Microsoft (MSFT) 27.57 Critical?
Microsoft (MSFT) 27.57 critical level?
CNBC might find a technical analyst to agree or disagree?
MSFT did not participate in Friday's fireworks show, one of the few DJ-30 components ending down for the day and
After taking out the 2/18 swing high of 29.03 on Monday 3/1 and continuing the next day, Tuesday 3/2, a little
further up to 29.30 only to give it all up, tumbling to a 28.24 low point on heavy selling. Look at the heavy
selling that took place previously on 1/29.
The low of 2/5 (27.57) happens to be the lowest low of the past three months. Violate that and the light goes
red at MarketClub flashing a sell signal on the monthly chart.
Doing our ABC's tells us what are the possibilities:
Point (A) 12/29 31.50 high.
Point (B) 2/5 27.57 low.
Point (C) 3/2 29.30 high (so far).
Point (D) Potential Swing Target: D = C + (B - A).
Therefore, D = 29.30 + (27.57 - 31.50) = 29.30 -3.93 = 25.37
The DJ-30 came within 158 points of taking out the 1/19 top. Will it do it? To be determined.
Does Pelosi having enough votes in the House to push through Obamacare have anything to do with it???
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?
3/15 Monday - New Moon.
3/29 Monday - Full Moon.
