The market awoke to word that the EU, mainly Germany would bale Greece out in exchange for austerity measures. This sent the Euro up and the dollar down, which in turn pushed our stock market higher. Got that?
There was no official word however and there are also concerns that austerity measures could cause social unrest. And then there are also concerns about Portugal, Spain and Italy. It never ends.
A Morgan Stanley upgrade of Caterpillar, which surged 5 ½% also helped the bullish case on Tuesday.
Chart inserted by Moneytalks
Help may be on the way with sentiment also. When the CBOE put call ratio’s 5 day m.a. moves above 1.00, there is a tendency for the market to move higher. We can see this in the chart below.
The dollar’s drop helped push a rally in gold, silver, copper and crude oil. Bonds were down on the session.
Our intermediate term systems are on a buy signal.
