There is no sign yet on the daily chart, however, with 21-day Twiggs Money Flow respecting the zero line from below. Breach of support at 1900 would warn of another decline.

NYSE Short Sales

NYSE short sales and daily volume are only published 24 hours after the close of trade, but are still a useful indication of where the market is headed. Short sales over 500 million on Monday, remain elevated. Keep an eye out for any increase above 600 million this week — which would warn of rising selling pressure and a likely breach of support.
