A strong close below 11.000 could send the index further down.

S&P 500 Index Close To Long Term Fib Target
The S&P 500 benchmark index is 40 points away from 2.618% fib extension. The trend is clearly up with a rising moving average line under the index levels.

Commodities And Rates Attempting Breakouts At The Same Time

Hi Chris, I enjoy reading your chart analysis. The analysis is usually clear and the charts clean (no indies etc.). I have seen you use log scale charts but it looks like you are using a linear scale on the two charts above and on the US dollar index chart you posted on (pls correct me if I am wrong). As you know, on long term charts diagonal/sloping trend lines look different on a log scale than on a linear scale. Rgds, Halli.

Good analysis. One pointer. I think the chart where you show both the 2y and the 10y yields should have the same scale, whether shown on one or two axes.
