Dow Jones Industrial Average Chart

The Dow Industrials have been lagging both the NASDAQ Composite and S&P 500 Index.

But it looks like the Industrials are ready to play some “catch-up”.

Many are noting the underperformance along with Apple’s (AAPL) upcoming 4/1 stock split as reasons for further lagging.

However, the Industrials typically have a good correlation with the S&P 500. As well, the current pattern resembles a bullish Triangle pattern which is likely to be resolved higher before any stalling out period for the broader market.

I think it’s right to overweight the Dow Industrials and expect a push higher to test June highs into mid-August.
