Equity Index Update

Equity Index UpdateSocialTwist Tell-a-Friend

This article and accompanying charts were posted on Thursday March 6, 2008 at 0830 CST in our SuperPlatinum Virtual Trading Room.

The index markets appear to be set for another volatile session as news out of MER, FNM and TMA have knocked the markets substantially from overnight highs. On the positive side of the ledger, WMT boosted their dividend and announced slightly better than anticipated monthly sales figures. Currently, the SPH is trading at 1328.50, -7.00 on the session and in the heart of yesterday’s final hour choppy trading zone. Considering that the Employment reading will be tomorrow morning, one has to wonder if the market will have enough “juice” to move substantially in either direction. However, if the news cycle continues to deteriorate and the dollar freefalls, anything can happen.

I have included several charts today…among them is a chart with daily closes in the SP Cash. It is worth noting that we are, for all intents and purposes, locked in a range between the January closing low of 1310.50 and the Feb High of 1392. However, the substantial portion of the settlements in the index has occurred between 1360 and 1335. The situation now is this…is we building a base from which to move higher or a topping base from which to move lower?
