Where is the next major support?

The market is getting cheaper by the day. Some people are worried, while others are happy. The most common question I faced recently is “Is it a good time to enter”. It is really impossible to buy at the lowest, but I shall attempt to show the next major support for S&P500 and STI using classical technical analysis.

S&P 500

At the time of writing, S&P 500 at 2600 has dropped about 23% from its high of 3393.

Using Fibonacci Retracement, the next Fib 61.8% support is at 2355. This is about 30% from the market top.

 

STI

At the time of writing, STI at 2679 has dropped about 17% from its recent high of 3230. In 2003, STI fell 18% due to SARS.

At 2680, its has just entered the support zone from 2680 to 2520. I think buyers will come in at this 2500 zone. Whether this major support will hold is anyone’s guess.
