Dow Jones Technical Analysis – New lows in sight

Last week, we got some risk aversion in the market
as the tensions in the Middle East intensified. In fact, going into the weekend
the bearish momentum increased as ABC news reported
that the Israeli military got the “green light” to move into Gaza
whenever it was ready. Since we haven’t seen any ground offence over the
weekend, we might see a relief rally today.

Dow Jones Technical
Analysis – Daily Timeframe

On the daily chart, we can see that the Dow Jones
perfectly rejected the resistance zone
around the 34000 level where the had also the 61.8% Fibonacci retracement level
for confluence. The
sellers are targeting the 32597 level and that’s where we can expect the buyers
to step in more strongly with a defined risk below the level to position for a
rally back to the downward trendline.

Dow Jones Technical
Analysis – 4 hour Timeframe

On the 4 hour chart, we can see that after breaking
below the support around the 33500 level, where we had also the 50% Fibonacci
retracement level for confluence, the bearish momentum intensified and the price
overstretched to the downside as depicted by the distance from the blue 8 moving average. In such
instances, we can generally see a pullback into the moving average or some
consolidation before the next move.

Dow Jones Technical
Analysis – 1 hour Timeframe

On the 1 hour chart, we can see that from
a risk management perspective, the sellers would be better off waiting for the
price to pull back into the trendline where we can find the confluence with the
38.2% Fibonacci retracement level and the red 21 moving average. The buyers, on
the other hand, will want to see the price further breaking above the trendline
to increase the bullish bets into the 34000 resistance.

Upcoming Events

Tomorrow, we will get the US PMIs and the market might
not like bad figures given the fragile risk sentiment. On Thursday, we will see
the US Jobless Claims data with Continuing Claims recently showing some
softness in the labour market. Finally, on Friday, we will get the US PCE
report, which is not expected to change anything for the Fed at this time.
