Dow Jones Analysis 7/2/09 Stock Market Analysis

Dow Jones Chart - The following is Technical Analysis for the Dow Jones ( DJIA ) for 7/2/09

Dow Jones Industrial Average ($DJI) Support & Resistance Levels - July 2, 2009

Resistance Levels: 8630, 8700

Support Levels: 8400, 8250

The Dow Jones continues to see low volume and sideways trading. The retest of 8600 which represents and right shoulder on a head and shoulders pattern failed today. I am now watching 8400 as suport and 8600 as resistance. I strongly believe that we will soon break out of this 2 months trading range one way or the other. I will look for either a close above 8600 or below 8400 to give me direction. For More Technical Analysis - Go Here

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 8504 on 7/1/09, as the stock market went up on worse then expected economic data. Pending Home Sales and the ADP Employment were worse then expected but Wall Street seemed to shrug it off and move higher. The Dow Jones Futures started the day higher and things got even better after the open. The volume continues to be very low so you have to take these moves with a grain of salt. The volume should start coming back in August and definitely September. One big story today was the AIG Story. A reverse stock split caused shares to fall over 20%. Thursday is the last trading day of the week as the stock market is closed Friday. We will receive the jobs number and unemployment rate at 8:30am EST. Check out some of the events I will be watching for Thursday.

Stocks to Watch - 7/2/09 - Stock Market Ideas

Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ)
Daily Finan. Bull 3X Shs(ETF)(FAS) - The volumes in FAS & FAZ have really dropped over the past several trading days which tells me the FAS could be getting ready for another drop lower. Support at $9.20 on FAS continues to be solid ( each time FAS breaks below, the buyer come in ). When FAS closes below $9.20, I will most likely jump into FAZ for a swing trade. I would be a buyer of FAS in the low $8's if we ever get the opportunity again. Nothing really new with these two....just waiting for the signs of next major move either way.

Citigroup Inc (C:NYSE) - Nothing has really changed Wednesday - Citigroup stock continues to weaken as it now struggles to hold $3. Support for C is located at $2.90 and $2.85. What's even more concerning is the fact that Citi now trades below all three major moving averages and cannot even close above the 10 day moving average when tested. As soon as this trend changes, I would be a buyer of Citigroup. Until then, stay away from C stock. The 10 day moving average is currently at $3.04. Check out my Citigroup Technical Analysis. Also, visit my Citigroup stock forum.

American Intl Group, Inc. (AIG) - AIG stock started pre market on Wednesday trading around $17.50, filled the gap up to even around $23, and then fell back under $19. Investors clearly do not like the fact that they did a reverse stock split. However, shares of AIG have been very volatile and if the stock breaks up through the High of Day tomorrow, I will be jumping in for a quick trade. Keep American International Group, Inc. on your radar!

Bank of America Corp ( BAC ) - Bank of America Corporation continues trade strongly and now BAC stock is above the 200 day moving average at $13.28. This is very bullish and if the stock can close above this level, I'd expected the June high of $13.93 to be tested.

Ford Motor Company (F) - Ford came in the better then expected auto sales on Wednesday. F stock hit $6.25 earlier in the day but then pullback near $6. I continue to watch the $6.54 resistance level. Check out my Ford Technical Analysis

Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (HEB) - HEB stock had a noticeable surge on Wednesday afternoon up to about $2.79. I would probably jump into the stock for a quick trade if it can break $3. Investors and traders continue to wait for the FDA decision on their CFS drug, Ampligen. The long delay is starting to get old! Management remains silent.

Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTIC) - Nothing has really changed as far as CTIC goes. When the volume comes in, CTIC stockc usually has explosive gains. Keep an eye on these three resistance levels: $1.72, $1.78 , $1.85. Now that the forced buying is out of the way from the Russell addition, a close above $1.85 will get me back into CTIC stock. Support continues to be $1.67 and $1.57.

Spectrum Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (SPPI) - SPPI stock has been surging ahead of an FDA Approval decision. Keep an eye on this stock!

Buy the Dip - Below is a list of stocks I would be buying on any strong pullback.

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V)
MasterCard (MA)
Apple (AAPL)
Palm, Inc. (PALM)
Research In Motion Ltd. (RIMM)
Ford Motor Co. (F)
First Solar (FSLR)
McDonald's Corporation (MCD)

Ford F Stock Analysis 7/1/09 July 1, 2009

Ford Stock Chart - The following is technical analysis for Ford Motor Company ( F ) - July 1, 2009

Ford Motor Co. ( F ) Support & Resistance Levels - 7/1/09

Resistance Levels: $6.54, $8.79

Support Levels: $5.21, $4.71

Discuss Stocks -

Ford stock continues the new uptrend after hitting a bottom at $5.21 two weeks ago. I am watching the double top between $6.53-$6.54. Once this area is taken out on a closing basis, another leg higher should occur. If you are trading Ford, wait for F Stock to break $6.54 and then jump in as it should get a nice surge. For more longer term investors, wait for a Ford to show strength above $6.54 to buy. On the downside, $5.21 and $4.71 become key support levels. For more Technical Analysis - Go Here

Art Cashin CNBC 7/1/09 July 1, 2009

Art Cashin was on CNBC this morning, July 1, 2009 - and gave some comments about what he is seeing in the stock market right now. Art is a floor trader from UBS on the NYSE as well as a CNBC contributor.

Art Cashin Comments - July 1, 2009

I think the market would really like to rally, so there is usually slight prejudice in the first three trading days of the month as well as going into a holiday weekend.

The enemy of all this is that the trading is so light that any piece of news could really move that market in either direction
