U.S. Stock Market At Key Upper Resistance Levels – OTCPicks.com Market Report


Prosper, TX -- (ReleaseWire) -- 07/23/2009 -- The major U.S. indexes are all trading at or near their highs for the year. The Dow Jones is sitting just under 9000 with the S&P 500 above 950 and the NASDAQ above 1900, levels not seen since the collapse of the financial markets in October of 2008.

With about one third of earnings from companies that make up the S&P index already in, investors are seeing much better than expected results from about seventy percent of the companies. The problem is that these companies are only beating estimates from bottom line results and not the top line growth that traders were hoping for, signaling that the consumer and business as usual activities haven’t come back. Cost cutting and lay offs are driving the earnings and that is not good for the economy if it is to snap back anytime soon.

The equities market is at a critical point with significant earnings reports still to come. Money managers remain under invested and cautious traders aren’t willing to hold positions very long. The market will be looking for top line growth from further earnings reports if it is to continue this furious rally which has seen a forty percent rise since the lows in March. A close over 965 on the S&P could signal a further technical rise in stocks to the 1020 level, or a sell off if it can’t hold 950.
