Thursday’s breakdown under the 2,075 support level set in motion the current sell-swing that took price first toward the 2,060/2,065 pivot level and then today toward the 2,025 target.

Buyers are stepping in (at least intraday) at the 2,030 index level with positive divergences so update your charts to reflect this higher timeframe pivot.

Let’s see what our Breadth Chart reveals about current market strength (or weakness):

A strange thing is happening with Materials, our strongest sector today (80% of stocks are positive).

That’s the one bright spot in an otherwise sea of red (selling pressure).

We’re seeing the expected relative strength in defensive groups (Health Care and Utilities) and weakness in offensive groups (Financials, Tech, and Discretionary).

We’ll be cautious unless price instantly rebounds off the current 2,030 level.

Here’s a top-level or full-perspective view of today’s S&P 500 stock performance (courtesy of FinViz.com).

Retail names Gamestop (GME), Fossil Group (FOSL), Nordstrom (JWN), and Cisco Systems (CSCO)
