Auto BailOut Plan Insufficient To Keep Dow Up

A stronger than expected auto bailout plan, announced before the opening bell, provided a potent boost to the market on early trading, propelling the Dow into the green for most of the session.

However, hopes that Congress will release the rest of the TARP money before the end of the Bush presidency and Japanese strong action to inject liquidity in the market at the end proved insufficient to keep the Dow from closing down once again.

Assessment

Despite decisive action from governments, the market is still on distrust mode, with investors not taking any chances and cashing in on early gains.

Markets Will Receive Boost

Financial trends seem brighter in the Near Future. After the Senate rejection of the $14 billion bailout plan, the White House is now considering allowing the automakers to share some of the $700 billion earmarked for the banking system. In Europe, and after initial strong resistance from Germany, the EU approved a package of €200 billion to stimulate the economy.

Assessment:
The converging effects of this two plans should build some confidence in the market, prompting gains across all main indexes on Monday.
