Was SPY 276 our last gap? No, there is another. TVO MB 3-07

Overall volume continued to rise on Thursday, as the market racked up its second day in a row of across-the-board distribution. There are some bulls, though, who are celebrating what seems to be a successful retest and bounce off the S&P 500’s 200 day MA.

Now that we got the retest out of the way, it’s all up hill from here, right? Well, as I’ve mentioned here many times before, there are few things that are certain in life, and gaps getting filled is one of them.

But didn’t we already fill the one at SPY 276? Yes indeed, but there is another one at 272, and this one contains a lot of trapped and angry bears hungry for vengeance.

Don’t get me wrong. Today’s drop did have buyers, and it will likely take more than Draghi to turn this market over to the dark side in the longer term. With HG at SWELTERING and more heat to spare at the top of the scale, though, this retest may have a flush or two in store before all is said and done. -MD
