Powell finally gave the message that market watchers have been demanding. Now, let’s hope they don’t live to regret it.

This was a blanket shellacking that has some contrarian overtures. However, it’s too early to talk about being oversold as the batter is joined to push the market down to the June lows.

Today’s Session

The market is off lowest pre-open levels, which gives us good points to watch for pivots.  Key technical levels overall are still in place. Even though Wall Street is playing Taps, the June rally still sports impressive gains.

Make no mistake, Wall Street wants to see this market hammered. Especially hedge funds that got wrecked with late spring shorts but have now reloaded.
