S&P 500 Daily Chart – Buyers Trying to Get Control

Yesterday, the S&P index got within a few points of a 20% fall from the all-time high. Markets a move 20% from highs are considered in a bear market. The NASDAQ index which is fallen over 30% is already in a bear market.

The inability to reach the -20% level is given buyers some hope that the correction is over.

Looking at the daily chart of the S&P, the fall did also fall short of the 38.2% retracement of the move up from the post-pandemic low. That retracement level comes in at 3815.20. Holding above that level is also a positive sign from a longer term perspective. During the move lower post pandemic, saw the S&P plunge 35.41% to the March 2020 low before starting the bull run until January 2022 all time high. The correction off that high this year at around 20% is well short of that plunge.
