Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDU)
DJIA closed near its opening level yesterday, the index hanging near the fresh high and expected to continue its bullish movement. There is no change to the situation yet and it is better to wait and see now. On the upside, 30,000 is the target.
Conoco Phillips (COP)
COP share prices hanging at the daily SMA 200 and looking to bounce higher. If a bounce happens then it might be a temporary bullish bounce. We think oil prices will continue under pressure and it will impact COP share prices. Traders could look for short positions at the current level and using $61.15 as the level to place stop orders.
