Chartology: The Next Leg

How much longer will the sell-off continue? Seems like a good time to consult the charts with technical analyst Dan Fitzpatrick of StockMarketMentor.com

I’m bearish right now on the S&P 500, reveals Fitzpatrick. When I look out to the 200-day moving average in this index, I get concerned. I don’t know if there’s even been a time when the markets have had such as sharp sell off and then returned to this key moving average so quickly. Usually there are multiple tests.

80% of stocks in the MSCI World Index are trading above their 200-day moving average, adds Tim Seymour. That’s also a worrisome sign.
