    "It is great to be a blonde. With low expectations it's very easy to surprise people."

    -- Pamela Anderson

    We enter the bulk of earnings season with fairly low expectations. After Intel (INTC:Nasdaq) not many folks were expecting great reports particularly in the technology sector. Texas Instruments (TXN:NYSE) gave slightly disappointing sales guidance but investors were apparently satisfied nonetheless and bid the stock up. IBM (IBM:NYSE) was even more upbeat and expressed confidence about 2005. The stock is trading up about $2.50 on the news. Throw in a further decline in crude oil prices to around the $53 level and the bulls are sitting pretty to start the day.

    The bears can still find plenty of things to worry about like the weak semiconductor book-to-bill report but with low expectations for earnings and falling oil prices the bulls are in a buying mood and it won't pay to stand in their way.

    The Nasdaq has a very interesting technical hurdle nearby that is going to come into play soon. The downtrend line that connects the tops back to January and the 200 day moving average are looming at 1965 to 1970. Even if the bulls are unable to break through that point today they will be in good position to finally turn the trend upward as we enter the seasonally strong period in November and December.

    I mentioned last week that the market looked like it was undergoing a change in character. The strong earnings reports and falling oil help confirm that thesis. We are seeing money move out of the defensive oil, mining and steel stocks into technology. That is the sort of leadership that warms the hearts of the bulls. We'll see now if they can run with it.

    We have a flood of earnings reports to contend with over the next 10 days or so, which means we are likely to find some good trading opportunities regardless of what the major indices may do.

    We have CPI due out in a moment and that may cause a flutter or two. Overseas markets were solid because of the good reports from Texas Instruments and IBM. I'm not sure the initial euphoria will hold but I expect buyers to be interested in putting money to work on a dip.

  • Spitzer ründab jälle. Seekord siis health insurance business: UNH, WLP, AET, ATH, CVH, HUM ja WC punases.

    Paneb imestama kuidas ülejäänud turg sellele vastu peab. Kui kauaks tugevust jätkub?
    Not good, not good at all.

  • Me olime just mõnda aega tagasi AETis lühikesed, see aktsia liikus sentides, harva punktides. Täna miinus 10 punkti. Karm.
