Something strange. BAC has been weak all day today and is down roughly 1% as all other banks are soaring.

Tomorrow and the rest of the week, a lot of news:

May 27 10:00 a.m. Existing Home Sales
May 28 08:30 a.m. Durable Goods Orders
May 28 08:30 a.m. Durables, Ex-Transport
May 28 08:30 a.m. Initial Claims
May 28 10:00 a.m. New Home Sales
May 28 11:00 a.m. Crude Inventories
May 29 08:30 a.m. GDP - Prelim.
May 29 08:30 a.m. GDP Deflator
May 29 09:45 a.m. Chicago PMI
May 29 09:55 a.m. Mich Sentiment-Rev

The most important I think are the: existing home sales, durable goods orders and new home sales.

Munching happily on the APPLE I bought well and sold today in spite of the insanity and lack of cohesion,it's still a decent feeling to pocket some profits instead of feeling like a schmuck.


This is some thought-provoking info:

www.bloomberg.com...

"Top-Graded Commercial Mortgage Debt May Face Cuts"

The highest-graded bonds backed by commercial mortgages may be cut by Standard & Poor’s, potentially rendering the securities ineligible for a $1 trillion U.S. program to jumpstart lending.

As much as 90 percent of so-called super senior commercial- mortgage backed bonds sold in 2007 may be affected as the ratings firm changes how it assesses the debt, New York-based S&P said today in a report.

The Dow was due for a bounce. Only 1.6 billion shares were traded and most of the recent big gaining days were on light volume so no surprise here. Is it just the permabears making excuses and pointing to the longer term negative news?

Ok folks..

We are going to test the 200 EMA again in the Nasdaq..

Remember what I said, it ususally spikes up, then goes back down and tests again.. if we can get the price and the EMA's to cross this time, well that is def a leading indicator regarding the DJIA and SP500 as well...



NASDAQ - with EMA's Drawn - Today in light blue color





I think everyone should be watching the $compq very closely.. we closed ABOVE the 200 EMA today... 25 more points higher and we will hopefully break out of this month long or so consolidation

It felt good I tell ya'!

Been a while and I didn't make it on a pharma-stock or anything else I have moral-objections to but rather on an old, trusted, lover,LOL!

It's just hard to get into that "it's okay to take it out now girl..." mode...need a bit more practice with that.

Quite a few...
I've been a Mac-girl for years and have always "believed" in the company and what they sell so over time,I've put money in that belief.
Let's just say I'm very pleased with my sale.

Single? Well....sort of most of the time on alternate Thursdays in the middle of the night always on Sunday.

You're very sweet but alas,probably much too young,LOL!
Notice I am NOT saying "inexperienced?"


Suspended Animation

The Dow Jones and the NDX gained a meager 8 points for the week. The
Thirty year interest rates TYX are sneaking up while the Volatility
index VIX has been hovering around 30. The market is settling in at
current levels.

Sector Action for the week was plus 30 with 26 Sectors up and 8 down.
Our Market Barometer topped out on May 5th at very overbought levels. So
far the Bulls have been able to hang around neutral territory. A shift
in this indicator or market breadth will signal which side of neutral we
are headed.

Rydex Alerts- Holding Bearish Russell.

Short term Trading indicator- A bit oversold.

Market Breadth - Now has a ‘double top’ but has not turned down.

INTERMEDIATE TERM TRENDS- Stuck. Tradewinds/momentum have rolled over.

INTERMEDIATE OSCILLATOR - Overbought Sell May 5th.

The day after Memorial Day usually marks the beginning of the ‘summer
rally’. This year there is still a week to ‘sell in May and stay away’.
Economic numbers continue to worsen -- there is a reason economics is
known as the ‘dismal science’. Recent market action resembles the random
walk of a drunken sailor.

Gold XAU- Number one in overall rank which is usually not good for the
overall market. We took nice profits in Kinross KGC and Goldcorp GG
recently. Gold stocks have been tradeable not investable over the last
year.

Disk Drive DDX- Moved up in price and rank taking the lead in
technology sectors.

Pharmaceutical DRG- This defensive sector has managed to attract some
value and yield investors looking for a bit of stability.

Ultra ETF’s- Bearish Financial SKF and Russell TWM are still the trading
vehicles of choice short and long.

Technology TXX - Google GOOG above or below $400 is the bellwether.

Housing HGX and Banking BKX- Banks BKX joined Housing in the lower
ranks. Amongst other items this means the banks and home builders are
not buying their own stocks at these levels (and may have sold them on
the surge)

LOVE the "drunken sailor" analogy..,

I am willing to look past all of that in lieu of gains in equities..

I mean its a give and take sort of thing

You do most of the giving of course.. but I clean a pool well if you have one of those, and I make super good grilled cheese
