That was some rally yesterday and today, huh? And if you listen to the average pundit on CNBC, you’d think it stemmed from a bunch of prescient, wise, old fund managers putting all…

Global market meltdown. That’s really the only way to describe the recent stock market plunge worldwide. The selling began mid-last year in Europe, spread to emerging markets and most notably China a few months ago. Now the selling has caught up to U.S. stocks with a vengeance. Just between last Thursday and Monday, the Dow Jones Industrials lost nearly 1,500…

I can’t tell you the complaints I’ve received over roughly the last 14 months, when I started warning everyone that a stock market correction was coming. Possibly a big one. They said I was nuts. That I was a stopped clock. After all, the major indices such as the Dow Industrials and the Nasdaq were making one new high after…

If that’s the only “Bazooka” China is packing, we’re in even bigger trouble than I thought! I say that because the furious rally Chinese policymakers managed to ignite earlier completely fell apart into…

The S&P 500 has lost critical technical support at the 200-day moving average and the 2,000 level — putting its post-2011 uptrend in jeopardy. Many observers pooh-poohed the importance of the technical “death cross” last week. Turns out to have been meaningful indeed, as it was a milepost by which to observe the stark loss of market momentum. Globally, the…

Nary a pullback goes by without at least a handful of requests to update my pullback table to help put the current pullback in perspective. Whether the current market action is best described as a pullback, correction or even bear market, I am happy to oblige. For those who may new to this graphic, note that the table below includes…

Many readers have commented that one of their favorite of my regular graphics is the table of VIX spikes of 30% or more that I update periodically in this space, along with the subsequent performance in the S&P 500 Index following these spikes. This time around I have elected to add an additional column that identifies the catalysts involved (necessarily…

A global meltdown. That’s the only way to describe the last 24 hours worth of market action. The carnage started in the Middle East, where markets open first on the weekend. Then it…

Larry Edelson’s Wednesday missive, “Europe’s Crisis Over? Hogwash!” is both accurate and prescient. So if you haven’t read it yet, I think you should do so now. Larry is one of the very few who not only forecast the crisis well ahead of time, but also accurately predicted how it would impact the U.S. dollar, commodities, inflation/deflation and U.S. stocks.…
