SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

This is just a brief follow up, my thoughts have been discussed in the last weekend technical up date so now we have to see how the pattern from the November low evolves.

The suggested Triangle played out but with a shallow thrust higher as price did not even reached the 0.618 extension = 1433 which also coincides with a cluster of resistance (November 6 peak and Bollinger Band), instead it reversed at the 50 dma= 1420.80.

Now we know where a ton of buy stops is located.

This can be considered a sign of weakness and it is a negative for the discussed bullish EWP options that consider the November low a major bottom.

However if price is unfolding a wave (B), in which case the EWP from the September high is not over yet we need to see a deterioration of breadth indicators (The biggest positive for the bulls) since so far the message is bullish.

The bearish reversal is meaningful and it is strengthened by a daily Shooting Star.

Therefore I consider that the Double Zig Zag off the November 16 low is done.

I also believe that this has not ended a likely larger rebound, since there are no negative divergences, hence I expect a multi-day pullback that could be complete by Thursday (Ahead of Friday's NFP).

I establish the expected target box for the assumed wave (B) pull back in the range 1403 (10dma) - 1393 (20dma).

Yes it is all about moving averages. Obviously the expected pullback has to hold above the 200 dma = 1385.

If the wave (B) bottoms in the target box then the next wave (C) up will have an equality target in the range 1468 -1479 (Extension targets are only a reference so we cannot rule out a failure at 1433.

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.
