The stock market’s decline over the past seven days has been relentless with the heaviest selling seen on Tuesday. The S&P 500 tested the lower daily starc bands, indicating that it is a high-risk time to sell and that the market should stabilize for a few sessions if not rebound. The 38.2% support is just below 1160 with the 50% support and the 200-day moving average (MA) at 1132. The NYSE Advance/Decline (A/D) line, which is a cumulative total of advancing minus declining issues, has dropped below its 34-period exponential moving average (EMA) but is still holding its uptrend. Stocks should rebound over the next three to five days, and the strength of that rally will be important.
