S&P 500 Index Trading Outlook (3-5 Days): Bearish

The current stock market pullback should be close to conclusion into the end of month and quarter (next Monday).

However, we cannot rule out a final retest and break Friday which likely would be buyable.

2953 important down to 2940 as support, while 3000 key on upside.

The S&P 500 is still trending lower since September 13, yet the pullback has lacked any real force to the downside.

As of end of month, following the peak from 9/13, when both Treasury yields and S&P peaked, the S&P 500 has lost less than 25% of the prior range from mid-August. We’ve seen some real choppy behavior amongst different sectors. Yet, prices have held in pretty well. While a defensive trade has been ongoing, it’s tough to make much of recent weakness as being all that important until/unless 2940 is broken.

TD Buy Setups will be in place heading into October on any pullback under Wednesday’s lows. Thus, declines into end of week/month/quarter should not be considered all that damaging, for now.
