DJI30 Prepares For Bearish Correction But Uptrend Expected Later In 2021

The Dow Jones Index (DJI or US30) showed a strong bearish weekly candle last week. The bearish wick plus the strong close near the low is indicating a potential retracement.

Let’s review the reversal charts and analyze how deep the bearish correction can go.

Price Charts and Technical Analysis

The DJI30 is unlikely to create a large bearish retracement. But the probability of some shallow correction has increased and is now the most likely scenario. Here are the main factors to consider:

  • Last week’s bearish weekly candle.
  • A rising wedge reversal chart pattern (green and orange lines)
  • The end of the wave 3 (purple) potentially.
  • A pullback is expected to be a wave 4 (purple), which is usually shallow.
  • The previous broken tops are now acting as potential support (blue box).

The most likely scenario is that price action will build a choppy and shallow correction to either the 23.6% or 38.2% Fibonacci retracement level. 

The uptrend is expected to continue later in 2021 after the retracement has been completed. 

  • Price action could either use the 23.6% Fibonacci for the uptrend bounce (green arrows). 
  • Or use the 38.2% Fib for the uptrend (dotted blue arrow).
  • Only a deep retracement below the 50% Fib places the uptrend on hold (yellow button) or below the 78.6% invalidates it (red circle).

On the 4 hour chart, price action seems to have completed a wave 5 (orange). The current decline is probably the first price swing of the wave 4 (purple).

  • The decline looks like a wave A (pink).
  • The current retracement could be a wave B (pink).
  • An ABC (grey) pattern is expected in wave B (pink).
  • The main resistance levels are the Fibs and previous tops (orange box)/

The alternative scenario is if a bear flag chart pattern emerges (grey arrows). For the moment though, a larger push lower is likely as long as price respects the previous top.
