Weekly Trading Calls -- April 13, 2008

Overall Trading Strategy for the Next Week

For the reasons I stated in my Weekend Notes on the Market, I think the market will be range-bound between Jan/Feb high and March low for the time being. Given the kind of ER we saw from FedEx/UPS/GE, I also suspect the coming ER season will be a rocky one with overall bearish tone. Considering all the turmoil and volatility, the prudent strategy will be CTT using key R/S as entry/exit references levels and overbought/oversold as entry/exit triggers, and it makes sense to shorten the holding time frame until the overall market trend becomes clear.

** SW-L2, ez=MA50-141, IDS below 130, CS below MA50, IT=155
