Stock market review (weekly) after 20th January, 2012.

Market is neglecting all those negative things (like S&P downgrades) and focusing more on positive sides (like Greek debt talk).

Many Emerging countries are facing 3 to 4 positive weekly closings, as some are seeing inflows of money from outside.

 Stock market forecast for coming week.

As I said in past, I am still seeing a line of demarcation between stock indexes. Greek debt talk and Fed FOMC meetings are very important for market for future actions. One thing is sure that most of the Stock indexes are heavily overbought so one side is quite open. I don’t think early days of the coming week will be great for buying and holding. And that currency market connection, which I told in last week, is still open.

During last few months I was telling that DOW is making a bullish pattern, so now we are getting that result. Last week I was expecting DOW to test 12600 levels after a little correction but it did not correct at all. Dow is again trying to test higher levels in spite of being in overbought position. Now it has a good resistance at 12800 levels. On the other hand it has good support at around 12400 and then at 12200.
So DAX is trying to break that 6200 level but I want to see some concrete steps from here so that it can prove its bullish pattern which I was saying during last few months. Now its resistance is at 6800 and support is at 5800. DAX has a chance to test even 7200 level but it is quite a big expectation for now and it is also in overbought condition. Germany is in better condition than US, therefore I do not know whether DAX is going to follow DOW and will test higher levels in spite of over-bought condition.  
So Shanghai Composite got the support at 2200, which I told last week. But still it is short-term overbought condition. So that 2200 and 2100 support level is still intact. But considering the long-term chart, I think it can still go for more, but may be after a little correction.
During couple of month BOEVESPA is following a trend. It has a good resistance at 64000 but I do not think it will go up to that level, considering the trend. It is too much overbought and it can correct at any moment. But as it is making higher highs and higher lows, so if it respect that trend then it may get support above 56000. But if it breaks that then it can drop more.
In spite of S&P downgrade I suspected that Straits TIME may test 2850 level and it just did that. So now the crucial level is 2900, which I was telling during last few weeks. I do not know whether it is going to achieve that in coming days, but it is sure that if it goes for it then it has a chance to test much higher levels, may be up to 3200. In the downside it has immediate support at 2750, which it may test again in coming week if any bad days come. Its next support is at 2720, but if major selling happens then it can drop more.

Reports due in coming days (from US)

Monday, 23rd January, 2011 – US T-bill Auction

Tuesday, 24th January, 2011 – Fed’s FOMC Meeting

Wednesday, 25th January, 2012 – Pending Home Sales, FOMC Announcement.

Thursday, 26th January, 2012 – Unemployment Claims, Durable Good Orders, New Home Sales, Leading Economic Indicators.

Friday, 27th January, 2012 – 4 Quarter GDP Growth, Consumer Sentiment.

Some positives in this moment are drop in cost of dollar funding in money market, outcomes of Greek debt talk and some better reports from US. Where as negatives are slowing Chinese economy, cut in growth expectation figure of Germany for 2012. On the other hand many Emerging countries are unable to control inflation rate due fear of drop in growth figures.  If I am not wrong, World Bank also warned developing countries about slowing growth. 

I do not know whether Fed is going to announce a surprise package (QE-3) in its meeting of coming week, but as I said in past that Emerging nation may not gain much from that considering the past. But if something comes we may see some great days for indexes like DOW.

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.
