Jeff Cooper: Tuesday's Key Reversal in the S&P 500 May Indicate Further Downside
If SPY retraces to 195, the index could find itself in a weak position.
If the S&P 500 trades back below Tuesday's low and sees a follow-through below the 20-day moving average it will be a conspicuous change in character for the market; it would suggest Wednesday was a Pause Day following Tuesday's Key Reversals as offered in this morning's report (subscription required).
Offsetting Tuesday's signal bar, reversals open the road to a potential fast move to the topside. However, as a 10-minute SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust (NYSEARCA:SPY) chart from the Daily Market Report shows, below a retrace to 195 puts the index in a weak position.
