December 2, 2008 Stock Market Recap

December 2, 2008 Stock Market Recap

Normally 4% gains would be big news but not so much after losing 9% yesterday. But I do think we saw some promising action today. Buyers were able to withstand two selloff attempts. The late day rally was quite impressive and brought the indices back near the highs of the day. Of course another way to look at today is as a confused market. The indices swung over 3% three times in a single session. That’s making the volatility junkies quite happy.

There’s still a lot of economic data to be released this week which could spark a big move one way or the other. But I would not be surprised to see the indices perched right at their September trendlines at Thursdays close just to have maximum drama for Friday’s payroll data.

*** I’m simply using the indices’ relations to their 200, 50 and 10-day moving averages to tell me the long, intermediate and short-term trends, respectively.
