July 23 Selling Market Update and Big Stock Scan

Jul 23, 2015: 2:41 PM CST

After a small morning bounce off support, stocks continued falling along the sell pathway from the daily chart.

Let’s scratch the surface and look beyond the headlines to what’s trending today:

The 2,110 level was a Fibonacci Target spot and price rallied just shy of the 2,120 level.

Further selling intensified as price broke this 2,110 support level, resulting in the big sell swing were seeing now.

The target extended to the 2,100 level and price is just beneath the key “round number” at this point.

We’ll focus our attention for the moment on the 2,100 higher frame target as a bull/bear pivot.
