S&P E-Minis are consolidating but remain soft. A bearish outlook follows last week’s reversal and break of a key short-term support at 3900.00, the Sep 7 low. This confirmed a resumption of the bear cycle that started mid-August and has paved the way for a move towards 3819.54, a Fibonacci retracement. Key short-term resistance has been defined at 4175.00, the Sep 13 high. Initial resistance is at 4002.92, the 20-day EMA.
