Global Financial crisis and some Trade Ideas for next week

The financial crisis catapulted the financial markets for the worst period of the decade. For more than a year that the financial markets are living depressed times due to the growing pessimism among investors in the face of problems, no end in sight in the financial sector, the "brake" of the economies and the expectation of worsening results among the big companies. The losses in small and large investors have been brutal over the last months, especially for those who had betting in long positions since October of 2007. Twelve months later, we have almost all indices testing the lows. But nor always we should look for the falling markets as a synonymous of losses. There are lot of people worldwide that have made big fortunes with the deception of others. For those who in October 2007 invested in short positions, just in the beginning of the current crisis, can now collect capital gains exceeding 65% as a whole. It has been good times for bears and bad times for bulls, and now? Where we go…….. Technical and fundamental indicators still not showing brilliant signs, but I start seeing some light in the end of the tunnel with the end of the actual presidency. In addition, the election time always brought signs of change; therefore it's hard to believe in a new period of disbelief and economic pessimism. Let’s see what the next 12 months will bring to the market. I’m betting for a new wave of growing, it could take some time to assimilate but I'm sure it will start next year. There sure is a lot of money on the sidelines and a lot of talk of the yearend rally.

Juniper Networks (JNPR) has already recouped its recent losses and looks poised to break resistance at 26.50. The technical chart shows positive sign as the stock has been on the upside since late July and the stock has been above the 50-day moving average since that date. A few more positive session could bring MACD back above 0 meaning bull market. Stay tuned on JNPR.

CNTF - Daily chart above shows that it is still to early to say that the downtrend has ended.

HLX - Broken supports turns into resistance. Stock needs to break $28.47 to turn bullish.

CIEN - Looking at the daily chart, it shows weak sign as the stock is still trading below 50 day and 200 day moving average. Another weak sign is MACD which is still below 0. On the other hand, ROC shows the stock is oversold and with volumn spiked as K line crossed on top of D line this is probalby the time that the stock would finally reverse the downtrend. I'm still Bullish on CIENA.

Some good hardcore technical analysis. Remember, even with all the technicals lined up perfectly, non-market news - like the hurricane - can have a major impact on the markets and blow your analysis to hell. Not to mention market related news, like LH. If LH can get a deal for a sale this weekend, then Monday morning might see the first real sell off of the "financial panic". I am optimistic, but realistic. Keep up the good work.
