Dow Futures: Weekly Price Action & Technical Analysis as on 2-OCT-2016

The Dow Futures closed the Quarterly bar with a wide wick above. The Monthly bar closed as a LH LL bar, in the middle after the last 3 Monthly bars didn’t manage to touch the upper Bollinger band. The Weekly bar closed on the 8 EMA short term sentiment line, but as a LH LL bar.

So far the correction covered almost 50% of the last bullish wave, the one that has followed the Brexit decision and made a new all time High eventually.

Currently the price action doesn’t look strong, but is not ready to decline fast – either. Most likely by the current price action, we are going to stay in the current Daily range 17822-18366 for another week – at least.

Taking out the Monthly Low at 17822 (as mentioned above it is not very likely to happen in the coming week) is a bearish setup to reach the 17200-17300 area, right on a clear downtrend line connected the previous all time High with the next Lower High around. It is also a 138.2% projection of the bearish wave that has been made so far.

The way down to that trigger point at 17822 – is full of obstacles and support levels, so in this case it is recommended to wait for the Monthly Low to be taken out before entering a bearish position in the Daily timeframe.
