Dow Jones Analysis 7/20/09 Stock Market Analysis

Dow Jones Chart - The following is Technical Analysis for the Dow Jones ( DJIA ) for 7/20/09

Dow Jones Industrial Average ($DJI) Support & Resistance Levels - July 20, 2009

Resistance Levels: 8878, 9000

Support Levels: 8600, 8480, 8331, 8250

The Dow Jones closed up for the 5th straight day as the monster snap back rally continues. Next week is the busiest week for earnings for the season so expect there to be a lot of volatility. I am looking to buy pullbacks to 8500 as well as down to 8300. I also realize that if the Dow Jones closes over 8800, there could be a sharp move for a retest of 9000.A close back below 8250 at any time would be bearish and the sellers will come back once again.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 8744 on 7/17/09, as the stock market traded flat after several bank related earnings. The Dow Jones Futures were lower in pre market but stocks were mostly flat all day long. We will find out Monday or Tuesday whether or not CIT Group ( CIT ) gets funding from the private sector. The Government has indicated that they will not bail out the company. A bankruptcy would be really bad for up to a million small business which include key retailers who need to purchase their Christmas and back to school items.

The hottest sector today was Energy. Stocks such as Headwaters Inc. (HW) - Eagle Rock Energy Partners, L.P. (EROC) - Superior Well Services Inc. (SWSI) - Aegean Marine Petroleum Network Inc. (ANW) and Venoco, Inc. (VQ) saw nice gains!

Next week will be light on economic data but one of the busiest weeks for earnings. Among the companies releasing earnings will be Apple Inc ( AAPL ). Check out some of the events I will be watching for Monday.

Discuss Stocks -

Stocks to Watch - 7/20/09 - Stock Market Ideas

CIT Group Inc. (NYSE: CIT) - Reuters is reporting that CIT Group is in talks with Goldman Sachs and JP Morgan for 2-3 Billion in Short Term Financing. This is causing CIT stock to surge to around $0.90 per share. CIT Stock Resistance Levels: $1.08, $1.37, $1.50, $1.67, $1.77

MOTORS LIQUIDATION (MTLQQ.PK) - Huge Reversal off the early trading lows on Friday sparked a surge from $0.39 to $0.47. $0.50 is the major resistance level to watch out for, if MTLQQ can break through that with volume, it could go back into the $0.60's and $0.70's. This is for a trade only, you don't really own anything since it is the liquidation company of the old General Motors ( GM ) or GMGMQ.

SpongeTech Delivery Systems, Inc. (SPNG.OB) - SPNG stock traded back over $0.10 on Friday on positive news. At this point, it has a lot of resistance between $0.11-$0.13 but then nothing until the $0.15-$0.18 range. I don't expect Spongtech to gain momentum unless it breaks $0.13.

BioCryst Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: BCRX) - BCRX stock exploded Friday on the following news. Biocryst has strong volume and I am watching for a break above $6.43 to go long for a retest of $7 from many years ago. BCRX is also a swine flu stock play that could catch fire this winter.

Targacept, Inc. (TRGT) - TRGT stock jumped again Friday after pausing on Thursday. On Wednesday, Targacept released the following news. The next resistance level is $10 from August 2008.

Human Genome Sciences Inc. (HGSI) - HGSI is expected to release key Lupus Drug data called BLISS-52 on Monday - July 20th. Keep an eye on this situation, could be a huge mover one way or the other based on the results.

Neah Power Systems, Inc. (NPWS.OB) - NPWS is looking to get listed on the AMEX stock exchange. If they get listed, the stock could see further upside.

American Intl Group, Inc. (AIG) - After breaking up through $13.65 resistance in the morning, AIG stock exploded to the upside but failed in the mid $14's. I am looking to jump into AIG again if it can close over $13.65.

Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ)
Daily Finan. Bull 3X Shs(ETF)(FAS) - FAS stock formed a double top at the $50 resistance level Wednesday and Thursday and made a lower high on Friday. At this point, it appears the FAS run could be over here and I am looking for opportunities to trade FAZ. I'd be a buyer of FAZ anywhere under $41 but would be placing a stop at $39.95. I would be a buyer of FAS anywhere under $40.

Citigroup Inc (C:NYSE) - Citigroup stock continues to hold $3, a very important support level once again. A close below $3 would take it back down to retest atleast $2.85 in my opinion. A close above $3.20 resistance would get me back into the stock. Check out my Citigroup Technical Analysis.

Bank of America Corp ( BAC ) - Bank of America Corporation reported solid earnings Friday but sold off. Technically, this stock is still a strong buy all the way down to $12. I continue to watch for a close over $13.93 which would probably take it up to $15. Doug Kass liked the earnings report which is a nice validation.

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) - General Electric also reported a solid earnings report but the stock is selling off. GE capital was weak but CNBC and MSNBC were strong units. GE stock is pulling back to the 10 day moving average at $11.43.

Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTIC) - CTIC continues to hold that $1.37 support level after closing back over it this week. As long as CTIC holds $1.22, I like the stock.

Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (HEB) - The next few trading days are going to be critical from a technical standpoint as the 10 day moving average is getting ready to break down through the 50 day moving average which is bearish. As long as HEB continues to close over the 50 day moving average it will be ok. Still waiting for an FDA decision on their CFS drug Ampligen.
