Wall Street 30 Outlook

Renewed vigour has returned to Wall Street and we might be set for another week filled with upward momentum on the Indices. The Wall Street 30 is at a breakout point and if the Trade negotiations fundamentals pan out coupled with the technical setup the Dow might just push higher to recent highs.

Some technical and fundamental points to look out for:

  • The price action is still well above its major moving averages which supports the move higher moving forward.
  • Ascending Triangle pattern forming on the wall Street 30 which might support a breakout from the 26298-resistance level.
  • The price action is currently testing a major technical resistance level at 26298 and if this level does not hold we might see a push higher to 26824.
