Market Opening Outlook 11/2/11

The overnight action was relatively quiet in the Spoos. The 2 and 5 day cycles’ sideways up phase pattern (an up phase in time that doesn’t go up) was maintained through the night as markets traded from the Far East to Europe. The players are waiting expectantly to see what Ben drops in the bowl, not to mention, which bowl he drops it in. The 30 minute bar chart on the S&P fucutures has a slight uptilt, with a trading range of 1220-1240. The 2 day cycle is due to begin a down phase this morning, but the real action won’t start until the bowl splasher is released just after 12:30 PM ET when the FOMC announcement is due. I would also keep in mind that the market’s usual initial reaction on FOM Circus day is often reversed the following day, after traders have had a day to mull things over.

I’ve been publishing The Wall Street Examiner and its predecessor since October 2000. I also publish, and was lead analyst for Sure Money Investor, of blessed memory. I developed David Stockman's Contra Corner for Mr. Stockman. I’ve had a wide variety of finance related jobs since 1972, including a stint on Wall Street in both sales, analytical, and trading capacities. Prior to starting the Wall Street Examiner I was a commercial real estate appraiser in Florida for 15 years. I was considered an expert in the analysis of failed properties that ended up in the hands of bank REO divisions, the FDIC, and the RTC. Remember those guys? I also worked in the residential mortgage and real estate businesses in parts of the 1970s and 80s. I have been charting stocks and markets and doing analytical work since I was a teenager. I'm not some Ivory Tower academic, Wall Street guy. My perspective comes from having my boots on the ground and in the trenches, as a real estate broker, mortgage broker, trader, account rep, and analyst. I've watched most of the games these Wall Street wiseguys play from right up close. I know the drill from my 55 years of paying attention. And I'm happy to share that experience with you, right here.
