Markets continued sliding lower on Wednesday. Buyers are largely absent from the market so far this month.
The indexes settled modestly lower again…
- Dow Jones -0.6%
- Nasdaq -1.0%
- S&P 500 -0.7%
- Russell 2000 -0.3%
Seasonal weakness is the top culprit. September is historically the worst of the 12 months for stocks.
And rising oil prices aren’t helping.
Sector Round Up
Bears captured 9 of the 11 sectors on Wednesday.

- Energy (XLE) +0.0%
- Healthcare (XLV) -0.5%
- Consumer Discretionary (XLY) -0.9%
- Technology (XLK) -1.1%
Markets have reached a possible turning point.
The chart below represents the Nasdaq 100…
The S&P 500 and Dow 30 are at nearly identical local support levels.
Futures are lower this morning. A red open and green close would indicate the bulls are still the dominant force in the market.
Your latest readout leans bullish…

- RSI levels are all neutral
