Adam Hewison: Harrisburg, PA. Seeks Bankruptcy..... Is America Next in Line?

It’s not difficult to believe that Harrisburg Pennsylvania is filing for bankruptcy with overwhelming debt of almost half $1 billion. It shows once again that politicians have no clue when it comes to spending money, particularly when it’s someone else’s money.

The question we must all ask ourselves is what’s next? In our home state of Maryland we have $20 billion unfunded liability for entitlements. I’m sure it’s the same across the country. We have had reckless politicians spending too much money and not being held responsible for when things go wrong. It was interesting to see what was happening in the Ukraine, where they’re jailing their former prime minister, Yulia Tymoshenko, to a seven year jail term for abuse of power during term as prime minister.

Just imagine how that would play out in other countries, including the United States. It certainly would make politicians think before committing and spending money that we don’t have. At the moment, no one is held responsible.

It also looks like the politicians in the Euro Zone have kicked the can down the road. This just moves the financial disaster to future generations. No one politician wants to assume responsibility for the incredible amount of future debt they are creating. What does this all have to do with the markets?

We will rely on our Trade Triangle technology to keep us in the loop and in the markets at the right time.

Let's check out the action in the crude oil markets today.....

With both weekly and monthly Trade Triangles in place, we see little enthusiasm to go long this market at the present time. Presently this market is overbought and we expect to see a pullback from current levels. As you know this market has been closely tied in to the movements of the S&P 500. Overall we still view the trend in this market as negative. Intermediate and Long term traders should continue to be short the crude oil market. Please note that we are switching to the December contract for crude oil.

Monthly Trade Triangles for Long Term Trends = Negative
Weekly Trade Triangles for Intermediate Term Trends = Negative
Daily Trade Triangles for Short Term Trends = Positive
Combined Strength of Trend Score = – 65

November crude oil posted an inside day with a slightly lower close on Wednesday as it consolidated some of the rebound off last week's low. The mid range close sets the stage for a steady opening on Thursday. Stochastics and the RSI remain bullish signaling that sideways to lower prices are possible near term. If November extends the rally off last week's low, September's high crossing at 90.69 is the next upside target. Closes below the 10 day moving average crossing at 81.64 would temper the near term friendly outlook.

First resistance is September's high crossing at 90.69.
Second support is July's high crossing at 101.39.

First support is the 20 day moving average crossing at 82.95.
Second support is the 10 day moving average crossing at 81.65.
