Stock Investing and Stock Trading - November 15, 2010:

As we write this note, the SP500 stock market index is around 1210. (SPY EFT at 121).

Last Friday the post below indicated that a stock market bounce might be around the corner, and some reasons for the analysis were given. The stock market is currently in the green, and it gaped up in the morning. The bounce is not confirmed yet, as we need to see the market trade above the high of the previous day. It is likely that this would not happen until tomorrow. Since the stock market has been selling off last week, it is not unrealistic that a retreat happens this afternoon to close the gap. A useful question would be whether (under the scenario of a retreat this afternoon) the market would rally afterward to close above today's open, which would positions it well for a bounce higher in tomorrow's stock trading session.

In addition, we note that the low of Friday is not broken, which is a good thing. At the same time, since the higher of yesterday is not breached either, it may make it susceptible to selling pressure. If the market does not breach the low of Friday, and if it does not move higher to break yesterday's high which is less likely, we would have an inside trading day. Inside trading days are rare, but it is what we expect currently.

Below is a copy of last Friday's post, and a list of stocks that are trading higher and are liquid, which can be a place where big smart money operates if it is trying to anticipate a bounce up in stocks.

"Stock Investing and Stock Trading - November 12, 2010:

On the eve of November 8, 2010 when the SP 500 stock market index was trading at close to 1230 (SPY EFT near 123), we wrote that stocks were vulnerable to a retreat and that it is not impossible that the market retreats 40 points. As we prepare this post, the retreat is in the 30s point range. The market is therefore less than 10 points from the estimated retreat. A 10 points in SP500 index is one dollar in the SPY EFT stock, and is less than 1% of the SPX stock market index value.

If the market rises, there appears currently to be a limit on an eventual bounce as those who bought stock at higher price levels might become anxious to sell their stocks after experiencing stock losses, in addition to other potential stock sellers who held their stock positions, and may now realize that the most recent highs in the stock market may have been good prices to lock gains on some of their stock holdings.

On November 8 post, the estimated upside was limited to only 20 points on the SP500 stock market index, which was low compared to the estimated downside risk of 40 points in the SP500 stock market index.

We have also been writing about the danger that of a rising US dollar could have on the stock market It turned out that the stock market have finally felt the effect of the rising dollar. This week retreat is therefore not surprising.

However, the US dollar weakened between last evening to today currency trading session, and this might coincide with a stabilization in the stock market, and also a stablization in the recent rise of the US dollar. "
