China ADR Stock Market Opportunities

President Obama's Tuesday Congress Speech

First, I want to say President Barack Obama gave a great speech yesterday as he looked to create the sensitive balance of hope and reality to reassure Americans being affected by the economic crisis that they would survive a "day of reckoning."

Shanghai Stock Exchange
By Jim Trippon China Stock Digest

U.S. In China’s Rearview Mirror - Who’s That In The Rearview Mirror? US

If there’s one thing America has long been famous for, it is our longstanding love affair with cars. Ask anyone who currently has the biggest automobile market in the world and the answer would just have to be the United States. But as of now, that answer is dead wrong.

Only two years ago, China’s exploding automobile industry raced past Japan to become the world's No. 2 vehicle market. Now China has surpassed the United States to become the world’s largest market for automobiles.

China overtook the United States as the world's largest auto market for the first time in January, when it sold more cars, 735,500 units, according to the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers.

As every investor knows, America’s auto industry is desperately weak and on the verge of bankruptcy without the help of ongoing government bailouts. A near-term recovery in vehicle sales in the U.S. is highly unlikely as the recession and unemployment take their toll on consumers’ wallets.

The Chinese auto market now has America in the rearview mirror and the U.S. is unlikely to regain the lead. Vehicle sales in China rose 6.7 percent to 9.38 million units last year. Sales may grow another 5 percent this year (considered sluggish by Chinese standards). Although China is growing while the U.S. is shrinking, the China Association of Automobile Manufacturers acknowledges that the latest figures show the slowest pace of growth since 1998.

Recently one investor asked our staff why we were not more interested in making more investments in the booming Chinese auto industry. The answer is quite straightforward and requires some understanding of conditions in mainland China.

To describe the situation in a nutshell, the Chinese auto industry looks much like the U.S. industry did in the 1920’s and 1930’s when America was making Packards and Reos and countless other now-extinct brands. China currently has more than 80 car companies and an industry-wide shakeout is inevitable.

Predicting who will survive the battle for survival in this industry is impossible, partly because many Chinese provincial governments are major stakeholders in failing enterprises and may be willing to use bailout funds to prop up unviable corporations. That kind of action threatens to prolong the survival of the weakest and to make it more difficult for established automakers to survive.

Anyone who has visited China recently will have noticed that BMWs, Volkswagens, Toyota and GM brands dominate the roads in every major city. All foreign automobile firms operate in partnership with Chinese enterprises. But in the countryside, cheap and undependable brands like the “Florid” are popular because they sell for less than $8,000 per vehicle.

It’s a very messy and unpredictable situation for investors. Does that mean there are no investment options related to China’s booming auto industry? Not at all.

There are related industrial sectors which are far less fragmented and more likely to make a dependable profit. We’ll be looking more closely at the safer ways to play the China auto boom in coming editions of the China Stock Digest.

Weekly Stock Pick

Weekly Stock Pick

As I scan the stock charts this Monday morning, my opinion that the stock market was heading much lower happened after the upside rally to the this current bear market started the beginning of December. I still see the market heading lower, although this week I’m looking for another dead cat bounce after last week’s big sell-off. With the White House and Treasury Department late Friday seeking to tone down rumors that Citibank and Bank of America are about to become totally owned subsidiaries of Uncle Sam, it shows that Wall-Street has no faith yet from what Capitol Hill is saying or doing. Early on Friday, executives at Citigroup and Bank of America both said they are not in danger of nationalization, but their statements did little to calm the markets. The worse is yet to come in my opinion.

Through this bear market I’ve heard a lot of analysts and pros saying there’s great value and to buy stocks right now based on the fundamentals and or the technical’s. When stock prices were flying high in the past, was it fundamentals and or technical’s driving them? Yes and no, maybe so, who knows, and does it even matter in the end? I’m more inclined to think greed was and always has been the driver. Now prices are in a down-trend, and what are the reasons for the selling? I would say simply, fear. My best suggestion is that no matter if you’re buying or short-selling in any type of market, is to always using stop-loss. It will save your account in case the market goes against you, and you can also save your breath about making statements as to why or why not the price moved the way it did. Want do you really want? Do you want to be right or do you want to make money?

