The current up-trend in this daily chart of the Dow
was confirmed in mid-September when the Trend Oscillator
moved above the zero-line.
The Swing Histogram continues to peg the 100-line... evidence of the strong trend.
Additionally, the Speed Dots are well aligned. The first dot to drop off-line will forecast a price move down into an area of support between 13,900 and 13,750.
Finally, the Dow is meeting psychological resistance at the 14,000 mark. Is this a double top?
