Looking at the daily chart, we notice that last week Dow Jones reversed back to the uptrend channel originated form the Feb 25 high last year at 26,241, see the chart (zoomed out). This week the Dow opened with a gap to the downside moving to a lower trading zone 28,162- 28,845.
Thus, a close below the low end opens the door for bears to press towards the vicinity of 27,345-19. Further close below this level could mean more bearishness towards 26,713. Yet, the weekly support levels underlined o the chart (zoomed in) should be considered as some traders could join/exit the market around these levels.
In turn, any failure in closing below the low end could mean bears’ reluctance to take charge. This could lead some of them to pull back reversing the price’s direction towards the high end of the zone. Further close above this level, might cause a rally towards the aforementioned Feb 12 high. That said, the daily resistance levels underscored on the chart should be kept in focus.
