Stock market reviews (weekly) after 2nd December, 2011.

On the one hand we saw co-operation between different Central banks to help different banks for easier access of funds, where on the other side S&P downgraded many financial firms and that must going to effect their borrowing cost. I am not sure whether it was a short-covering rally or there is something to cheer. But it is sure it will be wrong to think that Central banks effort is acting as a trigger for next rally.

Moody’s also revised its outlook on the US from stable to negative as congressional committee failed to agree deficit cuts. India’s GDP growth figure, Chinese PMI and South Korea’s industrial output figure were disturbing but Euro-zone manufacturing figure and US employment report were better. Chinese reserve ratio cut was better indication, which market needs these days.

Stock market (Index) forecast for Coming week

Though most of the indexes are showing some type of bullish pattern formation and it will be clear in coming days, but technical indicators are still not supporting that bullish pattern. I am not sure whether there will be any change in macro situation through that Central bank effort. Let see what market gets after 5th December, 2011. As I told in past week that last two December showed that market becomes positive in this period of year, so history may repeat again !

DOW’s move from 11600 to 12200 was very nice, though I told about this level but I did not expect that it will be so quick. Now 12400–12500 is its next immediate target, if this type of sentiment stays then it can easily cross this level. In fact it has formed a bullish pattern though it is not clear, but it permits DOW to go much higher levels. On the other hand some of the technical indicators are saying that DOW is short-term over-bought condition and its last two day’s closings were not good. If it drops from here then it has support around 11800.
During last few weeks I repeatedly told that DAX is forming a bullish pattern, now if it breaks 6400 level then it can easily act on that pattern. Last two days closing was not good but unless it drops below 5200, I am confident about the up move.
Shanghai Composite decoupled form rest of the stock indexes this week. It was trying to test crucial 2300 level which I told last week, if it breaks that then it can go further lower levels. In the upside it has resistance at 2500 – 2550 levels.
Last week I was very disappointed with BOVESPA’s performance but since it unable to go below 55000, so the bullish pattern is still on for it. Now if the sentiment around the world stays on, then it can easily cross 59000 level. In the downside if it drops below 52000–53000 then it will negate the pattern.
Look like STRAITS TIME is going in the same direction which I predicted during last few week. It got support far above 2600 level and if things continue then it will try to test 2900 in coming days. In the downside if it breaks 2500-2530 level then it can drop more.

Reports due in coming days (from US)

Monday, 5th December, 2011 – Factory Orders, ISM Manufacturing Index.

Wednesday, 7th December, 2011 – Consumer Credit

Coming European summit is very important. It is hard to say that whether ECB is going to use its fund for those problematic countries or it is going to help through IMF!  Whatever it is, one thing is sure that help is needed; at it needs quickly so that it becomes too late. Unless the funding problem in Euro-area is getting any solution, I am not going to believe that this is a beginning of a new ………….

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.
