The S&P 500 finished the week having twice respected support at the 50% Fibonacci retracement level of 1292/1296 on the hourly chart. Recovery above resistance at 1330 would indicate the end of the secondary correction.
21-Day Twiggs Money Flow below zero, however, continues to warn of selling pressure. Reversal below 1290 remains likely and would test primary support at 1150.
* Target calculation: 1350 - ( 1400 - 1350 ) = 1300
On the weekly chart, the Nasdaq 100 continues to test support at 2500. Breach of the rising trendline would warn that the primary up-trend is weakening. The sharp fall on 13-week Twiggs Money Flow indicates selling pressure and reversal below zero would suggest a primary down-trend.
What a cruel thing is war: to separate and destroy families and friends, and mar the purest joys and happiness God has granted us in this world; to fill our hearts with hatred instead of love for our neighbors, and to devastate the fair face of this beautiful world.
