Minor support at 3,726 is likely to be broken and S&P 500 seems to be set for a test of key support at 3,647. If RSI closes below 40 the bear trend is confirmed. A Bearish trend that is likely to take S&P500 back to October lows around 3,491.

USNAS100 cfd/Nasdaq future is continuing the sell-off that his market yesterday and could test October lows around 10,430 in a few days, possibly before end of week. That scenario is likely to play if RSI breaks below 40.
Dow Jones Index seems to have run out of steam at the 0.786 retracement just before the strong resistance at 33,292. Support at the 0.382 retracement around 31,386. If Dow Jones trades below its 556 SMA it is likely to test strong support around 3,206.
For Dow Jones to resume uptrend and extent it a close above 33,292 is needed.
