State of Dow Jones - Calendar Week 41 2021 Welcome to the second episode of the blog post series "State of Dow Jones", where we look at the leading US stock index from different perspectives and try to determine how solid the current development is.

The McClellan Oscillator failed to establish itself above the zero line for more than 3 consecutive days. One could speculate that this reflects some kind of weakness and that we will see a couple of days with negative values there, supporting my theory from above that we might have a pull back for this index.
