2/15 – 3:05 p.m. New Yor time

No change in the situation today. I am standing down until the market moves in a way favorable to my reading of the trends: We’re in an upward correction in the broad market within a larger downtrend.

In Elliott wave terms, I’m looking for a downward impulse wave at the Minuette degree before re-entering the markets. The Minuette degree is roughly equivalent to the daily Fisher Transform metric that I monitor for trend signals.

2/15 – 11:40 a.m. New York time

The counter-trend rally continues in equities. I anticipate no trades today. In Elliott wave terms, so far the corrective rise has  retraced about 50%, a Fibonacci level, of the downtrend’s 1st wave.
