SPX Daily TA Cautiously Bearish

SP:SPX   S&P 500 Index
SPXUSD Daily cautiously bearish. Recommended ratio: 35% SPX, 65% Cash.

*August CPI surprised to the upside by increasing 0.1% to finish 8.3% higher than the year before compared to 8.1% consensus estimates, sending Equities, Cryptos, Commodities, Euro and Futures into the red. Today's winners are once again a combination of DXY, US Treasuries and VIX. Although it was minor, CPI going up rather than down is still a blow to the "inflation has peaked" crowd and is likely to inspire the Fed to go with a 75bps (or potentially higher) FFR hike on 09/21. Key Upcoming Dates: The Merge (Ethereum) at ~11pm EST 09/14; US August Retail Sales at 830am EST 09/15; 12th GDPNow US Q3 US GDP estimate 09/15; UofM Consumer Sentiment Index at 10am EST 09/16; FOMC meeting 09/20-09/21 (Statement Released at 2pm EST on 09/21).*

Price is currently trending down at ~$3960 as it breaks below the 50 MA at ~4k support and is on the verge of testing $3938 minor support. Volume remains Moderate (high) and is on track to break a four day streak of buyer dominance if it can close today's session in the red. Parabolic SAR flips bearish at $3911, this margin is bearish at the moment. RSI is currently trending down at 42 after being rejected by 53 resistance, the next support is the uptrend line from 01/27/22 at 38 support. Stochastic remains bullish but is currently trending down at 65 after forming a peak just below 76 resistance at 68, if it breaks below 60 it would be a bearish crossover; the next support is at 48. MACD remains bearish as it continues testing the uptrend line from March 2020 at ~-23 and is currently trending down at -26; if support from the uptrend line is lost, the next support is at -11.45. ADX is currently trending down slightly at 20 as Price is falling, this is neutral at the moment; if ADX can form a trough as Price continues to fall, this would be bearish.

If Price is able to bounce off of $3938 minor support then it will likely retest the 50 MA 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 ~$3860 as support. Mental Stop Loss: (two consecutive closes above) $4k.