My stock pick this week is a new buy position on an American company that manufactures and distributes paint products around the world. The reason why I picked this stock to buy this week and every week is that it’s showing a low-risk high-reward buy trade setup on the chart. I’m not basing my analysis so much on anything the company is doing or any other fundamental reason. The chart is showing me a 3:1 plus reward risk ratio, so if I’m right I have good return, and if I’m wrong I’ve got a small stop-loss. It’s about calculating the odds and taking a position that stacks those odds in your favor on every trade or investment. Win some lose some and in the long term get rich.

Recession Proof Business Report

Recession Proof Business Report
No doubt you're hearing about a brand new Forex report making the rounds this week called "The Forex Conspiracy". Clever title. It's meant to catch your attention.

Click here in case you missed it:

Did it catch your attention? It caught mine, and I produce my own Forex reports quite frequently. And as soon as I read it, I wanted to share it with you.

Why? Because I believe the uncertain markets we're dealing with are here to stay for a long time, and we may never go back to "business as usual" with regard to trading.

And that requires different and new approaches to trading the markets. Approaches like I've been teaching for years and that the media is slowly realizing just might have some merit, but that's a different story.

So when I see other smart traders start following suit, I get excited, because I think it's our duty to educate anyone willing to listen to ideas that have the potential to change their lives for good.

So before you dig in to this new report, try not to get too rattled. It paints a pretty bleak picture of the current state of things, and while I think there IS a lot of truth to that, the message you want to walk away with is:

Where does the potential lie that can maximize your odds of success?

And then take it from there. I think you'll agree that if you're not currently trading Forex, at least for part of your portfolio, you might be missing out on some great potential.

Anyway, enjoy. You can grab "The Forex Conspiracy" here:

With ETFs It’s a Trader’s Market

By ETFTrends

The face of exchange traded fund (ETF) investing is changing, as well as the traditional buy-and-hold approach. The reasons are many as states in an article I wrote for Investment News, explaining why the ETF industry is ripe to become a traders’ market.

ETF Profit Driver
The buy-and-hold strategy is in intensive care. But many don’t seem prepared to do away with the idea altogether. In which case, a better strategy may prove to be a tactical overlay model using exchange traded funds in which 60%-70% is buy-and-hold and the remaining 30%-40% is actively traded using the 200-day moving average.

When choosing an ETF, there are many choices, so here are things to consider before jumping in:

Liquidity

Be sure to check numbers before buying, as an ETF that does not have assets will not be as liquid as the larger ones. A good point of reference is $100 million in assets.

Commissions

Be aware of the brokerage fee, as the flexibility of an ETF also comes wit a brokerage fee. Every firm is different in the way commission charges are made.

Average Pricing

When trading the same ETF for multiple accounts, it’s possible that each account could get a different price if the ETF was traded for each individual account. If you do a block trade for the full number of shares you want to buy or sell, then you can allocate the shares to the individual accounts with the same average price. This ensures that all clients will receive the same purchase or sale price.

Limit Orders

When placing a trade, you can put the trade in at market and execute it at whatever the going rate is at the time you submit the order. This allows you to place a cap on what you are willing to pay and keeps your price within a specific range.

Economic recession is a significant decline in economic activity spread across the country, lasting more than a few months, normally mostly noticeable in real GDP growth, real personal income, employment from the non-farm payroll monthly data reports, industrial production, and wholesale-retail sales.

Weekly Stock Pick

Buy Sell Hold
As I run and analyze scans of the stock charts this Monday morning looking for low-risk high-reward trade opportunities, I’m thinking about CNBC’s “House of Cards” presentation on the what, who, how, when, and why of the current financial crisis which amongst many other mistakes made by different people, Wall Street created CDO’s from USA’s Mortgage backed securities from the Subprime mortgage market, and corporate debt and selling them to anyone around the world that was looking for AAA rated investments. CDOs – Collateralized Debt Obligations. These structured products are highly complicated investments. The debt securities are bundled and re-sold but often buyers don't really know exactly what they are purchasing. Even Alan Greenspan admitted he was befuddled by the CDO. The why of this crisis is most easily answerable . . . money and greed for more of it. For the rest of the story I highly recommend you watch the presentation, and more than once if possible to learn this valuable financial lesson.

