On Wednesday, after the Dow plunged 608.01 points, I wrote a piece called “The #MAGA Stock Market Trendline Is Broken” in which I showed how the U.S. stock market’s sharp decline caused several major stock indices to break below their important uptrend lines that have formed in early-2016. I described this breakdown as a “very important change of trend.” On Thursday, the Dow rose 399.95 points and the S&P 500 rose 49.46, but I said that the market bounce did not negate the bearish technical developments that took place on Wednesday. Sure enough, the Dow fell 296 points or 1.2% on Friday, while the S&P 500 fell 1.7%, which confirms the technical breakdown under the important trendline that formed in early-2016 (I was waiting for a solid close below this level on the weekly chart).

This week’s sell-off caused the S&P 500 to break below its uptrend line that began in early-2016. The next major technical support and price target to watch is the 2,550 to 2,600 support zone that formed at the lows earlier this year.

Unlike the S&P 500, the Dow Jones Industrial Average still has not broken below its key uptrend line. If the Dow closes below this uptrend line in a convincing manner on the weekly chart (possibly next week if the sell-off continues), the next important support level and price target to watch is the 23,250 to 23,500 zone that formed in early-2018.
