A market could refer to either the stock market, the export market, the availability of housing mortgages, and so on. When you say "the trouble is now over", it means that the "trouble" or the problem has now been solved or has been settled. "the trouble is far from over" means that the "trouble" will not be solved or put right for a long time to come, possibly because of the present economic difficulties such as inflation, high oil prices, disruptions in electrical power supply, etc.
