S&P 500 Index in Primary Wave Y


 

Upward primary wave [X] started in mid-February is typically a wave inside the complex W-X-Y wave structure to link two corrective sequences. The next wave after wave [X] will be primary wave [Y] that should be a major downward wave as a zigzag correction, and it would be more dramatic than the flat correction of wave [W].

Currently the SPX is in downward primary wave [Y] and it will have an intermediate corrective (A)(B)(C) wave sequence. Now it is in downward intermediate wave (A) which will have 12345 sub-waves. Currently it is in downward sub-wave 3.

Last week sub-wave 3 broke below the bottom horizontal support line of a 2-month descending triangle pattern. The nearest downside price target for sub-wave 3 is projected at 2080 based on a breakdown from the descending triangle.

Shanghai Composite Index: Intermediate-Term Pictures


 

Since the middle of last year, downward intermediate wave (A) has developed a falling wedge on the Shanghai Stock Exchange Composite index with a 12345 sub-wave sequence.

This year upward intermediate wave (B) has gone nowhere and its 12345 sub-waves have been compressed in a 10-month shallow rising wedge pattern which is an ending diagonal according to Elliott Wave principle.

This ending diagonal is a bearish pattern because downward intermediate wave (C) will start once intermediate wave (B) ends. Sub-wave 5 is the last upward wave of intermediate wave (B).
