  1. The S&P 500 traded near a key potential support level on 12/6/2018. If the index closes below this trend line there could be more selling in the future.
  2. The level we will be watching will be the 2630 level.
  3. RSI is still below the important 50 line.
  4. The S&P 500 made a high on 1/26/2018 at 1/26/2018 and RSI also made a new high of 90.50.
  5. When the S&P 500 made a new high on 9/21/2018 2940.91 RSI did not make a new high to confirm the new high. RSI only moved up to 68.42. So, this was a negative divergence which is a caution sign going forward.
