Stocks Still Struggle to Mount Rally; Euro Completed 5 Waves Down from High
The best guess here is that the market is unfolding in a "flat correction", which is derived from the 3 wave rally to a new high. According to EWP, this type of behavior lends itself to flat corrections. So that means a 5 wave decline for wave C within that flat correction is underway now. So the market should hit, and perhaps slightly exceed, the 1250 level before bottoming. The action surrounding 1250 will be important to the bigger picture. A sharp reversal and rally near that level will make it probable a bottom is in and that the market is on its way to new highs on the year. But if the market accelerates the downtrend and drops significantly through 1250, it may mean a bigger decline is underway than expected. So I'm watching the action around 1250 closely.
Learn Elliott Wave Principle
The evidence of a major euro top is strong. Normally when I say that though, I'm proven wrong shortly afterward. But the evidence speaks for itself. Momentum diverged on the final push to a new high, then a head and shoulders pattern formed, followed by a 5 wave impulsive decline. So the evidence is strong a major euro top is in, and any sharp rally that occurs I'd see as an opportunity to get short, or add to existing short positions.
