On the daily timeframe DJI: D1 is rising after breaching above the resistance line. It has returned above 200-day moving average MA(200). These are bullish developments.

  • The Donchian channel indicates uptrend: it is tilted up.
  • The Parabolic indicator has formed a buy signal.
  • The MACD indicator is below the signal line and the gap is narrowing, which is a bullish signal.
  • The RSI oscillator is rising but has not reached the overbought zone.

We believe the bullish momentum will continue as the price breaches above the upper boundary of Donchian channel at 26452.7. This level can be used as an entry point for placing a pending order to buy. The stop loss can be placed below the fractal low at 25384.1. After placing the order, the stop loss is to be moved every day to the next fractal low, following Parabolic signals. Thus, we are changing the expected profit/loss ratio to the breakeven point. If the price meets the stop loss level (25384.1) without reaching the order (26452.7), we recommend cancelling the order: the market has undergone internal changes which were not taken into account.
