The S&P 500 made another attempt at the new resistance level of 2000, but reversal below the previous day’s close warns that sellers dominate. 21-Day Twiggs Money Flow peaks below zero highlight medium-term selling pressure. Recovery above 2000 is unlikely but would indicate a relieving rally. Breach of short-term support at 1900 would warn of another decline; failure of 1870 would confirm.
* Target calculation: 1900 – ( 2000 – 1900 ) = 1800

Recovery of 21-day Twiggs Money Flow above zero would indicate medium-term buying pressure; respect is less likely but would warn of another decline.
* Target calculation: 19000 + ( 19000 – 17500 ) = 20500
