A Tentative WayPoint
It looks to me like the main point at the start of this week, is that virtually no one thinks the recent highs are a top. That is important. After all the fear and volatility of the last 7 trading days, now traders are trying to figure out where to be buyers. With the S&P market this morning already up 5 percent from the extreme low of last week, there will no doubt will be a tentative nature to today’s trade. So look for a tighter range, maybe 2610 to 2670 on the S&P.
We continue to believe the market has topped and that the major support level on the S&P is 2311 at this time. Two technical factors, 1) the steepness of the decline, and 2) the lack of a clean-out trade point to further declines down the road.
