4/4 – 3:15 p.m. New York time

I entered no new positions today and exited none.

4/4 – 11:25 a.m. New York time

The S&P 500 remains in a 3rd wave down by my count using Elliott wave analysis. This mornings price decline brought one of my bearish vertical spreads on SPY to 27% of maximum potential profit, and the other to 10%. My goal is 50% or better, so I am taking no action this morning.

I have no prospective new positions today.
