No matter what good news or bad news is coming out everyday but this stock market is simply not ready for sell off. Central bankers of the world are printing money like there is no tomorrow. There has been series of bad news in last two week but stock market have managed to rallied in last two week. This only means market is heading for bigger rally before it could reverse back. Now only thing which could lead to sell off is Fridays job number falls below 150k and if Hollande wins France election.
Spain 10 year Government yield was above 6 but now its back under 5.90 as ECB stepped in once again. http://www.bloomberg.com/quote/GSPG10YR:IND/chart
As expected Dow & S&P500 were in bearish zone at the close and so the stock sold off. But the manipulated rally once again saved Dow and at the end of the day it was just down 10 point when ADP data disappointed. Tomorrow market is back into bullish zone but it depends on jobless claim if it falls below 375k and ECB does a rate cut, the market could rally above 13340. At the same time market could sell off if ECB doesnt cut interest rate.
The first level to check in Dow for upside is 13295 followed by 13338 which is important break point for the upside. While for the downside, Dow needs to break 13265 followed by 13193.
The first level to check for tomorrow in S&P500 for upside is 1415 followed by 1420 which is important break point for the upside. While for the downside, S&P500 needs to break 1400 followed by 1393.
Use technical indicator 20 (simple moving average) sma and 50 sma to better visualise uptrend or downtrend of this manipulated market. If 20 sma crosses 50 sma and 20 sma is up, then the stocks will go higher, if 50 sma crosses 20 sma and if 50 sma is up, then stocks will go lower. In the chart red circle is bearish sign, blue circle is bullish sign. Green line is represented by SMA(50) and red line is SMA(20), while blue line actual stock value.
