4/9 – 3:25 p.m. New York time

With less than an hour to go before the closing bell, SPY has stayed within the prior trading day’s range. Basically nothing has changed on the chart, and I have taken no action on my positions in the ETF, which tracks the S&P 500.

4/9 – 10:10 a.m. New York time

The S&P 500, which underlies my positions in the exchanged-traded fund SPY (analyses here and here). In Elliott wave terms, the index continues to work through what appears to be a 2nd wave correction to the upside within a downward 3rd wave at the Minuette level, my preferred level for trading.

At this point there’s no need to exit the positions and I have no new positions in sight.
