“Beautiful PA on the #dow. Price swept the stops at 25200 before being rejected. A UTAD has formed with a confirmed h4 bull div. We should see some fireworks come Monday open, expecting a move to the lower TR before markdown commences.”

“Happy 4th #birthday to my youngest daughter, Norah! The #dowjones during her life has been up 44%.”

A Twitter user, MacroSymbols, commented:
“#sp500 has had a very impressive bounce that has taken it into some pivotal levels. 2713 is the 61.8% fib level which bear markets tend not to go back above. The 100dma also there which capped the market 3 times in Q4. How market handles these will be telling.”
Another user, Robert Edwin, said:
“#SP500 The situation is after the Fed so bullish that one should almost be suspicious… But we are still below 2709 (61.8 fibo), below MA50 week & MA200 day, so it could go up a bit before the bears take over: Buy the rumor, seell the fact Buy the mystery, sell the history.”
