Binary Options S&P 500

All times are New York time.

The S&P 500 (Nadex:SPX) opened the day with a strong rise to the upside. This is contrarian to the downtrend that has been in effect since the June 22 peak, so under my draft rules, posted last night, I can't enter a binary options bull position to take advantage.

Todays uptrend is wave 4 {-2}, and it will be followed by wave 5 {-2} to the downside. Under my rules I'll be unable to trade the 5th wave, also, because they tend to be short and tricky (although not always; there are 5th-wave extensions).

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.
