4/6 – 3:15 p.m. New York time

The S&P 500 has continued to decline, benefiting my bear positions on exchange-traded fund that tracks the index, SPY (analyses here and here). The percentage of maximum profit on each position stands below 25%; my goal is to exit at 50% or higher.

No exits today, and I have no new positions in sight. Look for The Week Ahead to be posted on Saturday.

4/6 – 10:40 a.m. New York time

My Elliott wave count of the S&P 500 is unchanged from yesterday. I plan no exits from existing positions at this point, nor do I plan to enter any new positions.

I took a look at FXE, which tracks the EUR/USD exchange rate, but have decided not to pursue a trade at this point.
