SPX at 3:13 p.m., 2 days 30-minute bars
The price reversed once my spread was established and moved back toward the upside. At this point the goal became to exit one leg of the spread for a profit, and then do likewise with the other. A lower high at the 3 p.m. bar (marked with an arrow) was a signal to exit the lower, bullish options.

Trade #1 is marked in red, Trade #2 in blue.

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.
