Daily Observations 14 December
Are we entering bearish town? Read on as we study the red market today.
I'm not sure about you, but I went grocery shopping this afternoon to calm down. Market tumbles pretty much the entire day before recovering a tiny bit towards closing.
Day two of investors selling. $SPY is below its exponential and simple moving averages. What does that tell you? Pop open that bottle of wine because Santa ain't coming soon.
Will we see a cross over of the 9 over 20 exponential moving average soon?
