The DJIA erased most of last week losses, but the recovery was not enough to confirm a Northward continuation, given that in the daily, the rally stalled right below a Bearish 20-Day SMA, currently at 17,779, as the technical indicators have posted a modest recovery, but remain within negative territory.
