Last-Hour Rally Pares Stock Market Losses, and Google Leads Market Higher in Afterhours

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2010 Oct 15, 2010 - 03:55 AM GMT

By: Harry_Boxer


Best Financial Markets Analysis ArticleThe stock market indices suffered losses today, but a last hour sharp rally back brought them back from much deeper losses and closed down nearly unchanged today.

The day started out with a move down. The indices then bounced, made lower lows, and then had the best rally of the day until the last hour in the morning, reaching the highs for the session at about 10:30. They then stair-stepped their way lower all day, reaching the lows with about an hour to go at 2043.70 on the Nasdaq 100, but rallied 11 points on the NDX in the last hour. The S&P 500 rallied almost 7 points to close right at resistance.

Net on the day, the Dow was down just 1.51 at 11,094.57, the S&P 500 closed down 4.29 at 1173.81, and the Nasdaq 100 lost just 2.74 at 2054.51.

Advance-declines were negative by 17 to 12 on the New York Stock Exchange and by 14 to 12 on Nasdaq. Up/down volume was 2 to 1 negative on New York on volume of 1.1 billion. Nasdaq traded just under 2 billion and had about an 11 to 8 negative plurality.

However, in afterhours Google (GOOG) crushed earnings and was up 40 points, leading the NDX and the futures higher. We'll see what kind of follow-through we get tomorrow, particularly with Google earnings.

Charts of the Day:

Amtech Systems Inc. (ASYS), a stock we've mentioned several times in the last few months, is continuing to move forward. Today is gained 81 cents, or 4.6%, on 377,000, the biggest volume in a week and a half, which indicates to me that potentially it's going to move to the top of that channel around 21. It may get as high as 23 1/2, my secondary target. Technicals look great. On-Balance Volume, Money Stream, Balance of Power all indicate it will go higher.

HiSoft Technology International Ltd. (HSFT), a fairly recent IPO, exploded in August and has been stair-stepping its way higher with some pauses and consolidations. It's had four waves, and a fifth wave may be on the way. Looks like a move toward 31 1/2-32, my trading target, may be forthcoming.

Molycorp Inc. (MCP), another IPO, similar to the HSFT chart, has moved up steadily, backed off, came on again, made new highs, and now it has consolidated in a wedge formation over the last 4 weeks. It appears ready to make another move to try a run at the top of the channel, which could get it up toward the 39-40 range. Short-term trading target at 33.

Zagg Inc. (ZAGG) blew out earnings today and jumped 2.18, or 42 1/2%, right up to a key resistance zone at the 2009 highs. I'm looking for a move that takes this out and above that level and eventually gets up toward $10.

Reviewing our Watchboard: board was mixed. There were many gainers and losers. On the plus side today, leading the way was Zagg Inc. (ZAGG), on of our Charts of the Day, up 2.17 to 7.29, a big percentage gain there. Spreadtrum Communications Inc. (SPRD) was up 86 cents to 12.93, DAQQ New Energy Corp. (DQ) 1.23 at 13.94, Cree Inc. (CREE) 1.24 to 55.86, and Apple Inc. (AAPL) 2.17 to 302.60, trading at 303.25 in the aftermarket.

Other stocks of note: Isilon Systems Inc. (ISLN) jumped 59 cents to 27.22, JinkoSolar Holding Co. Ltd (JKS) 41 cents to 30.82, IDT Corp (IDT) 62 cents to 18.06, and Exact Sciences Corporation (EXAS), a recent swing trade pick, 52 cents to 8.91. Amtech Systems Inc. (ASYS) added 85 cents to 18.51.

In addition, the Direxion Daily Financial Bear 3X Shares (FAZ) jumped 47 cents to 12.58, and the iPath S&P 500VIX Short-Term Futures ETN (VXX) 50 cents to 14.70.

On the downside, Goldman Sachs (GS) lost 3.14 to 151.59 as financials were very weak today. Motricity Inc. (MOTR), after some very sharp recent gains reversed lower, down 2.82 to 17.18. Those were our only point-plus losers today.

Stepping back and reviewing the hourly chart patterns, the indices came down early, bounced, and then stair-stepped their way lower to new lows for the session, reaching the bottom of the 2-day down channels with an hour to go. That's where they bounced sharply into the close, closing near resistance at the declining topslines and lateral price resistance.

Again, it will be very interesting to see how they do tomorrow based on the afterhours news from Google.

Good trading!
