Sellers Make A Strong Stand On Friday But S&P 500 Has Yet To Test 20-DMA


There was to be no reprieve for buyers on Friday. In the past, buyers have managed to step in to provide a bit of gloss on a bad week to give bulls some optimism for Monday, but there was no such reprieve at the end of last week.

But as I was saying about strong days in a trading range—the same applies for weak days too.  The (via ) gave up over 1% in a move which undid Thursday’s neutral doji, but with this occurring inside the trading range its damage is not as significant.  The 200-day MA is fast approaching, so this might be the next test.

Heading into this week we want to see how indices react to Friday’s selling and if there is any hangover from it.  The #stockbreakout scan was very poor as there were only penny stocks on the list—a first for this scan.  Even if the selling continues, it’s going to be a while before key support breaks.
