Who broke down first? The Shanghai Index or Europe?

Last May the Shanghai Composite first broke below key support of a multi-year flag pattern at (1) in the chart below. The Power of the Pattern suggested at that time that its "global impact could be large!" (see post here). Despite Fed intervention, Bernanke-Claus has not been able to keep global assets from falling in price (see post here).
Now the Shanghai Index is breaking below the support line of another flag/pennant pattern at (2) above.
The 500 index has declined at least 9% the last three times the VIX has found itself at this price zone at (3). A break below line (4) could see the 500 do a repeat performance.
The 9-pack below represents our new "Global Dashboard" service, sent to subscribers this past week. It was reflecting that Emerging Markets (EEM) and Europe (EFA) looked to be creating Bearish Head & Shoulders patterns.

The breaking of another support line by the Shanghai Index could well put extreme pressure on the "Head & Shoulders" pattern in the Emerging Markets, Europe and commodities.
These situations make support line (4) very important for the S&P 500!
