The E-SPU plunged about 8 points in a matter of minutes after hitting an intraday high at 1245.25. Today's high, if not hurdled, represents the third high in the 1245-1249 area since 7/29, which to me also represents further development of a meaningful topping pattern to the July 7 upleg (from 1170.75) and to the year-long upleg (from the 1060 level). We remain short, with stops lowered to just above today's high.
