Disney (DIS) 28.71 critical pivot point.
Stock is currently attempting to challenge the 32.75 high. Will it succeed? The weekly chart is not
CNBC, at last, has quoted one technical analytical authority whose opinion is, "There is little or no evidence
of a 'rolling over'." Don't you feel better now?
As long as the 200ma on the DJ-30 weekly chart is definitely rolling over, it's difficult to make a bullish
case. MarketClub draws attention to 9678.95 (lowest low of the last 3 months, currently) at which point their
monthly 'Trade Triangle' will turn red indicating a sell signal.
W. D. Gann, a keen market observer, although not an astronomer, nevertheless, was
fascinated by the apparent coincidence of important market 'pivot points' and astronomical
dates. Theories exist for estimating time and price of important market turning points but
astronomical occurrences are computed with mathematical certainty.
There is no logical reason why these occurrences should coincide yet, empirically, they
have. The 'Full Moon' and 'New Moon', among others, have been cited. Therefore, one might
be well advised to be aware of their occurrence. Note: The first 5 business days of 2008
concluded on a 'New Moon' and we all know how that worked out. Coincidence?
2/13 Saturday - New Moon (Watch market action Friday 2/12 & Monday 2/15).
2/28 Sunday - Full Moon ( Watch market action Friday 2/26 & Monday 3/1).
