Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) Leads As Major Market Indexes Retake This Key Support Level
The Dow Jones industrials climbed 0.3% and the S&P 500 added 0.1%, but the Nasdaq slipped nearly 0.2%. Small caps tracked by the Russell 2000 gave up 0.3%. Unofficial data showed lower volume on the NYSE and Nasdaq vs. Thursday.
The stock market’s finish was similar to the way it started the session: narrowly mixed. August nonfarm payrolls rose 130,000, well below forecasts for 163,000.
Still, the Dow Jones index rallied nearly 400 points, or 1.5%, for the week. The S&P 500 surged 1.7% and the Nasdaq composite, also 1.7%. That marked the Dow and S&P 500’s first close above the 10-week moving average in six weeks — five weeks for the Nasdaq. All three indexes are now less than 3% away from record highs.
Overall, the bias in prices is: Upwards.
The projected upper bound is: 27,586.29.
The projected lower bound is: 26,019.06.
The projected closing price is: 26,802.67.
A white body occurred (because prices closed higher than they opened).
During the past 10 bars, there have been 6 white candles and 4 black candles for a net of 2 white candles. During the past 50 bars, there have been 28 white candles and 22 black candles for a net of 6 white candles.
A doji star occurred (where a doji gaps above or below the previous candle). This often signals a reversal with confirmation occurring on the next bar.
Three white candles occurred in the last three days. Although these candles were not big enough to create three white soldiers, the steady upward pattern is bullish.

Relative Strength Index (RSI)
The RSI shows overbought (above 70) and oversold (below 30) areas. The current value of the RSI is 58.10. This is not a topping or bottoming area. A buy or sell signal is generated when the RSI moves out of an overbought/oversold area. The last signal was a buy 22 period(s) ago.
Commodity Channel Index (CCI)
The CCI shows overbought (above 100) and oversold (below -100) areas. The current value of the CCI is 167.This is an overbought reading. However, a signal isn’t generated until the indicator crosses below 100. The last signal was a sell 3 period(s) ago.
