DJI 30 - End of Week Chart - 22 June, 2012

Learning from the past week:
Our concluding line of last week's study, was that the Index should stay above the Tenkan Sen (red line) (click)
It did not, and we had a red candle standing on the MVWAP 34.
The Oscillator is around the zero.2
Bulls would worry that we have a close below the Tenkan Sen and Kijun Sen. 1
Added to their woes, is the almost inevitable Bearish Cross of the Kijun Sen and the Tenkan Sen next week. 1

Looking forward into the next week:
Keeping above the MVWAP 34, may help the Bulls keep their turf for some more time. 
The expected, Bearish Kijun Sen - Tenkan Sen CROSS  - helps Bears consolidate their hold.
