Dow Jones Extends Support Bounce From 25k: Is the Retracement Complete?

Dow Jones Extends Support Bounce From 25k: Is the Retracement Complete?

Dow Jones Talking Points:

- The Dow Jones Industrial Average is jumping after a support test at the psychological level of 25,000 yesterday morning. This was the third area of support we looked at over the past week, but prices have quickly jumped back-up to fresh short-term highs, suggesting that the recent retracement has completed and the door remains open for bullish continuation strategies in the index.

- The big question around the Dow Jones and, bigger-picture, US equity indices is whether we see another push up to towards highs set earlier in the year. In the Dow, a number of resistance levels remain should a deeper push to fresh yearly highs continue in the weeks ahead.

Dow Jones Jumps After Support Test at 25,000

US stocks are getting back to their bullish ways after a retracement drove pullbacks across American indices over the past week. After setting a fresh five-month high just a week-and-a-half ago a retracement started to develop that pushed the Dow Jones Industrial Average through multiple short-term supports. We’d previously looked at prices posing another test of the ‘s2’ zone we had looked at a couple of weeks ago, and as we warned, a deeper retracement may follow as price action was finding resistance at old support.

That deeper retracement took place as Tuesday price action led into a deeper decline on Wednesday morning. The Dow Jones Industrial Average found support at the zone we’d looked at that populated around the 25,000 psychological level, and bulls have been off to the races ever since, pushing prices up to a fresh short-term high.

With short-term price action pushing up to fresh near-term highs, the door would appear open for bullish continuation as the prior retracement appears complete. At this stage, traders can scroll down to an hourly chart to look for shorter-term support levels that can keep the door open for bullish continuation strategies. We’d previously looked at support in the area around the 14.4% Fibonacci retracement of the post-Election move, and that’s at 25,370, and this can be connected to a group of swing highs from Tuesday to form a zone of potential support.

Below that, we have the same ‘s2’ zone that we’d previously looked at that runs from the approximate 25,163 up to 25,218, and below that we have the most recent area of support from the 25k psychological level.

On the target side of bullish plays in the Dow, the big question is whether we can push up to fresh five-month highs. That turn last week took place around 25,695, and just above that we have the February swing-high at 25,825. If we’re able to take out those two levels, potential resistance remains around 25,944 and again just above the 26k level at 26,064.
