Technical Analysis: Uptrend over for DJIA

DJIA unable to break above the trendline
The current uptrend is over for the Dow Jones Industrial Average. It will either move into a consolidation zone or correct in the range of 10%

DJIA Daily Chart

The uptrend that started in October is over but this does not mean the index will suddenly go into a downtrend. There are three options for a trend: up, down and sideways. And there are three time periods for a trend: major, intermediate and near-term. The #3 is a ubiquitous number in technical analysis.

Chart analysis of Copper: The near-term trend is down

There is a tentative break of the intermediate support level
The near-term trend for copper is down and the intermediate trend is sideways.  There is a tentative break of the $3.70 support level.

One Year Copper Chart

The intermediate trend for copper is sideways and the near-term trend is down. There was a tentative break of the $3.70 support level. In this case, I am using a 3% filter to confirm the break so I am looking for a close of $3.59 to move from tentative to confirmed.
