Dow Breaking Trend Line

The Dow had been the worst of the major US indexes on the short-term view (NDX led to the downside but formed a ‘W’ pattern as noted yesterday).  Now the Dow is following SPX in breaking the short-term trend line after negating its short-term bearish pattern (tell me again how TA, and (especially pattern trading) is a stand alone discipline?

The markets may keep a bearish bigger picture intact, but that will not be known until a lower low is made, using the April highs as the reference point.  Meanwhile, it’s short-term bullish.  FWIW, I limited losses on a couple shorts but kept the SPY short because it is un-leveraged and I am net long.  The April highs would decide on whether that is kept.
