A sustained move under 3894.75 will indicate the presence of sellers. If this move generates enough downside momentum then look for the selling to possibly extend into the minor bottom at 3807.50.

Taking out 3982.25 will shift momentum to the upside. This could trigger an acceleration into the short-term 50% level at 4055.25.
