11:15 a.m. New York time

The week opens with SPY continuing its downward course, which my Elliott wave analysis counts as wave 1 of the Minuette degree within wave 3 of the larger Minute degree {+1}

The SPY chart covers 20 days with 20-minute bars.


My SPY options position expires Aug. 17, which would give me an exit on Friday, Aug. 10, or perhaps Monday, Aug. 13.

With the Minute degree 3rd wave having begun, it’s also time to consider opening new positions with a later expiration.
