Dow Jones Analysis 6/18/09 Stock Market Analysis

The following is Technical Analysis for the Dow Jones ( DJIA ) for 6/18/09

Dow Jones Industrial Average Support & Resistance Levels - June 18, 2009

Resistance Levels: 8600, 8878, 9000

Support Levels: 8500, 8343, 8250

The Dow Jones closed below the 8500 support level Wednesday so the caution flags have been raised on my trading desk. We may trade around this level for a little bit but I think we will ultimately retest the 50 day moving average in the coming weeks. Also, keep an eye on the 10 day moving average....if it breaks back down below the 200 day moving average the volatility will spike in the short term. For More Technical Analysis - Go Here

Wednesday, during regular trading hours, there were many stocks that continued to break out to the upside. Below is a list of stocks that are worth watching for June 18, 2009. Also, check out the Biggest Stock Gainers of the Day. You can also find previous stocks to buy reports - Right Here

Stocks to Watch - 6/18/09 - Stock Market Ideas

Stock Market: Why has the stock market been selling off this week? We are getting some weaker guidance from companies like Best Buy Co. Inc. (BBY) and FedEx Corporation (FDX). Also, we have broken down slightly on a technical basis. Check out some of my Dow Jones technical analysis. The 10 day moving average could potentially break back down through the 200 day moving average...this would be bearish for the short term. If the Dow Jones gets back to the 50 day moving average and fails, we will have some major problems and i'd expect the Volatility Index ( VIX ) to spike even more. Currently, the VIX is 31.50.

Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ)
Daily Finan. Bull 3X Shs(ETF)(FAS) - FAS stock took a beating Wednesday morning but bounced back during the afternoon. If FAS can break above the high of the day ( $9.23 ) is will run even further. I took a shot on FAS in the morning and sold half at $8.92 early and then sold the other half after the Obama speech at $9.12. As for the FAZ, if we have another huge spike higher in FAS, I will jump into the FAZ when FAS is near $10. FAS now has support at $8.80 and $8.60.

Citigroup Inc (C:NYSE) - Citigroup stock fell to $3.00 on Wednesday and then bounced back to the $3.20 area. Previous support levels of $3.26 and $3.32 will now become areas of resistance and traders who were caught at those levels or higher will be inclined to sell. All eyes will be on the next earnings report in July.

Bank of America Corporation (BAC:NYSE) - Bank of America stock hit support of $12 on Wednesday and then reversed to break the high of the day. This is very bullish action and the buy the dip strategy is still good for BAC.

Wells Fargo & Company (NYSE:WFC) - Still looking for $22 on WFC to jump in, this was a stock pick from Guy Adami on Fast Money about a month ago. Guy said a great entry point would be to get in Wells Fargo around $22.

Research In Motion Ltd. (RIMM) - Keep an eye out for RIMM earnings 6/18/09 after the bell. RIMM is expected to earn $0.96 cents for the quarter.

Ford Motor Company (F) - Ford had a great reversal on Wednesday. Ford broke support of $5.50, tanked to $5.30, and then started climbing. I will either try to buy under $5 or wait for Ford to get back above $6. Right now, it is in no mans land. The company has a bright future ahead!

Jazz Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (JAZZ) - JAZZ stock was one of the most volatile stocks on Wednesday. Shares of JAZZ sold off to $3.04 and then exploded higher around 1pm EST to hit $4.15. I continue to monitor JAZZ stock because I still think it is worth trading. $3 has become solid support.

Antigenics' QS-21 Adjuvant Enters Pivotal Phase 3 Clinical Trial of GlaxoSmithKline's Malaria Vaccine

June 17, 2009 - Antigenics Inc. (NASDAQ: AGEN) today announced that GlaxoSmithKline (GSK) has launched a Phase 3 study with the world’s most clinically-advanced malaria vaccine, RTS,S, which contains Antigenics’ QS-21 Stimulon® adjuvant

Under the terms of the license and supply agreements announced in July 2006, GSK will make payments contingent upon successful milestone achievements, and will pay royalties to Antigenics on net sales for a period of at least 10 years after first commercial sale.
