SPX: Follow Up of the Short Term EWP

By: TheWaveTrading | Thursday, December 20, 2012

I am almost on holiday and tomorrow I will not be able to post the daily technical follow up. This is just a brief comment to let you know that the Ending Diagonal idea I showed yesterday is now my preferred count.

The pattern from today's lod suggests that price is unfolding a double Zig Zag. This pattern has an extension target at 1449.

If the Ending Diagonal plays out then price is very close to complete a Zig Zag off the November 16 low, although I am not sure how next week the Santa bullish bias can affect the assumed ending pattern.

As I have discussed for a long time the approaching top can either be the "bearish" wave (B) from the September's high or the wave (A) of a larger Zig Zag withing the Ending Diagonal options (Break out above the September high scenarios). At the moment both options are equally possible. Until price does not complete the November's up leg and begins a retracement there is no way to have confidence on any scenario.

Tomorrow If I see anything relevant I will post it on Twitter/Stocktwits.

Next week until January 3 I will be away. If I have time I will post a brief update during the weekend.

Just in case I wish everyone a wonderful Merry Christmas.

Enjoy the weekend.

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.
