DJIA Daily Bar Chart

The major trend is up, the intermediate trend is sideways, and the near-term trend is down. The RSI shows that the Dow is currently oversold and maybe due for a bounce. Can a bounce translate into a new near-term uptrend? The support and resistance levels are identified on the above chart.

Technical Analysis: Dundee REIT (D.UN:TSX)

Support and resistance levels for Dundee REIT
A daily candlestick chart for Dundee REIT showing the support and resistance levels.

Dundee REIT (D.UN:TSX) Daily Chart

Dundee Reit has been one of my core holdings over the past two years. And I was fortunate to own a significant position in Whiterock REIT when it was acquired by Dundee. The major trend is still up for Dundee but it will have to break resistance of $37.50, the March high, to continue the uptrend. The May 3 earnings release could be the catalyst for the breakout above resistance. If not, there will be a test of the $35.00 support level.

Reference my last chart analysis for Dundee REIT which was posted on May 9, 2011.

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.
