The stock market: Where's the short term bottom?

Here we are with another day of opportunities or crisis. The Nikkei is down tonight 420 points at this hour to 8700 on the Nikkei 225 and the Hang Seng is down over 1200 points to 19,128. The big question is this, where is the bottom for our market and when will it bounce up a bit and stabilize. Based upon Asia, I would say we are going to go down more than where we are now on Tuesday. The chart below is where I see a stand taking place between the Bulls and the Bears, with the Bears winning the momentum game at the moment. The blue horizontal line at 11,000 now becomes the resistance level for the Dow, if the market does turn up. The red line at the 10,000 level is support for this market. It should make a stand between these 2 lines and stay between theses 2 levels until direction of the economy and the actions taken by the G-7 and G-20 becomes more clear. Italy's debt is still a major market concern, even though we tend to focus on our markets and economy right now.

If you haven't read the posts of the past few days, it would be worth your time. Thanks for visiting.

"This is a dead Fed bounce", I suspect the doom and gloom folks are probably right. Sadly the only way to make sense of this market is to think like a criminal banker, and print more money to oblivion. ... Warm Regards ... Vic
