Meanwhile, technical indicators continued to give off mixed trading signals, while SMA50 traded in the middle area between support and resistance, reflecting the trendless actions.

Short-term traders should be patient and wait until Dow Jones succeeds in breaching one of these lines to enter the market.

A sustained breakout above 18100.00 is a positive indication; on the contrary, blasting through 17710.00-17705.00 may bring panic sell-off actions.
