Dow Jones Industrial Average Struggling to Clear the 20,000 Hurdle

Dow Jones Industrial Average Struggling to Clear the 20,000 Hurdle

Jeremy Wagner, CEWA-M, Head of Education

Talking Points

-Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) finishes the first week of January near the visible 20,000 mark

-20,000 remains a reactionary zone that may suppress prices

-A break above 20,000 opens the door to 20,600 and 21,300

DJIA finished the first week of the new year on a strong note coming within a whisker of the highly visible 20,000 mark.

It appears as if DJIA just finished a small flat correct last week that saw prices rocket higher. There is some congestion of wave relationship showing up near 20,000. A successful break above 20,000 opens the door to higher levels towards 20,600 and 21,300.

If prices dip, the selloff appears to be within the context of an uptrend and is likely to be supported at lower levels. A dip towards 19,000-19,250 would not be that unusual. A break below 18,600 would be a cause for concern that another pattern is at play.
