FWIW, I have similar thoughts for the SOX and NBI:

I have two models I'm working with at the moment. One has the market with a small bounce Monday or Tuesday which will eventually see another low. The other has us heading straight down Sunday night. I could be wrong on both, but I don't believe the market will hold a 3rd attempt at the low.

A gentle reminder,


overswing conditions can occur in both directions. Considering how far the indices, specially $NDX, exceeded the averages that may lead to similar excess on the downside.

In fact it happened in March April when - so clearly illustrated by the chart posted by steadyquest - the index quickly dropped 1500 to cross the 200ma and traveled another 1500 to bottom in April.

On the long term price is an expression of value, on shorter term it is a display of emotional conditions. Emotions rule and can get out of control. 


On Friday, as $NDX  tested and took out a swing low, index options implied volatility was LOWER then at the swing high on September 2.

That is a screaming example of complacency. 


Important downmoves seldom end in complacency, they usually end in near panic or panic conditions.
