In early September, we warned readers that Utilities were breaking down and that this would have an adverse effect on the stock market.

Since then, the breakdown has become more pronounced. And stocks have been under pressure.

Today we provide an updated monthly chart of the Dow Jones Utilities Index, highlighting the clear breakdown below its uptrend line and 40-month moving average.

Historical Precedent

The Dow Jones Utilities Index has broken below its 40-month moving average only 2 times in the past 25 years. And both times recessions followed.

This marks the 3rd time in 25 years that Utilities have fallen below this moving average line, different results this time? Stay tuned.

Comment Guidelines

We encourage you to use comments to engage with users, share your perspective and ask questions of authors and each other. However, in order to maintain the high level of discourse we’ve all come to value and expect, please keep the following criteria in mind: 

  • Enrich the conversation
  • Stay focused and on track. Only post material that’s relevant to the topic being discussed.
  • Be respectful. Even negative opinions can be framed positively and diplomatically.
  •  Use standard writing style. Include punctuation and upper and lower cases.
  • NOTE: Spam and/or promotional messages and links within a comment will be removed
  • Avoid profanity, slander or personal attacks directed at an author or another user.
  • Don’t Monopolize the Conversation. We appreciate passion and conviction, but we also believe strongly in giving everyone a chance to air their thoughts. Therefore, in addition to civil interaction, we expect commenters to offer their opinions succinctly and thoughtfully, but not so repeatedly that others are annoyed or offended. If we receive complaints about individuals who take over a thread or forum, we reserve the right to ban them from the site, without recourse.
  • Only English comments will be allowed.

Perpetrators of spam or abuse will be deleted from the site and prohibited from future registration at Investing.com’s discretion.
