Chart of the Week: Dow Jones Trading Range

Posted By Barry Ritholtz On June 16, 2005 @ 10:36 am In Markets | Comments Disabled

After the recent run up, the Dow has been rangebound. This present consolidation represents a way for the market to catch its breate and reload afte rthe big move since the May bottom.

While I’d expect a little retracement and or back anbd filling, I suspect too many other people are hoping for that to happen. Therefore, wait until this range is resolved in either direction before putting too much money to work.

I plan to buy the breakout above 10,610 on a closing basis or if we drop below 10,400, then find an appropriate retracement (Fibonacci?)

I am watching the other major indices — Nasdaq and SPX — for confirmation. Its also worthwhile to keep an eye on the Dow Transports, given yesterday’s Baltic Dry Freight Index [2].
