Financials ETF Still Not Able To Exceed Bearish Gartley Pattern (XLF, SKF, UYG, FAS, FAZ)

Thomas Carreno:  The market as represented by the major indices has not been able to make new significant upward ground in recent days.  Essentially the indices have been flat the last 5 days.  This flat sideways market action is occurring at the same level as the ‘twin peaks’ of July 2011.  It could be that the

Financial Sector ETF Bearish Gartley Butterfly Pattern Is Working (XLF, FAS, SKF, FAZ, UYG)

Thomas Carreno:  The Bearish Gartley Butterfly pattern that I posted previously on the Financial Sector ETF (NYSEArca:XLF) is looking like it is starting to work and we may be seeing the ‘fruits’ of that bearish pattern right now.  The early market action now is in rejection mode and we could see downside

Thomas Carreno: The Financials ETF (NYSEArca:XLF) is currently showing a possible gartley butterfly sell pattern.  If the pattern is valid then we should begin to see very soon a sell off in the XLF Financials ETF.  The pattern and its bearish implications will not work if we start to see the XLF trade higher

Big Banks Are Still Risky Investments (XLF, FAS, FAZ, UYG, SKF, MS, BAC, C, GS, JPM, WFC)

Ian Wyatt: Big bank stocks had a good showing last week, with share prices rising across the board. The six biggest U.S. banks by market capitalization gained an average of 8% during the holiday-shortened week in which each released its 2011 fourth-quarter earnings. Since the financial sector is the

David Zeiler: As the grim bank earnings roll in over the next couple of weeks, beginning with JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) tomorrow (Friday) morning, don't fall into the trap of thinking the financial sector's woes in the last quarter reflect a sinking U.S. economy.

Keith Fitz-Gerald: In 2008, reckless credit default swaps nearly obliterated the global economy. Now comes the next crisis - rehypothecated assets. It's a complicated, fancy term in the global banking complex. Yet it's one you need to know.

Oversight To The $600 Trillion Derivatives Market; Did Financial “Regulators” Just Let Us Down Again?

David Zeiler: The Dodd-Frank Act became law 18 months ago, and it may be hard to believe, but we still aren't any better off now than we were then.  Indeed, the regulators that are supposed to be protecting us from a repeat of the 2008 financial crisis can't - or refuse - to get the job done.

Shah Gilani: Let's face it. Banking is a protected industry. It's a government-coddled industry. The problem with that is, banks (NYSEARCA:XLF) really aren't subject to free market forces that would naturally eliminate insolvent and inefficient institutions. The result is more bad banking.

Big Banks: A Look At The Bullish & Bearish Patterns In The Financial Sector (XLF, FAS, FAZ, UYG, SKF)

David Gillie: Financials (the big banks) are the all important sector of market internals. All through 2010 and 2011 the financials have underperformed the overall market.
