Last blog for the week. Hope to be back Monday or Tuesday

From Huffington Post – Japan

Japan’s Reactor CrisisNYT today has a comprehensive  article – U.S. Sees Array of New Threats at Japan’s Nuclear Plant Many Kudos to JS, Popeye. Yankee Bob and Jim J who have kept us up to date on this in the comment section of blog.

CBO on Republican Budget Cuts. – The non partisan Congressional Budget Office analysis of Republican Paul Ryan’s budget cut proposals. From Business Insider’s Dean Baker “Representative Ryan Proposes Medicare Plan Under Which Seniors Would Pay Most of Their Income for Health Care” Proposed title if we had a “independent press” and people read the “CBO report

Green Energy“If someone told you there was a way you could save 2.5 million to 3 million lives a year and simultaneously halt global warming, reduce air and water pollution and develop secure, reliable energy sources – nearly all with existing technology and at costs comparable with what we spend on energy today – why wouldn’t you do it?

Maybe its improbable, but thought this was worth a look – Researchers from Stanford & UC says- “The world can be powered by alternative energy, using today’s technology, in 20-40 years”

Stocks

  • Not much happened. Market rallied in AM boosted by Fed Pomo and fell in PM when Fed minutes said majority of members did not want QE #3 right now.
  • Lots of this type of editorial about second guessing the Fed abound.  The Fed does Rule or is the Manipulator in Chief. This one is interesting
  • Many of the ETF’s mentioned yesterday are at highs. Preferable to wait for a dip to buy

Reading The Tea Leaves

Longer Term Bottom Line – No Black Swan events have been able to seriously impact the Fed liquidity driven equity market. So bulls rule

Shorter term Bottom Line - McClellan Oscillator shows moderate overbought US equities, so there is resistance to moving higher. Better entry points with lower MO

Market Movers to watch today - Same list with UUP (the dollar) still has most influential, unless others make some huge move.

  • USO - ETF for oil - Oil up = stocks down - Now back above $100. - Headlines from Libya not good.
  • UUP - (Tracking ETF for dollar) Remember - The dollar is a contrarian indicator. Bad dollar = good stocks
  • AAPL – Tech giant and market mover – Trading below its 50 DMA. Since mid February this char shows a series of lower highs and lower lows = Bearish
  • Japan Rector Developments – This keeps getting worse.
  • EEM – Emerging market ETF – On a breakout run, but getting  way over extended.
