Dow Jones Industrial Average Warning: Why Stocks Could Fall 50% From Here

The Downside Bets With Inverse ETFs

humor"Don't be fooled by bear market rallies, which are sharp, short-lived and, in some cases, extremely powerful," says Martin Weiss. In his The Safe Money Report, he looks at inverse ETFs. "Bear market rallies prompt short-sellers to panic, bears to mellow, bulls to come out of hiding, and Washington to declare 'the worst is over.' That’s precisely what’s happening today.  But don’t be fooled! "So our targets for this bear market are unchanged: 5000 on the Dow, 500 on the S&P 500, and 850 on the Nasdaq. Meanwhile, here are some of the best investments for protection and profit as the bear market resumes:......

Health Care ETFs Have Been Taking The Long Way Home

healthcare3It's been rather startling to watch the equity markets make a run at 6 consecutive weeks of gains. Weren't folks all but promising Dow 5000 back at Dow 6500? Didn't the S&P 500's 666 mark seem so ominous... that the index appeared destined for 500? Scores of bears haven't thrown in the towel. And pullback believers, including myself, are almost praying for a bit of profit taking. (Nothing truly wonderful ever seems to come from straight-line upward movement, just as nothing apocalyptic ever seems to come from free falling markets.)  Yet with Noubini predicting the S&P 500 to bottom at 600 as well as predicting the economy to be stuck in recession throughout 2010, market doom-n-gloom doesn't seem quite as "doomy-n-gloomy." Fits and starts... sure. Retesting and rethinking... it seems quite probable. But the idea of breaking the March lows feels less likely than setting higher lows in the 700s for the S&P. Regardless of how it all shakes out, one has to question what happened to the health care sector. In the bear's 18-month reign of terror, health care had arguably held up the best. Take a look at Vanguard Health Care ETF (VHT) versus ETF sector funds like Tech (XLK), Energy (XLE), Consumer (XLY), Utilities (XLU) and Materials (XLB).

SSgA Plans VRDO Muni Bond ETF

munibondWith market volatility still a concern and Treasury yields relatively low, State Street Global Advisors has filed to launch a new municipal bond exchange-traded fund. The SPDR S&P Municipal VRDO ETF will track an index of variable rate demand obligations. Those are debt issues by states, local governments and other agencies which pay interest exempt from federal income taxes. VRDO issuing volume skyrocketed last year after the collapse of the auction-rate securities market. Those types of fixed-income issues are similar to VRDOs since they each have long-term maturities but reset frequently, giving both types of securities short-term interest rate features. But VRDOs are considered more flexible since they allow put options as rates change. Full Story: http://www.indexuniverse.com/sections/newsinfocus/5696-ssga-plans-vrdo-muni-bond-etf.html
