Today's Trading Plan: Downside Momentum Starting to Pick Up

Technical Outlook: S&P 500 (SPX) dropped for a third consecutive day yesterday. If the market sells off today, it would mark the first time since June 15th that SPX sold off four straight days.  On the volume side, SPDRs S&P 500 (SPY) saw a third straight day of rising volume and came in at average levels.  GDP came in at above expectations this morning (2.9% vs 2.5% expected). This increases the chances for a rate hike at the December FOMC Meeting.  SPX tested the 20-day moving average but was rejected yesterday. As a result, a minor sell-off ensued and dropped through the 5 and 10-day moving averages.  Key support rests at 2120 on SPX today, and ideally for the bears, if it can break 2114 and close below this level, it would market a major breakthrough for them.  Otherwise, we just remain rangebound.  CBOE Market Volatility Index (VIX) rose for a third straight day, closing for once, near the highs of the day. VIX closed 7.9% higher at 15.36.  With a big earnings miss during the after hours by Amazon (AMZN), the Nasdaq (QQQ) is looking at a decent dip lower this morning.  United States Oil Fund (USO) continues to sport a nasty double top pattern that indicates it could see a drop of as much as 10% in the coming weeks.  The Russell Index (IWM) is in a clear breakdown at this point, following yesterday's sell-off and is the weakest of all the indices at the moment.  My Trades:
