the prospects for the rest of the reporting season appear dim.

Despite the shocking nature of the letdown, the TICK not registered a print worse than –925 inside the immediate wake of the surprise headline, a very unusual phenomenon provided the aggressiveness of the downward move

Here is a chart showing an modified TRIN versus the S&P futures – no broad-based marketing stress because the index fell plus recovered…


This suggests big organizations stayed with their VWAP buy programs (because inside the chart below) from confusion or necessity.

I may imagine just 2 situations for these adherence to buying inside the face of well-defined very damaging information about, what was at the time, the 3rd largest stock inside America. 

First, inside anticipation of the morning’s expiry, the baskets might have reflected a want to incorporate to share positions to the balance sheet and/or to safeguard the significant 1450 strike cost for the S&P 500.  Furthermore, the obtaining may have arisen just within the should place cash to function specifically inside light of the standard October fiscal year end window dressing for several mutual funds.  Regardless of the cause, both of these impetuses are transient because the momentum might tail off because early because now with all the arrival of the “double witch.”  This puts equities inside a surprisingly tenuous state particularly considering the big heighten inside open interest for the futures following Wednesday’s 3rd straight session of strong gains hinting which managers continue to be struggling to expand their portfolio beta.

The financial information continues to enhance aggressively with all the Philly Fed conveniently outdistancing consensus despite its 2 most crucial components, Employment plus New Orders, ticking down sequentially.  Some bulls were encouraged by the 1% heighten inside Leading Indicators vs the August numbers; nevertheless, the information series historically has available nothing of predictive value, conserve which of the contrarian signal.  For illustration, the past example of these a leap happened arrived 3 days before the April, 2010 top which spawned a 17% selloff for the blue chip index.  Although the study did heighten with synonymous magnitude inside April, 2009, it produced many encouraging readings close to the apex of both the Dot Com bubble plus financial crisis.

Regardless of how I angle these numbers, I am forced to concede which the healing has appeared to accelerate inside September.  This optimism conflicts with what businesses are suggesting through their earnings releases, preannouncements, plus meeting calls.  I had argued by the fall of 2011 which inside the case of these a divergence, I constantly will defer to what firms have projected because opposed to the usually stale figures the government has released.  So, I subsequently stayed steadfastly bullish at the time. This dynamic currently has flipped these which I never anticipate a trough inside earnings development, however, very a peak inside financial strength.  Overseas weakness, fiscal uncertainty, along with a central bank which has fired its last bullet by signaling the release of the QE3 just provides me comfort for this thesis.

Other warning signs stay intact because the tiny caps continue to lag because the Russell 2000 underperformed the S&P 500 again past inspite of the thick weighting of GOOG plus AAPL for the latter.  The average intraday range for the blue chip index continues to calculate to around 12 handles, a dangerously skittish level which consistently has led to extensive pullbacks*** because numerous managers step apart throughout selloffs for worry of taking thick losses after entering or adding to a position.  Finally, because you inch closer to the Election inside the face of the tight race, the probability of a exogenous damaging shock about November 6 plus inside the intermediate aftermath rises daily.  Moreover, with Congress scheduled to go about holiday about December 14, the window accessible to resolve the fiscal cliff can shut promptly inside the wake of the bitter campaign season.
