In our Logic-Over-Emotion Investing blog postings we try to feature an investment idea or chart from one of our recent Asbury Research premium reports.

This report is particularly significant this week.

 1) A Major Top Was Confirmed In the S&P 500 Tuesday (Aug 2nd)

…at the May 2nd high that targets an initial -8% decline to 1150 (red highlights on chart below).  Below the market, the next key support levels (green highlights) to watch are 1249, the 2011 low that was set on March 16th, and 1227 to 1220 which represents the November and April 2010 benchmark highs.

Since that report. the S&P 500 has declined by 104 points or -8% in just 4 trading sessions to meet its 1150 downside target earlier today.
