SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

In the last weekend technical update I have discussed why I am "enlisting" an alternative long-term count, which would resolve the issue of the resumption of the intermediate up trend with a corrective up leg.

But at the moment I don't care, since we have to wait for the next pullback in order to assess the long-term EWP options.

Now I am only focused on the short-term time frame since it is my belief that the unquestionable corrective price structure from the June 4 low should be almost completed.

In addition to suggesting that price has unfolded a complex Triple Zig Zag, and within the EWP price should be now involved in the final wave (Z) it is quite obvious that price has formed a potential bearish rising wedge.

Keep in mind that rising wedges usually open the door to "violent" moves to the down side.

An ideal reversal would occur at the upper trend line, in addition one more up leg would probably allow the appearance of negative divergence in my preferred short term breadth indicator = The McClellan oscillator.

An Ending Diagonal is the "dream" terminal move, which would put the icing on the cake:

Yesterday two issues clearly stand out:

In addition here we also have a negative divergence on both the RSI and Stochastic while the MACD has failed to issue a buy signal during the last up leg

The RSI trend line support has to be breached if the EWP off the June 4 low is completed.

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.
