Market Dashboard - bullish signs showing


Today was another rough day for the bulls.  I just happened to be watching the market at 1330 EST when the drop off really took hold.  Interestingly, there was no apparent breaking news event that sparked the whole thing.. just a big whoosh that left commentators scrambling to fill the story.   I was comfortable with the knowledge that it was probably some fashion of the Elliot Wave "C" wave.  I posted the picture below a few days ago when we were at the A-B transition.  The B wave took shape, and now I believe we are somewhere in the C wave.  Question is, when will it end?  There are lots of advanced formations that the C wave could take on, but ultimately I'm reliant on RUM wave analysis to determine the next entry point.  Today we see Primary Indicator #2 reversing course with the black needle leading the grey needle.  This is moderately bullish.  My concern is that the Leading Directional Indicator is still bearish.  Also, the C leg often approximates the size of the A leg.  The target for this would be in the neighborhood of 1875 to 1880 on the SPX.  The time geometry of it (if it turns out to be parallel to the A wave) would have us rebounding midday on 6 Aug.

The bottom line is that I think we are in store for a little more of the C leg before rebounding to new highs.
