The charts for oil are very ugly but it is not like we have not been warning about this. It is tanking.
Shanghai fell 21 points. It is in bear territory.
Hong Kong was flat.
Tokyo lost 115 points. It is bearish but not as definitive as the $SSEC.
Frankfurt fell 8 points and closed on the support level of its 50 day moving average (MA). Today is the third trading day it is testing this level and this means it could bounce up although my confidence level on this one is only 40%.
Paris fell 19 points. A bear is on the loose.
London gained 8 points. It is bearish.
Toronto gained 17 points. It is bearish.
Dow Jones Industrial Average lost 32 points. It is on the way down.
Standard and Poor lost 1 point and continues to fall.
NASDAQ gained 19 points. It could actually turn around on its own as it is seeming stronger than its 3 cousins. Christmas shopping might have started early (think gadgets).
