SP-500 continues decline to 1045.50 but what next?

I wrote on the 21st January & 27th of January forecasting market decline in the short term outlining the following scenarios.

************************************************
We essentially have 5 scenarios

1. Today’s negative action halts today and builds a base at the intermediate support line
2. We experience further downside action to the medium term support line at 1072
3. We pullback to 38.2% of the July Trend (6 months)
4. Pull Back to Fibonacci 50, at 1015
5. Experience quite a serious correction releasing the tension of the March to date rally with a pull back to 980.

************************************************
Of those 5 scenarios I suggested 2, 3 and 4 were the most likely.

So what happened?

1. Today’s negative action halts today and builds a base at the intermediate support line
2. We experience further downside action to the medium term support line at 1072Downside Target hit – 4th February 2010
3. We pullback to 38.2% of the July Trend (6 months)Downside Target hit – 5th February 2010
4. Pull Back to Fibonacci 50, at 1015 – This could still potentially happen Wordens TSV & MoneyStream indicators are still in a negative divergences, however RSI 14 is starting to look positive.
5. Experience quite a serious correction releasing the tension of the March to date rally with a pull back to 980 – 1000 is a strong psychological support & resistance  level for the S&P500, I would not expect a break of this line today.  However if this was broken we may see considerable decline thereafter.

In this chart you can see that RSI is starting to show a slight positive divergence, while TSV is confirming the downtrend by remaining negative.  The move down also occurred on higher volume, which as we know a move down on higher volume is very bearish.



Where Now for the US Markets?

The market participants are not sure where to go from here.  I have seen no clear sign of a change in trend to the positive side.  Be careful with your trading until we get a clear signal that this decline will reverse.
