Is the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) moving lower as a result of the market’s large scale declines, or is it moving lower because of a fundamental weakness in the market? These are very important questions for an investor looking to buy and sell to improve his or her portfolio. The data released today by the Dow shows some disturbing news about what happens next with the markets.
First, let’s look at the chart that many of us have seen, often in the form of price outlooks and charts. This chart displays the daily price movement in the stock market that may not represent an upward trend, as indicated by the red and blue lines. However, as the DJIA dropped below support levels on the horizontal axis, the line broke out to the right to create a bearish signal.
In most cases, this is an indication that the market will continue to drop for a while, especially if the index’s value is low. With the loss of support, the market will continue to move lower until a break above the support level in this area is reached. At that point, we will observe a period of rebound that will restore the strength in the market and make it profitable to purchase.
It is also interesting to note the similarities between the market’s prices and price outlooks. Here is a look at the prices versus the index outlook. We can see that the market moves more sideways and up and down, suggesting that it is less predictable than the market outlook.
Of course, we should take a look at the past and current market condition to determine whether a long-term uptrend is possible. One area of the chart that is showing an upward trend is in the areas above and below the breakouts. As we move into the open, this is where many investors are buying in anticipation of the breakouts, which may occur from either resistance or support.
Another area of the chart that we need to consider is where the upward pullback begins. It could be where the index reverts back to the long-term downtrend line, however, this is not a common area of the market. Usually, an upward break is only a temporary solution until a stronger point of support or resistance is met.
Why is the DJIA moving lower? The numbers indicate that the market will probably continue to decline unless we see another strong pullback that pushes the index over the resistance level. We are also seeing that several other indicators are diverging from the long-term uptrend. For example, as the U.S. dollar weakens, it makes sense that the market will have a harder time holding above support levels.
The U.S. economy is weak and no doubt the markets are acting accordingly. If this continues, it may be difficult to sustain the gains made in the markets. As such, we would be wise to keep the entry points closed until we can see a continuation of a strong market.
Opening a trade now will provide more profit than waiting until later. If we wait too long, we may miss an opportunity to capitalize on a strong market. This is especially true in areas of the market that have high levels of resistance or support.
So, instead of relying on price outlooks, traders can now look at the strengths and weaknesses of the market in conjunction with these indicators. We can now see trends in both strength and weakness, which help us determine the direction of the market moving forward.
We may be able to identify areas of strength and weakness in the market as a result of the current downtrend. Because of this, we may be able to start a new trend to profit from the market’s continued downward trend.
How well you can identify the strengths and weaknesses of the DJIA is dependent upon how well you study this kind of information. In the end, the only thing that really matters is that you buy at the right time and sell when the prices are declining. With the DJIA now moving lower, it may be time to take advantage of this new market information.
