The short-term time frame is definitely bullish but a short-term pause is approaching.

The trend has reversed from down to up and since:

Reasons for a short term pause:

We have an eod print above the 0.618 retracement and at the last "bearish trend line.

The "rebound" off last Friday's lod, with one more push up, will become impulsive.

A fiver up will "guarantee" at least one more similar up leg.

If impulsive then it will strengthen the option of a Zig Zag vs the Triangle idea discussed yesterday.

Short Term EWP:

Yesterday's sideways action should be "translated" as a consolidation that should allow for today more upside.

I think that price is either tracing an Ending Diagonal wave (5) or a Triangle wave (4):

The assumed continuation pattern is probably induced by the expectation of a positive surprise from today's NFP.

I suspect that an initial bullish reaction should evolve into eod weakness.

Once the "projected" fiver is done it is reasonable to expect 2-3 days pullback but since this move has caught the majority by surprise we should expect that dip buyers would get nervous of missing more upside pretty quickly.

But first, lets see where price stops and then we will look at the retracement.

Keep in mind that next week we have ECB meeting, EU summit meeting then on Dec 13 FOMC day.

And I have the feeling that this time an Euro crisis deal is in the cards.

Have a great weekend.

The main objective of this project is to share my views on several markets and asset classes.

In the initial stage TWT website will be a free service.

My main focus will be the equity market with SPX being the leader but I will also follow US equity sectors, major European indices, fixed income, currencies and commodities markets.

My analysis is based upon traditional Technical Analysis, Elliot Wave guidelines and investor sentiment.

My goal is to establish the most likely path that the price of a particular asset will undertake and profit through ETF instruments both on the long and short side and mainly with leveraged ones (2 x & 3 x).

The advantage of ETF investments is that it allows getting involved in equity indices & sectors, currencies, fixed income, commodities etc.

Therefore the main purpose of TWT will be to establish investment strategies regardless if the market is in an up trend or in a down trend, leveraging the chosen scenario while managing the risk by establishing protective stop losses.

Hence I will always define the risk, I will try to let winners run the wave and I will cut the losses if my strategy is wrong.
