The charts say SPY and DIA (S&P and Dow-30 ETF) are testing the 61.8% retracement level from 2007-2009 peak to trough.  Perhaps the reason why we sold off so hard on Friday (along with the Goldman fraud charge).  Adam Hewison of MarketClub warned about this level a few days ago in a chart video.  If you click on the charts below you can see critical support levels that need to hold and see 61.8% retracement levels, uptrend channels from the March 2009 low and February 2010 low, which was pierced by SPY on Friday.  The Dow held up a little better.  Did you notice that SPY lost 1.59% while DIA only lost 1.24% on Friday?  It's also interesting that SPY and DIA volume are at multi-year lows, matching 2006 and early 2007.  By the way the buyers of XRT, KBE (KBW Bank Index) put protection on Thursday are up big.  Charts are courtesy of FreeStockCharts.com.
