3:10 p.m. New York time

SPY is continuing to work its way up, and I shall wait until next week at the earliest before re-establishing a bear position.

11:25 a.m. New York time

SPY reached at peak at the very small degree I’ve been tracking, the Tiny degree {-5). See my discussion yesterday and my chart talk the day before.

This chart of SPY is a 20-day chart with hourly bars. It clearly shows three waves to the upside, ending in a 4th wave downward correction at the Tiny degree, and I now anticipate a 5th wave to the upside, completing the Minuscule {-4} degree rise.


Bottom line: I should consider re-establishing my position either today or Monday. I’ll be keeping an eye on it and make a decision later today.
