Last week I wrote: "We got as expected the small further up move the past week. The small gap at the start of the a correction wave is not closed yet. Maybe this will still happen the coming week. If this gap is not closed it is not a good sign and it may take a long time before being closed in the future. The first down target is the 200-day average and the low side of the Bollinger band. The target for the C-wave correction is around 2450, completing a C-wave with the same size as the A-wave, also... Continue reading

Last week I wrote: "In my last comment I wrote" There may be a small further move up to complete the wave e of the triangle formation. That should be the end of the triangle correction followed by a continuation of the down move." The index moved up to the R1 pivot resistance. It looks like we are still missing a small move up to complete the b-correction wave. Best estimate is a move up to 2750. That will close the first gap that appeared near the start of the a-wave. Moving down from that level, there is a gap... Continue reading

Last week I wrote: "The low of the week was around 2595. The pullback on Friday closed the week just a bit lower compared to the week before. The index found support on the 200 day simple moving average and the low side of the Bollinger bands. Note the triangle formation with lower tops and higher bottoms. Assuming that the index is in a downtrend started with wave A, we now have the triangle waves abcd completed. There may be a small further move up to complete the wave e. That should be the end of the triangle correction followed... Continue reading

Last week I wrote: "The 'b' wave correction went up to the 61.8% Fibonacci retrace (grey) over the a-wave down, the upper side of the Bollinger band and the 100-day average. I assume this will be the end of the b-wave up correction. The expert colored the candles green but, I would not open a long position because, I think the b-wave is complete and we should expect a continuation of the downtrend to targets 2550 and 2400 completing the C-wave. These targets are respectively the S1 and S2 support levels of the current month, confirmed by a downward 161.8%... Continue reading

Last week I wrote: "The past week made another pullback to the PP-pivot level of the month. This level is also the 50% retrace over the last wave 'a' down. My feeling is that the up correction will probably go up a fraction higher to the 61.8% Fibonacci retrace or even more if the current wave is a wave '2' and not a wave 'b'. The funny thing is that if the 61.8% retrace is reached and we make a Fibonacci projection down over the 'b' wave that moment in time, the 161.8% target is exactly the S2-pivot target level....

Last week I wrote: "The low past week reached exactly the 161.8% Fibonacci target. Last week I mentioned: "I assume that this consolidation phase and pullback is not yet finished. I expect a correction up to previous price support once more becoming price resistance." From the low of the week, there was an up correction to a previous price high and, the PP pivot level of the month. There is a convergent move between the index and the SRSI indicator. This usually means that the last up move is just a correction and that the down move will continue after... Continue reading

Last week I wrote: "Last week I predicted a pullback writing: "A lower bottom both in price and the SRSI confirms a possible pullback the coming week. Also, the possible higher bottom with the low of wave A and lower bottom in the SRSI is a hidden divergence also confirming that a pullback should be expected." I assume that this consolidation phase and pullback is not yet finished. I expect a correction up to previous price support once more becoming price resistance. This is the level around 2700. However since we do not have a wave C already we must... Continue reading

STwo weeks ago I wrote: "As expected last week the index finished the wave B up correction on Tuesday and started the move down for Correction wave C. As I already mentioned with the weekly chart, the B retrace is rather large which possibly means the the correction is not a B-wave but, rather an impulse wave 2 correction. For now I just leave the current annotation because, both expect a further move down. The first target is 2450. If it is a wave 3 that is coming, the first target will be lower to around 2380. Note the negative... Continue reading

Basically this means that price is making a correction. If this is the case we are probably finishing a B-wave and now expecting the C-Wave down. A and C waves are generally about the same size. If this will be the case here, the index can go down to 2400 to finish the C-wave" But, perhaps I overlooked the other possibility meaning, the index is not making a first... Continue reading

A week ago I wrote: "The first down target around 2700 was broken already on Monday but, price made an up correction on Tuesday to the same level. The lowest low was reached on Friday with 2532.7, finding support on the 200 day average. The start of the move down was announced by a negative divergence, the green arrows, with higher index prices and a lower SRSI top. Now you can note a lower index bottom with also a lower SRSI bottom. This is a convergent move. We should expect some upward correction that already started on Friday up to... Continue reading

A week ago I wrote: "The stochastic RSI made a negative divergence with the index and started a down reaction with a price gap, followed by a large down candle with another gap on Friday. The next down target is around 2700, the 50 day price average, the low side of the volatility band and a price support level. I do expect some pullback when this level is reached.

A week ago I wrote: "The index broke the 423.6% Fibonacci target from 2 weeks ago. Now even the R3 Pivot level of the current Month is broken. However, price is far away from the lower side of the volatility channel and from all averages. The Stochastic RSI may be making a negative divergence with the index. Normally this means that a pullback is not far away. As mentioned with the weekly chart I expect a reaction around the 3000 level. On the other hand I expect a continuation of the move after a correction. The longer term Fibonacci target... Continue reading

Last week I wrote: "The reaction was limited to what we had already the previous week on Friday. The first week of the year was apparently reserved for celebrating the good trading year 2017. We are getting more and more gaps that need to be filled. The index reached the R2 pivot resistance of the current month and is possibly on the way to a next Fibonacci target at 2805. My best guess is that this 2805 is the top for the coming weeks. We will most probably get at least a small correction from this level. Read my comments... Continue reading
