REVERSAL after this "Selling Stampede: door to 4000 open"

"....The S&P 500 has lost ground in eight out of the last nine trading days, and ten out of the last 12, as a selling stampede has gripped the equity market. Many analysts had the 4200 level as their line in the sand. When that went by the wayside in this week's selloff, the selling picked up.
No one knows when the selling will abate but the door to S&P 4000 has now opened. This is not the type of market to wander aimlessly by "hoping" and "guessing" what to do next. Investors without a plan are now finding out just how difficult this backdrop is.
This "dip" has now morphed into a "correction" for the NASDAQ (-12%), while the S&P has now joined in with a 10+% decline. The Russell 2000 small caps have been in their own BEAR market for a while.
In a recent 5-day period investors witnessed Crude oil rally 9+%. 10-year Treasury yields have been on a one-way move for what seems like forever now. In that same period, the 10-year Treasury yield rose 29 basis points and settled right near 5%
Finally, Gold. In the same five trading days, the metal rallied 5.5% breaking above two key resistance levels and the downtrend that has been in place since the Spring.
By themselves, these moves are big, but the fact that they've all occurred in the same five-day period is extraordinary. Bespoke Investment Group;
There have only been two other periods where gold and crude oil each rallied more than 5% while the 10-year yield jumped more than 25 basis points. The first was in August 1990 following Iraq's invasion of Kuwait which led up to the first Gulf War, while the second period was during the Financial Crisis when there were three separate occurrences (September 2008, January 2009, and March 2009).
I'll leave everyone with this;

Only 14 stocks in the Nasdaq 100 are above their 100-day simple moving averages. This can go lower, but it is officially "pretty darned low". https://t.co/LfC5t6riKr

When there is an accelerated move, the moment of the 50-200MA cross often marks a reversal point for prices. Also per my 2011 study at https://t.co/K5rm7F5ku3, owning the golden cross is barely better than buy and hold. https://t.co/FsQRkGSLbX

"...China's embattled property developer Evergrande will be under the spotlight again following media reports last week that it has held talks with creditors who opposed its restructuring plan.
Asian markets on Monday will also give their initial reaction to news over the weekend of an expected U.S.-Sino summit between presidents Joe Biden and Xi Jinping next month. Tech and chip stocks could be particularly sensitive.
On top of that, the U.S. earnings season rolls on, Japan's corporate reporting floodgates open, and month-end flows across all asset classes could be powerful. Oh, and there is the Federal Reserve's interest rate decision on Wednesday too.
Investors in Asia wade into that sea of event risk in slightly better shape than might immediately appear to be the case, having been hit hard by the surge in U.S. bond yields and widespread tightening of tightening of financial conditions.
But the MSCI emerging market index and Asia ex-Japan index's falls of around 0.6% last week were notably shallower than the MSCI Work index's 2% slide.
Their falls in October are both on track to be around 3.5%, not quite as bad as the MSCI World's and S&P 500's respective declines of 4.2% and 5.4%. Perhaps a period of relative outperformance for Asian and emerging market assets lies ahead?
China's recent economic and market signals, at least, are brightening a little.
Japan's bonds and currency remain under intense scrutiny ahead of Tuesday's Bank of Japan decision and guidance. The yen rebounded around 0.5% against the dollar on Friday for its best day in three weeks, and the 10-year Japanese Government Bond yield eased a couple of basis points.
But the yen and JGBs go into the meeting very much on the weak side. The BOJ is inching closer to ending negative interest rates and phasing out ultra-accommodative monetary policy, but probably not this week, even though inflation in the capital Tokyo unexpectedly accelerated in October."

... but this is next 100 SPX points. In this wild market SPX could rise 100 points in 3 days & then drop more than 100...

Late October Low Lines Up
Ive been banging my seasonal weakness drum through Q3 warning of Octoberphobia, volatility, late-October lows and turnarounds. Todays negative action aligns with that narrative. Best Six Months start next week. Rising 10-year yields, some notable
