    U.S. stock indices sold off early in the trading session as fear swept through the markets. News that Greece’s budget problems could escalate along with Portugal sent traders into the Dollar and Japanese Yen and out of higher risk assets. Lower than expected U.S. economic reports also contributed to the weakness as traders liquidated positions in anticipation of a slowdown in the economy.

What appeared to be panic selling to some may have actually been a normal retracement.

    The March E-mini S&P 500 has formed a range between 1148.00 to 1078.50. This makes 1113.25 to 1121.50 a potential upside target. The charts are also indicating a possible rally to 1842.00 to 1855.50 in the March E-mini NASDAQ and to 10371 to 10445 in the March E-mini Dow.

    Despite the near panic selling in the stock indices and an increase in demand for safety, pressure remained on the March Treasury Bonds and March Treasury Notes. This could mean that the stock break was emotional rather than fundamental.
