The stock market engine will seize for few months

Stocks tumbled around the world again on concern government efforts to stabilize financial markets won't avert a recession. The signs of recession are now clearer than never. The German business confidence reported today showed a significant decline to the lowest level in more than five years in October as the deepening financial crisis dimmed the outlook for economic growth. The history shows that the financial problems should lead to several years of slowdown or recession. Two recent articles of the IMF show that there is no worst financial crisis for the real economy, than those with roots in the banking system. The banking crisis of the past thirty years have dictated that economic slowdowns caused, on average, about 20% of GDP in four years since followed. The IMF also concluded that 42 registered banking crises in 37 countries since 1970, cost on average 13.3% of GDP to the budgets of countries, via aid to banks and revenue. It looks like the stock market engine will seize for few months.

More trade Ideas below for Tuesday :

GG -A dip below $15 again will accelerate the down move. On the upper side, the outlook will improve above $17.50. On the technical side of the stock, the 50 day and 200 day moving averages still indicates weakness as the stock still trading below both moving averages. The only technical indicator which shows signs of bullishness is Stochastics which suggest a buy signal as K line crossed on top of D line. Avoid fresh exposures until the stock closes above the resistance level at $17.50

JNPR - The stock has broken all medium term supports, and appears weak. On the upper side, immediate resistance is at $18.05. The next resistance is at $20, and long position should be taken only above that level.

PEP - Technically, the stock is in a downtrend. There are no signs of a recovery in stock price as yet. The average daily trading volume needs to exceed 10 million of shares. If a stock trades too thinly, chart analysis doesn't help much, because there just are not that many traders involved. One big buy or sell order can move the stock in ways that chart analysis just cannot predict. At the present moment, there is a risk of a drop to $50-$51. Stop-loss for long positions may be placed at $50.65. On the other hand, a close past $55 would impart bullish momentum.
