S&P 500 has started consolidating. Look at the red line, the 50-day moving average. It has supported the index so many times. Thus, we might expect S&P to drop to the moving average at 4430 if it manages to break below the recent low of 4470. Monitor the movement of the S&P 500! When it gets closer to this red line – the 50-day moving average, consider buying!
