  • Payroll Data Unlikely To Get Stocks Out Of My Neutral Zone 0 comments
    Feb 3, 2012 3:22 AM | about stocks: TLT, XLE, GLD, DIA, QQQ, SPY
    Day to day volatility has been benign as US stocks grind higher. Given where market levels are we may not have a big enough move in reaction to the payroll data to get stocks out of my overall neutral zone defined by my first quarter pivots; 12,478 Dow Industrials, 1305.4 S&P 500, 2777 NASDAQ, up to 5448 Dow Transports and 829.03 / 836.2 Russell 2000. The 2011 highs are the key to the upside on my topping out prediction; 12,876.00 Dow Industrials, 1370.58 SPX, 2887.75 NASDAQ, 5627.85 Dow Transports and 868.57 Russell 2000. The yield on the 10-Year note has been influenced by my weekly pivot at 1.841. Gold is trading above my quarterly pivot at $1740.9 with my monthly risky level at $1816.4. Crude oil is between its 200-day and 50-day simple moving averages at $94.94 and $99.12, as weak oil is an economic warning. The euro vs the dollar is above my semiannual pivot at 1.2980.

    10-Year Note - (1.823) My semiannual pivot is 1.903 with my annual value at 2.502. My weekly pivot is 1.841 with daily, quarterly, monthly and semiannual risky levels at 1.718, 1.687, 1.347 and 1.385.

    Definition of MOJO - This is my term for technical momentum. I use what's called "12x3x3 slow stochastic readings" from daily, weekly and monthly charts. The scale is zero to 10.0 where above 8.0 is overbought and below 2.0 is oversold.
