Stocks opened slightly higher this morning, after Asian and European markets rebounded overnight, driven higher by gains in commodities and commodity-based equities. However, U.S. markets have faded as the trading sessions has unfolded, with the Dow now down 10 or so.
More importantly and on a technical basis, stocks have broken short-term support and are definitely trending down. I am watching 1,250 on the S&P 500, which is a key support level. if we break that level, we should trade significantly lower.
