Here is my "You Are Here" ( see arrow) map of the markets tonight. Note that 5 waves down ended November 24 to end Wave 3 down. There has been a three wave rally since that low, labled A-B-C covering the past week or so. C may have ended today, or may end tomorrow, or could extend into next week. The take away is that once C is complete, Wave 4 up is complete and Wave 5 of 5 down will commence to new lows, under 7500 on the DJI and maybe way, way under 7500.
This is a good example of how I use Elliott Wave. The market will do whatever it wants to do, but I have identified a typical three wave pattern that is often a prelude to an new impulsive wave to the opposite direction. It's these wonderful impulse waves that we lay in wait for and that is where you will find me in the coming days.
