Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDU)
Bounce happened in DJIA when the index hit daily SMA 200. Currently, the index has moved upward for two days and might continue for the third day. However, the bounce might last for short-time as fundamental situation continue to worsen.
As long as there is no close below the averages then it is possible for DJIA to start rallying toward 26,000.
Apple Inc (AAPL)
AAPL gapped down below daily SMA 200 and attempted a rally. The rally has not surpassed the averages yet and we should see a test happen today. If the share prices rejected from the averages then AAPL might start a new bearish leg to test SMA 100. A long position at the current level with a stop below SMA 100 might be the long scenario traders could take.
Johnson & Johnson (JNJ)
JNJ is in a critical situation where the share prices might tumble and continue its bearish trend. At the current time, the share prices traded near the bottom of the channel and daily SMA 200. A strong breakout below the bottom of the channel and the SMA 100 will trigger a long-term bearish trend. A bounce from current level will help JNJ to maintain its trend inside the channel.
