Dow Jones Technical Forecast
Technically, the index with its recent decline is trying to reap the profits of its recent rises in the short term. It is also trying to gain positive momentum that may help it to rise again. The index is trying to drain some of its clear overbought by the relative strength indicators, especially with the start of the emergence of a negative crossover in them. The positive support for its trading is above its simple moving average for the previous 50 days, but in front of that the dominant trend remains the corrective bearish trend in the short term along a slope line, as shown in the attached chart for a (daily) period.
Therefore, our expectations suggest the return of the index’s cautious rise during its upcoming trading, to target the pivotal and near resistance level 33,240, and this positive scenario remains under expectations as long as the support level 31,885 remains intact.
