DOW JONES has formed a 2018/2020 type bottom.

TVC:DJI   Dow Jones Industrial Average Index
The Dow Jones Industrial Average Index (DJI) made the first bullish step as we outlined last week by breaking above its 1D MA50 (yellow trend-line) and is currently just below the 1D MA100 (red trend-line) and 1W MA100 (green trend-line). In the process it has made the exact same build up as the COVID bottom and subsequent recovery but let's see into this in more detail.

First and foremost, it achieved this week the 1W MACD Bullish Cross. It is the first such formation below the 0.00 level since May 18 2020 and January 28 2019. Those were the Bullish Crosses that followed the COVID crash and U.S. - Chine trade war bottoms respectively and took the index into the early recovery steps. On top of that, it broke above a Lower Highs sequence on the 1W RSI that was holding since November 01 2021.

Moving on to the MA periods, we can see than during the COVID crash, when the 1D MA50 crossed below the 1W MA100, the bottom was formed. That is also the case with the current correction as the same 1D MA50/ 1W MA100 Bearish Cross has so far formed a low on the June 13 1W candle. Back again to the COVID crash, when the 1D MA100 crossed below the 1W MA100, the index was consolidating preparing for a strong rise above the 0.786 Fibonacci retracement level. On today's correction, we are just after this Bearish Cross, with the index already on two straight (very strong) 1W green candles.

We can see that even in January 2019, the index had a similar consolidation within the 1D MA50 and 1D MA100 before a break above the latter pushed Dow Jones aggressively above the 0.786 Fib. In both sequences, all this happened after a 1W MACD Bullish Cross (as we have today), while the 1D MA50 was holding as a Support.

Even though the pattern since the start of the year is a Channel Down within a Bearish Megaphone, with the 1W MA50 (blue trend-line) located exactly on the Megaphone's Lower Highs (top) trend-line, we do have an excellent framework to work projections based on MA break-outs, modelled out of the similar 2018/ 2020 patterns.

This time the 0.786 Fib is around 35250 and this is our target for the end of Q3.
