Stocks limp into Friday technically weakened and vulnerable to more selling.
Stocks sold off Thursday in the worst day of the last year and a half, with the Dow down 358 to 16,990 and the S&P 500 off 43, or 2.1 percent to 2,035. The selling was fueled by global growth concerns and uncertainty about when the Fed will move to raise interest rates.
"It (the S&P 500) just resolved the seven-month range to the low end. The question is now how much downside follow-through do we get," said Scott Redler, partner with T3Live.com. "The next real level doesn't come into play until 1980. That's only about a 7-7.5 percent move from the highs. In the scheme of corrections, that shouldn't be so surprising. We finally did close below the 200-day in the S&P and that was the last index standing, joining the Dow and the Russell."
