Almost a Month ago I wrote a post about how the dow had yet to bottom. See: The Dow Jones Industrial Index has not yet bottomed ,at that time the index was at 11,842. A week later I followed up with a prediction that the Dow Jones Industrial would bottom at 10,800 (See:Prediction: Dow Jones Industrial bottoms at 10,800.)
On July 15,2008 the Dow Jones Index fell to 10,827 to make a new 52-week low. That new low came very close to my prediction and soon after it began rebounding. Since the weekend came and I found some time to go and revisit the chart for the dow I now think that the index has bottomed out and should begin to climb.
I believe the market will begin recovering because of a few reasons.
1. 10,800 is a very strong support zone going back to 2006
2. Oil prices have recently fallen from $146 to $128 (maybe that bubble is deflating)
3. The chart shows that the sellers are moving out and more buyers are beginning to take over (green and red lines almost crossing. Green is buyers, red is sellers)
4. At the end of the chart is the amount of money being put in the market. Since mid May it was in a downtrend which meant people were taking money out of the market and now it has broken out of the trend.
As you will see in the chart below however, today’s action is within the downturn trend line and it needs to close above 11,500 or we might not have hit recovery period just yet.
Without further adieu i present to you… the Dow Jones Industrial Recovery Chart.
At this point i have invested in stock symbol (DDM) which has the top 30 Dow Jones Companies.
It goes mostly parallel to the Dow Jones Industrial Index. You can check out my current holdings at my Covestor page.
