The sp'500 saw a second consecutive net daily decline, settling -20pts @ 2045, with a notable (if momentary) break below the Friday morning low. The bigger weekly cycle is offering the first sign that the rally from sp'1810-2075 has concluded.
re: sp'500: the first blue candle... as ever, how it settles the week will be pretty important.
re: Dow. In theory, if the Dow doesn't see renewed upside into the 18000s, the 'natural' downside target for the summer/early autumn would be around 12500/400... a clear 5000pts lower.
For now... such a target is the stuff of bear fantasy land, but its something to keep in mind.
