Target Met

Target Met

Back on September 5th I wrote about a potential intermediate term top in the DJ internet index here. As we know by now, topping patterns in strong uptrends are likely not to complete since you are going against the longer-term trend which is why this example was only a “potential”. But, all trends eventually end so they should not be ignored. In this case, the downside target down at “T1” was significant enough to grab my attention. Not evident from my chart, the internet index was forming a topping pattern warning of a move lower while the broader market continued to move higher, pointing to clear divergence.

Fast forward almost two months and here is what has transpired since the post. The price of the index eventually broke below the (red) support line and chopped sideways for a couple of weeks. From there it attempted a quick rally, back-tested the underside of (red) support and immediately failed.
