Daily Market Commentary: Further Selling

Another day of losses dropped indices below their 20-day MAs. Technical weakness intensified which confirmed breaks of support.

The S&P cut below its 20-day MA with relative ease.  Channel support is next.

The Nasdaq finished just shy of a test of channel support.  It will likely complete this tomorrow.

The Russell 2000 also cut below its 20-day MA with next support around 825.

Today's failure by bulls to defend support (20-day MAs) suggests tomorrow will see some downside follow through.  The absence of buyers is a concern, although alternative levels of support can be found at channel support and/or 50-day MAs.  The Nasdaq is likely to be the first index to test the credibility of channel and/or 50-day MA support.
