The market opened higher today, pulled back, and then took off to the upside with its best rally since the decline from SPX 1985 began. From the SPX 1985 orthodox high we counted a double zigzag: 1970-1979-1962-1976-1925-1937-1916. We then estimated that SPX 1916 may have been the downtrend low since there was a confluence of various technicals at exactly that level. Since that Friday low the market has rallied: 1932-1921-1943. This could be a 1-2-3, or an a-b-c B wave. Until the market enters the 1956 pivot range (1949-1963) a B wave is possible. If a B wave, then a retest of lows, or slightly lower, is likely next. If the beginning of a new uptrend, Int. v, the market should enter the 1956 pivot range. We should know the answer in the next couple of days.
Short term support is at the 1929 pivot and SPX 1916, with resistance at the 1956 and 1973 pivots. Short term momentum hit overbought today during the rally. The short term OEW charts turned positive at SPX 1932, with the reversal level now SPX 1933. Best to your trading!
