Short Term Trend - Bullish 11700-11750

Long Term Trend - Bearish 9800 - 10000

Dow - Short Term Outlook

Well in Friday's update I stated that we would either go after the support line at 10800 or attack the resistance line in the 11,150 area. As you can see from today's action we chose the latter. Today we were able to close above the highs of last week's rally, which is critical for the bullish case. The next area of resistance is the high of 11,257.08. The volume was light today, which tells me that this bull run will more than likely be on light "summer volume". This lack of volume is going to be our major clue that the bear is right around the corner, hence the sub 10000 low coming in October.

For now, just sit tight and expect more follow through for the short term. Once we clear the blue resistance line below, expect the rally to get underway with earnest.



Dow - Long Term Outlook

The Dow is currently setting up a violent double bottom. Odds are we will make a minor penetration through the 10698 low (Actually occurred on Tuesday 7/18). Once we put this low in place, expect the Dow to make a new high for '06. This high will be in the 11,700 - 11,750 range. This high will be reached as early as August 14th and no later than September 1st. Once we reach this target area, the Dow will begin it's 8-year cycle low descent. This sell off will take us down to the sub 10,000 level. Expect the '04 low of 9,708.4 to be tested. This low will come on October 12th. Once this low is in place, the Dow will be ready to begin another multi-year impulsive move up that will take the Industrials to 12,000 and beyond.

Short Term Trend - Bullish 11700-11750

Long Term Trend - Bearish 9800 - 10000


Dow - Short Term Outlook

Today was pretty wild overall. The shorts woke up today with a huge smile on their face. The news out there was just horrible. Global conflict was spinning out of control, AMZN fell off a cliff and Boeing had a crash landing. So, naturally the market opened to the downside. Then during the middle of the day, we get news from the Fed and this sparks a rally. After all this back and forth, we ended flat. Today is one of those days that the price action is small, but the message is huge. The bulls basically told the world today, throw anything our way, we can take it.

Technically today, we closed on the downtrend line from the 11,670.19 high. Tomorrow will be a huge, because the bulls have the opportunity to make a run for it. The next level of resistance is the last swing high of 11,257.08.

Short Term Trend - Bullish 11700-11750
Long Term Trend - Bearish 9800 - 10000

Dow - Short Term Outlook

The Dow started out the day pretty strongly after the morning GDP numbers came across the tape showing the economy was slowing down. The bears had a brief moment of success, but it wasn't long before the Dow was up well over 100+ points. The Dow was up 3.2% for the week, representing the strongest percentage gain for the index since November 2004. If you recall from my earlier posts, I stated that once this rally got underway, it was going to shock everyone including myself. Well folks, I think that day has come.

Today we broke the blue trendline from the 11,670.19 top. We sat on this line for 2 days, before we finally decided that enough was enough today. Expect the Dow to attack the last swing high of 11,257.08 and expect this high to be breached. The action may get choppy in this area as many traders who took a hit in the recent sell off will be looking to get out even.

Dont know if this question is in the right place -perhaps someone can put me right , if not.
I want to try Martin Shoebidge's strategy for daytrading the Dow, and need real time chart with commodity channel index (cci) and rsi indicators.
Would be very grateful for any help.
Rob.

Short Term Trend - Bullish 11700-11750

Long Term Trend - Bearish 9800 - 10000

Dow - Short Term Outlook

Today was an inside day. Meaning the Dow was unable to take out the previous day's low or high. Inside days provide the market a chance to take a breather from a strong move. Continue to look for the Dow to surpass the 11,257.08 level.

As the undeniable Chartman would say be prepared for anything.

Long Term Trend - Bearish 9800 - 10000

Dow - Short Term Outlook

The Dow was up today from the start. We were able to maintain this up bias throughout the entire trading day. Towards the close, the bears attempted to take control, but the bulls staged a last minute bounce, which closed the Dow up 74 points on the day. I hate to assign to much importance to any one day, but the key thing I noticed is the pickup in volume to the upside from yesterday and our ability to close above yesterday's high. This gives us a clue that the bulls are in control and our next real test is the last swing high of 11,257.08.



For all you short-term trades out there, once we close above this green line, expect the market to begin accelerating to the upside.

I'm a newbie to technical analysis and I'm constantly amazed at how support/resistance and fibonacci levels seem to hold.
Take the Dow for example. It closed almost exactly at the green resistance line in OldSchoolWavers chart above - 11242.59.
Freaky.

Also - I'm not convinced about this being a double bottom, because we haven't seen increased volume on the advance from the 2nd trough, and the volume on the approach to the resistance line has also been unconvincing.
I'm not sure there's enough there to see us clear, and hold above, 11243

rf74nz, you are right about the volume...it will be light on this leg up in the market. This is one of our clues that this rally at some point will completely fall apart. But before we face the selling in a few weeks, the market will continue to climb this wall of worry.

I guess it depends on the jobs data out today. If it looks like your Fed's going to lift rates again to try keep inflation in check, that'll kill the rally any rally in its tracks. Conversely, if the jobs data is worse than expected, rates probably won't need to rise again so the market will rally.

IMHO - The US economy is in trouble - if interest rates go up, the housing market, which is already punch-drunk, will collapse, and with it the ability of the consumer to spend. If interest rates go down, the dollar will take a tumble and the price of all your imports'll soar, leading to yet more inflation. I can't see how either of those scenarios will play out well for the Dow.
