The Elliott wave analysis shows wave 3 to the upside underway as the day opened.  Upon entry I noted that a decline below the $2,119.97 market price, marked with a yellow oval, would suggest that wave 3 may be beginning a retracement to the downside.

And indeed, the price did drop below that level in a shallow pullback from the peak. Going forward, a beak above $2,126.65 will mean that wave 3 to the upside is still in progress. A decline below $2,118 will suggest that a downward correction is in progress, perhaps wave 4 or perhaps a correction internal to wave 3.

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.
