Sellers effortlessly demolished the sturdy-looking Hidden Pivot support at 1135.00 that we’d been using as a minimum downside target. This augurs more weakness over the near term, presumably to the 1125.20 target shown. (I moved ‘A’ up to the next peak to come up with this target.) A tradable bounce is very likely, since, as you may recall, it coincides with a very major Hidden Pivot support that comes from the monthly chart. I’ve drum-rolled this target before, since its decisive breach would portend more slippage to a least 917.30, and possibly to 817.50, the number I’ve been using as a worst-case low for the bear market begun in the fall of 2011.
