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?