I pick stocks to buy or sell based on technical analysis first, then review the current and forward fundamentals to see if there is more support for a buy or sell. When prices are going up, and above levels considered to be normal, how does the market explain and or justify the price rise? A variety of reasons justifiable and not, with the number one reason being greed in my opinion. Example, why did Oil peak out at $148 or so a year ago, and why is it at $40 of so now? The bottom line is greed for it to hit 148, and now its fear that it’s down to 40 and below. Is it supply and demand? Well yes, and its fear and greed that fuels the supply and demand.

I would say greed is good in that it has built today’s societies to what they are today providing a better life for a majority of people around the world, but greed not kept in balance and used to excess is bad as it can destroy what has been created even faster. Part of the problem for the fear and greed factor is a lack of financial intelligence I see. With more financial intelligence by everyone, excess in the markets might be much less or at least to prevent major financial disasters like this to be averted. So until more people have more financial intelligence, and even more important take action on that financial intelligence, the money game of fear and greed will continue and volatility will be a place for traders to profit from.

My stock pick this week is a major company involved in facilitating financial transactions between buyers and sellers of financial instruments. With the fear in the markets right now, fundamentally I would say there will be less money sloshing around to be invested and traded right now. The companies earnings could be under pressure into the near future caused by this slow down in demand or should I call it demand destruction caused by you know what. Technically, the chart is showing the price is at the top of its recent range also.

Deflation Why Worry Free Guide

Deflation Why Worry
Free Deflation Survival Guide

Our friends at Elliott Wave International have just put together an expansive NEW Deflation Survival Guide. The free 60-page eBook is packed with Robert Prechter's most important teachings and warnings about deflation. This is one of the most valuable resources EWI has ever offered at no cost. Learn more below or download it now – for free.

We want to tell you about a financial analyst who’s made the journey from fame to outcast and back. We want to tell you about the man who successfully forecast today’s investment environment when virtually everyone, everywhere said he was wrong.

Please allow me to share with you a quote from a popular journalist of the early 1900s, Kin Hubbard:

“There's no secret about success. Did you ever know a successful man who didn't tell you about it?”

To that, we reply, “Would you have ever benefited from his success if he hadn’t?”

The irony about this quote, and success itself, is that the road to success is often littered with scores of detractors.

They try to discredit your accomplishments.

They try to disprove your research.

Finally, once your mounting evidence forms a mountain too high to climb, they find a way to jump on your bandwagon.

In 2002, when Robert Prechter released a book called Conquer the Crash – You Can Survive and Prosper in a Deflationary Depression, an eventual New York Times, Wall Street Journal best-seller, the detractors were out in full force.

The elite financial community labeled Prechter – the 1980s “Guru of the Decade” – an outcast, a man preoccupied with the concerns of “small children.” Experts from all schools of the economics profession said Prechter’s deflationary scenario was “utter nonsense,” and as likely to happen as “being eaten by piranhas.”

“It couldn’t happen!”

“It never will!” they guaranteed.

Yet … here it is. Since the real estate top in 2005, deflation has festered its way into almost all asset classes, ravaging the portfolios of millions. If you’ve been spared from deflation’s mighty jaws, you surely know someone who hasn’t.

Steadfastly throughout the years, Prechter issued warning after warning about the coming deflation. He provided helpful tips to investors, students, homeowners and business people alike on how to survive the coming deflation. Those who heeded his warnings have kept themselves, their families and their money safe. Some even realized modest gains while others endured life-altering losses.

If you haven’t yet given Prechter’s deflation argument your full attention, we write today to tell you that yesterday was the best time to do so.

Prechter’s complete writings on deflation literally fill thousands of pages. Now, for a limited time, Prechter has compiled his most important deflation writings into a special 60-page Deflation Survival Guide.

Until today, most of the forecasts and advice in this still-prescient eBook have only been released to Prechter’s faithful subscribers. You will not find its entire contents in other books or from other sources. This is your definitive Deflation Survival Guide, and for a limited time, it’s yours for free.

Geithner and Stocks

Timothy Geithner
Geithner and Stocks: Can the Entire Media Be THAT Wrong?

