Last week the markets put in a pretty nasty red candle with most of the selling coming on Friday. Momentum like that doesn't usually turn around quickly so I was looking for some follow-through this week.
From last week’s review -
So where does that leave us? Much more bearish looking than this time a week ago.
Here we are looking up at SPY 410, QQQ 310, and IWM 190.
Can prices find support and resume the move higher?
Or do they break lower signaling “risk off” once again?
You don’t need to be a technical analyst or a chartist to see things are pointing lower.
Down below, we’re looking at the 50-day moving averages, then the July 26 pivot, and finally the June 16/17 low as potential support.
So what did the markets do?
Exactly what we expected - downside follow-through.
SPY 0.00%↑ 50-day moving average? no help. Swing low anchored VWAP? no help. The July 26 pivot low? Maybe.
$DXY - The US Dollar made the breakout
$VIX - tried to go down, but couldn't stay
Now what? - Bull and Bear possibilities
The bull case is the same; there's not much of one until we see one of these potential support areas hold and help prices stop the slide.
On the flip side, the bear case continues to build. Falling prices, failed support levels, seasonality, etc.
Again from last week:
Risk management is critical in markets like this.
And don’t get in a hurry.
What I'm reading and listening to - I covered a lot this week!
Psychedelics as medical therapies is a radically growing concept.
On this episode of Infinite Loops, Jim O’Shaughnessy talked with Dennis McKenna, a pioneer in this space.
This little gem from Derek Sivers is packed full of short, quick insights for the entrepreneurial-minded.

I’ve linked to Spotify but you can find these anywhere you listen to podcasts.
Writing is an incredibly useful, developmental, important habit. Writing online, aka in public, is even better. If you've thought about trying but don't know where to start, here's some help.
Once again, wise words from Tom Canfield.
