Early Briefing, World Stock Markets

The Inauguration of Donald Trump as the US President kept the DJIA at 19827.25, 0.48% in the Green but the range of 19700-18000 remained intact.

Similarly, DAX at 11630.13, +0.29% stayed in its 5-week range of 11400-700 for another session. Unless there is an immediate positive trigger, the range may continue for another couple of sessions before rising towards 11800-900.

Among the Asian markets

Shanghai at 3132.01, +0.28% has been rising towards the target of 3165-75 though it has to break above the interim resistance around 3150, the strength of JPY (113.52) has pulled down Nikkei to 18934.57, -1.06%. A failure to stay above 18850 may negate expectations of the corrective phase ending soon and open more Southside action.

Nifty at 8349.35, -1.02% has resolved the 5-day range of 8370-8460 to the Southside, and may test 8300 and the support zone of 8270-50 in here.

It is Monday morning, Donald J. Trump is our new President, and looking to Y 2017 and beyond there will be a significant
reorganization of US alliances in the world.

Over the weekend I learned that any of the smaller EU economies are asking the question  ‘why are we in this Union?’

Then there us and Russia, Israel and Iran, and China.

The Big Q: What what will the markets waiting on some real policies to give us a new buy signal?

As I write this report at 4:15a EST on 23 January, the 3 major US stock market index futures are trading flat to unchanged with a Bearish bias.

There are good stocks in good position to move North, they just need something to trigger them.

Earnings season is in full swing now, but so far they are impacting individual  only stocks, not the overall market.

With the indices working  laterally near all time highs, it could be that the earnings results will give the reasons to buy.

Keep in mind that The Bulls marked at 60% recently and again last week, and how that may effect The Trump Rally.

Pay attention in here.
