The Dow Jones Index and the general stock market look weaker by the day. Today, for the first time since October 2008 a Dow Jones’ 52Wk High expired after its 52 weeks passed it by.
If you’re bullish on the stock market, you should notice the Dow Jones’ BEV plot below has been trending the wrong way for the past month. At week’s end the Dow closed 4.24% below the red BEV Zero Line; 4.24% below its last all-time high...
