Two behemoths are moving so close together

its hard to tell them apart

.

APPL’s embraces China

.

Last week 411 went over GE who pays a net -18.9% corporate tax rate to the USA and a +25% tax rate to a totalitarian regime in China.all

APPL is no different than the other globalized companies that help to contribute to their above  and below the table  support of the communist dictatorship in China.

.

  • Apple’s record profits in its earnings report come from China
  • AAPL like hundreds of globalized American companies pay a 25% Chinese corporate tax,
  • millions of workers  who owe their jobs to American Corporations pay up to a 45% China tax
  • All imported American products are taxed at 25% vs a 2.5% tax on Chinese goods coming to America
  • All this goes to the
    Totalitarian Chinese communist state
    and their military machine

Trends

  • Earning Result are usually better than expected. This time a lot better. Growth in China often cited as a major factor.
  • Europe – Major trend is many European economies are rejecting sever austerity measures.  Short term stocks may suffer
  • Spanish 10 year Bond Rates [411 uses this as a critical measurement of European/world stock market stability] have stabilized over last three weeks just under 6% danger zone.
  • McCellan Oscillator [411 very successful technical tool in market direction - Tops/bottoms] is nearing overbought territory

Reading The Tea Leaves

.

..

Technically  - Obvious short term momentum with bulls, but another rally day will bring is into mildly overbought territory. Stock moving higher need two factors. The fact that socialists should win May 6th elections in France should be already factored into stocks.

  • Europe’s canary in the coal mine, Spanish bonds need to stay below 6%. A strong resistance level has been established.
  • Our Fed’s “Operation Twist” ends in June. Traders/Investors/Manipulators need to see that they will continue liquidity dump.
  • Short term bulls will soon get an overbought correction soon if rally continues. Longer term below

As long as the Spanish canary doesn’t chip we’re looking decent for May. If there is no signs of further Fed liquidity, then the old late spring/summer meltdown will probably repeat itself.
