Whilst really just a data log these figures are instructive because they give a neat summation of what direction the price action has been in the Dow over recent times. Despite, what the naysayers have been bleating about the end of the world has not arrived and if you simply followed price action you would have seen this action unfolding. This is a classic case of trade what you see not what you think you should see.
