SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

The rebound is much stronger then I was expecting with price easily recovering above both the 10 & 20 d MA and achieving an eod print above the 0.618 retracement of the down leg off the October 5 lower high.

We have a daily Marubozu, which could be an exhaustion candlestick if today we have a small range body or a reversal bar.

Obviously the question that you should ask me is:

Is the correction over?

I am not stubborn, I never obstinate with a given EW count, but so far I am firmly convinced that EW wise the pattern from the September 14 high needs a pending wave (C) down in order to be considered completed.

Therefore if I have not wrongly labeled the current rebound (off last Friday's lod), once is over it should be fully retraced:

But in order to be on the right side of the price's path it is mandatory that price MUST reverse today since both momentum and breadth indicators are threatening to kill the short-term bearish set up:

It is not only what could be described as a biased opinion since it would be very odd that SPX has resumed the intermediate up trend without the banks.

Below in the daily chart of KBE it seems reasonable to consider that price is going in the opposite direction.

Lastly lets watch VIX.

Yesterday's hammer may be suggesting that SPX "oversold" rebound is getting close to an end.

Tomorrow I will not publish the short-term follow up.

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.
