Support Levels: 7172, 7000, 6895, 6500



The Dow Jones snapped back after a weak ending yesterday. We broke and closed above yesterdays high of 7392 which is very bullish. The next resistance levels are the previous 7449 low and also 7500. You then have some resistance in the 7600's but then its clear sailing to the 50 day moving average and 8000. Today's low of 7172 will now be a big support level.

Nasdaq Analysis 3/18/09 Stock Market Analysis

The following is Technical Analysis for the Nasdaq ( IXIC ) for 3/18/09

Nasdaq Support & Resistance Levels - March 18, 2009

Resistance Levels: 1472, 1500, 1556, 1600

Support Levels: 1400, 1364, 1300, 1253.22

http://stockcharts.com - Chart



The Nasdaq gained back all of the losses yesterday and broke through recent high of 1445. The 50 day moving average has now come down to 1472 which provides additional resistance as does the 1500 level. Tommorrow will be a big test for the Nasdaq! Support of 1400 has held over the last few days and this is a very positive sign. A break below 1400 would take the Nasdaq down for a retest of the 10 day moving average. I will be watching how the Nasdaq reacts over the next several weeks at the 50 day moving average. For More Technical Analysis - Go Here

Dow Jones Industrial Average ( DJIA ) Close - 7395.70 Up 178.73
Nasdaq Stock Market Close - 1462.11 Up 58.09

Libor Rates - 3/17/09

Commodities Closing Prices - 3/17/09

Gold - 915.70
Oil - 48.96
Natural Gas - 3.82

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 7396 on 3/17/09, as the stock market gained back the losses from yesterdays final hour. The Dow Jones Futures were slightly higher this morning due to better then expected housing data. At 3pm, the sell off did not come and this forced shorts to cover going into the close. However, the volume wasn't outstanding but it was still decent.

Oil Prices tested $50 today but failed late in the trading session. This will be no easy hurdle to get through and sustain due to the oil build up in the USA plus all the oil sitting in tanker ships in other countries.

Tomorrow we will get a statement from the Federal Reserve which could be a market mover. Click Here to view my daily stock market report. I will also have full technical analysis for the stock market tonight - Right Here

Stock Market News March 17, 2009 3/17/09

The following is a summary of the top stock market news moving the market in today's trading action. I will highlight events that could potentially move the stock market in the next day or two and report things that I am watching.


Stock Market Report - 3.17.09

Building Permits: This morning we got building permits data that was a bit better then expected. Building permits, which are less volatile than the housing starts data, rose 3% in February to a 547,000 annual rate. Permits for single-family units rose 11% to a 373,000 rate, the largest percentage gain in 18 years. So this news was good news this morning.

Aloca ( AA ) - $5.56 Down 9.17% - Alcoa (NYSE:AA) announced today a series of operational and financial actions to significantly improve the Company’s cost structure and liquidity. The operational actions will reduce costs by more than $2.4 billion annually, reduce capital expenditures an additional $1.0 billion in 2010, and improve working capital by $800 million in 2009. The Company is reducing the quarterly common stock dividend from $0.17 to $0.03 per share, saving more than $400 million annually, and launching a public offering of common stock and convertible notes planned to yield proceeds of approximately $1.1 billion

Oil Prices - $48.38 - Oil going up toward resistance at $50.50 - If Oil starts trading above $50 for a few days, you could see a quick move toward $60. This would actually be good for the stock market as oil prices take the temperature of the economy.

Dow Jones 30 Leaders - Wal Mart ( WMT ), ExxonMobile ( XOM ), Home Depot ( HD ), Citigroup ( C ). XOM - Exxon Mobil to build tech center in Shanghai - HD - Home Depot up on the good housing data above.

General Electric ( GE ) - $9.77 Up 1.14% - GE Transportation Signs 47 Million Agreement with Trenitalia

Fed Meeting - Two day Fed meeting starts today, we will get a Fed statement out tomorrow afternoon at 2:15pm Est. This could be a market mover.

Art Cashin CNBC 3/17/09 March 17, 2009

Art Cashin was on CNBC this morning, March 17, 2009 - and gave some comments about the stock market on St Patrick's Day 2009.

Art Cashin Comments -3/17/09

Is the stock market rally / bounce over?

The jury still out, yesterday the market go ahead of itself, hit some resistance around 7400, and then closed down. We would not like to have two down days in a row.....more down action could take us down to retest 720 on the S&P 500.

If this rally isn't the real deal we will fail badly, but from that will spring the real rally.

Whats next?

Watching for what comes out of TALF, if that doesn't work, the Fed might get aggressive and go in and buy toxic assets.

For all of Art's Comments, go here
