Last Week Low: 1131.07
Last Week High: 1195.86
We had a bear market rally in the begining of the week, renewed euro zone fears and poor performance from banking sector pushed the index towards south as week progress.
If you are a long term conservative investors, it is the time to liquidate all of your long position US treasuriesand consider shorting US Treasuries gradually in the coming weeks with a ladder of order.
The collapse in US Treasury prices are inevitable since even with QE3, Fed will start buying only when the treasury prices are low and front running the Fed is not a good strategy in investment.
Currently dollar is the only safe heaven for long term conservative investors.
For Speculators and Intraday Players - Market may retest its next support level
The debt talks, earning season and on going crisis from Euro Zone increased the volatility. Still fundamentally the US market is very week due to unemployment and slumping house prices along with US debt downgrade. Always fundamental wins in the long run.
As we retested this support level 1100+ a couple of times, it is most likely the bears will control the market in the coming weeks to take it below 1100 that would be 1036.19 set on Oct 30, 2009.
