Technical Market Action Strength in the closing hour of Tuesday's market followed through on liednesday rii th the industrial averatre eaining 1. 94 to close at 170.64 while the rails were up 53 cents at 45.22. Volume was 780,000 shares. Ability of the market to hold above the April 15th low of 165.59 is constructive for the shorter term. Tuesday's low v!aS 167.42. The important point on the upside is the 171.71 high of April 23rd. ;iednesday's high at 170.85 was within a point of that level. Ability to cross the 171.71 high would nullify a good part of the bearish near term indications of the penetrtion of the 170-172 support level and would, technically, indicate a further rally to at least the 175 level. The longer oerrn implications remain the same. Believe the market is in a broad accumulation area and repeat that the 170-160 level is a long term buying range.
