Dow Jones Analysis 12/9/08 - Stock Market

The following is Technical Analysis for the Dow Jones for 12/9/08

Dow Jones Support & Resistance Levels - December 9, 2008

Resistance Levels: 9000, 9323, 9653

Support Levels: 8831, 8675, 8558, 8350

The Dow Jones broke through 8831, 8923, 9000, but failed to close above the 50 day moving average today. This is a level we haven't tested for awhile and this is where the real fight will begin. The Dow Jones has support at 8831, 8675, and the 10 day moving average at 8558. These are levels I will look to buy, especially pullbacks to the 10 day moving average. Keep in mind, we broke through two previous high points today ( 8831, 8923 ) and this is very bullish. However, we have bounced 1500 points in the past two weeks from the lows. If we get a nice year end rally, we could be looking at testing the Election High of 9653.95 but this is a level where i'd start to sell and will be doing so. Keep an eye on the 10 day moving average for a sign of a break down if we close under it. We have only closed under the 10 day moving average once in the past 11 trading session. If you get two straight days this will be your bearish sign.

Stock Market Report 12/8/08 Dow Jones

Have the Stock Market's Bottomed? That is the question circulating Wall Street today as the Dow Jones rips through 8831 Resistance and approaches a test of 9000. The Dow Jones is currently seeing some nice buying volume this morning due to Barack Obama's potential stimulus plans and also a possible big three auto bailout lurking around the corner. How we will end the day today, this is the million dollar question. We all know that these markets are a bit schizo and what goes up in the morning could go the other way in the last hour of trading. Technically, we are looking really good today. I don't think there is anything to worry about unless we break back through 8831 on the Dow Jones. I will have more analysis later tonight after we close today.

Stock to Watch December 8, 2008 - I am watching Hartford Financial ( HIG ) today. I shorted it earlier, took my gains, but it is starting to look a bit weak after going from $9 on Friday to hitting $18 this morning. I think a lot of shorts got caught with this stock and I feel it is overdone to the upside. A break below $16 would be very bearish.

Also watching QID - will add more to protect my Google ( GOOG ) position if these market do sell off this afternoon.

As you probably know, the Dry Bulk Shipping index can tell you a lot about the state of the World Economy. When Bulk Shipping Rates are at all time highs, the World Economy is outstanding. When Bulk Shipping Rates are as low as they have been lately, it signifies that the world economy has come to a screeching halt. Most of the stocks above are getting a huge bounce today as the stock market bounces back. This could be due to the fact that the Baltic Dry and Baltic Cap index have been rebounding lately. Nevertheless, these indexes are down almost 95% from the highs as iron ore shipments have come to a halt.

Baltic Dry Index ( BDI ) - 671 Up 8

Art Cashin Comments - December 8th, 2008

I still feel good about the markets, we had a nice reversal Friday, closed up on bad news, bottoming process, won't go all in until next week, we could have another bump in the road due to some cycles coming together.

The Santa Claus rally might be beginning, and if you listen closely, you might hear sleigh bells.
