SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

Due to the technical reasons I have been discussing during the last two days I maintain my short-term bullish bias, so I am looking for an oversold bounce.

Today I highlight:

SPX NYSE Advance/Decline Volume

Regarding the location of price within the corrective pattern in progress off the September 14 high (Double Zig Zag), I am switching my preferred count to the black label.

Therefore if this count is correct price should be on the verge of ending the wave (A) of the second Zig Zag. The next sequence should be a corrective bounce wave (B) followed by the last wave (C) down.

We have two consecutive bottoming candlesticks. So far the first one has to initiate the overdue rebound so if today with yesterday's Doji bulls fail again then the odds of a drop to the next obvious support at 1396 would substantially increase.

Above the current eod print it is also obvious that bulls have to reclaim 1422 (previous support now resistance).

If the short-term bounce plays out then it may be shallow.

The target should be located in the range of Tuesday's gap at 1433.81 + the 50 d MA at 1434.

In the worst case (for the Bears) price should reverse at the 20 d MA = 1441

In the weekly chart below we can see that price has almost reached the 20 w MA, which could be the "right" spot for a short-term pause.

In addition with a small bounce today, SPX could end the week with a Hammer

Regarding the short-term price action price could be unfolding an Ending Diagonal that would complete the assumed wave (A).

If today the ED plays out then, once/if Bulls achieve an eod print above 1422, the following wave (B) rebound should top next week in the range 1433,81 - 1441.

As I mentioned on Thursday I am closely monitoring VXX.

Yesterday it confirmed a bullish divergence for equity, with lower low/high and the inability to fill the opening gap down.

I expect price to fulfill the Double Top target at 35.09.

Obviously if VXX has began a short-term pull back SPX should do the opposite.

VXX going forward will be my favorite indicator in order to gauge the potential SPX rebound and it will likely offer also an interesting long set up once the correction is over.

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.
