Last week was an interesting one for the stock market. After a soft start on Monday the Dow Industrial Average had higher daily highs through Thursday, followed by Friday's decline.
The Dow Industrial Average ended the week up just 46 points. Last week's pivots came into play with the Dow moving above my weekly pivot at 12,907, but then ending the week below that level.
Thursday's highs were failed tests of my weekly risky levels at 1378.1 on the S&P 500 and 2976 on the Nasdaq. The weekly close was the third in a row below my annual pivot at 1363.2 on the S&P 500.
The weekly chart for the Dow Industrial Average ended last week positive with rising momentum (12x3x3 weekly slow stochastic) and a weekly close above the five-week modified moving average at 12,750.
The 200-week simple moving average is 10,726 with annual and semiannual value levels at 12,312 and 10,738, respectively.
The weekly pivot is at 12,913, and monthly, annual and quarterly risky levels at 13,473, 14,032 and 14,493, respectively.
