DJIA is getting near to 23,000, and there was another record high printed on the previous trading day. Similar to previous day outlook, it is not the best time to look for a short position yet. Moreover, it is the worst time to look for a long position. Traders will watch CPI and retail sales data today. Also, The Fed Evans & Kaplan scheduled to give speeches later today.

Dow Jones Industrial Average (INDU)
More record high achieved by DJIA in the previous day trading session. However, the index slipped after lack of direction trading. The index moved inside 100 points range and might continue sideways in the last day of the week. The direction stays bullish, and traders might stay sideline for now.
Amgen Inc (AMGN)
Simple technical setup on AMGN daily chart. The share prices move past the trendline resistance and currently back to test it. A successful test of the trendline will lead AMGN higher. The odds are high, and traders could place an order with a stop below the daily SMA 50.
