The Week Ahead In Stock Market (based on the article)


  • "The stock market started the week under a cloud based on increased global tensions and holidays in the US and overseas. Heading into the last trading day before the Easter holiday stocks looked week technically but there were many signs based on my analysis that meant the risk was too high for new short positions."
  • "Those on the short side were likely surprised by last Monday's strong performance. They may have felt better when the Dow Industrials dropped sharply last Wednesday in reaction to the weak earnings from IBM, Goldman Sachs and Johnson & Johnson. The shorts were squeezed once again on Thursday  as stocks had their best day since March."
  • "The calendar is full this week with the Chicago National Activity Index and Dallas Fed Manufacturing Survey on Monday. Then on Tuesday we have the S&P Corelogic Case-Shiller HPI, New Home Sales, Consumer Confidence and the Richmond Fed Manufacturing Index."
  • "On Thursday we get the Durable Goods orders and Pending Home Sales Index followed on Friday by the GDP,  Employment Cost Index, Chicago PMI and Consumer Sentiment."

French Election: intra-day breakout with the bullish reversal; 1.09 resistance is the key (based on the article)

Daily H4 intra-day price broke Ichimoku cloud to above for the breakout with the bullish reversal: the price is testing 1.0906 resistance level for the bullish trend to be continuing.


  • "The EUR/USD currency pair looked set to open around two cents higher at near $1.09 this Sunday night - around about a 5-month high. And, there could be some “pretty big volatility and wider-than-usual bid-ask spreads” at times. For most of the past week the euro has traded at a touch above 1.07, but rose late today towards the 1.09 mark."
  • "It might not hold those gains for long but no nightmare scenario should be worth about 1-2%,” he ventured. Added to that any exuberance in the markets is likely to be tempered by a number of factors."
