Brief update

I maintain the two potential patterns discussed the last time on October 19, 2013:

  1. Double Zig Zag Option: From the July 2012 low price is unfolding the second wave (B) of a Double Zig Zag, which began at the July 2008 high. The theoretical target of the assumed wave (B) could be located in the range 1.4053 - 1.4424 Once the wave (B) is in place it will be followed by the last wave (Y) down that could have a similar size of the preceding wave (A) = - 0.29 €.

  1. Triangle: From the October 2008 low price is forming a Triangle wave (B). Instead of the second wave (B) price is now unfolding the wave (E) of the Triangle. We can use the same price levels discussed above for the target of the wave (E). Once the wave (B) is in place it will be followed by a "thrust" wave (C) down which has a measured length of - 0.3185 € (The Eur would lose the parity).

Elliott Wave wise the issue is to establish the correct pattern of the advance from the July 2012, which is clearly corrective, but this is a difficult task.

We can make the case that price is unfolding a Triple Zig Zag.

We could agree that the first Double Zig Zag was completed at the February 2013 high and the third Zig Zag began at the July 2013 low. If this idea is correct the third wave (A) was established at the October 2013 high. Now we have to establish where is the correct spot for the third wave (B).

Possible Options:

1. Triangle: Price formed a Triangle wave (B) which was completed on February 27. The following thrust can be counted as impulsive but it could be the first wave of a larger impulsive sequence.

2. Running Flat: The wave (B) was established at the February 3 higher low with a Running Flat. If this count is correct probably a wave (IV) pullback is underway which will be followed by the last wave (V) up.

3. Ending Diagonal: From the November 7 low price is forming an Ending Diagonal wave (Z). If this is the case we are now in the wave (III).

With more price information I hope I will be able to find the right path.

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.
