For a few weeks there have been unconfirmed rumors that the SP500 is going to fall… 😉 I myself was in the circle of these rumors, getting into shorts, while the index did not bother about my analysis, establishing another ATH. And today I finally made it and was able to close these unfortunate premature “Sell” with a small but positive profit. Undoubtedly, the threat of a coronovirus pandemic and the decline in production in many Asian countries due to the closure of industrial plants, as a result of the disruption of the supply chain from China, are contributing to the decline.

US500 H4 – outbreak from the ascending wedge

Looking at the index charts we will notice that the first signs of weakness appeared last week. In the H4 chart, a rising wedge formation appeared, from which the bottom was broken down on 18 February. Then we watched a re-test of the defeated wedge support from underneath and the subsequent drops, which today took on dynamics.
