Dow Jones Analysis 7/17/09 Stock Market Analysis

Dow Jones Chart - The following is Technical Analysis for the Dow Jones ( DJIA ) for 7/17/09

Dow Jones Industrial Average ($DJI) Support & Resistance Levels - July 17, 2009

Resistance Levels: 8878, 9000

Support Levels: 8600, 8475, 8331, 8250

The Dow Jones exploded higher on some comments out of Nouriel Rubini which were taken out of context by several news outlets. Tomorrow will be interesting because we get several Dow component earnings in the morning. I feel we are due for a pullback to atleast the 50 day moving average at 8475 which I would be a buyer of. As long as we hold 8400 on a closing basis, I am bullish. Keep an eye on 8878 on the upside as well...if we do break through and close above that, we will run up and possibly break 9000...

The Dow Jones Industrial Average closed at 8712 on 7/16/09, as the stock market exploded higher once again on better then expected earnings out of JPMorgan Chase & Co. (NYSE:JPM) as well as Nouriel Roubini " Dr. Doom " out stating that the worst of the recession is now OVER and the recession could be over by the end of the year. This may be the first bullish statement out from Roubini and the stock market exploded higher after the headline crossed. The Dow Jones Futures started the day mixed and the stock market was flat to down most of the day but surged on the Nouriel Roubini comment right after 1pm EST. Key resistance levels would be S&P 500 at 950 and The Dow Jones testing 8878.

Nouriel Roubini was out in afterhours stating that his words were taken out of context by several news outlets. Roubini states that nothing has changed as far as his forecast.

Tonight we will have earnings out of International Business Machines Corp. ( NYSE:IBM) and Google Inc ( NASDAQ:GOOG). I expect IBM to do well but am not sure about Google. We will also get earnings tomorrow out of GE, BAC, and Citigroup.

Today's hottest sector was Transportation. Stocks such as FedEx Corporation (FDX) - United Parcel Service, Inc. (UPS) and Greenbrier Companies (GBX) were on fire!

The 2nd best sector was Capital Goods. Stocks such as Smith & Wesson Holding Corp. (SWHC) - Esterline Technologies Corp. (ESL) and China Yuchai International Limited (CYD) were bright spots in that sector.

Discuss Stocks -

Stocks to Watch - 7/17/09 - Stock Market Ideas

Nouriel Roubini's

Human Genome Sciences Inc. (HGSI) - HGSI stock was on fire Thursday after Leerink Swann hosted a call with MEDACorp consultants who were cautiously optimistic on HGSI's upcoming BLISS-52 data expected on Monday - July 20, 2009 ( ). This is something to keep an eye on because if the Lupus drug data is good, HGSI will have additional upside. Here is an another article - Odds stacked against Human Genome's lupus drug.

STEC, Inc. (STEC) - Stec inks supply deal for flash drives; stock soars - STEC has been one of the hottest stocks in 2009 so far. The stock is in uncharted territory because it keeps breaking to new highs. I would be a buyer on pullbacks to the low $20's if you get another chance.

Angiotech Pharmaceuticals, Inc. (ANPI) - ANPI stock surged on Thursday afternoon as the company received FDA Approval. Angiotech Pharmaceuticals announces FDA approval of TAXUS(R) Liberte(R) Long Stent. ANPI stock has major resistance at $2 but if it can close over that, a retest of the $2.93 high could be ahead.

Coal Stocks - Patriot Coal Corporation (PCX) & James River Coal Co. (JRCC) were upgraded by JP Morgan Thursday morning. Keep an eye on these coal stocks as well as Bucyrus International Inc. (BUCY) - Peabody Energy Corp. (BTU) - Massey Energy Co. (MEE). These coal stocks have all had nice pullbacks and could be getting ready to resume their uptrend's.

Bakken Shale - Three Forks Oil Zone - Brigham Exploration Co. (BEXP) announced Wednesday that one of their wells in the Sanish - Three Forks zone was hitting over 2,000 barrels of Oil Equivalent per day. This was huge news and I expect buyers to continue to buy BEXP stock on dips. Other companies have also been going up because of this news. Keep an eye on Continental Resources Inc. (CLR) - Whiting Petroleum Corp. (WLL) - XTO Energy Inc. (XTO) - Kodiak Oil & Gas Corp. (KOG) - St. Mary Land & Exploration Co. (SM) - Newfield Exploration Co. (NFX) all which have exposure to the Three Forks Oil Area in North Dakota. I personally own CLR

American Intl Group, Inc. (AIG) - AIG stock broke down through the support are of $13.65 on Thursday which resulted in a huge drop. Since the plunge, AIG has been struggling to get back above $13. I would only be buying AIG Friday if it breaks back above $13.65. AIG now has support at $12 and then down to $11. No telling which direction AIG will head next, but I am using $13.65 as a resistance level.

Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ)
Daily Finan. Bull 3X Shs(ETF)(FAS) - FAS stock had a pullback Thursday after failing at near $50 on Wednesday. Tomorrow we get earnings out of Citigroup and Bank of America which will really move both the FAS and FAZ. If and when FAS breaks up through $50, I will wait for FAS to run out of gas and then jump into FAZ for a trade. I will do this when FAS is trading over $50...stalls, and then begins to break down through the lows of the day ( FAZ would be breaking the highs of the day ). Pullbacks below $40 for FAS are now a strong buy going forward.

Citigroup Inc (C:NYSE) - Citigroup stock held $3 on Thursday and will be reporting earnings tomorrow. Check out my Citigroup Technical Analysis.

Bank of America Corp ( BAC ) - Bank of America Corporation continues to perform strongly after closing over the 200 day moving average which sparked a long term buy signal. I don't expect BAC stock to ever trade below $10 again. Earnings are due out tomorrow in which B of A is expected to report a profit of $0.24 cents per share. Pullbacks to $12 or below are a strong buy.

General Electric Company (NYSE:GE) - GE reports earnings Friday - expect $0.23 per share in earnings and the stock to be a big mover on way or the other.

Cell Therapeutics, Inc. (CTIC) - CTIC traded back above $1.37 on Wednesday, this is bullish but we need to see a pick up in volume for the stock to really break out again. As you already know, I love CTIC as long as it holds $1.22.

Hemispherx Biopharma, Inc. (HEB) - HEB stock continues to flatline as investors and traders wait for an FDA decision on their CFS drug, Ampligen. I want to buy this stock if they do receive Approval but not before the decision.

Stocks I am willing to buy on a Dip

Visa Inc. (NYSE: V) - $58
MasterCard (MA) - $155
Apple (AAPL) - $120

Citigroup Inc C Stock 7/16/09 July 16, 2009

Citigroup Stock Chart - The following is a little Citigroup Inc. ( C ) stock technical analysis for July 16, 2009

Citigroup Inc (C:NYSE) Support & Resistance Levels - 7/16/09

Resistance Levels: $3.20, $3.25, $3.32, $3.50

Support Levels: $3, $2.85, $2.55, $2.40, $2.25

Discuss Stocks -

Citigroup stock has been failing around $3.20 after a nice bounce from oversold conditions. From this point on, support at $3 must hold or the risks to retesting $2.85 and down to $2.55 are high. If you are thinking about taking a long position, wait for a close over the 50 day moving average ( currently $3.32 ) which would trigger a buy signal technically.A close below $2.55 at any time would be very bearish and I think you could see a retest of $2.25 down to $2.00. I am personally waiting for Citigroup to close over $4 before I buy the stock....a close over $4 would be for a good fundamental reason and I think C stock could then run to $5-$6 For more Technical Analysis - Go Here
