A Backtest or More?

Today should shape up as a battle between holding a much-cherished round number (SPX 2900) and backtesting solid support (the January highs.)

The futures are off about 5, with yesterday’s downside target of 2878.50-2881.95 still looking good — if SPX will relinquish 2900.

Much will depend on the yen, which is strengthening in the midst of the EM turmoil…

…and the 10Y, which has been in a holding pattern for months.  It looks ripe for a breakdown, but that would almost certainly invert the curve and usher in more than a backtest.
