    BIG TEST with the $SPX. Price broke below 3025 support area Friday and recleared it Monday. Price has now pulled back to this important price support area. This 3025 level needs to hold to suggest the market is stabilizing. It’s not unusual for price to break below the 200ema or even below support for a few days and then rally back through it as well, but I won’t be betting on it.

    The virus threat is also a financial threat to the economy world wide. Not the same as the 2007-09 economic reversal but just as damaging. Each reversal in the economy is different. Many years ago it was typically record high interest rates. Bottom line is the results are the same. But the charts will tell the tale.

    This is the first time that the market has not bounced from a positive Fed rate cut. Look for another down move.
