Stocks declined last week despite the fact that it's usually a positive week for stocks historically. Volume was light, of course, but just the fact that the market declined and couldn't hold a rally is a strong sign to me that there is a strong larger downtrend in place. But after such a long and slow downtrend it has left the market in severely oversold territory, which has led to today's bounce. Again the bounce appears to be tied to "hope" of better days in Europe. And we wavers know this will not result in any sustained rally, so it merely presents a good shorting opportunity. The count is posted above, the bottom of wave i is my stop level just above 1225.
Prechter: "The Trend Is Exhausted"
The euro popped hard at the open Sunday but has left a huge gap open as a result. Gaps are usually filled, and there is no reason to doubt that the downtrend is still intact for the euro. So I'd be shorting rallies, especially until that gap is filled.
