EK explodes to the upside! Wow! Double Wow! An incredible 33 million share day! That's
a lot of stock. Way above recent normal volume. Somebody wanted to buy a lot of stock
in a hurry. What do they know that we don't? The previous day, it looks like a 'search
and destroy' mission gunning stops. Picking off low hanging fruit. Friday, the buying
started in earnest right out of the gate. Looks like some profit taking at the end of
the day. Have they shot their load or is there more where that came from? I would look
for a pullback to see where support comes in.
CNBC, along with everyone else, was preoccupied with the Michael Jackson and Farrah
Fawcett news and the House vote on Cap and Trade.
Meanwhile, back at the Dow, the market seems to continue working on the 'right shoulder'
of an inverted head-and-shoulders formation.
Approaching the 4th of July weekend, expect traders to leave town early. When they
return, the 'earnings' season will kick off on 7/8 with AA reporting on Q2.
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?
7/7 Tuesday - Full Moon.
7/21 Tuesday - New Moon (Visible 2 days).
During the next two weeks, the following Dow components report earnings. Keep a sharp eye
out for possible price swings leading up to 'earnings day' (Subject to revision):
7/8 AA, (Transportations) AMR.
7/9 UTX, CVX.
