DJIA analysis for 28/08/2018:

During the Monday US session, the Dow Jones Industrial Average completed a more than six-year correction - the longest since 1961, when the market could not break higher in 223 sessions. Yesterday's rise is largely due to the progress in trade negotiations. The USA and Mexico managed to reach an agreement after long talks, now Canada is waiting in line.

Let's now take a look at the Dow Jones technical picture at the daily time frame. DJIA closed yesterday with an increase of 1.01% at 26 049 points. The result above 25 886 points means the end of the adjustment lasting from February 8, when it fell by 10% from the record peak of 26 January - 26 067,57 points. The end of the correction is defined as an increase of 10% from the last hole. If an alternative definition is taken into account, ie the acquisition of a new historic summit, then to reach this ceiling, there is a shortage of fewer than 20 points.
