Given the short amount of time until expiration, I entered this position before the Ross Hook bar had ended. His has set a higher low and higher high, and is trading near the top of its range. However, a decline below $2,109.84, the lowest low today, would make the trading signal invalid.

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, Investopedia, StockCharts and Wikipedia.
See my post "Chart Analysis: Nomenclature" for an explanation of my method for labeling waves on the chart.
