Boeing, which has faced challenges in recent years due to multiple crashes and investigations, is once again under scrutiny as the Department of Justice (DOJ) initiates a criminal investigation.

Dow Jones technical outlook

The Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA) experiences a gradual ascent on Monday, reaching around 38,775.00 after an initial dip near 38,475.00 earlier in the day. Although the DJIA still lingers below last week’s highs near 38,960.00, it has managed to stay above the 50-day Simple Moving Average (SMA) at 38,295.00, providing support. Despite falling short of the all-time peaks above 39,200.00 recorded in February, the DJIA has maintained its bullish position, consistently trading above both the 50-day and 200-day SMAs since entering a bull market in November.
