Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 18






















Prices closed substantially down as anticipated but it is still way off the lows made last week. If we see prices rally back above 2816 then 2710 will likely be a an important bottom. However, if selling continues in the next few sessions then we should see 2710 challenged and broken to finish up the 5-count posted.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 17






















The market closed flat today after a volatile day. Still, the count posted remains in place and I assume selling will start in the next session or two. If last week's low is not tested then I will change the count to reflect the next best option.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 16






















I was expecting the market to head down today but I was wrong as prices rallied much higher. Technically, the bearish count is still viable but it would also mean the 5-count was completed at last week's low. Either way, prices remain under the TA and until that changes,  rallies should be considered corrections of a bearish trend proven otherwise.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 15






















Prices closed down today but I think the bulk of the selling will come tomorrow or Wednesday. Based on the count, I assume last week's low will be breached to finalize the 5-count posted. The big question is whether this recent move is part of yet another correction of the beginning of the end of the bull market.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 12






















Prices counter-rallied today after very strong selling in the last couple of sessions. The count calls for another lower low or at least a test of the 2710 low made yesterday so we will see next week if there will be a tradable bottom in place. I have seen a long term count that calls for one last very bullish leg to new ATH but the market could well go into a bear market now given the fact that prices have more than quadrupled from its 2009 low of 666 without a bear market. Fundamentally speaking, the economy is great right now but trade tariffs, higher interest rates and someone using twitter uncontrollably could bring everything down.

Have a great weekend!

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 11






















The market continued its sell-off today as expected but the W3 could have ended at 2710. So we could see a bounce in the short-term and then another lower low to finish the count. The selling has been intense and at this pace the market could turn negative for the year. The next significant support level is at 2676 and 2594.

Medium Term Trend = Bullish trend being challenged

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 10






















I had been posting the bearish 1-2 count since late September and was almost invalidated last week but if there was any doubt about it, today's action confirms this count. I mentioned a possible test of the 200 DMA yesterday and today's close is just barely 20 point above it (2765) so we could see that test as soon as this week. I thought it was going to take more time for this test but selling today was strong and the strongest since March.

Medium Term Trend = Bullish
Long Term Trend = Bullish

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 9






















Prices fell slightly again today but one could argue for a bottoming pattern if lows are respected in the next day or two. However, if selling continues and support breaks then we could see prices go much lower, possibly even testing the 200 DMA in the next few weeks.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 8






















Prices made a lower low today before bouncing back to close the day basically unchanged. The close was barely above the 50 DMA and if the market starts closing below this level then we should see selling accelerate.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 5






















The market broke key support at 2886 and ended testing the 50 DMA before bouncing somewhat towards the end of the session. This breach of support and close below the TA turns the trend bearish and now opens the doors for a bigger correction. One could argue for the end of an intermediate 5th wave at 2940 and if that count is correct then we will see a correction for several weeks.

Short Term Trend = Bearish
Medium Term Trend = Bullish
Long Term Trend = Bullish

Not much to add today. The trend continues to support more upside but the pattern looks bearish and we should find out if substantial selling is coming in the next day or two.

Elliott Wave Stock Market Update - October 1






















The market had a strong opening today after news of a new trade pact with Canada had been reached but a bulk of the gains were given up at the end of the day. The trend continues to support more upside but the pattern looks bearish and we should find out if substantial selling is coming in the next day or two.
