Dow Jones Futures Support and Resistance

Dow futures contracts rebound from Friday’s steep losses while keeping the positive short term momentum. On the upside the first hurdle is at 26,837 today’s high and then at 27,080 the high from October 17. A break above that level will open the way for a move up to all-time highs. On the flip side, Dow Jones benchmark first support stands at 26,715 today’s low and then at 26,555 the 100-day moving average, a break below might accelerate the move to the next support level at 26,083 and the 200-day moving average. The technical outlook for Dow Jones is bullish, and only a break below 26,500 will question the positive momentum.
