Market Condition

Selling begets selling and that is exactly what the market gave us for the final trading day of the week. The trends are extremely bearish and now that we have violated a key support level @ 1965 and are testing 1920, look to 1890 and 1860 as the next drop off points for capitulating sellers. Obviously the trend for the SP-500 remains bearish.

Today’s silver lining, which does not change my expectations for further price declines, is the oversold condition of this market. We are getting closer each selloff for a potential snapback rally. Until then, stayed Hillbent on the Market Direction…
