Chart of the day: Bearish key reversal by Dow

The US Dow Jones Industrial Average was the subject of yesterday's Chart of the Day section. The neat uptrend was highlighted after the market had made a new all-time high on Wednesday. The Dow also posted a record high during Thursday. However, the market fell away following the news of the Malaysian airplane crash ending the session by plotting a ‘Peak' Key Day Reversal. The failed break to a new high could signal scope for a further slide towards uptrend support at the 50-day MA. The stoploss on the long held in the Average is beneath that line, at 16700.

Daily Comment:

The CBOE Volatility index has recorded a 32.2% loss. VIX rebounded strongly from the June/early-July floor near 10 yesterday, pointing to next chart resistance at the March/April ceiling near 18. The gauge measures implied volatility in the US S&P 500 sector, and ordinarily moves in the opposite direction to the index. At the time of writing, S&P futures are clawing back some of Thursday's losses, potentially reasserting the uptrend.


HK's Hang Seng index initially reacted to the early-July high today. As the session progressed, intraday support arrived at 23240.6, with the market adhering to the uptrend channel. A fall beneath the June reaction low at 22802.1 is required to damage the upward tendency towards the November peak near 24000. We remain long with the stop at 22700.


Japan's benchmark Nikkei 225 index has paused the uptrend, finding resistance near 15500. However, a fall beneath support around the 50-day moving average would be required to interrupt the uptrend towards the December peak at 16320.2.
