The SPX 500 accelerated downward after prices lost grip on the 2100 figure, delivering a third consecutive day of losses. Near-term support is at 2089.40, the 38.2% Fibonacci expansion, with a break below that on a daily closing basis exposing the 50% level at 2081.20. Alternatively, a turn above the 23.6% Fib at 2099.50 opens the door for a test of the July 31 high at 2115.90.
