This morning the market followed through on Friday's strong rally, however it stalled exactly at technical resistance at the downtrend line on the SPX 500 that I discussed on the weekend and sold off into the afternoon and the close. What started off as a nice up date ended up down for the major indexes around -0.85%. Inside this channel-like pattern on the SPX there's an open gap from last Friday that could be a magnet. We'll see if the 'bulls' can depend price and ultimately form another higher low inside the channel before attempting another rally to that 4020 gap area. Price going below the bottom of the channel would not be good.
