Dow Jones Price Outlook:

Dow Jones Forecast: Industrial Average Succumbs to Selling Pressures

The Dow Jones suffered another day of declines as selling pressures extended from high-flying tech stocks to some key Industrial Average members. While Apple and Microsoft continued to be weak spots, a fresh FIA investigation into the 787 Dreamliner placed Boeing in the spotlight, seeing it suffer similar declines. Together, weakness in some leading technology members and a key blue chip member has seen the DJIA fall to an ascending trendline for support.

Suffice it to say, the Dow Jones may be at a crossroads near 27,400 where another red session could see a technical breach allow for a continued extension lower. On the other hand, a successful recovery at this juncture could see the Dow attempt to claw back recent losses. Either way, the Dow will have to negotiate continued tech weakness as there has been little indication FANGMAN members have regained investor confidence.

With that in mind, the Dow Jones appears vulnerable to further declines, but the Nasdaq 100 should continue to outpace the Industrial Average. Therefore, looking to capitalize on the potential divergence between the US indices could create trading opportunities in the shorter-term.
