Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA): Technical Chart Update

Similar to other major U.S. stock market indexes, the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) has been moving higher amidst a considerable amount of market chop. As we near the end of May and the end of a seasonally favored market period, I thought it would be good to update readers on the current technical state of the Dow Jones Industrial Average.

On October 15th, 2014 the Dow Jones Industrials (DJIA) made a low of 15855.12. Using old school trend line charting, we see the following:

  • The uptrend was tested and held on February 2nd, 2015.
  • The uptrend was tested and held several times until April 30th, 2015.
  • In the next 17 trading sessions, price closed below the uptrend line 8 times but never violated or even pulled back to Fibonacci support levels.
  • The current projected target is 18583.84.
  • Key support levels reside at 17663.2 and 17515.59.

Currently, the high of May 19th, 2015 of 18351.36 is a level that I’ll be watching closely for a clean break and close above. Otherwise, traders would be wise to watch their support.
