A quick reversal followed by an extended alpha phase decline that moves well below the last short-term cycle low (STCL) at 2,766 would reconfirm the current bearish trend and forecast additional losses. Alternatively, an extended alpha phase rally that moves well above the last beta high (BH) at 2,940 would signal the likely transition to a bullish short-term trend.
