The E-Mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures contract closed lower last week. The weakness was attributed to trade concerns and a drop in bank stocks following the Fed’s interest rate and monetary policy decisions. Underpinning the market was a solid performance by shares of Apple. The Dow also posted an inside move which tends to indicate investor indecision and impending volatility. It could also indicate a transition from uptrend to downtrend, but it’s too early to tell.

For the week, December E-mini Dow Jones Industrial Average futures settled at 26476, down 278 or -1.04%.

Bullish Scenario

A sustained move over 26302 will indicate the presence of buyers. If this creates enough upside momentum then look for investors to make a run at 26820 or a new all-time high.

Bearish Scenario

A sustained move under 26302 will signal the presence of sellers. This could trigger a steep break into the next minor pivot at 25895. This is followed closely by a steep uptrending Gann angle at 25792 and a minor bottom at 25784.

If 25784 is taken out then look for the selling to continue into the main retracement zone at 25410 to 25077.
