For FullyInformed Members here is the Stock Market Outlook intraday chart analysis to 11:50 AM March 23 2016.
Stock Market Outlook – Morning March 23 2016
The rising US dollar this morning is placing pressuring on gold prices and oil prices. That combined with yesterday’s report showing previously owned home sales dropped 7.1 percent in February and today’s housing report from the Commerce Department, which indicated home sales rose 2 percent but saw a drop in 3 regions is enough to place a little more risk on equities today.
The market has been unable to move higher and break through the important 2050 level. Nike sales while good did not meet analysts estimates and that has investors rethinking a higher push in equity prices in general. In other words, it is am opportunity to take profits.
Stock Market Outlook – Chart To 11:50 AM
The SPX chart to 11:50 this morning shows the pressure on the market as the S&P slips below the 2040 level. The inability to break through 2050, combined with everything from disappointment over Nike earnings to news reports of dissension among Fed officials on a possible April interest rate hike, changes the investing landscape temporarily and has investors in a selling mood.
Momentum this morning though is not building strength to the downside. What we are seeing is primarily profit taking.
