The Dow tagged a low of 34,647 before finishing at 34,687 (-0.9%). Key support at 34,750 was breached and failed to hold. Continued closes below this level would likely lead to additional weakness towards 34,500-34,250 and the 50-day moving average.
The Nasdaq ended at 14,427 (-0.8%) with the low hitting 14,413. Upper support at 14,450-14,300 failed to hold. A close below the latter would indicate additional weakness towards 14,150-14,000 and the 50-day moving average.
The S&P 500 settled at 4,327 (-0.8%) after falling to afternoon low of 4,322. Near-term and upper support at 4,325-4,300 was triggered but held. A drop below the latter would signal a further fade towards 4,275-4,250 and the 50-day moving average.
