State of Dow Jones - Calendar Week 42 2021

Hi folks! Welcome to another part of the blog post series State of Dow Jones for Calendar Week 42 2021 Part three already. This week has been incredible for those that invested into the Dow Jones. But how healthy is the current price development and what's the outlook?   Technical Chart for Dow Jones Every "State of Dow Jones" blog post should start with the technical chart, so here we go (created on   The Dow Jones managed to trade above its SMA 20 and also overcame the turquoise trendline / flag which happened to be at the 35 000 resistance level, which became a support shortly afterwards. The index only knew one direction during this week - upwards. The current price movement stopped a few points above the old all-time high and within the upper Envelope band. On the daily time frame, the index now looks slightly overheated. For now, the old all-time high around 35 631 holds, but it wouldn't be a big surprise if there was a small pull-back before t

Dow Jones below the SMA20 again

While the NASDAQ 100 loves to create new all-time highs, the Dow Jones seems to be eager to test its current trend range.

Dow Jones: Technical situation

Technical chart for Dow Jones created at
The Dow Jones fell through the SMA 20 line (which supported the price for more than 10 trading days), ignored the support at 35150 (see pink line in the chart) and stopped at a previously tested trendline within the bigger trend channel. 
The next support is located at 34849. Since the price stopped several times at this level, it might be as well considered as a strong support area.
If the current phase of weakness should not grow into a phase of correction, it is crucial that this level will hold. After that, the limiting trendline (currently at 34540) and the lower border of the simple Envelopes (34256) could be the next targets. 

From a technical point of view, the Dow Jones has potential for  0,7% - 1,5% more decline.

Market Breadth Data for the Dow Jones

The Dow Jones is now moving towards the lower Envelope bands but is far away from being oversold.

The Advance Decline Line for Dow Jones follows the price movements, I can see no big divergences here.

The Advanced vs. Declined data for Dow Jones reached a negative extreme again, which means chances could be high that during the next trading day, there is a bounce into the opposite direction.

The McClellan Oscillator for Dow Jones reached the lowest value in our historical data, which doesn't have to mean much since we only have data for the last 30 trading days or so. Still, it mirrors the short-term weakness of this index and some might be tempted to buy the small dip ;)Maybe wait one more day or at least wait for the start of the next trading day to determine the next development.

The McClellan Summation Index for Dow Jones has been below the zero line for 8 days in a row and reached extreme values compared to our other historical data. This also reflects the current phase of the index, but also gives a small sign of hope for those who are bullish for the Dow Jones since it is unlikely for this indicator to take a deeper dive (at least not much deeper). The market in general is too strong and I guess there will be enough buyers to prevent a greater correction.
