    The Dow is clearly Knockin’ On Heaven’s Door. However, all the strength models are warning that it is getting tired. To see a pop into August we really need to see a closing technically above 27352 and then we may see a new high next week. Even the DAX in Germany peaked back in January 2018 We still see 2020 as the key target for major changes in trend
