S&P 500 Index Reverses Lower, Sparks New Concerns

The S&P 500 Index reversed lower late last week and is seeing follow through selling this week.

That price reversal is getting deep enough that it is nearing a important support at 3900.

A close under 3900 would trigger a bearish reversal scenario that would likely lead to a much bigger decline. A close below 3900 would open the door to a decline to the 3600-3650 MOB band target on the short-term “daily” chart (first chart below).

On the “weekly” chart we can see that the reversal is occurring once again at the 40-week moving average. This could lead to even further downside, as our MFU-3 (Money Flow Unit) price target stands at 3029. This target was created a while back and remains as our intermediate term downside target.
