3/5 – 3:05 p.m. New York time

One trade today, exiting my bear position on FXE.

3/5 – 12:05 p.m. New York time

I have exited FXE and shall update the analysis with results shortly.

3/5 – 11:35 a.m. New York time

FXE remains ambiguous in is direction, and I shall exit today, probably for a loss.

The Fisher Transform on GLD has given an uptrend signal on the daily chart. My Elliott wave count suggests that the trend at the level I trade remains down. I place GLD as in a 1st wave down at the Minuette degree within a C wave down at  larger Minor degree.

A Minor wave can take months to work through, so as long as this count holds, I’m confident that my bear position is following the trend correctly. So I won’t act immediately on GLD.

My IWM bear position remains downtrending both on the Fisher Transform metric and the Elliott wave count.
