ES futures made a lower low - which could be counted as a fifth non-overlapping wave downward, then whipped around for the remainder of the session. The turn-around was not at all surprising as the "first new trading day of the month" occurs in the next cash session, and it is likely the inflows from the 401k's, pension funds, quarterly and year-end company bonuses, dividend reinvestment plans, etc. will lift the market.
|ES Futures - 4 Hr - Some Kind of Wave ((4))|
Today's initial lower prices did what they needed to do to get the Elliott Wave Oscillator below the zero line and in position for a ((4))th wave. So, looking at the possible inflows ahead, it is entirely possible the ((4))th wave is over at this time. And it depends how the downward wave is counted. (There is one way to count it that suggests the down wave is a truncated double-zigzag.)
There are ways for a fourth wave to extend. This latest upward wave could be part of a b wave, but if it goes over the top, that seems like it would be less likely. Between now and January 2, one might want to keep an eye on the overnight markets.
Have an excellent end to the prior decade!
