Wow did that happen fast! I had assumed SPY
would take a moderately aggressive slide from last Thursday's close, but it looks like China and the Shanghai Composite
(XGYO) really shoved it over the edge. With the large gap down at the open and sellers controlling the market for most of the morning, it looked like SPY
was doomed to close under $200.00. However, buyers regained momentum later in the afternoon and pushed it up above $201.00 by the close indicating that some of the shock from the Asian market turmoil had subsided. With that in mind, I am updating my post from Sunday and forecasting a small upward bounce towards the $202.50 range by Tuesday or Wednesday to relieve some of the downward pressure. It may continue to fill the gap left in Monday's wake, but I believe it will turn back around and head for $200.00 by the end of the week. I'm still bearish
overall and I don't think the $200.00 level will be met with much resistance once SPY
turns back around. We shall see!
