This is the last potential downtrending Gann angle before the main top at 27312 and the all-time high at 27338.
A sustained move under 27064 will signal the presence of sellers. If this move generates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to extend into the major uptrending Gann angle at 26791. This angle, moving up at a rate of 64 points per day from the 25703 main bottom has been guiding the Dow higher since October 3 or for 17 trading sessions.
