Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 26






















The market got very close to making an all-time high early in the morning but reversed after hitting a high of 2398. There is a good chance we will see a new high in the next few sessions so we might get the "Sell in May" I have been talking about after all. I think the tax cut proposals by Trump is long overdue and I know, as a businessman, that lower taxes for business encourage growth, investment and stronger economic expansion. I am not the biggest fan of Trump, but I really like the tax plan. I just hope they pass it without all the typical political drama in Washington.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 25






















If there was any doubt yesterday the trend had turned bullish, today's follow-through action solidifies the trend change. I was expecting a pullback before more upside but momentum seems firmly behind the bulls. in fact, I wouldn't be surprised to see a new all-time high before any substantial correction at this point. The NASDAQ closed at an all-time high, so maybe that index shows where the broader market is headed for the next few weeks. I will get back in during the correction, just hope it doesn't take forever.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 23






















The market rallied past resistance today and the trend has turned positive again. The outcome of the French election is the excuse so not sure how sustainable the rally is. But the bottoming pattern has been correct and now that resistance has been cleared, I am looking for a 5 wave pattern to confirm the market is in for another bullish cycle. If 2361 holds the coming pullback, then it's a sign prices will be headed towards 2400.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 21






















The market went into a minor correction today but its too early to tell if there will be another challenge to resistance. The bottoming pattern looks like it could hold but with the French elections this weekend and other geo-political issues, the market could find an excuse to revisit the 2322 low again. The one thing that could be a positive and one which I am paying close attention to, is the tax cuts  proposal next week by Trump. I hope he cuts taxes at the higher end as this will incentivize the economy. I live in a state where basically 50% of my income (in Federal and State taxes combined) above a certain level goes to the government. And what incentive do I have as an entrepreneur to work more when the government takes an equal or higher share of my earnings? it's ridiculous and highly damaging to a free market economy. If they want more money, they should focus on being more efficient first before asking working people for half their income.

Anyway, hope everyone has a good weekend!

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 20






















Prices rallied substantially today and made a higher high just below the resistance level I mentioned couple of days ago. If prices manage to make a lower high on the retrace, there is a good chance the correction is over. However, a breach of recent lows means there is still room to go down before a bottom is found. I am playing it safe, so I sold my long positions for a minor profit and looking to re-enter on the retrace.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 18






















Prices rose early morning to make a higher high but got stopped at resistance and reversed  for most of the day. The bottoming pattern still remains but recent lows should not be breached as that would mean more selling ahead. I meant to raise my stops to break even in the event of a bullish open but I got lazy. So now I am just hoping bulls can regain control in the next session or two.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 18






















Prices retraced some of yesterday's gains and and there is now a bottoming pattern in place. I favor a higher high for the current bounce but the real test will come at the 2366 resistance level. I went long at 2342 and I am setting a tight stop just in case.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 17






















The market managed to mount a decent counter-rally to test the declining Trend Average in today's session. If the TA is re-captured, the bulls have a decent chance of staging a good rally to top in May. But if prices can't get past resistance, then we will see further downside to come in the near future. I am going to be patient and jump back in once the market makes up its mind.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 13






















The market attempted to bounce earlier in the morning but bears took control after Trump dropped the mega-bomb in Afghanistan. The news was just basically an excuse to test the 2322 level mentioned a few days ago, so now we have to see of this level will hold or give way for a test of the next support level at 2300. I lucked out and managed to actually profit by selling my longs earlier in the morning and will be buying as close to 2322 tomorrow if I see a possibility for a bottom.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 12






















The market has continued to struggle and it has closed under the 50 DMA for the first time since November 2016. If bulls fail to re-capture 2350 in the next few sessions, there will be substantial  downside in the next few weeks. I went long at 2343 with a stop at 2337, so we'll see if the market can reverse itself tomorrow.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 11






















Prices broke down as expected in today's session and went below the first level of support (2344) early in the morning. The bottom at 2337 might be re-visited again if prices are not able to get past 2363 on the current bounce. A break of 2337 should lead to a test of 2322 and that should be the lowest the market could go while being in generally bullish mode. I am still hoping for a market rally after the correction but it better get started soon or risk a much bigger correction.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 10






















Prices have continued to trade sideways but failure to gain bullish traction will likely lead to a test of 2344 or even 2322 in the next few sessions. Still, once the correction is over, we should see a rally to new all-time highs before any real selling takes place.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 7






















The market closed basically flat for the day but now the Trend Average has turned bearish. There is not impulse so far to the downside, so there is still hope for a bullish move next week. However, it's best to be cautious now given geopolitical events. Military action in Syria has overshadowed the seemingly positive US-China summit, so it remains to be seen if there are any other surprises this weekend. No news will be good news IMO, but we will see.

Have a great weekend!

The market made a lower low today at 2344 and bounced substantially from that point for most of the day to close right on the Trend Average. If the count posted is correct, we should start seeing a W3 impulse in the next few sessions to new all-time highs. There is obviously room for lower prices, but I think a rally from this point on would be ideal for the "Sell in May" scenario. We'll find out soon.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 6






















Prices counter-rallied somewhat today but not enough to close over the TA. Technically, the sell off from yesterday could be an ABC with a new 5 count starting today. But if there is a lower low tomorrow, then we will have 5 waves down from 2378, which could lead to more selling ahead. But with the US-China summit taking place, I think the outcome should lead to a rally as I am sure there will be "good news" for both sides.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 5






















Prices started the day bullish by impulsing higher and taking out the most recent high at 2370. However, a sudden reversal came after the Fed announced they will start cutting back the $4.5 trillion balance sheet. In the general sense, it's a good thing since it shows confidence in the economy and will give room the the Feds in the future when the next recession hits. The stock market didn't like the news much but as long as support continues to hold, the path of less resistance is up. With that said, another close under the TA and we will likely see another test of the 50 DMA if not the 2322 low.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - April 4






















The market closed marginally higher today after a minor correction early in the morning. The close continues to be above the TA and there is a small ascending triangle as well, so the pattern favors upside tomorrow that should challenge and probably exceed the recent high at 2370. Hard to say what will be the catalyst for the next market rally but maybe the US-China summit might be used as an excuse? Trump did a lot of China bashing during his campaign but has changed his tone lately about the subject, so maybe they will come out with something that looks "constructive" to everyone which is ultimately bullish for the markets.
