DOW / INDU 2007 & 2011 Chart Comparison

Here is a DOW Chart Pattern I’ve been keeping an eye on and now is probably the best time to share it with you, not necessarily as a trading idea because the repetition of a single pattern is not in itself  means to take a position, but it’s something we should all be aware of to enable us to take full advantage of if other factors begin to support it as a solid trading idea.

This is the DOW chart showing the 2007 Bull Market top followed by the first major retrace that topped out 7 Months later right on the underside backtest of the trend line that had previously supported the market:
