Without any significant change, we will expect DJIA is bouncing back and forth inside 20,400 – 21,000.


EBAY fell lower yesterday, but it manages to bounce and close as bullish pin bar. The bullish pin bar touched daily SMA 100 and the top of the blue channel. If the price continues higher today above $33.91, it has a chance to test $34.87 high.

The healthy bullish trend shown on ITW daily chart, the price bounce from the support trendline each time it touched. Currently, traders have a chance to enter the long position in the shares with low risk. There is high chance the price will continue bouncing from the trendline.
