Emini S&P 500 slides lower on Friday: Brooks

Brooks Price Action Analysis for Friday, April 4

pending chart 2751

Sell climax and spike and channel bear so probably will bounce on Monday, possible to top of channel around 1870. Huge outside down bar day so probably inside day Monday. Weekly reversal bar and possible high of next several months, but still targets above equal top of weekly channel and measured move targets so might have one more leg up. Probably will test bottom of weekly channel (�short in may and go away�) and possible 1700 within next few months. Reasonable area to consider buying put spreads here or around 1900 - 1920 for 10% pullback.
