Corey Rosenbloom, of AfraidToTrade.com, points out the clear mid-day reversal he was seeing in the S&P 500 index on Wednesday and highlights the day’s strongest trending names (or the candidates for pro-trend continuation) as well as the bearish downtrending candidates from his weakness scan.

The sell swing away from the 2,020 level continued, though we’re seeing a clear mid-day reversal on Wednesday.

As widely expected, stocks traded down away from the 2,020 level toward—and then under—the 2,000 round number target.

For now, we’re focusing again on the 2,000 key simple pivot level as our bull/bear price.

Let’s see what our breadth chart reveals about current market strength (or weakness):

Our weakest three sectors span the board from Financials to Staples and Industrials.

We’re seeing a mixed price action day which is confirmed by the mixed sector performance data.
