The market is in a stair-step pattern lower. This is a relatively orderly decline, compared to the "smashes," if not "crashes," of Feb 2018, Oct 2018, Dec 2018 and March 2020. But the bears are in charge now that the 3280 level has been broken.

A significant battle has developed between the bulls and the bears. There is resistnace at 2425 and support at 3310-3330. A closing price breakout from that range should be significant, especially on a close below 3280. Unless there is such a breakdown, the $SPX chart can still be considered to be bullish.

The selling that began on September 3rd has gained momentum, and as the market has declined, confirmed sell signals have been registered in several areas. There is one major roadblock for the bears, though, and that is that the chart of $SPX is still in an uptrend. In my opinion the support at 3280 is the one that needs to hold. If it doesn't, then the $SPX chart will have succumbed to a bearish pattern.

The S&P 500 Index ($SPX) and NASDAQ ($NDX; QQQ; $COMPQ) were having one big party, with new intraday and/or closing highs having been registered for 11 of 12 days ($SPX) and 13 in a row ($NDX). That party came to a swift end yesterday, Thursday, September 3rd. But has the party really ended, or is this just a pause? $SPX did not even quite pull back to its rising 20-day moving average.

A week ago, $SPX was struggling to break through the old highs just below 3400. That is no longer the case, as the Index made a strong move upward this week, allaying any fears of a double top and punishing the shorts once again.
