Sterling Weekly for March 7th, 2005

The overall market finished last week on a very positive note with the major market indices closing at their highest levels in the last 3 1/2 years. This is all very positive. I am expecting the Dow Jones Industrial Average to reach our target level of 11,340.47 within the near future, and sometime later this year it should reach our intermediate target level of 11,725.41.

I have taken a look at the various charts for the price of oil, including the near term futures and the cash price. I tend to feel that the cash and nearer futures contracts are the most relevant. I see clearly defined "cup patterns" on all these charts indicating that we could see oil continue to move higher to a range of $64-$69/barrel. A move of that magnitude is not that unrealistic as it would only be roughly 25% higher than our current price levels. I realize that oil is not as significant of a factor for our economy as it used to be, but still a move to those price levels is bound to have an effect on our economy and markets.
