The S&P 500 fell by 2% on the day. I was on to something yesterday when I thought things didn’t seem right. The market popped at the opening but collapsed throughout the morning, dropping 3.1% Intraday from the peak. Maybe the weak economic data at 10 AM contributed to the decline; I can’t be sure. But the dollar index was very strong today and appears to have broken out of its recent slumber.

The move higher in the dollar certainly did not come because of the weaker expected consumer sentiment reading. The rally started this morning on euro weakness. It looks like a cup-and-handle technical pattern in the dollar is trying to play out and could send it to around 106.

S&P 500 (SPY)

Finding the pattern in the dollar made me realize there was probably a good chance there was one in the S&P 500. Of course, the pattern was there, with an inverted cup and handle. The handle broke today. For now, the first level of support for the S&P 500 would come at 3,800 and then down around 3,675.

There is a lot more detail in a free YouTube video update I provided.

Apple (AAPL)

Apple got to the trendline yesterday and failed at it today. Apple needs to hold above $130, which is a significant level. The market will likely make a new low if Apple makes a new low.


AMD looks very weak at the moment, with the odds of $73.50 coming into play increasing. With a gap still open, $61 may even be possible.

That’s all for today.
