SPX, what is the commotion

Well, the past week is real messy, one big red bar erased last five weeks gain. It is usual aint it? :-)
We have it 3 instances before.

1. On the first week of Dec             2013, there was a big bar erasing 3 weeks gain, after that it was Christmas rally, previous high not violated.
2. 3rd week of Jan 2014, the big bar erasing 4 weeks/one month's gain, previous high was taken out, hence another two candle lower.
3. Last week of July 2014, a big bar erasing almost 8 weeks/2months of gain, previous high not taken out.
4. As of now, this big bar erased 5.5 weeks of gain, previous high taken out.

Let's see if 2000 get taken out on Monday

P.S. On top of that, each time we see a hammer there is a 200+ point going up :-)
If this is true, then I suggest you look at NYA (NYSE composite), 1 day for the last year. You'll see a head & shoulders breakdown. The NYA never made any new highs with the previous drops, and is on the cusp of a decent pullback, possibly back down to the 8000 mark. My vortex indicator is also showing everything going negative this time, after a brief negative territory for the October decline, it hasn't been negative since 2013, so I think this time is different!!

Yeah, there is one on trading view, select a period of 150 and you'll see what I mean, this goes for the SPX as well, it's rapidly going negative on this which would indicate we're getting to the end of this, especially with oil going as it is, people are getting scared, and the FED won't do anthing about it since it would be helping all the other countries as well!

There's a lot of risk out there with these Shale companies borrowing money, if oil keeps dropping, a lot are going to have collateral problems, as some have loaned cash when oil was at $100. Counterparty risk is the key here, and shale oil probably accounts for around 18-20% of HY credit, so could get nasty

YUP, any further drop < 50, company will go bust which in turn will create havoc in stock market

Christmas Rally, no?

I change the vortex indicator to 150, blue the +ve is coming down while the -ve red is moving up!
but what is the rational of changing to 150 from 14? to fit the changes?
It works like the directional movement aint it?
jangseohee TBone999
but not doing anything so as not to help other countries would mean let the Shale companies just go bust?

Bear with me until Dec 31, a similar scenario in SPX 2008 TOP is completing
