Korea related names rebounding: but I wouldn't buy them, instead I would look to buy stocks that were beaten down yesterday on the Korean names even though they have no relation to Korea. Those are the stocks that should rebound the quickest today. [more]
If you start seeing stocks rebounding from day lows and start falling less than triple digits then you know hedge funds are covering and going long ahead of Black Friday.
Just like 10,000 was the support level during the spring and summer.
This Fall and winter the support level is 11,000 on the DJIA.
The 11,000 level was already tested once in November and and the market snapped up with a nearly 200 point gain after the first test.
Today's action is test #2 of the 11,000 DJIA support.
What you see this morning is a setup to get newbies to short this morning gap down open. What will follow next is the experienced shorts will cover all day along ahead of Wed. & Black Friday. I been in the market for nearly 2 decades now and have seen such a setup numerous times and the vast majority of times the market has rallied up on the Wed. before Thanksgiving. So my advice to newbie shorts is to not get sucked in emotion today and overload on the shortside because the past history will be strongly against you today. [more]

ECONX Philadelphia Fed Index Surges in November
Any negativity generated by the Empire Manufacturing Index on Monday was unwound by the Philadelphia Fed Index today. The latter showed a big jump in general business activity as the diffusion index spiked to 22.5 (Briefing.com consensus +5.0) in November from 1.0 in October. A number above zero for this regional manufacturing survey denotes expansion.
The November reading is the highest since May and is equal to the level seen in December 2009. It is also well above the six-month average of 4.7.
The strength in November was fueled by a notable pickup in the new orders index (from -5.0 to +10.4), the shipments index (from 1.4 to 16.8), the unfilled orders index (from -8.9 to +3.7), the average workweek index (from -6.0 to +10.9), and the number of employees index (from 2.4 to 13.3).
In brief, this is a report that suggests manufacturing activity in the Philadelphia Fed region is picking up nicely again after a late-summer lull.
While few pundits are sounding alarm bells anymore about a possible double-dip recession, this is the type of number that should silence the remaining few who are. At the same time, this is the type of number that will get opponents of the Fed's quantitative easing plan riled up again, so it will be worth watching the Treasury market's response to the data and how the stock market reacts to the Treasury market's performance.

That is the one thing bears count on. Panic sellers always send the markets crashing down in such a quick fashion that it does not take long for 2 months of gains to evaporate before our eyes, like its happening right now in 4 of the last 5 trading days.
This type of action will never change throughout history unless they hardwire the human brain not to panic and that won't happen anytime soon.

Its 500% income growth is not shocking when considering that they are involved in managing the wealth of China's richest people. The demographics alone speaks volumes for its business.
was better than this weeklong Crash.
I rather have a quick flash crash then a slow death. At least with a flash crash , you can search the market for stocks that got cut to shreds more than yours and buy them for a quick rebound. In this type of market you just keep bleeding day after day.

The only reason the dollar is going up last 5 days is shorts covering on overplayed Ireland debt news. Problem with that is Ireland is a Net trade Surplus nation unlike GREECE. Its just traders playing with Irish Bonds, but their argument is very weak and they will relinguish soon enough to that reality: [more]

Data out yesterday 72% revenue increase in Oct 2010. This Macau VIP room company rally could just be at the start of its run based on what LVS is doing at Macau, should not take much time to go north of $10
Do not buy all in right now, try and time pullbacks and only buy at 10% increments on each pullback.
GOLD "GLD" is selling off but that's gonna be temp. fall because the Gold bulls just got a weapon to continue their buying ways. I expect "GLD" to run to $150/shr by end of 2010 with this news.
It reports next week, and its expected eps estimate is .84 eps for the qtr.
Should be interesting if it can rally back to $34+ after earnings.
