Stock Market update -Sep 6th

Another week of losses in the market, with the indexes closing down a little over 3%. The S&P500 may still test the low of August and/or last October, so fasten your seatbelt! The monthly Jobs report on Friday was kind of weak too.

Forget about all the talk about the Fed raising interest rates, or the problems in China, or the Dollar, and how it might affect the markets. Just trade what you see on the charts -"only price pays" (Brian Shannon). Trade what you see, not what you think.

No strength in any of the big names like NFLX, AAPL, AMZN, GOOGL, BAC, GS, XOM...
Implied Volatility (for Options traders) will probably remain high until after the Fed meeting this month.

GMCR and TWTR may be finally getting some buyers. Likewise for some of the beaten down stocks in Energy and Gold Mining -we could be close to a bottom in those two sectors. However, only 'trade what you see, not what you think'. AAPL is expected to make some new product announcements next week.

The Shanghai market may have much further to fall (below)!
