Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) Drops Third Straight, Gold Breaks Out
The Dow kicked off the holiday-shortened week with a third-straight loss. The blue-chip index finished down triple digits, gripped by Apple (AAPL) and the dire coronavirus warning against its guidance. The S&P 500 closed in the red as well, while the Nasdaq pared its losses to finish in the black, although tech stocks and Apple suppliers in particular felt the pinch today from the reduced outlook.
Against this backdrop, Wall Street’s “fear gauge,” the Cboe Volatility Index (VIX) logged its biggest one-day percentage gain since Jan. 31.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
The projected upper bound is: 29,851.12.
The projected lower bound is: 28,676.55.
The projected closing price is: 29,263.84.
A black body occurred (because prices closed lower than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 4 white candles and 6 black candles for a net of 2 black candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 28 white candles and 22 black candles for a net of 6 white candles.
Three black candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three black crows, the steady downward pattern is bearish.
