  • Market Strength Relies on Bulls' Patience
    11/15/2005 9:03 AM EST

    "Patience and tenacity of purpose are worth more than twice their weight of cleverness."

    -- Thomas H. Huxley

    The market paused in its upward trajectory yesterday, but it could hardly be deemed a pullback. Not only was that of little concern, but it was downright refreshing to take a brief rest. The bulls need to exercise some patience and let the short-termers, nervous nellies and profit takers shake themselves out of the market.

    The benefit of a pause in the market is that it allows stock to rotate into the hands of buyers who are more confident about the future. They will be less likely to be shaken out and should provide buying support. A consolidating market also helps shift psychology so that buyers don't feel like they are "chasing" stocks that have already made a big move. Sometimes just a pause of a day or two makes the market feel much more reasonable.

    The real measure of health in this market is the tenacity of the bulls. They are not showing any signs of tempering their enthusiasm for this market. There seems to be a very good supply of dip buyers under the surface. The market pullbacks have been extremely shallow and have not lasted long at all.

    My biggest worry about this market is that the bulls do not exercise some patience and let skepticism and uncertainty grow a bit. We need some cash on the sidelines and some doubts about the market to serve as fuel for it to keep moving higher. If the bulls can stay patient, their tenacity will continue to drive this market in the weeks ahead.

    PPI and Retail Sales numbers just hit and are helping to boost the market. Core PPI was .5% below the consensus of a .2% increase and retail sales were also well ahead of estimates. Retail growth and no inflation? Sounds like the perfect combination for the market. I'm sure we will hear from the usual assortment of bears why these stats do not reflect reality. Maybe they don't, but it is the sort of data that will prevent this market from falling off a cliff.

    We have a slightly upbeat start to the day, but overseas markets were a bit soft. Gold is trading up and oil down. Look for a continuation of yesterday's basing action to continue.

    Hommikused uudised:

    Oct. PPI rose 0.7%, (consensus 0.0%) but core-PPI fell 0.3%, much better than an expected 0.2% rise, easing inflation concerns. Oct. retail sales fell 0.1% (consensus -0.7%) while sales, ex autos, rose 0.9% (consensus +0.3%), indicative of strong consumer spending heading into the holiday shopping season.

  • Laskumata arutelusse, kes ja kas süüdi jääb on siiski suht uskumatu, et LHV lubab poistel oma kaubamärki hetkel edasi kasutada. Seni kuni asi selge võiks ehk mõne tagasihoidlikuma blogspoti aadressiga leppida. See annab ka vastaspoolele hea argumendi: eks see LHV ja Peek ikka üks ja sama punt on.
