Dow Jones Technical Analysis | Best three week rally since October 2022
BY Janne Muta|November 17, 2023
Dow Jones Technical Analysis – The US equity indices have seen a significant rebound with Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJ) recording its best three-week stretch since October 2022. This surge reflects a shift in investor sentiment from bearish to bullish, largely influenced by recent actions from the U.S. Treasury and the Federal Reserve.
The Treasury's decision to implement a smaller-than-expected increase in long-term debt auctions with no further interest rate hikes expected from the Fed, has created a more favorable investment environment.
These policy moves have positively impacted both stocks and bonds, pushing yields lower. Consequently, this has boosted investor confidence and optimism in the market, fostering a belief in the stability and potential growth of US equities.
Summary of This Dow Jones Technical Analysis Report:
- DJ has rallied to a market structure level (35,096) that resisted price advances in August. The market has rallied approximately 8% since the low four weeks ago in a move that has been the strongest 3-week rally since October 2022.
- If DJ can maintain this upside momentum above 35,096, we could see the market move to 35,576. Should the market trade sharply lower, we should look for signs of buying re-emerging in price action near the 34,410 level.
- The Treasury's decision to implement a smaller-than-expected increase in long-term debt auctions with no further interest rate hikes expected from the Fed, has created a more favorable investment environment.

Dow Jones Technical Analysis
Weekly Dow Jones Technical Analysis
DJ has rallied to a market structure level (35,096) that resisted price advances in August. The market has rallied approximately 8% since the low four weeks ago in a move that has been the strongest 3-week rally since October 2022.
No signs yet of rally slowing down
The strength of the up move has pushed the stochastic oscillator into the overbought area and has moved the market well above the moving averages. This leaves the DJ only 1.7% from the July high, while there are no signs of this rally slowing down in the weekly chart.
Daily Dow Jones Technical Analysis
The substantial move has mainly taken place over four or five trading days showing how the market participants are discounting the future cash flows that are much more valuable in the lower interest rate environment expected next year.
The Fed funds futures traders are currently pricing in four rate cuts for the next year, and the fund managers have been adjusting their portfolios accordingly.
Potential market moves
Our Dow Jones technical analysis suggests that if the market can maintain this upside momentum above 35,096, we could see the market move to 35,576. Should the market trade sharply lower, we should look for signs of buying re-emerging in price action near the 34,410 level.
Dow Jones Technical Analysis, 8h
The 8h chart reveals a minor support level at 34,814. Above this level, the market looks ready to test if it can keep on pushing higher by attracting more buying above the market structure level identified in the weekly Dow Jones technical analysis section above (every market needs new inflows to keep advancing).
If the 34,814 level is decisively broken, we could see a corrective move down to 34,410 or so. Traders should monitor if this level attracts buyers.
The next key risk events impacting this market:
- Existing Home Sales

Potential Dow Jones Market Moves
Dow Jones technical analysis indicates that if DJ can maintain upside momentum above 35,096, we could see the market move to 35,576. Should the market trade sharply lower, we should look for signs of buying re-emerging in price action near the 34,410 level.
