Weekly Financial Markets Review - More weakness expected this week

Stock-Markets / Financial Markets Mar 18, 2007 - 07:26 PM GMT

Stock-Markets

The corrective stock market rally continued into Monday with targets of 50% of the decline from the highs. The Dow hitting 12,350 on Monday and the FTSE enjoying a morning rally on Tuesday to just shy of 6280. Tuesday evenings article - The Corrective Rally is over as the Stock Markets tumble on more Subprime bad news Summarised targets for the current down leg as follows -

FTSE 100
The FTSE 100 is targeting 6000, there is a strong probability of the FTSE holding 6000 (5990 low). Further downside appears limited in the immediate down swing.


Dow Jones
Dow Jones is targeting a down swing to between 11,650 and 11,750.

The FTSE performed right on cue, falling and hitting 6000 and then bouncing exactly as expected. The Dow Jones did decline below the previous lows, but then rebounded above 12,000 to end the week at 12,110.

The expectation still remains for the down leg to continue with further weakness expected especially in the Dow Jones towards its target of 11,750. For the FTSE I will be looking to see if it is able to stablise above 6000, even if new lows for the move are seen in the Dow Jones. However should 6000 fail, the FTSE is heavily supported in the region 6000 to 5900 so downside appears very limited at the moment.

Looking further out, the action to date, increasingly does not signify an imminent crash, so once the bottoms have been confirmed the stock markets could stage a strong rally into April.

Back to the week that was -
