Dow Jones Industrial Average rallied, suggesting a second higher low above primary support at 10600/10800. Expect a test of 11900/12000, but this does not mean the bear market is about to reverse. We are still in the early “denial stage” of the bear market, identified by sporadic bargain-hunting, high volatility and a general lack of direction. Declining volume indicates a lack of enthusiasm from buyers and sellers. Failure of primary support would change that, leading to a sharp fall to 10000*.
* Target calculation: 11000 – ( 12000 – 11000 ) = 10000
