Comment: Although this is a shortened week, it could give us clues as to market direction. The S&P is near support, and it’s anyone’s guess what it will do. Previously, when the S&P came near support levels, it typically bounced. Based on past behavior, the odds are good we will get a short-term bounce. Nevertheless, if the S&P keeps falling, it could slice below support levels (2400) and keep going. Anything is possible so observe what happens if and when the S&P reaches the 50-day moving average.
I’m also watching the FANG stocks, Facebook, Apple, Netflix, and Google, which got beat up pretty badly the last few weeks. If these stocks keep struggling, it would not be positive for the overall market.
