The potential cyclical downtrend from July is testing critical support in the 1,880 area on the S&P 500 index. A subsequent weekly close well below that level would signal an acceleration of the decline into a true market crash and predict substantial additional losses.
From a short-term perspective, we have been monitoring closely the character of the latest cycle that began last week. We are 5 sessions into the alpha phase rally of the current cycle and the rebound has struggled to advance during the last 3 sessions, suggesting that the alpha high (AH) may have formed today.
The confirmed formation of the latest AH after only 5 sessions would be an extremely bearish short-term development that would predict a quick move below the critical long-term support at the 1,880 level on the weekly chart. Therefore, it will be important to monitor stock market behavior closely during the next several sessions.
