Dow Jones Technical Forecast

Technically, the index with its recent decline is trying to reap the benefits of its recent short-term increases. He’s also trying to gain some positive momentum that could help him back up. The index is trying to drain some of its clear overbought by relative strength indicators, especially with the beginning of a negative crossover emerging in them. The positive support for its trading is above its previous 50-day simple moving average, but ahead of that the dominant trend remains the short-term corrective downtrend along a slope line, as shown in the attached chart for a (daily) period.

Therefore, our expectations suggest a return to the cautious rise of the index at its next quotationto target the pivot level and close to the 33,240 resistance, and this positive scenario remains below expectations as long as the 31,885 support level remains intact.
