Some Mid-December Reading

With the excellent set of links churned out almost daily by Abnormal Returns and less frequently by The Kirk Report, I am less inclined to toss my link hat into the ring, but readers always ask for more…so I have assembled a list of ideas from around the blogosphere that I have been pondering the past few days.

…and just for fun…

Todd Salamone of Schaeffers Research indicated this morning that the SPX 500 put/call ratio is the lowest in two years and that the equity put/call ratio is the lowest since February 2007. He also mentioned that the SPX index 50-day moving average is quickly declining and that resistance exists at the 900 level in this index. The VIX cash index was outlined since it closed below its 20-day historical volatility, which has been a bearish signal for the past few months. The FOMC makes a decision on interest rates this Tuesday and GS reports earnings on this day. These factors may provide a bearish bias for the the stock markets in the early part of this week. The impact of any federal funding decisions for the domestic automobile manufacturers should add impact to the December options expirations week.

Always glad to highlight excellent work, Declan.

Frankly, after I posted the links I saw your "Weekly Stock Charts review" and thought it was one of your all-time best. (I would have included that one had I see it earlier.)

Cheers,
