The main trend is down according to the daily swing chart. The trend turned down late in the session when sellers took out the swing bottom at 33572. A move through 35000 will change the main trend to up.

The short-term range is 31951 to 35000. Its retracement zone at 33476 to 33116 is the primary downside target. The Dow is currently trading at the upper or 50% level at 33476.

Trader reaction to 33476 to 33116 will set the tone on Thursday. From a bullish perspective, we could also see a closing price reversal bottom following a test of this area.
If 33116 fails then prepare for an acceleration to the downside with the next major target coming in at 31951. But make adjustments if the Dow starts to come back into the retracement zone.
Markets seldom go straight down. The first leg down is usually long liquidation. Then there is a 50% to 61.8% snapback rally. Following this retracement, traders make the decision to go short or play for a new high.
