The $DJIA chart is telling an interesting story, technically speaking that is. Frankly not sure what the message is quite yet, but I find it fascinating hence it might be of interest to share.
First of all, note a behavioral set of facts I've pointed out on twitter: On Monday $DJIA again tagged its January 2018 highs and has again rejected.
