The Bulls Fumbled The Ball Last Week, It’s About To Get Ugly

The trend has ended for stocks. We can now expect a lot of chops.

The bulls really fumbled last week. They not only had the Fed behind them (the Fed printed over $100 billion that week), it was also options expiration week, which is Wall Street’s favorite time to manipulate the markets to ensure as many options expire worthless as possible.

Despite this, stocks closed DOWN for the week. The S&P 500’s chart was truly pathetic.

Even the Dow Jones industrials, which has been a clear market leader, failed to end the week up. You can see how this index failed took out support (red line) and then failed to reclaim it. In technical analysis terms, this means former support is now resistant. And it is very bearish.

The onus is now on the bulls. They need to step in right here, right now, and push the market up in a big way. If they don’t the trend is dead and we’re in for a correction down to the 3,700s.
