Outof interest, Ive also drawn the Elliott Wave channel (dashed blue) that would encompass theimpulse.

The market should theoretically reverse around thisnumber. A maximum thrust target of 125% of the widest leg of the triangle would also peg theconclusion around $13.48. The triangle Wave (4) appears to have concluded at $11.15, which makesthat level key support for bulls (longs). A reversal pattern into the mid $13s should trigger red warninglights for bulls. A break of $11.15 should be troubling.</p><p>alt:b</p><p>-2-</p><p>(1)</p><p>(2)</p><p>[1]</p><p>[2]</p><p>[3]</p><p>[4]</p><p>(3)</p><p>[5]</p><p>[.a]</p><p>[.b]</p><p>[.c]</p><p>[a]</p><p>[b]</p><p>[c]</p><p>[d]</p><p>[e](4)</p><p>[1]</p><p>[2]</p><p>[3]</p><p>[4]</p><p>(5)[5]</p><p>REPRINTED 3/7/2010</p></li><li><p>8/14/2019 Friday Update 12 March 2010</p><p> 5/9</p><p>Not much has changed since the last update.

That level would be -w-=-y- and also an(a)=(b) within -y-. This would produce a marginally higherhigh on the S&amp;P 500. One wonders if this is what the marketis going for: a new high that brings in a new wave buyersbefore the actual conclusion?</p><p>Andys Technical Commentary__________________________________________________________________________________________________</p><p>- X -( Z )c</p><p>1044.5</p><p>a</p><p>(a)</p><p>(b)</p><p>-w-(c)</p><p>1112.3</p><p>1086</p><p>(c)</p><p>-x-</p><p>-y-(c)?</p><p>S&amp;P 500 (60 min.)</p><p>(a)</p><p>(b)</p><p>(a)[5]</p><p>[1]</p><p>[2]</p><p>[3]</p><p>[4]</p><p>(b)</p><p>1154</p><p>61.8% of -w- from</p><p>-w-s conclusion</p><p>REPRINTED 3/10/2010</p></li><li><p>8/14/2019 Friday Update 12 March 2010</p><p> 7/9</p><p>Dollar Index (120 min)</p><p>Weve been talking about 79.53 as a critical support area for several weeks now. It seems likeits now going to be vigorously tested as the recent whoosh lower does not look completed. Ifthis is an a=c coming down, the 79.35 is another target, so 79.3579.53 can be viewed as asupport zone. Ive labeled the pattern above as an Head and Shoulders, but this pattern rarelydevelops anymore. In other words, I dont believe it, but will remain open to the possibility.Perhaps we get a neckline break that convinces the armchair technicians to short thismarket, right before we launch higher to complete the d wave? Some technicians mayalready view the situation as a broken neckline.</p><p>Andys Technical Commentary__________________________________________________________________________________________________</p><p>79.53</p><p>KEY SUPPORT</p><p>Left Shoulder</p><p>HeadHead</p><p>Left Shoulder</p><p>a?</p><p>b?</p><p>c?</p><p>Neckline?</p></li><li><p>8/14/2019 Friday Update 12 March 2010</p><p> 8/9</p><p>Dollar Index (240 min)</p><p>Dollar Bulls have had little to fret over the last few weeks.

However, the next new high could be a bull trap--the price</p><p>action on setting a new high will be crucial. Does it just slice through andkeep powering?
