Dow Transport and Baltic Dry Index Monthly Charts.
Dry Index Monthly Charts.

Transportation-related stocks tend to be economically sensitive. So it was no surprise to see them fall sharply last March as the COVID-19 coronavirus gripped our news and nation.

But since bottoming last year, the Dow Jones Transportation Average and Baltic Dry Shipping Index have moved sharply higher. And this may be sending a bullish message about these stocks (and the global economy).

As you can see in today’s chart 2-pack, both indices are breaking out above their respective long-term “monthly” trendlines at each point (1).

In the case of the transports, it’s a breakout above overhead rising resistance (indicating a very strong move as long as it holds). In the case of the shipping index, it is breaking out above a confluence of lateral resistance and its falling overhead trendline (this will signal a change in trend as long as it holds).

In any event, the price action continues to reflect strength in the global economy! Bulls want these breakouts hold. Stay tuned.
