Entry Date: 05/20/2014; Long: 52.88; Stop: Below trend line; Target: 77

Reason: Head & Shoulder

In the weekly chart of NDX we can see a potential Head & Shoulder reversal pattern.

If the horizontal resistance at 3627 is not breached odds would favour the formation of the right shoulder.

If this bearish pattern pans out the theoretical target is located at the trend line support in force since the 2009 lows which coincides with the 0.5 retracement of the advance from the November 2012 to the March high (14.5% decline from today's hod).

The right shoulder could have been completed with a wedge. In the case of SQQQ it is a bullish Falling Wedge.

Even though it is not certain that the wedge is done I anticipated the confirmation since today's Doji may form a Double Bottom within the assumed wedge.

So I am long with a stop below the lower converging trend line. The theoretical target of the inverted Head & shoulder is located at 77.

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.
