[EOD] Stocks -
As mentioned in the 725am entry, time-cycle, wave structure and global relative strength/relative value suggest that a meaningful low in stocks might be approaching.
DAX shows a nice five wave decline that is approaching its end.
As long as the Aug 22nd low in SPX holds, there's a chance for the next advance to make a new recovery high.
A break of Aug 22nd low (the proposed benchmark low, warning) and the Aug 8th low (nominal low, confirmation) would suggest that the sell-off from the nominal low is the initial leg of the decline. Note that INDU came very close to its Aug 22 low, unconfirmed by other indices but worth monitoring.
In either case, the next advance (either as a march to new recovery highs or wave -up or (B)-up rebound will likely exceed current market levels.
Please see intraday charts and Moment of Truth (9/9/11) for details.
