Short Trades Limp Out
1 day ago by Declan Fallon @ Fallond Picks

Yesterday's swing trade will have stopped out the aggressive short trades at the narrow doji, where the doji range was used as a stop. Shorts using the 50-day MA as a stop will still have a little room left to play with. Those looking for a new shorting opportunity may use today's doji as the entry trigger; shorting loss of doji low with stop on break of doji high (or a long trade on the reverse break).The aforementioned trade looks clearest on the S&P where it edged above resistance but not enough to break beyond the 50-day MA; I have marked a second (short) entry signal but if it closes above the 50-day MA then the last chance saloon for these trades will be done.<img border="0" data-original-height="80...

1 day ago by Bill McBride @ Calculated Risk

From housing economist Tom Lawler: Early Read on Existing Home Sales in December: Big DropBased on publicly-available local realtor/MLS reports released across the country through today, I project that existing home sales as estimated by the National Association of Realtors ran at a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.97 million in December, down 6.6% from November’s preliminary estimate and down 10.6% from last December’s seasonally adjusted pace.On the inventory front, local realtor/MLS data, as well as data from other inventory trackers, suggest that the inventory of existing homes for sale in December was up by about 5.5% from last December.Finally, local realtor/MLS data suggest that the median US existing single-family home sales price last month was up by about 2.7% from last December.CR Note: Existing home sales for December are scheduled to be released on Tuesday, Jan 22nd.
