Dow Jones Index Technical Analysis
The Dow Jones Industrial Average returned to the “up channel” after a temporary decline last week.
Immediate support levels can be found with the 33,320 – 161.8% Fibonacci extensions, while major resistors can be found with the 34,920 – 200% Fibonacci extensions. The bearish MACD difference suggests that as the bullish momentum weakens, prices can become vulnerable to technical fixes.

Successful attempts may open the door to further upward possibilities by looking at previous highs of 31,180. The MACD index fluctuates near the neutral line, suggesting that the index may lack a clear direction in the short term.
