  • Intraday Market Notes: Is The Market Ready To Reverse? -- Sept. 28 10 comments
    Sep 28, 2012 4:19 PM | about stocks: CORN, GRU

    4:00 pm ET: Results of Spanish bank stress tests combined with weak domestic economic numbers sank the market on open. The major averages did recover some ground but began giving it right back as traders seemed reluctant to stay long over the weekend. The overall tone could be changing from bullish to bearish as the DTX appears that it might close below 490. Adding another nail to the bull coffin is the VIX where the preferred direction now appears to be up (a negative sign). A continuation in both of these trends would be a sign that the bears are taking over.

    The big news today in commodities was that wheat and corn inventories are lower than expected. Really??? With the most severe drought in years, this was big news? Hard to believe, but there it is. The news boosted the corn etf (NYSEARCA:CORN) and the grain etf (NYSEARCA:GRU) which had been sliding. Both gained were up as much as 6% in intraday trading. The question now is whether this jump is the start of a new rally or just a speed bump in the continuing downward slide.

    Not much else is happening. Have a good weekend!

    Note to Subscribers: There is one new Stock Darling and five new Channeling Stocks.

    The bears have all been killed off...[IMG]http://bit.ly/PtbciW[/IMG]

     

    No downward movement allowed until after the first of the year. Earnings will meet lowered expectations, European can kicking, foregone US elections, fiscal cliff can kicking (steel toed boots required), QEternity...etc, will all tend to keep the market flat until the air comes out from under Ben's helicopter blades. IMO.

     

    So, who's your favorite Packer? Claymaker... BJ...or somebody from the offense? Or do you really like cheese anyway....?

     

    Thanks for the light heart you bring to SA,

    hmmm, maybe "God" is IN the refrigerator too. In the food and drink that sustains us. It really comes from somewhere beyond what we know.

     

    Thanks for your stand on Monsanto. You are one feisty gal...!! lol

     

    Have fun at the beach......[IMG]http://bit.ly/Pd7riI[/IMG]
    ...sunrise, Florida. Same sun, different perspective.

     

    Cheers,

    One more one more thing. I see you follow David White. Out of the thousands of people here on SA.....David White...?? Yet he does not follow you. Hmmm, must not be a foodie...

     

    I think he's in trouble. I will try to help. Maybe I can get one speck of what I have learned in my 72 years thru to him. Hey, its worth a try.

    Author’s reply » Rialto,

     

    Thanks for your support concerning Monsanto. I truly hope others will do their due diligence regarding this company.

     

    My support of others here is out of respect for their views and/or the fact that I do genuinely like them and think what they have to offer is of value.

     

    But that doesn't mean that I agree with them on everything they say.

    Author’s reply » Thanks for the depressing article. Good thing it didn't mention that all of these horrible herbicides are being washed into our lakes, rivers, and water supplies or else it would have been really, really depressing.

     

    There's no end to the evil this company is perpetrating.
