SPY has peaked and this morning began its next Elliott wave down. I count it as a B wave with an ongoing correction. It could rather be a 3rd wave down. As the movement progresses I’ll adjust my count as needed.

The SPY chart covers 10 days using 5-minute bars.


My position on SPY expires at the end of next week. My intent is to hold on until perhaps as late as Wednesday, and then exit. On Monday, when I have more verification that this is indeed the beginning of the downward wave, then I shall consider when I should entered the next position with a later expiration.
