I've added in an internal Elliott wave count within wave 3 {-1} to the downside. The big dive that began at about 10:25 a.m. is a third wave within a third wave, which is a powerful combination. In this case, it was powerful enough to bring my position to within 5% of full profit, so in line with my usual practice, I took the money and ran.

The next step to look for today will be a bar closing with a higher low, signally a possible reversal of wave 3 {-2} to the upside. I shall treat that as an opportunity for a long binary options play.

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.
