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

Mini break for NASDAQ 100 - for now

Mini break for NASDAQ 100 - for now

The NASDAQ 100 took a mini break from chasing new record highs and is now trading within a narrow range.

The technical chart with the simple Envelopes reveals that the index is no longer considered as overheated and the RSI confirms this.

The distance to the SMA 20 remains high but declined a little bit.

One earlier high at 15447 serves as a level of confidence while one level above, at
15526, proved itself as a level of support, setting the lower limit for the current trading range.
As long as the index remains above 15 447 on the daily chart, there is nothing to worry about.

Talking of trading range - the hourly chart of the NASDAQ 100 with modified Evenlope settings gives a nice impression of the current range where a mini break and mini consolidation are taking place right now.

I think there is not much to add at this point - let's see if the NASDAQ 100 will leave this range downwards or upwards.

Looking only at the technical chart, the index is still moving within a strong upside trend with a nice distance to the SMA 20. Nothing to worry about (yet).

Market Breadth Chart for the NASDAQ 100 

On our market breadth chart we've been including the Envelope bands for quite some time now. The index still trades within the upper band, being slightly overheated, but this state is wearing off already (and remember, the Envelope bands also advance and usually catch up with the price at some point).

The Advance Decline Line for NaSDAQ 100 follows the price - no clear divergences here.
Advanced vs. Declined for NASDAQ 100 is no longer at an extreme value and reasonable for this trading day.
The McClellan Oscillator for the NASDAQ 100 is below the zero line with a relatively low value.

The McClellan Summation index stopped to rise and declined again. I am sorry for the spike in the data here (see third last bar at this indicator). I have to check what went wrong there.

At the moment, market breadth data reflects that the NASDAQ 100 stopped to advance rapidly and took a small break. I don't see any warn signs here.
