November 2009 Blog Posts (195)


Here is the daily. If we close below 38% fib then there is more weight to the down side. This also takes out the lows.

Through 16395 there is strong resitance at 16270 which is clustered with the 50% fib level too. I will be looking for a short if we hold below this level. I will be looking on 4H and lower for more confirmation and entry.…

The rift between Japans MoF and BoJ we mentioned in Friday's article is resurfacing as the finance ministry pressures the central bank on further easing monetary policy.
