Here, we have a larger pattern, and a smaller, localized pattern within it. Note that the right shoulder of the larger pattern is also the head of the smaller pattern. The smaller has completed, indicating a (but the rising neckline would normally tend to mitigate it as a signal). The larger has not yet completed; but if it does, this would be strongly as the neckline is sloping downwards. If it does complete, it looks like we have support at approximately the 9000 and 7900 levels.
When doing technical analysis, it is important not to have either bear or bull "glasses" on because having preconceived notions is a way to get seriously burned (or at least disappointed). I guess my question back to you would be, since you are "retiring soon", you have a vested emotional interest in prices going up, no? A question to ask yourself is whether this has an effect on your own conceptions?
If these bullish indicators turn out to be correct, there will still undoubtedly be days where the price goes up--but the overall trend is still down.
