Morning Briefing for August 27th: Breakdown

We've broken below the overnight lows from 8/25, as risk aversion themes--selling in commodities, buying of Treasuries, buying USD--are weighing on stocks (ES futures above). Selling pressure is significant, with no NYSE TICK readings even making it to +500 so far this morning. I am watching to see if we accept value below those 8/25 lows; if so, we're setting up a short-term downtrend, which is following the many non-confirmations that I have been blogging about.
