On the Dow Jones Industrial Average daily chart, below, note the bounce yesterday afternoon and this morning takes price back up to a declining 200-day simple moving average. I expect this are to be the scene of the first major test of bulls' strength, especially as the VXX (VIX ETF) retraces its breakout dating back to last Friday.
