The selling pressure has continued from last weeks tumble, as $SPY trades below previous lows in the midday session. The ETF tested its PM highs, catching chasers early in the session, but quickly reversed that sentiment and blasted through its PM lows. Currently, we’re pushing lower off the latest pullback.
Reasonings for the continued selling are rampant; but at the end of the day, who cares? The usual “blame game” candidates are flooding headlines – but you know how that goes. Stay focused on your plan.
With the first 2-full October trading weeks in the books, we sit at a bit of crossroads; heading into the final 2-weeks of the month. We’ll either see the market turn this “franchise” around and head back up towards its ATH’s or the continued uncertainty will flood the market. Political or non-political – the market wants something stable to dig into; it’s more than obvious.
