Dow Jones Drives to Fresh Six-Month-Highs After Jackson Hole

Dow Jones Drives to Fresh Six-Month-Highs After Jackson Hole

James Stanley, Senior Strategist

Dow Jones Talking Points:

- US stocks have continued their August rallies through the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium, and the Dow Jones Industrial Average is now trading at a fresh six-month high, eclipsing the resistance that was set in February of this year.

- The Dow just crossed the 26k psychological level, and this comes after a support visit to the 25k level just two weeks ago. Below, we look at strategy designed for bullish continuation in the index.

- DailyFX Forecasts on a variety of currencies such as the US Dollar or the Euro are available from the DailyFX Trading Guides page.

Dow Jones Jumps to Fresh Six-Month Highs

The rally in US stocks has continued through the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium, and at this point the Dow Jones Industrial Average is trading at a fresh six-month high; breaking out from and eclipsing the prior swing-high that had showed up in late February. While the 25,000 psychological level helped us to find support in the middle of August, the Dow has now crossed the 26k level as buyers continue to push ahead.

In our last article, we took a step back from motivation on the bullish approach out of fear for a larger pullback. We had previously looked at support plays off of the 25,695 level, but when buyers failed to show much strength after a test of that prior February high, coupled with two days of indecision, the prospect of a deeper pullback appeared likely.

That did not happen, as buyers continued to push ahead through the Jackson Hole Economic Symposium, and the bullish theme in US stocks remains. At this point, traders can continue to look for topside continuation as we move towards the all-time-high that was established in January of this year. The bullish extension of this move exposes another point of potential higher-low support, taken from last week’s swing-high at 25,886. This level has been added to the pre-existing support structure that we were looking for, and for traders looking to address US equities in an aggressive manner, this area can be utilized to look for that next stop of support.
