December 4, 2008 Stock Market Recap

December 4, 2008 Stock Market Recap

It was another choppy session but unlike the last two this session ended on a weak note. The late selloff erased yesterday’s gains and put the market back in the middle of Monday’s trading range. More important, the indices are at a point where they’ll have to break out of the coils they’ve been making. Hopefully that means either up or down but more sideways action would also take them out of the coils. I suspect the indices will be gapping out of these consolidation patterns after tomorrow morning’s payroll data. I’d give a slight edge to a gap up only because it seems that expectations are incredibly low.

Trend Table

Slight downgrades to the short-term trends since all three indices are so close to their 10-day moving averages.

*** 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.

Did you hear the good news? Obama is making it better for us already! Most people don't realize how much money there is out there. During economic times like this, there is more money to be had than ever. Because of the bailouts and economy, lenders are bending over backwards to bail you out too. Believe it or not, there is people getting tons of cheap money nowdays to start businesses, buy homes, pay off debt, and more. Bailout is for YOU
