Watch These 4 Horrible Charts within the Dow Jones Industrials Index | RRG Charts

<- Advertisement ->



  • $INDU chart resting at double help and more likely to bounce larger
  • Outperform the index by avoiding 4 shares

The Relative Rotation Graph above, which reveals the rotations contained in the DJ Industrials index, displays an evenly-spread-out universe of shares. That is primarily the results of $INDU being a price-weighted index, versus the S&P 500, which is cap-weighted. The distinction in weight between the biggest and the smallest inventory within the universe is, due to this fact, a lot smaller, which makes the RRG extra evenly distributed.

DJ Industrials

The worth chart of the DJ Industrials index reveals the market at a vital stage/juncture.

First, the marginally down-sloping former resistance stage runs over the main highs since early 2022. That line was damaged upward in June/July, and the market is testing that stage as help as we converse. Secondly, the angled help line connects the lows since October 2022. That line is at the moment being examined for the fifth time.

The quantity of touchpoints on these development traces makes them very legitimate market ranges to be watched, IMHO.

A fast evaluation of this value chart tells me that:

  • The DJ Industrials index remains to be in a rhythm of upper highs and better lows, which began out of the low in March.
  • The previous resistance line working over the highs since March 2022 is at the moment being examined as help.
  • The rising help line out of the October 2022 lows is at the moment being examined.
  • As described above, each help ranges are actually coming collectively round 34k, making that space an essential “double” help stage/space.

All in all, because of this a brand new low being put into place on this space ought to be seen as a shopping for alternative for one more leg up throughout the present uptrend. Particularly with double help so shut, these kind of setups present good danger/reward ratios.

The primary hurdle and goal that is available in sight on the upside is the horizontal stage at 35.5-35.7.

Again to the RRG

The RRG above can enormously assist choose shares throughout the DJ Industrials index which can be possible to assist push the index larger. BUT, for this event, I wish to have a look at which shares higher be prevented.

The very first thing I do in a primary cross is to toggle via the index members by highlighting the road within the desk beneath the graph, both by clicking with the mouse or utilizing the up-and-down arrow keys to browse the universe. The ensuing tails are plotted on the RRG beneath. Bear in mind, I’m on the lookout for shares more likely to UNDERperform the index.

These are the weekly tails. However to essentially get to the purpose and discover actionable securities (to keep away from), I deliver this group to a every day RRG.

On this RRG, I do one other cross to search out the shares on a damaging trajectory on each the weekly and the every day timeframes.

Right here is the outcome.

As at all times, the proof is within the value.


This week, DIS is sinking via essential horizontal help close to 85. There may be yet one more essential help stage left, round 80. This was a low in March 2020 and in Feb 2016.

The break beneath 85 is already fairly damaging, however when 80 additionally offers means, there shall be a brand new scary curler coaster trip in Disneyland.


INTC rotated from main into weakening on the weekly RRG, and the every day tail simply crossed into lagging and continued to maneuver decrease on the RS-Ratio scale after a brief momentum hiccup.

On the value chart, INTC recovered from its steep decline after breaking horizontal help in June. Nonetheless, the rally that emerged from the October and Feb lows at 25 has examined previous help close to 37 as resistance twice and failed to interrupt larger.

Breaking the newest low close to 27 will full a double high fashioned towards main overhead resistance, whereas relative power is fading (RRG traces are rolling over). This can possible set off extra draw back and a take a look at of the realm close to 25 once more.


This week, NKE is breaking beneath one other main help stage close to 102. This occurred after NKE had already accomplished a double high at 129 by breaking the in-between low at 115.

This week’s break decrease additionally marks the break from a small consolidation/continuation formation, which provides to the proof for extra weak point forward. With no intermediate help in sight, the subsequent significant stage, and due to this fact the primary goal for NKE, is just discovered on the October 2022 low, simply above 80.

Which means roughly 20% draw back danger, with solely 3% upside potential (again to the breakout stage).


WBA is already been underperforming the DJ industrials for years. However the current break beneath a serious horizontal help stage at 28.50 provides new gas for the trip’s lower cost and relative efficiency. This break in value, mixed with the horrible relative power, makes WBA the worst inventory contained in the DJ industrials index.

How unhealthy the injury actually is is finest seen on a month-to-month chart.

WBA is breaking to its lowest stage in a decade. I do not want a calculator to know that that is one large underperformer in comparison with the S&P 500 over the identical interval.


The technical outlook for the DJ Industrials index stays sturdy, so long as the index manages to carry above double help close to 34k on the value chart.

By underweighting or avoiding DIS, INTC, NKE, and WBA, it ought to be attainable to outperform the index with very restricted danger. A possible technique to realize this might be to purchase Diamonds (DIA) and create draw back publicity through choices or straight brief gross sales for these 4 shares.
