SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

I don't have much to add regarding my short-term scenario of SPX.

Yesterday price action does not suggest that the move off the June 4 low is finished, hence the short-term trend in my opinion remains up.

So once again I show the same daily chart.

Here I highlight the overall appearance of a bearish rising wedge; therefore we cannot rule out one more "last" exhaustion up leg towards the upper converging trend line.

At the moment there are several intermediate time frame options so I have no idea if the approaching top belongs to a larger corrective pattern off the April top (Blue labeling) or if the intermediate up trend off the March 09 low has been taken up after a shallow interruption (Black labeling).

In the following weekly chart we can see that price is approaching a critical resistance zone = 1440 - 1447 where price has to reverse otherwise, on the upside, the there is only "thin air" until a weekly gap at 1478.49.

Yesterday I suggested to monitor closely NDX, since there is 3-days potential bearish candlestick set up. But maybe it is worthless if AAPL is unfolding a Flat, which will result into one more up leg.

So it is undeniable that the short-term price structure could allow more upside, maybe a "blow out" move.

But it remains striking the "impressive" divergence of the last two days between VIX and SPX, which is suggesting a potential higher low.

Which one is going to give up?

I guess we will have the answer tomorrow with the price reaction to the FOMC news at 12:30 (ET usa).

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.
