11/21 - Stock Market Comments
A lower open today, after a Doji type day on Friday, after breaching the lower support of the pennant formation, with stochastics heading down, it becomes very easy to analyze this market should be in a wave three to the downside. Be short.

The markets are showing alternate trading days, up one day, down the next day, as the pennant formation keeps coming toward a point. Yesterday the Dow appeared to close at the lower trend channel. Today's premarket futures indicate a bullish open. Obviously the market has not figured out a direction yet. Remain long and short.

Today's lower open indicates the pennant formation is going to be the predominant indicator. A very strong reversal to the upside would be required to break this market out through the upper resistance levels. Keep a mixture of longs and shorts in the portfolio until this market breaks out of its trading range.

Be careful, today's positive trading on the open may merely be the recovery of the panic/ excessive selling of Thursday's trading. The important indicator is that the 200 day moving average is acting as a resistance level. Watch to see if today's trading does not bring the Dow back up to the 200 day moving average T-line to test for resistance. Any buying should be followed by fast closing if the markets fail at the 200 day moving average.

Italy is causing a bearish reaction in the markets today. However, be careful not to react to today's knee-jerk reaction. Once the natural market move is over, cooler ends should still prevail, realizing the US stock market is still a safe haven. Add some shorts on the open but be prepared to close them quickly if the buyers come back into the market.

A failure of bullish movement in today's trading would give more evidence that the evening star signal was still in control, especially if the Dow closed back down below the T line. That would make the 50 day moving average a viable target. Weakness in the NASDAQ but also indicate a failure of the 200 day moving average. Be ready to short.
11/3 - Stock Market Comments
Last night the futures were trading well into the negative territory. However, Thursday's open indicated a very strong futures. Any buying today should be done with the idea that if the market starts going down, close out positions immediately. A confirmed uptrend requires a close above the T-line.
