Parocorp : Dow Jones: sideways to down session
|Updated 6/24 for Friday's market.|
Dow trades sideways to down.
From prior commentary, "... Looking at the 15 Minute Chart, you can see the index has formed a clear trend line across the lows of the up move off the lower range boundary. We expect a continued uptrend above this level at 10,410..."
The Dow traded quietly for most of the afternoon within a tight consolidation. It broke through the lower boundary midday and slowly drifted lower to the Close, ending the day over 35 points in the red.
Looking at the 15 Minute Chart, you can see the index has traded to the lower trend line of the up move off the lower range boundary. This trend line level intercepts with the upper wide range boundary that was broken yesterday at 10,440. Watch this level for a break or bounce. A bounce would lead a move back to the prior highs at 10,485, while a downside break there will fuel a move lower to support.
Short Term Dow
