Your thoughts on the stock market? I thought it rolled over last week but there is a lot of strength this week especially in the higher risk assets like those in the Nasdaq, and the underlying technicals of today's move are strong, i.e. advance/decline ratio and up/down volume. 1422 is a key area obviously for the S&P but the EW count I have is quite ugly if it in fact made an impulsive decline last week. On the daily, momentum and volume continues to be weak on the whole move up so the rally over the past few weeks is very exhausted and due to reverse. But I'm looking for the "timing" factor. This also should tie into JPY strength, and the JPY has weakened very far, especially against the USD.
Any thoughts? Counts?

60 minute chart of the EUR/CHF for those that trade it. My current take. It looks like a very clear 5 waves up. At the least it should be due for a nice correction down. Any other thoughts around?

I quite agree with your EURCHF.

Boy, was it ever tight! It almost violated the count (origing of wave 1 at 1.6340 on May 6) by only something like less than 5 pips.
Hopefully, from now we will be OK. The last subminuette wave c was an ending diagonal on the 5 min chart; nothing wrong with that. It is just that it was not a clear 5 wave count (waves overlapping which was slightly confusing).

EURUSD 4 Hour Chart...
I think this is what's going on with EURUSD on the 4 hour chart... Looks like a good buy at the moment...
Now isn't that an artistic chart... lol

You are absolutely correct that this Nasdaq correction is running out of steam. But, hey, I've been saying that for a while and Nasdaq keeps defying gravity and sanity. But we all know that this correction MUST COME TO AN END. So far, we reached the point of 50% fibo retracement, so the end of the correction might be little closer.

So, one day, quite soon, they will wake up and smell the flowers.
But for now, they are still lining up to the madhouse.

I counted 5 waves down and the retrace to 2 on the 5 min is where I bought.
My stop is above the 146, top of formsr high.
Good luck with our trade!!

Prior low to the lowest low now on the 15min chart reched oversold levels @ 20 while the lowest low barely reached even level 30.
It would seem to me that this could be cause for an anomaly in my wave count.
then if you check the scenario and the fib readings, we see that the lowest low @ 1.9364 is 132% of prior swing and the next swing is 161.8% of the "a" leg. To me this could be a scenario for an irregular flat wave. so we may still see further fall for Cable.
hedging ( @ 1.9451 SHORT ) my 2 previous long trades now but will be willing to take some loss here incase it continues to go up. SL will be at 1.9473 potential wave "c" end of the irregular flat.
if this continues to go down, then this could be a wave 3 inside a 5th wave. so it should be fast too.
I would appreciate hearing the thoughts of others who aslo use stochastics as part of their EW count routine.

Thanks for the better count

How about a contracting triangle as an alternative count?
I still have bias for a possible last dip for Cable for a 5th wave. Price is still contained inside a potential contracting triangle.
A jump above 1.9473 would cause me to abandon additional downward move for this pair.
But should it break out to the downside, it is likely to achieve 1.9347 which the depth equal to the largest depth of this contracting triangle beginning at the wave "e" end
update: replaced the chart to show the FIBS and the target

EG, I'm quite bullish on cable right now. The first reason is the cable count itself which I posted before. Reason #2 is the the fundamental side - according to the data we've seen lately I don't think BoE would be cutting rates anytime soon. And the third reason is EURGBP. It is getting into a sell zone in my opinion which is bullish for the GBP. On that particular setup I see one more push higher to .8000 and maybe a bit more but anything above 0.8000 represents a good R:R with a stop above FE 1.62(0.8069) for the move to the previous low of wave (A).

B waves have only 3 waves (a-b-c), not 5.
Your scenario is plausible though!

So Brad, do you have a daily count for this pair? Here is a possible count. Looks like it's in wave 3 of c down. Lower channel and 38.2 Fib level support are between 0.7375 - 0.7300. So it looks like the pair still have another 300+ pips to fall.

As for cable who knows but i lean towards a bullish stance, EURUSD i have to say i am still in the bear camp and not with Jamie on this one as far as a bounce is concerned. One reason being i feel the USDCHF as further to go, i will post a updated chart later.
