Stock market review (weekly) after 2nd March, 2012.

Market has ignored S&P and it also did not react much on LTRO. In US market, Dow is touching 13000 level though it couldn’t stay there. But things are little different for S&P 500.

Shanghai composite is facing 8 strait positive weeks, which is quite outstanding and their recent manufacturing report also supports that. Some of the Emerging markets are performing better and economic reports are making things worse for some of these nations.



Stock market forecast for coming week.

I am repeating the same line that, major challenge for stock indexes in coming days will be higher Oil prices. Most of the markets are in over-bought level but still they are showing chances of breaking specific levels in the upside. I don’t know whether we are going to see 14000 level for DOW because USD is not showing us that type of bullish sentiment, neither it is showing any sell-off trend. So market is in typical point, probably we have to consider different matters to get any conclusion.

Let's talk about different stock indexes.

Dow Jones Industrial Average (Dow Jones forecast for coming week ended 2nd March, 2012.)


German Dax (Dax forecast for coming week ended 2nd March, 2012. - blog*spot)


In spite of being in overbought condition, BOVESPA is testing around 68000 level. Like past, it has the arsenal to test 69000 level. But then it will be in too much overbought condition. Now 66000 is its initial support level and if things go wrong then it can test 63000 and then it has support below 60000.
Shanghai Composite is again trying to test 2500 level. I think even if it goes past 2500 level it will find tough resistances for more upside movements. In the downside for any bad news it may retest 2350 level.
Straits TIMES is again trying higher levels, comparing to the Dow and Dax it is cheaper. So if global sentiment becomes positive then it will test 3100 level. In the contrary if it breaks 2950 then it will make a short-term bearish pattern, which can take it to around 2860 level.


Reports due in coming days (from US)

Monday, 5th March, 2012 – Factory Orders, ISM Non-Mfg Index.

Wednesday, 7th March, 2012 – ADP Jobs Report, Productivity.

Thursday, 8th March, 2012 – Unemployment Claims

Friday, 9th March, 2012 – Monthly Employment Report


Euro zone debt crisis is gradually faded down, the huge liquidity which different banks are getting from ECB are supposed to be drained in the economy. But I don’t think it is the only purpose of the easy liquidity. Because if it is true then where from this huge inflows are coming into equity market in recent days!  If we think about recent past, then we can remember that stock and bond markets have rallied since ECB’s first 3year loan.

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.
