FXCM's Dow Jones Industrial Average CFD, US30, is in the weak zone of its daily chart, between the lower blue and red bands. Therefore, it will be positive if it moves up into the neutral area, between the blue bands (green arrow). However, the hourly chart on the right needs to continue with its bullishness to make this progress. The hourly EMAs and stochastic have crossed bullishly (black ellipses). Still, the stochastic needs to move into the 80+ area (blue arrow) and hold. The longer the stochastic can maintain in the upper quintile on the hourly chart, the greater the index's likelihood of moving into its neutral area. We note that oil has pulled back from its highs of last week, which may be restoring some confidence in the risk market.
