For the week, the S&P 500 (INDEXSP:.INX) fell roughly 1 percent. That’s not all that bad considering what might have been… or perhaps, what’s to come.
On Friday, the S&P 500 briefly broke key support at 2120 before recovering and finishing at 2132. Some are classifying this as a hold of support, while others see this as technical damage. Either way you slice it, traders have a line in the sand to trade against.
If that level is breached, traders & investors will need to have a plan and follow it. This is an effective way of managing our emotions (i.e. keeping them out of our trading).
