The stock market indices had a very negative session today. The day started out with gap downs, they went down all day, and only in the last hour they bounced back to pare back the gains.

The Nasdaq traded 1 3/4 billion shares and had a 6 to 1 negative volume ratio. board was nearly all red. (PCLN) was down 18.18 to 1459.02, Google Inc. (GOOG) down 2.87 to 783.07, Inc.

Stepping back and reviewing the hourly chart patterns, the indices opened lower, went down all day, until the last hour when they rallied back, but seem to be short covering off of key support.

Let’s see what happens tomorrow, but today has been a very negative, critical day to the downside. Perhaps the trend has been broken. We’ll have to wait and see.

Good Trading!
