SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

Yesterday SPX had a choppy session to the down side. Absence of impulsive action but maybe it was not an uneventful day.

Last Friday I posted a potential impulsive up leg off September 5 with a "thrust" out of a triangle wave (4).

If this count is correct then the possibility of a high is large if today there is follow through to the down side or if a rebound attempt fails and establishes a lower high.

If price breaches the trend line support odds of some type of a top at 1474.51 will substantially increase. (Some type of a top = the corrective up leg off the June 4 low is completed)

Daily RSI and Stochastic are displaying weakness signals:

The weakness of the McClellan Oscillator is more intense; here we have a bearish cross of its Stochastic and quite a pronounced drop of the oscillator, despite yesterday's shallow SPX pullback.

Hence maybe Friday's Shooting Star has marked a peak.

If the up leg from the June 4 low is done, even though it looks like science fiction that this market will ever drop, SPX should begin a corrective phase to the down side which should observe some proportionality both time wise and with the size that price has traveled measured by the Fibonacci retracements. Just as a reminder the 0.382 retracement is at 1395.

Today I will monitor AAPL since yesterday's Hanging Man + a potential exhaustion gap can be a reasonable candidate of a having established the top of the impulsive up leg from the May 18 low.

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.
