The Short-Term Downtrend Continues - Saturday, June 27
The selling on Friday, June 26 pulled the market down to the first level of support around 3000 on the SPX. If the selling begins to pick up, the next important support will be around the 2800-level on the SPX, which corresponds with the May lows.

A short-term downtrend began on Thursday, June 11. The PMO index has now reached the bottom of its range, which means that in a few days we will start to look for signs of the next short-term uptrend.
