Short-term Outlook

  • Bullish Scenario: A rebound and close well above the middle of the Bollinger bands at 3,403 would predict a move up toward the previous short-term high at 3,581.
  • Bearish Scenario: A close below current levels would reconfirm the downtrend from early September and forecast additional losses.

The bearish scenario is highly likely (>80 probable).
