As my father would say, in a sharp decline, SUPPORT is just a 7-letter word. However, there does come a point in which the risk/reward prospects become so overwhelmingly positive that it merits at least a small knife-catching attempt. Of course, at such a point, there should be both evidence of washed-out sentiment as well as compelling price “support” levels. Our analysis would suggest we are near such a point in sentiment as well as the charts as indicated by the approximate levels in the following indices:
S&P 500: ~2675-2690
Dow Jones Industrial Average: ~24,750-24,950 (24,300 below)
Nasdaq 100: ~6750-6800
Russell 2000: ~1554
S&P 400: ~1856-1879
