January 31, 2014:   The exchange traded funds (ETF) for the Dow and S&P500 are DIA and SPY, respectively.

My chart below shows the
Dow and S&P500 as indexes and the ETFs with dividends reinvested.   The ETF for the NASDAQ is the 100 stock QQQ (for the NASDAQ 100) but  I like my Newsletter Explore portfolio far better than the QQQ because the QQQ index adds stocks when up and drops them when low while I do the opposite with my newsletter portfolio.

Notes: My Observations for the Dow, S&P500 and NASDAQ
  • In October the Dow ($INDU in my two charts) corrected to its 200-DMA than in November it surged to a record high above a dashed green resistance-turned-support line to the dashed-red resistance line. 
    • From this high, the Dow corrected to successfully test the dashed green resistance-turned-support line from above from which it rallied to a new high at the start of 2014.
    • This week the dashed green resistance-turned-support line failed as support. I suspect a strong bottom would be the DOW touching its 200-DMA which it last did in October 2013.
  • The S&P500 ($SPX in the graphs) is also testing resistance turned support from above.   
    • The S&P500 is now testing the dashed-green resistance-turned-support line on the chart below. 
    • The S&P500 is ALSO testing the dotted-green support line.
  • The NASDAQ (NASDAQ Charts) briefly tested its 20-year support-turned-resistance-back-to-support line from above in October and remains very strong with a very small pullback relative to the Dow & S&P500..
