Investors weighed in on a batch of economic data ahead of next week’s Federal Reserve meeting, as US core personal consumption expenditures inflation, the Fed’s preferred measure of inflation, fell 4.4% in December and posted its smallest annual rise since October. The first is from 2021, paving the way for smaller Fed hikes.

Dow Jones Technical Analysis
Technically, the index moves along a bullish corrective slope line in the short term, as shown in the attached chart for a period of time (daily), supported by its continuous trading above its simple moving average for the previous 50-day period. It is extremely oversold so the index prepares in its recent trading to attack the important 34,281.36 resistance level.
Therefore, our expectations indicate more rise for the index during its upcoming trading, especially if it breaches the aforementioned 34,281.36 resistance, to then target the first resistance level at 35,361.36.
