Trading Diary
November 7, 2001

This is my daily short-term stock trading diary. It is intended to illustrate the techniques used in short-term share trading and should not be interpreted as investment advice. Full terms and conditions can be found at Terms of Use .

The Dow retreated slightly to 9554 after briefly flirting with the 9600 resistance line. The S&P 500 retreated to 1115 while the Nasdaq also performed weakly, giving up most of its intra-day gains. Wait for the Dow to move out of its 9000 to 9600 trading range.
Pushing a piece of string
A very good article on the steps the Fed and US Treasury have taken to stimulate the US economy.

Australia  (ASX)
The All Ords opened near its daily high of 3225 then retreated to close at a daily low of 3190, a sign that there may be further weakness on Thursday. The index is still above its 21-day moving average, showing that it is still in an up-trend. It would be risky to enter this late in the rally, with indicators like the Detrended Price Oscillator showing trend weakness.


We are back in wait-and-see mode, waiting for the Dow to break out of its present trading range, and waiting to see the effect on the All Ords.
