A sell-off may continue on the S&P500, Nasdaq 100 and UK100

FX:SPX500   S&P 500 index of US listed shares
On the S&P 500             and NASDAQ100 indices, closing as a high test bar in the resistance zone , and a bearish engulfing bar on the FTSE100 ( UK100             ) stock index, a sell setup is in order suggesting potential bearish continuation on these three ( CFD             ) indices, following the recent sell off on major indices.

1. S&P 500            

The rejection/resistance zone on the S&P 500             comprises the following:

- retest of the 50 ema ;
- retest of ~2011; and
- 50% retracement , and close below.

Oscillator convergence, as shown on the chart, is seen as an additional argument to enter a potential continuation of seller based momentum in this index.

entry - below high test bar
stop loss - above high bar
target - previous low or lower

2. NAS100            

Since the major global indices demonstrate price behaviour correlation, an almost exact set up as on the S&P 500             is also forming on the NAS100             .

entry - below high test bar
stop loss - above high test bar
target - previous low or lower


3. UK100            

The FTSE100 is in a very clear down trending environment. Three key reasons of a potential continued price decline are:

- close as a bearish engulfing bar;
- a strong bout of resistance at ~6250; and
- rejection of the 20 ema .

entry - below low of bearish enguling bar
stop loss - above high of bearish engulfing bar
target - at previous low or lower


I see your case and will not dispute it. I think the bear shows his claws too.
