Dow Theory' Confirms Sell Signal

If there were any doubts that stocks have entered corrective mode, the "Dow Theory" is now telling us the market is heading down.

The century-old Dow Theory, a way to analyze market trends and turning points, says both the Dow Jones Industrial Average and Dow Jones Transportation Average need to move in tandem to confirm the trend. On Tuesday, the Dow Theory officially gave a sell signal, as Dow industrials and Dow transports broke decisively through June lows, with the Dow transportation index hitting a 2011 low.

WSJ reporting it 2 days after the fact is like the horse has already left the this case more stampeded. is much more timely.
He posted it Tuesday evening
"The Dow Theory signaled a Primary Tide Bear Market on 8/2/11, when both the Dow-Jones Industrial Average and the Dow-Jones Transportation Average closed below their closing price lows of June, 2011."

I have read that if the Dow Industrial, Transportation, and Utility all go below their 39-day MA, you have a bear market and will continue to have one until they go above it.
