S&P 500 (Nadex:US500) 11:57 a.m. entry: Short the >2110 strike for a $69.76 debit with the index price at $2,115.56.

Using Elliott wave analysis, I counted Thursday's index high of $2,126.65 on Thursday as being the peak of wave 3 to the upside. The index is now in a 4th wave correction to the downside.

A strong reversal to the upside would mean that wave 4 had run its course. A rise above any of the two resistance areas -- $2,119.40 and $2,124.48 -- would be evidence of a reversal. A rise above the peak would be positive confirmation that wave 4 was complete and wave 5 to the upside had begun.

My trading rules can be read here.

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.
