The Weekly Report For June 1st – June 5th, 2009

May 31, 2009- Market Summary
The U.S. financial markets managed to finish higher for the third consecutive month despite the increasing fears of inflation. The story of the week was the sliding dollar, which helped push the price of several commodities higher. The price of silver saw the biggest monthly gain in 22 years, while oil prices dominated the headlines with a move above $66 per barrel for the first time since November.

As we mentioned in our previous report, the major indexes are flirting with the resistance of their respective 200-day moving averages. From a technical perspective, the nearby resistance could put the brakes on the recent rally
because it is used by many traders to determine the direction of the market. A new uptrend will not be confirmed until we see a break above these important barriers.
