SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

Sorry but today I don't have any inspiration to write a "productive" technical update so I will keep it extremely short.

Yesterday bears failed to trigger sell stops below the critical pivot support at 1422, instead dip buyers prevented a slump and achieved a potential bullish candlestick with a large lower shadow.

Despite the set up clearly favors the bulls I remain skeptical as long as bulls seal the deal by reclaiming the 20 d MA, which stands at 1445.

The internal structure of the down leg off the October 18 lower high is not clearly impulsive hence maybe we don't have a terminal pattern.

This is why in the daily chart I put a question mark at yesterday's lod.

This price action at a pivot support + positive divergences on both the McClellan oscillator and the RSI could allow the end of the corrective pattern from the September 14 high. But we still have a sell signal issued by the Stochastic on October 19 that has not been reversed.

If yesterday's bottoming candlestick fails then the obvious potential bottom is located in the area of 1396.

We have to play close attention to the McClellan Oscillator since it keeps showing muted selling pressure creating a large positive divergence. This is a serious warning that price is involved in a bottoming process.

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.
