Tuesday’s Technical Outlook for the DJIA (.DIA)
US stocks closed higher Monday led by tech stocks that bounced after last week’s losses.
But Apple’s stocks ended 0.1% lower, posting the 8th straight loss in a row, the longest losing streak since July 1998 finishing at:
The DJIA rose 117 pts, or 0.66%, to close at 17,891.16. The S&P 500 gained 16 pts, or 0.78%, to 2,081.43, the NAS Comp advanced 42 pts, or 0.88%, to end at 4,817.59.
The DJIA’s move stalled just below its 20-Day MA, in the chart, the technical indicators turned slightly higher within Bearish territory, presenting for the most a Neutral to Bearish stance.
Shorter term, the 4 hours shows that the index is now above a Bearish 20-Day SMA, as the technical indicators bounced from oversold, but remain below their mid-lines, suggesting the risk is towards the Southside, particularly if the benchmark index is unable to advance beyond Monday’s intra-day high at 17,912.
