Stocks took another beating on Monday despite an early rally attempt, and the daily technical picture does allow for a further decline as the McClellan Oscillator on the Nasdaq is declining after rebounding to the zero line last week. It could drop back towards the “crash” lows at -290, the most oversold reading since 2008. Key support and the rising 200-day MA are in the 2216-2265 area. The S&P has support at 1090-1110 and the A/D line is still above its uptrend and did confirm the recent highs.
