Pre-Market Study Hall
- November 7th, 2010
Last week, was a tremendous week. The RBA raised rates. The Fed and the BoJ ushered in QE2. UK economy continued to show signs of strength in services and manufacturing while the Eurozone showed slowing robustness in its economy. The US economy added 151,000 jobs to its economy even while wages, and therefore spending, continue to sag. And Trichet laughably continued to support the strong USD policy. The fundamental landscape changed somewhat last week with all the definitive actions by the various central banks.

The Pre-Market Study Hall is a step away from the charts and a look at 2 things: 1) The fundamentals that may drive the markets in the trading week ahead; and 2) The individual trader psychology for self-improvement.
