Analysis of S&P 500 from QuickTakesPro’s Michael Kahn:S&P 500 (SPX) – At the time of this broadcast, SPX was around 2008.02 up 18.39 today. The red line from the previous high in September is the key level at about 2020 that was acting as support. It broke below that and has remained below the past two days. It could have a reversal today, but it usually doesn’t mean anything unless there is follow through tomorrow.

It is well above its 50 and 200 day moving averages of 2002.11 and 1947.63, respectively.
