I completely believe in dow's theory here. our chats clearly depicts what's going on in the market. Every small movement or any economical change effect the charts at every point. Mostly, when talking about fundamental factors, they clearly show a major impact on the prices. However, technical's do look artificial to me. Seems like big players in the market grab the core and change the direction of the instrument. Happened with me once 2 years ago when a clearly falling market started rising out of nowhere. It was strange but yes, they can be artificial.
