The US stock market has been volatile during reporting season with the Dow Jones Industrial Average falling over 5.5 percent in the past four weeks. Rumors of an economic downturn, trade wars and interest rate cuts have fueled the volatility, but there are ways to determine if there are further falls to come on the Dow Jones Industrial Average or whether we are nearing the end of the down move.
