Egypt Resolves... Stock Market Resilient...

Stock-Markets / Stock Markets 2011 Feb 12, 2011 - 06:35 AM GMT

By: Jack_Steiman


Democracy. The people of Egypt were fighting to remove autocratic leadership and create democracy for themselves. The market had been somewhat shaken recently over rioting in the streets. It was a reminder of the recent past riots when we also had to deal with the flash crash. The market didn't like all that rioting in the streets not too long ago, and was clearly worried a bit that this could happen again. It should not happen as President Mubarak has stepped down.

That headache is now out of the way and any bad news that gets resolved in a positive way can only be good news for the bulls and bad news for the bears. The market is dealing with bad news in the way that all bull markets do, and that is to put it aside and play spin doctor with it. Such was the case with the old leadership stock in Cisco Systems, Inc. (CSCO). This baby used to move markets in a huge way, but it no longer seems to have any influence whatsoever. A real positive change of character as new leadership has come along and taken over.

That is a necessary part of the evolution of all bull markets. Bad news is now being ignored, with the market clearly focusing on the overall earnings picture, which remains solid for sure. One after the other is coming out with good news. Although there are always the losers in the stock world, the majority is doing quite well, and some are absolutely blowing the cover off the ball. As long as that continues, it will be hard to kill this beast of a bull.

Of course, the other main factor that goes in to a bull market is having the fed on your side. No one will deny that the fed is on the side of this stock market. It wants Wall Street to thrive which, in turn, will help Main Street thrive as well. If Main Street is thriving it keeps the economy humming. It seems almost a guarantee that fed Bernanke will keep rates where they are for a long time to come. It's also quite likely that printing press Ben will keep those machines on 24/7 by 365 days. That money has to go somewhere, and it's likely that money will go in to the stock market over time, especially if things hold up as more and more folks will get nervous about missing the good times.

To me, it seems as though there's nothing printing press Ben won't do to keep this bull moving along. Thus, you have to remember to never fight him and go along with everything even if you think morally what he's doing is wrong for the bigger picture. I hate what he's doing bigger picture, but my job is to recognize market direction. That direction is still higher, although there will always be pullback's along the way, of course.

We closed approximately 2% below the 2007 highs at 2060 on the Nasdaq. It seems to want to go up and test there now, but no guarantees, of course. If we do get there, I believe that's where this market will start to struggle. Long-term resistance areas are tough to get through when you're extremely overbought, which we would be if we get that high. Always computer related selling at major areas of long-term resistance, thus, it would be best to lighten up as we get closer to that level.

2755 is now solid support or the back test of the trend line breakout. The further away we get from it the more secure that area will be for the bulls. It's already acting as good support, so if we can get up near 2860 it will become stronger support still. It would be best to test back near there at some point so we can unwind and get far more aggressive. However, we have plenty of scratch in the game now, so let's hope we can work our way towards Nasdaq 2860.

For months, all we heard about was how bad the financials were and how they wouldn't be recovering any time soon. Quietly, it seems as if things aren't talked about much any more for this group of stocks. They continue to move higher on a two-steps-up, one-step-back pattern. The fact that they're doing well no longer seems to surprise anyone. A lot of very prominent people in the world of fundamentals have been telling us how these stocks would be dead for a long time and go much lower.

They are now strangely quiet about those dire forecasts. Clearly, the masses got too bearish on this group, and the trade was apparently full. Once it stopped working to the down side the bears seemed to have given up and covered their positions. Lots of fuel available for upside action. As long as the financials continue bullish so will this market and now, to bolster the look of things, there are many gap ups in the patterns there to keep the bears at bay.

Stay with the long side trade, folks, until we get a true sell signal. For now, that's nowhere in sight. With bad news being ignored for the most part, stick with the reality that earnings are good and that printing press Ben is still printing daily. This combination bodes well for a while, knowing that to come along will be the usual set of pullback's along the way.

Do something nice for someone just because you can, and play with a child if you get the chance this weekend. True life perspective will certainly come your way.
