S&P 500 (SPY)

Stocks had a very rough day with the S&P 500 falling 2.4%, and finishing the day off at 3009. The index closed at the lows of the day, it attempted to rally in the final 30 minutes, but that giant Russell rebalance just finished off was a terrible day. There was a monster sell imbalance of over $5 billion and just sent everything sharply lower in the final minutes of trading.

S&P 500, spx

The next significant level is the 2,960 level in the S&P 500. That is the low of last week, and based on the breakdown in the RSI, we likely to get there to start next week. The uptrend for the RSI is totally shattered, and more critical is that the RSI fell below its own level of support today.


The more significant question is what will become of the Qs. The index closed right on support at $240, and that alone is not enough to tell us what happens next. But look at the RSI and that downtrend. I’m going to do more work on this, but I don’t see how the NASDAQ can rise and the S&P 500 fall; they have too much in common up top. If that uptrend breaks, and we close below $240 on Monday, it will not a good sign of things to come. I have been talking about this most recent turn since Tuesday – Nasdaq 100 May See A Sharp Reversal Short-Term.


Facebook (FB)

Facebook was crushed today, as companies start pulling ads from the platform. The only saving grace was that the stock did not close below support at $213. I think that level is in jeopardy, with a drop to $195 more likely. Volume most certainly returned. Again options traders were betting on June 22 the stock would drop. It looks like they were right.

Disney (DIS)

Disney saw bearish options betting today too, and it seems likely the stock goes sub $100. Premium content – Disney Shares May Plunge By Up To 14%


AMD got crushed today as part of the Russell rebalance; there were a few million shares to sell, which took the stock sharply lower, with nearly 15 million shares trading just on the closing cross. Wow.

Ok, that’s all…