Wow, it looks like the stock market went a lot lower yesterday. Perhaps you feel the need to read news reports that claim to tell you "why." But, since they all say the same thing, please allow me to save you the time. I'll keep it to a sentence:

Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner's comments made stocks go down.

Not enough, you say? All right, here are some direct quotes:

"THANKS, TIM" (with chart of Dow prices going lower)
– Drudge Report

"The stock market dipped almost as soon as Mr. Geithner began speaking, with the Dow Jones industrial average down about 350 points, or more than 4 percent, at 1:30 p.m."
– The New York Times

"Stocks Tumble as Bailout Plan Is Unveiled -- The Dow Jones Industrial Average was down more than 300 points after Treasury Secretary Tim Geithner revealed details of the bank-bailout plan. Earlier, the blue-chip index was down less than 100 points."
– CNBC

"The equities market is reacting to the Obama administration's latest attempt to stabilize the economy largely as it did the last eight times the government unveiled steps to curb the crisis, beginning in October 2007."
– Market Watch

"Investors snapped up stocks last week in anticipation of the plan's unveiling, snapping a four-week losing spell for the markets. But investors were quick to unload their shares after Mr. Geithner, in a late morning speech, outlined a plan to stabilize financial markets but didn't provide the sort of specific details that many investors hoped they would hear."
– The Wall Street Journal

See? Each one has its own twist, of course -- including the assertion that Geithner trashed the Dow simply by talking. Yet the premise is the same in each case. So, I'm left with just one question: Is it TRUE? Did his comments really make stocks go down?

I believe I can answer that (so can anyone whose I.Q. matches that of a single-cell organism). Just bear with me on a couple of details -- not because the devil is in them, but because it takes a brief timeline to show how stupid it is to suppose that Tim Geithner made stocks go down.

Geithner began his remarks at 11:11am Eastern and finished 19 minutes later, at 11:30. At the moment he began talking the Dow Industrials were already down 207 points. As for the 19 minutes in question, prices fluctuated up and down within about a 50-point range. When he finished, the Dow was down some 215 points. When the session closed at 4:00pm the Dow ended 382 points lower. Which is to say: the market fell further BEFORE Geithner spoke than it did AFTER.

You be the judge.

Finding after-the-fact "reasons" for what happens should be easy, but even then you can't often trust conventional sources -- especially when they all agree.

Think for yourself. It makes a difference. And speaking of independent thinking, reading some Elliott Wave analysis "for yourself" is also an option.

Good day, safe investing and trading!

U.S. Stock Markets Treading Water

Bail-Out
Buy on the Rumor - Sell on the News

In recent days, the widely popular "News-Moves-Markets" notion has fallen faster than the role-model image of Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps (pictures of him "inhaling" pot were posted to the world, wide, web).

Unemployment

Here's the deal: Late last week, the news du jour was jobs; namely, the February 6 Labor Department report on unemployment. And, according to the financial in-crowd, the number was set to let the market DOWN, way down. See:

"Job jitters may weigh on stocks." (AP)

"One strategist expects the Dow to retest its November closing low if this week's government jobs report disappoints" and says: "It's like climbing up a hill of marbles." (The Australian)

"Wall Street set for lower open on jobs data… It's not good. There's some selling in the markets on it. I think this is a precursor for tomorrow." (Reuters)

Financial Informmation or Dis-Information?

YET -- when the "Slow Motion Train Wreck" (Wall Street Journal) of the data was released on February 6, showing a "brutal" uptick in the unemployment rate (from 7.2% to 7.6%) -- the Dow Jones Industrial Average enjoyed a 200-plus point RALLY.
In the economic scheme of things, it doesn't get much worse than the biggest one-month job loss in 35 years. Still, the Dow soared. Put that in your fundamental "pipe" and smoke it.

8 compelling charts. In-depth analysis. Original commentary. The current Short Term Update announces the start of a "whole new ballgame" in stocks.

As for an interpretation of market movements that relies on clear and consistent "internal" data -- time/price cycles, momentum, sentiment extremes, and Elliott Wave structure -- the current Short Term Update is the one-stop shop.

