Summary:  A correction seems to be unfolding in the US Main Indices. With weekly charts in the process of forming top and reversal patterns , further 3%, maybe 5% down side could be seen


S&P 500/US500 cfd was yesterday hit by heavy selling. A correction seems to be unfolding. A correction that is likely to take S&P 500 to test the lower rising trendline and support at around 4,793.
A close below both could increase the selling pressure pushing S&P 500 down to test the key support at around 4,687

RSI divergence has been warning of an imbalance in the market, a looming trend exhaustion. And now it seems to be unfolding.
For S&P 500 to resume uptrend a close above 4,931 is needed

On the weekly chart S&P 500 could be forming a Bearish Engulfing pattern. For that to unfold  a close tomorrow Friday below last week’s opening price at 4,853 is required

Nasdaq 100/USNAS100  is likely to be testing the support at around 16,963 following yesterday’s sell-off. The correction has been looming after RSI started to show divergence a few days ago. A correction is unfolding. A correction that is likely to test support at around 16,963. A close below is likely to push the Index lows to strong support at around 16,249 - 16,165.

The rising 55 DMA will offer some support which could limit the depth of the correction

 

Weekly Nasdaq 100 chart seems to be in the process of drawing a Doji Evening top and reversal like pattern – circled (ideally the body of the Doji – last week – and the body this week’s bearish candle should not overlap). Nevertheless, the top and reversal indication should not be ignored.
Combined with RSI showing divergence there is strong indicating of a larger correction.

For Nasdaq 100 to resume and extend the uptrend behaviour a close above 17,665 is needed
