The weekly chart for the Dow Industrial Average keys the week.

|Includes: DIA, GLD, QQQ, SPY, iShares 20+ Year Treasury Bond ETF (TLT)
Last week the Dow Industrial Average tested my quarterly risky level at 12,478 on Tuesday, and in addition the weekly chart shows overbought weekly MOJO and a down trend at 12,500 that connects the highs of May and July 2011. A breakout above this trend puts the focus on the other quarterly risky levels for the other major averages at; 1305.3 SPX, 2777 NASDAQ, 2422 NDX, 5448 Dow Transports, 829.03 Russell 2000 and 390.17 SOX. A weekly close below my annual pivot at 12,312 on the Dow Industrials provides the warning for first quarter stock weakness. The yield on the 10-Year is influenced by its 50-day simple moving average at 1.984 and my semiannual pivot at 1.903. Gold continues to have difficulty with its 200-day at $1627.9. Crude oil tested my zone of annual and semiannual risky levels at $103.58 and $104.84 last Wednesday and Thursday. The euro versus the dollar is trading around this month’s pivot at 1.2780 with my quarterly value level at 1.2499 and semiannual pivot at 1.2980.
 
10-Year Note – (1.961) My annual value level is 2.502 with my semiannual pivot at 1.903, and daily, weekly, quarterly, monthly and semiannual risky levels at 1.883, 1.885, 1.687, 1.409 and 1.385.
