I placed no trades today.

In Elliott wave terms, SPY continues its 3rd wave down at the Subminuette level. Within that movement I see Tuesday’s low as being the 3rd wave a lesser degree, perhaps Micro, perhaps a degree below that. Today’s bump back to the upside at the opening would be an A wave within a 4th wave correction within that lower degree.

As one of my favorite sci-fi writers puts it,

“Wait a bit, Tyek,” Farad’n said. “There are wheels within wheels here.”

 —Children of Dune, by Frank Herbert.

The continuation of the Subminuette 3rd wave counsels holding on to my positions: SPY options (here and here) and shares in the inverse S&P 500 fund SPXU,

The continuation of the Fisher Transform in downtrending mode on both the daily and monthly charts buttresses that counsel.
