Cramer sees bullish market trends no matter who wins, Trump or Biden

CNBC’s Jim Cramer said Monday there are structural forces exacerbated by the coronavirus pandemic that support continued strength in the stock market, regardless of the presidential election outcome.

“I think there’s a genuine belief that it doesn’t matter who wins. It doesn’t matter about stimulus,” Cramer said on “Squawk on the Street.” “There are enough trends out there, established by Covid, that just say, ‘Get long. And the No. 1, of course, is the internet just plowing through.”

Cramer’s comments came as stock futures were higher Monday, led by those for the tech-heavy Nasdaq. Stocks later opened higher, with the Dow Jones Industrial Average gaining more than 100 points. The major benchmarks all posted strong gains last week as Wall Street monitored the dizzying back-and-forth in Washington over negotiations on additional coronavirus relief.

Investors are also watching the race between President Donald Trump and Democratic nominee Joe Biden, about three

AUD/USD technical analysis : Stamina preserves bullish bearing

AUDUSD, in spite of its recent stalling, maintains a sturdy positive structure above the simple moving averages (SMAs) and the Ichimoku cloud. Aiding the climb is the intact bullish drive in the Ichimoku lines and the robustness of the upward sloping 50- and 100-day SMAs.

The short-term oscillators illustrate the recent pause in the pair, reflecting the reduction in positive momentum. The MACD, in the positive area, is carefully shadowing below its red trigger line, while the RSI is weakening in bullish territory. Moreover, the stochastic oscillator has turned negative promoting frailty in the pair. Nonetheless, the MACD and RSI remain in positive regions while the SMAs bullish tone prevails.

If buyers resurface, immediate resistance may arise from the 0.7344 high, and the adjacent near 25-month peak of 0.7413. Surpassing this, the 0.7452 to 0.7483 area of highs from early July and August, may provide limitations to the ascent. Should

‘Uber bullish’ tech investor Paul Meeks makes 20% correction call

Tech investor Paul Meeks is waiting for the Nasdaq to fall 20% from its record high before making any big moves.

Meeks, who’s known for running the world’s largest tech fund during the late 1990s, believes tech stocks are still too expensive despite this month’s correction.

“For the long-term, I’m uber bullish on tech,” the portfolio manager at Independent Solutions Wealth Management told CNBC’s “Trading Nation” on Thursday. “That being said, my concern and really my only concern, is valuation. But it is a pretty big concern.”

With the Nasdaq on track for its worst week since March 20, Meeks believes another wave of selling could come before the end of the year, dragging popular mega-cap growth names even lower.

He lists the contentious relationship between the U.S. and China as a potential catalyst for another wave of selling.

“Folks don’t realize that the tech supply chain is intertwined between
