A surprise attack by the bull on Yom Kippur propelled the Dow to 9789 and S&P 1062, thus repositioning the bull for one last assault on 10,000. In order for this to happen: a) The indices must close above 9800 and 1070 b) The indices must surpass the 9879 and 1075 mark respectively. Despite positive expected economic numbers throughout the coming days, will the quarterly rebalancing and booking tip the balance towards the bear? In the immediate, the daily pivot (9758) needs to be defended, if not, Sayonara to the forward march.


Time (ET) Indicator Date Actual Expectation Range Prior

PRISM CALL Today the market will try to decide whether or not it wants to rally towards 10,000, or turn back down. Futures were looking a little weaker early this morning. The market will probably move down about 35 points and defend that level. If it can’t defend it and it starts to die, volume is the key. It will take strong volume selling to restart the down move. Conversely, if the market breaks above 9857 on the Dow, then we are back on the 10,000 train.
