more questions than answers
NYC - I pulled up 2 decades worth of S&P and DJIA charts.
I suspect that there is a good likelihood of a double hedge going on: hedgers hedging (i.e. via shorting equities) their initial hedges as they desperately try to hedge their mounting losses. The "driving motor" of the forementioned desperation may just be â€śMore than 8.3 million U.S. mortgage holders owed more on their loans in the fourth quarter than their property was worth as the recession cut home values by $2.4 trillion last year, First American CoreLogic said. An additional 2.2 million borrowers will be underwater if home prices decline another 5%... Households with negative equity or near it account for a quarter of all mortgage holders.â€ť - March 4 â€“ Bloomberg. (they are coming faster than 0bama's capacity to preserve them)
I will spare you the many varied images for your imagination of the continuing job loss reports, except to ask: what is your expectation for the number of monthly job losses to surpass one million mark in the next few months ? And its effect ?
IF u think stocks drive the FX, u may want to make allowances for the two bottom lines I drew in each chart, respectively.
tia for comments.

Nice call Amman
Amman - Yes, I remember, nice call Friday am. What do you think of the first 15mn candle at #s? Usually NFP is a time of impulsive moves up and down. Not this time.The move up did not start at 8:30 but, with great self assurance, started at 8:15 with a 35pip 15min candle - that's 2pips/min. That kind of characterized the whole move from 1am.

Entry: Target: Stop:
DJIA : The market can easily move up to 6922 and projected resistant points are position at 6804 and 6954. The market is positive if it can trade above 7478. On the other hand when the downward trending momentum is strong enough to penetrate through 6442, the market will tackle 6197. The market is negative when it is below the 6000 mark and the market may challenge the supporting strength of 5610. So watch the following reference points next week and one should get some idea about the market movement.
