    Default Dow

    Closed below 12,000 on more concern about further credit crunch fallout. More volatility to come me thinks.

    DOW down 220 points & DOW Futures down 200 points on Friday = very ugly day on ASX tomorrow.

    Watch for the panic selling, followed by the recoup on Tuesday...

    My stocks dont seem to get catch up with the general market sentiment.

    Probably cos they never go up on green days!

    Margin buyers........I think many have come back into this scheme over the last few months- as things appear to have become more stable.
    With the Dow again on the skids.............look for some stocks to drop 3-10% as Margineers gets squeezed.
    What about all the NZOers on Margin loans......could get ugly?

    Im holding VIR (Alternative Energy) on margin lending, however it is very stable & generates large cashflows & pays out a distribution of 10cps.

    To drop further than say 70c, only increases the yield beyond 14%.

    THE USD is also acting a bit indecisive too...

    Well, both the ASX and NZX shugged that off, for today at least.

    The Dow is getting close to its primary support level of 11750.
    Indications are, it has a better than average chance of falling below that support. If it does the TA target is 11000

    I would be surprised if the Dow didn't rally from around here: as you say, around a key support level right now. I think we may be around a low for the year in terms of the Dow - time will tell. A Dow chart from around the start of the decade and in particular the levels reached in 2002 tell a story as to where things might spring off in the near future.

    So much for my prediction: Dow tanking tonight along with the Naz.

    Financials getting hammered - tech stocks getting pasted - gold and oil up, US $ down.

    I have to admit that I am surprised that many, if not all, are saying the US is going to be in for a 'mild' recession - when all indicators point to a very long and very deep recession.

    Thing is, in relation to the Dow, the reality of a recession hasn't even hit yet, let alone one that could be much nastier than anything in living memory - what is going to happen to the Dow if the USA really does fall into more than a 'mild' recession?

    I was expecting a bear market rally off support, but clearly my call was wrong. The Dow will go much lower from here one would expect.

    So it appears the Fed has run out of room to move. No more interest rate cuts = bad news for equities over the next two months?

    AMR has sold all shares and is pursuing property.

    The only move it can make is to raise rates - bad news for equities through this year and next at the very least.

    Yes I watch Closing Bell and Fast Money in the mornings on CNBC
    Malcolm usually Fast Money is entertaining and funny with the traders joking away and taking the mickey out of their counterparts when they have a bad day...but this morning they didn't crack one joke..they were all rather subdued.
    First time I've noticed this. I think this is a very bad bad sign.

    Independance day was a breaker this/last week. Watching with interest, next. Maybe a few good buys will flow through into the NZ and AUS markets - bit of spare cash is handy to have ATM.
