The S&P 500 did an outstanding job for most of the early session to hold critical support around 2,980. But that level of support failed just after midnight, resulting in a decline to around 2,925. With option expiration this week, all of this becomes important, there are significant open interest levels in the S&P 500 cash market around 2,800 to 2,900. These levels could quickly start to pull markets lower, should the sellers begin to have some confidence.
We can see we just tested resistance again around 2,980, and failed. It will likely not a fun first day to the new week.
