As Friday’s trading action is coming to a close in a couple of hours before the Labour Day weekend, an interesting observation to note is this daily chart of the SPX.
Since the beginning of August, gaps on the open in both directions have pretty much occurred on a daily basis (blue box). When the same thing happened in the last quarter of 2018 (blue box), we saw a rapid plunge in the space of a few days.
Both pink boxes shows that a similar setup may be forming. The question is, will it retest the December 2018 lows anytime soon?
