Eye on Shanghai vs SPX Chart

By -

After the Shanghai Composite’s July 9 low, the Chinese government enjoyed some brief success, managing to goose the index from 3587 to 4185, or by nearly 17% — until today, that is. The index melted down nearly 9%, closing on the lows, and has the right look of the initiation of a new down-leg within the still-dominant near-term downtrend.

Meanwhile, the S&P 500 remains within its 6-month sideways range, although the price structure once again is approaching a test of key support in and around its up-sloping 200-Day EMA, now at 2060/56. That level must contain any forthcoming weakness to avert a press to 2010-1980 thereafter–within an increasingly-toppy medium-term pattern.
