Markets Spike As Russia/Ukraine Shows No Signs Of Escalation



March 17, 2014 – Comments (3) | RELATED TICKERS: SPY

Late last week the markets crumbled as global issues took center stage. There were significant worries that Russia might expand its invasion to more than just Crimea. Even with Crimea voting to join the Russian Federation, the market had priced in the possibility for violence and more. This has not happened and is showing no signs of happening. In addition, worries about China's economy have faded (at least for today). A solid rally is underway. Overall, expect more volatility and downside but also accept that buy the dip large bounces will be common place as more average investors continue to pile money into the markets.

My buying 100 shares of T had nothing to do with anything international.  I did so because I received dividends and I wanted to redeploy.  T has a lovely dividend rate. Or I could get .003% from a money market account.

I love how the media simply has to expalin why the daily market did what it did.  The market will do what it will do for ONE reason and ONE reason only, EARNINGS. Follow the rising earnings and you WILL make money. Everything else is short term noise.

@awallejr could the market perhaps make its move on something other than earnings? Perhaps more dependant on liquidity pumping by the central banks & large bank houses? Ie selling/buying bond instruments?

Isnt the size of the currency market something like a large truck, the size of the bond market the size of the seat of that truck and world equity markets (including US) simply size of cupholder of that truck?

It seems liquidity (credit) pumping & credit contractions move markets historically.

Actually not in the long run. This is a statistical fact. In the long run a stock will move according to earnings.  Short term, however, anything can happen.  But the media on a daily basis has this need to somehow explain why the market did what it did.
