I maintain as a probable scenario that price from the October 2013 low is forming an Ending Diagonal, in which case SPX is now involved in unfolding the last wave (V).

If the Ending Diagonal pans out (Terminal Elliott Wave pattern) SPX should conclude a Double Zig Zag from the March 2009 lows opening the door to a major reversal.

The assumed wave (V) of the Ending Diagonal idea has to unfold a corrective pattern, usually either a Zig Zag or a Double Zig Zag.

If the overlapping up leg from the April 28 low can be considered an Expanded Ending Diagonal/Leading Diagonal then we would have two options:

  1. If it were an Expanded Ending Diagonal, at last Friday's hod price should have completed with a Double Zig Zag the wave (A) of a larger Zig Zag, in which case the wave (B) pullback should bottom in the range 1862-1844 (Blue labelling). Once the wave (B) is in place it will be followed by the last wave (C) up that will complete the Ending Diagonal.
  2. If it were a Leading Diagonal then last Friday's hod would be the wave (I) of a pending impulsive sequence that will complete a Double Zig Zag from the April 11 low establishing the wave (V) of the Ending Diagonal (Red labelling). If this is the correct pattern a wave (2) pullback should bottom in the range 1872 - 1866

In addition to the two options discussed above we cannot rule out that Friday's hod is the wave (b) of a Triangle, which would establish the wave (B) of a Double Zig Zag. if this is the correct pattern the following thrust wave (Y) will complete the Ending Diagonal.

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.
