Weekly Stock & Metal market reviews after 7th October, 2011.

Are these rating agencies read the matter fully or they just …………..  !    As we know in past, S&P made a problem in the time of downgrading US. And now when ECB is telling about financing those Banks, then what these agencies are trying to do by downgrading ?  Where they were in past ?  Look like these Rating Agencies are preparing a list of other countries who will be next after the close of Greek episode.  Is it Portugal ?

In spite of better payrolls report, Stock markets in US dropped in the last day due to that Fitch matter related to Italy & Spain.

7th-Oct, 2011


Stock markets faced some correction in the initial day of the week after that Greek news that it would not received bail-out loan in this month. Few weeks ago I read that, time limit is mid October for Greece but now it rises to November.  But later markets recovered on the news of loans to banks by ECB and on the expectation that leader will ease the debt crisis. BoE will inject liquidity but some are trying to relate the problem with EU area. I think lower than expected GDP figure was really a problem for them and in coming future they may take more steps. Most of the reports from Euro-area were not good this week.

Metal Market

Look like Nymex Crude (Nov) is ready for another round of correction, it can only avoid that by breaking $90 level in the upside. Same is also true for Brent (Nov), for it the level is $114 in the upside. I said in past that I don’t like Natural Gas’s moves and it can correct more, this week it just proved that. Now it may move flat in coming days but if it tries to rise from here then it will be limited.
Gold was flat this week, I think it is taking some rest for another move. Gold will go up in future but before that it may correct little bit more, may be around $1500 level. Now Silver may test $30 level in the downside. Look like for both Gold and Silver, little more corrections are due. Copper is bouncing back from $3.00 level. I don’t know the reason behind this move but in coming days, it may fill the gap it created.

Stock market forecast for Coming week

Basically stock markets are in a position where by it is very hard to predict for sure that which way markets may go from here. But due to Fitch ratings in the initial day of the coming week, we may see some corrections.
As I said in last week DOW is moving in the same range of 10500-11200. The bearish pattern which I talked during few weeks showed some of it’s effect. That not means that market will rise from here, it may rise but for some strong move it needs to break 11800 level convincingly. Last day’s move was not good, if it drops then it may test 10800 level. I would like to see DOW to break that 10500-11200 range first. So the moves which is important, 11200-11800 in the upside and 10800-10500 in the downside.
I was expecting that DAX may test lower levels (5350) in the early days of the week, but it drops further. But as I said it was trying to test higher levels. I don’t like last day’s figure, unless it breaks 6000 level in the upside, it will be wrong to expect any big move, at least in the initial days of the coming week. Chart pattern says that there is a chance of going in higher levels (obviously if it breaks 5800 level.) but economic situations don’t permit that. On the downside if it breaks level around 5000, then it can drop more.
Brazilian BOVESPA’s move was not good, it is close to break crucial level of 50000. It may test 54000 level in the upside but chance of drop is more.
KLSE can go to test higher levels but it may test 1360 level before that. As I said in last week, that on the upside unless it breaks 1450, I don’t expect any new move from it.

Reports due in coming days

Wednesday, 12th October, 2011 –  FOMC minutes
Thursday, 13th October,2011 – Unemployment Claims, US Trade Deficit.
 Friday, 14th October 2011 –  Retail Sales, Consumer Sentiment.

I don’t want to go into the analysis of payroll reports, US needs more, these kind of reports. But question is how long these things can delay the recession ?  As we can see Goldman Sachs lowered global growth forecast.
No one knows for sure that what is going around. Now look like there is a matter that completely ends on Greece. If Greece defaults, then a recession will spread in different parts of the world, especially it can even drag down US. Now if anyone thinks about protecting himself by taking shelter in Emerging nations, they must remember that, their growth will also drop.

DAX forecast for coming week ended 15th March, 2013.

This week was very good for Dax, though it is getting resistance at 8100 range. Now it has a chance to test downside again. I think even if Dax tests lower levels, it has more chance to bounce back from around 7800 range and therefore it will again test upside.

On the other hand if it shows flat movements around 8000 range in initial days of the coming week then there is a chance that it may take a decisive call in later days. Considering the recent trends it has the chance to test higher levels may be around 8200 but that will be a very aggressive call after taking in to account the movement from last December. I will worry about the downside when Dax will be testing levels below 7600 ranges.

Fed’s rate hike Vs Sovereign rating up gradation

Financial market is very much worried about the rate hike in US, probably this is going to come in coming December. But I think that is not going to change much of the things. Even Fed hikes rate in December it will be not so much, because we are forgetting one thing that interest rate in US is around zero so even they hike rate by 0.25-50% basis points (at most) in this year that will not be enough cause for Dollars to change their locations around the world especially markets have already discounted this coming rate hike in US.

A new disaster is coming in EU banking sector, whom to blame, big Audit firms!

First I was thinking what should be the title of this posting? Will it be good if I write that big audit firms set the time for EU bank collapse! If someone is thinking that financial crisis is over then think twice because the coming EU banking crisis is no way less than 2008 financial crisis. The time bomb will explode at some point of time in future, the time has not yet set for it. In that tsunami, forget about the smaller if any major banks collapse then I will not be surprise.
