Dow Jones Industrial Average (.DJI) there is fear that the disease will cause a global economic slowdown

The Dow Jones Industrial Average, S&P 500 and Nasdaq Composite set all-time intraday highs on February 6. On Friday, the strength reversed somewhat as the spreading coronavirus hit the stock market once again. Now there is fear that the disease will cause a global economic slowdown.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average ended last week at 29,102 after setting its all-time intraday high of 29,408.05 on February 6. The weekly chart shifted back to being positive but overbought versus neutral a week ago. The Dow ended the week above its five-week modified moving average at 28,639. Its 12x3x3 weekly slow stochastic reading declined to 81.41 last week, down from 86.78 on January 31. This reading will likely fall below the overbought threshold of 80.00 this week. My quarterly value level is 27,432 with weekly, annual, monthly and semiannual risky levels at 29,500, 29,964, 30,059 and 30,361, respectively.
