Not sure what you are asking. Here's a three day scalper scan(similar to John Carter strategy in TOS):

SPY could be in a short term breakout to the down side or at least until GE reports on Friday. Watch ZZ after COB today. This could be an indicator on the economy.

Keep in mind that the Fed still has one or two more bullets left in the chamber. That should give one or two small to medium size rallies. Then the 'let our children pay for our mistakes' give away starts and that could go two different ways. If we all go to the local restaurants and have a nice meal or two, then the US economy will benefit. If we go to Best Buy or Circuit CIty and buy electronic gadgets, then bet on Chinese stocks.

Reaganonomics, or spending to refurbish a bunch of old rusty ships, propelled the Japanese economy and when the Reagan spending stopped, so did the Japanese economy. Shipyard workers bought Toyotas and Nissans instead of Chevies and Fords. They bought Sony instead of Zenith.

The Olympic spending in China will stop in the fall so expect a fall in the foreign markets to start then. Look at the Bollinger-Keltner graph presented several weeks ago. It's Deja VOO all over again. I am trying to be realistic and mention historical events that could give us some idea of what's ahead.

Nothing like the smell of Napalm in the morning, or something like that.

All good points. I heard a commentary the other day and it's premise was: What if the average US resident altered their habits and became savers instead of consumers? Would world consumption absorb the manufacturing capacity available? Probably not.

If Dave Ramsey et al gain any more viewers and listeners then things could really turn down in the global market since they advocate paying off debt. Since we won't have many manufacturing jobs to loose, the US could actually prosper in such an environment.

As an example, the housing down turn had minimal effect on the US economy this time around since many of the workers were illegal aliens sending money back to Mexico propping up their econmony. That's why Western Union did so well before the downturn. Most of the effect here is the US was excess new housing inventory and the subprime mess.

How are we in a recession if 95% of the workforce is employed? The little guys are getting squeezed becasue the dollar is so low with Paulson's STRONG DOLLAR POLICY that oil and food are through the roof. Strengthen the dollar and those prices should come down and Joe Average will again have cash to shop at JC Pennys, Nordstrum, Target and Walmart.

A recovery may be possible in such an environment creating a bottom and turn around. Here, here for a strong dollar. Would someone explain that to the Fed?

Soothing thoughts for the morning.

Headlines on MSN:

Bush proposes financial regulation overhaul
Plan would expand powers of Federal Reserve

Mana from heaven, now GS, MER BSC et al will become fed subsidized permanetly...I mean regulated. Talk about Wall Street on Welfare.

The market will never bottom if these goobers keep pulling stunts like this. Somebody needs to take Berwanker and Paulbearer's crystal and brass balls away. Where's Kudlow when you need him (ie free market capitalism)?

I did some research on the early days of stock markets. The reason the US flourished and England lagged was regulation. The US had little or no rules and London had more than it could stand. One grew siginficantly and the other didn't. The US became a super power because of free market capitalism.

By the way, the largest portion of foreign capital in the US market is British, so you know where the Brits put their money years ago. Where is money moving now?

Quit making new rules and enforce the ones you have. The SEC should consider going after the guys at the brokerage houses who commited fraud and other heinous acts against investors. FINRA also should step in and straighten out their rats nest and spend more money on enforcement instead of advertising.

Niko, apologies, i had no intention of calling you a short sighted day trader. I have day traded myself with some level of success. The question posed for this thread was, has the market truly bottomed and that's what the answer related to.

To the other point, Bernanke has turned into Santa Claus instead of a regulator. What ever Wall Street wishes for Wall Street gets. Will the market continue the short term bounce, probably so, thanks for Bernanke.

The WSJ published this Friday after the market closed:

Standard & Poor's, in a continuing sign of loss of confidence in investment banks' profitability, Friday put Goldman Sachs Group Inc. and Lehman Brothers Holdings Inc. on negative outlook, lowering them from stable. ---- In my book that's not news I'd but financial stocks on.

If I went to the Xerox machine and started printing money like the Fed, the FBI would show up at my door with a search warrant. Let the hide go with the hair and let the market take its course. When Congress likes what you did I get real concerned and they liked the bail out.

The Keltner Bands/Bollinger Bands chart you presented several weeks ago demonstrated that we were heading for a bear market. When does it end? We are in a commodity bubble right now and no one wants to be the first to bail although oil ag chemicals is beginning to come down.

Oh by the way, another example of free-market capitalism. China has blocked shipments of iron ore because they feel that prices are too high and want them reduced. Maybe there is a lesson here.

What if the US blocked oil imports for a month and used the Strategic Petroleum Reserve during that time? If you want a bottom, cut commodity prices. How would that affect the economy? Much better than another rate cut! How about some creativity here?

For the short term, yes Virginia there will be a Bernanke bounce. Long term, I don't think so. China's building boom has to end sometime.

Several are crashing at this time, Maybe Bennie Boy Bernanke can figure out how to bail them out as well. I can assure you many are prospering in this environment. There are more hedge funds than stocks available, so if 5, 50 or 500 go belly up it's a smalll percentage of the herd of hedge funds.

Large funds like BP Partners have doubled and tripled their worth in the past two or three years. They aren't in stocks. If they bail out of oil, the bottom will fall out.... precipitously. Same with the precious metals and other commodities. Maybe then stocks will start going up again. Smart (most) hedgers are in other things besides stocks right now.

Just check the ones going from lower left to upper right, as Gartmen says. Are these upward movements truly market driven or herd driven? I ask you again to compare CFC or most stocks for that matter to USO or other commodities in the past year.

If you plot CFC and USO on the same graph, it tells the story. This market isn't supply or demand driven, it's driven where the hedge fund herd decides where it should go. When it became obvious that CFC was headed for trouble, oil was the next bubble to create.

Some really knowledgeable folks like Dan Yergan, conclude that oil should not be above $80/bbl, but it is. There is ample supply with current production. In addition, we are making several of our enemies rich with h/f shenanigans.

The market will bottom when the hedge funds decide. They are having too much fun playing the volitility right now.
