Flash crash - 11 years later...and things look similar

The Market Ear Picture

Sure, the GFC was totally different to Corona, but the human psychology has probably changed very little since then.

SPX made the epic 666 low on March 6 in 2009. The reversal was brutal, and the SPX rose approximately 83% from March 2009 to April 2010. The last phase before markets turned lower was a consolidation at highs. We broke below those range supports and then the flash crash kicked in on May 6 2010. Rest is history.
