Major Market Benchmarks Reach Short-Term Oversold Reading

Keeping it short tonight. I am overtired and in need of some sleep.

The S&P gapped lower at the open this morning and proceeded to trade in a sideways fashion for the remainder of the trading day. We are moving ever closer to closing the gap from 4/20. The S&P 500 (SPY) moved to a low of around $131.60 which is roughly $0.25 away from officially closing the gap.

I would not be surprised to see the gap close tomorrow followed by a sharp push higher. However, I do think that the next push higher will eventually fail and push the S&P (SPX) below major support at the 1250 area. Pure speculation of course. Short-term moves are my cup of tea.

If the market happens to move lower tomorrow at the open, I would suspect that a trade will be signaled in one of the major benchmark ETFs (QQQ, DIA, SPY, IWM). Subscribers be on the lookout.
