SPX: Follow Up of The Short Term EWP

I am clueless if the last assumed wave up will be launched from 1398, which is the persistent support or from 1390-1385.

I have mentioned that the SPX Bollinger Band set up is calling for an "imminent" resolution of this tedious sideways move.

Yesterday price rebounded off the lower BB leaving a potential bottoming candlestick (Doji), in addition the 10 d has reached the 20 d MA which should not issue a bearish cross under the scenario of a bullish resolution.

I will maintain a short-term bullish bias as long as price does not breach the trend line support in force since the June lows, which today stands at 1381.

Despite the unclear short term EWP the McClellan Oscillator has issued a buy signal suggesting that price could attempt a break out to the upside.

The VIX potential BB buy equity set up did not play out, but I still believe that the odds of at least a pullback are larger than an extension higher.

At least a short-term top would be confirmed by closing yesterday's gap up at 17.43

We cannot rule out that the VIX could establish a higher low if the 20 d MA holds.

The size of the expected "retreat" will give us clues regarding the potential upside move of SPX.

We are approaching two major event risks:

Tomorrow: ECB meeting
On Friday: NFP

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.