Treading Water Charts

In the February 6 Short Term Update, our analysts presented EIGHT eye-popping charts that revealed a striking commonality among ALL of the major financial indexes: Each one has treaded water above a long-standing shelf of support, with coincident breaks below those levels at the 2002 low.

The Averages Over The Years

To wit: the Dow Industrials above 8000 since 1997; the S&P 500 above 800 since 1997; the Nasdaq Composite above 1500 since 1996; the Dow Transports above 3000 since 1996; and the CRB Index of commodities above 200 since 1980.

S&P500 and 1937

For the S&P 500 in particular, the act of holding its head above the "psychologically significant" shelf goes back years, to 1937 to be exact. Here, Short Term Update draws on the following chart by former Merrill Lynch chief technician Bob Farrell:

S&P500

Short Term Update adds the following insight: "As Farrell notes, 'History does not repeat itself exactly,' but its been doing better than a rough approximation of the 1937/1939 experience since last summer."

In the end, one truth remains: At each point when the indexes sunk below their respective "shelves of support," REFLATION had (in due time) jumped in to pull the markets back up ABOVE the water.

The evidence of Short Term Update, and the complete Financial Forecast Service package, shows whether the case is true now.

Weekly Stock Pick

Buy Sell Hold
Last Friday the jobs report hit with another 598k jobs lost in January the market moved up inspite of the bad employment news. Now Wall-Street and Main-Street are looking to the government to pass the huge stimulus plan help things out. I’m skeptical as many others are as to whether the current rally is sustainable right now, whether the stimulus plan is passed and especially if it’s not. Back in 2008 the big bail-out money that was given out and the big Fed rate cuts just resulted in buy on the rumor sell on the news rallies. I’m betting the same thing this time again too.

Last week my stock pick was a short sell on Nustar Energy. So far so good with tight stop-loss. This week I’m putting another short sell on another big energy company. Fundamentally energy is a great investment long term as long as the economy is growing, but the oil bubble pop last year, with the economy now in the toilet with who knows when it’s getting better, and demand destruction still in place, the deflation environment is going to hurt everyone, and it’s showing in the energy stock charts.

If you now see that we are in recession, I would suggest to start looking at the components in place currently that can lead to depression now. The worst is yet to come in my opinion. I’m still looking for another big market sell-off anytime. This recent rally has been a weak one at best. Then again the bear market rally could keep extending up before the next phase of downtrend continues.

Short Sell Chesapeake Energy. Ticker CHK

Sell Entry: 18.85 to 17.46

Stop-Loss: 18.86 or more.

Take Profit Areas: 16.56, 15.66 to 14.76, 13.64 to 12.02, 12.41 to 11.85, 9.57 to 9.13

Last week natural gas storage levels dropped providing a positive for Chesapeake. Another possible positive is recent legislation that has been introduced to increase tax credits for buying natural gas powered vehicles along with a bill to increase domestic production of natural gas autos and trucks. These initiatives if and when brought to completion will take time to implement and affect the market. In the mean-time the economic slowdown provides a better short-sell than long position on CHK and other energy stocks near term we see.

Chesapeake Energy Company Profile

Chesapeake Energy Corporation, an oil and natural gas exploration and production company, engages in the acquisition, exploration, and development of properties for the production of crude oil and natural gas from underground reservoirs.

Live Online Trading Classes Start this Sunday

Online Trading Class Videos
Live Online Trading Classes Start this Sunday

And last Wednesday night, Options University announced that the next round of their ever-popular Live Options Mastery Classes are starting this Sunday evening, February 8, 2009 at 9:00 PM EST).

Click here for the web page for more information:

This is 'hands-down' the best options training available anywhere and at any price. But don't take my word for it.

Here are two recent student reviews of the classes, telling you in their own words, what the Live Mastery Trading Classes are like. There is valuable information below that you're about to have a chance to profit from yourselves.

Hi Brett,

You guys just continue to impress me. I took the Mastery course last year. When I finished, I felt that I had acquired the kind of knowledge that only many years of active trading would have otherwise brought me, and in such a short time that it was
truly amazing.

I loved being able to review key parts of the lectures as many times as I wanted; the flexibility of being able to go at my own pace was a boon for me.

