Daily Chart

  • Dow's rejection at 55-day EMA at 17,544 yesterday followed by a negative day end closing at 17,492 levels indicates the bulls are likely to remain at the bay and the prices could drop to 17,330 levels.
  • However, futures indicate the index is likely to open higher around 17,570 levels.

  • Still, the bear grip is likely to stay intact as long as prices do not see a day end closing above head and shoulder neckline resistance at 17,640 levels.

  • Traders should watch out for a failure to hold above 17,539 levels could translate into a drop to 17,330 levels.
