Even perma bears are going long. This thing is not going to stop until we open limit down.

back to back -2%; potential supports at 2750, 2700, 2650.

-2% followed by -4%.  Any further fall can fill the gap at 2,475 in the next couple of days.

And, it is a work in progress. 

VXX rose 11.02 in regular hours.

After hours, as we read this, VXX is up 13.05 in 19 minutes of trading after the close.

Note this can crash by 13 or more by the time  cash SPX/DOW market opens tomorrow.

They don't have Janet anymore to ensure that all that private debt is bought by the FED.  Donald has nothing to do with it.   This new guy might just audit the mortgage assets they have bought and find out if all are underwritten properly and not buy any more until fraud in the system of insuring this crap is fixed.

Donald could have reappointed Yellen but he went with this new guy, so he has everything to do with it. just saying

Its mindless pure momentum. Did some titanic event happen today? Nope. But people reach for reasons in the news. Its only that the market hit one of the invisible dog fences that often pen it in. Being like an elastic band it was overstretched and it snapped back with force. Will it continue as it does sometimes till SPX MACD hits the bottom trend line? Who knows? Its probably going to at least reach sub zero MACD before any real turn. There will likely be some retrace before that occurs as you see the lumps in the movements prior.
