The stock market is primed for a bounce.
Bears had their chance to take out support yesterday and failed.
Stocks held the most important line (red line below), suggesting it’s time for a bounce.

We’ve had repeated warnings from other asset classes that this is the case.
Copper (red line) suggests the S&P 500 should eventually fall to 2,600… while Lumber (green line) and Treasury yields (blue line) suggest 2,450 or even 2,350 will be the ultimate downside target.
