Dow Jones Analysis 12/17/08 - Stock Market


The following is Technical Analysis for the Dow Jones ( DJIA ) for 12/17/08


Dow Jones Support & Resistance Levels - December 17, 2008


Resistance Levels: 9000, 9200, 9654

Support Levels: 8750, 8500



The Dow Jones has closed over the 50 day moving average today for the first time since September. This is very bullish and if we can hold this level for a few days I think we can test the 9000 level on a closing basis with this positive Federal Reserve News. I am now buying pullbacks to and below the 10 day moving average. If and when the Dow closes back over 9000, the next resistance target would be around 9200 and then the election high of 9654. Volume was strong this afternoon and could be a sign of things to come. More Technical Analysis - Go HERE

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 8924 on 12/16/08, as the stock market soared on rate cut news from the Federal Reserve. The Dow Jones has now closed back over the 50 day moving average for the first time since early September. This is a huge buy signal for technical traders, specifically when we crossed 8750 today. I took this opportunity to buy Research in Motion ( RIMM ) this afternoon below $39 but I have a tight stop in place. Tomorrow morning we will get earnings out of Morgan Stanley ( MS ) so if those earnings are even near expectations like Goldman Sachs ( GS ) today, we could get another pop.

Art Cashin CNBC 12/16/08 - Goldman Sachs GS

Art Cashin, NYSE floor trader from UBS, was on CNBC 12/16/08 and gave his comments on what he is looking at today as far as the stock market goes.

What are you watching today Art?

I think we need to sit back and wait for the Fed and GE guidance that will be coming this afternoon. The Goldman Sachs ( GS ) earnings were neutral, weren't as bad as people expected but their rating was downgraded by Moody's. We also have to see if there is more fall out from the Madoff scandal.

Traders want to hear something on this quantitative easing from the Federal Reserve Today.
