My Elliott wave count shows the sideways correction of the wave 5 peak continuing, with the present wave being wave B {-1}.

My bull play on Monday produced a loss because in my attempt to jump on to the momentum, I managed to get in near the peak.'s loss I've modified my entry practice to require a Joe Ross Hook (named after the famous trader who wrote a series of books about his methods). The Hook in a reversal from an uptrend is one bar ending in a lower high immediately after a previous higher high., and from a downtrend, a bar ending in a higher low after a previous lower low.

I'll use Elliott wave analysis to keep me out of trades signaled by Ross when the signal fails to match the wave analysis.

Ross talks about the Hook in most, maybe all, of his books. The book I'm using is his Day Trading by the Minute (1997).

Elliott wave analysis tracks patterns in price movements. The principal practitioner of Elliott wave analysis is Robert Prechter at Elliott Wave International. His book, Elliott Wave Principle, is a must-read for people interested in this form of analysis, as is his most recent publication, Visual Guide to Elliott Wave Trading

Several web sites summarize Elliott wave theory, among them, InvestopediaStockCharts and Wikipedia.

See my post "Chart Analysis: Nomenclature" for an explanation of my method for labeling waves on the chart.