Ron's clear teaching method made even the most subtle concepts easy to grasp; I made sure I didn't go forward to the next module until I was certain I understood the concepts Ron was teaching.

When I finished the course I gravitated toward premium collection strategies as the ones that best suit my temperament.

The Mastery class made me understand that I could use these premium collection strategies in all markets; I just needed to understand the environment the market was in to understand which strategy to use.

I have been even more successful in my trading than I imagined I could be, all thanks to the Mastery course. Now I've received, without asking or even knowing it was available, the 2007 Mastery series.

I've never experienced an organization that continues to add value for existing clients in the way that you guys do. It's amazing that you could make something so great even better!

More examples, more clearly organized, even easier to follow; I have been making my way through the CDs by way of review and am learning even more than I did the first time through.

The Live Options Mastery classes leave absolutely nothing out. By itself, the Mastery series is the best bargain out there in the realm of options education.

With the additional support of web sessions with experts in various areas of market knowledge, you guys offer a more comprehensive options trading education than anyone else out there that I've run across, and I looked a long time before I found Options University and the Mastery Series.

Thank you so much for your commitment to your students; it's paid off big-time for me.

Kate Daniel

Another Testimonial for Options University

I began trading in the early 90's and since that beginning I, like many other traders, have attended a number of weekend seminars and have participated in many other learning efforts. Some of these were beneficial and some were not but all were
rather expensive.

I have read a number of books about options and most of them were greek to me, pun intended. Fortunately someone recommended Options University's "Live Options Mastery Class".

I am what I consider a young 74 year old and in my years I have experienced many professors, teachers and instructors, some very good and some not so good.

Ron Ianieri not only knows options from the "FLOOR" up but has a most unique ability to teach what he knows in a way that is very special. He starts at the beginning and puts meaning to the Greeks and lifts the veil of mystery that I know many have
experienced.

In addition to the live classes, which are recorded for later review, Options University provides a wealth of additional information that is very helpful. I feel like I have received excellent value for what I have paid for these classes.

I am still new to options but I am now profitable thanks to Ron's excellent teaching skills.

It is a pleasure to recommend Ron Ianieri and the Live Options Mastery Class.

Robert McKee

Options University has dozens and dozens more on file like these, but that's not the point. The point is, you now have a rare chance to experience for yourself what this
training is all about, like what Kate and Robert talked about above.

Perhaps you've been to one or more of those "weekend seminars" Robert mentioned that blow into your town from time to time, and "tease" you just enough to get you to part with your hard-earned money for a class, only to learn after that you need "one more class" to REALLY understand options, etc. etc. I'm sure some of you have "been there, done that."

Options University refuses to play that game.

In this 16-week Live Mastery Class series you'll learn everything you need to know about how to succeed in options trading. And guess what? The tuition is a fraction of even one class offered by those other "weekend seminar" guys.

So why get caught up in the "one expensive class after another" trap, when you can get all you need in one class series? Plus as Kate mentioned above, you'll get CD's of the class sessions when completed, so you can go over them again and
again.

All in all, the total value of these classes vs. the small tuition is immense. So now the ball's in your court. Are you going to miss out on perhaps the only time in 2009 to get in on these unique classes. Well, the clock is ticking, and the few available spaces are being filled fast.

Weekly Stock Pick

President Obama’s new administration will be dealing with Wall Street bonuses and executive compensation this week that will be included in the TARP program for those companies seeking money from TARP to heal them survive. Next week the administration will be dealing with financial industry issues after discussions between industry reps and government officials over the weekend. Wall Street firms were scolded by Obama for giving out large bonuses while at the same time asking the government and taxpayers for bail-out money. A paradox to say the least.

My technical scans this Monday morning are showing a lot of sell candidates. The market simply does not look that healthy right now, and things look like there still more pain to come before things get better. I’m looking at an energy company which operates oil pipelines, storage facilities and asphalt refineries. It posted higher than expected quarterly profits last week, assisted by a three times increase in sales at its asphalt and fuels marketing segment. The company also provided a first quarter earnings range, the upper range of which was in line with analysts' estimates. Long term I like this company fundamentally. Short term, I’m seeing a low-risk high-reward short-sale on it. Short it now, and or wait for a pullback to buy in longer term later on.
