  1. Daring the Downside

    by , 10-18-2014 at 06:10 PM
    Many traders watch the 200 day moving average, currently coming in at 1906.02 on the SP 500. Based on Friday’s close of 1886.76, the market is now 19.26 points below.

    Wednesday was an interesting day, to say the least, and the 173-point decline in the Dow wasn't even the biggest story. That's because the Dow was down 460-points just a couple of hours before the close, and the day ended with a 287-point rally of the low.
