You can officially draw a down trend line on the SPY daily chart.
Two lower-highs is enough to declare a change in price action. Especially when it is confirmed by higher volume on the days we close lower and below the open.
Accumulation and distribution takes time because institutions would prefer to not make their play obvious. If you are diligent you can spot it. We are clearly trading much higher volume on negative days and light volume on rallies.
Thursday June 11 had half the volume on a gap higher than Friday June 12 (see chart below).
Using simple Fibonacci numbers and the move higher from October 2014 to May 2015 a 50% retracement would be the $198 area.
