SPX 2-Minute Chart Markets Sell Off on Fears of Russia Invading Ukraine

Polish jokes were popular in America a few decades back but today was no joke. Poland's Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski spooks the markets after words from his television interview come across the tape at 1:30 PM: "Russia is about to invade." This started the panic selling. Several traders unlatched windows threatening to jump as the selling beget selling; fortunately the windows were on the first floor.

The SPX drops from 1931 to 1914 in a heartbeat, only 40 minutes, -0.9%. A very interesting aspect is that the low at 1913.77 took out Friday's intraday LOD which is a bearish indication. Taking a blue crayon, the sideways channel through 1914-1922 is clearly visible. Bulls win above 1922. Bears win below 1914. This information is for educational and entertainment purposes only.
