Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - July 31

The market has finally sold off in what looks like the start of a stronger correction.  The wave today looks clearly like a W3 and further downside is likely. We might see a bounce tomorrow or Monday and the key levels to watch are 1955-1962, a counter rally can not go past these levels. Also, if the market fails to recapture its 50 DMA in the next few sessions, the Intermediate Trend will turn bearish as well and that will be confirmation of a multi-week or even multi-month correction. There were several headlines today that caused the sell off, but it's not really clear to me which one was the main reason. One thing I found odd is that safety assets sold off too, which usually doesn't happen during a stock market sell off.  One of the reasons I am in Gold was because I expected a Gold rally once the market found a top, but so far it hasn't moved all that much so we'll see.

Also, we issued our first ever short call yesterday on the new site we launched three months ago and it was very well timed. We are offering free trials, so feel free to check it out.

The short term outlook continues to be bearish and now we see a potential count for stronger selling. We recommend traders with a higher risk tolerance to start building short positions with a stop at 1991.39

* Trends are not trade signals. Trends are posted for situational awareness only and does not take into account wave counts, technical or fundamental conditions of the market. While mechanically trading the posted trends is feasible, keep in mind that these are lagging indicators and as such are prone to whipsaws and I personally do not use nor recommend them to initiate or close positions in the market without taking into consideration other factors.
