SEE ALL MY CURRENT WATCH LISTS HERE: James’ Stock WatchLists

Yesterday was another rough day on Wall Street as the Dow closed -617 points, or -2.4%, lower. The S&P 500 also ended down -2.4% and the Nasdaq lost -3.4% on the session.


QUOTE OF THE DAY:

“Winning or losing of the election is less important than strengthening the country.
– Indira Gandhi


The latest trade battle between the United States and China is causing fresh pain for investors in Asia, but other global markets are looking brighter.

Hong Kong’s Hang Seng (HSI) closed -1.5% lower, the Shanghai Composite (SHCOMP) fell -0.7% and Japan’s Nikkei (N225) shed -0.6%. South Korea’s KOSPI (KOSPI) managed to buck the trend, edging -0.14% higher.

However, this morning, European indexes including the FTSE 100 (UKX), CAC 40 (CAC40) and DAX (DAX) all opened higher.

Also, U.S. stock futures are pointing up with the Dow set to rise about 160 points, the Nasdaq is tracking a +0.7% rise, and the S&P 500 could open up +0.5%.

Shares made an abrupt drop on Monday along with the broader market which gaped down considerably.

As previously noted – a  break back down into the base or below our 1st SUPPORT would be an initial concern and that did occur.

I must now lower our 1st SUPPORT from $95 to the 50-day moving average, currently at $93.26.

Our 2nd SUPPORT is now the previous lows at $92.00.

We now have a total of 12 stocks on our watch lists.
