Intraday Market Thought from Ashraf Laidi -

GBP GAINS across the board, completing the 7th rising week out of the last 8 weeks in a week when the Bank of Englands mixed messages regarding inflation became apparent to the public. Contrary to the rest of the G5, UKs inflation remains well above target, thereby fuelling expectations of a rate hike, which in contrast to Fed emerging rhetoric hinting at prolonged QE. A break above $1.57, to call up $1. 574055-day MA, followed by $1.5870. EURGBP nears the 0.83 support50% retracement of the… Continue

'Friday Effect' Engaged (NYSE:DIA) (NASDAQ:QQQQ)

By Nicholas Santiago on July 30th, 2010 11:01am Eastern Time

Many traders and investors may have realized by now that the major stock market indexes often get supported or defended into the weekend. We call this phenomenon the 'Friday effect'. If you have looked at a chart over the last two years most Friday's before a weekend are basically a flat to slightly positive trading day. There have been a few rare times when the major indexes have sold off sharply on a Friday, however, the key… Continue

Economic Data Sends Market On A Wild Ride (NYSE:SPY) (NYSE:BP)

By Gareth Soloway on July 30th, 2010 12:03pm Eastern Time

The big earnings announcements have subsided over the last week, but the economic reports continue to flow. Today, GDP was reported for the second quarter, 2010. It came in around the estimates at 2.4%. The futures sold sharply. Why did the futures sell sharply on a GPD number that came in line with what Wall Street had expected? Because GDP for the first quarter of 2010 was revised upward to 3.7% from 2.7%. What? How does that make… Continue

Intraday Market Thought from Ashraf Laidi -

S&P500 barely closed above its 200-day MA on Tuesday before falling Wednesday and Today. Daily stochastics show a double top, which in effect can be seen as bearish divergence. Fridays release of US Q2 GDP is expected +2.5% from 2.7% in Q1, but several economists allowing for an undershoot of 2.0%. Whether a disappointing figure would be USD negative will not only depend on the performance of equities, but also on the German-US 10 year yield differential, whose technicals indicate prolonged… Continue

Intraday Market Thought from Ashraf Laidi -

USD DROPS ACROSS THE BOARD on a combination of cautious remarks from Moodys about the US credit rating and persistent improvement in the Eurozone consumer sentiment. Although Asian equities finished around neutral territory, markets are decidedly USD-negative. AUD stabilized at 0.89 before rallying over a full cent, eyeing interim resistance at 0.9075. GBPAUD and EURAUD hourly stochastics showing deterioration but daily charts remain bullish. EURUSD continues to eye the 1.3130 target, while… Continue

Here Is Why the Market Is Under pressure Today (NASDAQ:GOOG) (NASDAQ:AMZN) (NASDAQ:BIDU)

By Nicholas Santiago on July 28th, 2010 3:18pm Eastern Time

Today the market is pulling back a little and has really been under pressure since the open. Many traders and investors are under the impression that the market weakness is because of the weak stocks such as Google Inc(NASDAQ:GOOG), and Amazon Com Inc (NASDAQ:AMZN), and Baidu Inc (NASDAQ:BIDU). However, it appears there is something bigger and more important at work today and it is the U.S. Dollar Index.

Today the U.S.… Continue

Trade Lesson: Act Like A Lion When Trading

By ITMS Education on July 28th, 2010 7:23pm Eastern Time

Many times day traders are very anxious and want to be involved in a trade all day. The market only gives a few good opportunities a day and that is when traders should react and take what the market is offering. During the Chat Room I see many traders wanting and pulling the trigger when the market is not giving the correct setup or signal to do so.

Trading is very similar to the lion in the jungle.… Continue

By InTheMoneyStocks on July 28th, 2010 10:58am Eastern Time
