The bottom line, the short-term trend is down, not confirmed though. I hold no position over the weekend.
I have no idea about the next Monday. Seasonality is very strong as according to Stock Trader’s Almanac, Monday before March expiration, Dow up 17 of last 23 and we could have a Head and Shoulders Bottom breakout with text book target at $131.93. On the other hand, the close doesn’t look good, could be a Shooting Star formed on a back test of the broken Symmetrical Triangle. I’ll see if I could find more excuses for either bulls or bears in the weekend to make a more solid conclusion. For now, the most important thing is, enjoy your weekend!
