16:23 EDTMSOn The Fly: Closing Wrap
Stocks began the session in positive territory, but the major averages were unable to hold their early gains. Lackluster earnings reports, the falling price of oil, and lowered global growth expectations appeared to be too much to overcome after a three day holiday weekend. The Dow led the way lower and had losses of more than 100 points before reversing and slowly paring its losses. Late in the day the averages made it back to positive ground, as investors await the next round of earnings due out after the close. ECONOMIC EVENTS: In the U.S., the NAHB homebuilder sentiment index fell to 57 in January, missing expectations for it to hold steady at 58. In China, Q4 GDP growth of 7.3% came in slightly better than expected, though that puts the nation's 2014 GDP growth at 7.4%, which was the lowest reported in 24 years. Of note, the International Monetary Fund cut its forecast for global growth in 2015 to 3.5% and in 2016 to 3.7%, which were both revised down by 0.3% relative to the organization's October 2014 outlook. COMPANY NEWS: Shares of Johnson & Johnson (JNJ) led all decliners on the Dow Jones Industrial Average with a drop of $2.75, or 2.64%, to $101.29 after its Q4 earnings were nearly in-line and its FY15 outlook failed to spur buying of the stock... Morgan Stanley (MS) declined 14c, or 0.4%, to $34.75 after the firm became the latest in the financial space to report headline earnings that missed expectations. MAJOR MOVERS: Among the notable gainers was Smith & Wesson (SWHC), which rose $1.65, or 16.47%, to $11.67 after the gunmaker increased its financial guidance and said it has seen recent, positive trends in the primary indicators it uses to assess its business and the consumer firearm market. Also higher was Orbitz Worldwide (OWW), which jumped 79c, or 8.62%, to $9.95 after Bloomberg reported that the online travel agency is working with an adviser to contact potential buyers and has drawn interest from private-equity funds and "other Internet companies." Among the noteworthy losers was FXCM (FXCM), which plunged $11.03, or 87.33%, to $1.60 after the stock reopened following the company struck a $300M rescue agreement with Leucadia (LUK) and gave further details on that deal over the weekend. Also lower were shares of Redbox owner Outerwall (OUTR), which fell $15.72, or 20.21%, to $62.05 after the company announced that its CEO had stepped down. INDEXES: The Dow rose 3.66, or 0.02%, to 17,515.23, the Nasdaq gained 20.46, or 0.44%, to 4,654.85, and the S&P 500 advanced 3.13, or 0.15%, to 2,022.55.

12:10 EDTMSMorgan Stanley has an active bearish pattern ahead of earnings
There is an active bearish head and shoulders pattern on the daily chart that was confirmed on a move below $35.50. Ahead of earnings the question is whether news will halt and reverse the pattern, or accelerate its completion. If the news is as bearish as traders currently expect, the pattern may continue until it reaches completion at the $31 area. If the new is more bullish than the existence of the pattern itself suggests, then a move above $35.50 would neutralize the pattern. Upside objectives to watch would be at $36.13, and $38.09.
