State of Dow Jones - Calendar Week 41 2021

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. Technical Chart for Dow Jones Every "State of Dow Jones" blog post should start with the technical chart, so here we go (created on tradingview.com): The Dow Jones overcame the old falling highs and the important resistance at 25 000, now trading at 35 294 points. The index is trading above its SMA 20 again and even went into the upper Envelope band. This means the Dow is slightly overheated and it is likely that the index will show a small pull-back before rising again. The RSI is at 60, three trendlines were identified and crossed during the last trading days. The technical chart provides us with enough confidence to say that the correction might be over and the outlook is neutral, or maybe even slightly bullish. Marke

Dow Jones below the SMA20 again

Dow Jones below the SMA 20 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 tradingview.com   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

NASDAQ 100 following a strong trendline

NASDAQ 100 following a strong trendline I've been covering the NASDAQ 100 multiple times during the last days as you've seen. The reason for this is that this leading tech index shows an incredible strength despite the Tapering discussions and the various risks which emerged during the last weeks. Together with you, I want to understand where the chances and risks are for this index. NASDAQ 100 Chart Source: tradingview.com The image above shows a simple NASDAQ 100 chart with the leading trendlines. As you can see, there is a corridor limited by a supporting trendline and a line which might be a resistance line. The index has touched this upper line multiple times and has been trading just beneath it for four days in a row. I believe that this trendline is of great importance and chances are high that the NASDAQ 100 will not cross it soon (just my personal opinion). At the moment, this trendline also crosses the upper border of the Envelopes, so there is even another resistance

Envelopes Indicator now available for all stock indices

Envelopes Indicator now available for all stock indices About the Envelopes indicator and how we implemented it The Envelopes indicator is a very simple, but powerful way to determine if an index is overheated or oversold (if someone knows the correct opposite of the word "overheated" please let me know..). Basically, the Envelopes are shifted copies of an SMA. On https://www.advance-decline.net we use the SMA20, which is a fast and short-term simple moving average, and then add or subtract a few percentage points (our formula is a bit more complex, but you get the point). This provides two lines - the lower and the upper Envelope line, with each of them having a fixed distance to the middle, the SMA20. From our experience we know that the price tends to oscillate between the upper and the lower Envelope lines. Those lines act as a first line of support or resistance, maybe let's call them "soft resistance and support". Usually, the price will bounce at this li

BitPandas BCI 10 Crypto Index: What's happening right now? After a strong weekend for crypto, some major currencies seem to take a break from the rally. The BCI 10 Crypto Index represents 10 crypto currencies and might help us to understand: What's happening right now?   Before I start writing, let's look at the BCI10 Crypto Market Breadth data:   Source: https://www.advance-decline.net/crypto-indices/bci-10/ Dissecting the Crypto Market Breadth Data Some would say crypto was overheated a bit after the last strong weekend.  The McClellan Oscillator dances with its zero line, while the McClellan Summation Index seems to have created a top. Values for this indicator are very high, comparable to the golden times from the beginning of the year. The percentage of BCI 10 members trading above their SMA 50 is very high. The percentage of BCI 10 members trading above their SMA 100 is very high. The percentage of BCI 10 members trading above their SMA 200 is continuously rising and

  BitPandas BCI 10 Crypto Index Market Breadth for 19.08.2021 Honestly, I thought Crypto currencies would suffer from more weakness during the last trading days. But the BCI10 and its components show an incredible strength. Market breadth data for the BCI10, however, shows a small decline for the percentage of members trading above their SMA 50. This is usually a sign that the positive trend lost some momentum. The McClellan Oscillator has been negative two days in a row, but is already showing tendency to move back to the zero line. The McClellan Summation Index is still strong.   b
