2014 is around the corner and we are still bullish on the financial markets since 2012. Don’t stop the party. Let us study their weekly charts shall we?
DOW JONES INDUSTRIAL AVERAGE –Yankee Bulls Still In the Dow
Contrary to popular belief, the Dow still poised to continue it’s 2014 yearly bull run. This is simply because the Dow is still trading above 14,413 support zone (red moving support). In addition, the Dow will continue to trend higher especially when Weekly MACD also showing short term price rally signal.
That being said, there will be ups (rallies) and downs (corrections) in any market. If the Dow is tired and ONCE Weekly MACD forms a price correction signal, it could have a price correction to the around 15,114 support zone. A healthy market correction to around 14,413 could happen if 15,114 support zone is also violated. Keep in mind, the Dow will still be in a yearly bull run mode as long as it is above this 14,413 support zone (red moving average).
S&P 500 –The Bull Party Goes On
The bull party goes on for the S&P 500 throughout 2014 based on the fact that Weekly MACD still showing price rally signals and prices are trading well above 1,574 support zone (red moving average).
Eventually when the S&P 500 is exhausted and needs rest, it could have a price correction to around 1,669 support zone (yellow moving average). Further healthy price correction could occur if the market managed to break 1,669 support. But keep in mind, the bullish S&P 500 party goes on as long as it is still trading above 1,574 support zone (red moving average).

In contrasts, when Weekly shows price correction signal, the Nasdaq could have a correction to around 3,643 support zone (yellow moving average) and a healthy correction to 3,408 (red moving average) if prices unable to stay above 3,643 support zone. Keep in mind, the Nasdaq Outlook for 2014 is still bullish and will rally around 5,000 as long as prices are trading above it’s 3,408 (red moving average).

However a bullish market will have it’s price correction and when it happen, the market could have a correction to 13,805 support zone. If prices could break 13,805 support zone, the next support zone will be around 12,647 (red moving average). However, do remember that Nikkei is still bullish throughout 2014 as long as it is still trading above 12,647 (red moving average).
