Sandy Forces QE Fatigue in Remission

Analysis of Nymex Crude Oil ($86.12): The weekly chart for crude oil stays negative on a close Friday below the five-week MMA at $90.94. The 200-week simple moving average is a major support at $82.64 with my new monthly value level at $76.96. My annual and quarterly risky levels are $103.58 and $107.31, so there's room for significant volatility. The 200-week SMA has been a magnet since mid-2009.

Analysis of the euro vs the dollar (1.2940): The weekly chart shifts to negative with a close Friday below the five-week MMA at 1.2876. My new monthly value level lags at 1.2289 with semiannual and quarterly pivots at 1.2917 and 1.3048. A stronger dollar should put pressure on U.S. stocks.
