*BOUNCE WATCH. Equities continued to take a plunge today as Cleveland Fed President Loretta Mester mentioned that she would like to see rates above 4% by year end and for most (if not all) of 2023. In one of my previous analyses I incorrectly mentioned that only three Fed members voted on Federal Funds Rate (FFR), it is in fact 12 Fed members (the 7 governors, the New York Regional Fed President and then 4 alternating Reserve Bank Presidents) which comprise the FOMC and vote on FFR. Loretta Mester is one of them. Markets are eagerly waiting to see the August Unemployment Rate in Friday's Jobs Report, if it comes in flat or lower, 75bps will likely become the preferred option come 09/21. However, if there is an uptick in Unemployment a 50bps rate-hike on 09/21 would still likely be on the table. Additional guidance will be provided by August's CPI on 09/13. Key Upcoming Dates: 9th GDPNow US GDP estimate at 10am EST 09/01; August Employment Situation 830am EST 09/02; August CPI at 830am EST 09/13.*

Price is currently trending down at $3954 (after breaking below the 50 MA at $4k psychological support) and is technically retesting $3938 minor support.

RSI is currently trending down at 37 and is technically testing the uptrend line from 01/27/22 at 38 support. Stochastic remains bearish and is currently testing max bottom. MACD remains bearish and is currently trending down at -5 with no signs of trough formation as it quickly approaches a test of -11.45 support (which would likely coincide with the uptrend line from March 2020). ADX remains trending sideways at 23 as Price continues to fall, this is neutral at the moment.

If Price is able to bounce off of $3938 minor support then it will likely retest the 50 MA as resistance at ~$4k psychological resistance. However, if Price breaks down below $3938 minor support, it will likely retest the lower trendline of the descending channel from August 2021 at ~$3880 as support. Mental Stop Loss: (two consecutive closes above) $4k.
