Comment: Many say that Dow 20,000 is just a number, but they are wrong: It’s an important psychological pivot point. If the Dow is able to rise above it, and stay there, that is bullish. If it fails, that is bearish. All we want for the New Year is an established trend, and we don’t care if it’s an uptrend or downtrend as long as it lasts for longer than a few days.
